    I mean he says he is. There's a lot in his personal biography that emphasizes that that he is a born-again Christian. An awful lot. We know that he used to do cocaine, and was an alcoholic. We also know that his family had business dealings with the Saudis. Can we really trust that this guy is who he says he is and was not a Muslim Manchurian Candidate funded by jihadis to start the war in Iraq and bring on a religious holy war?

    Just as I would ask of all those people who claim that Obama is a Muslim, prove Bush is not actually a Muslim.:eusa_whistle:

    He did not change his name to a Muslim name; his father was not Muslim; he does not insist on praying alone without anyone other than administration members and his family witnessing it.

    Well, thats for starters.

    Are you referring to when Obama was adopted by Soetero and temporarily had the name Barry Soetero before reverting to his birth name?
    How do we know that? Prove Bush senior isn't a Muslim. where was the scrutiny of Bush 1's faith when he was in office? I mean heck, he personally has business dealings with the Saudis, and Muslims generally are untrusting of non-Muslims in business dealings!
    Do you ever pray alone? Or do you insist on having an audience on you every single time that you pray, lest you be accused of not being a Christian?


    Barry is short for Barack. It's a pet name, and Obama had it when he was a kid. Also, I believe it's customary in Indonesia to register a child under the family name of the primary male custody holder... In this case Mr Soetero.

    Only God knows a man's heart. Bush has been baptized in the name of The Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. He also affirms publicly his faith in Jesus Christ.

    According to the tenets of most Christian denominations, that qualifies him. One does not have to be a perfect disciple of Jesus to be called a Christian.

    And Obama affirms publicly that he's a Christian.

    How do we know Bush isn't lying? How do we know Bush isn't a secret Muslim? Muslims are known to lie about such things to get ahead.:eusa_shhh:

    Well, Obama didn't change his name to a Muslim name, neither does he "insist on praying alone without witnesses". And, Obama's father was an atheist.

    So, you're wrong on all counts.

    Ah but compared to Obama, Bush is er overzealous in wearing his faith on his sleeve. Is he trying to overcompensate for less than savory religious leanings? Can we really trust the Republican dominated propaganda about this man?
