We Are Not A Christian Nation

During his overseas "Trash America" tour, the blame-America-first doofus we have in the White House, had this to say in Turkey,

"We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. uh uh We consider ourselves uh uh a nation of us citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values."

What's this "we" stuff, buddy?

Maybe it's understandable Obama feels that way since he spent twenty years' worth of Sundays at an anti-white, pseudo-Christian hate group instead of going to a real Christian church, but the majority of Americans, myself included, do consider this to be a Christian nation.

This country was founded by Christians seeking religious freedom and Christian principles shaped our founding documents and our culture.

This nation would not be a great nation without Christianity and it will not remain a great or moral country without the majority of its citizens remaining Christian.

That's not to say that there aren't great or moral people of other religions or even great or moral people who have no religion at all, but what's true of individuals, isn't true of nations. We've seen that played out in Western Europe, which is in a rapidly increasing state of decay and we're seeing it here in the U.S. as the number of Christians decreases.

This country was founded by Christians on Christian principles with the intent to allow people to pursue Christian ideals.  In spite of the denials by leftists and atheists who want to proclaim the founders all unreligious deists, the writings of the founding fathers indicate otherwise.  If you study the writings of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Washington, et al, you'll find that they not only believed in Biblical teachings, they believed that the United States as a nation would only succeed as it followed the teachings of the Bible. 

You may not like the fact that this nation was founded on Christian principles by Christian men, but the very liberty that is guaranteed you by the 1st Amendment is part and parcel of the Christian faith. 

We all know that none of the founding documents specifically call out Christianity (or any sect of Christianity) as an official State Religion, so let's not spend any time arguing that point.  In the same breath, we all know that Christianity was the religion practiced by not only the founders of the nation, but by a majority of the people for the entirety of the period of her existence. 

Does that make America a Christian Nation?  In official terms: no.  As a matter of practicality, yes. While we are not "formally" a Christian nation, the very values and ideals that Obama referred to in the SAME BREATH in which he declared us a "secular nation", are Christian values, ideals and mores. 

We ARE, indeed, a Christian nation, Obama. It would serve you well to learn a little more about the country you lead.

Actually, we aren't and never were a Christian nation. We were formed on masonic principles.

Here are many of our founding fathers:

John Adams - Spoke favorably of Freemasonry -- never joined
Samuel Adams - (Close and principle associate of Hancock, Revere & other Masons
Ethan Allen - Mason
Edmund Burke - Mason
John Claypoole - Mason
William Daws - Mason
Benjamin Franklin - Mason
Nathan Hale - No evidence of Masonic connections
John Hancock - Mason
Benjamin Harrison - No evidence of Masonic connections
Patrick Henry - No evidence of Masonic connections
Thomas Jefferson - Deist with some evidence of Masonic connections
John Paul Jones - Mason
Francis Scott Key - No evidence of Masonic connections
Robert Livingston - Mason
James Madison - Some evidence of Masonic membership
Thomas Paine - Humanist
Paul Revere - Mason
Colonel Benjamin Tupper - Mason
George Washington - Mason
Daniel Webster - Some evidence of Masonic connections

We weren't meant to be a Christian nation. We were formed to be a free nation. Thats why we have separation of church and state, which is a freemason ideal. Any historian would tell you this.

This bozo of a president capitulated,pandered,and appeased the liberals and muslims of atheist of Europe his entire time there.

We are not socialist, but capitalist. Our government might be secular,but the people are very much Judo-Christian.

Newsweek,and the liberal media have an agenda,as we all already know.

Obama's quote was not whether or not we have a structure set up as an official "Christian" nation, but rather that we do not "CONSIDER OURSELVES" to be a Christian nation.

This is patently false. The majority of Americans DO consider us to be a Christian nation. About 80%, anyway.

Doesn't matter if they consider it or not. We aren't a Christian nation. We never were. Yes, we have God on our dollar bills. But we also have freemason symbols (pyramid with an eye)...

There are plenty of valid critisms of Obama. This isn't one of them. He is trying to let the Muslim world know that we aren't at war with them. We are at war with Al Queda, the Taliban, and other terrorists. Not all terrorists are muslims (basques, Timothy McVeigh, Sudan, Darfur)...

Instead of being indignant that Obama trying to heal rifts with others in the world and help us get allies that will actually back us up (unlike most of the UN) focus on things like the bailouts, where we are handing those that screwed over our economy more and more money. That's a legitimate criticism.

Heal the rifts between the U.S. and what ever countries you like, but when it is done in a way that belittles the country you are the leader of and denies the importance of the major religion (Christianity with Catholicism closely behind) in this country, it is a sad direction for America.
