Obama is a Muslim? Confirmed Barack Obama practiced Islam

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Obama is a Muslim?

Submitted by Anne (United States), Aug 4, 2008 at 09:56

Barack Obama's father and step-father were Muslims. That makes him a muslim, whether he practices the reliligion or not. Interviews with dozens of former classmates, teachers, neighbors, and friends show that Obama was not a regular practicing muslim, when he was in Indonesia, implying he was an irregularly practicing muslim.

All of these facts matter, for if Obama once was a Muslim, he is now what Islamic law calls a murtadd (apostate), an ex-muslim converted to another religion who must be executed. Were he elected President of the United States, this status, clearly, would have large potential implications for his relationship with the muslim world. I am placing my vote for President, for a man who will follow the Constitution of the United states, and swear to preserve, protect, and defend her, and will be sworn in on the Holy Bible, Not the Koran, as two congressman Muslims have done. Obama's birth certificate will always be an issue, because many believe it has been forged, and his nationality is listed as Muslim. There are too many pictures, and substantiated information about his heritage, and radical associations, if he doesn't come clean, this information is going to cause him big problems.
