Why do we care about someones religion?

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Rod (United States), Sep 5, 2008 at 09:55

Instead of focusing on someones religion, why don't you look at a person's life and how they conduct themselves. That's a more powerful gauge of what's to come. Of course, we have to be true to ourselves and not expect perfection since God is the only one who is perfect.

It's really sad to hear and see people saying that Obama is a muslim, when he is a practicing Christian and in some respects more devout than the population at large.

Are we letting our prejudice take the best of ourselves. I know it's scary sailing into the unknown but we will not know unless we give people a chance. After 8 years of a republican administration that has left this country in its worst shape ever, Why would we even contemplate continuing the same path?

Think about it, pray about it, and don't let race be the deciding factor. You have to do what's best for the US in the long haul.
