    Think Progress: Obama Should Not Have To “Bible Thump on C-SPAN”

    Think Progress: Obama Should Not Have To “Bible Thump on C-SPAN”

    Amanda Terkel, one of the lead writers at Think Progress, is exasperated that the “right-wing” has convinced the “media” that Obama’s religion is open to question (emphasis mine):

    While journalists and pundits on cable news today did acknowledge the “media” have had a role to play, they also seemed to place some of the blame on Obama and his staff, saying that perhaps the President should go to church more frequently and more openly to show the public that he truly is Christian….First of all, Obama should not have to be bible-thumping on C-SPAN every Sunday in order to prove how Christian he is. Second of all, the poll leaves out a very important source of this misinformation: the irresponsible right wing.

    What we have here really is a failure to communicate.  The image-keepers at Think Progress and at the White House do not seem to understand that Obama’s failure to connect has nothing to do with bible-thumping on C-SPAN or not.

    No one really knows who Obama is, because almost everything we know about Obama prior to his entering public life comes from Obama alone.

    Obama has so carefully controlled his image that he has achieved the opposite effect.

    oh, and to top it off the BLOG states that his scholastic performance improved as soon as he laid off the drugs!

    A liberal friend of mine was all excited when GW first got in the white house because of a photoshopped picture of W holding a bong. boy, did his view change!

    George –

    Your link to yields a short little guesstimate about what Obama's grades "may have been" (although to be fair it notes he graduated Harvard Law school "magna cum laude"). Even so, THERE ARE NO GRADES AVAILABLE. The only history we have of this man is what he tells us himself. No "old drinking buddies" have surfaced; no former girlfriends; students in the classes he apparently attended don't remember him.

    He has been nicknamed "President Zero" for a reason: he's a cipher.

    This continuing drivel over Obama's religion, or lack thereof, is pathetic. Don't these people have anything important to worry about?

    We old farts remember the shock and dismay over John Kennedy's Catholicism. "Will his loyalty be to the nation or to the Pope?" It went on and on. He even had to come out and assure everyone he was "OK" in spite of being a Catholic. I mean, not only was Kennedy not a "real" Christian, but he was a Papist to boot.

    What are these characters going to do if Mitt Romney gets the GOP nomination? Are Mormons "real Christians"? Not by the lights of self-styled "Christians". They are heretics, what with those golden tablets and all.

    Let's see … some of our GOP'ers want to repeal the 14th Amendment. Some of them want to amend the amendment. While we're at it, why don't they see about doing away with Article VI section 3:

    The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

    That really does get in the way of this being a "Christian" nation, doesn't it?

    Find something important to worry about. Obama's religion or lack thereof ain't it.

    If you don't get it, please watch this:

    Cat…..Christianity does NOT advocate strapping yourself with explosives to kill the "infidels". Christianity has everything to do with loving your enemy. If I were to come across anyone..ANYONE…in need my Christian faith allows me to assist. Personally I could care less what "flavor" his religion is but I cannot respect someone who goes to such pains to hide his past. I know it is cheesy but you have to stand for something or you will fall for anything.
    PS….I'm a hard-core conservative but I sure love me some kitties!

    Islam does NOT advocate strapping yourself with explosives to kill the "infidels" either. There's nut-jobs in every faith, thanks for playing. Cat's right, Obama's faith is a non-issue.
