Skip to comments.White House aghast over 'secret Muslim' poll
Posted on 08/20/2010 8:51:40 AM PDT by SkyPilot
The White House was forced yesterday to reaffirm President Obama's Christian faith after shocking polls found that 1 out of every 4 or 5 Americans falsely believe he's a Muslim -- a considerable increase from last year.
"The president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day," White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters.
"He communicates with his religious adviser every single day. There's a group of pastors that he takes counsel from on a regular basis. And his faith is very important to him, but it's not something that is a topic of conversation every single day."
A separate White House statement stressed that Obama's "strong Christian faith is what guides him" in facing the nation's challenges. "But he doesn't wear it on his sleeve," the press office added.
The president's flacks also complained that Obama's faith is "often maligned and distorted by critics."

ditto! The fact that they are responding and doing damage control just makes me believe even more that he’s a closet Muslim.
KMA. It's the same as 0 and his "let me be clear" insult. Instead of leaving the word "falsely" out, they decide to go obama on folks.
He prays daily (and i think they meant ‘preys’ as in on the American public) and yet can’t seem to bring himself to recognize the Chrisianity in Christmas?
Fascinating, I think the interview linked in 2004 establishes that his theology is Islamic and not Christian......
It is a fundamental principle in Islam that one who is not guided cannot guide. Thus Jesus is a fully realized man and an apostle of God. Jesus thus becomes, in Islam, a symbol (or sign) of the immense potential that exists within man’s fundamental nature. The Prophet’s of God are sent to guide man and to show man how to actualize this potential within him.
OBAMA: Right. Jesus is a historical figure for me, and hes also a bridge between God and man, in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher. And hes also a wonderful teacher. I think its important for all of us, of whatever faith, to have teachers in the flesh and also teachers in history.
Oooooh -— the dog thing is the dead give away. (i’m serious).
... and his religious adviser is whom? Mmm, could it be...
I almost forgot about that - where was “crhistian obama” when Graham was forced to pray OUTSIDE the pentagon??? Here is a mosque INSIDE the pentagon - Graham was NOT allowed to pray inside the pentagon. What about that? Don’t you think obama would have jumped on that outrage and order the pentagon to allow Graham to pray inside?
Well, where are the Christians in NY, on Fridays? Why aren’t they there doing the same thing, right next to them? It’s time to move outside your comfort zone and fight back damn it.
I agree. Christians are so...polite...we let that happened. Awful cowardise. When an official tells us to stop praying in the schools or anywhere - WE STOP!!! How more stupid can we be, indeed.
And to say to George Stephanopoulos during an interview “my Muslim faith” just isn’t the kind of “Freudian slip” a Christian would make.
That look sort of works for Michelle. In fact, in cases like hers we may want to make it mandatory.
“President Obama and the First Family were planning a non-religious Christmas, according to Social Secretary Desiree Rogers. Ms. Rogers reportedly told a gathering of former social secretaries that the Obamas did not intend on putting the Nativity scene on display a longtime East Room tradition.”
Now way this man is a Christian.
“I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!”
.....and now you know what he believes being a Christian means.
To his Blackberry....
I'll bet the rug even has the Presidential Seal on it.
