Obama was a kid

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Genuine what?

Submitted by Glenn (Denmark), Mar 23, 2008 at 17:08

Come on, Obama was in the 3rd and 4th grade. What would people say if he disrespected his father from an early age and ran around town not listening to his parents. When a child is growing up they do not have much of a choice but to follow their parents. Obama was just being a kid doing what his parents told him to.

Children are not allowed to be objective and choose what to think. One doesn't start making that type of decision until they reach puberty at least and probably doesn't have a clue until their mid to late 20's. At least until they start to pay taxes. By that time Obama was a Christian. And if the muslims don't like it I really don't give a crap.

I don't know why everyone is so worried about ticking the islamic community off when they have no worries about ticking off the rest of the world. Be muslim in your own country and I'll leave you alone, that's your business. Push your islamic values on me in my country and you can stand by to be offended.
