When you don’t have much substance to make a case about why your policies are better than that other smart guy and resort to making up stories using religion to stirrup emotions preaching lies in the church, you have pretty much lost your credibility as a Christian.
That is pretty much what happened to that fake ass Billy Graham’s son, Evangelist Franklin Graham on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked about if President Obama is a christian. He said, Obama “has said he’s a Christian, so I just have to assume that he is.” He continued spreading his back hand lies to create doubt and refused to acknowledge if he could say for sure that Obama is indeed of the Christian faith saying, “All I know is I’m a sinner, and God has forgiven me of my sins… you have to ask every person”.
However, when asked about GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s religion, Graham does not think he has to ask about Santorum’s faith giving a crystal clear answer about his faith saying “his values are so clear on moral issues. No question about it… I think he’s a man of faith”. Oh well, Graham is one of them typical opportunistic evangelist who have run out of arguments about President Obama’s policies but try to cast to the idiotic evangelical GOP base to change the conversation from the good this President is doing and make it about character.
Rick Santorum is no different questioning the President’s faith today and even in 2008 questioning all liberals faith when he said that there is no such things as liberal christian. Mitt Romney’s who has his own religious issues since he is not a GOP accepted Christian went all out to tar the President character since the opportunity presented itself to cater to the GOP religious “bigots” when he said President Obama has “fought against religion’’ and is pushing for a “secular’’ agenda that is grounded in “phony” faith.
This is a repeat of what had happened in 2007 when Barack Obama began his campaign to run for President. There were so many allegations that he is a secretly Muslim, who follows a non-Christian religion and is an antichrist. Even in 2005 when he took his oath of office as a U.S. Senator, the religious Right smeared their lies that he put his hand on a Quran rather than a Bible. A survey conducted by Pew Research Center had found that 10% of respondents believed that President Obama is a Muslim.
Well, the media does not help but spark the controversy so that they can get more ratings since they don’t discuss much of the President’s faith except sensationalize the Republicans talking point. So, here is what we who respect all kinds of faith must do to get the truth out. We must speak the truth about the Presidents’ faith to these “religious bigots” who are trying to cast doubt on the President with facts and sharing the videos below would be a good start to debunk any rumors that are being used to paint President Obama anything other than a Christian.
