"As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion" understandably causes a knee-jerk modern, secularist understanding, "but what we hear is not what they said." This was a time when the first Islamic war of terror was being conducted on the US, and up to 22% of our national budget for decades went to paying ransom (not counting collections by churches). Muslims saw Americans in the same way they saw Europeans, as Christians ...and therefore, hated Crusaders out to destroy Islam. The US in this treaty was assuring the Muslims the US was NOT a Crusader nation, and our form of govt by its very blueprint was neither "Crusader" nor out to get ANY religion (now read the balance of the quote), as it was neutral on what people believed and practiced. However, to say the US govt was formed to be godless, without special affection for the general Christian religion, is to distort the Treaty into a modern, secularist meaning, and is an error. It is recognized the public at this time was VERY religious, as was John Adams. Neither would have supported it in any way, shape or form if the meaning then was the secularist's interpretation of today.
