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.“
