Quiz: who said this: "[I]f you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world."

A few weeks ago, he claimed America is NOT a Christian nation.

I believe we are neither. We are a melting pot of several different types of faiths. ( Just to clear up any confusion on my standings.)

According to an academic review of available survey-based data in 2001, informed by information provided by Muslim organizations and mosques, the highest reasonable total number of Muslims in the United States is 2.8 million.

A more realistic number, supported by statistically significant survey data comparable to what has been used to to calculate the sizes of other religious groups, is less than 2 million Muslims in the United States, or about 0.5% of the total population.

Do you know who said this? I do, just wonderin' who else heard it. Also, how can he say we could be considered a muslim nation when its around .5 % of the population, do the rest of us not count?

  • Obama said it. But I dont believe he implied this is a muslim nation... he actually EXAGGERATED the amount of muslims who do live in the US. Just another point to show that Obama doesnt research the facts before he starts spouting off at the mouth.
