Stop caring about his religion!

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Matt (United States), Jul 11, 2008 at 11:02

Its ridiculous for people to care so much about whether or not Obama is Muslim. Because of the constant accusations of him being sympathetic toward Islam, he has been forced to take what I see an attitude dangerous for the hundreds of thousands Muslim-Americans (the vast majority of which are Obama supporters) who just want to keep their civil rights.

Because he is constantly trying to disassociate himself from anything having to do with Muslims, one wonders what they're fate will be when he is President. The idea of being Muslim has turned into a terrible evil because of the constant ponderings of the media and the public about whether or not he is Muslim. Please stop making this an issue so that we can figure out where Barack Obama stands on more essential issues.
