Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by european (Bosnia And Herzegovina), Dec 26, 2007 at 08:51

So, why is this issue so big over there ?
Why does he need to stress it so much that he was not and is not, a muslim ? What if they asked him i.e. if he was or is a Roman Catholic ? Or is it only important if he was a muslim ?

You guys in America ...
