Did you know that many Americans can't name Obama's religion? Tsk, tsk. You Americans. Let's see what silly answers you give.
34% of you say Christian. Good boys and girls - you get a cookie.
11% of you say muslim. Bad boys and girls. Too much Fox News for you. No cookie.
8% of you say non/no religion. Let's... not talk about this right now.
44% of you say you have no idea. Tsk - Christian, ladies and gentlemen, Christian. No cookie.
And how do we know he's a Christian? Gallup to the rescue.
Obama is a Christian and has labeled himself as such as in his writings and interviews, and while living in Chicago he attended the Trinity United Church of Christ. Since moving into the White House, Obama has attended several different Christian churches.
Well. Glad we cleared that up. He said he's a Christian, he attended Church for a bit. Of course, he stopped going regularly once he became president, but he's gone now and then - usually with cameras in tow. Strangely, right around the times that Christianity has been subject to question.
Let me turn off the monotonous sarcasm and say this: there's something wrong with Gallup stating definitely that Obama is a Christian, on the grounds that "Well, he said he is, and also he's gone into a church here and there". Never, not once, is it suggested that maybe a politician would misrepresent his religious beliefs to curry favor. In fact, the very idea that one's religion or stated religion would have an impact on, say... election chances, is utterly glossed over.
It's as simple as, nope, he's Christian, he said he was, nothing to see here, you're all wrong. Saying Obama is Christian is "correct", period, end of story. Does He believe God created the world? Does He believe in the resurrection? Does He adhere to, say... the apostles' creed? Tut tut, what does that have to do with anything? He said he's Christian. End of story.
This is the sort of bias that flies under almost every radar - the little things.
