"I think you're mistaken about this. There may be hundreds of millions of people in the US that claim to be Christian,"

I'm not mistaken. You're employing a fallacy called 'No True Scotsman.' Whether or not someone is a perfect Christian or if someone doesn't believe in the way you think they should, all of that is irrelevant to the question of 'are you an atheist.' What matters is whether or not that person believes in a god. If they do, they are a theist, and if not, they are an atheist. Placing additional qualifiers might satisfy some personal desire of yours to discredit the position of others, but it doesn't in any way invalidate their claim of belief.

"Yes, in the United States of America. Are you happy with the Liberty you have today? If not, it is because as a society we are departing from God."

I asked for empirical or rational evidence of a causal link. You provided only weak, unsupported correlations. To say that the USA is where it is due to a decline in religiosity is to fail to realize the increase in religiosity, as well as the myriad other factors which lead to our current state.

"Do you think it is a coincidence that every fighter for Liberty against the communist state happens to be a Christian and fighting for Christian values?"

This is simply false. Most libertarians are also atheists, check polling figures; check the statistics from Ron Paul voters in the republican primary; just look around you - liberty fighters, communism-opposed, and atheist - everywhere. The originators of liberty philosophy and many of its proponents are largely anti-religion, because religion and religious people are opposed to liberty more than most groups. Which groups most seek to enforce their morality on the populace through social policy? Which groups most defend laws which deprive people of individual liberty for the purpose of protecting them from themselves?

"In Truth, they are the same. To be against Jews for being Jews, is to be against God. And to be against God is to be against Christ."

This is a glaringly false equivalence.
When equivocating terms, they must bear truth in reverse.
In other words, 1 + 2 = 3, therefor 2 + 1 = 3, 3 = 2 + 1 and 3 = 1 + 2. Get it?

Therefor, if you conflate anti-semite with anti-god (your original claim was anti-faith, but I'll let that slide) then the reverse must be true, but it simply isn't. Being anti-god or anti-faith does not mean you are automatically anti-semite, and to suggest otherwise is disingenuous, condescending and/or ignorant. To not believe in a god has nothing to do with whether or not you hate or fear Semitic people. To not subscribe to Christianity does not mean that you by default believe in no gods. This is just another logical fallacy called false equivocation.
