I thought this was a free country, founded on religious freedom. Many of our forefathers came to escape persecution based on religious beliefs. Do we really care if Barack obama prayed in a mosque in 1st grade? Don't we have more important issues to focus on? Are we really (still) a nation steeped in bigotry and racism? should we don our KKK hats and viciously pounce on him?

Aren't we a nation of intelligent people capable of focusing on the issues? Equal rights, Equal opportunities, Health care for all? It seems over the last 300 years that Europe has progressed, and we have regressed. If you don't like where he stands on the issues great, lets talk. If you are worried about whose god he prayed to in first grade, you are on the wrong track.
