A survey out today finds that more Americans attribute a biblical verse about justice and poverty to Barack Obama than to the Bible.
The survey found that 13 percent of Americans identified the Bible as the source of this verse: "You must defend those who are helpless and have no hope. Be fair and give justice to the poor and homeless."
A greater share, 16 percent, cited President Obama as the author of the verse.
Nine percent cited the Dalai Lama, and 8 percent named Martin Luther King Jr. as the source of the verse. Four percent cited Oprah Winfrey , while 3 percent named U2 singer Bono. A third of respondents said they didn't know the author.
The survey was conducted by Harris Interactive for the American Bible Society, in conjunction with the release of the group's new Poverty and Justice Bible.
