It didn’t take long after the revolution that the new Constitution, declaring America be a Christian Nation, was adopted. The practice of any religion other than Christianity was banned. Jews and Muslims were the first to be persecuted, their synagogues and mosques either destroyed or shuttered. Those who were caught practicing their religion were rounded up and either imprisoned or deported.
Then Hindus, Buddhists, and even Mormons and other “non-conforming” Christians were targeted. Atheists were declared enemies of the state and were executed.
The United States became a theocracy. They said this could never happen in America.
