Christian Nation?

At a press conference this week in Turkey, President Obama casually rebuffed the idea that the United States is a Judeo-Christian nation.

"One of the great strengths of the United States," the President said, "is ... we have a very large Christian population -- we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values."

hello, blog surfing, and came across your blog this morning. I read many christian blogs, primarily Blog and Mablog. I found your blog through Pastor Grant's.
I chose to reply, because you have the exact same template as my blog. If you want to see it, it is called "Staying Sane". I am an artist as well...God Bless
