Skip to comments.Half of Americans Do Not Know the President's Religion [The spin is IN.]
Posted on 07/28/2012 12:47:54 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows
Three and a half years into President Obama's first term as president, half of Americans cannot accurately say what religion he is, according to a poll released this week.
Only 49 percent of respondents said that Obama was Christian while 17 percent inaccurately said he was Muslim. Nearly one-third of respondents said they did not know the president's religion, according to the poll released Thursday by the Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion & Public Life.

Can anyone think of another single instance where the MSM spent so much time and money explicitly trying to correct an ‘erroneous’ popular impression?
Kinda reminds me of the flood of ‘it’s OK to lie’ stories when Clinton was Prez.
If the skidmark was a Christian, the state run media wouldn’t keep asking. Don’t bother him while he’s busy defending Nidal Hasan (Ft. Hood shooter).
“Half of the people do not know the President’s religion” ... for good reason. The other half believe whatever they are told.
He doesn’t talk or act like a Christian in any way shapr or form.
If brocko were being prosecuted for being a Christian, the case would be thrown out for lack of evidence.
If evidence of Christian faith were dynamite, brocko couldn’t blow his nose.
Amen Brother you got that right.
He adores himself.
Leans toward the Islamic faith, even said so, put it in writing ,and the media doesn’t believe it.
We know what Christians act like, and Obama does not in any way match that image. It’s no wonder less than half know the “truth” even after four years of media repetition.
49% do not have a clue.
Dear Media: the message you’re not seeing here is that the half of us who “don’t know the president’s religion” are simply not playing your little pin-the-religion-on-the-kenyan game.
When he’s not worshiping himself, zero’s religion is whatever is going to bump him up in the polls or get him the most votes.
He attended a church devoted to Black Liberation Theology for twenty years. BLT is compatible with both Islam and, more particularly, Marxism. That works for me. I just don’t know if it classifies as Christian.
His father was a muzzie, that makes our boy Barry a muzzie at birth. Islamic law. Now, one might say he is guilty of apostasy by stating he is a Christian, which would be a death sentence in some Islamic circles. No lookie goodie anyways ya look at it.
I’m not going to pretend to know what his faith is.
But I do know for a fact it isn’t Christianity.
You judge a Christian by the fruit they bear .
If a person isn’t bearing the fruits of the Holy Spirit it means that THEY ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN .
Christians do no support Sharia law , period .
Obama appoints Sharia finance specialist as White House fellow
You know how you can tell a real moderate muslim from one who claims to be a moderate muslim ?
You find out how they feel about Sharia law
THis guy isn’t even a moderate muslim since he is working hard to hire people who want to implement it in our country.
Obama is a MUSLIM as his father was
If Obama were are real Christian the news reporters would be doing to him exactly what they did to Sarah Palin .
He was born a moslem, acts like a moslem, loves moslems.
Gee whiz, it’s not like he referred to “My Muslim faith” in an interview.
Oh wait, he did.
Hey dipstick, prove to me the inaccuracy of the poll. Opansy is a muzzie. Born and bred. Prove me wrong! I double-down dare ya. Show me the proof or shut the heck up!!! 0pansy is and will always be a muzzie.
I wouldn't get very far trying to impersonate a Russian Ballerina and joining the Bolshoi troupe, yet the media tries to prop the kenyan up as a Christian and we're supposed to buy it.
I get the same nauseous feeling when many movies and TV shows try to portray Christians. They fail of course, and I find it sad that there isn't a single Christian in their production who can set them straight.
Meanwhile, I wish the kenyan knew that he was supposed to try to act like an American...
“half of Americans cannot accurately say what religion he is”
Hopefully the other half are smart enough to know he’s a muslim.
I’d love to know what percentage of muslims think he’s a muslim.
Now the anti--Christian--anti-Americanism-anti-Western sentiment that pervades the mooselimb culture strongly appeals to him.
They infiltrate, and are plotting to attack and destroy us, in ways he, for now, only dreams about. But just give him four more years!
That is why he's sympathetic to their cause and this confuses some people. He no more prays to a silly rock than Bill Ayers does.
The so-called “Black Theology”, which turns out, is a fusion of some elements of Christianity a LOT of confused Islam, and just for good measure, a little African Voodoo complete with shamans and the practice of magic. Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, and Father Michael Pfleger, renegade Catholic priest, both spoke from the pulpit of Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ. And if this is not Barack Hussein Obama’s framework of religious belief, then I cannot think of another, except perhaps no serious belief at all.
He answered a question from Stephanopoulis about his Muslim faith, and had to be ‘corrected’ by the host. I will wager a bottle of scotch that no one on this forum has ever made a similar slip of the tongue misidentifying their religion. I am Zoroastrian, er, I mean Cristian....
Nope, he's an egotheist.
17% according to the article.
How about solipsist?
Too many journalists don’t know the difference between “claims to be” and “is”.
Oh, percentage of Muslims! Never mind.
How come they do not have a poll like this:
What is the presidents religion.. can check multiple—
F.Communist- (considered by many to be a religion)
He doesn’t honor christian holidays in a manner that christians do, but he does make a point of honoring islamic
holidays. While in Indonesia, didn’t he go to a muslim school?
F.Communist- (considered by many to be a religion)
yes and this thing Obama is also a Muslim.
Well, O doesn’t seem to know either. He has talked about being Christian but has also talked about his ‘Muslim faith’.
49% don’t know what having a religion means
49 percent of Americans THINK they know he is christian
but have no proof. The rest know they don’t know what
the heck he is.
It is odd however that Islam seems so accepting of
an infidel, no fatwas, no vile language, no death
Hey!!! That's almost the exact same percentage that's on the gov's teet.
This is where Taqiyya kicks in for a muzzie. Did you notice that he picked his ham out of his split-pea soup at lunch with the vets?
That ain't pretending ROCK. That's hitting the nail on the head.
Obama At The 2008 Obama-Palooza
Well, I can't prove who his father is. You'll have to take him at his word....and you know what that's worth.
and the 17% inaccurately see him as a muslim.... what a media crock!!! The media should be purporting the truth. Right down to Jerimiah’s relationship to Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.
he aint no Christian.
Add in the Bell, the Farrakhans and his other racist MB pals
and stack it...
for the unknowing, uneducated ,blind, disbelieving, totally ignorant and ...
Obama is a Muslim wanabe or Wahabe.
As time goes on the evidence of this administration and Obamas sympathies are adding up.
If it looks like a duck quacks like a duck.
The term Al-Takeyya means:
Within Islam there are certain provisions under which lying and deceiving is not simply tolerated, but actually encouraged.
Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers; if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah, except by way of prevention that ye may guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you to remember Himself for the final goal is to Allah. - Quran - Surah 3:28
Obamas sympathies for Islam mounts
One of the prettiest sounds on earth is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.
Barack Hussein Obama as quoted by Nicholas D. Kristof in the New York Times - March 6, 2007
The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.
His biological father was a Muslim.
Because his biological father was a Muslim the Islam world thinks he is a Muslim.
His stepfather was a Muslim.
As a child Barry was enrolled in school as a Muslim in Jakarta Indonesia. An Indonesian Madrasa.
Barack Hussein Obamas first and middle names are Arabic Muslim names.
Barack was the name for Mohammads horse. Husein, enough said.
Obama recited the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer, which includes a vow of fidelity to Islam, in flawless Arabic on a radio program. - Nikolos Kristoff, NYTs, 3-06-07 (***this one is a gottcha moment***)
On that same program he said he thinks the call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on earth.
Obama belonged to Rev. Wrights (a former Muslim) church for twenty years. Many congregants are Muslims.
Obamas said that the U.S. is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.
Obama holds Muslim celebrations in the WH but canceled the National Day of Prayer.
President Obamas religious adviser, Eboo Patel, once deemed the United States the ideal place for the renewal of Islam.
Obama does not give gifts on Christmas.
Obama doesnt celebrate his birthday.
Obama falsely attributes Muslim participation in the founding of America.
Obama required that the cross be covered when he gave a speech at Notre Dame.
Christian symbol covered up during Obamas Georgetown speech
Obamas first major speech in office was a Muslim outreach speech in Cairo Egypt.
The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim, said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.
Obama gave strong support to the Cordoba House community center and mosque to be built at the Ground Zero site of Sep. 11, 2001 at a dinner celebrating the days end of the first day of Ramadan at the WH.
Obama tasked NASA with a mission of Muslim outreach.
Obama referred to his faith as my Muslim faith gaffe in an interview with George Stephanopolous.
Pushes Islamic freedom of religion but not Jewish or Christian freedoms. Several weeks ago he told Israel NOT to build settlements in East Jerusalem. But OK to build that Mosque at Ground Zero.
Every story about President Kardashian's religion uses some form of the word "accurate."
"News" that tells you what to think for the brain dead among us. To be truly "accurate" you would be forced to say that Obama was a Muslim. He took on a Muslim name abandoning his "slave name", and studied Koran in a Madressa growing up. That is called "A MUSLIM".
To remain accurate you could say you don't know if he still is a Muslim or just another infidel calling himself a Christian, as Obama drops such interesting one liners like we all pray to the same god. Sorry, Allah and Krishna and the God of Abraham are not the same guy.
Because of such statements, I feel perfectly accurate saying he is NOT a Christian. I don't know what he is, but I know what he is not.
“By their fruit ye shall know them.”
Obama is not sure what his religion is either, so why should the US citizens be certain about it???
In fact, the only people who seem to be sure are the liberal media types. Georgie Stephanopoulis had to correct Bambam about his (Obams’s) faith, when the POTUS stated clearly that his faith was Muslim. “You mean Christian, don’t you?”
Christians are known by their behavior. Obama is NOT A CHRISTIAN.
Because they don't give a flying donut what you think, believe, or would even prefer to be the answers in a poll.
Notice they never (I'll probably regret having said 'never') have a poll to ask what should be on a poll.
The purpose of a poll is to produce a pre-determined outcome.
