I Just Don’t Get It

[Washington Post]

I stumbled upon this article from the LA Times today:

Before he left Reno for San Francisco, Obama took questions from the friendly audience.

When a woman asked what she could do to help him, he urged her to fight rumors that he is a closet Muslim.

“You’ve just got to tell them that’s not true, he’s a Christian,” Obama said. “There’s nothing wrong with being Muslim. We’ve got wonderful Muslim Americans. But the point is, don’t lie about my religion.”

Mary Bruns, a 65-year-old precinct captain from Reno, is worried the religion rumors, as well as prejudice against African Americans, could sink Obama’s presidential bid.

When she canvasses door to door, she said, older people have made comments such as “I don’t mind he’s a Muslim, if he would just admit he’s a Muslim,” and “We can’t vote a black person in there; they’ll think they rule the world.”

If people say that to her face, the retired nurse wonders what they say behind closed doors.

“I think a certain segment of the American population is just ignorant,” she said. “I don’t give them the time of day.”

Then, I stumbled upon this snippet of information:

.

A new national study by the Pew Research Center shows that 12 percent of the country still believes Sen. Barack Obama is a Muslim…

.

What?

As I commented over at “In One Ear… Out The Other”, this never ceases to amaze.  I’m constantly amazed at and by this! 😕

When Rev. Jeremiah Wright was “all the rage”, all Obama’s opponents did everything they could to ensure that the Wright-Obama connection became firm and concrete in people’s minds.

[Huffington Post]

“He goes to a church with a pastor who hates and damns America!”, they said.

“That America-hating pastor baptised his children!”

“He married his America-hating wife by having that America-hating pastor do the ceremony!”

Months later… Obama’s now a secret Muslim?  Check out this video…

How then could there ever have possibly been a Wright-Obama connection, a Pastor-Parishioner connection, if he were a Muslim?

Come on, America!  Use your heads!

He can either be Christian or Muslim… but not both!

😕

But…hey… what do I know?

I just live on an island in the Caribbean Sea!

Peace and Much Love,
