The ever-repugnant Son of Billy went on Morning Joe this morning and, while taking Newt and Rick at their words with respect to their Christian faith, said that President Obama may very well be a Muslim, all evidence to the contrary notwithstanding:
Rev. Franklin Graham — son of Billy Graham — would not say if President Obama is a Christian during an appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe on Tuesday, insisting that "I cannot answer that question for anybody." Franklin claimed that the President began attending Church to bolster his political career and is a Muslim under Islamic law. "Islam sees him as a son of Islam because his father was a Muslim, his grandfather was a Muslim, great grandfather was a Mulsim and so under Islamic law, the Muslim world sees Barack Obama as a Muslim," Graham said, before explaining that he could not rule out the possibility that Obama may secretly be Muslim. "I can't say categorically [that Obama is not a Muslim] because Islam has gotten a free pass under Obama," he said.
First, there's nothing necessarily wrong with being Muslim, though of course this unabashed bigot means it as the worst sort of insult. (For the record, he doesn't like Mormons either. Sorry, Mitt.)
Second, if Islamic law were to condemn Graham as the infidel, would that be just as valid? What matters here is Obama's personal faith, not how he would be judged under Islamic law, which, last time I checked, has no jurisdiction in the U.S. (Perhaps Frankie G. thinks it supercedes American civil law?)
Third, the Muslim world doesn't see Obama as a Muslim. This is blatant ignorance. Then again, what the hell does Frankie G. know about the Muslim world? He's a Christianist bigot.
Fourth, how exactly has Islam gotten a free pass under Obama? What does that even mean? Has Obama been tough on Judaism by not going along with Likudnik aggression and Netanyahu's refusal to compromise? No, he's just opposed militant Israeli extremism. With respect to Islam, he hasn't given it anything except respect, which apparently is too much for Frankie G. But if you think he's given all Muslims a free pass, well, I'm not sure Osama bin Laden or the targets of his many drone attacks would agree.
Fifth, I can neither confirm nor deny that Frankie G. is a devil-worshipping man-whore who likes to bugger himself with root vegetables. It's just not a question I can answer for anybody.
