OMG Muslims... run for the hills! @ 10:46 am

There are always going to be stupid people out there. I've begrudgingly learned to accept that.

Poll finds 23% of Texans think Obama is Muslim - chron.com


If you're stupid enough to believe Obama is really a Muslim, despite the copious amounts of evidence to the contrary there is nothing I can do to convince you. If you choose to be ignorant about the facts so be it. I don't have a problem with that, but I do have a problem with the idea that it's not OK to be a Muslim.

Let's pretend for one second that he was a Muslim, so what! Since when have we become such a backwards nation that being a Muslim automatically means you're a terrorist? Are Muslims somehow second class citizens now just because some radical terrorists crashed some planes? What a ridiculous stereotype. We as a nation should be smarter than that.

Well...

I doubt that veracity of that report. Polls can be made to say anything the pollster wants it to say. I don't know anyone here in Texas who thinks Obama is a Muslim, nor, if he should become one, that such religious preference would disqualify him for the Presidency. Where in Texas were they polling, Lubbock? Waco? In Austin, Houston and Dallas, there are a fair number of Muslims, as well as Hindus and members of many other faiths. I doubt that most Texans care what religion Obama is. What Texans care about is experience and qualifications.

I didn't mean to imply that this was a Texas thing. It seems that nationwide people just don't get it. This has been coming up for a while. Some people are just uneducated and like it that way.

No matter where a person lives, if that person votes against a candidate because that candidate is of the Muslim faith, the person's voter registration card should be confiscated because the voter is too stupid to be alive, let alone vote. The Muslim faith is one of the world's great religions! Someone needs to get a grip!
