Speaking in Turkey today, President Obama stated, that America was not a Christian, Jewish or Muslim Nation. It should go without saying that this has not made everyone happy…
You would think Frank Donatelli, former Deputy Chairman of the RNC, would be educated enough to know that President Obama was doing nothing more than using the words of John Adams when he was also communicating with a Muslim nation.
“As the government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen [Muslims] … it is declared … that no pretext arising from religious opinion shall ever product an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries….
“The United States is not a Christian nation any more than it is a Jewish or a Mohammedan nation.”
– Treaty of Tripoli (1797)
Perhaps the good Christians of America should question Donatelli, as to why he feels John Adams was not fit to be President.
