McCain Slammed for Saying U.S. a "Christian Nation"

Republican presidential candidate John McCain is under fire from Jewish groups after saying the U.S. is a “Christian Nation.”

In a video interview with beliefnet.com the Arizona senator said America was founded “on Christian principles” and that it is in fact a “Christian nation.” McCain, however, did add that he meant that “in the broadest sense” and that all are welcome to America.

Abe Foxman of the ADL already sent a letter urging the senator to withdraw his comment. The AJC expressed dismay and the Jewish Democrats at the NJDC called on GOP leaders to denounce McCain.
