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.

I don't believe Obama is part of any religious group, per se. I do believe he pussyfoots around and this is likely to cause him more problems for him and his family personally than it will for anyone else. Let the man take a rest from political life and let him search for his own truths.

One thing that tells me he is devoted to Islam is the fact that in the Koran it says that it is OK to lie in order to gain the outcome that one wants and as a matter of fact is encouraged. We all know the amount of lies that Obama has made since he has been in office and even before that.

I always vote a straight Democratic ticket because our nations poor, working people, the disabled, minorities and women do better, have more opportunities, when more Democrats are in office. I do not care if President Obama wears a Muslim ring. He has brought this country through very difficult times. Your rhetoric is distracting from the real issues in this election,

So what if he hears the ring, so what if he is Muslim. Does anybody remember the cold war and around every corner the bogeyman was a Russian? These days the Illuminati want you to believe that Muslims are the bogeyman. They even orchestrate false flag events to make you believe it. Now you are lining up to condemn the president for wearing a ring. God is God no matter what name you call him by, perhaps the ring is a constant reminder for him of his connection with God.

I am truly sick of this continuous fight to dump on Obama. Religion should not be a question; whether or not he is Muslim or a Druid, his faith is free under our Constitution and is a private matter. I look at two candidates and I see a President who is trying his darndest to make a difference but has been hamstrung by a Congress too beholden (on both sides of the aisle) to Corporate America, fighting for reelection to complete the changes he'd planned, before he was saddled by 8 yrs.' of Republican wars and over-defense spending. He is being challenged by another Republican who would create more opportunities for the Middle Class - he appears by this to mean someone who earns far above the $32,000 I earned before I retired. He also would "help" the Middle Class by denying women's health rights, continuing the unfair healthcare practices of the insurance companies and destroying what's left or our national heritage parklands and wilderness areas with more low-lease grilling, mining and lumbering rights. In addition, he does not believe, in spite of overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary, that we have a real environmental problem on our hands and should be leading a fight against it as an example to the rest of the world, instead of sticking our oar into other nations' beliefs and right to make their own laws. After all, Mr. Romney's sabre-rattling in his European/Israel tour during the recent Olympics showed such glowing understanding of diplomacy.... i could go on, but what's the use? Either you agree that Corporate greed in America must be curtailed in favor of reasonable profits (I can't imagine anyone in the workforce really being worth a 6-figure salary, let alone some of the multi-million dollar bonuses some of them pull down) and providing for our poor, our elderly and the health of our environment and our citizens!

I thought there was freedom of religion in the U.S. I thought people strive to judge a man by what he does, and Barack Obama has shown without doubt, that he CARES about all Americans, not just the rich 1%. Maybe he converted to Christianity: according to even a prominent Republican, a lot of Muslims have been converting. I just don't understand why so many jump on any tiny perceived difference to judge a person , instead of looking at their whole persona!!! If you vote Republican, you ae voting for that 1% who do not give a damn about the average American citizen. THINK, people. Think for yourselves!

So what !!!???? when there is freedom of religion in a country so what if the president belongs to any religion when even a weak president can't do anything and i don't think so if he is a Muslim and what goodness he has done for the Muslims yet and again you want a president like George W. Bush!!?? and that could be possible if that ring is his father's memorable gift to him and maybe he is doing that for his father

I don't care what religion he is. I will vote for him again because the Contraceptive Mandate and Medicaid Expansion gives us a chance to humanely reduce our population growth to a sustainable level. This is the most crucial thing a president could do at this point in our history, and Obama is doing it.

Do you mean they are not vetting them and letting all of the liberal BS go through!? Isn't that what you want!? Care2 ALSO has political boards...this is based on a Political Board and the last time I heard people could add articles pertaining to whatever category they wanted...are you trying to censor what you don't want to see!? Seeing as how you apparently do not do politics Bindy what the hell are you even reading this article for!? Go back to your save the planet, fish, bees, bugs and trees topics!! If you do not like it or find it interesting then stay the heck away from it!! That's what I do if I am not interested in something!

It's quite obvious this is a "gang" attack here which again is truly pathetic of how the liberals work! Come on in gangs..attack...ridicule the article and the poster...try and emote the story because confrontation never works well with them and thew list goes on.

And Obama is the supposed President of the USA which is a Christian nation.. while wearing a ring that swears his allegiance to Allah AFTER going around and apologizing to terrorist nations and the world telling them the US is such a horrible country and you are all fine with this!? I swear the mentality of the left keep sinking deeper and deeper every day!! This mans policies have been and are destroying this country ever since he has been in as President and some are too blind to see it! he is an has been surrounded by Muslims and the Muslim Brotherhood which wants to take YOUR freedoms away and mine..I refuse to let that happen and the IF POSSIBLE....try and look at the bigger picture and imagine one day ALL of your rights are taken away!!!!! If Obama happens to...heaven forbid..end up another 4 years YOURS FREEDOMS are gone!!!

This ia suppose to be a country with religious freedom.
Obama's religion is strictly his business. I have seen no sign or activity indicating that he would impose his religion on the rest of us.
There are those who will find fault with his breathing. We just can't take them seriously.
Obama is a wonderful man. I hope he wins another 4 years.
So far he has taken no one's freedom away, on the contrary he has work towards greater freedom for the downthroden.
You don't klike him, don't vote for him, but leave his private life out of your criticism.

@ Carol, Sorry that you don't seem to like people who are completely behind our President. He has done so much for our country and to say he has apologized is not being truthful. Bush left our country with many other nations almost hating us, Obama has been able to change that. He has kept unemployment steadily improving, got rid of Bin Laden, ended the Iraq war (although we are heavily in debt still), saved our auto industry and is trying to make it possible for everyone to have access to health care. How can that be bad? You are being lead off a cliff like a lemming if you continue to believe all the crap faux noise and other right wing-nuts are feeding you. Take the time to look up Obama's wedding ring in before you continue with this spreading of a farce. You are making a fool of yourself at other's expense.

So, if you are going to look past Black Pride, how about Romney harassing a gay kid when he was "young and stupid"(Romney, not the kid)??? Did Obama ever bully anyone??? What is worse? How about those temple garments that Romney wears? Doesn't that mean that possibly, just possibly, he is really into his Mormonism and will do like what he said, something about making pro life changes for this country. HUH??
What about those apples?

More unfounded Republican propagranda. I can't imagine Michelle would buy a wedding ring that said that, but that been said, we have freedom of religion in the USA. So what if Obama is a Christian, Catholic, Muslin, or whatever. As long as someones faith do not hurt people or animals then I think they should be able to worship like they want. There are extremeist in every religion. The tea-partiers are the extremeist for the Christian religion.

I have heard more people say this ever since the debate..the only thing Biden won was the show of how inconsiderate, thoughtless, arrogant and just a plain a*s hole he was! I could not even get to hear all of Paul Ryan's responses because of Biden's BIG mouth!! but you just go ahead and think that Paul Ryan took a beating..LOL

Australia's leader is an unmarried, cohabiting, female, atheist. None of this impinges on her Political abilities.

I really don't get with the general American religious bigotry. As long as religious affiliation does not dictate ones attitudes to the management of the country or attitudes towards American citizens I fail to see why it should concern anybody. Or are you worried Romney's adherence to restrictive Mormon laws will be paramount to American laws should he win?

Well, of course this explains why he's banned churches, put all American women in burqas and made Sharia law compulsory.

Honestly, as conspiracy theories go, this is feebler than the shape-shifting lizards from space. Romney's campaign must be doing worse than the polls suggest if they have to fall back on this kind of thing.

As usual, I think the Republicans are grasping at straws to continue their quest to undermine President Obama any way they can. President Obama is a Christian; why does he have to keep telling people the same thing over and over? Just because you don't like the truth, doesn't make it any less true. Just as telling a lie over and over doesn't make it any more true.

Robert..I just happen to glance on your post again saying.... It all depends on which branch of Islam he supported...he supports the Muslim know the ones who practice Sharia Law!? Radicals!! That is enough for me to know what kind of person he is!

MJM..Put a sock in it!!

Sadie..OPEN YOUR EYES and do some don't take much!!

Parvez...If Obama happens to be re-elected (which I am not worried about) Our US of America will be doomed forever and we will never have the once great country we do!! To you that might be a me and millions of other Americans it is not! We take it VERY seriously!

Anthony...If he had the chance he would!!

Tom says: As long as religious affiliation does not dictate ones attitudes to the management of the country or attitudes towards American citizens I fail to see why it should concern anybody.

This is the problem Tom...he is trying to force people who are against abortions to pay for those who want to get them which is against their religious beliefs...this is WRONG. Then he takes out a National Day of Prayer from the White House and adds a Muslim holy day!? What is wrong with this picture!?

Julie..Romney does not and has not pushed his religious views onto anyone!

I don't care what religion a person is as long as they don't try to shove it off on me. Religion is like a penis: It's fine to have one, and it's fine to be proud of it, but please don't whip it out and start swinging it around, and quit trying to shove it down everyone's throat.

You may not care about what Religion someone is as President but if and when that President has a hidden agenda then I DO care! And we are voting for a President who is committed to this country not a liar like the current President. If you can't see what a fake that man is then you truly are lost! When a President associates with the Muslim Brotherhood if you don't know who they are then you better study up because if you don't think they would try and force their Islam on you if they EVER got a good hold here in this country then you truly are asleep at the switch!!

Watch with your own eyes the sworn oath, known as the "Law of Consecration," that US Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has raised his arm to the square and vowed to obey, an oath that requires faithful Mormons to consecrate 100% of their current AND FUTURE time, talents and everything they will ever be blessed with, to the Mormon church and it's goal to achieve a worldwide theocracy headed by Mormons.
