EDITOR’S COMMENT: Frankly, I still don’t understand why President Obama gets so upset, when someone or some group hints or suggests that he is a Muslim. Particularly since, he goes out of his way to praise other Muslims at every opportunity, when seldom, if ever, saying anything about Christians.

The United States is being visited by Pope Francis, who is kind of a big deal in Christian circles. On the eve of that visit, some rube at a Trump rally offered the unforgivable viewpoint that the president is a Muslim. As if on cue, the Christian bona fides of President Obama were suddenly front and center, championed by every atheistic and/or secular media figure capable of reaching a camera or a microphone. This, apparently, is a significant part of their current job description. They serve and protect the president from scrutiny, and to smear and demean anyone who might express unflattering opinions based on their day to day observations. Actually exploring how such a question might arise in the first place, and whether there is any possible basis for suggesting that Barack Hussein Obama is not a Christian, is a fool’s errand.
How do we know President Obama is a Christian? Because he told us so, that’s how, and he never lies. Besides, there’s no way he’d say something to trick millions of people into a false sense of security, including about the faith he allegedly shares with them, while he attacks the fundamental building blocks of America, including Christian law, teachings and values. Is there? Of course not, don’t be silly.
Why, this is the president who told us that he believes marriage is between one man and one woman. How could anyone doubt his sincerity, especially after so many public declarations of his faith? He promised us just as certainly that he did not support gay marriage. He must have told us two dozen times, very publicly and persuasively, that if you liked your doctor, you could keep your doctor. And that there wouldn’t be any infringement of Christians’ religious principles and practices imposed upon them by the Affordable Care Act. So America, get a grip. He isn’t one of these anti-Christian haters who sics his attack dogs on people of faith, forcing them into court where he intends to have their religious rights vaporized before their very eyes, assuming the case lands in front of an ever-increasing number of secularized, anti-First Amendment liberal judges. He’d never do that because he’s a Christian, too.
In fact, he’s just as Christian as the rest of his party. I recall watching the 2012 Democratic National Convention when they went out of their way to discuss God, and His place in their platform. And the way they talk about evangelicals, and those who still attend church. Such passion! Why, I recall that the Mayor of Houston was so consumed by Christianity that she sought the text of all the sermons being delivered in Houston’s churches for some period, so she could read them in advance. Wow, you can’t find that sort of investment in Christianity anywhere other than the left. Read More..
