So what if he is, who cares? No one should know or care what the religion of the president or any other elected official is. That is, or should be, a private matter. Church and state are supposed to be separated so the religion of anyone serving the state is irrelevant.
During the campaign his opposition made a great big damn deal out of Obama’s CHRISTIAN minister who made statements, of his own free will, which were somehow Obama’s fault. And you think he is a Muslim because? Do you think the church he attended is a Mosque in disguise? Or is it that you don’t freaking THINK? Not a day goes by that I don’t hear someone accusing Obama of being a Muslim. Yeah I get that the accusers are stupid, but here is what irks me even more. The denials coming from his supporters, who should be saying what I started out with: so what. It reminds me of a video clip I saw, during the race for the oval office; a woman said to McCain that Obama was an Arab, to which McCain replied, “No, he’s not he is a good family man.” Does this mean an Arab cannot be a good family man? This is of course a rhetorical question because we’re talking about McCain here who has the brains of a crayon (I don’t know why I said crayon, it was the first thing that jumped into my head).
We have freedom of religion in this country on paper but in real life, where the idiots live, we have freedom of religion as long as you happen to be a christian (yep, I didn’t capitalize it, it was deliberate). If you are anything but christian you are not part of the mainstream. If you are a Jew, a Muslim, a Buddhist, or any number of religions that are NOT christian you are an outsider. As a kid you are an outsider in public schools where they give time off for christian holidays, recite the NEW and improved version of the pledge of allegiance; now fortified with god for the health of your soul. Other public functions that should be separated by church and state start with some sort of prayer, benediction, or reference to god.
Oh, I almost forgot, one of my favorites is when I find myself in a conversation with someone I barely know or just met and they begin talking about jesus (again not capitalized on purpose) or church, or the lord, in a way that assumes I am on board with this crap. When this happens I want to gouge the eyes out of their heads and cut out their tongues, but until eye-gouging and tongue-ectomies are legalized, I just stand there and let my eyes glaze over while I imagine how much fun it would be.
Christianity (capitalized here only because it starts the sentence, but written with an equal amount of disdain) is being forced down our collective throats more and more and I am getting REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, tired of it. I’m not telling you not to be christians, but could you please keep it to yourselves; the rest of us aren’t interested and if we ever are we know where to go to sign up. Like convenience stores and Starbucks, there are churches on every corner.
People, I’m talking to you, christians. Obama probably is not a Muslim, as if it is any of your business. He was in fact born in the USA and who the hell do you all think you are demanding to see his birth certificate? I’m going to go out on a limb here because I don’t know this for a fact, but I’m guessing that to be eligible for the job of president you have to, at some point during the process, produce a birth certificate, and that Obama’s was in fact shown to the proper parties, so give it a rest. I bet you respond to that by asserting the birth certificate is a fake and it is all a conspiracy, by the Islamic religion, to take over our nation. Oh, if it were only that easy to quash christianity.
During the Obama v McCain run for office no one questioned McCain’s citizenship even though he was born in Panama. And do you know why? Because the progressives and the liberals are a bit smarter than you guys and have a whole lot more common sense. If it had been Obama who was born in Panama, THEN it would have been an issue. As I am writing this, another possibility occurs to me. Some of the birthers probably don’t know Hawaii is a state. The reason I say this is because I live in Arizona and, in the course of my work, I have talked with people from every part of the U.S. and you would be amazed (or maybe you wouldn’t) at the number of people who don’t know that Arizona and New Mexico are states.
This country is in trouble. The economy is imploding, people are without jobs, food, homes, and hope. Our infrastructure is crumbling. The political climate in this country is becoming ever more and more divided and the political climate of the world is unstable at best and your biggest worry is how or to whom the President worships? Are you guys really that dumb? Do you really believe all that bullshit or are you just grasping at straws because we have a black president and that is your worst nightmare? Even if he is Muslim, that’s not going to get him thrown out of office so, nice try.
People, you need to smarten up, so here is a suggestion. Take a big heavy book, if you own one, if not a brick will do. OK now give your head a real hard smack with it and hopefully that will get some blood flowing to your rapidly atrophying brains.
