Beck played an old Betamax of Obama — a proclaimed United Church of Christ member — saying, “My individual salvation is not going to come about without a collective salvation for the country.” According to Beck, this is “not a Christian belief” but “liberation theology,” which began with the Catholic churches in Latin America mid-last century, and is therefore rooted in Christianity, but is also strongly infused with Marxism-Communism, and is therefore also Satanic.
Beck further explained Obama’s religious beliefs:
President Obama is not a Muslim. I’m taking his word that he is a Christian. But here’s where it falls apart for many Americans: It’s a Christianity that most Americans just don’t recognize.
I don’t know what that is, other than he’s not Muslim, he’s not Christian. He’s a perversion of the gospel of Jesus Christ as most Christians know it.
American Spectator contributor George Neumayr, for example, is sure that “He is a relativist, wrapped in a Muslim, inside an agnostic. But perhaps he can be clinically described as a practicing agnostic, with deep roots in and sympathy for Islam, who views his now-professed, politically necessary religion with barely concealed disdain while allowing himself from time to time bursts of syncretistic sophistry and quasi-religious uplift.”
