America was the first enlightenment country and I would argue that is where our laws were primarily influenced from.The Catholic church became very evil, there is good reason why Protestants called the Pope the antiChrist.
You know that already though, and us regulars know you know that already.
One thing USA did right was keeping church and state (and assume legal system?) separate. Weren't your laws still influenced by Christian values? Aren't your laws very different to non- Christian countries?
As I said above I think the ethical doctrine of Christ is wonderful and quite valuable, set aside from cultural norms at the tim and the supernatural silliness that arose as he was deified.
