    Nowhere in either one does it mention anything about their religion. It appears it is Atlas Shrugs, and other publications like it that singled them out as devout Muslims.

    I agree with intent of Julie's statement. It is bigotry pure and simple (Islam is not a race). However, it is not on the part of Obama and his administration. It is on the part of Atlas Shrugs and publications like them.
    Are you trying to tell me that a review of the facts suggests the entire reason this thread was started is based on misinformation? No way!

    So I guess when Julie R. wrote that "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.", she was calling the author of the Atlas Shrugged blog a racist "pure and simple".
