Eighteen percent of Americans inexplicably think that President Barack Obama is Jewish, according to a new poll.
A survey commissioned by the Associated Press and conducted by GfK asked respondents to identify Obama’s religion from a list of possibilities. Thirty five percent said Obama had no religion, 28 percent correctly identified Obama as a protestant Christian, another 28 percent declined to answer, 18 percent said he was Jewish, 10 percent said he was Muslim and five percent said he was Catholic.
As a sidebar question. By what means are you correlating the 28% that declined to answer with
the 18% who think he is Jewish? What does one have to do with the other? To be honest I probably would have declined to answer such a stupid question
myself, seeing how it is completely irrelevant to the current state of the U.S.
The Separation Of Church and State The phrase "separation of church and state" does not appear anywhere in the Constitution. Thomas Jefferson wrote that the 1st Amendment erected a "wall of separation" between the church and the state (James Madison said it "drew a line," but it is Jefferson's term that sticks with us today). The phrase is commonly thought to mean that the government should not establish, support, or otherwise involve itself in any religion. The Religion Topic Page addresses this issue in much greater detail. Thanks to Pat Roche for the idea.

Who cares if he is Muslim? If he is capable of fixing this country and you won't let him because he doesn't meet your spiritual standards, you are ALL idiots.
I certainly won't turn down help just because my rescuer wipes with his left hand and not his right.
