“And I went over to Trinity on 95th Street on the Southside and I heard a sermon about hope and faith and the love of Jesus Christ. During the course of the sermon I was introduced to Jesus in a way that I had not been introduced before. And I learned my sins could be redeemed if I placed my trust in him. That he could set me on the path of eternal life. It was because of these newfound understandings that I was finally able to walk down the isle one day and get baptized. I have to say, I didn’t fall out in church, it didn’t come as an epiphany. It was a gradual process, all the questions and the doubts and the pain that I sometimes felt didn’t magically disappear. The skeptical bent of my mind didn’t suddenly vanish. But kneeling beneath the cross I heard God’s spirit beckoning me. I submitted myself to his will and I dedicated myself to discovering His truth and carrying out His works.”
It simply amazes me that, despite mountains of evidence to the contrary, people, particularly those on the right, continue to believe the President is a Muslim. What’s even more frightening is that the number of Republicans that believe this absurdity is growing.
I wonder how those 34% of American Republicans who believe and spread this rumor feel about the fact that they will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven (see 1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
