I’d like to reply to Ms. Medley’s letter “A Secular Nation.”
Dear Ms. Medley,
After reading your letter in the Mountain Democrat, I went online and checked out the percentage of Christians in America, according to Wikipedia at wikipedia.org. In 2012 73 percent of Americans identified themselves as Christian. According to Gallup at gallup.com, 77 percent identified themselves as Christians in 2012. According to the Washington Times at washingtontimes.com, 78 percent of Americans identified themselves as Christians in 2011.
I wonder what would make you think we are a secular nation?
Additionally, according to the Washington Times, Christians make up roughly one-third of the world’s population, or 2.2 billion.
