During a June 2007 speech available on Youtube, Obama stated, "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."
In that speech, Obama took aim at 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.
As a Christian, I have a right to be concerned about these remarks from this man. "To exploit what divides us?" "The dangers of sectarianism?" What are the dangers we are to worry about? Persecution, for freely believing in the living and true God of Heaven who even put him in his position? Romans 13 verse 1 says:13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers(governmental). For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
Because America voted, the outcome was for Money over Morality! My opinion, of course.
