The Rev. Franklin Graham on Friday said that President Barack Obama was "born a Muslim" because the religion's "seed" is passed from the father.

Graham made the remark during an interview with CNN's John King set to air Friday night after being asked about a new Pew poll showing that 31 percent of Republicans believe the president - a Christian - is Muslim.


Asked by King if he, too, has doubts about the president's faith, Graham said that Obama's "problem is he was born a Muslim."

"The seed is passed through the father," Graham said. "He was born a Muslim. His father was a Muslim; the seed of Muslim is passed through the father like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother. He was born a Muslim; his father gave him an Islamic name."

Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham, acknowledged that Obama has said he is a Christian.  

"He has renounced Islam, and he has accepted Jesus," Graham said. "That's what he has said he has done. I cannot say that he hasn't, so I just have to believe the president is what he has said."

"But the confusion is because his father is a Muslim; he was born a Muslim. The Islamic world sees the president as one of theirs. That's why Qadhafi calls him his son. They see him as a Muslim," he added. "But, of course, the president says he is a Christian, and we just have to accept it as that."
