If Obama is an ex-Muslim, will liberals vote for him?

Daniel Pipes writes that Barack Obama was raised as a Muslim and would therefore be considered an apostate under Islamic law. Pipes notes that Obama "is now what Islamic law calls a murtadd (apostate), an ex-Muslim converted to another religion who must be executed. Were he elected president of the United States, this status, clearly, would have large potential implications for his relationship with the Muslim world."

Personally, I do not care. America need not take a poll of the Muslim world when selecting her commander-in-chief. However, the liberals who bemoan the country's standing abroad and Bush's reputation as a "crusader" on the Arab street should be very interested in this point raised by Pipes. By their own logic, Obama should be disqualified because of his conversion from Islam to Christianity.

  • It will be amazing if Hillary brings this up. I'm glad this is getting some play, it's about time. Btw, a grandfather of his was a strict Muslim with two wives.

    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe says
    elect an apostate

    to occupy The White House
    make it a bigger target
