Obama is not a Muslim

Dear Editor,

If you must keep printing letters by Steve Lorz, would you do your readers a favor and ask him why he invariably refers to President Obama as a Muslim?

It is a FACT that the minimum requirement for being a Muslim is that one subscribe to the Five Pillars of Islam. The second pillar, salah, requires every Muslim to prostrate himself in prayer facing the Kaaba in Mecca five times a day at prescribed times including, at Washington D.C., 12.10 p.m., 2:37 p.m. and 4:54 p.m. Strange that nobody but Lorz has noticed our president ducking out of all public functions to do this. Maybe the Liberal press just suppresses the tens of thousands of pictures that must have recorded these acts.

The fourth pillar, sawm, requires that every Muslim refrain from letting any food or drink pass his lips from sunup to sundown during the entire Islamic month of Ramadan. Again, strangely, there have been no witnesses or reports of this very noticeable behavior being engaged in by Mr. Obama.

No, my ignorant friend Steve, our president may be an Albigensian, a Baptist, a Jain, a Mormon, a Scientologist, a Zoroastrian or an atheist, but what he provably, demonstrably IS NOT is a Muslim.
