(Newser) – People are confused about the president's faith because he was "born a Muslim," declares the son of Billy Graham. It's simple: Barack Obama's father was a Muslim, "and the seed is passed through the father," the Rev. Franklin Graham tells CNN in an interview airing tonight. "Of course, the president says he is a Christian, and we just have to accept it as that.” Politico has more details. For more on the recent poll showing the confusion, click here.
