quote:What I would like to know is what is the difference whether he was Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Shintoist, Jewish, Confucianist, Taoist or Atheist? What has a person's religious beliefs to do with his capabilities to govern? Anymore than what would be the difference whether a candidate was male or female; whether the candidate was heterosexual, bisexual or homosexual; whether the candidate was white, black or anything else? What has any of this got to do with issues? People should vote on issues not the person.
Well, you've conjured up an image of a bisexual Hindu black woman as president of the USA. There are so many reasons that's not going to work (all of them rooted in popular prejudice). Having a straight male black Christian doesn't seem to be working so well, with a mass movement formed who would seem to want to lynch him at the first opportunity, despite his promotion of policies that were favoured by Nixon.
But then you can find him talking about it on some You Tube videos if you go look, not that he IS a Muslim but that he certainly had a Muslim family and experience in a Muslim community in Kenya. You can also find him speaking Arabic and quoting Muslim sayings with obvious personal experience of their milieu.
And your point is...?

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.
There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

anyone know of msnbc or CNN specifically cutting clips to show something that isn't there? Here two recent ones talked about fox. Admittedly the second is from an MSNBC political show but they seem to lay out a case.

Source Doesn't the stupid media realize that he only went to the Catholic school to hide his moslemness? He has bean planning to fool the American public since he was in the womb. Why does the media continue to abet this deception of his?Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
