Time Poll: One in Four Americans Believe Barack Obama is Muslim

Here is the full 2 minutes of the famous 13 second clip where Obama states he is a Muslim. ( his Muslim faith)

TIME Poll: Majority Oppose Mosque, Many Distrust Muslims

One in four Americans believe Barack Obama is Muslim. Less than half of Americans were persuaded that his attendance at a wack-a-doodle church for 20 years would qualify him as a Christian.


Opponents of the planned Islamic community center and mosque near Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan have public opinion firmly in their corner. According to a new TIME poll, 61% of respondents oppose the construction of the Park51/Cordoba House project, compared to 26% who support it. More than 70% concur with the premise that proceeding with the plan would be an insult to the victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center…
…Twenty-eight percent of voters do not believe Muslims should be eligible to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. Nearly one third of the country thinks adherents of Islam should be barred from running for President — slightly higher than the 24% who mistakenly believe that the current occupant of the Oval Office is himself a Muslim. In all, just 47% of respondents believe Obama is a Christian; 24% declined to respond to the question or said they were unsure, and 5% believe he is neither Christian nor Muslim.


1-in-4 Americans Believe Obama is a Muslim; Here’s Why

Expose Obama

The Left is seething over a new poll showing nearly one-in-four Americans believe Barack Obama is a Muslim. A Time magazine poll found 24 percent of all Americans believe Obama is a Muslim. Another poll conducted by the Pew Research Center set the number at 18 percent. That's nearly double the number that said the same thing in March 2009 (10 percent). Both polls showed the same trend: more Americans believed Obama is a Muslim and fewer believed he is a Christian this year than last year.

Why is this? Left-wing pundits blame it on "Republican smear tactics" and disinformation. However, there is a simpler explanation: the president’s own actions lead people to believe he is not a Christian.

According to the Pew poll, “Eleven percent [of those saying Obama is a Muslim] said they learned it from Obama’s behavior and words.”

What actions might lead the American people to believe the president is a Muslim and not a Christian — or at least, not a real one?

One could begin with his behavior in the last week. At a White House function observing a Muslim religious practice, Obama announced that he supports the construction of the Ground Zero mosque but said nothing about the Port Authority of New York’s decision not to rebuild a Greek Orthodox Church destroyed on 9/11. Although replacing a church with a mosque is a vital aspect of jihad, Obama affirmed yesterday that he has “no regrets” for his selective comments.

* Obama has yet to attend the National Prayer Breakfast but hosted an Iftar dinner breaking the Ramadan fast.

* He has bowed to the king of Saudi Arabia — and then lied about it, not exactly an act in keeping with Christian morality.

* He spent at least $23 million promoting Kenya’s new pro-abortion, pro-Sharia constitution.

* He lives in the same Chicago neighborhood as Louis Farrakhan (a close friend of Obama’s pastor, Jeremiah Wright), which is patrolled by the Nation of Islam’s youth brigade, the Fruit of Islam.

* Although three-quarters of the American people call themselves Christians, Obama has insisted, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation.” Yet he said elsewhere America is “one of the largest Muslim nations in the world.” His religious adviser, Eboo Patel, once deemed the United States “the ideal place for the renewal of Islam.”

Compiling his statements — as this video does — shows the full weight of his admiration of Islam, on display for all the world since at least his groveling speech in Cairo last June.

The video shows the president’s high regard for the religion of the 9/11 hijackers.

* One of his faith advisers, Harry Knox, called members of the Knights of Columbus “foot soldiers of a discredited army of oppression” for opposing gay “marriage” and insisted the Book of Romans “is not true” because it condemns homosexuality.

* Obama himself has mocked the Scriptures while asserting the Sermon on the Mount supports same-sex “marriage.”

* The alleged “committed Christian” has a deep commitment to abortion, although true Christians have opposed abortion since the first century. One of his first acts as president was to restore taxpayer funding for overseas abortions, which Ronald Reagan discontinued with his Mexico City policy. He signed a meaningless executive order that “banned” using ObamaCare from financing abortion, but that practice has already begun in Pennsylvania and Maryland. His selection of two feminists for the Supreme Court show he wants to keep infanticide legally protected for a very long time.

* One of those Supreme Court appointees, Elena Kagan, showed the administration has no fealty to the traditional family. She drafted a perfunctory, half-hearted “defense” of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as a union of one man and one woman. However, she added, “this Administration does not support DOMA as a matter of policy, believes that it is discriminatory, and supports its repeal.” Obama extended some benefits to same-sex “partners” of federal workers this summer, in the hopes Congress will mandate full benefits.

* Even his stimulus plan funded a project that threatens the home of Pastor Greg Sheets in Newark, Ohio.

His every action repudiates Christianity yet uplifts and advances the religion of Islam.

As Jesus Christ said, “By their fruits, ye shall know them.”

White House says Obama is Christian, prays daily



President Barack Obama is a Christian who prays daily, a White House official said Thursday, trying to tamp down growing doubts about the president's religion.

A new poll showed that nearly one in five people, or 18 percent, believe Obama is Muslim. That was up from 11 percent who said so in March 2009. The survey also showed that just 34 percent said Obama is Christian, down from 48 percent who said so last year. The largest share of people, 43 percent, said they don't know his religion.

White House spokesman Bill Burton said most Americans care more about the economy and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and "they are not reading a lot of news about what religion the president is." He commented on Air Force One as Obama headed for a vacation in Massachusetts on Martha's Vineyard.

Burton added, "The president is obviously a Christian. He prays everyday."

The survey, conducted by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center and its affiliated Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, is based on interviews conducted before the controversy over whether Muslims should be permitted to construct a mosque near the World Trade Center site. Obama has said he believes Muslims have the right to build an Islamic center there, though he's also said he won't take a position on whether they should actually build it.

In a separate poll by Time magazine/ABT SRBI conducted Monday and Tuesday — after Obama's comments about the mosque — 24 percent said they think he is Muslim, 47 percent said they think he is Christian and 24 percent didn't know or didn't respond.


Wild Thing's comment........

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck.....that says really fits this.

I really think the number of people who think he is a Muslim is much higher. People are not being honest with the pollster.

"He commented on Air Force One as Obama headed for a vacation in Massachusetts on Martha's Vineyard"

LOL yest another vacation for Obama and his family.

Burton added, "The president is obviously a Christian. He prays everyday."

Excuse me like I am supposed to believe whatever anyone connected to Obama says......I don't think so. Besides, there is more on Obama being a Muslim then there is that he is not.

I am sure that he prays daily--five times a day, kneeling on a rug, facing southeast (toward Mecca)...

It's refreshing to have a president who keeps his religion to himself. I am sick and tired of Presidents who have pandered to the Christian right by wearing their religion on their sleeve.
The fact that some think Obama is a Christian and others think he is a Muslim means that Obama hasn't had to make public appearances in church to patronize a particular group.
When I was young the controversy was over President Kennedy. Could a Catholic be president of the US.
Since then no one has questioned if Catholics can make good presidents.
Hopefully someday we will say that about Buddhists, Muslims, Jews and agnostics too.

This lying sack of crap only keeps Christianity to himself. He flaunts his regard for a lunatic's mad ravings called islam to the world. The fact that he stuffs his face while muslims fast means nothing as in islam it is OK to deceive in the name of islam.
