Reader comment on item: Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes
in response to reader comment: Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer NYT

Submitted by Diana (New Zealand), Nov 5, 2012 at 22:04

I really feel sad that Obama continues to get such constant negativity put on him. I can totally empathise with him and relate to what he says. It is ignorance showing in the story and perpetuated. At 62, I still find the SOUND of the old Latin mass a beautiful sound. I find the SOUND of the muslim prayer a beautiful sound. I find the chant of any kind to be a beautiful sound. I can after 50 years of not hearing it, still remember somewhat, the words of those chants of the catholic church.
If you are open minded and not bigoted, you will easily see that OBama is a good man who is in no way connected to Muslim sharia or islamic law.

What you are reading and repeating is bigoted nonsense. It is also a tragic situation to see a country such as America who once was a country to admire, confuse religion and politics and put them together.

There has to be an end to the childish name calling and abuse your people .. adult people at that, keep throwing at eachother. We outside of the USA are fed up with watching your constant put downs of a man who has done more for you than anyone else in many many years.

To think outside this prejudiced way would be a delight to see and I hope for your sake that Romney does not get in.. he will destroy the world.. not just your own country.

All the best with your election and remember god, church, islam, mormon, jehovah and any other choice of religious figure, has NOTHING to do with a sound that is liked by a man.
