As I understand it, Muslim men are prohibited from wearing any jewelry especially during Ramadan, as the wearing of jewelry is considered "haraam" which means forbidden or "Tashabuh bil nisa" which means dressing/trying to look like women."
So is this why Obama is SUDDENLY not wearing his custom made Indonesian wedding band--having worn it regularly until now? Considering Muslims are currently observing Ramadan is this just a coincidence or indicative of Obama's faith?
And how does one suddenly need to repair a wedding band?! That was the excuse given by a White House staffer! You'd think the POTUS could get band repaired instantly, or borrow a staffers band for the press conference! LOL
Yeah...it's a slow news day! :o)
Ring repaired my behind, if he is a Muslim he should not be ashamed to admit it. Unless, he just does not want us to know he lied about it.

He is not wearing his wedding band because.......of the picture that was taken of him and Michelle standing for the pledge and they both had their left hands over their heart. We knew it wasn't a reversed image because of the rings. So, if he makes the same mistake the ring won't give it away.
That's the best I can do off the cuff.
