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."

They are surprised at this reaction by the public like they always keep getting “surprised” by changes in the economic news. When a person is totally clueless, they will always be surprised by EVERYTHING.
“They should do a WORLD pol. I bet the percentage people who think he’s a muslim is even larger than it is here.”
Salaam Alekhem - or whatever, Obama you lying phoney.
1/5 does surprise me though. I thought it would be higher than that. He was raised a muslim. He went to a muslim style “church”. He clearly identifies with them. So, are 4/5 people just plain stupid?
"Obviously a Christian"? Hmmm... Hear the words of Jesus, the Christ, regarding His children (from Matthew 7, KJV):
"15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16Ye shall know them by their fruits. ... 21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. "
“There’s a group of pastors that he takes counsel from on a regular basis.”
Bet “O” on the phone with Rev. Wright ALL the time for spiritual support!!
Well, it's not obvious to me and, apparently, not to a lot of other people.
Man does that nail it. I am now gonna puke.
OMA (Oh My Allah)! The infidel is on to me! What do I do now???
Obama’s jihad against America is no longer a secret.
This is a deliberate diversion from the unemployment numbers revealed this week.
Everyone has gotten the talking points including FNC.
Yeah, he’s a Christian, alright.
Just ask all the people who’ve aborted their babies since 1973.
That’s hilarious. And scary at the same time.
Anyone that prays everyday in Christian Faith would not advance abortion to the degree of this Administration.
Do you have a link to that?
"By their fruits shall you know them."
Hes claiming to be a Christian? After letting it slip about his Muslim faith? After choosing the mosque in NYC? After insulting Israel?
Sounds more like some taqiyya going on here.
