Question: Is our president a true Christian who is simply doctrinally ignorant (as are many Christians of today), and is thus being seduced by various humanistic social groups, or is he a person that knows exactly what he is doing with regard to such things as control of the masses ("Big Brother"), and the development of "New World

Thus any name of any deity will do.
