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 its 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.
yea, that’s what i thought....if this email has floated since aug and no one ask about it here then i will assume it is a another myth...
Staff Sgt. Salvatore Giunta (JUHN-ta) who you pictured is a Soldier, not a Marine.
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
Obama claimed that his ring had been sent out for repairs before. Why does it constantly need repairs?
I bet the management at Rolex must cringe when it happens....
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.
“Obama claimed that his ring had been sent out for repairs before. Why does it constantly need repairs?”
Probably flattened one side from playing so much damn golf.
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.
His ring looks more like a signet ring than a wedding ring.
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.
Well stated. This is what I believe as well.
Most “emails” I get are urban legends even if I agree with the sentiment.
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.
Going to church doesn’t make one a christian.
the watch is on his left hand [video] but i thought left handers wore watch on right hand and vice versa...
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.
This part of the post is either old or not accurate. Obama has made a point of going to a Christian Church several times.
According to Bill O. the ONE THING Muslims won’t consume is caffeine. Apparently petting dogs and eating poem is a choice. I was not aware of this.
and i guess now you don’t have to be a natural born citizen to be President...oh well guess things change...for some generations!
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.
Obastard is neither Christian nor Muslim. His god is himself.
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.
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 thought left handers wore watch on right hand and vice versa...”
Some do, some don’t. We lefties can be unpredictable. I wore my watch on my left hand for many years. Now I wear it on my right.
This story is old.
“According to Bill O. the ONE THING Muslims wont consume is caffeine. Apparently petting dogs and eating poem is a choice. I was not aware of this.”
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”.
Regrets...will change text to "American Soldier"
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.
It's not Ramadan, though.
Good morning RnMomof7,
“muslim men do not wear gold, it is considered feminine”?
Well Mr. Obamma is about as feminine a man as one can get.
Now his shelf ass ole lady, she is as manley a woman as one can get.
So I misunderstood the question. I thought something was wrong.
I wasn’t aware that obama had eaten pork. I’ve seen the pictures of him and the dog.
See my post to llandres. I misunderstood.
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.
Whoa. I can believe it. It does look like a ring that belongs to something other that MooCow he is married to.
Did Dude attend Mass Christmas Eve?
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.
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.
