Is Obama Christian? Walker Responds

As usual, Walker is right and is making a good point, but the lefty media is trying to make it look like Walker is questioning Obama’s religion or something.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a prospective Republican presidential contender, said Saturday he does not know whether President Obama is a Christian.

“I don’t know,” Walker said in an interview at the JW Marriott hotel in Washington, where he was attending the winter meeting of the National Governors Association.

Told that Obama has frequently spoken publicly about his Christian faith, Walker maintained that he was not aware of the president’s religion.

“I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that,” Walker said, his voice calm and firm. “I’ve never asked him that,” he added. “You’ve asked me to make statements about people that I haven’t had a conversation with about that. How [could] I say if I know either of you are a Christian?”

Walker said such questions from reporters are reflective of a broader problem in the nation’s political-media culture, which he described as fixated on issues that are not relevant to most Americans.

 On what planet is it relevant to anyone whether or not Walker thinks Obama is a Christian or not? This is crap journalism – if you can call it that.

“To me this is a classic example of why people hate Washington and increasingly they dislike the press,” he said. “The things they care about don’t even remotely come close to what you’re asking about.”

Walker said he did not believe that most Americans care about such matters.“People in the media will [judge], not everyday people,” he said. “I would defy you to come to Wisconsin. You could ask 100 people, and not one of them would say that this is a significant issue.”

    Apparently he’s never read some of the tripe that Kevin or Dadette spew:)

    Walker gave a great answer.


    If asked, this is the answer I would give:

    Christians can be recognized by their faith (fruits) in action (Matthew 7:16-20; John 15:5).

    Obama certainly raises concerns about his Christianity in action when it comes to:

    Romans 12:9 “….Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.”

    Romans 14:16 “Therefore do not let what you know is good be spoken of as evil.”

    When one cannot even use the word “evil” or “terrorist” for those executing fellow Christians to describe ISIS, that is a huge issue.

    His reversal on his stance of marriage under God’s design, one man, one woman, also calls his Christianity in practice in question.

    His support of abortion is also not “clinging to what is good”.

  3. Dave

    The pope’s tolerance of gays must call his Christianity into question as well. I imagine the doctrine of the one true church just happens to be what you believe Kevin.

    How statesman like

    To quote our host,

    “On what planet is it relevant to anyone whether or not Walker thinks Obama is a Christian or not?”

    You can insert replace “Walker” with “Kev” if you like, I know I would:)

    Ahhh….Scripture. Gotta love it:)

    “those who are pure in their own eyes and yet are not cleansed of their filth;”

    While not a Scriptural quote one of my favorites:)))

    “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition”

  5. Kevin scheunemann

    To those outside of the church (disciples of Christ) he appears to take a correct biblical stand.

    For those inside of the church, to take a position those disciples can openly embrace sin and at same time grow their faith and grow closer to Christ would be false doctrine.

    Telling those inside the church that embracing sinful behavior as something good goes against the New Testament in several books. 1&2 Timothy being most obvious example.

  6. Kevin scheunemann


    Agree Proverbs 30:12 is always a warning for believers, but it is not mandate for cowardice for speaking up against Islamic evil like ISIS.

  7. Mark Maley

    Does it really matter who does and doesn’t believe in magic ?

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    Yes it does matter who is Christian, or not.

    How else will liberals know who’s speech to review, sort and censor?

  9. Mark Maley

    I’m all for magic schools .

    I just don’t want anyone’s version of magic taught in the schools My taxes support .

    Saying there is a war on Christianity is like saying there is a war on the Packers in Wisc

    There is just no there , there .

  10. Kevin Scheunemann


    So this at bottom of my public offical email would be just fine? (since there is no “there, there”.)

    “A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps.”

  11. Mark Maley

    Simple = Grant
    Prudent = McClelland

    Both can be virtues or vices

  12. Kevin scheunemann


    So Ok to use quote at bottom of my elected official email?

    You avoided the question.

  13. Mark Maley

    its fine

    Be prudent and stop putting people into them vs us boxes .

    I’m right , you’re wrong

    That’s the part of the magic show that I like the least

  14. Boyd McBoyd

    Good news! Google Translate has a drunk-to-English convertor so you understand the previous post.

  15. Dave

    Boyd, Explains why your sentence is understandable. Share the link with Kevin, will you?

    I’d suggest a quote on your stationery that is not intended to stir up religious issues since our government is a secular one at all levels.
    “The Government of the United States is not in any sense founded upon the Christian Religion.” – John Adams
    “The civil government … functions with complete success … by the total separation of the Church from the State.” – James Madison

    Maybe this quote ought to be on your stationery…it is secular and worth remembering.
    “Each day you are leading by example. Whether you realize it or not or whether it’s positive or negative, you are influencing those around you.”
    ― Rob Liano

  16. Boyd McBoyd

    Oddly enough, your post doesn’t come up correctly, as there isn’t a dumbfuck liar to English translator.

  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    The problem is: just what is “secular speech” in an elected official email?

    There are many Psalms and Proverbs in the bible that are everyday great wisdom. So is all subject matter addresed by Psalms and Proverbs banned from being spoken by public officials because they are in bible? Does that wisdom cross the threshold of not being secular?

    When do the many, many subjects in the bible, talked about everyday by politicians become non-secular, thus “verboten” in the liberal lexicon?

    Is it just Jesus you want to ban?

    What about wisdom imparted in parables told by Jesus? Banned? Yes? No?

    You and Mark are very evasive about what exactly can and cannot be said under the guise of the “religion” label you slap on speech you do not like.

    I’m just trying to get clear on how far your speech censorship/suppression efforts really go when it comes to Christians in public office.

  18. Mark Maley


    No one is censoring you . This argument is as fake as the” war on Christmas ”

    Live the beatitudes and you will always my vote

    Talk about What a great Christian you are and you won’t

  19. Mark Maley


    No one is censoring you . This argument is as fake as the” war on Christmas ”

    Live the beatitudes and you will always get my vote

    Talk about What a great Christian you are and you won’t

  20. Boyd McBoyd

    Hey rummy – just because you’re blitzed enough to see double, you only need to hit one of the post comment buttons you see.

  21. Kevin Scheunemann


    That sounds great, but unfortunately, your free speech absolutism is not a widely held position.

    Have you been reading Dave or Scott?

    They openly stand ready to censor any whiff of what they determine to be this nebulous and vague “non-secular speech” standard by anyone in government.

    Personally, I think they are afraid to clearly define what “non-secular speech” is, (for the public “shut-up” label) for fear it will encompass religions they may like, and practiced in the government sphere, such as evolution or global warming.
