LOTS of us Care!

in response to reader comment: WHO CARES!

The point is not that we care what religion he once (or currently) practices, but that he's LYING about it. His middle name is Hussein (Muslim, I believe!), but why is he so ashamed of it? Case in point: Sheriff Mike Scott of Lee County Florida introduced Sarah Palin at a rally, and called Obama by his full given name. This was against the wishes of Obama and his campaign camp. Why would that be? If he's that ashamed of his name, he needs to change it. If he doesn't want to renounce his Muslim religion by changing his name, then the public should be free to call him by that name; he can't have it both ways! His thought process on subjects like this is what truly scares me and a lot of other people.
