Barton: Obama is a "Christian Atheist"
We have said it before, but it bears repeating: for the Religious Right, attacks on a political figure's faith is an act of unmitigated anti-Christian bigotry ... unless that candidate is President Obama.
And then trend continued today on "Wallbuilders Live" where David Barton proclaimed that even thought President Obama may call himself a Christian, he is really just a "Christian Atheist":
The President, you know he's gone to church to twenty years in Chicago but he's really secular.
A Christian Deist is someone who wears the label "Christian" but they really act and live as if God doesn't really get involved in affairs and He's not really close. And I would even call them Christian Atheists. They're Christians by label but they really act like God's not alive.
I've got a lot of folks I can point to who are Christian Deists or Atheists and I'd put the President in there as one of them. He's more secularist but he'll tell you he's a Christian. He gets offended if you say he's not and he's always challenged anyone who claims he was a Muslim, not a Christian. Great, alright, but you're a Christian Atheist, you're a Christian Deist.
So it's really a distinction on how pious you are.
