Fox Nation promotes Coulter's claim that Obama is an atheist

Blog ››› ››› SOLANGE UWIMANA

Fox Nation, which has not been shy about obscuring President Obama's faith, tonight displayed the following headline on its website: "Obama is not Muslim, but..."

The headline linked to a column by Ann Coulter titled, "Obama is not a Muslim." This is the same Coulter who repeatedly promoted the lie -- three years after it had been debunked by numerous news organizations (Fox included) -- that Obama attended a madrassa as a child in Indonesia, and who has relentlessly smeared Islam and Muslims.

In her column, Coulter argues that the "nonsense" about Obama being a Muslim "has got to stop" because Obama "is obviously an atheist." She goes on to write that while Obama has professed to be a Christian, the "only evidence" is that he attended Rev. Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years -- which "is even stronger evidence of nonbelief than Bill Clinton returning from Sunday services to receive oral sex from Monica Lewinsky." She concludes by writing that "[a]ll liberals are atheists," adding, "There's only one true Christian liberal in the country and that's Mike Huckabee."

From Coulter's September 1 column:

The nonsense about President Obama being a Muslim has got to stop. I rise to defend him from this absurd accusation by pointing out that he is obviously an atheist.

Leave aside Obama's fanatical opposition to allowing Illinois hospitals to save the lives of babies with God-given souls inadvertently born alive during abortions. Also leave aside the fact that neither of his parents were Christians. And leave aside his current crop of "spiritual advisers," which is a collection of Mother Earth worshippers, polytheists and other nonbelievers.

Now rest from all that "leaving aside."

The only evidence for Obama's Christianity is that he faithfully attended the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years.

Yes, the guy bellowing "God damn America!" is the one vouching for Obama's Christianity. That's like saying you got sober with the help of your A.A. sponsor Lindsay Lohan.

It is a fact that any non-retarded person (thank you, Rahm Emanuel!) sitting in the Rev. Wright's church for 20 minutes, much less 20 years, does not believe in God. Even stepping inside Wright's church for a moment to get out of the rain is borderline racist.

Going to Trinity United Church of Christ is even stronger evidence of nonbelief than Bill Clinton returning from Sunday services to receive oral sex from Monica Lewinsky. This isn't mere sin -- everybody sins (though some with more frequency and less remorse than others).

Attending Wright's church is the conscious, calculated decision to immerse yourself in hate-filled demagoguery and call it "Christianity."
