Many Americans Can’t Name Obama’s Religion


PRINCETON, NJ – Just 34% of Americans correctly say U.S. President Barack Obama is a Christian, while 44% say they don’t know Obama’s religion and 11% say he is a Muslim.
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.
Americans are indeed more likely to say Obama is a Christian — mostly a generic “Christian” or “Protestant” — than to say he identifies with any other religion. In addition to those who name a specific religion or don’t offer a guess, 8% say he does not have a religious affiliation.
Americans are more likely to know Mitt Romney’s religion than Obama’s religion, with most Americans correctly saying Romney is a Mormon and a smaller 33% saying they don’t know
Bee's Note:
My friend Grumpy's post about Obama's "questionable" religious background is a discussion being passed around group E-mails and other Conservative blogs.  Since many have debated voting for a Mormon and accusing Romney of belonging to a "cult", it is only natural for folks to wonder about Obama's beliefs.  
Because a man's convictions is also a part of a man's character.  And, what a character Obama has turned out to be since he first moved into the White House.  His on-going support for groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, apologies to the Islamic world for America, etc. have many Americans wondering what makes Obama "tick".  What American President/patriot would bow to Saudi kings, support and promote Islam (over other religions practiced in America), openly mock the Scriptures of the Bible, gift a terrorist group  (Hamas) with 900 MILLION DOLLARS shortly after taking Office, and during his term in Office fail to understand that by his actions to become the Apologist-in-Chief for Islam, his foreign policies and new-found "friends" in this world are not friends of the West and America, but the very enemies our troops have been fighting for over 10 years.  He has deliberately undermined and insulted American allies during his propaganda speeches about Islam that make our blood run cold.  He openly, by his own ideology (and agenda) caused our true allies concern and in the process, America has lost the trust of its dearest friends.
Would a Christian mock the very Bible they claim to trust for the truth?  Hardly!  
Years ago, people wondered if by voting for JFK, President Kennedy would be more loyal to the Pope than to the Constitution of the United States.  During Kennedy's term in Office, before an assassin's bullet cut his life short,Kennedy proved his character and strong leadership skills during the Cuban incident.  I was not a Kennedy fan, but in looking back at previous president's lives and actions, President Kennedy was an American Patriot and no one doubted his background as a Catholic.  No one ever doubted former President Bush's belief as a Christian or his patriotism.  These men were/are not perfect, but perfection was not what any human expects of another; when taking the Oath of Office, a promise to be perfect is not included in that oath.   Here's the oath:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defendthe Constitution of the United States.”
It is because of Obama's actions throughout his first term in Office that puzzles Americans.  He has not fulfilled his Oath, by-passes both Congress and the Constitution whenever it suits him and therefore, must be removed from Office.  Too late for Impeachment, so the voting booths this November will allow Americans to speak out and force Obama to leave our White House.
