I will contend that our president is a Christian.
My opponent will contend otherwise.

From the below links clearly Barrack Obama claims he is a Christian and thus I conclude he is Christian.


"in the days before the South Carolina primary, he is driving efforts to speaking with media to emphasize his Christian beliefs. His campaign also sent out a recent mailer portraying the candidate with his head bowed in prayer and says that he will be guided by prayer when he is in office." [0]

Obama's father was not a Muslim.


"1) Obama's father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., was a "radical Muslim who migrated from Kenya to Jakarta, Indonesia."

FALSE. Obama, Sr. wasn't a Muslim at all except during early childhood, let alone a "radical" Muslim." [2]

"Although the elder Obama was raised as a Muslim, no evidence supports the claim that he was ever a "radical Muslim," and Senator Obama's family histories note that his father was an atheist or agnostic (i.e., no longer a practicing Muslim) by the time he married the younger Obama's mother. Of his mother's religious views, Senator Obama wrote:
For my mother, organized religion too often dressed up closed-mindedness in the garb of piety, cruelty and oppression in the cloak of righteousness. " [3]

Obama's father was an Atheist.
