Obama and religion

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Former Muslims?

You know, I really did laugh as I read your post.

You see, here in America, unlike Malaysia, we get to choose what religion we want to be.

Mr. Obama decided to be a Christian. His family is Christian. All of his Islam is in the past, and while I don't think he's as tough as he says, he will not be favorable to radical Islam. Mr. Obama has said he will meet with rogue leaders in order to preserve peace, but I think he realizes what little chance there is, since orthodox Islam is stubborn and arrogant.

I realize that makes you very angry, but in Islam there is no Redeemer.

In Christianity, Jesus Christ, the One you call Prophet Essa, has saved us from our sins.

Have you yourself ever thought about making a switch? Think about it, David! If so many Muslims leave Islam for this beautiful religion, there must at least one good reason, right?

That is Jesus.
