Once a Muslim is always a Muslim. Yes-He can say he is not but you can't think the way he thinks. Are we becoming a third world country or are we there now!!!!! What is he selling but false hopes to the people.

Veteran,

Under your logic, a child born of poor parents can't do anything but be poor. A man with liberal parents could not possible become a conservative (or vice versa). Obama, because his father was born a Muslim and his mother a Christian, could not become a Christian. It's in one's blood, right? That is the most UN-American thing I've heard. That what one's parents are the determinants of our future views, and the content of who we are goes against the very notion that we (me and you) get to decide who we are. If we did not think that, we would have never begun this American experiment in 1775.

I don't care if you agree with him or not. I do care that your reasoning skills are so poor and this is what guides you.

You and the pastor should get together to have some coffee and discuss politics. You both seem just as ignorant and dumb.

the sign has been taken down....this whole thing has gotten way out of hand. I have read posts by other people saying they hope that pastor byrd gets killed, calling him horrible names, and putting down the whole south because he made a mistake. I guess everyone seems to think that they are perfect. I don't agree that he should have put that sign up, however, can't people just drop the whole thing? I guess America has nothing better to do. The south may be goofy, but america has gone to the dogs. GOD BLESS this pitiful country!

I can't believe how everyone has got so upset over someone who may not even be president!  How do we know that he hasn't been here for 20 years training and plotting to become president...hasn't it been said that if America is destroyed it will be from the inside?!  This guy says things that seem to good to be true....He for one will not bring on world peace.  Why wont he pledge to the American flag?  I have never seen so much nonsense in America!
