As we all know by now, your average Republican right-winger despises any display on President Obama’s part of his Christian beliefs.
The wingnuts would so much prefer that Obama was a Muslim. Indeed, some of them even remain convinced that he is.
For the looneys, the problem with Obama’s Christianity is that it makes it more difficult to cast him as the dreaded Other, the frighteningly exotic mixed-race alien whose belief system is somehow different from that of your average American.
It’s no surprise, then, that Sen. Orrin Hatch, the Utah Republican, expressed UMBRAGE the other day at Obama’s scriptural references in his address at the National Prayer Breakfast.
Obama just can’t win with these people. When they’re not falsely complaining that he’s insufficiently religious, they’re complaining that he’s too religious or that he has a messianic complex.
If I were him, I would tell them all to go to hell. But he’s too much of a Christian to do that.
