Venting to the World

Is Obama really religious?

This link from YouTube was posted on the Beltway Atheists meetup site.  Take a look:

In this video you can see that Obama is very respectful of other people’s beliefs, and is for separation of Church and State (as it should be), but I have a feeling that it goes beyond that: I think Obama has doubts. I think Obama is a closeted agnostic. I think his “God bless you” and other (few) references to god are a political move. I also think Bill Clinton is not very religious either.  It is gut feeling. If I am right, I am even more pleased Obama will be our president. Having someone so open minded and with a questioning mind in office, promoting Scientific advances, will be good for all. Obama is not the kind of person who will persecute this or that religious group, or any segment of society for that matter. I also think he really IS for gay marriage. Obama is a modern man. He was raised in a non-typical household. He learned tolerance. But he could not come out and say he is for gay marriage because many close minded folks would simply not vote for him.

So there you go.

  1. Obama has said in the past that he walked into church with doubts.

    “By definition, faith admits doubt”

  2. And if he has doubts, it means he can come to the conclusion that there is no god, which he may even have already 🙂
