in response to reader comment: Islamic roots of Obama

Who cares...it is just a team....like the 49ers, the Jets, or the Falcons. Religion is for people who think their team is the best but In reality governments use them to vie for for resources.

Barack Obama is not Muslim because, he says so. Does he think that Muslims are all evil ....no. Does he think that Israelis and Jews are all goodness...of course not. He thinks that there are good and evil among all groups and that your religion is not a limnus test for loyalty. Loyalty generally comes from those who have the most resources. People align with the team that is going to win. Obama is not one of those people that thinks that his religion is the only way for redemption. He admits that his Mother was not Christian. George Bush found Jesus and he believes that only when one finds Jesus then you will have redemption. Obviously Jews and Israel do not believe in that philosophy but they went along with George Bush because they want the resources that the US government provides.

That is the only reason that Pakistan changed loyalty after Sept 11th. ...
