Barack Obama on the role of religion in politics

"Given the increasing diversity of America’s population, the dangers of sectarianism have never been greater. Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers." May 13th, 2007 (Speech June 28th, 2006.) See also Lynn Sweet's blog)

He says a lot more in that speech and it's certianly a nice change from the Bush crusade.
