Politics, ugh!

I normally try to stay out of politics, and rarely will I share my political opinion with anyone, including my wife, but I had to say something about this. I received the email below this morning. It is alarmist, slanderous and obviously written to taint the public opinion on Obama. This email represents exactly what I hate about politics. It is never about people’s views and always about making the other guy look bad.
Furthermore, it is ridiculous that we label the entirety of one religion as terrorists. For being a country that is “tolerant” of so many different things, we sure are an intolerant people when it comes to Muslims. There are millions of them in the world and we are judging all of them by the actions and reactions of a few. I know several people, including myself, who hate it when “Christians” are all dumped into one group and spoken of unflatteringly. How is this any different? We’ve had so many corrupt “Christian” politicians maybe we could use a Muslim one. I highly doubt he would be able to destroy the US from his presidential seat, if he were to try anyway.
So, what I’m trying to say is, who cares. Who cares that he has a Muslim background? Who cares if he was raised Catholic? Who cares if he attends the United Church of Christ? What matters is, what he stands for and that he stands firm on his words. That’s what I care about.
I don’t know who I’ll vote for in the next Presidential election, or even if I’ll vote, but I despise these types of messages. Oh, election time, how I hate thee.
Who is Barack Obama
Democratic primary presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black Muslim from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white atheist from Wichita, Kansas.
Obama’s parents met at the University of Hawaii.

When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father Returned to Kenya.

His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a radical Muslim From Indonesia.

When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to Indonesia.

Obama attended a Muslim school in Jakarta.

He also spent two years in a Catholic school.

Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim.

He Is quick to point out that, “He was once a Muslim, but that he also attended Catholic school.”

Obama’s political handlers are attempting to make it appear that Obama’s introduction to Islam came via his father, and that this influence was temporary at best.

In reality, the senior Obama returned to Kenya Soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct influence over His son’s education.

Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam.

Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta. Wahabism is the radical teaching that is followed by the Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western world.

Since it is politically expedient to be a Christian when seeking Major public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background.

Let us all remain alert concerning Obama’s expected presidential candidacy.

Please forward to everyone you know. The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the US from the inside out, what better way to start than at the highest level.

One thought on “Politics, ugh!

  1. What a dumb article. You’re right about that for sure.A couple thoughts: Thought #1 – The whole alarmist thing – “what better way for the Muslims to take over the US?” is just about the most annoying thing the political right does. I hate that as well.Thought #2 – I have read portions of the Koran, and in spite of how politically incorrect it is to say this, it’s scary. Christians who are misrepresented are being misrepresented by people who are not following the heart of the Biblical message. Muslims who are bent on killing all the “infidels” (that’s us), are following their holy book to a tea. That’s scary to me. There’s a distinct difference there. The Koran outright teaches violence. If you don’t believe me, read it for yourself. It doesn’t make them ALL terrorists, but if they are true Muslims, that is truly what they believe.Thought #3, then I’m done. šŸ™‚ How a person was brought up does effect the way they would run a nation, does it not? So, if he was raised with a radically Muslim stepfather, that could possibly make him sympathetic toward people who hate the US and all it stands for. Not necessarily, but possibly. Kinda scary to me, no matter what Obama says he stands for when he’s trying to get elected…
