... Few presidents have spoken about their religious faith as often, as deeply or as eloquently as Obama. "We worship an awesome God in the blue states," he declared at the 2004 Democratic convention, and he has sought since then to rebuild ties between the Democratic Party and the world of faith.
Yet no president has faced such sustained hostility over issues of faith, including Republican charges that he is waging a "war on religion," widespread suspicion about the sincerity of his Christian faith, and the persistent legend that he is a practicing Muslim.

His “Muslim” faith. Told me everything I need to know, especially when Stephanopoulos paddled like a duck to cover for him.
That would be the fella with horns and a tail.
Hey Mitchell Landsberg, it must be difficult to write while on your knees.
It’s also interesting that by saying the God of the Blue States, he is defining something/someone separate and apart from the God of the Red State folks.
In the BLUE states? He musta been talking about himself again...
Leaves me no doubt that by his own words, he is NOT qualified to be President.
Doncha know there's hundreds of FREEPERS who have either mildly objected
-- or in many dozens of cases -- denigrated & castigated --
--any poster who dare discusses the religion of a POTUS candidate?
They've repeatedly entered into Romney threads...the "they" being FREEPER laissez-faire types...or scolders...or the "bigot patrol":
#1 There's the "laissez-faire" FREEPER approach to Romney's Mormonism: "I don't care about Romney's religion...It doesn't bother me what Romney's religion is...it's his [X, Y, Z] in his track record, etc."
#2 There's also the FREEPER "scolders": "Thou shalt NOT focus on religion. I'm not electing a pastor-in-chief. Stick to politics. Stick to the economy. Let's keep religion hermetically sealed!"
#3 And then there's those who up the ante and just start accusing as the self-appointed "bigot patrol" -- and they toss out the "b" labels like a good liberal tactic...[Who cares about the content discussion]
IOW...we see from the...
...laissez-faire FREEPERs mentioned above all kinds of caveats and qualifiers;
...from the scolders plenty of chastisement over our refusal to "properly" "compartmentalize" worldviews;
...and from the "bigot" accusers all kinds of zealous intensified presentations of the "thou shalt not critique religious expressions" -- all as they critique our religious expressions! [Go figure that self-refutation out!]
Will they pop out on Easter day to scold away @ people who might dare comment on Obama's "faith?" (Now that posters on this thread have "violated" their "keep religion out" "principles"???)
Nope...they are either too busy on Easter...or too hypocritical to apply their so-called "convictions" across the board.
