Some people struggle with the phrase “American exceptionalism.”
Our 44th president, Barack Obama, seemed uncomfortable with the concept when he said, “I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”
In other words, everyone’s nation is special in their own eyes.
That’s true to a degree, but it’s also a fact that America’s founding was unique to history. Establishing our Constitutional republic amounted to a 5000 year leap in good government.
But there’s one more thing that makes us unique. What is it?
America’s exceptional faith.
