Today in an interview on George Stenapholous’ show on ABC, Barack Obama made the accusation that Republicans are fueling the Internet controversy that Barack Obama is a Muslim. In the course of the interview Barack Obama referred to “My Muslim Faith”. He was immediately corrected by George Stenapholous who said, “you mean your Christian Faith.”

This little slip up will speed around the Internet as fast as Reverend Wright’s Chickens coming home to roost sermon. I have attached the YouTube video below.

A reader emailed me this article on I had never seen this article before and this article makes me wonder if there is truth to any of these rumors.

Here is a snippet from the article:

Koran class: In his autobiography, Dreams of My Father, Obama relates how he got into trouble for making faces during Koranic studies, thereby revealing he was a Muslim, for Indonesian students in his day attended religious classes according to their faith. Indeed, Obama still retains knowledge from that class: Nicholas D. Kristof of the New York Times, reports that Obama “recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them [to Kristof] with a first-rate accent.”

Mosque attendance: Obama’s half-sister recalled that the family attended the mosque “for big communal events.” Watson learned from childhood friends that “Obama sometimes went to Friday prayers at the local mosque.” Barker found that “Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers.” One Indonesia friend, Zulfin Adi, states that Obama “was Muslim. He went to the mosque. I remember him wearing a sarong” (a garment associated with Muslims).

I look forward to comments!

My blog is dedicated to dirt on both sides of the election, so if you want to accuse me of being a right wing blogger for discussing Barack Obama being a Muslim, please do notice that I give credence to all dirt from all parties. If you have dirt on any candidate, I invite you to post it in the comments or email it to me.
