So Senator John McCain has gone and stated the obvious: The U.S. is a Christian nation. Well, I'll be. There's a shock. Pick my jaw up off the floor.
What I'd like to know is why his critics don't object just as vigorously when Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran et al announce that they are Muslim nations? Anyone think a white guy running for president in South Africa has a chance of winning?
The U.S. has become and remained the strongest nation in the world based on his perceived Christian values. If one compares the parts of America where those values are still practised with those where they have been abandoned, one finds huge difference in the level of quality of life, literacy and crime.
God bless America and keep their dollar lower than ours!
