    A few weeks ago, the bloviator-in-chief moved his lips in another deathless lumbada of badda -- another nugget of Obamaesque [un]truthiness. His words: “An attack on islam is an attack on all faiths.” Outside a Baltimore mosque, he added, “When any religious group is targeted, we all have a responsibility to speak up.” That goes double for you, too, Mr. President. And you have the means, and the daily morning update briefings, to be hyperaware of the true extent of threats against “religious groups.” And those under threat are far and away not Muslims. But equal faiths is simply not...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Folks, I have a question. Barack Obama, he goes into this radical mosque in Baltimore yesterday, he talks about how Islam has always been part of the fabric of America, and I stopped. I said, "Really?" I didn't know that. I didn't know that Islam had always been such a major, major part of America. But, anyway, he's constantly talking it up, is he not? President Obama is routinely defending it, talking it up, promoting it. He talks about how awesome Islam is all the time, one of the most beautiful sounds he's ever heard is the...

    President Obama lamented the rancorous, divided state of U.S. politics in a wide-ranging interview with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marilynne Robinson. In the unusual discussion, Obama revealed some of his longstanding frustrations with politics while asking the Iowa author questions about her family, her Christian faith and writings. “How do you reconcile the idea of faith being really important to you and you caring a lot about taking faith seriously with the fact that, at least in our democracy and our civic discourse, it seems as if folks who take religion the most seriously sometimes are also those who are suspicious...

    “The fallacy that President Obama is a Muslim has tripped up many a politician,” said NPR’s Jessica Taylor hopefully on Friday, “and on Thursday night, GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump was its latest victim.” Trump’s presumed faux pas was his failure to correct a questioner who asserted that Barack Obama was a Muslim. Taylor’s real error as a reporter, like that of all her mainstream colleagues, was to dismiss the questioner’s assertion as a “fallacy” without providing any evidence to the contrary. Strange but true, reporters pride themselves on knowing nothing about Obama’s roots. Last month, for instance, Catherine Thompson...

Embedded within that question was an accusation that the current occupant of the White House was a Muslim. The Trump campaign has largely been silent about the issue since that point in time; however, any number of progressive Republican candidates have been convinced...

    Washington (CNN)—A new CNN/ORC poll finds that although misperceptions about Barack Obama's religious beliefs and background persist, they are not as widespread as some recent polling has suggested. Obama was born in Hawaii and is a Christian. Overall, when asked "where was Obama born, as far as you know?" 80% of adults say they believe Obama was born in the United States, while 20% said that he was born outside the country. And just 9% of those who think he was born elsewhere believe there is solid evidence of that; the other 11% say it is just their suspicion.Misperceptions about...

    When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general...

And while gazing together at a revered image of Cuba’s patroness, the priest reminded the president of the suffering of Cuba’s people. “Only in the United States that’s possible,” said the Rev.

    A couple of readers responded to my recent post about the religions of Sarah Palin and Christine O'Donnell by asking why I didn't spend my time digging deeper into the religious history of President Obama. As one of them reminded me, Obama attended school "in a MUSLIM country." A real reporter would keep probing, he said. I took that admonition to heart and went searching for clear evidence. And truly, I uncovered information that could be troubling to every real American. In fact, Obama did spend several of his childhood years in Indonesia, the world's largest mostly-Muslim nation. He attended...

    In 2008, video recordings of Jeremiah WrightÂ’s sermons came closer than anything else to derailing Barack ObamaÂ’s presidential campaign. Now, four years later, there appears to be audio recordings of Wright that may be damaging to Obama as well. Those recordings, allegedly in the possession of author Edward Klein, consist of Wright telling Klein some unflattering things, to include charges that Obama attempted to silence Wright in 2008. One claim had to do with ObamaÂ’s Christianity. During an appearance on Sean HannityÂ’s radio show, Klein said that Wright wouldnÂ’t go so far as to say he converted Obama from Islam...

    Whether President Barack Obama is truly a Christian has been a hot topic for debate recently, especially after the mainstream media attempted to trip up pro-life Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker on the question. The question of whether anyone is truly a Christian person has more to do with faith than anything else. Does the person in question truly have an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and acknowledged the fact that he died on the cross to save humanity from our sins and bridge the gap sin caused between ourselves and God. While that question has more to do with worldview...

    POLITICO has run a piece citing various claims that President Obama is a practicing Christian of some sort. Nice try. But the article is entirely unconvincing. Obama isn’t prevented from going to a Christian church and doesn’t cite security reasons for not attending. Instead, he “worries that his presence detracts from other worshippers’ experience,” the publication said. We are told he reads scripture and prays in private. In 2008, when he first ran for president, the Obama campaign insisted he was a “committed Christian.” Glenn Greenwald, who later became NSA defector Edward Snowden’s mouthpiece, found Obama’s claim so alarming that...

Conservative pundit Dr. Ben Carson was the keynote speaker at the 2013 affair.

    Author and speaker Diana Butler Bass suggests that we are in the process of reinventing American civil religion, the way we think about God and national purpose. And she says President Obama is part of that process. Obama, like his predecessors in the White House, has generally drawn the older form of civil religion complete with biblical language, social justice evangelicalism, and the themes of orthodox theology. But, she suggests, something has changed in the last couple of years. His speeches have included a view of God with an appeal to a wider faith audience, she says. “Gone is the...

    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.

    "Pundits identify themselves as card-carrying members of the establishment when they dutifully argue that Obama is a Christian. But black liberation theology — race hatred blended with Marxism under a thin veneer of mysticism — is hardly Christianity. Does this guy sound like a Christian?"

    In my last blog, Obama's Religion, I explained the new religion that is taking American churches by storm. That new religion is articulated and exalted by no less than President Obama himself. The religion adheres to the following belief: "Yes, Jesus is my Savior, but He's not the only one. Other religions are equally valid and accepted by God. Christianity is one way to God, but not the only way." An even greater travesty is that so many well-meaning Christians are buying into that preposterous belief. Why do I call it preposterous? Because it's equivalent to believing 2 + 2...

    "And it's not surprising then that they getbitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people whoaren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment oranti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." - Barack Obama For twenty years Barack Obama claimed to belong the Trinity Baptist Church where the pastor made grand exclamations: [VIDEO AT SITE] Then Obama threw both Wright and the church under the bus upon learning of the terrible things Wright had been saying for the past twenty years while Obama had been attending the church and not noticing. Once they were elected, Bill Clinton and...

    Televangelist and senior pastor of Houston’s Lakewood Church Joel Osteen explained on Fox News Channel’s “Huckabee” over the weekend that President Barack Obama reached out to Osteen and Lakewood. “He has reached out to us,” Osteen said. “And we have done some of the leadership things there at the White House with him and been able to pray with him — just simple things like that. And he’s been very kind and friendly to our ministry.” A number of Americans still have questions about Obama’s religious beliefs. Whether it is due to his 20 year attendance at the Rev. Jeremiah...

    N.B. bold red-letter emphasis is mine. The original article's emphasis is making the case that Barack Obama is a Muslim. My emphasis is that Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ claims to have "many Muslim members." --Dajjal http://www.sonsofapesandpigs.org/2008/02/press-release-america-is-being.html Press Release: America is being fooled by Barak Hussein Obama!!

    Theological differences between the two yield different understandings of the path to economic advancement..Like President Obama, Mr. Cain belongs to a mostly black congregation with a black pastor. But that is where the similarities end. Stark differences between the political philosophies of these two men may be rooted in their profoundly different theological heritages. The churches both men are (or in the case of Mr. Obama, were) longtime members of are known for liberal activism, but with notable differences in their views of scripture. Mr. Cain's church, Antioch Baptist Church North in Atlanta, Ga., is theologically conservative, affirming the inerrancy...

The U.S. military and its allies are engaged in “Operation Enduring Freedom” in Afghanistan. One of the goals of this mission is to bring a lasting democracy to the Afghan people. Let’s face it, we’re trying to make Afghanistan more like the West, at least in terms of minority rights, women’s rights, and so on. But according to Senator Graham, in order to make Afghanistan more like America, we have to make America more like Afghanistan. If we want to win “Operation Enduring Freedom” over there, we...
