These pictures are meant to harm the Democratic Party, but only show the lunacy in grasping for straws in an attempt to paint Obama as a "Muslim" when he is anything but one.

He didn't get to choose who his father was, so don't be angry about that. His mother could have aborted him but didn't. Yet, people will still ridicule and crucify someone for something beyond their control--i.e. a name!

An interesting article by a Professor Juan Cole on the history of Barack Obama's name.

"Barack is a Semitic word meaning "to bless" as a verb or "blessing" as a noun. In its Hebrew form, barak, it is found all through the Bible. It first occurs in Genesis 1:22: "And God blessed (ḇāreḵə ) them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth."

"Now let us take the name "Hussein." It is from the Semitic word, hasan, meaning "good" or "handsome." Husayn is the diminutive, affectionate form.

Barack Obama's middle name is in honor of his grandfather, Hussein, a secular resident of Nairobi. Americans may think of Saddam Hussein when they hear the name, but that is like thinking of Stalin when you hear the name Joseph. There have been lots of Husseins in history, from the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, a hero who touched the historian Gibbon, to King Hussein of Jordan, one of America's most steadfast allies in the 20th century. The author of the beloved American novel, The Kite Runner, is Khaled Hosseini.

But in Obama's case, it is just a reference to his grandfather."


You don't have to agree with his policies. But stooping so low as to employ fear tactics shows the mentality of a person.

Let's stop being scared and pretending people have cooties because of a d*** name.
No, Barack and Osama "doesn't" go to the same church.

It should be "don't".

Osama does not attend church because he is living a nomadic lifestyle and the Bush Administration just can't seem to find him and make him pay for the masterminding of 9/11.

How many times have we actually heard about Osama bin Laden in the news in the last 6 months? None. Because Bush probably invited the bin Laden family to Jenna's wedding and didn't want to stir up anything

Next question....
THAT is the moat VAPID, MEANINGLESS, IGNORANT POST OF THE MONTH--and bidding fair for the annual award! That freakish alleged minister is literally guilty of blasphemy when he intones, "Thus speaketh the Lord God Almighty," and then proceeds to babble not the words of God, but his own deranged and slanderous utterances. This jerk is a pious crackpot! He needs to repent lest he roast!
