Is United States of America a Christian Nation!!

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

This whole argument is amusing, is United States of America a Fundamental Christian Nation, where one has to be a Christian of some denomination to lead a political life. Before this entire argument of Obama religion came to fore, it was asummed universally that US was a Democratic Secular-Liberal country which had immigrant population forging a unique modern nation. But this entire debate on Obama has exposed US as a fundamentalist Christian country where adherence to Christian religion and wearing the badge of Christianity is essential if any person has to enter public life. And even if a person does that by disowning and denouncing the religion of his birth and becomes Christian out of the greed for public office , the Christian fundmentalists in the country will not accept him because he is not born a Christian.
