Many of you know about Madalyn Murray O'Hair's role in getting mandatory Bible reading in public schools ruled unconstitutional.  What most people don't know, though, is that her son William, on whose behalf the case was filed, has become a 200 percent rabid fundie.  He now leads the Religious Freedom Coalition, a religious-right outfit.  Earlier today, Murray penned an op-ed for WorldNutDaily in which he argued Obama's speech to Planned Parenthood yesterday proves that he's a radical Mooslim.

President Barack Hussein Obama seems to love the death of others, and he seems to believe that God should bless those who murder the innocent. Not since Manasseh, son of Hezekiah, has a national leader asked for blessings through the sacrifice of babies. Manasseh sacrificed his own son to the Canaanite god Moloch, who was worshiped with the burning of children. Barack Obama has crossed God’s red line by petitioning Him to bless abortionists. Barack Obama now rivals Manasseh.
[snip]
There is only one modern religion in which God is openly petitioned to assist in murder, and that can be heard in the cry of “Allahu Akbar” by Muslims as they slaughter Christians in Nigerian villages or set off bombs at the Boston Marathon. Perhaps if Obama had paid more attention at church as an adult, and less attention at mosque as a child, he would not ask God to bless those who kill the innocent.
So in other words, Obama is not only a Muslim, but he's no different from Islamist terrorists.  Even by WorldNutDaily standards, this is breathtakingly extreme.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    and the GOP opened up an office in Egypt?  I mean, between this guy and assorted wingnuts saying the president is a Muslim, and Louis Gohmert and Michelle Bachmann saying the administration is run by the Muslim Brotherhood, you gotta wonder.

    The Old Testament is full of instructions from their deity to smite Amalekites.  Women, kids, goats, chickens, everything.

    Hezekiah was a piker

    1 Samuel 15.3

    Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.'"
    Deuteronomy
    Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him." (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)
    Annoying kids in Kings
    From there Elisha went up to Bethel. While he was on his way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him. "Go up baldhead," they shouted, "go up baldhead!" The prophet turned and saw them, and he cursed them in the name of the Lord. Then two shebears came out of the woods and tore forty two of the children to pieces. (2 Kings 2:23-24 NAB)
    "Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, "Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children. But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin your task right here at the Temple." So they began by killing the seventy leaders. "Defile the Temple!" the LORD commanded. "Fill its courtyards with the bodies of those you kill! Go!" So they went throughout the city and did as they were told." (Ezekiel 9:5-7 NLT)
    Babies and Livestock again
    And at midnight the LORD killed all the firstborn sons in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn son of the captive in the dungeon. Even the firstborn of their livestock were killed. Pharaoh and his officials and all the people of Egypt woke up during the night, and loud wailing was heard throughout the land of Egypt. There was not a single house where someone had not died. (Exodus 12:29-30 NLT)
    God Will Kill the Children of Sinners
    If even then you remain hostile toward me and refuse to obey, I will inflict you with seven more disasters for your sins. I will release wild animals that will kill your children and destroy your cattle, so your numbers will dwindle and your roads will be deserted. (Leviticus 26:21-22 NLT)
    More Rape and Baby Killing

    Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off. The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children. (Isaiah 13:15-18 NLT)

    Never was much of a fan of M M O'hair. She may have been correct in her historic suit but she was a gunfire in her own way.

    right wing extreme religious-political impulses/posturings, it's extraordinarily difficult to make out.  (I've earnestly tried to define it in some fashion for years with little success.)

    My impression of this religidiocy about Obama is that it's a horrible form of venting by these sorts about losing majority in the culture in several related dimensions at roughly the same time.  They're sort of right that the 2008 election was indicative of their defeat- not itself the turning point but the big signpost that the culture will never again be or become as they desire.

    Throwing all this crap at Obama...well, he's persuasively not the militant liberal secularist they wish for most as target for their insults and rage.  (Richard Dawkins is largely what's available in that department.)  So they reach to their other bête noir and traditional competition for preeminence in the world, Islam.

    Not since Manasseh, son of Hezekiah, has a national leader asked for blessings through the sacrifice of babies
    A cursory glance through wikipedia dates Manasseh as living in the mid-600s BCE, and shows that child sacrifice has been a thing in multiple cultures since then.  This is not something difficult to find out, if one thinks to look.

    I've noticed this before:  it is a curious trait of a certain kind of American Christian -- heavily overlapping but not limited to fundamentalists -- to view world history as encompassing the Bible and then skipping directly to Columbus.
