New York, NY - Jewish Organization Dismayed by Senator McCain's Claim U.S. is "Christian Nation"
New York, NY - The American Jewish Committee is deeply troubled by Senator John McCain's declaration, in an interview, that "the United States is a Christian nation."
"We urge Senator McCain to withdraw his troubling remarks," said Jeffrey Sinensky, AJC's general counsel. "Our individual rights cannot be secured if the government promotes one religion over others."
In the interview McCain expressed reservations about a Moslem candidate running for U.S. president. When voting for a candidate, McCain said, "I prefer someone who I know has a solid grounding in my faith" since "the Constitution established the United States as a Christian nation."
