While they did get many of our laws from Judeo Christianity, They also used the Roman form Government and tweaked it. They took the best from both. We also have freedom of religion along with freedom from religion. Now to answer the the post before me. The Church of Rome at this point was pretty weak. Most were trying to get away from the Church of England in which the the King was the head of. The only church you could go to was this Church. It was illegal to have any other form worship. It was especially illegal to be Catholic. So they were really running from a tyrannical government.

I for one do not belong to this school of thought.... But, it's questions like this that illustrate how poorly educated we are in general about our own nation. In my opinion we we're founded as a nation to ensure freedom of religion (among other things).... but it seems there are so many that want to bind us into Christianity. If we don't know where we came from, I fear where we are going as a nation.
