allegiance to Africa requires loss of US citizenship?

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Obama's Religion is Allegiance to Africa

Submitted by Clyde B. (United States), Mar 9, 2008 at 17:02

I happened to be looking at an old US passport (1980), and it states that "...you may lose your United States nationality...by taking an oath or making a declaration of allegiance to a foreign state..."

Obama had to make such a declaration of allegiance to become a member of his church, since he declared his allegiance to Africa, therefore he isn't a legal a U.S. citizen and can't hold any office.
