:People are afraid of the unknown and will put up a mental defense to protect their ego. Obama is a proven liar. If he can't be trusted in small matters how can he be trusted to be truthful with things as important as faith? --[[User:Jpatt|Jpatt]] 21:10, 3 January 2013 (EST)
In general, attacking a political candidate's religious beliefs is like a boxer punching below the belt, and the public does not like such tactics. Here, candidate Obama and later President Obama has repeatedly stated that he is a Christian, and most people accept that at face value. However, people have to ask who was behind the email campaign that tried to mislabel him as a Muslim during both the 2008 and 2012 campaigns. I note that people generally treated Mitt Romney's Mormon beliefs as outside the bounds of the 2012 campaign. [[User:Wschact|Wschact]] 23:05, 4 January 2013 (EST)
:The liberal media did exaggerate the fact that Romney is a Mormon, and would have done much more of that if they thought Romney might win.
