Re: As I was listening to a news program last night, I watched in horror as Barack Obama made the statement with pride. . .'we are no longer a Christian nation; we are now a nation of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, . . . As with so many other statements I've heard him (and his wife) make, I never thought I'd see the day that I'd hear something like that from a presidential candidate in this nation. To think our forefathers fought and died for the right for our nation to be a Christian nation--and to have this man say with pride that we are no longer that. How far this nation has come from what our founding fathers intended it to be.
Funny, I always though religious freedom was one of the founding principles of this country. Our forefathers fought and died to protect that freedom, not to keep a certain religious denomination in power.
If you oppose Barack Obama in the election, that's fine. When John Scurich stated his opposition, he seemed to have put some original thought into it and I can respect that. But to forward email spam that's already been posted on hundreds of blogs, and use that as a reason for opposing a candidate, is just plain lazy. People who vote for a candidate solely based on the scare tactics used by the opposing side is a major reason why we keep electing leaders who are running the country into the ground.
By the way, Michelle Obama's thesis is available here:
