Skip to comments.Why are Americans confused about Obama's religion?

"..........In June,2012, Gallup asked,"Do you happen to know the religious faith of Barack Obama?" Forty-four percent said they did not know,while 36 percent said he is a Christian, 11 percent said he is a Muslim, and eight percent said he has no religion. The "don't know" group included 36 percent of Democrats.(A larger number of Republicans, 47 percent, said they didn't know Obama's religion,as did 46 percent of independents.)........
.....Whenever the issue pops up, Obama's most ardent supporters are quick to blame conservative media for misperceptions about Obama's religion. But it's possible something in Obama's public presentation of himself has also created confusion among a significant number of Americans about his religion. The fact is, Obama's religious roots and development have always been a complicated story. In 2010, after the Pew poll came out, I wrote about the causes of public confusion about Obama and faith, particularly the belief that he is a Muslim:........."

Perhaps it’s because Obama frequently says things like, “my Muslim faith just like my Christian faith,” as though Muslim was a type of Baptist. The two are inherently incompatible.
Because he was raised as a Muslim, is sympathetic to Islam, and refuses to call out Islamic terrorists for what they are, jihadis of the faith.
Why is Obama OK with Al Sharpton’s failure to pay taxes?
Does Obama think its OK that Tawana Brawley falsely accused whites of crimes?
Americans are not “confused”! They are waking up!
Obama is obviously as Christian as he is American. I cannot imagine why people are confused on either his birthplace or his religion.
Hey WaPo, all you so-called journalists are asking all the questions around the edges but not THE question, “Is obama a Muslim?” Oh that question is inappropriate, off limits, rude, disrespectful to the office of the prezident. You people are pathetic! If you don’t even get the question right, you’ll never get the answer right. Oh but you know that doncha? The WASHINGTON Post....what a joke you all are!
“..................Remember way back in the Spring of 2008, when Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes asked Hillary three times if she believed that Obama was a Muslim? She said no twice, but after the third time she hedged her bets and said As far as I know. The media and blogospheric reaction was to clutch pearls, hyperventilate and accuse Hillary of stoking rumors that Obama was indeed a Muslim.
Last night, two hacks from the Washington Post recycled the trick. The difference is this time Twitter exploded:.............”
If asked today, will Hillary shout “What difference does it make!!?”
There was a video posted here last night which ran about 10 minutes and was about all the things obama has done and said that prove he is a Muslim. At about the 1:30 mark begins a string of 4 times he says “The holy Koran says..” What was interesting is that each time he said that, for those exact 4 words, he points his index finger up. It’s that muzzie Gang sign. he’s selling it as though he’s just making a point. But now in retrospect we know what it really means.
I’m certainly not confused about it. He makes it quite clear.
I’m not confused, are you confused?
I question the devotion of the president to Christianity.
He said that he became a Christian as an adult. He said he was attracted to Christianity by tenets of the faith, such as how we are our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper.
For him to cite a completely mangled and misinterpreted version of a Bible story as his inspiration for Christianity tells me that he is not any sort of devout Christian, and that he doesn’t understand his own faith.
So based on what he has said about his faith, it causes me to question what sort of Christian he is.
He pronounces Koran with an Arabic inflection. Just saying........
How about his pronunciation of “ isLAM”? Creepy
I think it is simple
he is the Antichrist
“By their fruits you will know them.”
No confusion at all. Pure Satanism.
