America’s Christian History According to Congress – Hidden in Plain View

This is the way the U. S. Congress used to talk.  Can’t it talk that way again…if voters want it to?

We are a Christian people…not because the law demands it, not to gain exclusive benefits or to avoid legal disabilities but from choice and education; and in a land thus universally Christian, what is to be expected, what desired, but that we shall pay due regard to Christianity?”
–  Senate Judiciary Committee Report, January 19, 1853

At the time of the adoption of the Constitution and the amendments, the universal sentiment was that Christianity should be encouraged.  …In this age there can be no substitute for Christianity.  …That was the religion of the founders of the republic and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants.
–  House Judiciary Committee Report, March 27, 1854

When was the U. S. government shorn of its Christian orientation?  Who voted to change America from a Christian nation to a secular nation?  Since the founders of this republic expected Christianity to remain the religion of their descendants, can’t we go back to it?
