Obama to Turkey: America Is Not a Christian, Jewish or Muslim Nation

April 6, 2009 on CNN with James Carville and Frank Donatelli
From Raw Story:
President Obama told reporters in Turkey that America is not defined by any one religion. "I've said before that one of the great strengths of the United States is, although as I mentioned 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," said the president.
