Ben Carson: Obama Says ‘We Are Not a Judeo-Christian Nation’ – But He Doesn’t Get to Decide, We Do


dr-ben-carsonNeurosurgeon and best-selling author Dr. Ben Carson said that although President Barack Obama has claimed America is “not a Judeo-Christian nation,” he is not the one to decide that point, we the people “get to decide that.”

“We as Americans have certain beliefs and cultures that led us to the pinnacle of the world,” said Dr. Carson while speaking at the 8th Annual Defending the American Dream Summit on Friday in Dallas, Texas.

“One of those things is that we are a people of faith,” he said. “I know the president has said that we are not a Judeo-Christian nation. But guess what? He doesn’t get to decide that, we get to decide that.”

Following that remark, attendees of the Americans For Prosperity-sponsored event gave Dr. Carson a standing ovation in the Dallas Omni hotel ballroom. Dr. Carson had prefaced his point by discussing how many brave Americans, from the Revolutionary War forward, had sacrificed their lives to ensure that America was a free country.

President Barack Obama has on several occasions stressed his belief that America is not a Judeo-Christian nation.

Back on April 6, 2009, during a press conference with the president of Turkey, President Obama said, “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. I think modern Turkey was founded with a similar set of principles.”

  1. Turkey was and is a nation of barbarians so Obama lied a little after all he is the top politician in the US. Dr Carson knows very well that state and religion do not mix well especially in a multi religious society that’s why it says on the us penny In G-d(u guess which one)we trust the common denominator is plurality.
    (Hail to the Chief(u guess which 1)!

  2. Carson is as effective on stage as a crying baby is expensive at the mall. G-d is not about running the show blind! He can be favorable if his hands are busy, but his little “campaign” is just his shoe strings getting crossed! Obama is a bum, but who really thinks this war is about religious awareness. Another right wing setting eye trying to make the future more violent. Terrible!

  3. ben carson is a superior neurosurgeon and I agree with much of what he says, but does that qualify him to be president? what experience does he have?

  4. There is no such thing as a Judeo-Christian anything. The religions have been distinct for at least 1900 years. And Obama is correct that the US is not a Christian nation — the First Amendment to the US Constitution explicitly prohibits that. The people “decided that” way back in 1791.
