What BNI readers have known for the past two years and the rest of America is finally acknowledging: Barack Hussein Obama is now, and always has been, a Muslim.
WASHINGTON — Nearly two years after Barack Obama’s election as U.S. president, a growing number of Americans identify his faith as Muslim, according to a new poll released Thursday.
Despite Mr. Obama’s attendance in church and his repeated public statements about his Christian faith, nearly one in five respondents on the survey said they believed he is a practitioner of Islam, while only 34% of Americans correctly identified him as a Christian, down sharply from a year earlier.
Meanwhile, the percentage of people who say they are unsure what religion Obama practices has risen to 43%, from 34% a year ago.
The poll found one third of conservative Republicans believe Mr. Obama is a Muslim, a figure that has nearly doubled. But the president’s faith was incorrectly identified by rising numbers of Democrats and independents too. Some 18% of independent voters thought Obama was Muslim, up eight percentage points, and fewer than half the president’s Democratic supporter believe him to be a Christian.
The poll was taken before Mr. Obama waded into a bitter dispute last week over plans for a mosque and interfaith centers just blocks from the New York site of the September 11, 2001 attacks. PEW FORUM
The poll was conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.
Could Obama be a Saudi-sponsored plant? Hmmmm
