"Obama Embraces 'Christian' Label after Worrisome Polls "When President Obama lit the National Christmas Tree behind the White House last year, he spoke of a "child born far from home" and said "while this story may be a Christian one, its lesson is universal." According to Religion News Service, the president referenced that same "child born far from home" this year, but added a more personal twist: "It's a story that's dear to Michelle and me as Christians." What changed? For one, three separate polls in the past year have found that one in four Americans think the president is a Muslim, 43 percent don't know what faith he follows, and four in 10 Protestant pastors don't consider Obama a Christian. Stephen Mansfield, author of "The Faith of Barack Obama," said the polls "had to be a wake-up call to the White House," motivating the president to speak more personally and openly about his faith."
