"This country is not a theocracy," Dean said. "There are fundamental differences between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party believes that everybody in this room ought to be comfortable being an American Jew, not just an American; that there are no bars to heaven for anybody; that we are not a one-religion nation; and that no child or member of a football team ought to be able to cringe at the last line of a prayer before going onto the field."
I'm sure that he was wanting to say that the Democratic Party is open to people of all faiths, and that no certain religion is specifically excluded. But he fails to acknowledge that Christianity is indeed an exclusive religion: the only way to God the Father is through Jesus the Son.
