Christian grandparents+Catholic school+Christian adult baptism = Christian.

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes
in response to reader comment: This Will Come As A Suprise

Submitted by The More Educated Anne (Virgin Islands, U.s.), Sep 21, 2008 at 07:47

So Tim McVeigh who was born to Christian parents and raised by Christian parents, baptized Christian, was Christian as an adult freely chosen, who you say later turned atheist was not Christian. But Barack Obama who was born to an atheist mother, raised most of his life by Christian grandparents, attended a Christian school in Indonesia, met his father for one month at the age of ten, and chose Christianity as an adult is a Moslem? Because his mother's husband listed his religion as Moslem? So are you going to go by what other people how people are raised or what they proclaim as adults? Be careful Anne, because by either definition, Barack Obama is Christian. But I guess you are more comfortable saying that his religion makes him unfit, because you can not confront your racial feelings. Or because you can't find anything real to say bad about him. Which one, AnneM? One of these days Anne, read the constitution. We are supposed to have separation of Church and state.
