Barack Obama’s naive statements on the Ground Zero mosque have brought new energy to the debate over his religious affiliations.
Yahoonews.com reports, in part, that nearly one in five Americans believe that Obama is Muslim: Ref 1
“Nearly one in five Americans incorrectly believe President Obama is Muslim, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. That total, 18 percent, is up from 11 percent in Pew’s March 2009 survey.
“While the view that Obama is Muslim is more widespread among those who identify as Obama’s ideological opponents, the survey found that a growing number of independents also believe the myth, up 8 percent from 2009.”
Note that the word “incorrectly” as used in the Yahoo.news story is not necessarily true.
Consider Obama’s actions since 1/20/09:
In defending the president, White House spokesman Bill Burton made the following comments aboard Air Force One:
“The president is obviously - he’s Christian. He prays every day…” But, Burton added, the president’s top priority is not “making sure Americans know what a devout Christian he is.”
Excuse me? Prayer does not make one a Christian.
For instance Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad surely prays many times a day. As did Mohamed Atta and the other 18 devils who brought the Twin Towers down.
The issue is to whom does he pray and does he believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ, the resurrection?
Or is Barack Obama a Christian In Name Only?
