← Official Confirmation that the United States is NOT a Nation Founded on Christianity

The fact that this Treaty was drawn up as a result of incidents which occurred off the coast of North Africa towards the end of the 18th Century is surely not relevant.

What matters here is that the Treaty was read out loud before the assembled Senate and accepted without dissent and then signed by John Adams.

It might not get through to the fundies but there is enough there to make the more enlightened ones think.
