Mystery:Why Do Some Oppose the Likelihood that Obama Is Muslim?
Some people are particularly opposed to the likelihood that Obama is a Muslim. Why?
There is no religious test for office in the United States. In fact, the U.S. Constitution prohibits such a test. So why the opposition to recognizing the likelihood that the American President is Muslim?
I agree that religion is not a qualifying test for holding the Presidency. I do have an issue with people making false statements (or, at best, statements with a reckless disregard for the truth) about Obama's religion, when there are significant shortcomings in Obama's policy preferences that we Republicans can focus on. But that's just my opinion. Personally, I believe that Obama is a Christian, just as he says he is. GregG 20:35, 3 January 2013 (EST)
- "Just as he says he is" - politicians make many false statements. Some would argue that they should make false statements when it is for the good of the country, or their political party, or whatever.
- Whether Obama is a Muslim is surely not determined by what he claims to be in campaign statements.
- I, for one, would certainly trust someone's statement as to what their faith is. GregG 20:44, 3 January 2013 (EST)
