If you feel comfortable calling it that, feel free to do so.

That's the logic from what Michael Lind (who wrote a Salon.com article about Christian nation arguments) calls the "Anthropological argument".

From this argument, it would definitely not be a 'Judeo-Christian' nation either. It would be a patriarchal, slave-owning, native-american killing nation too I guess.
