    Re: Egyptian minister: Obama told me he is a Muslim

    What is this US obsession with Obamas religion for? What does it matter which religion he is?

    This is mutlifaceted.

    In a specific sense, most of those still pushing this are people who have a significant issue with Obama and they think that exposing him as a "muslim" would do him a great deal of political harm and thus get him out of office...if not immedietely at least by 2012.

    In a broader sense, if it was somehow true (which is kind of like saying if smurfs existed and lived inside of Pulto. So you know, Possible, but highly highly highly improbable to the point that its ridiculous) it would do grave damage to Obama for a two fold reason. On one hand you'd have people simply upset with him for apparently lying to everyone for years upon years. On the other hand you'd have people who dislike or distrust Muslims in general and thus would use that as extra fuel to raise suspicions about him and work against him.

    To the vast majority of the American public at this point though I'd imagine Obama's religion isn't much of an issue as its already known and is a dead issue.

    That's simple: When he's Muslim, that means he is an enemy of the US and a terrorist with the aim of destroying America. Because all Muslims stick together and have one sinister agenda, they are all the same and there are no differences among them (you know, much like the Nazis said the Jews behaved), are all supportive of terrorism and theocratic dictatorship and enemies of freedom(tm). If you don't believe me, then read the Protocols of the Elders of Islam and look how often they are lying.

    Like hell they do! They seem to never quit bickering(or killing each other even) over which brand of Islam is better than which.

I suppose every member of Congress who voted to fund the war in Iraq was on a "mission from God" right? Including Barack Obama, who was a US Senator who voted in favor of the war effort in Iraq, right. You've talked yourself into a hole dear lady. LOL

    BTW, I'm sorry that you are so bitter toward the idea that SOME people can find comfort through the Christian Faith, even WITHOUT attempting to force others to subscribe to it.

    Doesn't it just make you sooooo angry that the majority of earthlings profess belief in at least some form of supreme being/deity, and that even highly educated people (world leaders and the vast majority of US Presidents included) have subscribed to belief in some form of absurd, unverifiable, unsubstantiated religious "fairy story" as you so eloquently put it? That just reeaalllly gets under your collar doesn't it? Upset because you just can't seem to convince me of how "ignorant" I really am? LOL, you little Atheists are so darn cute some times!

    Never can tell - Glinda may turn out to have the fate of Saul.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Didn't Obama vote against the Iraq war as Senator? I thought that was one of the reasons why many preferred him over Hillary.

    And of course, it were probably other reasons that convinced Congress members of the war in Iraq than religious reasons ... but still, IF Chirac's claims are true, I would consider it really, really frightening. After all, that guy was in possession of the nuclear suitcase.

    I'm not shocked people believe this crap, but I would very shocked if it were true. I think Obama is a secular Christian (without strong convictions) and thus might have a heart for Muslim, but there is no evidence of him being a Muslim.
