I recently had an argument with my sister who is a fundie, about our country being/not being founded on "Judeao Christian values".  I would like to discuss it further, but she already called me a bigot for not entertaining this fantasy, so I thought maybe some of you could help me out.

   What exactly ARE Judeao Christian values anyway? Does that term mean the same thing to everybody, or is it like their god, and everybody has a different idea about it? On what do they base the definition, and on what grounds is it supported?  And where oh where do they think these things are found in our founding documents? 

   I did a little search online, and it seems that they have latched on to the line in the constitution about all men having been endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights. From there they seem to have extrapolated an extremely elaborate fantasy which even includes the idea that "under god" and "in god we trust" were put there by our founding fathers.

   I would really like to hear what others have experienced regarding this. I would like to confront my sister, but I need some amo. Thanks!
