    Re: The Rev. Franklin Graham Says President Obama was 'Born a Muslim'

    In the immortal words of Lionel Richie, Now that we have come to the end of our rainbow...

    "I think the president's problem is that he was born a Muslim, his father was a Muslim. The seed of Islam is passed through the father like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother. He was born a Muslim, his father gave him an Islamic name," Graham told CNN's John King in a televised interview that aired Thursday night.

    "Now it's obvious that the president has renounced the prophet Mohammed, and he has renounced Islam, and he has accepted Jesus Christ. That's what he says he has done. I cannot say that he hasn't. So I just have to believe that the president is what he has said," Graham continued, adding that "the Islamic world sees the president as one of theirs."

    So to the beginning post...a CNN (Not FOX NEWS, ya jagoff...) reporter ASKED THE REVERAND a question...he answered with the above answer...

    so what is it about THAT RESPONSE was worthy of this many comments, INCLUDING comments like "the apple has fallen very far from the tree" and negative comments about reverend Graham himself...

    yes, his whole answer was designed to do nothing but alleviate the fears about obama being a muslim.

I've seen both; the latter is very disturbing.
    The media is misrepresenting or at the very least they are only pandering to one side.
    All I hear is about the protestors is Anti-Muslim, Islamaphobic,Obamaphobic or both, Bigoted, Hatemongers, Fearmongers, Right Wing Racists, they don't understand the Constitution, don't they believe in freedom of religion, they're listening to Palin,Rush, Newt, Fox is ginning up the hate, they are misinformed ..........on and on
    Never having a dialoge about real reasons the Mosque is opposed by so many.
    Never questioning the motives of those who are so adament about building the Mosque on that very spot and none other will satisfy them. Why there?? Because they have a right? Is that the best excuse they can come up with?

    Why does the media question the motives of the protestors but not those in favor of it?

    Not sure I understand your response. I listened to the actual CNN interview. Graham wasnt asked to DEFEND Obama...he was asked why there where so many people confused about his religous status. He wasnt trying to fix things for him...he simply answered the question...and for what its worth, its a pretty fair response. He didnt say...well...REGARDLESS of what he SAYS...this is what he IS. What he said was "here is why there is the confussion, and this is what he says".

    Oh...I know this one...like some on the right and their kneejerk responses to Obama, there is a kneejerk response to the ideological left to support ANY and EVERYTHING the 'right' opposes.

    let's address this
    maybe one exists, but i am unaware of any offer being made to this organization to provide an equal or better locale for their intended facility?
    if not, this would be a ripe moment for somebody to play hero, while defusing the situation. it would require a very decent alternate location for the muslim group to consider such a substitute footprint for their facility, and allow them to save face by agreeing to accept it
    but again i ask ... has such an adequate counter proposal been tendered?
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Snide comment aside...it doesnt change the fact that he offered an alternative solution...something no one else in this case has done.
