Good on two counts -- bad for his election prospects, and may further expose evil of Islam

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Charles Martel (United States), Dec 24, 2007 at 15:40

I agree with Dr. Pipes that the issue is not in any sense that Obama ever was a "real" Moslem, but that his legal status as a Moslem as a child will create huge difficulties for him with Moslems.

He is an apostate in a semi-real sense (rejected a Moslem childhood) and certainly in the legal Moslem sense.

He would be a dreadful president and his Moslem connection should certainly hurt him with wavering moderate voters.
