MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley is apologizing for his remarks about only Christians being his brothers and sisters.

Bentley said Wednesday he didn't mean to insult anyone with the comments he made at a church in Montgomery after his inaugural address on Monday. He says no one should hate anyone else because of color or religion.

Bentley spoke with reporters after meeting with several members of Alabama's Jewish community and other faith leaders at his Capitol office.

The Southern Baptist deacon says he will be a governor for everyone, not just Christians.
