The Treaty of Tripoli remains in force, so we can start there...

John doesn't realize that Jews have been in the United States before
it was the United States.  George Washington spoke at a Synagogue at
least once.

Neither, actually.  The American notion that governments derive their
just power from the consent of the governed is entirely unChristian.

Since Jews aren't being booted out of the United States, I'm willing
to believe that you and the frog in your pocket act as a Christian
nation in the same sense that the Conch Republic and Republic of
Texas acts as a nation: an amusement until a line of acceptable
behavior is crossed, a minor annoyance for law enforcement to handle
once the line is crossed.
