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."

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.
Translation: "Shut up, you infidel idiots, and get with the program. I won!"
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..
