I’m a Muslim But …

Here’s Why I Admire the Catholic Church by Tamer Nashef 

First, allow me to start this short article with what might be deemed a startling confession: I am not a Catholic, nor am I even a Christian. In fact, I am a secular Muslim and an avid reader of philosophy and history with an unswerving commitment to the unmitigated truth no matter where it is even, nay especially, if it runs counter to commonly held beliefs.

… [It’s ten pages, single-spaced, and he calls that short!  LOL]

I have not written this essay to whitewash Catholic history. Nor am I claiming that the Catholic Church has been nothing but infallible or that its record has been immaculate.

Obama: Worst Jobs President Ever

Obama points to the fact that unemployment dropped from 7.9% when he took office to 5% as of last month. But this is misleading in the extreme, since it ignores all those who want jobs, but who have given up looking because the economy is so bad.

Discouraged workers not unemployed

During Obama’s time in the White House, labor force participation dropped farther and faster than under any other administration.

OBAMA worst employment

Other statistics that show how horrific Obama’s economic leadership has truly been:

  • Percentage of families in which no one is employed = Up by 1.9%
  • Number of Americans living below the poverty line = Up by 3.5%
  • Number of Americans on food stamps = Up 13 million
  • Number of small businesses = Down by more than 6 million
  • The number of Americans who own homes = Down by 5.6%
  • Real median household income = Down by 2.3%
