For them, that he was born to a line of Muslim males makes him born a Muslim.

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Feroz-e-Lughat (Pakistan), Feb 11, 2008 at 12:42

This statement, "For them, that he was born to a line of Muslim males makes him born a Muslim. ", is completely incorrect. Islamic law makes it clear, and so is the practice of Muslims in general, that being born to a line of Muslim males does not automatically qualify one to be a Muslim. Please quote a reference from any Islamic law text to back up your claim or else stop spreading lies.

Obama is not and was not a Muslim...
