People should vote for the person and not for his religion.

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: Obama the Muslim

Submitted by adnan (United States), Mar 20, 2008 at 21:29

Are we talking about the U.S.A. a democratic country or about a vatican like state?

People speak about islam as it is an illegal religion. Speaking of the constitution, does our constitution guaranties the freedom of religion. Where did you people find the being a muslim to be a crime? Do you not understand that you are hurting the feelings of at least 8 milion muslims living in the U.S.A.? What can I tell my sons when they ask me about this nonsense? I know that state and church are separated by constitution in our country, so what does this religious discussion have to do with the election. I am a muslim and U.S. citizen. I am proud to be an american muslim. I can practice my religion and honor the country's law at the same time. This is the greatnes of this blessed country the freedom and not the fanaticism.
