Abraham Lincoln was Born a Muslim, Says Film Maker

Abraham Lincoln was Born a Muslim, Says Film Maker Apr 20 12:26 PM US/Eastern

ATLANTA, April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Barack Hussein Obama is not alone. The 16th President of The United States, Abraham Lincoln, was born a Muslim, says Faruq Masudi, producer and director of the new Islamic movie, Quran Contemporary Connections.

In a casting coup, Abraham Lincoln shares equal footage with luminaries of Islamic history like Saladin, King Faisal of Saudi Arabia and the former President of the UAE, Sheikh Zayed. What do they have in common?

Faruq Masudi said, "According to the Quran, everybody is born a Muslim. It is only by his own free will that a man chooses a different course for himself. In that Abraham Lincoln was not only a born Muslim but he chose to live by Islamic edicts like abolishing organized slavery; establishing equality of all human beings, democracy and accountability to God and Man; core Islamic concepts as propounded in the Holy Quran."

According to the filmmaker, Quran is compatible with American values and is not alien to them. Americans don't have to be afraid of the Quran as it is already playing out daily in their lives. And Muslims don't have to eye Americans with suspicion. According to Masudi, "there is quite a bit of Islam in the West without the Quran and there is little Islam in the East, despite the Quran."

Quran Contemporary Connections places the Quranic themes in modern setting and context. In a deliberate departure from the extremist interpretations, the narrative in the film runs "Allah is not a Muslim specific God; Muslim do not have a monopoly on Him. He is not a Christian God. Christians do not have a monopoly on Him.

Islamic edicts like ... equality of all human beings

I take it women are not considered human beings in Islam...

Hmmm.

All Muslims wear beards.

Abraham Lincoln wore a beard.

Therefore, Lincoln was a Muslim.

And to think these folks are descended from the vanished culture that invented algebra.

They deny Jesus and the Atonement through His Blood. That is enough to prove to me Islam is bogus and fake, and that they are all liars.

So, according to this theory Jesus was born a Muslim. So was I. And so were you. The giggle factor here is pretty high. This guy probably roomed with Baghdad Bob at the Madras.

He was not only a Moslem but he was also a Gay Moslem. However, it is reliably reported that the latter was on a part time basis.

Ha ha, that’s funny.

But seriously, anyone know what the total forced labor count is these days in Itrea? And how are those Christian women doing in Pakistan who had their teeth broken by a Muslim mob. How’s the King of Saudi Arabia doing with his attempts to make his kingdom democratic?

I work for a Chicago P.R. company, and we had a client, George Fox, Jr., who published a book, “Abraham Lincoln’s Faith-Based Leadership,” which was written by George Fox, Sr. (1885-1959). He was raised near Springfield, IL, and, while he was a child, he talked to several old men, who knew Lincoln, when Lincoln lived in Springfield. According to the book, those old men said that Lincoln said that his Christian faith was very important to him. He quoted many Bible verses, and his faith influenced many of his decisions, as president.

This is common knowledge. Everyone can tell from reading Lincoln’s second innaugural that he was a flaming Islamist.

There is now little doubt that Lincoln was born a gay, black muslim. No wonder he is the greatest President in American history.

It must be the “global warming” or the PCPs. Aren’t there wierdos out there who insist that both Jesus Christ and Abe Lincoln were gay?

The story of Abraham’s Lincolns birth to the unmarried house servant illegitimate daughter of a traveling spinner.

The story is that the Enloe family is from Rutherford County and that Nancy Hanks was an illegitimate daughter of a local woman, Lucy Hanks, who was an itinerant spinner. Nancy, they say, was taken in as a young girl to work in the large Abram Enloe household. The family later moved to Swain County when Nancy became pregnant. When Mrs. Abram Enloe banished the pregnant Nancy Hanks, Ms. Hanks returned to Bostic in Rutherford County and gave birth to little Abe in a cabin on Puzzle Creek. The Bostic claim further asserts that Mr. Enloe arranged for a local sawmill worker, Tom Lincoln, to marry Nancy and head for Kentucky. This story alleges that Tom Lincoln was stocky and low-browed and not very smart, and that one of Mr. Enloe’s legitimate sons, Wesley, looked a lot like the President.

http://www.carolinacountry.com/storypages/ourstories/abe/abe3.html

Wesley Enloe’s picture can be found here.

http://www.genealogytoday.com/us/lincoln/enlow-5.jpg

If Lincoln’s grandmother would have been a Muslim, she would have been stoned and Lincoln’s mother never would have been born. If Lincoln’s mother was a Muslim, then she would have been stoned and he never would have been born. And Tom Lincoln, without his arranged marriage, the unborn Abraham Lincoln would have found himself in the same position as our current unborn children, with no “right to life” if he were a Muslim.

For once I agree with the muzzies — everybody IS born a Muslim: crying, needing to be constantly fed and soothed, and no bowel/bladder control.

Sounds about right to me....

Omitted are core concepts like rape, beheading, stoning, vaginal mutilation, murder, lying, blowing people up, etc.
