A country founded on religion by men of religion.
That's totally wrong. What are you even talking about?

Founded on religion? Nonsense.

Though some puritans did leave England because of the church, well, you'll notice that there were already people here.

(Also, though they were really after gold, many of the Europeans who came to America when it was first being explored only got funding if they agreed to 'force' the native people to accept Jesus as their god. No one knows how many native Americans died, but it is most likely 10s of millions)

But as far as the founding of America, it had nothing to do with religion.
