World Numb-Nutz Daily: Obama's Wedding Ring Debunked.



Attention WND Followers:

The story about Obama's wedding ring is not true.
Something very interesting from WND:
NEW YORK – As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues.

Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992.

Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no God except Allah.”
 
So anyway.
Contrary to what has been claimed in various online sources, President Obama's gold wedding ring does not feature the Muslim saying "No God but Allah" in Arabic script. It bears no visible inscription at all, only an abstract design.

So, the allegation is that Barack Obama's wedding ring, made in Indonesia, bears an inscription of the Shahada (Islamic declaration of faith) in Arabic (never mind that practically everyone in Indonesia, including Muslims, speaks Indonesian). The Shahada is typically rendered in English as follows: "There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah." The idea, of course, is that this proves Obama is a Muslim, not the Christian he claims to be. - Urban Legends.
 

Listen up:  If you want people to believe you when you say things like "Same sex marriage will cause the collapse of civilization."  Or, "The Liturgy will save the world."  Or as you make your living blogging with the desire to be taken seriously, don't go posting that kind of crap - especially if you are a priest.

Something to keep in mind:  Obama is NOT a religious man.

  1. An enthusiastically abortion/gay marriage supporting Muslim? Come on. I always thought the allegation was ridiculous given his political stances. He certainly panders to Muslims, but that's par for the course on the left.

    Btw I can read Arabic and those are not Arabic letters, though I can see how an imaginative mind *might* see the word "Allah". But the shahada would go around the ring, not have each individual word stacked like that.

    The article debunking the WND makes a wrong assumption, however. Most people in Indonesia do speak Indonesian, butthey would know an recognize

  2. ... the Shada in Arabic - in fact it's not considered authentic unless it's in Arabic - and all Muslims pray in Arabic, an verses of the Quran are always in Arabic. The Arabic language is essential to the Muslim religion, even if day-to-day speech is another language.

    What is up with the crazy formatting?

  3. I'm with Mercury, Obama is no more a Muslim than he is a Christian.
    He aint a practicing anything.But I am not American so my opinion means nuts.
