Barack Hussein Obama Practiced Islam, Now Runs From It w/ Warp Speed

By Debbie Schlussel
Like I said before: Barack Hussein Obama–Once a Muslim, Always a Muslim. If Obama is really no longer a Muslim, why does he keep lying about it, instead of copping to it and then disowning it?
The Barack Hussein Obama cover-up of his Muslim past continues. But so do the ever widening cracks in the cover-up. Thanks to the many readers who sent me this article from Thursday’s L.A. Times on Obama’s mosque worship:

As a boy in Indonesia, Barack Obama crisscrossed the religious divide. . . . In the neighborhood mosque, he bowed to Allah. . . .
No one knows how voters will react to a candidate with an early exposure to Islam, a religion that remains foreign to many Americans.


Obama’s campaign aides have emphasized his strong Christian beliefs and downplayed any Islamic connection. The candidate was raised “in a secular household in Indonesia by his stepfather and mother,” his chief spokesman, Robert Gibbs, said in a statement in January after false reports began circulating that Obama had attended a radical madrasa, or Koranic school, as a child.
“To be clear, Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian who attends the United Church of Christ in Chicago,” Gibbs’ Jan. 24 statement said. In a statement to The Times on Wednesday, the campaign offered slightly different wording, saying: “Obama has never been a practicing Muslim.” The statement added that as a child, Obama had spent time in the neighborhood’s Islamic center.
His former Roman Catholic and Muslim teachers, along with two people who were identified by Obama’s grade-school teacher as childhood friends, say Obama was registered by his family as a Muslim at both of the schools he attended.
That registration meant that during the third and fourth grades, Obama learned about Islam for two hours each week in religion class.
The childhood friends say Obama sometimes went to Friday prayers at the local mosque. “We prayed but not really seriously, just following actions done by older people in the mosque. But as kids, we loved to meet our friends and went to the mosque together and played,” said Zulfin Adi, who describes himself as among Obama’s closest childhood friends.
The campaign’s national press secretary, Bill Burton, said Wednesday that the friends were recalling events “that are 40 years old and subject to four decades of other information.” Obama’s younger sister, Maya Soetoro, said in a statement released by the campaign that the family attended the mosque only “for big communal events,” not every Friday.

The most hilarious thing about all of this is the speed with which Barack Hussein Obama and his staff are running from Islam, and the lies and spin they keep trying to attach to what is, in fact, true. He was a Muslim. He was educated as a Muslim. He was a practicing Muslim.
Why won’t he admit it? And now disown it? And since he won’t do those things, would you trust him?
If so, I have some land under a bridge to sell you. But, don’t worry, it’s not in Indonesia or next to a mosque.
I warned about this in December and was roundly attacked by far leftist nutjobs and even some misguided conservatives wanting attention and yearning for the world to love them for their “tolerance” a/k/a stupidity.
If only they knew a good recipe for Crow. They could sup at a giant buffet.

just wait till Obama rediscovers his “childhood religion” in a very special and moving episode of Oprah

sultan_knish on March 19, 2007 at 12:53 pm

If he claimed to be proud of his heritage, then why was he trying to cover up his muslim backround? Perhaps there is more digging up to do that needs to be done in order to see if he has more skeletons in his closet. I would be very wary on the type of cadidates who are running for office, exspecially folks like him. What ever more information he is hiding should be disclosed to the public.

Jew Chick on March 19, 2007 at 12:58 pm

You will not find a single presidential candidate that will “disown” or “denounce” Islam. Doing so will be political suicide.

ConservativesLovePuns(descent) on March 19, 2007 at 1:13 pm

Muslims are the JEWS of today…Inquisition memories?

EminemsRevenge on March 19, 2007 at 1:25 pm

I dislike him because of his socialist policies. With that said, I’d have SOME respect for him if he was honest about his past, but he’s not. Our enemy is islam and he can’t even confront it. How the heck does he think anyone that has a brain can think he could fight it as President?

Highrise on March 19, 2007 at 2:12 pm

His muzlum father, and his muzlum step-father would be proud of him.
Way-To-Go, Osama Obama – keep the infidel guessing.

Thee_Bruno on March 19, 2007 at 2:19 pm

Islamic warriors attack us and we respond with force. Eminenema says that’s an “Inquisition.” No one gave a damn about the Religion of Satan until they attacked us. We never interfered with their Devil worshop in Mecca. Political Islam is on the warpath all over the world. No one attacked them. They are on an unholy crusade to “dominate” the world for Allah. PS: They don’t call him Osama Obama for nothing.

FreethinkerNY on March 19, 2007 at 2:28 pm

See FreeThinkerNY you are absolutely right. But here’s the thing. There is an almost endless supply Muslims around the world (1.4 billion and growing) compared to 300 Million Americans. This is not a war we can win with weapons. Unless your suggesting we nuke the whole Muslim population which would give us all radiation contamination. This war can only be fought by forcing Muslims to see the satanic anti-Semite, perverted, deceptive, anti-Christian,anti-women,barbaric, illogical nature of their false religion,false prophet and false God (BTW ALLAH was never once mentioned in the Bible or the Torah). The only way to end all this madness is to force Muslims to accept the truth about the biggest lie in the history of mankind called “Islam”. If we could find a way to do that, to expose the fraud of Islam then we could save ourselves and 1.4 billion morons. But like many of you have already said you can’t reason with people who have no grasp of “logic” or “sanity”.

the_don on March 19, 2007 at 2:57 pm

Come one…..say it with me….Never Trust a Scuzlim…..even if he is clean and articulate.
Barack Hussein Obama may not be the Manchurian Candidate….but he may well be the Madrassa Candidate.

DDB on March 19, 2007 at 3:21 pm

So what if he’s a Muslim? Oh that’s right, they’re ALL TERRORISTS and we should kill all of them because obviously they can’t be trusted.

Vko on March 19, 2007 at 4:09 pm

P.S. Snopes totally debunked this a while ago:

Vko on March 19, 2007 at 4:30 pm

If he reached an age of accountability in his Islamic sect, and later denied his faith, he would very likely be subject to the death penality. Once a Muslim, always a Muslim, or else you can lose your head.

Dr.Dale on March 19, 2007 at 4:33 pm

Obama is a stealth Muzzie. By the way, Vko, no one is saying they are ALL terrorists. The thing is, Muzzies will not get up and denounce terrorism, beheadings, etc. What are we supposed to think? By my definition of terrorist, the majority of Muzzies are terrorists. Poor Osabama–he has to be a Muzzie or they will consider him a traitor. Leaving Islam is not an option–it is punishable by death.

lexi on March 19, 2007 at 4:33 pm

Why is anyone surprised by the deceit of yet another Scuzlim?He’s just being a good “boy” & using the tools the rest of the scum use.It’s called al-taqiyya (dissimulation: you don’t owe the truth to un-believers/infidels).Will the West never learn???

billybob on March 19, 2007 at 4:56 pm

Vko needs to read the Qu’ran. Any Muslim who turns their back on other Muslims or converts to Christianity is instructed by the Qu’ran to be killed by “good” Muslims. So with that said If Barrack Obama was to go to the Middle East we would be assassinated by “good” Muslims.
Qur’an 48:13 “If any believe not in Allah and His Messenger, We have prepared a Blazing Fire for them!”
Qur’an 48:28 “It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth (Islam), that he may make it superior to every other religion, exalting it over them. Allah is a sufficient Witness. Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. Those who are with him are severe with Infidel unbelievers.”
Qur’an 9:33 “He has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the Religion of Truth (Islam) to make it superior over all religions, even though the disbelievers detest (it).”
Qur’an 9:66 “Make no excuses: you have rejected Faith after you had accepted it. If We pardon some of you, We will punish others amongst you, for they are disbelievers.”
Qur’an 20:100 “Whoever turns from it, he shall bear a burden on the Day of Doom. Grievous evil will the load on them. We shall gather the Mujrimun (disbeliever) blue or blind-eyed with thirst…. My Lord will blast them and scatter them as dust.”
Qur’an 21:06 “Not one of the populations which We destroyed believed: will these believe? …So we saved whom We pleased, and We destroyed the disbelievers.”
This verse of the Qu’ran is one of the most troubling.
Qur’an 4:90 “If they turn back from Islam, becoming renegades, seize them and kill them wherever you find them.”
Here is my evidence.If Barrack Obama wins the 2008 election he will assassinated by a Muslim and he or she will justify it with that ayah/verse I just mentioned.
Qur’an 8:39 “So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).”
Qur’an 8:52 “They denied and rejected the revelations of Allah, and Allah destroyed them, punishing them for their crimes: for Allah is strict, severe in punishment.”
Qur’an 3:85 “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (Surrender), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who are losers.”
Mark my words If Obama wins the election he will be assassinated by a fellow Muslim for turning his back on Islam. He cant run his Muslim past his name gives it right away.

the_don on March 19, 2007 at 5:16 pm

Please, the_don, don’t confuse the issue with facts! 😉 Is there “wiggle room” in Islam for an age of accountability?

There is an axis of evil, but that axis of evil is in USA, better picture of this axis of evil is emerging day by day, groups that are part of this axis of evil; Strussian followers the neo-cons, the Christian and Jewish Zionist, greedy corporations and most dangerous of all, military industrial complex! This is marriage of convenience and the new enemy is Muslim, the so called Islamo-facist, an oxymoron!

Not to be redundant, but isn’t “Ole’ Barrack” now an APOSTATE? Aren’t apostates immediately marked for death (by beheading)?
And a comment to “muslimandproud”. Get a life.

Codekeyguy on March 19, 2007 at 10:41 pm

Your name indicates that you are proud the be Muslim. Why is that? Are you proud that you embrace a faith (Cult) that induces people to kill themselves and intentionally target innocent people? Are you proud of the fact that you treat women as property? Are you proud of the fact that there are Muslim countries who still practice slavery? Are you proud of the fact that your religion has no tolerance for any other faith except your 8th century mind set? Are you proud of the fact that you are incapable of independent thought and can only spout what your controllers (Read: Imams) tell you to say and think? Are you proud of the fact that there isn’t a Muslim country anywhere in the world that is not a third world hell hole? The exception is Turkey and that is only because they have a secular government and not a Muslim theocracy. Or maybe we should get down to the basics. Are you proud of the fact that the founder of your cult was a pedophile? Gee, I don’t see too much to be proud of!

Architect on March 20, 2007 at 7:03 am

Just a quick comment for all…. especially the nitwit who is proud to be Muslim: Muhammad was a looter, a pillager, a rapist, a pedophile, and a murderer. He didn’t show up until the early 600’s. He wrote a book that worships war in the name of God. Go ahead, prove me wrong, nitwit! Do a passage by passage comparison of the Old/New Testaments versus the Q’uran. No contest. And, for anyone who is interested, all you have to do is google “the fall of islam”, it’s all there for you to see. If there is an endtime or Revelation period, those who follow the “Satanic Verses” are in deep crap! Muhammad may have been a prophet but, unfortunately he was a prophet of doom, for all muzlims!

FreeAmerican on March 20, 2007 at 7:38 am

i dont have to prove idiots like you wrong. Christianity is no religion. there are a thousand bibles i can make my own bible reading breakfast, that my friend proves you wrong. all the drunkards and pedophiles in the US have bibles in there names. In Islam there is only one Holy Quran, If the US cant but Islam with its money that doesnt make it a war religion. Islam stood against racism from the beginning and gave blacks and women equal rights something the US didnt do till after a civil war and you still see dumbasses like you living in this country. so go fuck yourself. If you had read the Quran you would have converted by now cause no more peaceful religion than Islam that is a way of life. But ignorant people like you cant read.

muslimandproud on March 20, 2007 at 8:17 am

sorry this is for the ignorant idiot that wrote before you, like i said before, Islam teaches muslims not to submit for the devil no matter what the cost and like pres Chavez said Bush is the devil ( and he smells like sulfur ) however there are extremists in Islam but not even close to the numbers of extremist christians when all of europe launched a crusade to kill muslims and jews in jerusalem and salah eddin forgave them after he won the war and let them go to europe alive, the only extremists in the muslim world are those groups who dealt with the us like alqaeda and saddam. One more thing if u look at history no more country more aggressive than the us or launched more wars than the US and Islam is the only religion standing against US bullying on this planet cause everyone else can be bought by US dollars

muslimandproud on March 20, 2007 at 8:23 am

you miserable, ignorant, hateful no good mother fuckers, this guy cokekeyguy tells me to get a life. people like you pieces of shit need to get a life cause its not me who spends his time writing stupid articles full of hatred. u stupid devil worshippers. u kill, drink and smoke weed and say we are christians, soon ull say jesus was a drug addict and were following him. U guys are all pathetic. he guy go smoke some coke

muslimandproud on March 20, 2007 at 8:29 am

Thanks Debbie, this needs to be said and often.
Snopes gets it right on urban legends,
but politics is not their strong suit.
Obama is untried, and doesnt have a sure foundation.
And if he is so unislamic now,
then why did he pick such a strange church to join ?

Egyptoid on March 20, 2007 at 8:41 am

I believe that Obama’s black separatist Church that he attends, is more an issue than whether he is an actual Muslim or not.
Either way, the silence he generates over both issues is defeaning.

kgs59 on March 20, 2007 at 8:54 am

There are thousands of Quarans too. I can make my own while eating breakfast, although copying the text would probably make me throw up. Christianity was a religion seven centuries before your cult came on the scene and Judeism was a religion for thousands of years before Islam. If you’d care to read your own Quaran and Hadiths you would know that the Prophet (A pestilence be upon him) used portions of both religions and the old and new testaments when he was cobbling together his cult. Islam still practices racism and slavery and you’re even sicker than I thought if you think giving women rights means that their husbands have the right of life and death over them, they cannot be educated, they can’t leave the house without a male member, they can’t drive and oh year, how about those honor killings for those women unlucky enough to get raped. And as you mentioned, my country did have a Civil War just to make sure there was no slavery and hundereds of thousands of Americans gave their lives to make sure of that. In fact, if you want to see slavery today, you would have to go to Muslim Sudan. By the way, I have read the Quaran, and it and the Hadiths are a prescription for misery and death. And your comment about how the Crusades proves just how ignorant (Intentionally or otherwise) you are. Europe launched the Crusades in response to attacks by Muslims on the Holy Land and Europe, not the other way around. And resorting to vulgarity really doesn’t help to get your ideas (As ignorant and limited as they are) accross! One last point. You call us “Devil Worshipers”, but Allah was the tribal diety of Muhammad (Disease be upon him). He was probably based on some sort of mythical demon worshipped by his nomadic group.

Architect on March 20, 2007 at 8:58 am

Dear Scuzlimandproud,
My,my,my…such hateful language from a worshipper of Satan,oops- I mean allah,I guess that’s what the the local hatemonger imam in your mosque brainwashes your feeble brain with.Did the dirty little man with the scruffy beard also tell you that you are a pagan???After all you MORON,you do idolize that goddamn “MoonRock” in the Ka’Abba don’t you dumbass? You know the one I’m talking about right?The one in Mecca you FOOL.
The one that Satan “lives in”,oops-I mean allah “lives-in”.Yeah,that’s the one,the one that used to be pure white,but turned pure black after it was touched by menstrating women.Thanks for exposing to all here how STUPID,VILE and DISGUSTING you & the ummah are.Now crawl back under the rock from whence you slithered out from.

billybob on March 20, 2007 at 9:19 am

Egyptoid’s comment triggered a thought by this quote:
” And if he is so unislamic now,
then why did he pick such a strange church to join ?”
And why does he choose the name Obama now – when as a student he used the name “Barry” while registered as a muslim in Indonesian schools.
Here is a quote from one of Obama’s Indonesian instructors:
“At that time, Barry was also praying in a Catholic way, but Barry was Muslim,” Dharmawan said in Obama’s old classroom, where she still teaches 39 years later. “He was registered as a Muslim because his father, Lolo Soetoro, was Muslim.
Two of his teachers, former Vice Principal Tine Hahiyari and third-grade teacher Effendi, said they remember clearly that at this school, too, he was registered as a Muslim, which determined what class he attended during weekly religion lessons.
“Muslim students were taught by a Muslim teacher, and Christian students were taught by a Christian teacher,” said Effendi, who, like many Indonesians, uses only one name.
His former Roman Catholic and Muslim teachers, along with two people who were identified by Obama’s grade-school teacher as childhood friends, say Obama was registered by his family as a Muslim at both of the schools he attended.
I find it curious that while registered as a muslim, he is addressed with the gentile name “Barry”. As a potential presidential candidate he and his camp strongly deny his islamic heritage and profess his devotion to Christianity yet choosing an islamic identity with “Barack Hussein Obama”

justamomof4 on March 20, 2007 at 9:23 am

Nothing to worry about. Nobody with a middle name “Hussein” will win a presidential election in the US this century. BHO’s campaign offers a great opportunity to subject Islam to well warranted scrutiny.
For instance, few people know that Muhammad’s first significant act as a cult leader/pirate was to exterminate the Jews of Yathrib (Medina). Thus Mohammad was conducting Hollocasts long before Officer Bogdan Chmielnicki in 1648/49 and Corporal Adolph Hitler 1939/45. Hitler was actually inspired by Muhammad’s example of personalized terror and brutality.

Mordecai on March 20, 2007 at 10:05 am

First of all, if he were out to deceive people, about his religious beliefs, I doubt he would have kept his real name of Barack Hussein Obama, especially in today’s post 911 era.
Second, he was a child when his alledged Muslim education occurred. Now he is a grown-ass man and can make his own choices.
Third, by accepting Christ as his personal saviour, he has in fact denied his Muslim “heritage”. He does not have to make a public show out of denying it for me or anyone else.
Fourth, by saying Once a Muslim, always a Muslim is not scriptural and is against the teaching of the Bible, especially Romans 10:9. I have met several former Muslims who have converted to Christianity. ALL men and women can attain salvation offered by Christ if they so choose. To say they cannot is to deny the power of GOD. And we are not in a position to judge another person’s salvation, so this “once a Muslim, always a Muslim” discussion is fruitless. No true Christian with a knowledge of scripture would ever say or agree to such a thing.
Fifth, as a Black man, there are many things I find admirable about Mr. Obama and I have no problem using him as an example to my kids on the benefits of education and on how grown folks should comport themselves in public….at least he acts like he’s had some home training. However, as someone who would be considered a conservative because of my religious beliefs, there are other concerns I have about Mr. Obama…his alleged Muslim ties are the least of them.

JibberJabber on March 20, 2007 at 10:22 am

Hey, JibberJabber
You clearly do not understand the depth of Islamic indoctrination.
Many of Islam’s conquests were achieved through a combination of infiltration, deception & terror by a small group of warriors. Whole civilizations were destroyed because their leaders did not understand the methods of conquest invented by the cult’s Prophet.
Even if Hussein has discarded his childhood indoctrination he will never be able to see Islam for what it is – a rival civilization hell bent on world domination.
Considering the stakes, a choice between a prosperous free civilization and a permanent dark ages (think Morloks feeding on us the Eloys) – can we really take the risk?

Mordecai on March 20, 2007 at 10:44 am

muzlumandstoooopid is your typical islamic jihadist (moderate muzlum). The guy has been so brainwashed from infancy by this Satanic cult, that he can’t even put together a coherent thought – much less a coherent sentence.
Just read the anger in his posts. But remember this: he’s not the exception – he’s the rule. ALL knuckle-dragging muzlums possess this vehement hatred for anything that is not islamic. Their “religion” is no peaceful religion – there isn’t anything peaceful about it. Their religion is all about violence, subjugation, submission, and murder.
muzlumandstooooopid is lost. True, he will spend the rest of eternity with allah and mohammad, but what he fails to understand is that his paradise is in Hell, where he will be used as a prophylactic by Satan (allah) and his chief Lieutenant, mohammad.
Make sure the volume is turned on when clicking on the above link.

Thee_Bruno on March 20, 2007 at 11:24 am

Being a black person myself I can tell you that I would not vote for Obama. Black people in this country seem to crowd around Obama just because of the thought of having a “black” president.
We need a president who is “competent”,who is “experienced”,and a president who can get the job done. I will never vote for a candidate just because I’m black and they happen to be black. We need to elect candidates based on their track record and qualifications not because we want a “black” or “woman” president. We don’t need anymore “token” candidates elected to office. We need people who are going to get the job done and ensure future prosperity for America. To the contrary of what “MuslimandProud” said about Islam not being Racist, I beg to differ. Abeed means “black slave” and people need to the truth about slavery. Long before “White Europeans” traveled to Africa, there was slavery in Africa. Slavery in Africa began in East Africa and guess who the slave traders were??? Take a wild guess! If you guessed “Arab Muslims” you are correct.But you this is the part of history “we” as people of African descent are never taught. If you think I’m not telling the truth look up “Arab slave trade” or go here
With that said Africans are only Muslims because they were originally enslaved by Arabs “700 years”
before Europeans even knew Africa existed. I was shocked myself when I learned about this. And I also have to ask…is there no coincidence that the “Arab Slave Trade” began in the 9th century exactly when Islam/Ottoman Empire’s bloody inquisition? Mind you they didn’t just enslave “Africans”,they enslaved “Europeans” and “Jews” too. The Arab Slave Trade lasted “1000 years+” a millennium (from the 9th century to 19th century).
The irony of all this is that this makes people like “Malcolm X”, “Louis Farrakhan” “Nation of ISlam” and “The Black Panthers”look like bafoons because they don’t know history. When black people think about slavery the first thing that comes to mind is “White Europeans” and this because we have been mis-educated by a liberal society [go figure). I wonder why in history they never teach “full” history behind slavery or anything else for the matter. I’m also tired of people who are not “American” born talking about how racist America is. Show me a country on Earth where there is no “racism”.Racism exist in every country on this planet.India is a prime example. We can never get rid of “racism” because there will always be a minority and majority.Its just math,human nature and logic.

the_don on March 20, 2007 at 2:31 pm

Thanks, Thee_Bruno for your great comments and the link to the cartoon gallery. Great stuff! Excellent comments about Islam and slavery, the_don. You hit the nail on the head!

FreethinkerNY on March 20, 2007 at 3:09 pm

You guys KNOW Obama’s not a Muslim, you know Schlussel lied about the supposed Madrassa he was educated at (when he was six years old for Christ’s sake) you know his Dad was an atheist and yet you continue to pour scorn on a man who has done you no harm, and never could.
Why would that be?
Mmmmmm, let me see if I can’t work it out.
What could it be about Obama that you guys hate?
Is it the fact that he studied at Harvard?
Is it because he’s clearly smarter than you?
Or is it perhaps because he’s black?
Why don’t you people at least develop the intelectual honesty to put on your white hoods and go burn crosses on his front lawn.
That’s the real issue here, you know that.
Be honest for once, all of you.

The Purple Cow on March 20, 2007 at 3:40 pm

Purple cow responds exactly like the east coast elite I lived among for fifteen years. They thought they knew everything and that the people in the rest of the U.S. were ignorant and/or prejudiced. I saw their children become unstable and neurotic, even psychotic, by being raised with philosopher charlatan ideas learned at their revered ivy league institutions. I never saw a more miserable lot than these people who held a religious belief that they knew the truth.

the poetess on March 20, 2007 at 4:11 pm

The Purple Cow,
Did you not read anything I said???
Why do people always feel the need to play the race card when there is no rational reason??? If you disagree with Debbie Schlussel’s perspective why do you continue to read what she has to say?
Why do you come to this site? Your irrational. I’m black and I would never vote Obama because he’s not qualified for the job. Race is not even the issue here. Obama says a lot without saying anything at all just like Hilary Clinton and most of the other candidates running on both sides.

the_don on March 20, 2007 at 4:50 pm

“Did you not read anything I said???”
No thanks, life’s too short.
You know Obama isn’t Muslim, even if he was, so what?
We all know the real reason you hate him, I’m just asking for honesty.

The Purple Cow on March 20, 2007 at 5:22 pm

“If you disagree with Debbie Schlussel’s perspective why do you continue to read what she has to say?”
Because I live in a Democracy.

The Purple Cow on March 20, 2007 at 5:23 pm

YW, FreethinkerNY. Thanks for the kind comments.
Your posts are also welcome. It’s nice to see the sane refute the insane.

Thee_Bruno on March 20, 2007 at 5:30 pm

The Purp cow is not living in the USA? She said:
“Because I live in a Democracy”
Of course, the USA is a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy. From wikipedia:
Constitutional republic
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A constitutional republic is a state where the head of state and other officials are elected as representatives of the people and must govern according to existing constitutional law that limits the government’s power over citizens.
In a constitutional republic, executive, legislative, and judicial powers are separated into distinct branches and the will of the majority of the population is tempered by protections for minority rights so that no individual or group has absolute power. The fact that a constitution exists that limits the government’s power, makes the state constitutional. That the head(s) of state and other officials are chosen by election, rather than inheriting their positions, and that their decisions are subject to judicial review makes a state republican.
Unlike a pure democracy, in a constitutional republic, citizens are not governed by the majority of the people but by the rule of law.
Constitutional Republics are a deliberate attempt to diminish the threat of mobocracy thereby protecting minority groups from the tyranny of the majority by placing checks on the power of the majority of the population.
The power of the majority of the people is checked by limiting that power to electing representatives who govern within limits of overarching constitutional law rather than the popular vote having legislative power itself. John Adams defined a constitutional republic as “a government of laws, and not of men.”
Also, the power of government officials is checked by allowing no single individual to hold executive, legislative and judicial powers. Instead these powers are separated into distinct branches that serve as a check and balance on each other. A constitutional republic is designed so that “no person or group [can] rise to absolute power.”
The notion of constitutional republic originates with Aristotle’s Politics and his notion of the polity. He Contrasts the polity or republican government with democracy and oligarchy in book 3, chapter 6 of the Politics.

“The Purp cow is not living in the USA?”
Correct Dr. Dale, I am not living in the USA.
It may amaze you to know that the USA is not the only country in the world with access to the internet.

Canadien igloo dwelling Eskimo? Canada, the 51st state? Canada a Democracy? I like Ms Purp Cow. I have worked with and met Canadiens and they seem just like Americans. 😉
Canada is a constitutional monarchy with Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada as head of state,and a parliamentary democracy with a federal system of parliamentary government and strong democratic traditions
