Does Obama agree, Jesus is/was son of God?

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Observer (United States), Mar 10, 2008 at 10:55

Islam acknowledges Jesus as a prophet, but son of Mary, not son of God.

Obama has been attending a church for the last 20 years -- his step sister in an interview published in New York Times confirmed that he converted 20 years back.

Since more than half of his life he was a Muslim, it would not be strange that he agrees with Islam, that Jesus is not son of God, but was son of Mary.
