God in the Obama Era is our topic with Niels Nielsen Jr on The Core Business Show with Tim Jacquet.. Niels Nielsen Jr, Professor of Philosophy and Religious Thought & Author of "God in the Obama Era - Presidents Religion from George Washington to Barack Obama" As President of the United States, the values, customs and ethics of that individual influence the nation as they represent this country to the world. Many of those who elect him or her have usually the same values and religious beliefs. Since taking office, President Obama's religious affiliation has come under intense scrutiny. Some feel he's a Muslim and Terrorist supporter. Some say he's Christian as he says he is; yet he's one of the few Presidents who hardly goes to church at all.
