Obama's religious background. This is from a CNN article titled, "Is Obama the WRONG kind of Christian."

Mansfield says Obama is the first president who wasn’t raised in a Christian home. Obama’s mother was an atheist and his grandparents were religious skeptics (Obama’s family has challenged the description of his mother as an atheist. Obama called her “the most spiritually awakened” person he’d ever known, and his sister called their mother an agnostic).

CNN’s Belief Blog: The faith angles behind the biggest stories

Mansfield called Obama’s boyhood a “religious swirl. He was exposed to Catholicism, Islam, and strains of Hinduism and Buddhism while growing up in Indonesia during the 1960s.

“In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology,” Obama said in Mansfield’s book.“On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”

Obama became a Christian while he was a community organizer in Chicago. He joined a predominantly black United Church of Christ. The UCC became the first mainline Protestant denomination to officially support same-sex marriage in 2005.

Obama’s faith showed many of the elements of a liberal Protestant church: an emphasis on the separation of church and state, religious tolerance and the refusal to embrace a literal reading of the Bible.

You forgot Racism, as preached in Rev Wrights church for the twenty years that obama sat in a pew there.

Single white women need a hero.

WE DON'T HAVE ONE, Gloria Steinem.

We never really did. The blacks said it out loud when fighting for their rights. They said "This does not include white women".

What is the problem? Its time to solve it. NOW!

The Opression must end!

<quoted text> yes it can be changed by congress but that takes time the PRES just can't go cutting and cutting the way people think they can
There has to be a law change and that change has to reform how the Mandatory works.
And I do agree everything in the U,S. Budget should be open to cuts.
Have a nice night
Elect Romney and keep filling Congress with TEA Party-backed candidates across the board in 2 weeks you'll see exactly how easily & quickly it can be done.

Otherwise, you're just helping bury the once-greatest nation on earth.

You do agree everything in the U,S. Budget should be open to cuts? Great news - I applaud you for it as a patriot.

Now go prove it - put your votes where your mouth is. Throw the Big-Government statists out of Washington.

The Romneys and Bush's of America,are always eager for war,as long as they don't have to go.Romney,says he supported the Viet Nam war,yet did everything he could do,to keep from serving.He says he supported both Bush wars,but his 5 big strong sons never served.Although their mother Ann,likened their 2 yrs. trying to mormonize the world,to serving in the military.Same with bush2,hid out in the guard,yet says he supported the Nam war.Him and cheney.couldn't wait to start a war,yet both did everything possible to avoid serving in a war zone.Just more phoney tough conservatives.
Go ahead - tell us all about the heroic military service histories of Obama and Joe Biden now.

I'm.gonna assume you only know how to use topix because despite the fact that the campaign websites CLEARLY show that romney is planning to add spending by 6.5 trillion while obama plans to cut spending by 4 trillion, you can't seem to find it.
that or you know some magical second website. So please seeing that you can't seem to find their campaign websites and read, please tell me what you believe is romney's net addition tob the deficit vs obama.
Ill be waiting for your lack of an answer because your a PARTISAN HACK
time for conversing with a partisan hack and fiscal illiterate who describes federal revenue reductions as increases in federal outlay.

You're a lying partisan hack.

Shoo, troll.

Military people are among the stupidest on the planet. Why on Earth do you consider military service as some sort of prerequisite to effective management of a country?

Typical neocon response. That's not the point. You don't see Obama putting millions of lives at risk over fictitious "wmd's". Now we've got another chickenhawk who can't wait to throw our babies onto the bayonets of Israel's enemies. We are on the verge of WWIII and the last thing we need is another neocon chickenhawk. I'm no Obama fan either...we need a Gary Johnson.

Some of the most intelligent people I've worked with (certainly not all) were in the military. The stupidity is primarily in Washington.
