After reading this article, I grow more convinced that yes, Americans are unusually stupid.

Quote:
JONESVILLE, S.C. -- The sign in front of a small church in a small town is causing a big controversy in Jonesville, S.C.
Pastor Roger Byrd said that he just wanted to get people thinking. So last Thursday, he put a new message on the sign at the Jonesville Church of God.
It reads: "Obama, Osama, hmm, are they brothers?"

Byrd said that the message wasn't meant to be racial or political.
"It's simply to cause people to realize and to see what possibly could happen if we were to get someone in there that does not believe in Jesus Christ," he said.
When asked if he believes that Barack Obama is Muslim, Byrd said, "I don't know. See it asks a question: Are they brothers? In other words, is he Muslim ? I don't know. He says he's not. I hope he's not. But I don't know. And it's just something to try to stir people's minds. It was never intended to hurt feelings or to offend anybody."
Obama has said repeatedly during his campaign that he is a Christian and attends Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.
Despite some criticism, Byrd says that the message will stay on the sign. He took the issue before his congregation Sunday night, and they decided unanimously to keep it.
Byrd also said he doesn't want it to look like controversy forced him to take the sign down.

If Obama is elected

I do not think he will turn the Lincoln Bedroom into a "Prayer Room." (for the 5 times a day praying).

But. is it a stretch to think that he would put a "Prayer Room" in the Whitehouse?

This idiot just offended a whole religion and claims he didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings?

Individual people are unusually stupid.

Good lord, yes.

But at least Winnipegers aren't Torontonians.

That's pretty stupid, so I guess it's not just limited to us Americans.
Yeah, Ottawa's a close second. It's because they're all Senators fans.

Prayer rooms are there for Muslims, Obama is a crypto-Muslim ergo he will put a prayer room there.

If Barack Hussein Obama is elected President
it is likely there will be a "Muslim prayer room" in the Whitehouse.

this will be a first.
Along with not having an all white male as the President.

If John Sidney McCain III is elected
it is not likely there will be a Muslim prayer room in the Whitehouse
and all of the American Presidents will have been white males.

Um, no. I asked you to clarify exactly what you're getting at, not what fearmongering bigots on the airwaves are getting at. Unless you've turned into one of them.

Think he'll remove the stripper pole that Bill Clinton had installed?
