As for those Church Leaders who are found of saying that The USA was ”founded” on Christian Principles, when trying to impose their “morals” upon he rest of the population, I am quoting the founders, who advocated the separation of Church and State.
John Adams said, in the Treaty of Tripoli, “The Government of the United States is not in any sense founded upon the Christian religion.” He also said, “It will never be pretended that any persons employed in that service had interviews with the gods, or were in any degree under the influence of Heaven, more than those at work upon ships or houses, or laboring in merchandise or agriculture; it will forever be acknowledged that these governments were contrived merely by the use of reason and the senses.”
James Madison said, “Every new and successful example of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters is of importance.”
Thomas Jefferson said, “In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own. It is error alone that needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.”
