Here's what it says:
Can a Jew be a Good American?
The U.S. Supreme Court has said that America is "a Christian nation." Many people find this, and the question above, to be offensive. "Aren't Jews Americans too?," they ask.
Certainly Jews can make a valuable contribution to American society, as the example of HAYM SALOMON demonstrates. Zillions of other examples could also be given. Jews can make America a better place.
In fact, probably the percentage of Jews who have made valuable contributions to America is higher than the percentage of "Christians" who are assets to America, rather than parasites. (I don't consider "secular Jews" to be Jews at all. I don't consider myself to be "anti-semitic" for saying that atheistic and communistic "Jews" have been a poison in America.)
But what would America have become if it were a Jewish nation instead of a Christian nation? What if the vast majority of its population had been Jewish and only a minority had been Christian?
The question deserves a thoughtful answer, one which is neither "anti-semitic" nor one simply dismissing the very question as "anti-semitic."
America's Founding Fathers were inspired by the Prophet Micah to create a nation where everyone could enjoy the safe and secure possession of his Vine & Fig Tree.
When Jews become more Jewish they become more Levitical, more Pharisaical; Judaism becomes a ghetto. When Jews became more American they became more Christian. (I speak now in the past tense, because America is no longer a Christian nation. Today, when Jews become more American they become more secular. Both Christians and God-fearing Jews are wary of the influence of secular Americanism on their children.)
Russell Kirk, in The Roots of American Order, p. 144, explains:
While many have recognized that America was built on "Judeo-Christian" principles, and our laws were based on the Ten Commandments and the rest of God's Law in the Older Testament, Dr. Kirk notes the obvious:
