Here's the perfect answer to "conservatives" who say Obama went to an "Islamic" school in Indonesia

They'll ignore the fact that he went to a public school, and not an Islamic madrasa,
so don't even bother with that one.

However, when they start whining about his having been to an "Islamic" school, (and
you know how deep sixth grade indoctrination goes), just tell them that you are greatly
encouraged by the fact that they have FINALLY come around to our view that prayers and
religion do not belong in schools.

Be prepared to duck, just in case.....

How come the DUmmies never ask why he turned his back on the religion of his father and grandfather?

Uh... huh? If Islamic schools want to have Islamic prayers, that's fine by us conservatives. Your assinine (emphasis on the "ass" part) attempt at pretzel logic is nothing more than a lame distraction from some inconvenient truths about your Obamessiah.

Obamessiah claims to be a Christian now, which you'd think would not sit well with the DUmp monkeys. Of course, they know what we all know - that Obamessiah's alleged Christianity is false. That's why they don't have a problem with his religion.

Indonesia is practically all Sunni muslim. Barack went to a Muslim school.

http://www.danielpipes.org/article/5354

* "Interviews with dozens of former classmates, teachers, neighbors and friends show that Obama was not a regular practicing Muslim when he was in Indonesia" – implying he was an irregularly practicing Muslim.
* "Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers, a few neighbors said" confirming that he did pray in the mosque.
* "Obama's 3rd-grade teacher at the Catholic school, who lived near the family [said that] ‘Rarely, Barry went to the mosque with Lolo'" – confirming that Obama attended mosque services.

All this matters, for if Obama once was a Muslim, he is now what Islamic law calls a murtadd (apostate), an ex-Muslim converted to another religion who must be executed. Were he elected president of the United States, this status, clearly, would have large potential implications for his relationship with the Muslim world.

In sum: Obama was an irregularly practicing Muslim who rarely or occasionally prayed with his step-father in a mosque. This precisely substantiates my statement that he "for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian step-father."

Therefore, what MMfA calls the "Obama-Muslim falsehood" is in fact confirmed by both articles as truthful and accurate.

Calling this a falsehood is in itself a falsehood.

I don't believe a Joe Smith would have any credibilty in the ME claiming he was never a Christian.
Somehow we are expected to buy that Barrack Hussein Obama, raised in predominently muslim Indonesia, was never a muslim.:rolleyes:

Because it isn't real except in the extreme right wing and Shillary supporters minds.

There are so many, much better reasons to not want Obama in the White House, why should we waste time arguing with libs over his religious background?

I agree. The best school of all would be one that can teach students to spell "asinine".

True, but I also believe, when running for the highest office in the country, one should be honest and not lie. Like SnObama has.

Looks like some sort of internet game, not a dictionary. If your point is that there are others on the internet who are as compromised in their literacy as the poster here, you'll get no argument from me.

Chuck Norris does not use spell check. If he happens to misspell a word, Oxford will simply change the actual spelling of it. :D

The person we're talking about is hardly Chuck Norris. Ultimately, the point is, why dabble in rumors about the candidate which appeal to the "easily frightened" part of Americans, when there are so many substantive reasons not to support him?
