White House says Obama is Christian, prays daily
Washington Post ^ | August 19, 2010 | unknown

Posted on 08/19/2010 11:32:57 AM PDT by matt1234

WASHINGTON -- The White House says President Barack Obama is a Christian who prays daily.

White House spokesman Bill Burton made the remark Thursday, hours after a poll showed 18 percent of Americans think Obama is Muslim, up from 11 percent who thought so last year. A third think he's Christian, and 4 in 10 say they don't know Obama's religion.

--SNIP--

Burton said: "The president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day."

White House spokesman says, “Obama is a Christian. He prays daily. In fact, he is so Christian, he prays five times a day.”

The only prayer that the God of the Bible will hear from Obama is a call for salvation through Jesus Christ.

"The president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day."

Um. If you need to send out a press release two years in, to tell the country you're a Christian... It is not "obvious"!

Then why did Obama have Code Pink “cleanse” the White House with witchcraft?

Attends church?

Where’s he a member?

What city(ies)?

Easter message?

Christmas message?

National Day of Prayer?

Christian mentors/advisers?

Does Michelle and kids also “pray daily”?

Do they attend/join church?

What version of The Bible do they Obamas use?

When did he convert to Christianity?

Just a few questions . . I’m sure there’s many more.

Fine, if he’s a Christian, he can state his confession and testimony.

And, no, there is no such thing as a “many ways to God” Christian - Christ Himself did not allow that option.

Prays to Allah, and for the destruction of the infidels. I have no doubt about that. He outed himself to staphylococcus in the sept 08 interview, its a done deal.

Sorry bambi, we have been on to you for years now, the jig is up, get out of our house!

You can't put the toothpaste back in the tube...the WH obviosuloy has to repond to the poll, but the effect is to keep the story alive, give it legs, and more people will tune in on it...I suspect that a great many have thought it true, but as yet were unwilling to say so..now, seeing that they are not alone in these views...more will come to the same conclusion...Americans are fairly simplistic in their assessment of who's Christian....if you don't go to church on Sundays, you probably aren't..

Also, I think many as yet aren't willing to admit these thought to pollsters..lest they be thought of as prejudiced..

Is Mr. Burton saying that Obama converted from Islam to Christianity? I understand that Islam does not look kindly on such a betrayal, what with Imam Obama’s daddy being a mooselimb and all.

NO matter what happens now, the Obama administration is screwed.

Maybe Obama and Holder and Kagan and Neal Katyal, who became the acting U.S. solicitor general when Elena Kagan was nominated to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, and previously served as the legal counsel of record for the man who worked as Osama bin Laden’s driver from February 1996 through November 2001, maybe these people are just huge fans of John Adams, and really truly do not care if Obama is a one term president like John Adams.

Obama needs to push through some sort of Sedition Act more flagrantly unconstitutional than ObamaCare though, to really seal the comparison.

There they go again thinking We The People are morons. I’m sure he prays every day or perhaps every hour for more power and more destruction to our economy, prays for more ways to destroy our Constitution and prays to find ways to diminish our security and our military. In what religion is he praying with Pelosi and Reid standing right next to him holding hands.

This is hilarious. How many times must Obama repeat “I am NOT a Muslim”, before we believe him.

This is almost as laughable as that latest passport the White House introduced the other day. You know - the one that “proves” he was born in Hawaii.

he does not even celebrate Christmas for crying out loud, the media tries to tell us he is a Christian and then cannot name a church or has seen him pray or go to church.

My muslim faith, wind blows I will stand with muslims, call to prayer the most beautiful sound in the world. No Ester, no nothing to do with Christianity.
