Obama attacks Christianity and its place in America

As if Barack Obama’s problems with racism, anti-Americanism, and his radical socialist policies weren’t enough to scare off voters, now he’s attacking Christians and the place of Christianity in American government.

JERUSALEM – Some have been taking issue with largely unnoticed comments made last year by Sen. Barack Obama declaring the U.S. is “no longer a Christian nation” but is also a nation of others, including Muslims and nonbelievers.

The comments have been recently recirculating on Internet blogs.

“Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers,” Obama said during a June 2007 speech available on YouTube.

At the speech, Obama also seemingly blasted the “Christian Right” for hijacking religion and using it to divide the nation:

“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,” he said.

Asked last year to clarify his remarks, Obama repeated them to the Christian Broadcast Network:

“I think that the right might worry a bit more about the dangers of sectarianism. 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,” Obama wrote in an e-mail to CBN News senior national correspondent David Brody.

“We should acknowledge this and realize that when we’re formulating policies from the state house to the Senate floor to the White House, we’ve got to work to translate our reasoning into values that are accessible to every one of our citizens, not just members of our own faith community,” wrote Obama.

Obama claims we are not just a Christian nation but also a Muslim nation, a Hindu nation, and a non-believing nation. This shows a disturbing lack of judgement and knowledge on the part of Barack Obama. It’s true that the population of our country is made up of all sorts of people with different religious beliefs. Our nation itself, however, was founded on Christian principles and that foundation must remain in place.

Barack Obama clearly identifies that he is not just talking about the population of America and the various beliefs that exist. He is talking about the American government itself as he identifies that laws should be made based on all of these various beliefs. This is multi-cultural madness and an attempt to destroy the very foundation of our republic!

I believe American Democracy demands a Creator. I also know the evidence for our Christian heritage is everywhere you look! Whether it’s found on our monuments, our currency, in our pledge of allegiance, or the recorded words of our founders and other historical documents it’s very obvious to all.

In God we trust. The inscription on our money does not read, “in a god we trust.” One nation under God. Our pledge of allegiance does not say, “one nation under the gods.” So who is this God? He is the God of the Bible.

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the gospel of Jesus Christ.” -Patrick Henry

This fact must be taken into account by our leaders in Washington! Senator Barack Obama would instead give the tenets of Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Paganism, Atheism, and other world religions equal considerations when governing our nation. That should bother everyone who loves America and is well versed in the history and traditions of this blessed nation.
