    I mean, I really appreciate those who add their humorous comments to add "flavor" to a serious thread, particularly when the post is a trivializing diversion.

    Good work!

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

    Very interesting. My mother was Jewish, and so I have a right of return to a place I've never been, despite the fact that my mother was a non-practicing Jew.

    Seriously, according to you I am Jewish, but I am no more of the Jewish faith than Obama is Muslim. And that takes me to the following comment:

    Want to know why Obama is going to win this year? He could have been taken down on the issues. What issues? Here's one. He is about to drop the corporate tax rate to 26%. So what's wrong with that? Because he isn't doing anything about spending. I would say that his fiscal irresponsibility is one issue to attack him on. But (In my best John Belushi voice) NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Gotta keep bring up anything that might insinuate that he is a Muslim. This kind of attack on Obama, politically speaking, is..... Hmmm, what's the scientific phrase for that? Ahh, got it. Batpoop insane. This is the year that the GOP was presented with an opportunity to defeat Obama, and managed to shoot themselves in the foot.......

    Franklin Graham needs to lose his tax exempt position if he has one. He has become a spokesperson for the Republican party and his smear campaign based on religion isn't very Christian. He certainly isn't his father's son, he needs to just become a campaign organizer or something along that line. Obama by not reacting to the right's vicious attack on his faith shows more Christianity than all of the Republican candidates who spout off about their faith 24/7 put together.

    According to what I would suppose is an expert, yes:

    According to Edina Lekovic, director of policy at the Muslim Public Affairs Council, being born in a Muslim family doesn't make one a Muslim. A person has to make an active choice to become a Muslim, Lekovic said.

    U.S. News - Rev. Graham: Obama seen as 'son of Islam'
    If that is indeed the case, and it seems that it is, then once again we find a supposed religious expert/leader (Graham) who really doesn't know much at all about religion.

    Quote Originally Posted by nota bene View Post

    By your definition perhaps, but not by Graham's definition:

    Graham [...] told a Morning Joe panel he couldn't say for certain that Obama is a Christian. You have to ask him. I cannot answer that question for anybody. All I know is Im a sinner, and that God has forgiven me of my sins," Graham said. "You have to ask every person. He has said hes a Christian, so I just have to assume that he is.

    But Graham also said he couldn't "categorically" say Obama wasn't a Muslim, in part, because Islam has gotten a "free pass" under Obama.

    U.S. News - Rev. Graham: Obama seen as 'son of Islam'
    Then we get this gem, in the same interview:

    "I think Newt is a Christian, at least he told me he is," Graham said.

    U.S. News - Rev. Graham: Obama seen as 'son of Islam'
    So... Obama says he's a Christian, and Graham says maybe (but deep inside we all know he's a Muslim commie fascist).
    While Newt says he's a Christian, and Graham says yes.

    We all know what's going on here... typical right wing racist/bigot dog whistle. Which means that Graham is no reverend, but a political hack.

    It's 2008 all over again... Obama is a Rev. Wright-loving Muslim (how the right's mind works in resolving that oxymoron is beyond the comprehension of mere mortals) who supports terrorists and exhibits the additional sin of being black (food stamp president). The GOP base is simply retarded; and I apologize to all those who are involuntarily mentally challenged for insulting them by comparison.

    Alternatively, the GOP base is that young woman who, handcuffed, thought she could run away from a police station... except the GOP has already hit itself on the head.

    What do you mean he isn't his father's son? Billy Graham was one of Regan's biggest supporters, an anti-semite, and politically outspoken... I don't particularly care much assholes like him but the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I think if your congregation is above 1000 people, you're a business.
