That he is a Muslim ABSOLUTELY MATTERS! We are a nation based upon Judeo Christian ethics, wherein religion and matters of state are kept as separate as possible. Islam is more than a religion; it is an ideology...a way of life that extends its influence into activities of daily living, relationships, punishment, dietary restrictions, and mercilessness, amongst countless other areas. Islam, in many ways, is diametrically opposed to Judaism and Christianity. Bill Federer of World Net Daily compared the ways of Christ to the ways of Mohammad back in February....the differences were so stark as to be hilarious and alarming simultaneously. You libs constantly try to distort the facts in order to soft peddle Islam as just one more peaceful faith. It is a violent faith when one looks at it orthodxically, studies the Koran, the Surah, and the Hadith, and is honest with oneself and others.

Don't worry, we won't call you politically incorrect or declare you a racist! Obama studied and practiced Islam for 2 to 3 years in Indonesia during the CRITICAL AND FORMATIVE YEARS OF HIS LIFE. He committed not one but TWO Freudian slips on "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" a few months back when he referred to his Muslim faith....George corrected him once and he persisted again...until he realized that he was being given an "out" by George to "correct" his statement to contain Christianity.

Let's for one moment examine Black Liberation Theology for those of you plants who Obama sent here to fight with people like me. Assume incorrectly that Obama subscribes to BLT. Liberation theology was condemned by the Catholic Church years ago as manifestly wrong...a perturbation of Vatican II that gave Communists/Socialists the wrong impression that Christ supported their tenets. Lt is as Godless a faith as one can create and still be based on a faith. Furthermore, it thrives in a Communist setting and is violent....and espouses violence as forgivable and necessary under certain circumstances.

So you see, BLT or Islam...both violent and both militant, and both very similar when one reviews issues point by point...where does that leave Obama...with one foot in one and one foot in the other.

Finally, there is one more hurdle to get over when it comes to Obama espousing his faith and integrating his beliefs and tendancies into our United States policies. He has to get by me and others like me. I will protect our Nation's JudeoChristian ethics TO THE DEATH..and there are lots of like-minded lovers of American-style LIBERTY in line with me. You libs need some self-education. Pick up a copy of Robert Spencer's tomo on Mohammad, or better yet..Islam...Religion of Peace? Trust me...you'll be enlightened and have a true appreciation for just how bizarre and dangerous an Obama presidency will be, especially as regards the future of Israel without a dependable ally.

When Israel decimates Iran's nukes between now and Inauguration, it will be interesting to see how little help Obama gives Netanyahu. Muslim Obama or Murtadd Obama...it doesn't matter...he subscribed to a militant reverend's teaching for 20-years and wants Islam to prevail the world over...something I also pledge to battle against until death. You guys elected a dangerous empty suit ...you guys need to learn the hard way. So you see..his faith truly DOES MATTER!
