Is It Any Wonder People Think Obama Is A Closet Muslim?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A VISIT by Barack Obama to the holiest of Sikh shrines may be cancelled because his advisers do not want the US President to wear a headscarf - fearing that it could fuel false rumours that he is a secret Muslim.


Everyone who enters the Golden Temple in the northern Indian city of Amritsar must cover their head, and the US President`s advisers fear it could fuel false rumours that he is a secret Muslim.

Most tourists cover their heads with a square piece of cloth, thousands of which are given away each day, while many Sikh men, and some women, wear elaborately folded turbans."

My guess is that President Barack Obama is an agnostic or atheist who pretends to be a Christian for political expediency.

Atheists have been demonized by Christian clergy to the extent that Americans would be more comfortable with a murderer rather than an atheist in the White House

I`m not surprised that many Americans think that Obama is a closet Muslim. From day one as president Obama has pandered to Muslims, culminating with his tacit approval of the Ground Zero mosque.

At this point it really doesn`t matter if Obama burns a Koran, nothing will change the perception that Obama is a secret Muslim. Obama might as well dress like Osama when he enters the Sikh shrine.
