More Americans believe Obama is Muslim
AFP ^ | August 19 2010 | AFP

Posted on 08/19/2010 7:49:10 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

nearly one in five respondents on the survey said they believed he is a practitioner of Islam, while only 34 percent of Americans correctly identified him as a Christian, down sharply from a year earlier.

The poll was conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

Meanwhile, the percentage of people who say they are unsure what religion Obama practices has risen to 43 percent, from 34 percent a year ago.

The poll found one third of conservative Republicans believe Obama is a Muslim, a figure that has nearly doubled. But the president's faith was incorrectly identified by rising numbers of Democrats and independents too.

Some 18 percent of independent voters thought Obama was Muslim, up eight percentage points, and fewer than half the president's Democratic supporter believe him to be a Christian.

The Pew survey polled 3,003 respondents between July 21 and August 5, and had a plus-or-minus 2.5 percent sampling error.

Well, duh.
Perhaps the first family has picked a church?
No?
Why? Because marxist non-practicing muslims don’t need to pick a church.....

I heard Glenn Beck ridiculing this first thing on his show this morning. He says, “Really?!”

Um, yeah, Glenn. Really. Love you, man, but... REALLY. Have you been paying attention? You always tell us to listen carefully to their words and watch their actions. That is what we are doing....

He's demonstrated that he does not share my values as an American.

In fact, I view him as being anti-American and out to extract some type of revenge on Americans.

He must be removed from office before he injures us further.

I do not believe that Obama is a Muslim...he likes booze too much.

I do not believe that Obama is a Christian...he just uses them for a backdrop.

I do not believe that Obama is a Jew...he hates them.

I believe that Obama is a devout Marxist and as such, is an Athiest.

I do NOT believe it.

I think this guy is such a supreme egotist that he finds it impossible to accept that there is anything greater then himself. The only worshiping he does is in front of a mirror!

Of course I also believe he is so full of it that he could be put on the EPA Superfund list.

Well he goes out of his way to demonstrate accomodation of Islam, from his speech to the Muslim world to events like the Ramadan dinner.

Does he do a Christmas dinner at the White House?

Didn’t he cancel the National Day of Prayer? Which would have been predominantly Christian in nature? Yet he hosts a high profile Ramadan dinner.

He pronounces “Koran” with an accent which sounds like the Arabic pronunciation, rather than the Anglicized pronunciation.

Isn’t it a fact that the Obama family does not go to church or attend religious services in Washington? They have not yet found a church to attend? Yet he’s allegedly a devout Christian?

All of these types of things happening cause people to doubt that he is Christian and think he is Muslim. Especially since he was raised in Islam for big parts of his childhood.

Obama’s father was Muslim,
which means he was born a Muslim.
Muslims who convert to Christianity are subject to beheading,

and are not called “our son” by Muammar Qadaffi on the floor of the UN.

Nothing much more can be said about Glenn Beck except, he jumped the shark a while back. I don’t know what game he is playing at but it’s one where he’s going to keep hemorrhaging listeners until he becomes a true conservative again.

There’s a local talk show host here that was very close with Beck before Beck got his TV show. He went to visit him recently and Beck had handlers with him and could only “speak” with the local host for a few minutes before being ushered away.

Beck has moved on to that celebrity kingdom where upon he lives in his own little bubble, and only has YES MEN around him.

REALLY? Diddly-twaddle!!!!

obama is a muslim.

The idea that he is a Christian is sheer taqiyya. And his disguise gets thinner all the time, which is why more and more Americans are recognizing that obama is a muslim.

obama is carrying out a form of jihad, and selling us out to islam. WAKE UP, America!!!!

Despite Obama's attendance in church...

What church? He has not attended church since he was elected. Nice try.

nearly one in five respondents on the survey said they believed he is a practitioner of Islam

Since when is 24% "nearly 1 in 5". More like "nearly 1 in 4."

This man IS NOT a Christian. He favors the religious enemies of Christendom. He can call himself anything he likes as he marches to the tune of “Onward Muslim Solders, Allah’s will to enforce...”

He may not be the Anti-Christ, but he is definitely anti-Christ.

You don’t take on Israel from a Christian perch.

And no Christmas or birthday presents, just like muslims. I have not seen any evidence that he is a Christian - none. In fact, when asked if he believed his mother was in heaven, he said yes because she was a good person.

Obama was exposed to Islam as a kid and maybe practiced it when he was in Indonesia...but once he came stateside again, he didn’t bother with anything. Don’t forget, his mother and white grandfather were lefties. When he went to Chicago, in order to get street cred in the black community he needed to ally himself with a church. Now look at the church he allied himself with——one that parallels Marxist ideology. Now, Pres. OH? really isn’t much of anything in the religious department.

I don’t believe Obama is a Muslim, and spreading that belief only distracts from the real story, and the real problem.

Obama is to me a CULTURAL Muslim in that he was brought up to be familiar with Islam due to his father’s belief.

20 years in Rev. Wright’s clubhouse is a lot more evidence that he is simply someone with no deep religious faith who goes along with a kind of caricature of Christianity so he can talk to his target audience—his “community” where he walked around, said the right things, and was praised as “one of us” while being a clean, articulate black man to the Bidens of the world. His comment about “clinging to guns and religion” tells me he’s no Christian, but he’s also no believer of any sort—a Muslim wouldn’t dismiss religion that way. I see no evidence he was a practicing Muslim during this period, but I believe his actions while in the White House show the real truth—his sympathies are with Islam, not his belief (which is in Alinsky and the hardcore left).

While in the White House he has brought gays to a Christian event, but not to a Muslim one. We see in his Ramadan pronouncements that he has this deep cultural connection, but once again, I don’t see any evidence he is a follower in terms of religion.

He’s been in DC for over a year but still hasn’t found a church where he can worship? He must want another Rev. Wright—a POLITICAL “church”. THAT, I think, is why he attended Wright’s church for so long—because it was a cultural/radical political place. I see no evidence of any kind of spirituality in the man, just a community activist type who cynically plays religious cards when he can. Yet his cultural ties to Islam show where his sympathies lie—but I have never seen evidence that he is a follower of the Muslim faith. He’s like a fallen-away Catholic who doesn’t care for the church or the positions, but finds himself thinking about favorite Bible passages, caring for the poor, etc.

He ain’t a Muslim; he’s worse, he’s a phony who identifies with the Muslim people, while being free to say he’s not a Muslim. There is a difference, and a more insidious, manipulative soul is on display than someone who merely lies about which religion he follows.

Just heard Jonathan Capeheart on MSNBC discussing this, that Obama attends church at Camp David. I also found this article:

White House denies report that Obama chose Camp David church

http://www.usatoday.com/news/religion/2009-06-29-obama-church_N.htm

It amazes me how the msm will continue to lie for this man. And why are none of them questioning why he can’t welcome the troops home from Iraq? Seems that is the least a president can do.

I hate this man with every fiber of my being.

I think he is a marxist first (which calls for aethism) but has muzzie leanings based on how he was raised.

Michey doesn't fit the muzzie female bill though - bare arms and shorts.... that's grounds for a stoning in muzzieland. I just don't see her as one - aethist yes, muzzie no.

I think that he clearly prefers muzzies to the Judao-Christian way (which leads to personal freedom and thought - and a natural desire for less government), in terms of how it can work for him and his marxist agenda - oppression is oppression regardless of if it is socialist, islamist, fascist etc., they are all about control of people and the extreme opposite of freedom.

I saw this on the crawler on Fox last night. Then I saw the percentage of individuals who "correctly" identified his faith as Christian.

Correctly?

Zero avoids the National Day of Prayer, but hosts a dinner to recognize the beginning of Ramadan. Zero supports the building of the mosque at ground zero but won't support a Greek Orthodox church that has been trying to get approval to rebuild since the original building was damaged on 9/11? Zero attended a black liberation theology "church" for 20 years and, as far as I know, hasn't attended church in DC since his election to Congress. Zero supports abortion up to the moment of birth. Zero supports denying medical care to babies who survive an abortion. Zero lies every time his lips move.

The man may claim to be a Christian, but his fruit sure doesn't show it.

I believe the notion that Obama is a Christian originally came from his membership in Rev Wright's church. We now know that the the theology from that "church" is Marxism, and has nothing to do with individual salvation by Christ.

They used the Christian model but redefined salvation and Jesus Christ to mean something other than what is taught in the Bible. Like all the other progressive programs, in order to deceive, it's labeled as the opposite as what it really is.

Obama, a Christian? Not one reason to believe it.
