Is the President a Christian, a Muslim, or something else?


The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch runs a regular feature in its newspaper identifying an important issue to the local community and asking the vote of the readers on that issue along with any comments they may have. Occasionally I will respond and comment on the issue raised, as I did in regard to last Friday’s topic.



The Hot Issue, Friday, August 20, 2010:


Does religious affiliation affect how a president does his job?


My Response:


Yes, absolutely, what matters is a person’s core belief system, worldview, and the philosophical orientation.
Frankly, we do not know what this president’s religious affiliation is. He said, for political expediency, that he is a Christian. He says for purposes of appeasement and acceptance when in front of Muslims, that he has a close and positive appreciation of Islam. Actually, I believe he is neither. He is an atheist, a secular humanist. That is his true religious belief or affiliation.

What I have observed of this president is that he is prone to avoid the truth in almost all situations. Why would a Christian or Muslim support abortion or the homosexual agenda? A secular humanist does grasp those positions. Why would a Christian violate the biblical principle of enslaving his nation into debt? A secular humanist would agree with the Keynesian economic principles more than supply-side economics.

Almost all of the initiatives put forth by the president prior to his election and since point to a fundamentally socialistic, Marxist or communistic orientation or set of principles and beliefs that seem to govern all of his policies, legislative initiatives and actions.
