Obama’s Religion

Jump to Comments

Widely reported recently, including this excerpt from the New York Times:

Since October 2008, the percentage of Americans who say the president is a Muslim has risen from 12 percent to 18 percent. The percentage of people who think he is a Christian has fallen from 51 percent to 34 percent. The polling data indicated that those who identified themselves as conservative Republicans were most likely to say that he is a Muslim.

Of course that is the same tea-and-nut bag crowd that thinks he was born outside the US (which, as Ahnold Schwarzenegger can tell you, prevents you from becoming president of the US).

The previous presidential incumbent took every opportunity to remind us that Jesus was his BFF and that God was on his (and therefore our, if you were for him not against him) side. Obama does not wear his religion on his sleeve.

So what would Jesus say? (WWJS). Let’s see:

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. (KJV, Matthew 6: 5-8)

Looks like Obama’s a Christian. Really Christian.
