Who Cares? One who has been lied to... Again

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: who ... cares

Submitted by Gawfer (United States), Jun 14, 2008 at 11:11

The question of who cares regarding whether Barry was raised a Muslim or not can be answered on multiple fronts.

Firstly, by acknowledging these points of fact that were provided regarding his upbringing, it directly implicates him as a liar:

"...There is one thing that I want to mention that I think is important. Part of what we've been seeing during the course this campaign is some scurrilous e-mails that have been sent out, denying my faith, talking about me being a Muslim..., "I have never practiced Islam..." Barack Obama.

Secondly, by being considered "...murtadd (apostate), an ex-Muslim converted to another religion who must be executed...", how can he expect to bring any legitimacy to the table when addressing hostile nations such as Iran, Syria, Yemen, etc.? Neither he nor his cabinet will be speaking from a voice of authority, and if we think our current administration has failed, to quote that great 70's group BTO, "you ain't seen nothin' yet".

Thirdly, he brings a religion to the Whitehouse that has been, since our existence, hostile to the ideology this country was founded on and the constitution based on: The Inalienable rights of Freedom.

Frankly, I'd prefer a president with a little less baggage to lead my country.
