Obama: No Longer Christian Nation

World Net Daily has an interesting piece about some comments made by Obama. Obama said:

“Whatever we once were, we’re no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

True, America is a diverse nation, now filled with peoples of many different religious backgrounds. But Obama’s comments imply a sense of hostility toward conservative Christians, especially when paired with this comment:

“Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and started being used to drive us apart. It got hijacked. Part of it’s because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, who’ve been all too eager to exploit what divides us.”

Are there fanatical, hate-filled people who rail against gays, liberals, Muslims, and a lot of other people? Some, of course. But liberals like Obama are very quick to accuse those who (gasp) actually have convictions about morality and absolute truth. The problem (which I was reading about earlier today) is the liberal atheistic mindset that sees acceptable “religion” as some fuzzy God-accepts-everyone-whatever-they-believe unitarianism. But if Jesus was the Way, the Truth, and the Life as He said He was, then that means Muslims who say Allah is the only god and Mormons who say Joseph Smith has brought us a new testament are wrong. If A is true, B must be false. Does that mean we hate each other? Not at all…we simply say what we believe, in the belief that telling others what we believe to be truth is the ultimate display of love. If anyone dares condemn sin or voice a belief in one way to God, liberals are quick to dish out some friendly terms like “hate speech” and “hate monger.” Why are liberals so hateful against those who simply don’t accept other faiths as true, but defend the rights of terrorists who delight in beheading infidels?

    I wonder when does Obama believe you were ever “just a Christian nation” and when does Obama believe you stopped being “just a Christian nation”.

    The “…government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion…”, according to Article 11 of the Treaty of Peace and Friendship, signed at Tripoli on November 4, 1796, and passed by the United States Congress.

    Article VI, Clause 2 of the U.S.A. Constitution states: “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land…”.

  2. David, I agree that America was, in the past, a Christian nation only in the sense that Christianity was not upheld as the “official” religion upheld by the state. But America’s roots are throughly and undeniably Christian in principle and structure, something today’s public education system is feverishly trying to deny. Those of our founding fathers who were not genuine Christians recognized the vital importance to Christian ethical principles as the foundation for a stable, free society. But why not read the founders in their own words?
