  • There are millions of muslims throughout North America. How can you say they are trying to kill you? There is extremism in every religion. How hard is it to grasp that fact??

  • If he's not a muslim now, by the teachings of the Quran, he must be killed. He is worse than an infidel.

    My personal belief is that is a bunch of BS. But what kind of Mullah am I?

  • Democracy in America has already gotten one black eye with the sham election of Bush. Why do Republicans hate honesty, integrity and the truth? Have you people no shame? Why do you guys insist on absurd lies to advance your destructive ideology? The one conclusion I have come to when dealing with liars is either they are supremely evil or they are pathetically stupid. They are supremely evil if they know they are full of it but don't have a kernel of decency to care about the truth or they More..

  • Its not a myth. He was a muslim at one time. If he would just admit it, then say he changed his faith it would go away. But instead he lies, which is why people believe it.

  • It's easy. Take something from a semi-credible source, that could possibly be true, and portray it as truth. Then, when your cover's blown, reverse and apologize. The word is already out. It's low-ball politics with the morality of Karl Rove, but it works. Sad. They cried a river about McCain's alleged affair and turned around and did this. Oh wel. 1 in 10 people pray to the image of Jesus on burnt toast.

    • The man is a "Muslim". Just ask his "Pappy" and "Step Pappy". They were both "Muslims". Or ask his adopted "Christian Pappy" the honorable Rev. Wright.

    • Wouldn't it be Imam Wright if Obama were Muslim? You can't have it both ways. You can't grill him for being a Muslim and grill him because of his Christian pastor. What, did he move on to Wrights church after his term at the Madrassa? Or does he have dual membership?

    • He can be grilled on both sides. The "dumbass" does not have the sense to just tell the truth or associate himself with moderates. He has moderated his radical views only lately, as a compromise to seeking the presidency. All and all, still a politician and liar.

    • Don't tell me about "sense" when your guy can't even get a straight word out. Bumbling bastard reminds me of Bush, in yet another way. And everybody changes in the run-up to the election. McCain was "liberal", remember? Now he's kissing the radical right's ass.

    • Sounds like I struck a nerve! What's a matter? Your boy is a "Muslim" yet you feel like you have to defend that. Well not everyone will except "Messiah Kool-Aid". McCain will win and you know it. The unmasking of the "Messiah" has begun.

  • It's been a relentless campaign but one of the only angles of attack left for Fox and conserviatives. The idea is to portray him as too strange , foreign , and exotic to be president. Would they subject the new conservative darling Bobby Jindal to this type of whisper campaign when his real name is Piyush and was born a Hindu ? Never. And noone should.

    • How many Hindu extremist bombers to you hear about? The Hindu religion does not call for the destruction of the "Great Satan America" while Islam and the Muslim extremist do. What side of the Islamic Religion does BHO stand? That is something we as a country cannot take a chance on? Religion should not be a big issue however, the inability of candidates to come completely clean does. BHO's hiding the "muslim" fact is an issue.

    • Raila Odinga is of the Anglican faith and is married to Ida Odinga (born Ida Anyango Oyoo). They live in Nairobi with their four children.

      In a January 2008 interview, Odinga suggested that he was the first cousin of American Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama through Senator Obama's father. However, Barack Obama's paternal uncle Said Obama has denied any direct relation to Odinga, stating "Odinga's mother came from this area, so it is normal for us to talk about cousins. Bu More..

    • What is with you people? Make up your minds... Obama is a racist against whites by association with CHRISTIAN preacher Rev. Wright who made controversial comments but not racist comments even though Obama is half white or is it he is a Muslim even though he doesn't go to a mosque and never attended a madrassa?

    • Non-patriotism? Like the kind that consistently votes against veteran benefits? Like the kind that sends young men and women to war in unarmored humvees, crap helmets, and shirts that melt to the skin? If that's "patriotism" I'd hate to see what being "non-patriotic" looks like. What would non-patriotism look like, someone pissing on the troops?

    • Fair enough. I'm not trying to persuade anyone here. I can't stand it, though, when people judge patriotism on whether a guy wears an American flag pin or not. These trivial inconsequential things are sidelined when it comes to the major issues. It seems you're not deciding solely on a US pin or the Pledge of Allegiance, so more power to you. In Obama's defense, though, Sharia law isn't always this woman-hating Draconian system. There are varying degrees. It can be very much like our syst More..

  • He knows if he completely denounces Islam his liberal platform will be jeopardized. He's tip toeing around the issue, but everything I've read that he puts out makes me believe that he is and will remain a Christian. The forum last night gave me the feeling that Obama was trying to answer the questions honestly while Mccain's answers seemed far more rehearsed. I hate Islam more than anyone I know, but I don't want to start pointing at anyone with a Moslem connection and labeling them a Moslem.
