Hussein claims to be a “Christian” of sorts:

FALSANI: What do you believe?

OBAMA: I am a Christian.

So, I have a deep faith. So I draw from the Christian faith.

On the other hand, I was born in Hawaii where obviously there are a lot of Eastern influences.

I lived in Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world, between the ages of six and 10.

My father was from Kenya, and although he was probably most accurately labeled an agnostic, his father was Muslim.

And I’d say, probably, intellectually I’ve drawn as much from Judaism as any other faith.

So, I’m rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people. That there are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and there’s an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived.

And so, part of my project in life was probably to spend the first 40 years of my life figuring out what I did believe - I’m 42 now - and it’s not that I had it all completely worked out, but I’m spending a lot of time now trying to apply what I believe and trying to live up to those values.

AND he is not only embarrassed to speak of Christ, he admits he is the type of “Christian” who thinks that Jesus was only a “great teacher”:

FALSANI: Who’s Jesus to you?

(He laughs nervously)

OBAMA: Right.

Jesus is an historical figure for me, and he’s also a bridge between God and man, in the Christian faith, and one that I think is powerful precisely because he serves as that means of us reaching something higher.

And he’s also a wonderful teacher. I think it’s important for all of us, of whatever faith, to have teachers in the flesh and also teachers in history.

AND he ducks the question whether he has ever been a member of another faith (e.g. Islam):

FALSANI: Have you always been a Christian?

OBAMA: I was raised more by my mother and my mother was Christian.

Obama’s “Christian Faith” In His Own Words

Exactly what muzzies believer - they ever revere Jesus -"Issa" as a great prophet and teacher. And that's all.

Yep that’s Christianity by genetics instead of by faith in Christ. Doesn’t work that way. Simple question was asked indirectly and he nevertheless failed. Of course a more direct question would have been preferable: Did Jesus Christ rise from the dead the third day? Is he Lord?
