    That is all a very nice way to say what I should have said far more succinctly: "what an ass"

    No, you made a lot of claims about what you presume that he thinks, and I asked you to back up your claims....I guess you can't.

    I saw it, it was shameless ofcourse. Trying as hard as they could to frame, and qualify his remarks, and then later chop them up out of context to smear him....Does religion scare you libs that much?

    pointed out his blatant hypocrisy - as a supposed religious leader
    refusing to confirm Obama to be a Christian while insisting newt was - based on their actions
    such a double standard which is embarrassing to other legitimate religious professionals


    but since you viewed that telling video it confirms you didn't actually require the proof you were insisting upon receiving. doesn't enhance your credibility either

    Haven't we been down this road before?

    For those who weren't part of the discussion when the issue first came up months ago, Franklin Graham is trying to say that by religious custom, Barack H. Obama, Jr. was "born" a Muslim by virtue of his father being a Muslim. In short, the religion of the father is passed down to the son. But here's the problem with that concept: It only works if:

    1) you live in a country where such a religious custom is strictly adhered to which we don't in America (for the most part anyway); and,

    2) your family adheres to such a custom which based on public accounts the Obamas do not.

    Our nation's 44th President has stated publically on numerous occasions and in his own manuscripts that HE IS A CHRISTIAN. For me, this issue was put to rest a long time ago.

    The only reason Franklin Graham is bringing up the President's so-called "religious heritage" again is because of the issues surrounding contraceptives. It's an attempt to reinforce a the false belief many people have about the President's religious faith. Hate to break it to ya', it didn't gain any traction then and it won't now.

    Franklin is poorly educated. He can't help thinking that religion is genetic.. Pretty pathetic.

    I laid out his education. Which institution of higher learning is not up to snuff in your mind?

    That sure is a lot of talk to say essentially that you think it was an unfair attack on Obama...Look, Obama may be a Christian, and say it all he wants, but his Father was Muslim, and the Arab Street sees him as such. I would also add that if his attendance in the Rev. Wright's 'Church' is what his claim on Christianity is, then that isn't much of a conversion to Christianity imho.
