I believe religion and politics should not mix. Obama does quote scripture (inaccurately) which I don't like. He goes to a radical church then lies about hearing or believing the radical message that comes out.. Why go if you don't believe what is being said.

I love his message of hope and change, but it seems so vacuous. He believes we can go have a sit down talk with -small insignificant- Iran as we are bigger. Foreign policy is not as simplified as he seems to want to make it. It is kind of scary that he would be our representative. Reagan didn't just successfully have a love in with Russia and end the cold war. It was the right time and we were in the right position . He compared his lets just talk about it with no prior conditions policy to other foreign policy that has nothing to do with his naive view.

The other strange fact of him being a muslim by birth (his father was a muslim) is that even if he doesn't care that he is a muslim by birth other muslims do. It is horrendous in islam to forget or to deny your islamic birthright.. He becomes an apostate and a real reason to have or to create the world jihad that fanatical muslims are so consumed with.
