Franklin Graham Still Not Sure If President Obama Is A Christian

When last we saw Franklin Graham on the teevee, he was dabbling in birtherism and sowing doubt that the President of the United States is a Christian.

Well, he was at it again on Tuesday's Morning Joe -- playing the same little McCarthyist game with Obama's Christianity as Republicans did with birtherism. "Well, he says he's a Christian, so I accept that, but..."

Graham also refused to say "categorically" that Obama wasn't a Muslim, because, according to Graham, "Sharia Law" says Obama's a Muslim and, also, the President's "seems more concerned about" Muslims than Christians---somehow.

The panel, who let Graham spew way too much garbage over the course of the segment, finally let him have it at the end. The best moment is when Willie Geist asked Graham if he thought Rick Santorum is a Christian. No surprises: Graham didn't equivocate at all -- and exposed himself as the pathetic partisan hack he is.

Another bonus at the end: Graham wouldn't say that Mitt Romney's is Christian because, Graham said, he's a Mormon and "most Christians don't consider Mormons Christians."

Lovely man.
