To hell with a "Judeo-Christian" foreign policy:

In the news:
Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told Christian Zionists that U.S. policies in the Middle East must be "firmly grounded" in Judeo-Christian principles.

"Reaching out to the Muslim world may help in creating an environment for peace in the Middle East, but we must insist as Americans that our policies be firmly grounded in the beliefs of the Judeo-Christian tradition upon which this country was founded," said Cantor (R-Va.), the House minority whip and the only Jewish Republican in Congress, in a speech to the Christians United For Israel annual conference in Washington.
Hey Eric, don't try and fool us with this talk of "Judeo-Christian principles". Get rid of the prefix. All this great country needs are "Christian principles".


You know that Cantor is Jewish, right?
