(AP) - A Southern Baptist leader says people who question whether President Barack Obama is a Christian and whether he was born the United States are "irrational and a little unbalanced."
The Rev. Richard Land said on ABC's "This Week" that it's "just flat nuts" to believe the president is a Muslim or that he wasn't born in Hawaii.
Land, who heads the public policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, said he considers Obama "a very typical 21st Century mainline Protestant."
The Rev. Franklin Graham, in a separate interview on ABC's "This Week," said the question is how you define who's a Christian. He said that for Obama, "going to church means he's a Christian."
But Graham said he believes a Christian is one who has given his life to Jesus Christ and "is following him in faith."
He added that only God knows if Obama is a Christian in that sense.
