    There are many on the right that seem to think the current President is talking about Allah.

    As has been explained to you belief in a God or deity isnt exclusively christian. We dont say Christ bless America. Also since you ignored it. The ten commandments arent displayed in the lobby of the supreme court.

    Yeah...because only "Christians" believe in GOD.

    The word "God" now belongs only to Christians...just like you want the word "Marriage" to belong only to heterosexuals. How soon until you want the word "Marriage to belong only to white heterosexual "Christians"?

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 10% don't believe Christ rose from the dead, and another 11% are not sure.
    Um, okay. So what?

    Which is funny, since Allah is just Arabic for "God" - the same one Christians and Jews worship.

    If you think only Christians believe in God, might I suggest a little more Old Testament time and maybe a quick brush-up on Ephesians 2. Hint: Christians have been grafted on the vine and invited into the same promise that God has for the Jews.

    Re: We are a Christian Nation....

    Culturally the US is a Christian country, because most people are Christian in one way or another. However there is a difference between being a Christian nation and being a Christian state.

    While the American nation is clearly Christian the American state is patently secular. You had some very clever people writing your constitution who knew that the only way to keep together all the warring fractions of Christianity was to make sure that no religion could ever seize control of the state. Thus you have the separation clause and you should be happy about it.
    The poor complain; they always do
    But thatís just idle chatter
    Our system brings reward to all
    At least all those who matter.

    hehe, but the people are overwhelmingly Christian; the government is secular.
