Critics continue to question whether Obama is a Christian

It seems that President Barack Obama just can’t get a break from critics despite the excellent job he’s doing as president. Once again it is not his policy that is at issue, it is whether he is a Christian. All of this arises from Obama’s refusal to paint the fight against the Islamic terrorist group ISIS as a fight against the religion of Islam.

Potential Republican presidential candidate Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin is the latest high-profile figure to doubt the religion of President Obama.

Walker stated “I don’t know” in response to whether he believes that President Obama is a Christian. This is despite Obama’s frequent assertions that he is of the Christian faith and not Muslim as far right-wing fanatics claim. Walker went on to say “I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that. I’ve never asked him that …You’ve asked me to make statements about people that I haven’t had a conversation with about that.”

Perhaps if Gov. Walker attended or read about the most recent National Prayer Breakfast, he would know the answer. At the event, Obama reaffirmed his faith and also stated, “We see sectarian war in Syria, the murder of Muslims and Christians in Nigeria, religious war in the Central African Republic, a rising tide of anti-Semitism and hate crimes in Europe, so often perpetrated in the name of religion. … And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often [were] justified in the name of Christ.”

    I guess – when you have nothing else – you revert back to the same old tired and weak rhetoric. Good old Conservative values, and the belief that a Black man could never love this country as much as a White man.

    Its a damn shame that folks who are calling themselves “christians” are not “Christians” at all! They just learned a phase and are simply repeating it, without a clue of what they are talking about.And they all have the audacity to question whether or not President Obama is “Christian”! These are a bunch of crazy backwards ass people! So why do we bother to allow them to interject themselves into our politics? All this is BS people!
