Still?! You’ve got to be kidding me.
Responses in the poll tended to fall along ideological lines, Pew found. About one-third of self-described conservative Republicans said they believe Obama is a Muslim.
“Those who say he is a Muslim overwhelmingly disapprove of his job performance, while a majority of those who think he is a Christian approve of the job Obama is doing,” said a Pew report about the poll. Pew found that “even among many of his supporters and allies, less than half now say Obama is a Christian.”
Obama has spoken frequently about his Christian faith, including at the annual National Prayer Breakfasts and at a White House event celebrating Easter this year with Christian leaders. He receives a daily devotional prayer sent to his BlackBerry device.
As a candidate, Obama participated in a forum led by prominent Christian pastor Rick Warren, in which he said his “starting point” is “Jesus Christ died for my sins, and that I am redeemed through him.”
And yet people don’t believe. I’m all for being skeptical of politicians’ proclaimed religious beliefs. But this is absurd.
