So what’s wrong with being Muslim? Is there something inherently bad about being Muslim? If someone claimed I was a Jew, would I get all defensive? Or would I simply correct him or her, that I am a Christian. I certainly wouldn’t get all huffy, resentful and accusatory over it.
Would my friends and relatives come to my aid, exclaiming how dare you call him a Jew? No. Any reasonable person would merely correct the error and go on their way.
But the liberal press loudly condemns Donald Trump for not just not correcting the audience member who called Obama a Muslim, but for, by his relative silence, implying that Obama is indeed a Muslim.
So what if Obama were a Muslim? How would that change anything? It was 4 1/2 years ago, in an early 2011 speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, Obama recounted working with churches in Chicago in his days as a community organizer and how he “came to know Jesus Christ for myself and embrace him as my Lord and Savior. My Christian faith then has been a sustaining force for me over these last few years, all the more so when Michelle and I hear our faith questioned from time to time. We are reminded that, ultimately, what matters is not what other people say about us, but whether we’re being true to our conscience and true to our God.” As far as I can find, this is the last instance of Obama affirming his Christian faith.
So I ask again – what if Obama were a Muslim? Would it matter? Would it make any difference to his policies?
