So last month people thought Obama was a Muslim, and now his Christianity is all over the news
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 04:21 PM by cindyw
Sorry people, but in the long run, this whole thing will help Obama. I mean, not the comments by his pastor, but the response he has had. His being a Christian is all over the news. Anyone paying enough attention to have heard the Muslim rumors, will surely hear this.

"On My Faith and My Church" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/barack-obama/on-my-faith-...

"Controversial minister off Obama's campaign" ("ministers" means christians) http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/03/14/obama.minister/i...

"Controversial minister leaves Obama campaign
Presidential candidate condemns words but not ministry of former pastor" (ministry, pastor) http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23634881 /

People know what these words mean. It will be pretty hard for anyone to suggest he is Muslim, when something like this has been so national.

10. Capitalization
Maybe because Christ is a name and Muslim is not?

7. As far as we know his Christianity is all over the news...
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 05:19 PM by Boojatta
but we can't be entirely sure of that any more than we can be sure that Obama isn't a Muslim.

For example, maybe ordinary news makes no mention of Obama and Christianity. Maybe anyone who visits DU no longer receives the regular news, but instead receives special news. After you visit DU, a crew may visit your home and install special equipment in any radio or TV that you possess so that the regular signals are not received and other signals are substituted for the regular signals.

8. Not necessarily so
Yesterday at a family party, one of the in-laws of the other side was starting to rant about how she watched Obama's pastor on TV saying these vile things "calling all of us white trash" and then she says..."well you know he is a Muslim". That did it...I looked into the other room where she was and told her he was not a Muslim and it wouldn't matter if he was since there is freedom of religion in the United States, how about thinking about what she was saying for a change. Then she proceeded to tell me he was "uppity"... I felt like I was in the south in the 1950's. My sister-in-law about lost it laughing, said "I don't mind being called white trash". Anyway the "lady" in question then decided it was time for a quick outdoor break to smoke. When she came back in there was no more political talk from her. Mind you, this was all at a 3 year olds birthday party! Sometimes I wonder if I can make it to November.

11. It will certainly not hurt him against McCain.
That man has some very, scary religious folk around him that will make Obama's former pastor look downright sheepish by comparison.
