People STILL THINK Obama Is a Muslim?!
Matt | On 24, Aug 2010
I’m sitting here shaking my head in disbelief at these statistics…
More people than ever now think that President Obama is a Muslim. This man has done everything short of turn water into wine and nail himself to the nearest cross to profess his love of the Risen Savior. Still, closed-minded people are STUCK on the fact that he “may” be a Muslim. Why???? He has stated and practiced as a Christian.
Pew Research released a poll saying 18 percent of Americans think Obama is a Muslim, a seven point increase from 2009. A Time poll has 24 percent of people in the “he may be a Muslim” boat. There are other facts and figures bouncing around that you can browse for yourself. I won’t bore you with the numbers right now.
Ignorance must be one helluva blissful situation.
The big question for me, which is rhetorical, is SO WHAT IF HE WAS A MUSLIM?! [He’s not, but still..] I’m totally not understanding this “if he’s a Muslim, this he’s bad argument.” I think it’s a slap in the face to practicing Muslims everywhere. What happened to religious freedom in the United States?
Maybe I keep up with news slightly more than the average person. And also, it could be because I’m Black. Or, it could be because I know real practicing Muslims who love and honor their faith. But, the Muslim argument has NEVER stuck to me. In fact, it makes me laugh. This is a biracial president who is a Christian. I don’t know how much clearer that can get. So he went to primary school in India? Children with INTERNATIONAL backgrounds do stuff like that. Have these people ever met an “army brat?” I know several.
It’s so sad that in a country of so many resources, people refuse to do even the most BASIC of research tasks to find out information. Sometimes you have to turn FOX News off, quit gossiping with your peeps, and hit the Internet and a library for FACTUAL news sources about topics. This Muslim B-S should have never entered the public psyche like this!
