Something to Think About


A couple of weeks ago I received one those emails that church people love to forward - you know, the one about how Barack Hussein Obama is really a covert Muslim, that he is constantly in communication with his militant cousin in Kenya, and that, if he assumes office, he will unleash a pseudo jihad/race war in the United States. Conservative political commentators aren't so bold, but their constant use of the name "Hussein" suggests an ominous Muslim threat - as does this picture which was flashed on TV as to suggest Obama being initiated into Al Quaeda. I've also heard it touted that our enemies (Islamists) consider him "their candidate." I think this is complete nonsense. Here's why:

Because of his father's status as a Muslim, Barack Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law. His mother's Christian status is without consequence. It makes things worse for him - being half Muslim/half Christian; half black/half white is abominable to Muslims. Islamic law regards conversion from Islam as a crime/sin worse than murder. Anyone who converts from Islam to another religion is to be executed (preferably beheaded by a cleric). It's open season on that person's life. That person is not to be protected or sheltered, and anyone who kills them cannot be prosecuted. If Barack Obama becomes the U.S. President he will be hated in the Islamic world ten times more than Bush is hated, because he is a Muslim who converted to Christianity. Their candidate? I think not!

Well I agree with you that if a militant Muslim is true to their philosophy then they cannot support Obama, but that does not necessarily mean that they will be and there are many different types of Muslims in the world with various interpretations of the Quran so I could see how a Muslim could support Obama. Nevertheless, I do think that the people who are pulling out the Muslim card as an excuse not to vote for him really do not know what they are talking about.

Even if Obama said he was a card carrying Muslim (I don't know if they really carry cards... or what the cards would say!) my concern is his socialist (marxist) views of government and society and his level of experience dealing with international events. The latter can be handled by choosing a good staff. Note I said a good staff, not like these hacks working for Bush! However, the socialist views won't be cleared up so easily.

Just a few thoughts...

I agree. His policies may endear him to people who are opposed to American values and way of life (the Muslim world and Western Europe). This is ironic, and just one way of saying the election this year is VERY complicated!
