Friend,

All I see in your posting is venom, rantings and ralings against OBAMA, but not one solid evidence as to his so called Muslim faith as you claim.

First you cite his middle name - HUSSEIN. For your information, especially among folks who take up the Christian faith as adults, it is common to retain traditional given names such as family names and middle names. This does not make you any less a christian (except for folks like you). In Bible times, no one changed their names just because they became Christians unless a new name signified something important with regard to what God has commissioned them to do. hence it is not unusual to see many Christians in Africa and the Middle East go by names such as Yussuf (or Yussef), Abdul, Nasir, Ali, Umar, etc. I even know pastors and preachers who have Muslim names. So I take it that you are either ignorant about these things or simply prejudiced.

Second, you blame Obama for nort protecting Jews, Christians and homosexuals but you fail to say exactly how he should do this when he has no constitutional powers to protect these folks. You tell me how any of the more vocal Pro-Jewish Senators or House members have protected Jews, Christians and homosexuals besides perhaps paying a symbolic visit to the Wailing Wall, or issuing Press releases. If this is the kind of protection you mean, I wonder how much it has helped Jews/Christians and Homosexuals. For your information, Barrack has on many ocassion voiced his opposition to the repressive regimes in Dafur, and elsewhere in Africa - many of these regimes are notoriously anti- Christian, anti-women, etc. When Obama visited his father's homeland of Kenya, he used the trip to highlight some of these issues. I really suggest you do some basic research before blogging and peddling inaccuracies. Your remarks sound like those of VP candidate Sarah Palin claiming that Obama wrote two memoirs and not one piece of legislation while in Illinois and in Washington. I hope this helps in your quests for the truth.
