JERUSALEM â€“ 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:...
US and (all western european countries) are NO christian countries . We are depraved countries.
from mountzion: ...It is unfortunate but true that most Christians in prosperous countries really donâ€™t have a real appreciation for the price that was paid for their salvation. In our selfishness, we often delude ourselves into thinking that we can have Christianity and the old, carnal lifestyle at the same time. Write out 1 Corinthians 6:20 and describe what that price was....
Obama was just emphasising the Political PLURALISM here in The United States of America.
If you still believe that The United States of America is a Christian Nation; you've got serious religious, political & even spiritual problems.
Even Bob Jones Sr., The Late GREAT Southern Fundamentalist-Methodist Judeo-Christian Evangelist/Revivalist, of late 19th & 20th Century America preached that The U.S. was NOT a Christian Nation--a Religious Nation, maybe--a Moral Nation, probably (more so back then)--a Pluralist Nation, DEFINITELY--But A Christian Nation, NEVER !
Boy o boy, Wouldn't The Satanic-Vatican just LOVE to have Americans BELIEVE that America is a "CHRISTIAN" Nation--that would be just one step CLOSER to America being a "ROMAN 'CATHOLIC'" Nation--OOOPS, Did I Let The Cat (Really Romanist Rat !) Out Of The Bag ?
O, Ye Satanic-Vaticanist "Jesuits", Roman "Catholic" Cultists and Closet Nazis/Fascists (False Conservative Republicans) who continually/habitually/perpetually post LIES on this sermonaudio website--feigning & guising yourselves as True Authorized Bible-Believing Fundamentalist Judeo-Christian Biblical-Literalists & Historic "Sola-Escritura" Holy-Bible-Only Protestants !
YE HAVE NOW, AND BY THE GRACE OF GOD, WILL ALWAYS BE FOUND OUT LIARS BY THE SAINTS !
I agree with Obama in this case, but probably for an entirely different reason. For someone who equates Black Liberation Theology with Christian theology, he has no idea of what defines a Christian much less a Christian nation. I doubt McCain does either. In this we are a "Nation In Trouble", with no one in government who knows the way out.
Only a ship of fools would put Obama at the helm !!!
THIS IS A CHRISTIAN NATION AND "We" NEED TO STAND UP AND ACT LIKE IT !!!
"We" have had "ENOUGH" of all these historical distortionists and ReLiGiOn that has *checked out*/*abandoned* their RESPONSIBILITY TO GOD AND COUNTRY !!!
Without GOD'S MORAL PRINCIPLES America is going to fall ... "We" MUST STAND FOR ""TRUTH"" ... to follow a fool like Obama, of which "We" have many (fools) in DC, is likened unto blindly following a man off a cliff without a parachute --- WHAT A GREAT BLUNDER !!!
Obama is Hell-bent and Hell-bound --- he is proof that money and status are no markers of TRUE WISDOM --- he is just anouther BIG MOUTH LIBERAL who wants to lower "Our" HIGHER MORAL STANDARDS to that of the demented licentiousness of a lesser few !!!
Shall "We" allow fools to exault the damnably Hellish above that which is TRULY GOOD AND RIGHT ??? ............ H E L L ??? ............ N O !!!
To cater to a few Hellhounds to the disadvantage of THE MAJORITY in America is nothing short of .... M A D N E S S !!!
WHAT OF DISCERNMENT ???
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TRUE DISCERNMENT ???
Have "We" really become such a blindly foolhardy people ???
