The interesting thing to me is not the charge he is Muslim--there are no religious tests for office in this country--but rather that he was untruthful in his book.
Also, the goat-herding reference in his convention speech has always seemed doubtful to me.
But in the end, there is enough in Barack's voting record to prove to voters he is unfit for their support.
He pretends to be a Catholic and has some controversial friends here in Chicago:
* Here's from wikipedia on Obama, but there's more at the link:
Barack Obama was born at the Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. His parents were economist Barack Obama, Sr., of Kenya and S. Ann Dunham, a Honolulu resident who was born in Kansas. At the time of Obama's birth, both his parents were students at the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
When Obama was two years old, the couple was divorced and Ann Obama then married another East-West Center student from Indonesia. The family then moved to Jakarta, where Obama's half-sister Maya was born (another half-sister, the daughter of Obama's father by a later marriage, lives in Nairobi). When Obama was ten, he returned to Hawaii under the care of his grandmother Madelyn Dunham. He was enrolled in the fifth grade at Punahou School, a prestigious academy that once taught the Hawaiian royal family. There he graduated with honors.
Obama reflected on his years in Hawaii and wrote, "The irony is that my decision to work in politics, and to pursue such a career in a big Mainland city, in some sense grows out of my Hawaiian upbringing, and the ideal that Hawaii still represents in my mind."
Spent time in both Muslim and Catholic schools In Indonesia
In the Muslim school, the teacher wrote to tell mother I made faces during Koranic studies.
In the Catholic school, when it came time to pray, I'd pretend to close my eyes, then peek around the room. Nothing happened. No angels descended. Just a parched old nun and 30 brown children, muttering words. Sometimes the nun would catch me, and her stern look would force my lids back shut. But that didn't change how I felt inside.

Falsani quotes lefty activist, Roman Catholic Fr. Michael Pfleger , of St. Sabina Church on Chicago's South Side, "I always have felt in [Obama] this consciousness that, at the end of the day, with all of us, you've got
to face God. Faith is key to his life, no question about it. [It is] central to who he is, and not just in his work in the political field, but as a man, as a black man, as a husband, as a father.... I don't think he could easily
divorce his faith from who he is."
Can we get back to the issues, please? This guy is very, very liberal, as can be shown by his voting record (abortion). Fortunately, Keyes is too smart for these other tactics.
Not necessarily. Through Christ, all things are possible. If He can pay for our sins with His blood and rise from the dead, He can certainly soften the heart of a Muslim.
I've been exchanging private e-mails here with an Osama supporter who is obsessed with promoting the idea that "Osama" is an "African" name and that his father was not Mohammedan.
The Osama supporters must believe that this would damage him.
I am wondering if anyone else on this thread is getting nasty Freepmail, calling them a liar. The poster signs his name, Kalkiavataram.
Your quoting our liberal rag?
Why thats like saying the NYT is gospel!

" Because so many people in today's world have questions about the Muslim faith, and because it has been stated that your parents and grandparents are Muslims, that you bear a Muslim name, in fact, but that you profess to be a Christain, would you be willing to assure those you might represent that you do not view the Christains and Jewish peoples ( along with other non-muslim faiths) of America as infidels? Would you be willing to say so in a direct statement?"
This is poorly worded, by you catch my drift, I'm sure. I know I would like to ask him a question about his heritage, why not? If we are the sum of our experiences, then this matters in today's world of creeping terrorism.
Got an freemail from the Osama supporter, too. Funny how the muslims are out in force trying to tell people that Obama/Osama ISN'T a muslim. Obama/Osama is their #1 sleeper it seems and he's just been outed.
All you need to know not to vote for Obama:
Well, he is going to have a hard time convincing anyone that Obama is not a Muslim, like I said it is the default assumption of anyone who first hears his name that he is a Muslim. I thought he was a Muslim (or least NOI/Kwesi Mfume wannabes) when I first heard of him.
BTTT! This pic of yours is getting much play ;)
