Pictures like this one, and others of Sen. Obama sporting turbans or crescents, circulate in cyberspace along with e-mails warning us that Obama is really a Muslim. As a conservative, as a Christian, and as a Republican, I am deeply embarrassed by this sort of thing, and wish fervently that it would stop.
I oppose Barack Obama’s candidacy because I disagree with just about every policy position he has put forward, and because those positions seem to me underpinned by an essentially Marxist worldview. I oppose him because of his leftist views, which he espouses openly, and that is reason enough. We don’t need to go digging into his grammar school records in Indonesia in order to find reasons not to vote for him, and doing so only makes his critics look desperate and bigoted.
