The President Of The United States Of America Just Called The United States Of America A Muslim Country

Whew, well at least he didn’t call it a Christian nation because that would have been really bad.

HAHN, Germany — As President Obama prepared to leave Washington to fly to the Middle East, he conducted several television and radio interviews at the White House to frame the goals for a five-day trip, including the highly-anticipated speech Thursday at Cairo University in Egypt.

In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” He sought to downplay the expectations of the speech, but he said he hoped the address would raise awareness about Muslims.

I have to ask my few liberal readers . . . does this bother you at all? Because I have to say, it bothers the crap out of me.

First of all, we are not a Muslim country in any way, shape, form or fashion. Not even close both in terms of the number of  citizens who happen to be Muslim or in terms of Islam having anything significant to do with our society either historically (or currently except concerning the threat that radical Islam poses to our national security) .   I’m not saying we have to go around touting ourselves as a Christian nation, although as anyone knows our society is based on Judea-Christian tenets, but is it necessary to tell a lie an obvious lie in order to gain the acceptance of Islam?  Something that is probably never going to happen by the way no matter how much we bow down and kiss butt.  In fact, it does the opposite.  It emboldens the more radical elements of Islam because they know they now a weak sister when they see one.

No, this was a moronic thing to  say.  Gaining us nothing with Muslims abroad and losing our President even more support here at home.

Wait, that second part isn’t that bad a thing really.  Hmmmm.

  1. Although it was an unnecissary comment to make about the US, I don’t doubt the fact that there are a lot more Muslims in our country than we realize. Islam is, in fact, the worlds second largest religion (next to Christianity, of course). I don’t know statistics or anything like that but, I’m assuming it’s the second largest religion in America as well. But despite that, President Obama should not have made that statement, no matter what reason he had for it. America is clearly not an Islamic nation….

    • According to this site, Islam is number four on the list of the top twenty religions in the USA. (Estimated for 2004, I can’t find anything more current)

      Not bad one would think except for the fact that Christianity is about 76% of the population, with Secularists coming in at about 13%, Judiasm at about 1.3% and Islam about about .5%.

      In numbers that means about 225 million Christians versus 1.5 million Muslims.

      No, we are not a Muslim nation. Not even close.

    • Oops, forgot the site.

    • ,,,yet.

      All he needs to do, now, I think, is go back to Israel and claim that the United States is the largest Jewish nation in the world. That would not bother me at all, as Christian faith has Judaism at its roots.

  2. NOW he talks abouot his Muslim roots. Didn’t he deny that during the election process?

  3. […] Back to my post about the number of Muslims in the USA. Well, in appears that there were about 1,349,000 in 2008. […]
