Religion likes to believe there's only one way to show faith.

It's more of a "I don't agree with him, he's not like me, he's not actually Christian like I am!"

Nothing more and nothing less.

Because Republicans take it too personally when we all whined that Bush "wasn't really president" because of election technicalities, their first response is, like the third grader, to say, "Oh, yeah? Well....maybe....your president isn't president either because of a technicality, and then we won't have to pay attention to anything HE says either, howdja like that, huh, howdja like that?? "

Hence the pursuing of Impeachment processes against Bill Clinton for the Lewinsky mess ("What do you mean, it was just a fine and we can't throw him out? We thought they always, like, had to throw out presidents after impeachment, like Nixon 'n stuff??")
And the pursuing of some deep disqualification against Obama's presidency, so he won't get that healthcare after all, so there.

(Although I'm not sure why Republicans get so preoccupied with searching for his mythical "Kenyan birth certificate" to disqualify his citizenship status, when eight years earlier, these were the same people campaigning for an Amendment to have the citizenship rule removed, so that Austrian-born Republican actor/governors could run for president...)

Because people were abused as kids and raised to beleive hatred is ok and that violence against someone you don't like is "the right thing to do' I personally feel sorry for these type of people and wish I could help them overcome their ignorance.

and this keep coming up. I don't get it.

There are people who like to decide who is a "real" Christian and who isn't. For example I like listening to Rock music and love the movie Fight Club....to someone I am either not a "real" Christian or I'm backsliding. It's basically if you have a different view or enjoy something that the other doesn't agree with....then you aren't a "real" Christian to them. In their mind their way is right and their way is the only way. My Bible teacher worked with a guy who would ,when passing by churches say whether or not said church was a real church.

I don't care what the president's religion is as I find it irrelevant. All I care about is if the president is capable of actually doing good for the country and helping it.

Edit: hmm I quoted you, but for some reason the last part of your post didn't get in the quote.
