Muslims Have a Theological Reason to Approve of Barack Obama

You want to understand this polling showing Muslim support for Obama? Then read The Foundations of Social Order by R. J. Rushdoony.

As Politico reports, “Obama approval rating high with Muslims.”

President Barack Obama’s approval rating is higher among Muslims than any other religious group, a new poll says.

According to a Gallup poll released Friday that tracked responses for the first six months of 2014, 72 percent of Muslims said they approve of the president, compared with just 20 percent who disapprove.

The survey underscores a religious divide when it comes to presidential approval — Obama is more popular among non-Christians and less popular among Christians.

Friday’s findings are in line with Gallup results on religious groups’ approval ratings of Obama since the beginning of his presidency — the relative rank of the groups have not changed in the six years Obama has been in office. The president’s approval rating in every group for the past six months has dropped 5-7 points from the average of his entire presidency.

Why are Islamic nations almost exclusively dictatorships? Because their god is a dictator.

Why are Orthodox Christian nations most often led by strongmen? As a Protestant I believe (and Rushdoony argues) it is because these brothers and sisters in Christ have a distinctive in their theology of the Godhead.

Why have Protestant nations historically been the most literate peoples? Again, it can be traced back to theology.

It is inescapable that a culture will be shaped by its view of God.

Why is America now only a faint image of her original self? Biblical and theological illiteracy is the root. A large number of the “Christian” books and ministries that exist today would never have made it to publication or distribution in 18th Century America.

You want freedom back? It starts with recovering spiritual freedom in Jesus Christ. But as Dr. Francis Schaeffer would say, don’t follow Christianity because it produces a good social order—the only reason to be a Christian is because it’s true.
