Do you self identify as an American? Do agree with everything the government does?

It's common knowledge that there are many churches, each with their own name and who don't see eye to eye, under the Christian banner. It's also common knowledge that anyone can call themselves Christian even if they're not. In view of the fact that you've reduced your argument to semantics, I accept your concession speech.

Go in peace, my son.
