Quote# 76068

(Ironically, the article was from LiveScience entitled 'Clues to Obama's Muslim Problem', regarding the psychological effects of priming in developing an irrational belief.)

True Clues to Obama's Muslim Problem"

1. The "my muslim faith" interview slip up with Snufflelufogus, and quick correction by Snuffles. When have you as a Christian ever make such a mistake?

2. Calling the Koran, the "Holy Koran". What Christian ever refers to another religions' book as "Holy"? We only call one book Holy, the Holy Bible. When we refer to other religious books we just call them their name.

3. The muslim call to prayer being one of the prettiest sounds on earth. Do you as a Christian believe that?

4. Three times a day Obama goes into a separate room in the White House without anyone else for a short period of time. Muslims outside of islamic lands can instead of havign to pray five times a day, can if they are outside islamic lands instead pray three times a day. And yes Michelle goes into a separate room and does the same thing.

5. Bowing to the Saudi King as a subject under Islam.

6. Regular interviews with old school buddies explaining how Obama was a devout muslim, discussing how he would pray in their families' prayer rooms in Indonesia (the largest muslim country on earth).

7. Being registered at the St Francis Assisi school in Indonesia as a muslim. Parents could choose to register kids either as Christians or Muslims.

8. Remember the first dog being flown on a separate jet? What do muslims think of dogs? Perhaps we can see why it took over 6 months for him to even pick one?

9. What Obama is doing to the US Bank system. Punishment for not having sharia law lending practices, collecting interest, etc.

10. First thing in office, dropping every govt agency from using 'islamic fanatics' from their vocabularies.

11. Most of his family is muslim. Discussed in his book about that, discussed how proud he was of his brother converting to islam.

12. The Egyptian Foreign Minister, Adul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, where the US President told him that He was still a Muslim

13. Anything else I can pull out of my ass & make up.

14. He's the anti-crisp.

...Praise Jeebus & the Wholly Dribble!

4. Three times a day Obama goes into a separate room in the White House without anyone else for a short period of time.

It's called a bathroom.

Since most of the other crazy's been hit - Muslims are indecisive about dogs?

Sounds like Obama needs more fibre in his diet.

True clues to "Kate"s fundie behavior.

1. She believes made up shit.

2. She adds paranoid delusional significance to mundane facts.

9/16/2010 5:03:10 AM


What is it with you people and lists?

Obama is a Christian. Get over it.

Besides, what difference does it make? Per the US Constitution, Muslims aren't barred from public office (or anything else) in the US.

9/16/2010 5:47:40 AM


Let's say he is. So fucking what? Seriously, why would that be such a huge deal? "No religious test for office" ring a bell? Of course not. Just like the Bible, you like to cherrypick the Constitution.

Doubting Thomas

What I would like to know is how "Kate" knows that the Obamas retreat into a private room three times a day. Either this was a claim made up on some anti-Obama website or she's pulling it out of her ass.

And if he really did say "my Muslim faith," why are there no video clips of it on the internet? I know all the tea partiers would be sharing it all over the place.

As far as bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia, at least he didn't kiss him like GW Bush did.

And lastly, even if Obama were a Muslim, who the fuck cares? He has the right to be if he wants. And the U.S. Constitution prevents the president or anyone else establishing any religion as law.

9/16/2010 6:42:08 AM


I would love to pull your toenails out, may I?

9/16/2010 6:46:25 AM

Zeus Almighty

Yeah ... that's why he sent all those extra troops to Afghanistan to KILL MUSLIMS. Oh, and he's kept the drone attack program that, again, kills Muslims, often innocent ones.
Fucking douche.

9/16/2010 6:47:55 AM


I weep at the thought that this retard can vote.

"5. Bowing to the Saudi King as a subject under Islam."

Even Dumbya had to bow to King Abdullah. And not only that:

No doubt Dumbya had to bow to King Abdullah more than once. Kissing his arse during the eight years he was president, just to keep you lot in oil.

Argument destroyed, much? One more thing: 'Obama a Muslim', as you teabaggers claim. O RLY?:

Argument annihilated, much?

9/16/2010 7:19:40 AM

@Doubting Thomas:

It was a small slip when he was repeatedly being asked about his Muslim faith. So he talked about his faith and because all of the accusations were still in his mind he accidentally said my Muslim faith instead of my Christian faith but corrected himself soon after. It's nothing more than a mere distraction working itself in your speech because you are focused on what peole are saying. For the idiots like Kate however, it's somehow a confession, instead of what it is: a small useless slip due to intense pressure.

Mrs. Antichrist

1) Taking quotes out of context is fun, isn't it? He was referencing claims about his supposed Muslim faith and denying them. Watch the whole interview, you dolt.
2) Politicians will refer to religious texts in respectful terms in order to suck up to demographics and make themselves appear tolerant. It has nothing to do with their own religion.
3) I'm an atheist, and I find the Adhan quite lovely.
4) Prove it. Also, the stuff about only having to pray three times a day only applies when one is traveling long distances. If they're within the country they live in, even a non-Muslim one, they still have to pray five times a day.
5) It wasn't a full bow, merely a polite dip of the head. Americans sucking up to the Saudis is hardly unusual, anyway.
6) Prove it.
7) If this is true, it's likely due to having been registered under his father's name and religion. His father would have been considered a Muslim under the law based on his parent's religion, even if he no longer practiced the faith. In many countries, the government requires that one declare which of the officially recognized faiths they're a part of in order to go to school, get a job, get ID, etc., and more often than not, they'll automatically assign a faith to a person based on what their parents were labeled as.
8) According to Hadith, keeping a dog in the house can bring a curse upon the household, even if it's separated from the rest of the family. If he was a devout Muslim, he wouldn't have adopted one at all. Flying a dog on a separate jet is certainly something worth criticizing, but only because it's a waste of fuel and man-power.
9) Even if he was intentionally trying to destroy the bank system (and trust me, he isn't), it's still a leap to say that he's doing so because he wants Sharia imposed. Maybe he's just mad that Arrested Development was canceled.
10) Because he wants to repair relations with Muslims. Heaven forbid a president be interested in peace.
11) So? Most of my family is Christian yet I'm an atheist, and there's nothing wrong with being happy for a loved one who finds happiness via religion, even if it's different than your own.
12) Can Adul Gheit prove that this actually happened?

9/16/2010 7:24:47 AM


I'm going to do that thing where I focus on one aspect of the quote because I'd be writing a novel if I tried to rebut all of them. "Muslims hate dogs/can't have dogs" is such an oversimplification. Yes, there are hadiths about dogs being unclean, but Bedouin have always used hunting dogs. Muhammad himself had hunting dogs. Basically, if you needed a dog, there was an exemption. There are even certain breeds of dog that were developed or preserved in the Muslim Middle East.


9/16/2010 8:15:14 AM


More like:

1. He's black
2. His middle name

9/16/2010 8:23:47 AM


And yet, he's a Christian.... funny, that. You're just upset because "there's a nigger in the White House"!

9/16/2010 8:24:28 AM



Nice one. I'll see your Saluki, and raise "Kate" this:

And not only invalid, her 'argument' is nonexistent.

9/16/2010 8:39:59 AM



Ironically, I have an aunt who raises and shows Salukis who is total right winger and would likely go along with every point on this list.

9/16/2010 9:28:36 AM


Most convservatives I know would say how it's obvious he's a liberal because he treats their dog well enough tp put him on his own plane instead of stuffing him in cargo.

The rest is just bat-shit nonsense.

9/16/2010 10:04:41 AM


Mrs. Antichrist: The dog story is an exaggeration. The dog shared the jet with a bunch of assistants and other members of Obama's staff.

If I recall correctly it was because the Air Force One was too big for the closest airport or something. The whole thing is on snopes.com under politicans/obama

9/16/2010 10:14:41 AM


@Doubting Thomas
And if he really did say "my Muslim faith," why are there no video clips of it on the internet? I know all the tea partiers would be sharing it all over the place.

When Obama said this phrase, he was talking about the smear campaign done in McCain's name about his "being a Muslim." What he said was something along the lines of: "McCain himself has not been slinging accusations about my 'Muslim faith'."

He wasn't saying that he was a Muslim, but that other people were saying he was. Of course, it's been quote-mined to oblivion.

You can find this interview on YouTube by searching for "Obama Stephanopoulos". Warning! Do not read any comments if you value your sanity.

Martha Jones

The majority of my family is Roman Catholic, does that automatically make me a Roman Catholic? No. I'm a Roman Pagan, actually.

Of course, you wouldn't know the difference.

9/16/2010 10:59:17 AM


What problem? Even if he was Muslim, it is not a problem. YOU are the one with the problem.

9/16/2010 11:26:40 AM

Joe Mama

Expect the "Obama is a Muslim" crap to be revived and rehashed to death again in 2012 during the presidential campaign.
