Here's the perfect answer to "conservatives" who say Obama went to an "Islamic" school in Indonesia
Advertisements [?]
They'll ignore the fact that he went to a public school, and not an Islamic madrasa,
so don't even bother with that one.

However, when they start whining about his having been to an "Islamic" school, (and
you know how deep sixth grade indoctrination goes), just tell them that you are greatly
encouraged by the fact that they have FINALLY come around to our view that prayers and
religion do not belong in schools.

Be prepared to duck, just in case......
