On April 6, 2009, President Obama, speaking halfway across the world in Turkey, effectively made a shocking proclamation: that the United States did not consider itself a Judeo-Christian nation. In the days following these remarks by the President, Congressman Forbes took to the floor of the House of Representatives and delivered a speech in response
In just several weeks the YouTube video of that speech has been viewed a staggering two million times. In that speech Congressman Forbes asked: "Did America ever consider itself a Judeo-Christian nation?" and "If America was once a Judeo-Christian nation, when did it cease to be?" He made the case that while the President could say whatever he liked, he stood with our nation’s great leaders as well as millions of Americans, in saying America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and it is these principles that keep America strong. That video is now one of the most-viewed floor speeches in YouTube history.
