one of the idiocies often proclaimed by indian christists is: why are you hindus in america, a christist country?
the answer is: you are wrong, idiot. america is *not* a christist country, it is a secular country.
in fact some of the founders of the us and its declaration of independence/constitution writers, such as thomas jefferson and james madison (in the federalist papers), were downright contemptuous of christism, seeing it, rightly, as a dangerous imperialist cult. one of these guys said, i forget who, that when he tore out all the offensive pages from the bible, he found there was nothing left between the covers.
