So, because our nation was founded on Christian principles, Christianity should be given more freedom then other religions? Certainly not. The founders were clear in the first amendment that the government CANNOT limit someone's freedom to exercise their religion, nor will the government establish a state religion.

Let's fall back to the definition of religion. "a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects"

So, the founding fathers created a country based on their "fundamental set of beliefs". Their religion. Therefore, to stray or vary from their basic system of beliefs would mean losing the foundation of our justice system.

This does not mean that the government will make all citizens become Christians. It does mean the government should stand fast and keep to the moral and ethical codes that it was founded on.
