The Value Of Being A Religious Nation

Are we a Judeo-Christian nation? It's the question we ask year after year. With very little effort, anyone can read about how our Founders were believers.

They didn't all agree about how to worship, but they relied on "providence" to guide them. The Founders set the example for us all by being respectful of each other's beliefs and coming together on issues they agreed about. Believing in God was one area on which they agreed. It's an important example for us all. This video from a Harvard professor, who happens to be a Christian, describes beautifully the value of being a religious nation. 

Top among the freedoms guaranteed to Americans by our Constitution is the freedom to practice the religion of our choice. The Founding Fathers believed religion is important in protecting the morals of our nation, since people who have faith in God believe in caring for and helping one another.
