In invoking ‘Judeo-Christian values,’ Ryan is stunning in his hypocrisy
Published: November 5
When the going gets tough the tough get going. In this case it was Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan.
In a conference call Sunday organized by Ralph Reed of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, Ryan spoke to thousands of evangelicals.
Saying that President Obama’s policies on health care and religious freedom are leading us down a “dangerous path, “ Ryan went on to warn, “It’s a path that grows government, restricts freedom and liberty and compromises those values, those Judeo-Christian, Western civilization values that made us such a great and exceptional nation in the first place.”
To whom was Ryan speaking? Not just evangelicals but the 17 percent of Americans who believe that President Obama is a Muslim. What was Ryan implying? That Obama is a Muslim. What do most of these true believers think Muslims are? Terrorists.

4. What about the even more Americans who think Obama is Jewish?
According to a new Associated Press survey, more Americans believe President Barack Obama is Jewish than believe that the president is a Muslim; while a plurality of the surveyed individuals believe he has “no religion.”
The survey, conducted using 1,071 random adults during the first week of September, asked, “Do you happen to know the religion of ?”
The results were as follows:
Protestant — 28%
Catholic — 5%
Mormon — 0%
Jewish — 18%
Muslim — 10%
Other religion — 2%
No religion — 35%
Don’t know — 2%
Refused/Not Answered — 28%
