Is Barack Obama a Muslim?

Smear emails with false information began circulating early, and many people have already been misinformed about Barack Obama's religious beliefs. Many allege that Barack Obama tries to hide the fact that he's a Muslim. Some claim that he took the oath of office on the Koran and not the Bible. Others insist that he would not pledge allegiance to the flag.


On live television Brian Williams asked Obama about these allegations. Obama answerd these allegations directly:

"Let's make clear what the facts are. I am a Christian. I have been sworn in with a Bible. I pledge alegiance and lead the Pledge of Allegiance sometimes in the United States Senate when I am presiding... In the internet age, there are going to be lies that are spread all over the place. I have been victimized by these lies. Fortunately the American people are I think smarter than folks give them credit for. "

Barack Obama is a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ, the largest congregation in the United Church of Christ.
