Anti-Obama mail piece: ‘We are no longer a Christian nation’

Can anyone tell me just when we were a Christian nation, and just what that means any way?

Anti-Obama mail piece: "We are no longer a Christian nation"

From the piece: 

The quote, though, is cherry-picked from a speech Obama delivered in 2006, more than two years before he became president, at the Call to Renewal conference in Washington.

In 2008, during Obama’s first national campaign, the same out-of-context remark was circulated online as sinister evidence that the Democrat intended to curtail religious freedom in America. At the time, the spurious Internet chatter was debunked by FactCheck.org.

Here’s the full quote:

“Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation - at least not just,” Obama said. “We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation and a Buddhist nation and a Hindu nation and a nation of non-believers.”
