This has nothing to do with atheism, but I have a small question that came to mind after seeing it on CNN.
What are birthers going on about and why?
I understand that it is a rule that only naturalized citizens can become president and so Schwarztneger couldn't run without a change to our constitution.
However as I understand it, a child born to American parents in a foreign country is a citizen of both countries. So even if he were born in Kenya (which doesn't seem at all likely) then wouldn't be still a naturalized citizen.
I just wikied birthers, where I read that an alternative theory of theirs is that he lost his citizenship when his family moved to Indonesia. I am not as sure how the rules on that work, but I suspect our citizenship rules on that would also be just as inclusive where he being but a minor would not have lost his American citizenship in that case either.
Idk. And I figured as plenty of people here are Obama supporters yall would appreciate the opportunity to bash birthers.
