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."

Nixon: “I am not a crook”.
I thought he might be a Christian until we were introduced to Reverend Wright.
And I realized he was prepared to fight, not for abortion, but for partial birth abortion, and furthermore fight to make sure no baby would ever survive an abortion. Now, thats weird.
And I realized that he is and has always been an out-of-the-closet communist. And all his friends are communists. And all of his family are communists.
And his closest “christian advisor” is a communist.
Once all that sinks in there is no possibility you mistake him for a Christian.
It’s especially bad today!!!!
And, the thing of it is, the people who support him by and large actively dislike Christians. If he were a Christian most of his supporters would run from him like scalded cats.
“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.”
The person who said that is “obviously (not) a Christian. ..”
“The president is obviously a Christian.”
Its not obvious to other Christians
“He prays every day,”
Yes he has told us how he loves the Moslem call to prayer...PRETTY was the word used to describe his feelings...
“He communicates with his religious adviser every single day.”
Whats the name of this guy ??? whats the depth of the “communication” ???
“There’s a group of pastors that he takes counsel from on a regular basis.”
Im sure there are...But he doesnt seem to listen to them when they ask about his lack of church attendance...
“And his faith is very important to him,”
To a Moslem, practicing the Islamic faith is physical life or death..
“but it’s not something that is a topic of conversation every single day.”
It is if you are a REAL Christian...
The NY Posts aka Murdoch aka News Corp aka Fox News aka Saudi shareholders is shilling for the Imam.
They have even been using the Liberal Media terms like “confused” and “mistaken” about people who believe Obama is a Muslim....straight off the Liberal Media playbook
They already have been calling Birthers an assortment of names....so no surprise they are shilling for Bamster on his Islamic background
That would be different than any Mosque, how?
Reverend Wright is, if not in fact a crypto-Muslim, at the very least an anti-American Muslim sympathizer. Which slots him and his $25K-contributing parishioner into the very same rat hole.
Reverend Wright stated in one of his interviews that Trinity was a good place for former gang members and apostate Muslims because they believe that the only sin that a Black person can be guilty of is to fail to rebel against the White capitalist oppressors.
I think they meant Jim Wallis
El Salvador has officially joined the Red regimes of Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Bolivia. South America is turning Red, dark Red, and little is being said to alert North Americans of the encroaching Red plague. Perhaps thats because North America is moving in the same direction. The president of the United States has surrounded himself with socialists, and some of those closest to him have had a part in turning South America Red...
A real Christian would never attend a church with a pastor like Jeremiah Wright.
A real Christian would NEVER support a bill that allowed newborns that survived abortions to die from exposure/starvation...
Barak Hussein Obama is ANTI-CHRISTIAN, and quite possibly muslim...
As one famous Liberal noted:
“I come from down in the valley, where mister when you’re young, they bring you up to do like your Daddy done...”
“his [alleged Christian] faith is very important to him, but it’s not something that is a topic of conversation every single day.”
As opposed to his DAILY public praise, promotion, protection, and proffering of Islam and its manifestations. Only thing missing is his public prayers - adhering to either religion.
Ask him who Abraham’s heir was. Few devious believers of any Abraham-derived religion would be clever enough to hedge the answer to conceal their true faith. A Christian would not hesitate to say “Isaac”; a Muslim would not hesitate to say “Ishmael” ... and that answer makes all the difference.
Don’t know - I’m sitting here scratching my head trying to noodle it out.
Wasn’t there some kerfluffle when he visited Georgerown University, IIRC, and insisted that a cross or a representation of Jesus or some Christian symbol be covered up? What Christian would take offense to a symbol of Christianity?
Google's computers have grown much smarter than its management. Not only do they know what Obama is, they also know exactly where to find an empty suit.
So, they are now, caught, 'protesting too much' and looking even more stupid and guilty for doing so.
As to the excuses:
"The president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day," . . .this seems an insult to Muslims; what do 'they' do. . .eat chopped cous-cous and call it prayer? And how do they know Obama is praying - does he pray 'on the job' or in privacy of his home quarters and he just reports that he has been praying. . .
They had better be careful; or there will be charges that Obama is violating separation of church/state per his religious activities when 'on the job' in White House. Which we can imagine, with his Muslim 'ties'; he most likely is. . .
As to Reggie Love; seem a huge story, right under MSM noses; and yet. . .like Prez.Bill; he is protected. Maybe Drudge will drop the big one, someday. . .before they drop him, that is - from 'net prominance'.
Wonder how many Muslims think that Obama is one of them?
If he is a Christian, why doesn’t he publicly acknowledge that Islam is a false religion? Jesus Christ said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no man comes to God but by Me.” If this is true and Mr. President believes it, why does he deny it by his actions and words? According to the Apostle John, Mr. President denies it because he is “a liar and the truth is not in him.” You cannot be a Christian and believe that there is any other way to get to God! That’s Bible!
He also had no representative of the Catholic Church at the Inauguration.
No Christian mocks the Bible, denounces Christians,
denies a God and Country, flyover as Obama has.
The masses have awakened to Obama’s lies and radicalism.
Yeah, the Church of Money.
What do you mean, I don’t believe in God ? I talk to him everyday~ Dave Mustaine
Muslims pray every day. Does that mean they're obviously Christians too?
The more they try to tell he isn’t a Muslim, the more I don’t believe them.
IIRC, he's gone to St. John's across the street from the WH on Easter once, but I could be wrong (sorry, I don't follow the man's every move). If he is a Christian then he's a CEO (Christmas and Easter Only).
Better save your screenshots of that. When Google finds out about it, it will be scrubbed like the suggestion list for “Islam is:”.
There’s really no need to speculate. Here’s what he believes in his own words:
What does he expect?
So, which is it?
I would guess that his god is on a golf course or a beach...
LOL! Me,too! And not only because of the Ground Zero mosque flap -- the poll itself and the reporting on it will likely set people thinking about it who just hadn't . . . and coming to a conclusion . . .
Rev. Wright: Obama 'threw me under the bus'
"No one in the Obama administration will respond to me, listen to me, talk to me or read anything that I write to them. I am 'toxic' in terms of the Obama administration,"
>>>Who does he pray to Baal? Allah? Satan?<<<
*Obama prays to Moloch.*
Not a bad guess!
I'd totally forgotten the 'cover the cross' incident. Thanks for the reminder.
What Christian would take offense to a symbol of Christianity?
Ummmm. A pseudo Christian?
In my lifetime, I cannot recall an administration that shot itself in the foot so often that the majority of their time was spent on 'damage control'.
I guess that's what happens when you have a Post Turtle pResident.
“”The president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day,” White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters.”
He probably prays five times a day with his forehead touching the floor. Which way is Mecca?
Since he’s become president, I pray every day too.
Curious minds would like to know who these folks are, maybe a reporter (ha!) would like to ask them a question or two about Obama’s religious views and practices. Just to confirm to everyone the president's strong and abiding Christian faith.
But no, no names, just assertions. I guess that makes me just sort of pause and scratch my head.

Black liberation theology maintains that African Americans must be liberated from multiple forms of bondage social, political, economic and religious. This formulation views Christian theology as a theology of liberation — “a rational study of the being of God in the world in light of the existential situation of an oppressed community, relating the forces of liberation to the essence of the gospel, which is Jesus Christ,” writes James Hal Cone.
Modern American origins of contemporary black liberation theology can be traced to July 31, 1966, when an ad hoc group of 51 black pastors, calling themselves the National Committee of Negro Churchmen (NCNC), bought a full page ad in the New York Times to publish their “Black Power Statement,” which proposed a more aggressive approach to combating racism using the Bible for inspiration.
Stanley Kurtz of the National Review claims that “A scarcely concealed, Marxist-inspired indictment of American capitalism pervades contemporary ‘black-liberation theology’...The black intellectual’s goal, says Cone, is to “aid in the destruction of America as he knows it.” According to him such destruction requires both black anger and white guilt. He claimed the black-power theologian’s goal is to tell the story of American oppression so powerfully and precisely that white men will “tremble, curse, and go mad, because they will be drenched with the filth of their evil.”
what ever religion he answers to, he still is a usurper, holding the office of president hostage. we are truly in rough times.
Gee. I wonder why anyone would think he might be a Muslim?
yep, that really hurts his chances to be the secret antichrist if everyone knows he is..doooh
His faith is important to him because most of this country is Christian..he still needs those clinging to guns and religion to pass stuff..or should I say shite..
