When Did We Stop Considering Ourselves a Judeo-Christian Nation?

In April of this year President Obama went on an overseas trip and made a speech in which he declared that the United States does not consider itself a Christian nation. Let me say that phrase has been seen in a different format sometimes, where it is said that we are a Judeo-Christian nation. The phrase in either form in usually meant to say we have roots based in faith and the Bible, not that we have an official national religion.

This has been addressed in previous posts, including this one:

USA a Muslim Nation, Jewish Nation, or Christian Nation?

It was also addressed in Congress shortly after that. The video below is of a statement on the House floor by Congressman Forbes:
