Ok everyone, calm down. Obama isn't a Muslim
It's quite simple. Obama belongs to the same religion as his colleagues in the political world. The same as Mrs. Pelosi, Mr. Biden and Mr. Kerry. The same as his European counterparts Dave Cameron, Sarkiozy and Merkel. The same, in fact, as most Catholic bishops of the United States, Canada, England and Wales, Belgium, Austria, Germany, France and Scandanavia. As most "Catholic" journalists and nearly every journalist on the "religion" beat. As the entire editorial staff of National Catholic Reporter, the Tablet and America, and probably about half of the staff of L'Osservatore Romano (all to varying degrees of faithfulness and fervency, of course).
Is there a name for it? Modernism, springs to mind. Narcissism, perhaps...
