The Fox News headline on their website proclaims “Obama Botches Bible Verse at Prayer Breakfast“. They claim that Obama misquoted a familiar Bible verse, and even accompany it with a rather unflattering photo of the president.
OMG! Is this proof that Obama isn’t really a Christian? Are conservatives right when they claim he is a secret Muslim, and only pretends to be Christian so he can get elected?
There’s just one problem. As most people know — but apparently Fox News doesn’t — there is more than one version of the Bible, two of the most popular being the New International Version and the King James Version. Obama was quoting from one, while Fox News was quoting from the other to debunk him.
So my question is, is Fox News lying on purpose, or are they just really stupid? And now that their error has been pointed out, why haven’t they corrected the article?
Even more stupid, in a poll done last year, only one-third of Americans believe that Obama is Christian. Where would they get an idea like that?
