Skip to comments.Why couldn't Scott Walker agree that President Obama is a Christian?

"....In Walker's defense, Tim Graham of the Media Research Center (Exposing and Combating Liberal Media Bias) offers this exegesis: Walker, the son of a Protestant minister, hears the question very differently: asking if someone is a Christian is a very personal question, asking whether someone has committed themselves to Jesus in their heart. Its like asking if he knows how often Obama prays. His reluctance to answer for someone he doesnt know is not a No. "
Nice try, but the political context of the question was clear and its the one Milbank mentioned: the conviction that Obama is a Muslim from Kenya......
Based on the public record, Walker should have been able to affirm personally what his spokeswoman did: that Obama identifies as a Christian -- and not just a "social justice" liberal Christian. In an interview with Christianity Today in 2008, Obama said that accepting Jesus Christ in my life has been a powerful guide for my conduct and my values and my ideals........

Clear to whom? This is clearly dog whistling by the lap dogs in the MSM!
Re: the Milbank's hit column in the Washington Post today: Scott Walkers insidious agnosticism [FR post] "This is insidious, and goes beyond last weeks questioning of Obamas patriotism, because it allows Walker to wink and nod at the far-right fringe where people really believe that Obama is a Muslim from Kenya who hates America.........."
Keeping with the "Kenyan" theme they're pulling out of thin air:
How unhinged has Howard Dean become? So bad that an MSNBC host had to gently walk him back off the ledge.
On Chris Hayes MSNBC show tonight, Dean claimed that Scott Walker says Barack Obama was born in Kenya. It took Hayes two attempts to break through Deans blather, but eventually he was able to politely point out: I should note, you mention the Kenya thing, he has not been asked that............Howard Dean says Scott Walker said Obama was born in Kenya
Because there’s lack of evidence ?
Because Christians don’t go to Islamic schools when they are kids?
Why should Walker answer that question? Does he personally know Obama, has he asked Obama? Stupid media question. Best answer is “I don’t know, go ask Obama.” Does the media realize just how stupid this is? (Or, do they even care?)
Why is this such a great concern to the LA Times? They don’t think religion should be any part of public life, and certainly not any part of governance. Why all of a sudden is it important to them that a presidential candidate from the opposing political party believe that the current president is a Christian, even when that president has stated publically that he’s a moslem?
How about because there is no evidence and Obama’s word is worthless?
“I cannot answer that for the president or any person, how can I know their heart? However, as he was raised in a Muslim country, attended a Muslim school, and identifies himself as Muslim in his autobiography, claiming he is not a Muslim is sentencing him to death. How can you ask me to do that?”
Barack Obama was born to an agnostic mother, a muslim father, and later raised by a muslim stepfather, and his Unitarian grandparents.
He claims his Christian identity is more genuine than those who were raised Christian since he came to the faith as an adult.
And who brought him to Jesus? That hateful quack, Rev. Jeremiah Wright (a former muslim).
Barack has boasted of the prophet of Islam, Mohammed. A man who is nothing but a false prophet to a genuine Christian.
Barack has referred to ‘the holy koran’ but I’ve never heard him refer to the ‘holy Bible’. The koran is just another cultist’s text to a practicing Christian.
He has said that Jesus is a historical figure and not the only way to salvation.
Barack Obama has been exposed as a liar with regards to ‘same sex marriage’. He said that marriage was a sacred institution for a man and a woman. David Axelrod confessed that Obama lied to get Black Christians to vote for him.
From what I’ve seen today [post #1 above] the MSM has begun to coordinate to put out the lie that Scott Walker said Barack Obama is a Muslim from Kenya.
Remember, In the same exact breath that Obama declared he was a Christian he said that marriage was between a man and a woman and a sacred matter involving God.
“I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian it is also a sacred union. Gods in the mix.
Draw your own conclusions about whether Obama is a Christian.
Of course Obama is not a Christian. He’s a Marxist/fascist abortionist/homosexualist. Muslims wouldn’t claim him either.
Anyone that says he’s anything but a muslim is lying!
Name a Christian who believes that the Muslim call to prayer is the sweetest sound.
Name a Christian that would even inadvertently say, You are absolutely correct that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith.
Lots of evidence to the contrary. He is the devil’s spawn.
Next the enemedia will have us convinced that Hitler was a Christian too!
I believe today that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator.
[Adolph Hitler, _Mein Kampf_, pp. 46]
Even today I am not ashamed to say that, overpowered by stormy enthusiasm, I fell down on my knees and thanked Heaven from an overflowing heart for granting me the good fortune of being permitted to live at this time.
[Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Vol. 1, Chapter 5]
The greatness of Christianity did not lie in attempted negotiations for compromise with any similar philosophical opinions in the ancient world, but in its inexorable fanaticism in preaching and fighting for its own doctrine.
[Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf Vol. 1 Chapter 12]
Today Christians stand at the head of [this country] I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity .. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theater, and in the press in short, we want to burn out the *poison of immorality* which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of *liberal excess* during the past (few) years.
[The Speeches of Adolph Hitler, 1922-1939, Vol. 1 (London, Oxford
University Press, 1942), pg. 871-872]
Ive never had a conversation with Walker about whether hes a cannibal, a eunuch, a sleeper cell for the Islamic State, a sufferer of irritable bowel syndrome or a grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. By Walkers logic, it would be fair for me to let stand the possibility that he just might be any of those simply because I have no personal and direct refutation from him.
Sen. Robert Byrd (D-KKK) was a kleegle in the Klan and it never bother Mr. Milbank. I don't know why he'd throw out such charges against political opponents now.
Can we repeat that one a little louder, so all the world's miscreants can hear it? :)
