While I am just going to make assumptions like the rest of you here is mine: there are two kinds of people that believe he is muslim, the ones that are generally just misinformed and only really follow politics around election time (if that) and then the ones that are informed but are just generally on the fringe.
    One thing that's being glossed over in the coverage of this is the tendency of people to answer poll questions incorrectly on purpose when they feel strongly about an issue. I'll wager that a nontrivial portion of people who are opposed to Obama and said that they think he's a Muslim said so not because they actually believe he's a muslim, but because they think he's a bad person and want to comment negatively about him. Similarly, if you took a poll asking whether GWB was a christian, I bet that liberals would be more likely than conservatives to say that he's not a christian and is instead something else.

    Re: Nearly 1 in 5 Americans Thinks Obama Is Muslim, Survey Shows

    Some of you have commented that those who took part in the survey who beleive Obama is a Muslim is bigoted.

    Why?

    Whats wrong with being a Muslim? If a white, caucasion American believes Obama is a Muslim because of Obama's statements, comments, speeches and support of Islam, so what?

    Your being disengenous (s/p) .... so what, if Obama is a Muslim, who gives a s***t.

    Thats between Obama and God ... and a hardworking Americans opinion is there own.

    But what Americans will NOT accept is a man that grew up Muslim, calls himself a Christian, but lives his spiritual life as an agnostic.

    1 in 4 think he's Muslim .... 1 in 10 Democracts think he's Muslim. Can you blame them?

    * He bows to the King of Saudi Arabia during his state visit.
    * He told the NYT that the sound of the Islamic "call to prayer was the prettiest sound in the world."
    * He does not go to church - he has no "home church" in D.C.
    * He jettisoned Rev. Wright when Wright's anti-Semitic comments became "politically toxic."
    * He calls Christ's Sermon on the Mount, "the most outrageous statement I have ever heard" - angering *millions* of Christians.
    * He supports the Ground Zero Mosque.


    All that added up = Obama is a Muslim.

    The American people are not stupid: they know where Obama's heart is. Its in Mecca.

    I have absolutely no problem with that, Barack.

    But GET A SET OF BALLS and COME OUT as a Muslim.

    Be honest with yourself, your wife, your spiritual life and your God, whoever that may be.
    Missed one, but I think you are spot on.



    Do I ever expect him to come out of the closet?. No, he is a pathological liar.

    I would probably bow to the King of Saudi Arabia during his state visit.
    I have fond memories of things that I heard when I was a child
    I go to church less often than obama.
    I would ditch Rev. Wright as well.
    That never happened.
    I "support" the mosque in the same way obama did.

    Well spank my ass and call me Abdullah, I guess I'm a muslim.

    I'd probably do blow off of some broad's ass with him. Would bending over the line count as bowing?

    Could it be that they are closet bigots themselves? It seems obvious to me.

    Muslim=bad

    Call someone a Muslim=bigot because Muslims are bad.

    In fact ... no one said "Muslim =bad" so I am not sure where you coming from there.

    Again, why call hard working Americans racist for saying they believe Obama is a Muslim?

    I may not like Islam (I detest the religion, its hatred of homosexuality, its innate anti-Semitism and its assault on women's rights and its built in hatred of Hinduism and Buddhism), but I will die for the right of *every* Muslim to worship in our nation.

    What Americans think is not "racist" - its fact.

    Are you serious? Do you really think people are claiming Obama is a Muslim and wanting him to come out as a Muslim just because they want him to be honest and that they don't themselves have extremely negative views of Muslims? I don't know what country you've been living in for the past 9 years...
