The Los Angeles Times editorial board takes issue with President Obama protesting the belief that he is Muslim. The LAT opines:

It’s easy to sympathize with President Obama over the drumbeat of misrepresentations of his religion, place of birth and even the validity of his Social Security number. But in protesting too much that he is a Christian — and one, moreover, who prays daily — the White House may be encouraging the impression that there is a religious test for the presidency and that a Muslim would fail it.

True in spirit, but naive in politics.
