Obama oxymoron: A Muslim cannot become a Christian.

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by DrRJP (United States), Apr 7, 2008 at 17:24

Hey, I did not write the rules. Islam did. Once a Muslim, always a Muslim. Obama can call himself anything he wants, but, in the eyes of the Muslim world, conversion out of Islam warrants a death sentence. ON THE OTHER HAND, THERE IS ALWAYS TAQIYYA. Meaning, a Muslim can tell the world that he is not a Muslim, as long as he still thinks of himself as a Muslim. They do it all the time.
