Wow .I was sent to Pipes by a friend this morning and I thought I would take a look at the Obama/Islam ongoing controversy,, since I blog on Obama and ongoing politics. I am not a supporter, let's up it that way, but the most amazing thing I read on the "thread" was that Obama obviously when he was a child was exposed to Islam, kind like a Catholic,, beinig raised in a nominally Catholic, or Jew in a in mixed marriage, where church going is not a regular habit because of the controversy . whatever, you get the idea.... here in this country this is within normal limits, as we say in medicine.. many families don't attend church except in HOLY HOLIDAYS, yep the old Easter Sunday, type like I have turned into..

but what I noted that was scary is the Obama is considered an "apostate" by the Islam,, wow. he is in even more danger than I ever realized.. that is really sick in reality,

and yes, the religion of ANYONE running for the highest office in the land, President is extremely important and it can make or break a candidate,, as everyone knows, and it would be entirely NOT appropriate for a practicing Muslim to be the President, because Islam is not just a "religion" it is a total way of life, imbuing every aspect of their lives, down to the clothes the women are forced to wear,the men praying on the rugs around the clock,, and men having more than one wife,, and practicing polygamy,, not very American,, and as far as Muslims having a clue as to how our Healthcare system should work,, HELLO, that is a Blog into itself. considering in their Koran, part of their Healthcare practices are to remove body parts as punishment for "infractions"..

Is that enough as to why we should care?.
