But, out of pure entertainment.
I was and am much more interested in the psychology of a Muslim being elected to office post 9/11. No, I am also not one of those folks that claims Barack Husein Obama is secretly kneeling facing Mecca from the White House. Truthfully, I think Obama only worships at the alter of Obama, is a humanist and disdains all religion as the crutch of the weak minded. BUT, I also know that as Judaism is from the womb of the Mother --that Muslims are beget from the loins of their Fathers. My contention has always been that whether President Obama professes or practices Islam is irrelevant --in the eyes of the "Arab Street" (that we're always so concerned about), he IS a Muslim. His Father was a Muslim. His loins were Muslim. They beget a Muslim.
I never could understand how people could argue with this. I feel it's beyond debate.
Why am I thinking about this again in 2014?
Because of Mariam Yahya Ibrahim.
"Ibrahim was condemned to die by hanging after she declined to profess she is a Muslim, the religion of her father. Sharia law considers her a Muslim and does not recognize her marriage to a Christian. She is unlikely to change her mind despite giving birth in prison, says her husband Daniel Wani, who also is a Christian.
The court convicted her of apostasy and adultery two weeks ago. At the time, she was eight months pregnant. She gave birth to a baby girl this week at a Khartoum prison, where she's detained with Martin, her 20-month-old son.
Despite languishing in prison with two infants, she's holding firm to her beliefs, according to her husband.
"There is pressure on her from Muslim religious leaders that she should return to the faith," Wani told CNN in a TV exclusive. "She said, 'How can I return when I never was a Muslim? Yes, my father was a Muslim, but I was brought up by my mother.' "

Husband: All I can do is pray
Wani said his wife is a practicing Christian, more so than him, and even had their son baptized." (source)
In the eyes of Shari law, she is a Muslim regardless of her own beliefs because her FATHER is a Muslim.
If anyone should be rushing to do something about this, it's Obama! Her husband is an American and her children are therefore American and she is slotted to become and American due to those things... Yet our President, that could find himself sentenced to the same fate given his lineage, does nothing.
