Well RF,

I'm really sorry to read that statement of yours. It seems that you are taking all this campaign to be personal and criticising the religion instead of expressing your views about the article. Obama Muslim or not a muslim doesnt mean that you should start negating the whole world who believes and accepts Islam as a religion. And before you start giving statments about anything, go and read bible and the scripts from Old testament , and you would know that the basic theme is all the same. And if, as per your statement, Islam is a cult, then Judism and Christianity should also be categorized as cults, but they're not CULTS for sure.

Again, I would suggest you to read multiple views about anything just ANYTHING....before you state something. Not ALL the muslims don't practise their religion and so do the christians, budhists and Jews.

One more thing, for your Info....being the SON of a muslim FATHER doesn't make anybody a muslim. Islam is NOT a religion that can be inherited. We believe that every child is born innocent, the religion comes when he/she accepts and declares certain beliefs.I don't want to get into details but this is the fact. Religion doesn't come with the blood. It's a matter of acceptance.
