Western democracy evolved in spite of Christianity. The Magna Carta came about, in part, as a response to Christian tyranny. People like John Locke saw first hand what happens when you mix religion and politics. Our forefathers did not want a theocracy or a monarchy, so they created a government based on the rule of law, not faith.
