Why is Obama Talking More on His Christian Faith?

Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama has spoken more in public about his Christian faith in the past few months.

The day after Christmas, the president, First Lady Michelle Obama, and daughters Sasha and Malia attended a church service at St. Michael's Chapel in Hawaii -- something the family has rarely done since becoming president.

Obama also referenced his Christian beliefs during the recent lighting ceremony of the National Christmas Tree in Washington, D.C.

In fact, a study of the president's statements by Politico found that he has used the phrase "Christian faith" more in the past three months than he did all of last year.

Some analysts say the president is taking steps to remind the American public that he is a Christian.

Dr. Charles Dunn, Dean at the School of Government at Regent University, discussed the timing of Obama's emphasis of his faith and why he is reminding people that he is a Christian, on the Jan. 7 edition of CBN News Channel's Morning News. Click play to watch the interview.
