Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Danish (Pakistan), Dec 27, 2007 at 07:16

I just can't believe how preoccupied people become with someone's past.

Whether Obama is, was, or will be a muslim is irrelevant. What he wants to do for America, THAT is relevant. As long as he protects and promotes the basic values on which the American society is based, it does not matter what religion he belongs/belonged to. If there is one thing that American society must be proud of, it is the multicultural, multireligious makeup, everyone living together for a common goal -- a safe, fulfilling, and satisfying life.

May the best candidate win in the US Presidential Elections, 2008.
