The American population is entirely Christian

 

In a letter to Jasper Adams on May 9, 1833, Chief Justice Madison wrote:

“The American population is entirely Christian, and with us Christianity and Religion are identified. It would be strange indeed, if with such a people, our institutions did not presuppose Christianity, and did not often refer to it, and exhibit relations with it.”
