It just bugs me to no end how ridiculous some discussions are with my fundamental Evangelical brothers and sisters about Obama. One thing that gives me an extreme case of BS allergies, is how the far right conservatives are so persistent about President Obama secretly being a Muslim.
It amazes me the depth of some of the beliefs out there. One end of the spectrum is the slight suspicion that he acts like he adores Islamic people more than Americans – to the other end of the spectrum where he is a planted terrorist plotting our doom (or actually being the antichrist himself).
Are these people for real? Do they really think this?
The sad answer to that question is that many do, and are willing to vote for anyone accept the antichrist.
I look at this theory that Obama is a Muslim about as much as the man on the moon was a hoax in 1969. It is just conspiracy theory going nuts.
Obama comes out a lot and says he is a “Christian”, and of course the media is going to jump all over that when they can.
Well, you know what the fundamentalist right wingers think of the media, right?
I am with them there, I cannot stand the media, but that does not make me think that Obama is a terrorist just because the media is involved. I just see it as a medium to try to capture some left “Christian” votes.
But when I approach them and ask them why they believe all this hype, they usually come up with the response that Obama’s father was a Muslim and that Obama went to a Muslim school in Indonesia or somewhere out that way.
So I would then say… just because his dad and many of his family engaged themselves in the Muslim faith, makes all the children Muslims too?
You know, most evangelical Christian parents know that children never abandon their faith of their parent’s, right? (sarcasm)
You can send them to “Christian” schools, pound the bible over their heads for years, and that makes them a “fundie” right? A lot of them start to think for themselves, and find out that Jesus is more than politics and an organization… so they leave “your” man-made faith.
If Obama is this big raging fanatical Muslim, then why is it that he and his administration keep killing Muslims by the truckload? So here we have a man who treats the gruesome killing of Muslim civilians as acceptable collateral damage in the fight to kill Muslim terrorists. Yeah, that makes him a Muslim… not!
I do not agree with the approach Obama takes in life, and the decisions he makes for our country. I do not like government control in our lives, period. So there is no way I would vote for him.
However, could this man actually be a “Christian”, but not just fit the perfect “Christian” mold you fundamentalists are brainwashed to believe?
I might not agree with 99% of Obama’s actions and decisions, but he is much closer to being a “Christian” than his opponent is. At least Obama says he is a Christian… something Romney cannot come out and say.
The king of fundamentalists, Mr. Graham, just did a 180 and rolled over to ask all his sheep to vote for someone who is not even a “Christian”… I wonder if Billy thinks Obama is the actually the antichrist, and must be stopped?
