Now there is a new movement to make our President show his baptismal Certificate to prove he is a Christian and not a Muslim. When will it end? And the last time I checked, there is no Religion requirement to be elected President. FWIW, I believe the President when he tells us he's a Christian but it would not make one bit of difference if he was a Muslim. Muslim, Christian, or Marxist? When questions came up during the campaign about Barack Obamas religious affiliation, his aides flatly asserted that he was a practicing Christian and was baptized in the Trinity United Church of Christ. However, some of the same questions have come up again in the wake of opinion polls finding people confused about Obamas religious identity. Our media cannot understand the confusion. For most in the media, it is cut-and-dried: Obama is a Christian. People who dont believe it are dumb or misled. But calling yourself something is not the same thing as proving it is the case. This claim deserves to be scrutinized, even when it involves a sensitive and personal matter such as religious belief. Unfortunately for Obama and his backers, the same Obama campaign apparatus which claimed that he is a baptized Christian asserted that the mysterious Frank in Obamas book, Dreams from My Father, was just a black civil rights activist. It turned out that Frank was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party member under surveillance by the FBI who served as a mentor for a young Obama in Hawaii. The 600-page FBI file on Davis even suggests he was an espionage agent on behalf of the Soviet Union. Dupes, a forthcoming book by Professor Paul Kengor, promises to take another close look at Obamas Frank Marshall Davis connection. So what the Obama presidential campaign says about Obamas religious affiliation is not something to be taken at face value. They have a vested interest in making Obama look more acceptable to the American people. As President, he has gone to church only a few times, which undermines the claim that he is a practicing Christian. People see him playing golf on Sunday; they dont see him going to church. Muslim, Christian, or Marxist?
