The Religion Question

It seems that people still question the religion of the Leader of the Free World:
A new poll from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life indicates that the number of Americans who erroneously believe President Obama is a Muslim is growing.

In March 2009, the percentage was 11 percent. Today, it's 18 percent.

The percentage of those asserting that the president is a Christian -- which he is -- has gone down in that time, from 48% in March 2009 to 34% today.

A plurality of Americans -- 43% -- say they don't know what religion the president is.
I'm sure that the President's lukewarm support of the Park51 project has not helped these numbers.

But, I find myself asking an important question; Who cares? What difference does it make what religion the President follows?
