    (In contrast to someone's wishful thinking and subsequent faux pas, Gallup, actually went out and asked and found out otherwise.)

    "And what I’m sure will be a crushing blow to CAIR, 0.5% are Muslims.

    PRINCETON, NJ — This Christmas season, 78% of American adults identify with some form of Christian religion. Less than 2% are Jewish, less than 1% are Muslim, and 15% do not have a religious identity. This means that 95% of all Americans who have a religious identity are Christians.

    These results are based on a compilation of 327,244 interviews conducted as part of Gallup Daily tracking from January–November 2011. The detailed breakdown shows that about a third of American Christians are Catholics, while two-thirds identify as Protestants or some other non-Catholic Christian religion. All in all, 82.5% of Americans have some form of religious identity.

    Separate Gallup questioning earlier this year shows that 92% of Americans say they believe in God. This suggests that the lack of a religious identity is not in and of itself a sign of the total absence of religiosity."

    The United States of America is a secular nation, with the largest religious group being various sects of Christianity. It is not a Christian nation, nor a Jewish nation, nor a Muslim nation.

    The minute Muslims get the numbers it will become a Muslim Nation if we are not careful.

    Correct.

    And it has a Constitution to ensure that remains the case.
