This week Barack Hussein Obama (that’s right, we have received permission to use his middle name) said that “if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” While that statement is patently false (we’d be somewhere between the 34th and 45th largest), it’s just a bit unnerving to see his embrace of Islam when just weeks ago he was telling Muslim leaders that the U.S. is not a Christian country or a Jewish country (when in fact if you took the populations of these groups separately the U.S. would probably be both the top Christian country and the second most populous Jewish nation). I hate to quibble about numbers, but our president brought it up.
