Despite first amendment; Do you believe that the U.S. federal government favor Christians and Christianity over another religion/non-religion?

Some examples...

-U.S. government follow Gregorian/Christian calendar based on approx. date of birth of Jesus Christ.
-U.S. government observe Christmas Day (Birth of Jesus Christ) as a holiday.
-Several U.S. states observe Good Friday (the Day Jesus Christ was crucified) as a holiday.
-Virtually only Christian presidents in past and only Christians basically have chance to become president.
-U.S. government adopted 'In God We Trust' as official motto and on currency.
-Blue Laws in certain parts of the nation (Christian sabbath).
- Sunday is a non-working day for federal and state employees (Christian sabbath).

80% of the U.S. are Christians, 2% Jews, <1% Muslims, <1%Buddhists/Hindus, 2-3% Agnostics/Atheists, ~15% not member of any religion.

U.S. federal government as an example do not follow Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist or any other religion's calendar or holiday.

There's definitely a Christian slant but not major at all. I'm atheist and certainly don't feel like there's some vast Christ Conspiracy meant to keep us down.

Not like some folks on this forum who think us godless heathens are about to take over the government and commit genocide in the name of science

There is a christian slant, which is only natural seeing how the majority of citizens are Christians.

Which makes the whole 'FOMG CHRISTIANS ARE OPPRESSED" hilariously stupid.
