Bestselling atheist author and Oxford professor Richard Dawkins told celebrity atheist Bill Maher that he "is sure" President Obama "is an atheist." Not only that, so was President Kennedy, Dawkins claimed:
Dawkins' speculation will likely give pleasure both to Obama's atheist supporters who secretly wish Obama was one of their kind, and to Obama-opposing Christians who will feel their worst suspicions are confirmed.
For the record, all the evidence points to Obama being a sincere Christian. He was brought up without any religion, but became Christian in his 20s and has attended church since then. He reads a religious text every day, according to the AP.
