KMOV reports:”Last Tuesday without any fanfare, the Barack Obama campaign announced Jennifer Joyce and Bob McCulloch, the top prosecutors in St. Louis city and St. Louis County, were joining something called an Obama truth squad.”

On ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopooulos, September 7, 2008, after GS stated”The McCain campaign has never suggested you have Muslim connections.”

Senator Obama replied: “Let’s not play games. What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you’re absolutely right that that has not come.”

After Stephanopooulos interrupted with “Christian faith,” Senator Obama changed what he said to “Christian faith.”

If you are Muslim, have you ever said “My Christian faith”? If you are Christian, do you ever say “My Muslim faith”? Or “My Jewish faith?” If you are Jewish, have you ever said “My Christian faith”? Or “My Muslim faith?”

You decide.  Not that his faith itself is a problem, whatever it is, honesty is the issue.  Faith is a personal matter between the individual and God.
