Question by ekleinert: Is Barack Obama a Muslem and why does?
he not acknowledge the american flag? I saw a photo where H. Clinton etc had their hand over their heart while the national anthem was playing and Obama just stood there with his hands folded in front of him.
What are your thoughts?

Best answer:

Answer by Heartfire
Obama claims to be a Christian, but some of his values are questionable. All I know is that I will never vote for a man who refuse to wear a flag pin on 9/11 remembrance day.

  1. First of all, Obama is not Muslim. Stop asking this question, it has been answered over and over again by credible sources. He is Christian – get over it.

    How can you tell from a picture if the national anthem was being played? When one considers the fact that there are plenty of videos showing him with his hand over his heart during other instances of the pledge of allegiance and the national anthem is playing, your argument pretty much loses all credibility.

  2. Barack Obama is NOT for the millionth and final time a muslim. He belongs to the Church of Christ and is a Christian. His mother, whom he lived with was an Atheist, his father whom she divorced was a Muslim, but not a radical, just a Muslim. He lived with his mother and never had contact with his father after they divorced. The school he went to for a short time in indonesia was a public school, there were Christians, muslims, jews etc there. this a lie and smear campaign by the right wing Republicans who can not combat him on real issues so they make up lies.
    As for the Hand on the Heart: Holding your hand over your heart is done during the Pledge of Alegience, not the National Anthem, so that means nothing.
    everyone should listen to his stands on Policies and Platforms, not on lies and inuendos.

    Edit: Heartfire : Which of his values are quesitonable and lead you to believe he is Muslim, that he reaches out to middle and lower income class of our citizenship? That he has had integrity and honesty and stood by his convictions, such as being gainst the war in Iraq, since 2002 (read his speach from 2002 its prophetic) he has stood by those convictions when it wasn’t popular to do so.
    And you question his patriotism because he wouldn’t wear a tin flag that probably said “Made in China” on the back of it.
    Well I didn’t either and I lost my best friend that day and I am 3rd generation Military and a Gulf War Vet – so am I unamerican also?
    Decide on the issues not on insignificant crap like that, you are a College Student so I would expect more intelligence from you than that response.
    EDIT: Great Pretender -Rep.-elect Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was the Congrerssman who swore on the Quran, not Obama- Get your facts straight. and stop spreading lies you lying liars!

  3. He is NOT a Christian. Just because someone says they are something, does not make it true. Just because someone joins one of the most liberal so-called churches in the nation doesn’t make them a Christian.

    That’s just another of his little tricks to get votes.

    He is a Muslim, if anything, which is yet to be determined. The man is a walking, talking chameleon.

  4. Nope, not a Muslim. Has never been a Muslim. He espoused no religion at all until becoming a Christian fairly late in life.

    There are some complete idiots that think he’s some sort of Muslim plant, which is completely laughable. Right. He’s secretly a Muslim and after he’s inauguarated he’s going to declare Jihad on America and we’ll all be forced to comply with Muslim country’s demands and go out and buy prayer rugs and the women will have to war burkhas (sp). Hmm…What happened to the Congress and DOJ? Did they just disappear and the President suddenly got all this magic power he never had before? Couldn’t be more ridiculous.

    As far as the photo I don’t have a clue, never have seen it. But I suspect it wasn’t deliberate. How stupid would THAT be if he wanted to President? Though the hand over the heart thing is really for the Pledge, not the national athem.

  5. i seen the pic too. hes christian” probably just converted right before he announced his running for president he wont get my vote btw you would be amazed at the software out there and what it could do to pictures these days

  6. Pastor at his church of 20 years is a bigger racist than Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton put together.

    When some of his comments came out, he was asked to not appear with Obama.

    Not that Obama is even qualified for the job, but the religion thing with him bothers me enough not to vote for him.

  7. It has nothing to do with religion. I’ve voted for lots of Christians in my time. Pickins would have been pretty slim if I’d only voted for Jews! Especially where I live! You get my point? It ain’t about religion, it’s about reality! I can’t support Obama because of who he is (a left wing loon!) not what he is, a black Muslim, a United Chruch of Christ Christian, or whatever. I don’t give a damn what his religion is. This ain’t about religion, it’s about politics, and like I said, the man is a left-wing loon! He can’t even wear a flag pin for cryin’ out loud. How the hell can he lead this country if he’s afraid to fly our colors?

  8. even if any of this was true Hillary has done far worse which I will show you this has Bill in it

    Bill says: “In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.”

    The facts are: Hillary’s main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent. She went to court every day as part of a law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.

    Bill says: “Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children’s rights project for poor kids.”

    The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.

    Bill says: “Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers.”

    The facts are: She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas, none, and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.

    Bill says: “President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its chairman.”

    The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill’s support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter’s choice to be chairman.

    Bill says: “She served on the board of the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.”

    The facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-mart board of directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

    Bill says: “Hillary didn’t succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance.”

    The facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott. I know; I helped to negotiate the deal. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals’ tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.

    Bill says: “Hillary was the face of America all over the world.”

    The facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House. Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.

    Bill says: “Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for children’s and women’s issues.”

    The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation. One set up a national park in Puerto Rico. A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer’s or other conditions. And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire NY delegation. Presently, she is trying to have the US memorialize the Woodstock fiasco of 40 years ago.

    Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton. She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our country (that’s you and me!) when it comes to the war on terror.

    1. She wants to close GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would have access to our legal system.

    2. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from the USA .

    3. She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.

    4. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda cells and supporters in the USA .

    5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.

    One cannot think of a single bill Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our country in the War on Terror.

    But, one can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our country and makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us.

    Bottom line: She goes hand in hand with the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is abandoned.

  9. Wow, maybe you should read a bio on Obama. Why are people so hung up on religion? Obama is a Christian. However, it really doesn’t matter what religion people are. Spirituality is a personal thing and should NOT be a part of politics.

  10. I don’t think just beacuase Obama didn’t wear a flag pin on september 11th remeberance day means he is muslim. And not all muslim’s are proud of september 11th.!!!!!!! : (

  11. I heard that he refused to take the oath of office on the Bible but took it on the koran instead! If this is so then he must be a Muslim. There are lots of e-mails going around to this effect about Obama, Are they true? I don’t know.
    great pretender

  12. He is a Christian. His father was born a Muslim, but by the time he met his wife (Barack’s mother) he was an Atheist. Furthermore, the father left Barack and his mother when Barack was 2, so clearly he (and his Muslim background) had basically no influence on his life.
    And who cares about his name? It’s not your choice what you are named.
    And to great pretender: That was another person who was sworn in on the Koran instead of the Bible.
    “Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress, has announced that he will not take his oath of office on the Bible, but on the bible of Islam, the Koran.”
    Barack was sworn in on the Bible.

  13. No, that’s a myth. I swear I’m getting tired of all of this “Obama’s a Muslim” crap, no offense.

    He attends a church named “Trinity United Church of Christ”, doesn’t sound very Muslim to me. My favorite myth is that he went to some radical madrassa as a kid for a couple of years.
    Yea, he went to a secular public school whose students and staff were primarily Muslim. That’s like saying everyone who attends a public school in America is automatically Christian or something.

    BTW, here’s a couple of photos you might find interesting:
