About those historically absurd ‘Christian nation’ claims

Mainstream Baptist Bruce Prescott refers us to Timothy Dwight, a grandson of the theologian Joanathan Edwards, and who while president of Yale University said in a chapel service at Yale as the war of 1812 broke out:

The nation has offended Providence. We formed our Constitution without any acknowledgement of God; without any recognition of His mercies to us, as a people, of His government, or even of His existence. The [Constitutional] Convention by which it was formed, never asked even once, His direction, or His blessings, upon their labors. Thus we commenced our national existence under the present system, without God.
