The U.S. was not founded on "christian morals." The religion or lack thereof of the founders is irrelevant. The fact is they created a secular, constitutional republic, with separation of church and state, and freedom of (and from) religion. It's values were derived not from some "holy" book, but from British Common Law, which predated the "introduction" of christianity to Britain.

"Thirteen governments [of the original states] thus founded on the natural authority of the people alone, without a pretence of miracle or mystery, and which are destined to spread over the northern part of that whole quarter of the globe, are a great point gained in favor of the rights of mankind." - John Adams
