Obama -Christianity

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes
in response to reader comment: Obama and Islam

Submitted by Cora (Canada), Jan 23, 2009 at 19:31

So we say Obama was not baptized as a Christian. Lots of people aren't but still profess to be a Christian.

Do we know if he was baptized as a Muslim? Since his mother was Christian and his parents didn't stay together very long he probably wasn't babtized as Muslim. My son sat in on First communion classes when he attended Catholic school but that didn't make him Catholic.

It's ludacris to say he's Muslim just because he went to temple.

Also on the naming of kids, I never realized there was such a thing as Christian names as opposed to other types of names.

Again there are thousands of Catholics with the names Mary and Joseph but there are also Christians with those names as well.

What's in a name????????????????

Such rediculousness.
