For the better part of six years, the wingnut fringe has been trying to claim that Obama isn't really a Christian.  But just when it was settled that they think he's a radical Muslim, now comes a new canard--he's a pagan.  At least, that's what Liberty Counsel would have you believe.

On today's edition of Liberty Counsel's daily radio program, "Faith and Freedom," Mat Staver and Matt Barber claimed that the Alabama Air National Guard ixnayed a tour by a church youth group solely because of their religious beliefs.  There is nada, zero, zip evidence this ever happened.  Not in the reality-based media, that is.  The only other report of this supposed incident comes from Gordon Klingenschmitt, the disgraced former Navy chaplain who thinks that Christian photographers ought to write anti-gay Scriptures on the wedding pictures from LGBT weddings.

But of course, facts never got in the way of a religious right handwringing session.  Barber then claimed this was evidence the White House was infused by "a pagan worldview."  Watch for yourself--and pile up the dislikes.

Barber claimed that Obama is no different from a Roman emperor in that he demands we worship the false god of progressivism.  He also railed against the apparent embrace of "pagan sexual morality."

So if we're to believe Barber and Staver, we're no longer led by a radical Kenyan socialist Mooslim.  Nope, we're led by a radical socialist pagan.  Oh, the humanity!

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
