Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by DANIEL REDMOND (United States), Mar 10, 2008 at 20:19

Although I doubt that Barak Obama is a Muslim and I find it unfair to villify someone because others attempted to brainwash him with religion as a child, I do have this recurring nightmare vision that the day after he's inaugurated as the 44th President of the United States Barak Obama announces that he's "converted to Islam." Wow, would we be screwed or what? And there's not a damned thing we could do about it because there is nothing in the Constitution that says a Muslim can't be president.

Truth be told, I'm not that crazy about having Christians in that office either---hello George W. Bush!---and I think all religion is pretty weird, but in the pantheon of looney belief systems the followers of Islam have given their hearts and their very souls to the most self-destructive cult ever to march on Europe.
