24% Think Obama is a Muslim

Time Mag has a survey on how Americans are feeling these days toward their Muslim neighbors:
Opponents of the planned Islamic community center and mosque near Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan have public opinion firmly in their corner. According to a new TIME poll, 61% of respondents oppose the construction of the Park51/Cordoba House project, compared to 26% who support it. More than 70% concur with the premise that proceeding with the plan would be an insult to the victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center. Opposition to the project appears to derive largely from the conviction that the proposed site of the project — just two blocks from Ground Zero, in a building that formerly housed a Burlington Coat Factory outlet — is so close to "hallowed ground," as President Obama put it.

Yet the survey also revealed that many Americans harbor lingering animosity toward Muslims. Twenty-eight percent of voters do not believe Muslims should be eligible to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. Nearly one third of the country thinks adherents of Islam should be barred from running for President — slightly higher than the 24% who mistakenly believe that the current occupant of the Oval Office is himself a Muslim. In all, just 47% of respondents believe Obama is a Christian; 24% declined to respond to the question or said they were unsure, and 5% believe he is neither Christian nor Muslim.
Muslims aren't doing themselves any public relations favors these days. The Ground Zero Mosque is angering a great number of Americans, and local stories like the Muslim Disney employee that thinks the Constitution gives her the right to wear a hijab to work are doing significant damage to their standing in the eyes of non-Muslim America. If you had seen this woman's self-righteous news conference you could quickly understand why public sentiment is turning against Muslims.

As far as those who think Obama is a Muslim, I'll just refer to an Egyptian Coptic Christian doctor that I know.  He grew up in Egypt surrounded by Muslims and has said that without a doubt Obama is at heart a Muslim.  Barry may have attended the nutty Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Christian church for 22 years, but as the old saying goes:
Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than going to your garage makes you a car.
Deeds say more than words:
