No, Individual Acts of Courage Gave this Country its Foundation

John Adams an abolitionist throughout his entire life and one of the most outspoken Christians of his time, signed the Treaty of Tripoli specifically stating America was not founded as nor was it created to be a Christian Nation.

Further, his son, John Q. Adams also known as a very outspoken Christian, refused to be sworn in on a bible stating Faith is a PRIVATE matter and instead chose to be sworn in on a Constitutional Law Book as he was pledging to uphold the LAW, not a religion.
