Pledge of Allegiance and the Koran

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Graydog (United States), Mar 19, 2008 at 10:57

Should a man that will not pledge allegiance the customary way, (by placing the right hand over the heart), and may take an oath of office with a hand on a Koran, really be the leader of the largest most powerful nation in the world?

Why can he not wear a pin of the U.S. flag on his lapel, nor salute the flag. Will he surrender our country to the Muslims leaders of our enemies? I for one find this very distastful and disrespectful to our country and it's people. Illinois can keep their senator. We certainly do not need him in the white house.
