Pew Research Poll Shows that a Growing Number of Americas Believe Obama is a Muslim

According to the Pew Research Center, in the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, Americans believing that Obama's religion is Islam has grown. The survey was completed before Obama's support of a mosque constructed at Ground Zero of the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks.

Pew Research Poll:

A substantial and growing number of Americans say that Barack Obama is a Muslim, while the proportion saying he is a Christian has declined. More than a year and a half into his presidency, a plurality of the public says they do not know what religion Obama follows.

A new national survey by the Pew Research Center finds that nearly one-in-five Americans (18%) now say Obama is a Muslim, up from 11% in March 2009. Only about one-third of adults (34%) say Obama is a Christian, down sharply from 48% in 2009. Fully 43% say they do not know what Obama’s religion is. The survey was completed in early August, before Obama’s recent comments about the proposed construction of a mosque near the site of the former World Trade Center.

Meanwhile the Government denies the reconstruction of a Greek Christian Orthodox Church that was destroyed during the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11. Now how could a growing number of Americans possibly think this way about Obama?:


"Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation."

"What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith..." --in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos

"As a student of history, I also know civilization's debt to Islam."

"...I will stand with them [Muslims and Arabic Immigrants] should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." - The Audacity of Hope p. 261

“Therefore, the Bible isn’t common ground for all Americans.”

"Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism - it is an important part of promoting peace."

"The Holy Koran tells us, "O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another."

Compare that to the quotes from prominent leaders in our American history:

John Quincy Adams (6th President of the United States):

“The greatest glory of the American Revolution was this: It connected in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity."

Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story (served from 1812 to 1845):

“I verily believe that Christianity is necessary to the support of civil society. One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the Common Law. There never has been a period in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying its foundations.”

Supreme Court Justice David Brewer (served from 1890 to 1910):

“This is a religious people. This is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation … We find everywhere a clear recognition of the same truth … These, and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.“

Extreme Weather - Not All Pointing to Warming

Flooding in China, widespread wildfires in Russia, record below normal temps in California, earthquakes in Iran and Turkey, increased global volcanic activity - these aren't signs of a humanistic pattern of 'industrialist man' finally collapsing nature. After all, today we have the cleanest manufacturing, milling, processing, and energy producing plants than man has ever seen before. Is it past management that has finally 'caught up to nature' that we are now seeing the end results of? No, what we see today are signs of another human catastrophe.

Let's go back to ancient times. There was a happy little set of towns southeast of what is now known as the Dead Sea. Archeologists found that the ruins here were incinerated by a massive fire. Geologist speculate that a fault line positioned directly below the two towns had something to do with the event. They add that a petroleum based bitumen deposit ignited as it tore through the fault line during an eruption resulting in the raining down of fire.

The event is historically recorded in Genesis Chapters 18-19. The towns names were Sodom and Gomorrah. Several books in the New Testament corroborate this event:

"And the LORD said, "The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave. "I will go down now, and see if they have done entirely according to its outcry, which has come to Me; and if not, I will know." Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, while Abraham was still standing before the LORD. Abraham came near and said, "Will You indeed sweep away the righteous with the wicked?" - Genesis 18:20-23

"Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening as Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. And he said, "Now behold, my lords, please turn aside into your servant's house, and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way." They said however, "No, but we shall spend the night in the square." Yet he urged them strongly, so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he prepared a feast for them, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old, all the people from every quarter; and they called to Lot and said to him, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have relations with them." But Lot went out to them at the doorway, and shut the door behind him, and said, "Please, my brothers, do not act wickedly."

" . . . A son-in-law, and your sons, and your daughters, and whomever you have in the city, bring them out of the place; for we are about to destroy this place, because their outcry has become so great before the LORD that the LORD has sent us to destroy it." Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were to marry his daughters, and said, "Up, get out of this place, for the LORD will destroy the city " But he appeared to his sons-in-law to be jesting. When morning dawned, the angels urged Lot, saying, "Up, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away in the punishment of the city." But he hesitated. So the men seized his hand and the hand of his wife and the hands of his two daughters, for the compassion of the LORD was upon him; and they brought him out, and put him outside the city. When they had brought them outside, one said, "Escape for your life! Do not look behind you, and do not stay anywhere in the valley; escape to the mountains, or you will be swept away."

" . . . The sun had risen over the earth when Lot came to Zoar. Then the LORD rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven, and He overthrew those cities, and all the valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. But his wife, from behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. Now Abraham arose early in the morning and went to the place where he had stood before the LORD; and he looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the valley, and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land ascended like the smoke of a furnace. Thus it came about, when God destroyed the cities of the valley, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot lived." - Genesis 19

"As Sodom and Gomorrha, and the neighbouring cities, in like manner, having given themselves to fornication, and going after other flesh, were made an example, suffering the punishment of eternal fire." - Jude 1:7

"And reducing the cities of the Sodomites, and of the Gomorrhites, into ashes, condemned them to be overthrown, making them an example to those that should after act wickedly." - 2 Peter 2:6

"dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus." - 2 Thess 1:8

"But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men." - 2 Peter 3:7

""Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;" - Matt 25:41

So as history proves, science and archeologists testify, entire towns and communities were laid waste - especially those towns in which the most grievous acts against nature and God were committed. A sin against nature isn't killing a United States Federal Government listed threatened and endangered species under the Endangered Species Act. No, the sin of Sodom is where we get our word today for sodomy. So as we can see, there is real danger in a California judge overturning the will of voters in this state. In fact, Americans know that a grievous act against nature (against basic ABC's and 123's of biology - again not talking here about the federally listed vascular, nonvascular special status plant species placed on a list by a bureaucrats - but rather, namely about homosexual acts) is a shaking of the fist at the heavens and taunting God for punishment. Or at least just wrong. This is why all 30 states that put the question to a ballot unanimously voted for NATURAL MARRIAGE and NOT same sex marriage.

A media reporting about 'unprecedented' increased volcanic activity, temperature drops and rises, earthquakes, flooding, etc. should hold their tongue before blaming SUV's and before campaigning for their favorite environmentalist dictator politician, take a short look back to history and see how and where similar events occurred that wiped out entire towns. Were the devastating St. Stephen's Day tsunami in 2005 killing 200,000 men, women, and children an occurrence that is normal everyday events? This after all, happened in the hub of the slave sex center of the globe and the platform for major radical Islamic persecutions against Sri Lankan Christians. But we can easily gloss over that and report instead on American Idol candidates and the pointless and wheel spinning Lost episodes. By the way, did they name the show Lost to describe what they would do to the audience? The media will push homosexuality down our throats and peddle shows to keep us in the darkness of error and away from the finding truth and God's heavenly desire for mankind.

Scientific Study Finds that Religion is Good for Kids

A Mississippi State University study made the following conclusion in a
Live Science article:

"Kids with religious parents are better behaved and adjusted than other children, according to a new study that is the first to look at the effects of religion on young child development."

An Explanation of the Latin Mass: EWTN Broadcast of the Consecration of Ss. Peter & Paul, F.S.S.P

We're reminded in this broadcast that Pope Benedict instructs the faithful concerning our disposition to the liturgy:

"It's really not primarily important that people understand in the sacred liturgy each and every word or phrase, but rather that they experience the devotion and reverence . . . and it's also true that the latin reminds us that we don't approach God even in language in a purely casual or everyday way. That when we come into His presence it has to be a communication filtered as it were, through the lens of reverence and devotion, and that it's not because the Mass is primarily about communicating bits of information. The Mass is not a lesson, it's not a class, it's not a news bulletin. It is the representation upon the altar of the Sacrifice of Cavalry."
