Obama says U.S. ‘Not a Christian Nation or a Jewish Nation or a Muslim Nation’


Remember when then-presidential candidate John McCain said the U.S. was a Christian nation? Well, yesterday his old sparring mate, President Obama, said just the opposite at a press conference in Turkey:

“One of the great strengths of the United States,” the President said, “is ... we have a very large Christian population—we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.”
