Did you know that you were mistaken?

Apparently the media knows that you and I are mistaken (and a lot of other Americans must be too). Or why else would they keep repeating their allegation that many Americans are 'mistaken' about Barack Obama's faith and wrongly believe him to be a Muslim.

I don't know....maybe it's just me. Maybe it's because he was born to a Muslim father, was raised by a practicing Muslim mother and step father and attended Muslim schools in Indonesia during his formative years.

Then again? Maybe it's because he has publicly stated that the Muslim call to prayer is one of the most beautiful sounds that he has ever heard. Or maybe it's because that he knows the Koranic verse and can recite it from memory. Or maybe it is because he has referred to himself as: “I was a little Jakarta street kid,” When reminiscing about his youth.

The really ludicrous part? Is when they attempt to assert that Obama is just a 'mainstream Christian."

So someone tell me again? Just who is sadly mistaken when it comes to this man's professed and practiced religion......Is it us? Or is it the media?

President Barack Obama is getting more public about his Christianity.

First he raised his Christian faith at a White House news conference this month. Then he went church for the first time in five months. And on Tuesday he responded to a question with an expansive talk about how he chose Christianity, how Jesus Christ influences his life and how he prays every day.

These public displays of his religion mark a change from the first year and a half of his presidency, when he kept his faith a largely private matter — and they come after a poll found a growing number of Americans mistakenly think he's a Muslim, or don't know his religion.
