Franklin Graham Says President Obama was 'Born a Muslim'
On the heels of a new poll suggesting that nearly one in five Americans incorrectly believes that President Obama is a Muslim, one of the nation's most prominent evangelical leaders has weighed in with a seemingly lukewarm endorsement of the president's Christian faith.
The Rev. Franklin Graham waded into the discussion with his own controversial explanation of why people wrongly believe the president is a Muslim. Graham, who prayed with Obama in a session with his father, Billy Graham, earlier this year, was asked whether he has any doubts about Obama's self-avowed Christian faith.
"I think the president's problem is that he was born a Muslim, his father was a Muslim. The seed of Islam is passed through the father like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother. He was born a Muslim, his father gave him an Islamic name," Graham told CNN's John King in a televised interview that aired...
I agree with another poster on this site who labeled Obama a Syncretist, picking and choosing what he likes from all religions whenever it suits his prevailing social agenda.
Not sure but I think Mahatma Ghandi did the same thing, claiming to be Muslim, Christian, and Jewish, as well as Hindu in order to quell religious divisions in hopes of unifying India against British rule.

Well Obama never attends Mosque and did not take the oath of office on the Koran but instead took it on the Bible. And it is documented that Obama converted from Islam to the United Church Of Christ as an adult. And Obama attends church from time to time. But you are correct that Obama is a Muslim, a Non Practicing Muslim.
Graham is correct that Obama was born a Muslim. But Obama gave up Islam when he converted to the United Church Of Christ as an adult. Obama's old lady was nuts to marry a black man and a Muslim on top of that. But Obama's old lady was an agnostic.
