There is some agreement that President Obama is a Christian, which Christian faith does he follow?
Like many Christians, Obama rarely attends a church service. He is a registered member of the Church of Christ sect.
Who cares? A person's faith has nothing to do with their ability to be a good leader.
Exactly. The constitution prohibits a test for religion as a requirement for public office. In other words our president can be of any faith, or no faith at all. We have a secular government.
I think that for some of our "good leaders" their practice of their faith was one aspect of their confidence in and example of their leadership, and that many of the founding fathers of our republic exemplified that aspect.
It was the founding fathers that wrote article 6 of the constitution which says that there is no religious test required for office.
The constitution does not dictate what I care about. It is not about a test it is about what I want in a leader. So I care.
Eric: Then recognize the importance of "voting" because we elect officials into office who "prevents" Presidents from doing as they desire! Remember Obama was Social Worker prior to his presidency (for the people)!
He IS NOT a Christian. He registered with the Church of Christ Sector in order to please the people of the USA, because he does not attend Church like past presidents have done. He is a fake. He has never attended college either. He is just doing things to appease the people. If you think he is Christian, heaven help you.
He is still a Christain no matter how many times you repeat the lie that he isn't. This rumor is apparently never going to die. Fortunately, Obama does his job in spite of all the judgemental ignorant people that try to keep spreading these stories.
If you're a christian I just wish he isn't. And btw, who cares.
Islandbites, you are right. It doesn't matter what his religion is or isn't. Apparently, the only people who care are the ones that keep trying to spread false rumors about our president. He's not a Kenyan either, but some people won't listen.
He attended Occidental College, Columbia, and Harvard Law. He could not have practiced law at several prestigious firms, or taught constitutional law at University of Chicago, without attending college and obtaining degrees.
How do you know what someone's faith really is unless you know them? I know plenty of Christians who don't attend church regularly. Aren't you guys supposed to be a welcoming, accepting bunch?
No, Aime, they are a judgmental hateful bunch!
I'm not Aime & neither is Pres Obama (Social Worker/Pentecostal)! Unfortunately, he has to remain "politically correct" which Joshua DuBois affords! He was assoc w/Church of Christ until "conflict!"Now, DuBois(ex-White House) "pol corr!" GOD no
Jeremiah Wright who is now a retired senior pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago and former pastor of President Obama preached sermons against former "government" actions which was in "conflict" with President Obama's position of President! Unlike Kim Davis, President Obama resigned his faith "appeasing" the people!
Do we all recall what President Obama did prior to becoming Senator? If not, he was a Social Worker, defending the "least!" Former actions of government spoken of by his former pastor is how the President "really" feels, but in order to be "politically correct," he had to "turn his back" on his pastor and GOD (Truth)!
After succombing to the public, In order to remain "politically correct," he sought one who was "affiliated" with the White House! "Joshua DuBois, former director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, was informally the pastor to the president" (Retrieved from ABC News 09/23/15) who is of the "Pentecostal" faith!
Regarding the massacre at Sandy Hooks Elementary "Obama meditated on 2 Corinthians 4:16-5:1 "during and after Newtown" to draw strength as a "comforter," DuBois said. The Bible passage reads in part: "Do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, inwardly, we are being renewed day by day." (ABC News) "Inwardly renewed?" WOW! President Obama must know "It's a Spiritual Journey" (Walk) too!
Don't let this man (who is no greater than us in Spirit) exceed our understanding! It's a "Spiritual" journey folks not about "a building" or "religion" rather those who follow the doctrine of the Apostles (Acts 2:42 or Galatians 1:6-9)!

With so much vocal an organizational opposition to President Obama and his policies (such as they are) after only 9 months in office, is such criticism warranted? Does the opposition reflect minority intolerance, or a fear of growing minority influence?
