On a completely different note; I must admit I'm having a lot of fun reading Conservapedia's article on Barack Hussein Obama.
I'm quoting my favs from the "Obama is likely to be first muslim president" section.
So he has muslims in his family?* Obama declared in prepared remarks, "The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country - I know, because I am one of them."
What's a muslim outlook, background and education?* Obama's background, education, and outlook are Muslim, and fewer than 1% of Muslims convert to Christianity.
He MUST be a muslim if he doesn't hate Islam, isn't that just marvelous?* He has said that "Islam can be compatible with the modern world."
Martin Luther King jr. has been an influence to me, but I wouldn't say I'm a baptist..* Obama stated that the autobiography of Malcolm X, a Nation of Islam leader who became a Muslim, inspired him in his youth.
Right. So I'm a muslim?* In the book Obama,"Renegade" his friends say that "he actually really wasn't much of a churchgoer."
Right..* On the campaign trail, Obama was reading "The Post-American World" by Fareed Zakaria, which is written from a Muslim point-of-view.
OH MY GOD! GEORGE W. BUSH IS A MUSLIM!* Contrary to Christianity, the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya encourages adherents to deny they are Muslim if it advances the cause of Islam.
Suprising when he didn't go out of his way to indicate that Islam was an enemy. Weird stuff.* Obama enjoyed a bigger increase in voter support in 2008 (compared to 2004) by Muslims than by any other voting group, including blacks; "Muslim turnout in the U.S. elections reached 95 percent, the highest Muslim turnout in U.S. history."
But good marks for consitency..
HE'S A MUSLIM ATHEIST! OH MY GOD!In the years 2000 through 2004, before becoming a United States Senator and being in the public spotlight, Obama gave 1% of his earnings to charity even though he made $250,000 per year. Since becoming a national figure, that amount has jumped to 6%. Obama's small donations are consistent with atheism and were perhaps influenced by his nonbelieving mother. It is well known that atheists give less per capita in donations than religious Americans.
