Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

By the reasoning presented in this article, ... Nietzsche was a Christian! Hahahahhaa.... He was after all devoutly Christian in his youth, his father, Carl Ludwig Nietzsche was a Lutheran Pastor, and he studied theology at the University of Bonn. He was even buried in a Church Cemetery. Does that mean that Nietzsche's thought is really a "Manchurian Philosophy", for Christianity, a way to seem to be Christian through declaring himself to be an anti-Christ? After-all, the church even listed him as "anti-Christ" in the cemetery records... So, I'd love to hear from those here, what they think of that, given the hype about Obama's faith... Is faith in the eye of the beholder, or the "heart" of a (dis)believer? Are you willing to seriously consider Nietzsche was a Christian?
