You mention the “TP version of Christianity” and I think it is worth pointing out there are a lot of Christians who understand church state separation and support the idea of a secular government. I imagine they would find themselves left out in the cold in this version of America as well.

I also suspect tht “worship as they please” means “get their own way in every possible situation to the exclusion of everyone else”. And it’s always fun to see that the Amish would run afoul C) and D).

If the US was a “Christian nation” one would think that the Constitution would simply read “see bible”. However, it doesn’t, and I would suspect the reason to be that the Founding Fathers knew that even Christians can’t agree on what it “really” says. They depended on secular laws, not the primitive tribal nonsense the bible spews.
