Obama's Grandma Changes Islam Story

From Little Green Footballs: "Yesterday’s edition of USA Today had a story about Barack Obama’s grandmother in Kenya, in which she slams the Clinton campaign for circulating photos of Obama in Muslim garb—and then states that she is a Christian: Obama’s grandma slams ‘untruths’."

"Obama’s grandfather had converted to Islam from Roman Catholicism and taken the name Hussein, Sarah Obama said, but his children had inherited only the name, not the religion. Each person should be able to choose how they worshipped, she said. “In the world of today, children have different religions from their parents,” she said. She, too, is a Christian.
Just one little problem with this statement.

In April of last year, Sarah Hussein Obama told the New York Times she is a devout Muslim.

Sarah Hussein Obama, who is his stepgrandmother but whom Mr. Obama calls his grandmother, still rises at 5 a.m. to pray before tending to her crops and the three orphans she has taken in. “I am a strong believer of the Islamic faith,” Ms. Obama, 85, said in a recent interview in Kenya.
We haven't seen anything about this in the mainstream media yet, but chances are it won't receive much mention. And, if it does, no doubt there will be much said about Ms. Obama's advanced age. However, she expressed herself quite clearly on the subject of "untruths" about her grandson. One should not lie while berating other liars.

To quote Perry Mason during many a courtroom scene: "The question is, Madam.....were you lying then or are you lying now?"

You can't have it both ways, Grandma.
