As an adult, Obama professes Christianity

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Dan (United States), Sep 14, 2008 at 10:56

When I was a child, I occasionally 'followed' my mother to Christian churches. She wasn't even a Christian then, but she went occasionally because she was invited or chose, for whatever reason, to attend. THAT DID NOT MAKE ME A CHRISTIAN any more than having 'a Muslim background' makes him a Muslim, or having a Christian background with his grandparents made him a Christian.

A Christian is one who accepts Jesus Christ as one's personal savior. The question is whether Obama has done so. If he says he has, who are we to say he is a Muslim?

I for one would rather have a Christian with a Muslim 'background' in the oval office than a Christian with Texas background who deceives the American people in order to prosecute an unjust war!

McCain is just more of the same! Palin is irrelevant as Biden unless McCain should die in office, which is a distinct possibility given his FATHER'S history.
