Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Moderate Muslim (United States), Jan 21, 2008 at 18:37

Who the heck cares if Obama was a Muslim? It does not matter. Get the heck over it. He went to a school when he was in 4th grade, where he learned about Islam for two hours a week. Is that the best ... you have. This is completely pathetic. Obama's religion does not matter. I am a Muslim. I am appalled that this is such a big deal. The man is not going to blow up the Oval Office when he gets into office. I support Obama. I supported him before I knew that his father was a Muslim turned atheist deadbeat. Get over the fact that he went to school in a Muslim country. Muslims would not call Obama a Muslim, because his father was qualifiably an atheist and abandoned the family, Obama was never taught Islam. Not that it matters. What the heck is wrong with you people?
