Amid Crises, President Obama Prays 'a Lot'
ABC News ^ | March 30, 2011 | Devin Dwyer

President Obama says he's been doing "a lot of praying" in recent weeks while faced with tough choices on Libya and other crises at home and abroad.

"I am praying that I'm making the best possible decisions, and that I've got the strength to serve the American people well," he said in an interview Tuesday with ABC News' Diane Sawyer.

....Despite Obama's public professions on religion and spirituality, many Americans continue to doubt the president's faith.

Nearly one in five Americans incorrectly believes that Obama is a Muslim, according to a poll by the nonpartisan Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life released late last year.

The poll found the number surveyed who knew correctly that Obama is Christian actually declined, from 48 percent in March 2009 to 34 percent in August 2010. Forty-three percent of Americans now say they don't know what Obama's religion is at all.

Obama saying that he “prays a lot” is like watching Bill Clinton walking out of church carrying that big study bible he used to carry - nice prop.

How about this... I will drop my belief that Obama is a muslim when I watch him on al jazerra , eating a pulled pork sandwich, while drawing cartoons of Mohamed wearing a yamaka.

The ONLY person I can imagine this marxist/muzzie/narcissist/nihilist/race-baiting SOB praying to his HIMSELF.

Like Caligula, this Maximum Kenyan Buffoon literally sees himself as a god.

He's praying he makes it to the end of his term without going to prison and that he leaves the place a disfunctional third world cesspool, which will make him a hero in the middle east and parts of asia.

He's the madhi in the films produced by Iran.

Doesn’t prayer require some degree of humility?

Somehow, I just don’t see that as having happened in several decades, and certainly not now.

Entitlement and arrogance are the antithesis of prayer.

Forty-three percent of Americans now say they don't know what Obama's religion is at all.

One FReeper (I don't remember who) summed it up about as cleanly as anyone: "Obama is very likely a 'cultural' muslim, which means he abides by and respects the cultural and societal aspects of islam, but spiritually is probably an atheist."

Someone better tell Hussien that Ramadan is not a Christian holiday. He keeps celebrating with Muslims every year. WTF?
