"We hold all truths to be self evident that all men are created equal. Endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights."

Note that this doesn't mention anything about Christianity. A Christian America is what David Barton, the "historian" Stewart is lambasting, is trying to promote with really really bad scholarship.

That quote was taken from the Declaration of Independence. The primary author of the Declaration of Independence was Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson was a deist and not a Christian.

Generally speaking, deism purports the existence of a creator deity, but one that does not intervene in human affairs. However, I'm sure there is variation.

Jefferson extolled some virtues of the Bible and Christianity, but was highly critical of it as well. He was infamous for the Jefferson Bible. It was his own version of the Bible in which he removed all the supernatural elements, and things he considered wrong.

Stop hating. believers dont hate you. They hate the sin you commit just as much as the sin they commit themselves. God loves all people, but he loves us too much to leave us the way we are. Ask him into your heart and he'll meet you just where you are. Sin and all. He said It is not the healthy that need a doctor, but the sick.

sorry people there is no such thing as seperation of church from state. Its seperation of church and state inclusive. read the founding fathers. Jon is ignorant if he beleives this. "We hold all truths to be self evident that all men are created equal. Endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights." If it werent for your creator you wouldnt have Gay rights according to the Constituion. Creator in the constitution Hmmm. Uh duh?!

I wish Jon had been this polite to President Obama when he was on his show.

It seems the crazier a guest's beliefs the more polite Jon is.
