Did Obama Encourage Public Schools To Teach the Quran For Extra Credit?
I cannot find proof of this although there are many incidents around the country where public schools are definitely teaching about Islam. There are many reports and stories such as http://www.wftv.com/news/news/local/9-investigates-dad-protests-islamic-lessons-school/nj7Ny/ but where does this come from. Do the school districts just wake up one morning and decide to teach about Islam? The Snopes and Truth or Fiction sites are very inconclusive. What exactly is true? Please supply proof where this has originated.
Why are liberals offended by the term 'radical Islamic terrorism'?
Because it’s dangerously inaccurate. Terrorist acts have been committed by a wide variety of groups for a wide variety of reasons. Using the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” ignores, condones, forgives, and encourages all other forms of terrorism because it blindly focuses on one set of causes.Because it blames the religion for the terrorism. We have many enemies in the Middle East. But those enemies have their own enemies in the same region. These people could be allies and spies for America. These people would be our very best weapon against ISIS. But they are also followers of Islam. Insulting them does our cause no good and it makes a great recruiting tool for our enemies. ISIS recruiters keep telling people that America hates all Muslims and wants to kill all Muslims, so all Muslims need to join the fight against America. If we stop calling the terrorists, Muslim, the recruiters are handicapped and our recruiters have a much better chance.Because it turns victims into terrorists. Most of the people killed by terrorists are other Muslims. Many of the Syrian refugees are Muslims fleeing terrorism. But Trump and the hard-right conservatives can’t get past hating Muslims and believing them all to be terrorists or terrorist supporters. So the Syrian refugees and other Muslim refugees are forced to go back to their own countries. When they get there, they have a choice between death or joining the terrorist effort. Instead of having grateful refugees supporting the United States, getting jobs, seeking citizenship, we are sending them away and increasing the numbers of our enemies.Because liberals are offended by deliberate stupidity. All these reasons are good reasons not to use the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.” Most Republicans and most conservatives are smart enough to know these things. But they let the most ignorant among them lead their party.
What is so hard to give obama a chance?
I see that as a fair question. So many people have such strong negative feelings but I can not imagine there are many who truly did research of their own. I did not vote for Bush, but I could be respectful of him as a person, man, human, and even as president. Barack deserves the same. Someone stated that Barack has too many radical ideas...how could you possibly know the full depth of the mans ideas? Do you know him personally, have you conversed with him, discussed issues or gotten into details about what influences him. I did bother to do research on my own on many of the issues and plans taking into account at least 3 sources on most matters. I found the negative stuff to be fabricated or execrated. I voted for Obama. Not all experience is good experience, and I believe intellect is as important as experience. An intelligent man would surround himself with an experienced and diverse group of advisers and be open to a fresh approach. I felt Obama being Harvard law grad that finished in top 10% and a professor of Constitutional Law fit that bill. I would ask that we give the man a chance to get into office before condemning what actions he may take and things he has yet to do.
I have seen an email saying Barack Obama is a Wahabi Muslim, is it true?
Probable U. S. presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black Muslim from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white atheist from Wichita, Kansas. Obama's parents met at the University of Hawaii. When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father returned to Kenya. His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a radical Muslim from Indonesia. When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to Indonesia. Obama attended a Muslim school in Jakarta. He also spent two years in a Catholic school. Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He is quick to point out that, aHe was once a Muslim, but that he also attended Catholic school.a Obama's political handlers are attempting to make it appear that Obama's introduction to Islam came via his father, and that this influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama returned to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct influence over his son's education. Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obamaas mother, Ann Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam. Osama was enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta. Wahabism is the radical teaching that is followed by the Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western world. Since it is politically expedient to be a Christian when seeking major public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background. Let us all remain alert concerning Obamaas expected presidential candidacy
Why did Obama mock the Bible and call the "sermon on the mount" a passage that is a radical teaching?
I don't follow Mr. Obama, but I suspect he would do such a thing, as his god's initials are BHO, not YHWH.
