BLACK MUSLIM MAN REVERT STORY LIVE ON ROADSIDE2ISLAM

Skooter reporting 09/27/12

It seems that the Queen of Pop was simply being a tongue in cheek when she referred to President Barack Obama as a “black Muslim.”

Madonna issued a statement on Tuesday in response to the severe criticism through her spokeswoman as saying, "I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim – though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don't care what religion Obama is—nor should anyone else in America."

At a Monday night concert in Washington, DC, the Material Girl stirred up the crowd with a vulgarity -ridden speech about the President.

Madonna started like this - “Now, it's so amazing and incredible to think that we have an African-American in the White House … we have a black Muslim in the White House … it means there is hope in this country, and Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man," she said.
