Is President Obama a Muslim?

March 12, 2012

Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, it's 2012 and President Obama has been in office for four years. There seems to be a question or concern about our current President that just refuses to fade away. Is President Obama a Muslim? Although it's not the only conspiracy question about the President that won't fade, it is the one that I will discuss within this article. This article will explore some of the elements that keeps fueling this particular question. We will take a look at how this question surfaced in the first place, who continues to fuel this question, and finally, why they continue to fuel this question. So without any further adieu, let's dive right in.

In 2008 America was introduced to a Senator from Illinois by the name of Barack Hussein Obama. He was a senator with a big dream of change for America, as he aspired to become President of our nation. I believe that when Americans took note of the name of this Senator, some started to wonder if he was a Muslim? As William Shakespeare once asked, "what's in a name?" Lets take a closer look to see if you can really determine a man's religion by his name? President Obama's first name as we all know is Barack. Did you know that President Obama's first name actually appears in the Holy Bible? Well allow me to "take you to church" for just a moment. Get your bibles out and turn with me to the book of Judges Chapter 4 and verses 6-24. If you feel so inclined, you can continue reading into chapter 5. As you can see there was a man by the name of Barak who was actually a man of God. I know some may be saying that President Obama's first name has the letter "c" in it and the man's name in the Bible doesn't. Well I would like to assure you that "Barack" and "Barak" are pronounced exactly the same. So now that we've been taken to church, let me get to the point that I'm making about President Obama's name. If the standard for determining a man's religion is in his name, then I think that the claim that President Obama is a man of God is a really strong argument. We all know that this is not the standard, so my only advice is; lets just move on folks.  

Who keeps fueling this question of whether or not President Obama is a Muslim?

I think that it's mostly fueled by right wing extremist. These are the folks who, no matter what anyone says to them, are still going to believe what they want to believe. They don't care how baseless the information is, they just want to have something that they believe will embarrass or discredit this president. In short what I'm trying to say is that they won't let the facts get in the way of what they want to believe. I really don't like to be critical of another person simply because they have a different view than I do, but I think that they should at least try base their views on actual facts and not just some baseless nonsense.

Why do some seem to want to keep this question of doubt going?

I don't know If anyone has noticed, but President Obama is really tough to beat in an election. In order to win against this president, you are almost forced to make stuff up in order to scare voters so much that they will vote for you. Yes, fear mongering is a political tactic that Republicans aren't afraid or ashamed to use. It's really a shame when you know that your ideas are so widely unpopular with the American public that you have to use fear tactics in order to get votes. This is a tactic of desperation in my opinion, and I think that in the end Americans will see it for what it really is. I say this because they have failed to take into account that not all Americans believe that all people of the Muslim faith are to be treated as a threat to society. Americans are smart enough to know that there are certain groups of Muslims around the world that have made it bad for all people of the Muslim faith. There are other scare tactics that are sadly being used against President Obama, I won't discuss them in this article, because I may want to discuss them in more detail in a future article.

Is President Obama a Muslim?

I say No. Most people who want to keep bringing up this claim can provide the public with little to no evidence to support their claim. I also believe that there is a very good reason why little to no evidence is being provided, and that reason is because it is a sad and baseless claim.
