Including unbelievers was good though.

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama and Islam: An Ongoing Saga

Submitted by MelM (United States), Jan 26, 2009 at 01:05

The U.S. founders pretty much kicked the government out of economics and kicked religion out of the government.. This is the meaning of America and her greatest achievement. Unfortunately, both are in danger of being destroyed. When that happens, the America the founders built will be dead.

I fully expect Obama to hasten the destruction of capitalism and do little to halt the onslaught of "God's Kingdom". I was, however, glad to see him include we unbelievers in America. I suppose I should thank him for that but I'm so angry over his decision to end torture that I can't bring myself to do anything but send (already done) a comment to the White House about that decision to reduce my chances of living.

He says torture is against our "values". Well, if morality is treated as some end-in-itself, I suppose he's right. However, in the face of the jihadis, I (and I think most Americans) have a big big "value": STAYING ALIVE--a secular value.
