    He is thinking that if we apologize for our existance, suck up to our enemies and weakend our defenses-well golly gee everyone will like us and no one will try to harm our citizens or property. Seriously-each and everyday that passes with this POTUS and his merry band of idiots it just gets worse.

    The appointment of devout "Catholic, Jew or Protestant" staff is not news and is not reported for that reason. I suspect you would find that many or most of Obama's appointees fall into one of those categories. The fact that two appointees are Muslim shows how rare that is.

    PERSONAL NOTE: If I am not mistaken, was it not devout Catholics who brought us the Spanish Inquisition, was it not devout Christians who brought us the genocide of millions of natives in what is now Haiti and the Dominican Republic, and was it not the Christians of Salem that brought us the Witch Trials? Blaming any religion for all the worst acts of its devotees is ridiculous, whether the devotees claim to be Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, or any other of the world's major beliefs.

    Oh come on Jeff, this is WEAK. None of those things happened within the past decade and some are hundreds of years old.

    As for singling out 'devout' for a Muslim but not for any other religion, it's racism, pure and simple. But then, anyone who didn't think Obongo was racist had their eyes opened in the past week.

    You drive your point home without any doubt

    Methinks you might be incorrect reguarding Muslims - not all but a large majority have a mission.

    OK, who all on POTUS place has had a post edited by the moderators because it was deemed racist? Raise your hands, please.

    <<looking>>


    <<looking>>

    <<only seeing one sheepishly raised hand in the back of the room...it has a hemp "Increase the Peace" bracelet hand-woven by Sedona artist Swami Lovemore, but I can't make out the owner of the hand>>

    Who's that in the tie-dye dashiki shirt with their arm raised? Oh, ok. Thanks, JDog.

    <<still looking>>

    OK. Thanks. That's what I thought.

    Me thinks you don't know many or any Muslims. You are wrong.

    Personally, few things worry me more than religious fanatics/fundamentalists in positions of power. A number of countries around the world have allowed themselves to become theocracies and that is frightening to me. The fact that most of those countries are Muslim is secondary. It is more frightening to me that there are those who seem to want to establish a theocracy in this country as well. Given our greater power, that is more frightening. The issue is not the religion; it is the willingness to justify otherwise heinous acts when you believe that you are serving a "higher power." In my mind, evil is defined by what you do, not why you claim to have done it.
