Does it matter even if Obama is a Muslim?

Friends we consider that the USA is the greatest democracy. Does it matter even if Mr.Obama is/was a Muslim ? Anyway he is a practising Christian at the moment. I thought US constitution allows anyone from any faith to become it's commander in chief. There are very few Muslims in the USA currently.

So , why should a candidate's faith matter in this debate?

I am looking to all of you friends for your answer.
