So, Barack Obama was a Muslim?

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Justin (United States), Aug 26, 2008 at 04:52

So, Barack Obama was a Muslim? So he's not a Muslim now? Or was he a Muslim because his father & step-father were? Or was he because he was raised in a marginally Muslim home? That's like saying I was a Christian because I was born into a family that loosely believes in that religion. Oh, sure I went to church now and then. Going to service does not a Christian make, though. OH! I know, because someone WAS, at one point loosely affiliated with a demographic that we in the Western world have demonized and grouped everyone into the extremist fringes means that he ... is a horrible person, politician and shouldn't even be allowed to run for office much less the President! Or, better yet, WHO GIVES... IF HE STILL IS A MUSLIM? Why do all the... GOP get all freaked out when someone/thing that represents change pokes his/her/its head out of the dark? Grrr. ... Have a nice day!
