Are these peopel LYING?

WASHINGTON — Pastors who've prayed with President Barack Obama defended his Christian faith Thursday as the White House downplayed new polling that showed a steep climb since he took office in the percentage of Americans who think he's Muslim or at least don't believe that he's Christian.

"He is a Christian by choice, a devout Christian," said Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell of Windsor Village United Methodist Church in Houston . Caldwell is among a group of Christian leaders whom Obama regularly calls for inspiration. Caldwell also officiated at the wedding of President George W. Bush's daughter Jenna.

Pastor Joel Hunter of Northland Church near Orlando, Fla. , said of Obama, "Those of us who've spent time with him and have had a part of forming his spiritual life can testify with certainty of his commitment to Christ."

  • Well I certainly don't think they're lying, just as I don't think he has any reason to lie about his faith. :)

  • I understand your point, what I don't understand is why people think it matters what faith he follows? It is not supposed to figure into a person's eligibility to hold public office, yet more and more lately, it is the big litmus test. It's very, very disturbing to me.

  • No they are not lying. President Obama is not a Muslim. The newsmedia and crazies out there live to sensationalize and over dramatize everything in this day and age. They do it because this country is full of misinformed people who actually listen to their crap.
