Most of you know I could give two hoots about anybody’s religion, including the lack of my own. Whatever belief system you choose, I’m cool — as long as your belief system impinges not one iota on me.
So a diary from me about religion might seem out of context, except this isn’t really about religion. It’s about ignorance. America the Stupid. People who just won’t pay attention to the facts. People whose votes are soon to be billed as Very Important.
In the two states with primary votes tomorrow (Critically Important States if you listen to Legacy Media, who’d like your eyeballs for the next 36 hours, please) most GOP voters think President Barack Obama is a Muslim.
Repeating that for clarity: Most GOP voters in Mississippi and Alabama think President Barack Obama is a Muslim.
These are the voters our eyes are turning to tomorrow:
In the midst of tight GOP primaries in both states, Public Policy Polling (PPP) has released information showing that a majority of likely GOP primary voters in the Deep South do not see Obama as a Christian. PPP’s Alabama survey of 600 likely GOP primary voters found that only 14 percent consider Obama a Christian, while 45 percent said he is a Muslim and 41 percent answered that they were not sure.
A similar picture surfaced in Mississippi. Of 656 likely GOP primary voters surveyed, 12 percent said Obama was a Christian, 52 percent classified him as a Muslim, and 36 percent fell in the “not sure” category.
I’m willing to bet that at least half of those “not-sure” people are folks who think it’s downright rude to ask someone about another person’s religion but who are pretty sure a dark-hued fellah from Libya or Uganda whose name is Barack Hussein Obama Sr is gonna have a Muslim kid.
So when your MSNBC Panelists wax eloquent over the wisdom-of-the-voters after tomorrow’s catastrophe in Mississippi and Alabama and when CNN’s multiple panels tell Anderson Cooper that things are simply too-close-to-call-so-let’s-take-a-commercial-break-while-we-sort-things-out, just remember: these voters think our President is a Muslim. And almost all of them aren’t willing to take his word for it that he’s a Christian.
God-fearing Christian people, amiright?
