In his own words ( I searched every permutation of the title and didn't find this has been posted. If it has blame the fr search engine not me)

Being out of alignment with my values.
Do you believe in heaven?
Do I believe in the harps and clouds and wings?
A place spiritually you go to after you die?
What I believe in is that if I live my life as well as I can, that I will be rewarded.
Despite your lead in, it turns out to be a revealing interview.
Sorry, hope everyone reads this.
I would say Obama is a man who hasn’t thought very deeply about religion. And either he never learned the basics of the Christian Gospel, or if he has he has rejected it.
Read what he said about Jesus he mentions Jesus in the Christian faith, which implies he is elsewhere too. One of the ONLY instances I can think of in which Jesus exists in another religion is Islam. It is very bizarre phrasing he uses.
Part of the "I'm spiritual, not religious" crowd, who want to feel good about themselves without having to actually improve themselves or believe in anything.
Do you still attend Trinity?
Yep. Every week. 11 oclock service.
Who's Jesus to you?
(He laughs nervously)
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.
Where do you find spiritual inspiration? Music, nature, literature, people, a conduit you plug into?
There are so many.
Nothing is more powerful than the black church experience. A good choir and a good sermon in the black church, it's pretty hard not to be move and be transported.
If he believes what he said (and I have no reason to doubt he does) then he is much closer to a Muslim than he is to a Christian.
so he basically had nothin prior to Rev. Wright and Trinity.
There is no doubt in my mind that he joined Trinity because if he hadn’t, there would have been no marriage to Michelle.
Here’s my prophesy (God didn’t whisper this into my ear but I see it clear as day):
Obama is going to become the great unifier. Saying that Christians and Muslims should come together because essentially they Islam and Christianity are the same religion.
Which is true if you gut everything from Christianity that makes it unique. Which he does.
” he joined Trinity because if he hadnt, there would have been no marriage to Michelle.”
From what I recall he joined Trinity to establish his black connection to the community, and it was a place of influence in Chicago politics.
Once again, what’s in it for him.
Agree with the prior posters. He’s closer to Muslim than Christian, and as is the case in so many things, always wants it both ways.
In other words “ what religion am I” I vote “present”
the least...to say the most...
,,,and GOD only knows how many millions more...
How can you say this?
Muslims believe that Christ was a prophet and Allah is the prophet of Islam.
Christians believe that Christ is the God of Christianity.
How will Obama morph Christianity and Islam together with any semblance of rationality?
American Christians will not stand for this mockery.
A Muslim who was raised a Christian told me this very thing. I’m afraid the bulk of Americans will fall for this.
The first step is you discredit the Trinity and marginalize believers in it.
eg. It was a late invention by the Romans. It’s illogical, doesn’t make sense. Only radicals really believe it. I don’t see it in MY bible. etc.
Pay attention and see if you don’t see this happening.
