U.S. Is Not A Christian Nation

Editor:

President Obama has told the world that the U.S. is not a Christian nation and for a short period I strongly disagreed with this statement. I know that this nation was founded upon Christian values and principles, but in a short period of time, we have rejected these principles for selfish desires.

Our Founding Fathers were men of faith and religious conviction and many lost everything to form this nation.

Today, spiritual and religious leaders are substituting conviction and passion for political correctness and social acceptance. I know that many of these leaders have memorized the Bible, but yet, few know the meaning of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven. Somehow, we have allowed weak men to lead the church who no longer possess three necessary qualities for the U.S. to remain a Christian nation; honesty, faithfulness and mercy.

In general, I will not agree with our president, but he has correctly identified that we are no longer a Christian nation in which luke-warm actors in the pulpit are completely responsible for this apostasy, not our president.
