So, I hear on CM that America is not/was not based on Christian values. Then how do you feel about the mention of God/Heaven in a lot of patriotic songs. Do you feel God should be removed from everything?
-Pledge of Allegiance (understand God was put in later-and now has been tried to be taken out)
-Star Spangled Banner:Full Version: "And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave")
-America the Beautiful
-America, My Country 'tis of Thee
-Battle Hymn of the Republic
-The Marines Hymnes : "If the Army and the Navy,Ever look on Heaven's scenes,They will find the streets are guarded By United States Marines"
Others things: Our Money, The Pledge,
Supreme Court Building: Moses & the 10 Commandments.
Washington Monument: Laus Deo -- "Praise be to God."
-Almost all significant building in D.C has biblical reference!
(Im sure there is plenty I am missing.. And yes, Im sure there is plenty that has no religious reference as well.)

God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
God save the Queen
That is just the first verse of my national anthem. I don't think it's worth getting my knickers in a twist over a 300 year tradition that I'm not going to change. So why bother? The word god may have no meaning but I'm still one of Her Majesty's loyal subjects and proud of it!

Actually the root movement for prayer being removed from schools did start with christians. As it has been pointed out here many times if a teacher leads a prayer it will be lead the way they worship. So how good are you with your child saying Hail Mary's or pulling out a mat for a muslim lead prayer? Many christians wanted it out because they did not want their children lead in in prayer by some one of a different faith.
