If he were now a Christian after having been a Muslim (ie- after having recited the Shahadah in front of two male witnesses freely and in full understanding) then he would be an apostate. is the sentence for apostacy not death? Obama needs to clearly state what he is now (Trinity United Church of Christ- Africentric, with an honorary award to Louis Farrikhan) and what that means if he gets the Dem nod.
