While some are still politely questioning President Obama's professed Christianity, others are getting a little louder about their faith and his stance on Israel.

"Jesus is the Lord of Israel," a woman yelled from the crowd while Obama was speaking in Kansas City recently.

"I'm sorry, what are you hollering about?" Obama asked the woman, according to Mediaite. The woman apparently repeated, "Jesus is the Lord of Israel," and something else that could not be picked up amid noise from the crowd.
