Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Paul (United States), Oct 27, 2008 at 20:24

First, Obama is a Christian. But what in this land of freedom of religion is wrong with a man or woman of Mulsim faith being President? Americans ought to live by their ideals or else all that stars and stripes stuff in 7th grade civics turns out to be a lie. Whether an American is for Obama or not is of little consequence if one cannot imagine a person's religion not being a major factor in his or her qualification as President. I know Muslims who are devout and honest and live lives of integrity, and others that have their foibles. I know Christians who are as hypocritical as the wind and others that are kind. I know Jews that are generous, and Jews who are stingy. Better America have a President that upholds all civil freedoms including those to practice faith according to conscience.
