Contents: Why secularism? The basic logical and philosophical argument --
Atheists are not un-American : atheists are, despite congressman Rabaut, American through and through --
Religion and politics now : the political state of the arguments over secularism in the context of a presidential election --
Why Newt Gingrich's abuse of language matters to the defense of secularism --
History is not on the side of angels : the general history that supports secularism and separation of church and state --
The unchristian roots of the Fourth of July --
The unchristian nature of the US Constitution --
From the shores of Tripoli : why a 1796-1797 US treaty matters --
Ten Commandments : religious manifesto or political gimmick? --
Tolerance, toleration, and liberty : the historical context --
Secular schooling : public-school policies and curriculum questions affecting religious liberty --
Holy days and holidays in a secular society : who could be against a day off, anyway? --
He who is not with me is against me : contrary to the reported words of Jesus, secularism is not anti-Christian --
The naked public square? Clearing up confusion, even among secularists, about the difference between "public" and "civic" --
The big lie : morality and conscience in a secular society --
God's law : Sharia and the Ten Commandments versus the Constitution --
Blasphemy and heresy : where free speech and freedom of religion must meet --
What in the name of God? Why "god" doesn't belong in America's motto or in any official pledges of allegiance --
Questions : frequent questions or claims by Christian-nation proponents with specific answers to the claims --
Conclusion : the United States is and should remain a free country and not a Christian nation.
Responsibility: by Edward M. Buckner and Michael E. Buckner.
