President Barack Obama stated at a press conference in Turkey last week that we Americans “do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, or a Muslim nation, but rather, a nation of citizens who are, uh, bound by a set of values.”

What ever happened to separation of church and state...

First off, religion should be kept out of politics.....REPUBLICANS and DEMOCRATS. Secondly, it amazes me that a nation that was built around the notion of separation of church and state seems to be welcoming a theocratic form of government with open arms.
If you want to live in a theocaracy, go live in Saudi Arabia. Write us and let us know how you enjoy it.
Another thing that amazes me is that we have people like Bush, Perry and now, at least seemingly, Obama who think they KNOW what God desires,in high places in our society. It's all rather surreal to me.edit on 2-11-2011 by SpeakerofTruth because: (no reason given)

"That's not putting people back to work," Obama said during a jobs speech at a bridge in Washington, D.C. "I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work."
Delivering yet another speech in front of a bridge in need of repair, Obama said House Republicans should work to put people back to work, instead of focusing on other measures that don’t create jobs, such as debating a commemorative baseball coin or legislation reaffirming the “In God We Trust” motto.
“That’s not putting people back to work,” Obama said as he stood before the Key Bridge that connects Washington, D.C., to Northern Virginia. “I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work.”
