Obama's Religion Still A Campaign Issue: Many Alabama, Mississippi Voters Believe President Is Muslim

The Huffington Post | By Chris Gentilviso Posted: 03/12/2012

Ask President Barack Obama about his religious affiliation, and he's a Christian. Ask Mississippi or Alabama voters, and you might find a different answer.

president barack obama religious affiliation christian mississippi alabama voters answer

In the midst of tight GOP primaries in both states, Public Policy Polling (PPP) has released information showing that a majority of likely GOP primary voters in the Deep South do not see Obama as a Christian. PPP's Alabama survey of 600 likely GOP primary voters found that only 14 percent consider Obama a Christian, while 45 percent said he is a Muslim and 41 percent answered that they were not sure.

A similar picture surfaced in Mississippi. Of 656 likely GOP primary voters surveyed, 12 percent said Obama was a Christian, 52 percent classified him as a Muslim, and 36 percent fell in the "not sure" category.

The survey emerges on the heels of a recent stream of public questioning regarding Obama's religion. Back on Feb. 18, Rick Santorum took aim at the president's beliefs, charging that his White House decisions are driven by a "different theology."

"It's not about your quality of life," Santorum told supporters at a Tea Party rally in Columbus, Ohio. "It's not about your jobs. It's about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible."

Three days later, evangelist Franklin Graham joined the chorus, leaning toward the same opinion of those unsure Southern voters. Obama "has said he's a Christian, so I just have to assume that he is," Graham said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Facing criticism from prominent black religious leaders, Graham later apologized for his remarks.

"I regret any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president, Mr. Obama," he said in a statement.

Religion rumors are nothing new for Obama. Back in August 2010, a poll showed that almost one-fifth of all Americans believed he is a Muslim. Obama responded in an interview with "NBC Nightly News" saying that "the facts are the facts" regarding his Christian faith.

    How do you know if Obama's lying? His mouth is moving!

    He says whatever he has to say, to get what he wants! Manipulation, impersonation and desperation! The fact that the question is being asked, answers the question!

    Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
    Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
    Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
    Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    2 Tim 3:
    1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
    2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
    3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
    4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
    5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
    6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
    7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (Jesus Christ. -St.John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me).

    taqiyya to other muslms is tolerated when the ultimate goal of islam is subjugation/enslavement of the target is to islam.

    Murder of muslims is not allowed either ( such as 9/11) unless said murders achieve the goal of islam/shari'a .. which is to subjugate the targets to islam/shari'a/enslavement .

    here is the saddest proofs of this this truth about islam alongside actual READING of hadith of Bukhari , in action today by islam commonly everywhere it exists planetwide without exception since Muhammed begat it circa 650 AD.

    you speak truth most Americans cannot grasp the import .... Many muslms came to America to escape shari'a/islam. ..but that cannot be until islam/shari'a changes toward what Muhammed prophesised shortly before his demise ( fatah ul bari ) . There is no escape from evil when people worship religions/theocracies and males and themselves and prophets.

    I believe Obama/Sotero is muslim... and is only favourable to slam/shari'a JUST AS HE WROTE IN ONE OF HIS OWN BOOKS! .

    One cannot BE American or christian or in favour of freedom and be " PRO" islam.

    To claims such status is to prove one has ZERO knowledge of anything concerning the word " freedom".

    to the multiple people who claim to be christians or muslims who deny what is stated here..

    ALL I can tell you is , you do not know what you are talking about.

    How can YOU know I am not lying? EASILY. Simply READ entire torah, nt, qa'ran , and hadith of Bukhari with YOUR own eyebals. It is not that difficult... only consuming of time.

    When you do not do this... your silly untruthful responses are proof.

    I cannot judge his Christianity. Unless he were to display some kind of overwhelming evidence, like the pastor praying for his death, only he knows his personal relationship with God.

    Some people can be Christian and be severely misguided, and then some people claiming to be Christians are 100% not.

    All this ridiculous rhetoric about Obama being a Muslim is simply the Right's strategy for bringing him down, along with all the other hate-filled labels and depictions. The Right has no positive strategy of its own so they just bash Obama at every chance they get. I think it's called jealousy.

    Oh, Yes, the Right is ssssssssssssooooooooooooo jealous of Obama. And the Left just loved George Bush and never said a discouraging word about him. They never made fun of the way he talked, never said that his policies sucked, etc., correct? It's always the Right that is putting down the Left, never the other way around. But when the Right brings attention to Obama's policies and practices, we're prejudice or jealous, or both, right??? Jealousy has NOTHING to do with the right wanting Obama out of office. The right is NOT trying to bring Obama down, they are trying to get him out of office before we become a completely Socialist nation, since Socialism has never been a good type of gov. for the people, but is heaven for the rulers. Socialism and Communism are both adequate forms of g'vmt in purity, but they are NEVER applied in their purest form. Why do you suppose that the USSR (United Soviet SOCIALIST Republic) has disbanded and is now Russia? Why did the Italian and German systems of g'vmt under Mussolini and Hitler fail? Socialism doesn't work for very long because the rulers pollute the system and bring it down with their greed. It seems an impossibility to have a True Socialist nation in pure form, by the many attempts and failures in the past. Obama was taught by Social...

Obama was taught by Socialists that this is the only way to live, and by what I have seen in his performance in the last years, he is doing his best to bring America to the point where we can easily become a Socialist nation. I wish that he would just go to some other country that wants Socialism, and help them rule, and he can take anyone else who wants to change America with him. We've been doing fine for over 225 years, why mess with a good thing when you know it works,

    The fact that the question is being asked is sad because there's absolutely no reasonable evidence to suggest he's a Muslim. And even if he was a Muslim, his religion has nothing to do with being President. The only people who want to discuss his religion are ignorant bigots like yourself.

    WOW! You know nothing about me and call me an ignorant bigot! I chose "he's a Muslim" due to the lack of any other choices. I have no idea if he's Muslim, I just know he doesn't represent what it means to be a Christian.

    You wrote, "The only people who want to discuss his religion are ignorant bigots like yourself."

    Did the fact that you are here discussing his religion ever cross your mind? How bout that you resorted to calling me names because my views are different then yours? Hmmm... "Bigotry is the state of mind of a "bigot," a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one who exhibits intolerance or animosity toward members of a group.
    You may be the first self proclaimed irrational, ignorant bigot I've met! Benjamin Franklin said it very well,

    "Clean your finger before you point at my spots."
    --Benjamin Franklin

    Additionally, his religion has nothing to do with being President ... TO YOU! Thank you for sharing your opinion, although I dont agree! In fact... I couldn't disagree more!

    I'm calling you an ignorant bigot based on your ignorant comment. How does Obama not represent what it means to be a Christian? And if he doesn't, how does that make him a Muslim?

    And his religion having nothing to do with being President isn't just my opinion, it's a constitutional fact. Ever heard of Seperation of Church and State?
