Barack Obama, Muslim ???

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Right.... but

Submitted by Don Kensington (United States), Dec 20, 2013 at 21:00

In the article it is mentioned that as a child he was listed as being a Muslim according to the practice of giving a child the Religious Affiliation of his father. I was brought up as a kid as Lutheran, because that was the Religion my father was brought up in. Perhaps, as a KID, Barack Obama did occasionally attend teaching of Islam or whatever. Does NOT mean he is a practicing Muslim today by any means. How many folks were brought up Catholic and "converted" to say Methodist or Episcopalian for instance?? Same same..... The thoughts on his converting from Islam places him on a veritable hit list by "Muslim Law" bears no more relevance than saying that Christians who do not observe the Old Jewish laws are subject to stoning, or other punishment. I have a strong tendency to believe that if the Muslims truly wanted to kill ALL those former Muslims that converted to whatever else, they would have their hands full to say the least. It IS a non-issue.

Submitting....
