Americans Clueless about Who Obama Worships
According to a new Gallup poll. Barack Obama’s religion is not clear. Of the people surveyed, only 34% believe he is a Christian, which is what Obama professes to be, while an even greater number, 44%, say they have no idea, and 11% say he is a Muslim.
When the numbers are broken down to party affiliation, an interesting fact emerges; 18% of Republicans say he is a Muslim, while only 3% of Democrats do, which implies Democrats are more likely to believe that Obama is telling the truth about being a Christian. But among independents, 12% believe that Obama is a Muslim, which means that independents lean toward the Republican suspicion of Obama’s religious affiliation.
There is bound to be suspicion of Obama’s Christianity; he has championed abortion, saying, “I have consistently had a 100% pro-choice rating with Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America,” he countenanced the rantings of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright for 20 years, and Wright’s views are anathema to most Christian Americans; he has endorsed gay marriage, which contravenes traditional Christian principles; he has aligned himself with radical Islamists by supporting the Arab Spring; he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia while refusing to bow before the Queen of England, and he was schooled in a madrassa in Indonesia as a child.
But here’s the real litmus test: in a 2004 interview, when asked what sin was, Obama replied, “Being out of alignment with my values.”
Given the fact that sin is a denial of the holy, that, ladies and gentlemen, is Barack Obama reduced to the essential fact: whatever his values represent is holy, and anything denying his values is sinful. If that’s not a God-complex, it’s a God-denying faith that certainly flies in the face of Christian belief.
No wonder Americans have no clue what Obama worships; the idea that someone worships himself is monumentally difficult for mere mortal Americans to understand.
