USC Debate: “Is America a Christian Nation? Was It Ever?”

In 2009, Ray participated in a debate on the USC campus with atheist Herb Silverman regarding the founding principles of the nation.

My goal was to defend the well-documented historical and
spiritual truths lived out by our Founding Fathers, proving that America was indeed founded as a Christian nation. Although our country has ceased to honor some of the biblical principles that informed its foundation, much of America’s Christian heritage remains. These facts cannot be debated away.

This is part 1 of 9. If you’d like to watch more, the rest of the parts will play in YouTube’s playlist. Be sure to read Ray’s memo to his friends after the debate.
