Gov. Scott Walker: ‘I don’t know’ whether Obama is a Christian

February 21, 2015

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a prospective Republican presidential contender, said Saturday he does not know whether President Obama is a Christian.

“I don’t know,” Walker said in an interview at the JW Marriott hotel in Washington, where he was attending the winter meeting of the National Governors Association.

Told that Obama has frequently spoken publicly about his Christian faith, Walker maintained that he was not aware of the president’s religion.

    OH that’s OK Scott…. Neither does ODUMBO!!! He can Quote the QUORAN, as he says< but shows no CHRISTIAN ETHICS…So Does he know "WHO"S ON FIRST"??? or is he waiting for JEREMIAH to tell him???

  • I Seigel says:

    The Constitution requires the president to be a natural-born citizen. Too bad there’s no requirement of education or IQ. But there’s no requirement that the president has to be a Christian. So since everyone here is such a believer in the Constitution, why is this such a big deal?

  • bobgreen2009 says:

    And this is a story, how? Really, “I don’t know”?! That’s about as much of a non-answer as a person can give. They going to wrap a story around “no comment”, next? Wow.

  • David Stovall says:

    Was the question asked to obtain information about Obama being a Christian? OR was it a gotcha question. Only Obama can answer about his heart. So Walker answered correctly, he does not know,,. He really should have answered “That is a gotcha question , not for seeking information.”

  • Jack L. Feasel says:

    I do not understand how Scott Walker could not know. Most people that I know personally know that he has been influenced by Islam all his life and if you can’t tell it by his past history, just listen to his rhetoric. One would have to be asleep not to get it.

  • wright2665 says:

    The million dollar question. What religion does Obama belong to? The real question might be: which religion does Obama support and endorse? On an interview in 2008 he admitted he was a muslim before being corrected by the journalist who said “you mean Christian?”. He refuses to identify Islamic radical terrorism. Instead, he omits the word “muslim” in his apologetic responses. He is the most anti Israeli American president in history. In fact, on one occasion, rather than meeting with Netanyahu he chose to waste his time with “You Tube” geeks. He claimed he couldn’t schedule a meeting with Netanyahu but had time to meet with a woman who paints her lips green, bathes in milk – with “fruit loops” in her bath … after which she eats her fruit loops. Could it be that it is so offensive to a muslim to meet with the head of the Jewish state that he makes whatever excuses he can to spare him the affront? However, he had no problem bowing to the Saudi King during his first term. He also was able to make time to have a “secret” meeting in the White House with “Muslim” American notables. He has clear ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization, and ties to Turkey (who is playing both sides concerning ISIS – granting them free passage and actually waving to them) and is clearly on record – again and again stating that if Islam came under attack via the west … he would stand with Islam. He was raised in Indonesia where his step father was a Muslim. No. Scott Walker did the politically expedient thing. He stated he did not know what religion Obama espouses. For those of us not running for office and being attacked by the “leftist” American press … we do know the truth about our “president”.

  • I Seigel says:

    Scott Walker doesn’t seem to know much about a lot of things. He’s not a scientist, so he doesn’t know anything about climate change. He “didn’t know” if Obama was a citizen. Now he “doesn’t know” if Obama is a Christian. He’s also not a financial expert, so he “doesn’t know” if any if his tax-cutting policies are going to help or hurt the university system in Wisconsin. And he’s not a labor expert, so he “doesn’t know” about union issues. Why is it that people continue to elect candidates who are, really, quite unknowledgeable about the subjects they’re expected to lead on?

  • ARJAY says:

    The CORRECT answer IS:
    I do NOT know obama’s HEART, but I can tell by the FRUITS of his ACTIONS (labor), (and that is a BIBLICAL supported “judgement”, the fruit of their labor) that I have SERIOUS doubts about him being a CHRISTIAN!!

    A TRUE Christian would NOT FORCE Christians to go against their Christian BELIEFS!! Such as CONDONING/SUPPORTING HOMOSEXUAL “MARRIAGE” or even homosexual CIVIL UNIONS!

    WE can NOT judge ANYBODY’S heart-that belongs to God Himself-but, WE CAN JUDGE BY THE FRUITS of their labors, IF they APPEAR to be Christian, or NOT!!

    Besides, in ANY conflict, oblamo said that he would take the MUSLIME side!!

    1. I Seigel says:

      How wrong you are! A TRUE Christian would not let his religion dictate how he governs. Since he has sworn to uphold the laws of the land, he should do so, regardless of his religious convictions. ALL judges are supposed to rule similarly. If you want otherwise, perhaps you should consider moving to Iran. This is a SECULAR country. Have you ever heard of the concept of a separation between church and state?

      1. ARJAY says:

        “Separation of church and state” is NOT in the Constitution. The 1st Amendment protects us to PRACTICE OUR RELIGION WITHOUT COERCION FROM THE STATE! Forcing people to give up their Constitutional protections to SERVICE people in something that is “an abomination” to God the Creator , IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!!

        SO YOU are WRONG!!!!

        Read the Constitution and COMPREHEND WHAT IT ACTUALLY DOES SAY!!

        And that does include the BILL OF RIGHTS!

        1. I Seigel says:

          The florist – along with the pharmacist, teacher, beautician, etc – is licensed by the individual states. The federal government has nothing to do with it. The federal government does not, in these cases, make any laws that infringe upon one’s Constitutional rights. These are states’ laws, not Congress’.

          So YOU are WRONG!

          And please note that I said the “concept” of the separation of church and state – not “law”.

          And when you say “an abomination”, what are you quoting from? The Bible? Where is that part of the Constitution? That’s YOUR interpretation of the Bible, which can’t be used to coerce another’s behavior.

          1. ARJAY says:

            The states signed on to the U S of A. When they did that, they RECOGNIZED AND AGREED that the U S Constitution IS THE LAW OF THE LAND. The states therefore can NOT pass ANY LAWS that are CONTRARY to the Constitution!

            If those states do NOT want to follow “the law of the land’ THEY NEED TO secede from the U S of A!!

            You said: “And when you say “an abomination”, what are you quoting from? The
            Bible? Where is that part of the Constitution? That’s YOUR
            interpretation of the Bible, which can’t be used to coerce another’s

            Yes, a direct quote from the Bible, “abomination”. Google it yourself!

            Well, genius, Bible verses are NOT a part of the Constitution! DUH!

            Read what the 1st Amendment actually says about FREEDOM OF RELIGION!! We are GUARANTEED, by the 1st A, to be able to practice our beliefs, ANY WAY WE DESIRE TO!

            Homosexuals are CRAMMING their LIFESTYLE down our throats, making it impossible for some Christians to PRACTICE THEIR BELIEFS!!

            I guess THAT’S ok with you!!

          2. I Seigel says:

            Well, if you don’t want someone’s lifestyle “crammed down your throat”, maybe you should simply shut your mouth. Just a suggestion.

          3. ARJAY says:

            I EXPECTED a response like that from you. You didn’t disappoint me.

            You showed your TRUE colors!!

    Listen Folks,It doesn’t matter whether Obama is a Christian or not,thats like asking if he is a dog or a cat.Christianity is not the standard of righteousness that people believe it is,Yah doesn’t care what religion you belong to,all man made religions will be toast when Yeshua returns,Yahweh’s standard is His Torah(teaching and Instructions)including his Commandments,statutes and Judgments,this is his Covenant that he has made with Israel,which we Gentiles have been grafted into if we Obey him,and walk as Yeshua walked,the question that should be ask(and their are many)does he Keep Yahweh’s forever Covenant and his forever Torah Laws,its the same question we should be asking our selves,the Bible says we are to examine our own selves to see if we are in the faith,and prove our own selves,to no if Yeshua is in us,or are we reprobates,do we do the word of God or do we just talk and not do,that is the fruit we are to produce,the fruit of Righteousness which is right actions,does Obama or anyone do or have right actions,the answer is simple,he does not exhibit right actions according to the faith once delivered,nor does most Christians,that is why Christian standards are not the standard we should desire and will leave us short of Yeshua’s perfection(glory).—Jim Hunt

  • victoriadelacy says:

    As far as I am concerned, that article (which was also carried on the Drudge Report today) just knocked Walker out of the top tier of candidates for next year. Where has he BEEN? Obama has been known to refer to America as being the biggest Muslim nation on the planet, he refers to the call to Muslim prayer as being the prettiest sound on earth, he sanctions the idea of the constuction of a salt-in-the-wound Ground Zero victory mosque, and he is highly critical of Christianity while never a word spoken about the evil that is radical Islam. He rejects our traditional observance of the National Day of (Christian) Prayer while celebrating the Muslim Ramadan for the first time in our history in the White House. He has been photographed kneeling in mosques half way around the world and the not so reverend Jeremiah Wright under whose pulpit tirades he sat for decades is known for condemning our nation to hell from the pulpit. The Founding Fathers would be spinning in their graves to see how the oval office occupant there today is taking America down a path into disgrace! Since Walker thinks American voters have no Christian conscience and apparently he shares that view, he is not fit to become our next President, period. Ted Cruz’s dad is a Christian preacher – send TED to the oval office next year – what a breath of fresh air that will be indeed! Run, Ted, RUN, this voter will gladly back your candidacy…all the way to the White House!

    1. Barry Watkins says:

      I’ll bet you don’t know if the devil is a Christian or not.

  • David Stovall says:

    Wow! Deep, Deep penetrating question. Journalism rises to heights never before reached. We must know ( not if Obama is a Christian) but what one person’s opinion is about it. Forget the economy, the war with fundamentalist Muslims, the employment problem, the debt problem, we must know one man’s opinion about what is in another man’s heart, which he has no way of knowing , and he said so. Ask Obama , he is the only one who knows.

  • ralph says:

    I like people that do business when that is what they are suppose to be doing. But I also know that you must get to were you can do the business. That is why I think the people should back Ben Carson for Presaident because with the status of the united states we would get into the white house and it would be Great if scott Walker went as Vice so we had to great people in office that would work together and get this country turned around and not only that but have Scott Walker then run for President with like Ted Cruz as vice and keep things going for a change instead of one shot to do a lot of work

  • Lily Haley says:

    Well, despite his words, none of Obama’s actions show any obvious indication that he really is a Christian. They are the opposite. Since he is a narcissist, maybe he just worships himself. He constantly praises islam, and refuses to use the phrase islamic terrorism. So if Obama is a Christian, he keeps it camouflaged.

    There is a saying, If you were on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? In Obama’s case, he would either be acquitted, or the judge would simply throw the case out of court.

    1. wright2665 says:

      That is a nice way to look at it. If all of the evidence were presented in court … Obama would definitely be acquitted of being a Christian. The preponderance of evidence would probably lay serious allegations that would align him with Islam. In either situation … the case would be thrown out.

  • terryk says:

    I have no doubt that Obama is a Muslim sympathizer, he continues to refuse to call the terrorists what they are Islamic Terrorists not some unfortunates who are misguided. they are dedicated to establishing an ISLAMIC caliphate through out the globe and killing or enslaving anyone not willing to convert to Islam.

    1. bobnstuff says:

      The President doesn’t want to loose the Islamic world in his fight against ISIS, he is being careful in his words. ISIS is killing more Muslims then anyone else. You want him to anger a third of the world. I remember a while back people had problems with his minister. He can’t win.

    2. I Seigel says:

      He’s authorizing air strikes and ground action. What difference do some PR words make? Get real and focus on what’s really important.

  • Joan Neighbors says:

    If he can’t make a decision on this point, what will his decisions (if any) be on a critical matter? Why would he not make a comment one way or another? Is he simply playing a safe game of politics? That would not work in the game of politics today. America needs strong, honest and truthful leaders who stand their ground and fight for patriotic Americans. We don’t need leaders who are wimps or who compromise with evil.

    1. tracymae says:

      He is simply stating he doesn’t know. I don’t know, I have suspicions, but don’t know for sure. i am from Wisconsin and can guarantee he is not a wimp. I quite honestly hope he does not run for President, he hasn’t finished what he has started here.

    2. David Stovall says:

      That was a gotcha question, and a stupid question, the right answer was given. He made a decision , and the right one.

      1. Shirley Ayala says:

        Scott is too smart to get caught in questions that want to trap him!

    3. wright2665 says:

      He can’t make a comment because the “leftist” leaning American press cares little for the truth. They are deliberately bringing their attack dogs to the fore … with the clear realization that if they can assassinate his character they can further cut down the conservative voice in this country and end with their two favorite “Republicans” Chris Christie and Jeb Bush … both of which are not conservatives and have more ties to the left than the right. We don’t live in a country with a “free” press. In many ways, the American press is more like Pravda during the height of the Soviet Union. The big difference was that most of the Russians understood that what Pravda was pushing was politically motivated, slanted and often blatantly false. American “sheeple” still believe that what they see on the major networks news shows represents the truth. Sadly, not only is much of what they air slanted and nowhere impartial but they often fail to cover important news items … if they damage the left’s positions. Obama is the crowning jewel of their deception and betrayal of the American people.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        So you don’t think he should have had to answer the question. In a free press people are asked questions and are expected to give an answer. You should spent some time learning how the media really works and who controls it. The media reflects the country which is not conservative but a little left of center. The media is a business so they give their viewers what they want, just like Fox News feeds into the right wing prejudices. It’s a
        business and anything they can do to get viewers they will do. They give the people what they want.

        1. I Seigel says:

          Isn’t it ironic that these same people demanded and were outraged that the Texas gubernatorial candidate, Wendy Davis, wouldn’t answer the question if she supported Obama. But it’s OK for Scott Walker to dodge a similar question. Just another example of the hypocrisy of the Right.

        2. wright2665 says:

          So, they give the people what they want. I believe the Roman emperors gave the citizens what they wanted also, blood, savagery and death in the Arena. That didn’t make it right. The American electorate, for the most part, doesn’t even take the time to understand the issues let alone be knowledgeable about them. The left’s view that we are left of center is a position that has been thrust on us by that very same press that cannot tell the truth if that truth hurts their position. It is easier for both the left and the right to lie than to tell the truth. Eventually, both sides should be caught up in their lies. That does not happen in the American press. They focus far more attention “smearing” the right, justified or not, than attacking the left. Stories are aired that benefit the networks point of view. They pick and choose what to air and what to omit. Truth is what is lost. We have a bogus president as proof.

          1. I Seigel says:

            I’m just wanting to be clear on your meaning:
            “Stories are aired that benefit the networks point of view. They pick and choose what to air and what to omit. Truth is what is lost.” You’re referring to FOX News here, right?

          2. wright2665 says:

            LOL … troll.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            As I said you really need to go learn something about the media, like who owns them. Every poll ever taken puts the population of the country a little left of center on average. We are a moderate nation. We elect moderate presidents. We watch a moderate media. 66% of the republican party are moderates. You are told the media lies by the media, go figure, Have you ever checked a fact you have heard in the media at the prime source? From what you have said my guess is no. All media is big business and thus has no soul. All media tells you truth from a point of view that they
            hope you share.
