Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: Religion of a person should not matter

Submitted by Josh (United States), Apr 20, 2008 at 07:44

I really don't care that Obama might have practiced Islam as a child. What concerns me, is that a huge portion of the Muslim world, especially here in Afghanistan are uneducated. All they will see, If he wins the Presidency, is the a man with a Muslim name is the President of the United States and they will see that as a religious victory.
