During his presidential campaign, then Senator Barack Obama told a Christian Broadcasting Network correspondent something that should have alerted—if not frightened every one of the tens of millions of Christians in the United States.

Obama told CBN’s David Brody: ““I think that the right might worry a bit more about the dangers of sectarianism. Whatever we once were, we’re no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

If that tidbit of information wasn’t enough to question Obama’s vision for America, he previously said in a 2007 speech that “whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation.”

He went on to state, “We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

Then he uttered his zinger: “Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and started being used to drive us apart. It got hijacked. Part of it’s because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, who’ve been all too eager to exploit what divides us.”
