A Christian. or any other, America would send us back into the dark ages of religious persecution.
It seems to me that that the Marxist liberty=license crowd is using the deist argument to attemt to eliminate religion and not promote freedom of it. I believe they are specifically attacking Christianity because regardless of the past tryanny Christian churches laid foundation to our western culture and IMO that is exactly what they are trying destroy. Thus I believe the fight for Christianity is not so much a fight for Theocracy but a fight for our western culture. I mean honestly, who is trying to esatblish a theocracy? Certainly one can not equate the simple mention of God with the esablishment of a federal church?
No church has ever given freedom, yet many churches have enjoyed the freedom of religion made possible by our secularist founders.
Neither has any Government. In reality all Government's take away freedoms, our founder's understood that. I guess it might just boil down to whose law do wish to live by? Reason has given this country greatness, revelation has provided the glue that had kept us together. Do you really like what you see when you look forward into a post modern world?

the fight for Christianity
That line speaks volumes...You speak of the "Marxist liberty=license crowd", the fight for "western culture".
There is no fight. Never has been. Christianity under attack in America is BS. The handful of anti Christian kooks were ignored by mainstream America until Christian crusaders gave them attention.
You speak of "Marxist", but you obviously haven't read Marx. He was the original crusader against the "liberty=license crowd". Like Marx, religious fanatics use catchy slogans to spread fear and hate. This is not about the "simple mention of God". This is about the Christian hijack of God. God=Christian.
"America is a Christian nation" turns everyone who is not Christian into second class citizens. It is un-American and a danger to our Republic!
