So What

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by John (United States), Feb 11, 2008 at 10:17

So what if he was or is a Muslim? I don't believe this is or ever was the case but the real problem here is the misguided people who equate Muslim with radical. Not all Muslims are radical and many that are have become that way out of fear. The radical view of the majority of Americans that the whole world must be Christian is probably as responsible as radical Muslims for the violence in this world.
