Every time I get on the internet, people are forwarding all the crap out there about Obama being a muslim one way or another. That because he has a muslim parent and may have been exposed to the religion as a young child he is supposed to secretly be some "American-hating muslim." This means that if you profess to be a christian and were anything else before you found Jesus, even just a "heathen," your conversion cannot possibly be valid. If you forward this crap AND spend time trying to "convert" others to your christianity, please stop, because according to the spam-forward-ers, no one can receive god and mean it. You can't have it both ways, people. And isn't it judging to profess to know what is in someone else's heart? Isn't that prohibited in the handbook?Answer Question

If he is a Muslim and is hiding it, it's a very valid concern! It's no big deal if he's open about his beliefs, but if he's hiding it, what's not concerning about that? For the record, the constitution allowed freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion, if you don't like it, don't read it!

Great post, Roachiesmom! Though I'm sure those who are ignorant won't appreciate it. <sigh>
To Anonymous above:
There is no reason to hide being a Muslim. Whether to be a Muslim or not is a decision made by each individual, and Obama has clearly not made that decision since he has been a church-goer for many years. If he actually claimed to be Muslim, given his history and actions, Muslims wouldn't even believe it. Part of being a Muslim includes openly declaring your faith as a Muslim, not going around pretending you aren't one!
