Has it come to this??

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Feed UP American (United States), Feb 27, 2008 at 12:21

As the freedom hungry society we are ,is it fair that we judge a man on the religion of his STEPFather?? I know that when I was a child I had no choice in how I praticed religion because as a kid you have no choice; later as an adult I CHOSE how I wanted to 'praise' or 'pratice' religion. It seems to me that since we can't find anything bad to say about this man we have to come up with something as meaningless as what his religion was in grade school!!!!!!!!!!!!! In my opinion regardless of how a person chooses to pray to his version of religion, he should be judged by the content of his character. America was built on religious freedom; not today I don't like them because I don't agree with his religion solely based on how others of the same religion have taken it to an extreme.
