Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Ray (United States), Apr 2, 2008 at 17:15

I was born a Christian in a Muslim dominated country, Egypt. I found it very unfair to Sen. Obama to discriminate against him because of his religion.

Ok, His father was a muslim, his step-father was a muslim, lets assume that he had some islamic influence in his upbringing in Indonesia. But he CHOSE Christ, Are we gonna penalize him for choosing Christ? Think about it!!
