Spc, I think Obama is just fine. The Osama slip is a verbal thing and doesn't really apply to type unless one is in the habit of typing Osama a lot. Barack is fine too. Yes, Hussein is his middle name, but like just about every other person I know he doesn't go around asking for his full name to be used and people don't generally feel obliged to inject a middle name without special reason. And just as it isn't your fault that Barack's father was Muslim, it isn't Barack's fault either. Maybe give the H a rest, huh? That said, I'll defend your right to use it, just not your choice to.
Stokingfull, I'm not particularly faithful or religious (actually I'm borderline atheist, I still have pangs of hope that there is a God), though I try to live by the lessons I learned in my Catholic upbringing. However, I don't take kindly to casting aspersions upon others regarding their adherence to a given faith. There are many sayings and tenets of faith that I could drop at this point speaking to the danger of calling people out on their sins and unfaithfulness, but there is no need, we all know them. How about we all just try to keep our own game in check, debate the issues (or God forbid actually talk about Coal!), and let God sort out who's been a good Christian.
