Obama's "taqqiyah"?

Hmmm. I would think, if Obama had been practicing "taqqiyah" for the last thirty years, that somewhere there would be evidence of Obama slinking off to the occaisional mosque.

I believe the likelyhood/danger lies more in after he becomes President - as vacillating as Obama is on everything from foreign policy to partial-birth abortion, I think there is a not-unlikely chance Obama might have a "change of heart" and once again "find the religion" of his childhood. This could only be feasible once he's in office.

Retro-active "taqqiyah".

Although stranger things have happened.
