Tony Perkins: Obama Is Not A Christian But 'Overly Sympathetic' To Islam

On “Washington Watch” last week, two callers demanded that Family Research Council President Tony Perkins discuss President Obama’s “Muslim ring,” a fictional invention of WorldNetDaily.

Perkins said that while he didn’t know about the Muslim ring (maybe because it doesn’t exist), he said he does know for sure that Obama is not a Christian and is “overly sympathetic” to “the Muslim world”: “The president has said he’s a Christian and I don’t think there’s the fruit there that he’s a follower of Christ from the standpoint of its evident in his actions and policy, I don’t see it. But I don’t see that he’s a Muslim. He had that influence as a child, I would say that he is extremely sympathetic to the Muslim world and overly sympathetic I would say.”

“His actions have not been in the best interest of the security of the United States, there’s no question about that,” he said. “What’s his motivation? I don’t know. But his actions are not in the best interest of America, that I know.”
