Rewriting History: "a Christian land governed by Christian principles"

The Texas State Board of Education would simply be misinformed, superstitious, comical backwards boneheads if they weren't the ones deciding what goes into the textbooks of 5 million children for at least the next ten years. But as it is they are infuriating and scary... They must have slept through government and history class themselves because they seem to think our founders wanted America to be founded as a christian nation. That would be false, but here are two things that our founders did agree upon: 
First Amendment
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,"
 The Treaty of Tripoli
Art. 11. "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,"
