FW: Please pray for our Christian nation

From: Dr. John Tisdale

Dear Friends, 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. I hope that each of you will do what I'm doing now--send your concerns, written simply and sincerely, to the Christians on your email list.

With God's help, and He is still in control of this nation and all else, we can show this man and the world in November that we are, indeed, still a Christian nation!
Please pray for our nation

Oh no. Oh poo. You're going to have to share your imaginary 'Christian Nation' with everyone else now.

"Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law."
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Dr. Thomas Cooper, February 10, 1814

what senator obama said was, "we are no longer a christian nation - at least, not just". the omission highlights an intellectual dishonesty on the part of 'dr. john tisdale' and an obvious partisan attempt to turn christians against the senator. i suppose dr. tisdale can continue to believe that we don't have people of all religious beliefs living as citizens in this country, but facts are facts. and anyone who thinks we ought to become a christian nation to the exclusion of other religions is an un-american, intolerant zealot.

our forefathers did not fight and die for america to become a christian nation. they fought for freedom in all its forms - including the right to practice whatever religion we please. to argue otherwise demonstrates a sad misunderstanding of the basic principles of our democracy and a shocking ignorance of historical fact.

It's odd to me how many mainstream Republicans can talk about a "culture of life" in one moment, and support bombing, invasion, and occupation in the next.
