i had also had this belief that Mr. Obama, democratic candidate running for president in 2008, was a Muslim. This was one of the main reasons that i did not want to vote for him. this is not to say that i have anything against Muslims, rather in a time when there is so much hostility between our nation and the Muslim nations, especially those in the middle east, i feel as if that would not have been the most wise decision. i also have other reasons considering mr. obama, but we can discuss those another time. i was talking with a friend and she mentioned that besides the abortion "issue" she was considering voting for obama. i was shocked! somehow i brought up the Muslim thing and she piped up and said, "but that's the thing, he isn't a Muslim. He proclaims Christ as most than a prophet which no Muslim would do." please believe i had to do a double take. i had also learned that he was a Muslim. she recommended that a read a q&a done by christianity today. here's the link after reading it, i think obama just went to the top of my list.
and i NEVER thought i would say that, but i guess that's what this election has been about.
