A MUSLIM CANNOT BE PRESIDENT OF AMERICA....
I have been following this Mosque on Ground Zero debate for awhile now, and the way some of the pundits have been talking about this issue is pretty troublesome. To the point where somepeople have started to wonder aloud whether President Obama is a closet muslim. Funny thing they just found out that the same person that is funding the proposed mosque is also a part owner of Fox News. The same Fox News thats been against the proposed mosque. Anywayz back to the topic. I then started to wonder, so what if Obama is a Muslim. How does that affect his presidency anymore than him being a Christian could affect his presidency. I asked some christian friends of mine whether Obama being a muslim would stop them from voting for him. They all said No, and I was pleased with their answer but I still pressed on. Why does Obama being a muslim not bother you? He doesn't have Christian values, his moral standards should naturally come into question. They all said that they would still vote for him because his religion should be different from his candidacy. Religion is a private thing according to them, it should be different from public office. I then upgraded my question to "If Obama was an atheist, would you still vote for him" and that is when it got interesting. A lot of them naturally said NO. Now this begs the obvious question, if religion should not play a part in his candidacy why then would you refuse to vote for him if he's atheist? So you see subconsciously or even cosnsciously religion does play a huge role in the way we decide who to vote for as candidates. Now lets look at this through another lense, the bible says something about not being unequally yoked with somebody else abi? Now that proves that being together with somebody from another religion/unbeliever etc is frowned upon. Now if God frowns upon you marrying somebody from another religion, why would he approve of voting for somebody from another religion to lead you?
