President Obama will make the first visit during his presidency to a U.S. mosque next week, the White House announced Saturday, as the administration tries to promote religious tolerance at a time when rhetoric linking Islam with terrorism is becoming more voluminous.

On Wednesday the president will visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore, a sprawling community center in the the city’s western suburbs, that serves thousands of people with a place of worship, a housing complex and schools, (according to its website). It is one of the Mid-Atlantic region’s largest Muslim centers and describes itself as aspiring “to be the anchor of a growing Muslim community with diverse backgrounds, democratically governed, relating to one another with inclusiveness and tolerance, and interacting with neighbors in an Islamic exemplary manner.”

This POTUS has a very limited use for religious diversity.......relating to one another with inclusiveness and tolerance, and interacting with neighbors in an Islamic exemplary manner.”...would that Islamic exemplary manner be Sharia Law?

Me thinks this Obama is muddled in his thinking......or, is he is a non-practicing Muslim?

My guess is that he will attend, hear a message then announce that he has converted.

this will be one of the most closely observed visits of his presidency....if, of course, cameras are allowed.

will he be allowed to say prayers with the muslims?

if so, will he participate?

how will his arabic be? will he remember the prayer?

rhetoric linking Islam with terrorism

I never hear that rhetoric in the mainstream media. What I always hear after a terrorist attack is that the attacker was probably a Christian or a conservative. When they are surprised to discover that the attacker was Muslim, they always point out that the attack had nothing to do with Islam. I don't hear any rhetoric at all linking the Religion of Peace to these mass murders that are carried out in the name of Islam by those who do not understand Islam's peaceful nature.

As regards all those expensive White House throw rugs, most of them are probably Moslem “prayer” rugs— yes. But the little rug in the Oral Office might still be Billy’s rug for Monica (should be sent to the smithsonian?)

Obama, just go ahead and leave your secret service guys at home. None of your brothers at the Mosque would try to hurt you.

Pfft...probably has one set up in the Oval Office. Not that the MSM would ever tell you that.
