If Obama's a Muslim, this Jewish girl is a Christian

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Barbara (United States), Aug 25, 2008 at 18:34

When I was growing up in Chicago, I lived in Rogers Park, a neighborhood of Jews and Irish Catholics for the most part. On occasion I attended Catholic services with my friends. Later we moved to Evanston, which was largely Protestant. On occasion I attended sunday school with friends there. Does this make me a Christian? No, I'm Jewish - always have been and always will. But I appreciate the exposure to Christianity, just as I appreciate the fact that Obama has had exposure to another point of view.
