U.S. Politics: A Presidents Religion is a political breaker
On the campaign trail, Republicans acuse Obama of being Muslim
So what is the presidents religion?
Did everyone forget about Rev. Wright?
It seems like it was just yesterday that the Republican Party was making waves about the fact that Obama was a Muslim.
John Boehner questioned Obama's religion; the likes of Rev. Graham, a radical evangelical making reference to his faith because of Obama's fathers faith, whom by the way he didn't even know growing up. The Fox network continued to report maliciously that he was a Muslim because of his middle name. Rush Limbaugh asked him to prove his religion?
Most polls showed that Republicans believed that Obama was Muslim.
Footage of Rev. Wright was found and the GOP thought it would be more damaging and divisive.
Then, Obama was suddenly a member of a Christian church for 20 years, whose minister was the "radical" Rev. Wright.
Pastors who pray with Obama say he's devout Christian. He mentioned the fact that he's a Christian in his book and on the campaign trail. It was Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell of Windsor Village United Methodist Church in Houston, who said it best. He said, "There is a fairly effective 24-hour a day noise box out there intentionally misrepresenting the faith of the president, and it's very unfortunate."
So which is it, GOP? Is he a Christian or a Muslim? You can't have it both ways.
This became nothing more than another point of distraction from the Party of No Solutions. Doesn't anyone ever ask themselves, "why is it that we don't hear much these days about his religion?" Could it be because they don't need the rhetoric anymore? Just goes to show, it was never about facts or getting to the truth. Merely a ploy to play on the American voter.
