Obama's WEDDING RING BEING REPAIRED, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE WATCH (from email blaster - is this true?)
12/25/2010

Posted on 12/25/2010 2:30:37 PM PST by devane617

WEDDING RING BEING REPAIRED, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE WATCH

Another piece falls into place.

In a press conference last week Obama was not wearing his wedding ring nor was he wearing his watch.

When noticed, his staff said his ring was out for repairs.

No reason was given for the missing watch.

So it’s just a coincidence that Muslims are forbidden from wearing jewelry during the month of Ramadan??? (think about that one)

Can't possibly be that, because although he hasn't gone to a Christian church service since entering the White House, we know he's a committed Christian 'cause he said so during the campaign.

It’s not Ramadan. That occurred in Aug/Sept.

"It’s not Ramadan. That occurred in Aug/Sept."

Well, Devane617 said he received it "a while back." So it's possible it was Ramadan-related. We'll just have to wait 'til next year, I guess, and see if the ring goes missing again. But there's a problem: it is haram for men to wear gold at any time; the prohibition came from the Muslim Prophet himself.

I remember this event and it was during Ramadan. ...I never did hear the end of that observation .

I do remember researching it at the time, seems muslim men do not wear gold, it is considered feminine

Real Muslims don’t wear jewelry. And depending on your social status, can be beaten in the public square if caught doing so. The Saudis are big on this. Only the privileged get away with it. Sort of like most laws everywhere.

Talk about paranoid. Ramadan is long over, if he’s not wearing them now it is for another reason. I believe he is sympathetic to Muslims but believe he is also a marxist and believes in no religion what so ever, except the religion of government and socialism.

Not only is it not Ramadan, but think about this: We’ve seen this guy eat pork. If he was a Muslim so far undercover he was willing to eat pork, he would also be willing to violate Ramadan rules.

I do wonder why he doesn’t jist say, “sometimes Idon’t wear the ring, deal with it.” Not only do I know guys who are very faithful to their wives but where no ring (because they can’t wear it on the job) but its not like he could bluff some chick into believeing he’s single because he isn’t wearing the ring.

because although he hasn't gone to a Christian church service since entering the White House

Barack Obama's been to several Christian church services since becoming President. They're always highly publicized - of course.

A quick Google will turn up multiple articles with photos.

I'm always suspicious of the remainder of the content when an email states a blunt anti-Obama fact that's so easily disproven.

This part of the post is either old or not accurate. Obama has made a point of going to a Christian Church several times.

The President ordered one of the house specialty, the Frita, which is a spiced beef/chorizo patty slathered with ketchup, served on Cuban bread (traditionally made with lard), and piled high with raw onions and shoestring fries. He also ordered five more Fritas with cheese--all to go.

And then tossed the owner a couple of bucks. Aides hurried to pay the full amount. This is probably what happened if it's like that other time with the apples.

I don’t have the link but a while back it was proven this wasn’t a wedding ring. It’s middle eastern and he’s been wearing it since his college days. Check out some pictures from that time period. Can’t think of what it’s called... something about two elephants or some such.

Um... no. Absolutely not. Muslims consume caffeine right along with the rest of the world, maybe more.

Coffee originated in Ethiopia and Muslims were the first to cultivate it and drink it. Many in the Middle East drink "Turkish Coffee", which is coffee that has been powdered, then boiled until it's super-strong, sometimes with sugar. The resulting coffee is so unbelievably strong... hard to describe.

The Latin name for the most common type of coffee is Coffea arabica and coffee is sometimes referred to as "The Wine of Islam". Muslim nations drink a lot of it.

From the National Coffee Association of the USA:

The Arabs were the first, not only to cultivate coffee but also to begin its trade. By the fifteenth century, coffee was being grown in the Yemeni district of Arabia and by the sixteenth century it was known in Persia, Egypt, Syria and Turkey.

Also: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/coffee/

The word "coffee" is derived from an Arabic word, btw.

Finally, some Muslims keep dogs for service reasons (hunting, guarding), but pork is a no-no, period. It is "Haram" ("forbidden").

Precisely, Silver. And if Obama can lie and claim to be a Christian when he is really a Muslim, he can also wear whatever he wants when he wants.

I saw the Best Of episode as well. No, the multiple choice question was what is the one thing Muslims are NOT forbidden. That was caffeine, the one thing they ARE allowed, out of the list of choices. Having dogs as pets, eating pork and consuming alcohol are all forbidden by the “faith”.

No, but some people lacking virtue actually believe that by removing their ring, their actions are not bound to matrimonial oaths so as not to incur guilt afterward.

Well, Devane617 said he received it "a while back."

Ooops...sorry. I didn't see that part.

I also read on this thread that Barry has been seen eating pork. I didn't know that, either.

I also didn't know that Muslim men weren't supposed to wear jewelry. I've seen Iraqi men wearing gold - in fact, it's not uncommon. Then again, a lot of Iraqis tend not to be as strict in their Islamic practices as in some other countries. (Alcohol is legal in Iraq, women don't have to cover up, they can drive, vote and hold public office, etc.)

Having said that, I don't trust anything Obama does. We really have no idea who he is and he wants it that way. What we do know, such as his association with Ayers, his childhood in Indonesia, etc. tells us enough.

I hope someday, we do find out this thug's true background.

"Some Moslem, the guy is chomping publicly on pork!"

How do you figure? The article you linked-to states:

"...The President ordered one of the house specialty, the Frita, which is a spiced beef/chorizo patty slathered with ketchup..."

The chorizo is pork in origin, and the lard with which its bun is made is probably porcine in origin, but to my eye that hardly constitutes "chomping publicly on pork"-- I've had chorizo many times and didn't realize it was pork-based until I looked it up just now, so it's possible Obama didn't realize. The article doesn't mention the word "pork."

Beyond that, there's the whole issue of al taquiyya. Believers may cloak themselves in all matters if the intent is to deceive the infidel and thereby strengthen the hand of Islam in its overarching goal of conquest. Observing an individual doing haram things in dar al-Harb signifies nothing.

And now I'm hungry. Where can I get a Frita around here...?

Going to church doesn’t make one a christian.

I agree. Respectfully, I never intimated that it did. I certainly never suggested that Obama is a Christian. I don't know what's in his heart.

I was responding to the content of a mass email that said Obama had never been to church since he became President.

I pointed out that was not true. It's easily proven not to be true.

There's enough to dislike about this President without resorting those kind of misleading statements (I'm in a good mood today, so I didn't call them lies).

Emails with simplistic mistruths about the president aren't particularly helpful to anyone, except media sources who strive to demonstrate that anyone opposed to Obama is ignorant and makes up accusations.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and take this reply in the spirit of good will in which it was written.

That's not your job to know. HOWEVER, I will know them by their fruits and I WILL CALL IT as I SEE IT and he's no Christian.

mass email that said Obama had never been to church since he became President.

What a mindless task, IMO. Him going to church is so not important to me and would never feel a need to defend that action or not.

I pointed out that was not true. It's easily proven not to be true.

Your priorities are amazing.

Emails with simplistic mistruths about the president aren't particularly helpful to anyone,

Are you the minister of truth? Having an atheist who is a Patriot would be an improvement. So weak - calling what you think are email mistruths about a guy who plans on restricting your freedom of the internet away. IMO, it screams of a co-dependent behavior ala 'It doesn't matter what they do to me, I'll always defend bad behavior'.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and take this reply in the spirit of good will in which it was written.

I apologize, but I really do not understand what I did to upset you.

A poster copied an email he had received and asked for help to determine whether it was true or 'another myth.' The email suggested Obama was a Muslim because he wasn't wearing a watch or wedding ring during Ramadan, and because he had never attended church while President.

We could all list fifty statements or actions that suggest Obama is either Muslim, a Muslim-sympathizer, or treats Judaism and Christianity as second-fiddles to Islam.

Some posters pointed out reasons why the email might be a myth. The original poster asked for that help.

I simply pointed out that the statement that Obama had never attended church while President was not true, in an attempt to help the poster and address the very question that he or she presented to the Forum.

If I did something to offend you, then I apologize.

My actions were intended to be responsive to the request of the original poster and I believe were factual and on point in responding to the original poster.

It's not a matter of my pointing out "what I think" are email mistruths. The statement was not truthful. I hope that helped the poster.

It certainly wasn't intended to help Obama.

I responded with going to church doesn't make one a Christian, that's it! And while you agreed, you went on with the myths etc. blah, blah.

I really do not understand what I did to upset you

Trying to understand what isn't true is unproductive.

The statement was not truthful. I hope that helped the poster.

Imagine that - someone thinks that all emails are true and you needed to set them straight from the desk of the office of the minister of truth. Snopes can now go out of business.

If I did something to offend you, then I apologize.

Why does a mind go that route? FEELINGS!!!

Besides, perhaps, more like you didn't appreciate my post. Maybe not agreeing w/you means you were offended since what other reason could it be for me to not agree w/you. Gasp! BTW, you are giving yourself a whole lot of credit in even thinking you could accomplish that.

It certainly wasn't intended to help Obama.

More truth from the minister of truth?

suggested Obama was a Muslim because he wasn't wearing a watch or wedding ring during Ramadan, and because he had never attended church while President.

So now we can take the one 'never attended church' as any proof because the minister of truth said so.
