WAS A COVER FOR "MY MUSLIM FAITH"!
By: Don Boys, Ph.D.
In a recent Iowa speech, Obama said, I want women to control their own
health choices, just like I want my daughters to have the same economic opportunities as my sons. My sons! Both the video of the
speech and the transcript distributed by the White House unequivocally documented his
mistake. And he was using a
teleprompter but I understand he uses the teleprompter when he tells Michelle Good
He made the same mistake in a New York speech a few days later! Does he not
know that he has two daughters? But then who knows, maybe he does have sons. Again,
the White House transcript confirmed his mistake.
On Jan. 12, while speaking at a campaign event at a private residence in Chicago, our
eloquent President, according to
the White House transcript, again mistakenly mentioned my sons
I wonder if his sons will campaign with him and if they ever visit the White House. Are
they in a family portrait? How old are they? How many sons are there? Where do they
live? Who is their mother? What are their ages? Do his two daughters know that they have
brothers? When did Michelle learn about this? Are his sons black, white or what? Do they
look like Trayvon Martin?
Is it possible to refer to sons you do not have? Is it remotely
possible to do so repeatedly? And reading a teleprompter! What is going on in the
head of Obama?
What is the explanation? Maybe marijuana does make mush of the brain. Maybe he
always wanted sons and his brain is not cooperating with him, producing such mishmash. But
then, maybe he does have two or more sons and it is a mental exercise to reveal this fact
to the world. It could be that his Freudian slip is showing. It is his way to reveal
his cloudy past.
Maybe it was only a slip of the tongue, but could you make such a mistake and refer to
children you do not have and do it multiple times while reading s script?
Then maybe he was speaking hyperbolically, but if so, the hyperbole did not work. It
made no sense but then again, Obama often makes no sense.
There are many speculations as to his reference to sons and they all miss the mark. My
brilliant and analytical wife posited the correct answer: It is all a
campaign strategy. He knows religion will play a big part in the election and he is
setting us up for an explanation for his reference on ABC television to my
Muslim faith. The ABC host gently corrected him. Muslims have not received the
most positive press in recent years so it would be wiser for him to wear a cross around
his neck and have Onward Christian Soldiers played when he is introduced rather than admit being a Muslim.
Obamas official campaign site has a page titled Obama has never been a
Muslim, and is a committed Christian. I would say, Obama, I know
thousands of committed Christians. They are my friends, and I can tell you that you are
not a committed Christian. Committed Christians are truthful, consistent, gracious,
kind, thoughtful, generous, Bible-reading, and church-going people. Everything you are
His site also does damage control when it falsely states, Obama
never prayed in a mosque. He has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a
committed Christian who attends the United Church of Christ. However, being a
member of Trinity United Church of Christ gives him no credibility since it is probably
the most unchristian church in America. But he has never been a Muslim!
However, the facts indicate otherwise. He was listed as a Muslim while a young student
in Indonesia and often attended a mosque. Obamas campaign released the statement
that the senator has never been a practicing Muslim.
Yet he was enrolled in the Besuki Primary School, a public school in Jakarta, as a
Muslim. Didnt his mother know what religious affiliation her young son had when she
filled out the enrollment forms? Of course, she knew his father, stepfather, and
grandfather were all Muslims.
Obama clearly admitted to studying the Koran and identified his school as a
Muslim school in his autobiography,
Dreams From My Father. Many of his childhood friends commented on his
Muslim religion, and the media in Indonesia made many references to his Muslim faith.
So, it is cover-up time. Damage control because we are speeding toward the election.
So, he can say, Hey, I have a tendency to misspeak as I did
about my sons.
It is the same way when I spoke about my Muslim faith. It was simply
another example of my normal misspeaking. That harmless tendency is part of my
Informed, educated people know that people can mistakenly say, He has went
or You was, or I seen but for a Jew to say, My Christian
faith, or a Hindu to say, My Baptist faith, or a Methodist to say,
My pagan faith, is downright silly. No one believes that is possible. Same
with Obamas charming tendency to speak about sons he does not have.
Daddy said, If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck,
it must be a duck. Daddy was right. So is my wife.
