Hope, change and...

...my beads are holier than your beads...

A substantial and growing number of Americans say that Barack Obama is a Muslim, while the proportion saying he is a Christian has declined.

More than a year and a half into his presidency, a plurality of the public says they do not know what religion Obama follows.
Oh, c'mon... it's not like he's gonna lie about it.

In Islam, however, there is no such thing as a half-Muslim. Like all monotheistic religions, Islam is an exclusive faith. 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.

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).
Yikes.

Under taqiwa, it is okay for Muslims to lie to non-Muslims to help Allah.

Why doesn't he just come out and declare emphatically that he has denounced his muslim heritage and has converted entirely to Christianity?

the thing is... any way obama plays this... he loses.

if it indeed says muslim on his long-form certificate, it is something that he has gone to extreme lengths to conceal from the american public.

given the furor over the ground zero mosque... it is apparent that this would have been enough to prevent him from being elected president.

otoh, under muslim religious law there is no such thing as converting to another religion. it would, in many islamic countries, earn you a death sentence. at minimum, he would be seen by all the world's muslims as a heretic.

the real problem here though, isn't the religious implications... it's that he apparently is still working furiously to cover this up.

ask slick willie clinton... it ain't the bj that kills you... it's the cover-up.
