This article contains a rather graphic description of what happened to one man for asking the question “How do I know who the true God is?” in a country with blasphemy laws, so I won't quote it, only link to it for those who want to read the whole thing. He was convicted for insulting Islam and Christianity by asking.
It goes on to reference studies about the 53% of the countries in the world which have laws criminalizing blaspehmy, apostasy, and defamation of religion, and the countries where people are socially hostile to anyone who disagrees with their religion. (those are also linked inside the original article)
So when we hear that this is a "Christian nation" or we need "God back in school" or that there's a "war on religion", is this really the type of environment people want to create?Answer Question

I don't want a Christian nation. I like freedom of religion.
