His mom was an agnostic atheist. Not too sure on him though. He doesn't strike me as particularly religious, despite the fact that he always ends his speeches with "...God bless America". I usually assume that he's just compensating for his lack of overt religiosity that was so obvious (and over the top) with the previous president.
Barack Obama is Christian, even John McCain brought that up when other "ignorant and bigoted people" thought he was a Muslim. They think that because his name is "different" or his father was Muslim. Ignorance at its best!
However, he strikes me as someone who has matured enough to understand that religion is really a delusion. Unfortunately, to mention this publicly in the US would be political suicide. How funny, a sane person cannot speak of his own sanity because his insane peers would condemn him for it.
When ask about his religion while running for president, Abraham Lincoln responded that it had nothing to do with the issue at hand and moved on to the next question. The issue was of course was serving as leader of the executive office. A perfect example of your de-evolving political process, they were smarter back then than mainstream Americans are now.
I think this was a logical question. I think it is also a necessity to know if our leaders are of a christian nature because this country was founded on christianity. W are a country that God blesses and I for one would like to keep in Gods good graces. Of course Obama would not tell us while we ae in a war with the middle east as we are now a known Muslim country that he is a muslim because then we would be hypocritical to vote him into office. Instead he decides to tell us hes a christian because thats better than saying that he is a muslim for votes. I am a christian and last time I checked christians were against abortion and gay marriage but Obama is for both of these abominations. I guess anyone can say they are a christian just dont stand up for what christians believe in. Mr. Obama actions do speak louder than words.
