He’s Not a Muslim! (Not that There’s Anything Wrong with That)

Far be it from me to know for certain whether President Barry Soetoro the former is a Muslim (as many in recent polls say they believe) or not, in spite of all his protestations to the contrary. (See Taqiyya.) However, C. Edward Wright has a brilliant examination of the question at American Thinker. Below is an extended passage from the article. Read the entire thing.

The entire issue of religion in the 2008 campaign was somewhat successfully pigeonholed into neat little compartments by the media — pigeonholes that have little to do with reality. Everything was built around hiding or obfuscating or outright lying about who Obama is and what he believes.

On the one hand, we were told that Obama’s relationship with Wright was irrelevant and that he slept through the hateful messages — and on the other, TUCC was where Obama practiced his professed Christianity and received inspirations for his writings. We were told that in spite of that, Obama’s relationship with Wright was no more of an issue than was John McCain’s with John Hagee, an evangelical preacher with whom McCain had shared a lectern on occasion.

And through all of this, we were required to have enough suspension of belief to count Black Liberation Theology as Christian in the first place. Right. Never mind Jeremiah Wright’s relationship with and support of Louis Farrakhan.

We were told to fear Sarah Palin’s devout faith — and yet told to embrace Obama’s professed Christian conversion. Every stone in Wasilla was overturned in hopes of finding some evidence of Palin’s handling of snakes or casting out of demons — while the entire “no no no — G.D. America” tape collection available on the Trinity Church website was ignored for months and months.

We were told that Obama is certainly not a Muslim, yet he would have a magical ability to reach out to the Muslim world — thus ending America’s role as a terror target. We were told that the world, especially the Muslim world, would continue to hate America if we elected a religious nut like Palin, however.

Of course, none of that makes any sense — and that becomes clearer and clearer to more and more Americans under the microscope of the Ground Zero Mosque issue. And it’s not the mosque issue alone, of course. As theorized by J.R. Dunn, that could simply be the tipping point.”
