Finding neighbor-love in the Obama Doctrine

"Finding neighbor-love in the Obama Doctrine" Continued...

Lastly, Obama recognized that America is morally exceptional: "Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. The United States of America is different." How America has come to be different he did not say. But I will say it: America is a Christian nation, not only by majority affiliation but also by moral heritage. For this reason, we see the world differently, and the world is a better place because of it.
