Do my ears deceive me? Did Bill Maher really say something worth hearing? I do believe he did. Maher said he “doesn’t believe” Obama’s claim that he’s a Christian. He rightly points out that Obama is “pretending” to be a Christian for political gain.
While I rarely talk about religion, much less question people’s faith, the fact is, people know a phony when they see one — even Maher, apparently. Obama was indeed raised by a “secular humanist” and deeply admired her views.
Once you do the homework (i.e. read Dinesh D’Souza’a The Roots of Obama’s Rage, for example) and study Obama closely, it’s clear Obama’s no Christian. It’s not what he says or doesn’t say; it’s what he does and doesn’t do. That’s okay that he’s not a Christian — but it’s disingenuous for him to claim that he is.
If Bill Maher can see that, anyone can.
