Father Lists Obama’s Religion As “Islam”

By Wyatt Earp | September 28, 2008

Reply for Barack Obama: OUCH!

This is certainly interesting, but the usual Kool-Aid drinkers will dismiss it as irrelevent.

The AP Caption (20 Months Ago): This registration document, made available on Jan. 24, 2007, by the Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta, Indonesia, shows the registration of Barack Obama under the name Barry Soetoro into the Catholic school made by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro. The document lists Barry Soetoro as a Indonesian citizen, born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, and shows his Muslim step-father listed the boy’s religion as Islam. (AP Photo/ Tatan Syuflana)

Since I can’t say it better myself, I’ll latch onto the post from Ace of Spades:

If prosecutors are going to threaten those who “lie” about Obama, I guess we’ll just have to start preparing the truth-is-a-defense-to-libel ground.

A lot of people thought that even though the Danish cartoons may have been excessively provocative, the fact that the cartoons were met with a threat of violence demanded they be displayed. If only to send the message that threats would not shut down free speech.

I hope many of the same people react similarly here.

Even those who believe that calling Obama a Muslim is an unjustified smear should acknowledge, I hope, 1) there is certainly enough question about Obama’s early upbringing that to threaten prosecution for noting these questions is out of line, and 2) such threats must be demonstrated to be not only outrageous but guaranteed to result in the opposite outcome than the threats are designed to produce.

I don’t think Barack Obama is a Muslim . . . currently. But the fact that his own father wrote down his religion as “Islam,” is enough for the questions to be asked – and answered – by the Obama camp.

Of course, the Obama people are too busy using local district attorneys to silence any voices that dare disagree with The Obamessiah to worry about little things like the First Amendment.

Voting for Obama is just voting for four more years of George Bush.

    Why should we confuse politics with facts? Wouldn’t that destroy the entertainment industry? Errr… I mean the unbiased, well-balanced, fair news media? (Cough, cough, gasp, cough.)

    1. Who gives a shit. A document filled out by his pseudo step-father. I couldn’t care less what religion McCain or Obama believes in. Or if Obama’s trying to hidw the fact that he is/was a Muslim.

    Until he starts using the tongue-wagging, muslim battle cry, I’m not worried.

    Shit, Laura Bush killed a guy by running a stop sign when she was 17. (sorry, I just watched the new Family Guy.)

    2. “Voting for Obama is just voting for four more years of George Bush” – funniest post of the week.

    First, let me say that I despise Obama.

    Second, I have known christians from Indonesia. They were persecuted by the government until they were forced to become refugees.

    Third, you don’t get to choose your own children’s names in Indonesia. You must get a government approved ie. muslim first and last name.

    In conclusion, if Obama’s step-father registered him as a muslim, it was just to make life easier.

    Captain – I assume he holds dual citizenship.

    Kim – Oh come on, the media is fair to both candidates . . . BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Randal – You missed the entire point. The point was that the Obama camp is threatening people who are asking legitimate questions about him and his background.

    And if he is hiding things about his past, what else is he hiding? Face it, if this were a Republican, you’d be all over it. I just want you to be honest about it. But you won’t, because you don’t criticize the Obamessiah . . . ever.

    Timmeeee – That’s all well and good, but again – missing the point. Obama’s Missouri goon squads are silencing any questions or dissent into legitimate questions. Read the post again. I don’t think – and I have posted this a million times – that Obama is a Muslim. But, to try and intimidate people for asking the question is Gestapo tactics. Something the libtards are always accusing Bush of doing.

    If Bush is a Nazi for it, Obama is, too.

    “The point was that the Obama camp is threatening people…”

    I remember Obama mentioning that during the debate. He talked about how he stays up late at night himself hacking into blogs and shutting them down. I never realized he was such a computer whiz.
