Michael Flynn surely didn't mean Judaism or Catholicism when he said America is a "Judeo-Christian" nation. So what did he mean?

Originally "Christian" was a derogatory term that both Jew and Pagan used to describe the hated followers of Christ Jesus. Judeo-Christian in simple terms is the differentiation from the older religion's connection to the newer religion. The Christians that escaped the tyranny of religious oppression from Europe came as colonists, and established communities where like believing people could have RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.
