Since when was being christian part of the requirements for being president?
I don't see the difference between him being a muslim or a christian.

He holds the same job as the 43 men before him, to serve, lead, and protect our country.

Personally, I wish he or team would not even dignify half of these accusations with a response, they are in fact undeserving of a thought let alone words.

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.--The Presidential Oath of Office.

I do not see anything about I promise to be a Christian, I promise to reaffirm my Christianity publicly daily, I promise to engage in silly internet arguments with people who can't tell their ass from their elbow on an hourly basis.

However I may feel about him personally, is irrelevant to the fact that he is the one that won the election. He is our President and we would be far better served by letting him discuss actual problems that face our country and solutions to those problems, versus something that has debunked, REPEATEDLY.

Well he better. He's going to need otherworldly help to get America out of the trouble it's in now. Let's just hope his dog doesn't tell him to go to war with Iran.

No sorry...not an extensive one...but give me 24 hours and I will make you a "nice list of liberties removed"



Really? You need a WHOLE day to think of liberties removed? It took me about 5 seconds to jot down the liberties Bush removed from us.

A whole day for finding something bad Obama did?

Outstanding!!! We'll be waiting.

Well, the topic at hand is Obama's religion. If that doesn't concern then fine.

Name one thing that Obama has done that limited or eroded our rights further than Bush?

I see someone already suggested this. Omit if you like.

I'll agree with you on that one. I'm very much against organized religion. But if you're set on something to believe in...go for it. Doesn't matter to me..

In fact, even if Obama was a Muslim...who cares? Why tear down a man for his faith? This is America...we must accept our fellow citizens for their beliefs.

I'd be kind of excited actually. The first black AND Muslim president? We have certainly progressed into a better America. That's for sure.

But really, he's a Christian.

What a pathetic government we have that feels the need to crow our President's religion from the rooftops.

I for one am disgusted his religion is being discussed at all.

Who cares?

All that matters is he run our country properly.

When will our constitution be properly upheld and a complete separation of church and state take place?

While we are discussing our President's religion what are we missing in REAL News that Matters?

First off, Barack is not a Muslim. He is indeed a Christian...but perhaps not an active one like the article may make him out to be.

His father was Muslim and his mother was Atheistic.


But there seems to be a problem beginning right there. Read the following:

source


As the son of the Muslim father, Senator Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law as it is universally understood. It makes no difference that, as Senator Obama has written, his father said he renounced his religion. Likewise, under Muslim law based on the Koran his mother’s Christian background is irrelevant.

Of course, as most Americans understand it, Senator Obama is not a Muslim. He chose to become a Christian, and indeed has written convincingly to explain how he arrived at his choice and how important his Christian faith is to him.

His conversion, however, was a crime in Muslim eyes; it is “irtidad” or “ridda,” usually translated from the Arabic as “apostasy,” but with connotations of rebellion and treason. Indeed, it is the worst of all crimes that a Muslim can commit, worse than murder (which the victim’s family may choose to forgive).



Keep at it ATS...once upon a time this was a site to deny ignorance...not promote it.


Some of us are still doing our part!

How about the freedom to not have any medical insurance?

Sure I heard something about fines for people who don't have medial insurance....maybe I'm wrong...and I don't mind being proved/admitting I am

THIS IS NOT MY "nice list of liberties removed"

Barack can be born a Muslim...doesn't mean he still is...or doesn't mean he even followed Islam throughout this life.

I was born and raised Catholic. Baptized and Confirmed. Now, I'm an Atheist.

Being born something doesn't mean jack.

But good point though!! Star for you.

I knew there was a reason the I Dreamed of Jeanie. EXACTLY. Is his religion going to change the fact that he's the CiC? Is anything that's said now going to change policy that has already been enacted? NO! Discussing crud like this takes away from the fact that he's screwing the country like his predecessors did for the MIC. THAT'S what we should be talking about.

As unfortunate as it is for me, I currently do not medical insurance and no one has come knocking my door I am free to fall ill or injured and die.

I'd prefer for that not to be the case though

You claim having health insurance (a Right) is considered losing liberty?

I don't think I understand the logic in that argument.

And how many American't's is there? 300m?

I don't care what religion this guy believes. I only care what he can fix, what he messed up, and what he doesn't fix. I don't care if he is a Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Jew, or Christian. As long as his policies don't screw everything (here recently he's made bold and bad decisions) I really don't care.
