Remember back, last year, on April 6 of 2009, when Pres Obama went to Turkey and said this:
"Although, as I mentioned, we have a very large Christian population, we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, or a Jewish nation, or a Muslim nation, but a nation of citizens."
He even went further a month prior to his speech in Turkey.
"Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation – at least, not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers."
Well, in a fairly unpublicized rebuttal of our current president, Representative Randy Forbes went to the floor of the House and sought out to kindly remind the president that yes, yes indeed, we are a Christian nation. That our nation was FOUNDED upon ideals that were established by GOD himself as laid out within our Judeo-Christian bible. Our Declaration and Constitution were written as near verbatim from the scriptures of that bible.
Here is Rep Randy Forbes' speech about a month after Obama's speech in Turkey:
The part that got me, and was something I didn't know, was this statement:
Congress therefore adopted "In God We Trust" as our national motto and it was engraved in the wall in front of which the speaker of the House of Representatives stands.
Our general population may have a dwindling base which identifies itself as Christian, but you, Mr President can not whitewash our history nor our identity.
The reason we have been successful, and the reason it seems you feel the need to apologize the world over for us, is because we were founded as a Christian nation that set down in writing the certain knowledge that each man has rights and freedoms that can not be taken away even by petty black-theology dictators.
We continue to be a Christian nation. And, over the next few years, you will once again, see the rise of that Christian voice. You will hear that cry coming out of that past-silent wilderness.
We have awakened.
