"Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers,"—Sen. Barack Obama
Here’s a phrase that Senator Barack Obama is obviously unfamiliar with, “E Pluribus Unum.” Someone really should explain the term to presumptive Democrat nominee for president and Illinois Senator Barack Obama.
It means, “Out of the many one.” What it doesn’t mean is a balkanized nation of multiculturalism and multi-theism maybe someone should explain that to Sen. Obama.
Oh that’s right, silly me American’s want change, so I guess such an out dated concept as coming out of many backgrounds and cultures to become one America is no longer the goal for this country, no that was an invention of dead old white men an invention that is no longer relevant for a progressive America right?
According to Sen. Obama America is no longer operating under the tenet of E Pluribus Unum, America has changed, America wants change. So much so that if that change required America from ceasing from being America well that’s all good too!
According to Sen. Obama America has became a religious and cultural balkanized nation in the similitude of the nations of the east Nations that people have and are fleeing from by the hundreds of thousands to come to a nation that they were told believes in E Pluribus Unum and freedom. (see story)
Where else in the world (except a dieing Europe) could a presidential hopeful boast that the traditions that have made their nation what it is are no longer needed?
Think about it. Most nations’ traditions are so oppressive that people flee from those places to come here to America. Yet we don’t see anyone in the world so willing as Sen. Obama to give up on the traditions that they are fleeing from, even if those traditions have bankrupted their nation.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would never stand up to declare that Iran is no longer a Muslim nation. No Saudi Arabian royal would claim that Saudi Arabia is not longer a Muslim nation; No Egyptian president would ever say that Egypt is no longer a Muslim nation; Hu Jintao the Chinese president would never assert that China is no longer a Communistic Atheistic nation. Ironically these nations are looking for change too, only the change they seek is to impose their tyrannical wills on other nations, like America for instance.
Yet in America, the shining beacon on the hill, a once great nation because people like the old dead white men, I previous referred to, believed in traditions that made this nation uniquely a great nation. Yet we have fallen so low as to have a man running for president who obviously doesn’t understand what tyrannical and oppressor nations know?
What they know is that for any nation, free or dictatorial, to keep operating they must keep and stay true their original traditions their systems of government must be upheld not undermined if they are going to continue to exist.
Someone should tell Sen. Obama that America has always been a nation that has accommodated others of different faiths and backgrounds, because we are a Christian nation not in spite of that fact. America has not always been perfect in this but nothing’s perfect.
We can and must always be traditionally America the home of the free and the land of the brave. That distinction must be maintained no matter who comes here, no matter their beliefs or their faith because the American tradition was made possible because we are who we are, a Christian nation.
Sen. Obama you show me another nation, Muslim, Hindu, or an atheist nation, that is like America; free, welcoming of other faiths and beliefs and I will gladly agree with you that America needs to change from being a Christian nation to just being one of the many multicultural and multi-theistic nations of the world!
You have only to look to Europe and see that when a country forgets its own traditions and allows other traditions and religions to set up as equal residents the other religions are generally not as tolerate as the faith and traditions that welcomed them.
Contrary to your belief Sen. Obama, America is not a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation or a nation of nonbelievers.
Yes people who practice those beliefs came to America and are apart of the American dream of freedom and they are free to practice their beliefs however they see fit.
That notwithstanding, one only has to read the documents that began this nation, the Mayfair compact for instance, Sen. Obama you should read it and others like it and you will discover that the ideas that made this nation what it is today come from a unique root and if that root is ever severed that would be the death of the freedoms that we all enjoy today.
Is that the change that you offer Sen. Obama? Do you offer the change that is the death knell that has multicultural Europe in its last throes?
To wit a look to Europe is evidence enough that multiculturalism and multi-theism does not work and if we are as Sen. Obama says no longer a Christian nation then the root has indeed been severed and we are no longer America!
