Obama is a hard-core Christian convert from Islam

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Obama does not even know what religion he is

Submitted by miamidot (Israel), Sep 14, 2008 at 11:19

It is very hard to come by in American politics nowadays, somebody who has no idea what his/her religion is. Such a person is a rare jewel, a sincere case of separating state from church or in Obama's case, state-from-mosque. Such a politician is to be treasured and admired. His/her words are to be treated as gold untainted by religion.

But Obama is not such a person. He is a hard-core Christian convert from Islam. Just like many hard-core Christians who find their former religion so repulsive that they find all means and ways to selectively forget those memories.

On the other hand,

How could we support a VP candidate who does not know if she had ever supported the bridge to nowhere?
How could we support a VP candidate who does not know where/what the bridge would have led to?
How could we support a VP candidate who does not know if she had ever visited her guard troops in Iraq?
How could we support a VP candidate who does not know that when she visited Ireland, she actually did not "visit Ireland" but that her plane had merely made a pit stop?

How could we support a VP candidate whose only idea of Russia is by stepping on an island off Alaska and looking across the strait?

How could we support a VP candidate who had no idea what Bush's preemptive doctrine is? But, I forgive and admire her for that - because it would be good for any future Prex or VP should never know what that is.
