Interesting docs-Odinga narrowly lost

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood
in response to reader comment: Lying about being a Christian is an Obama family tradition

Great documents. Well researched article on Obama.

I've always had misgivings about Obama. All charisma aside, I've had lingering doubts.

Regarding his cousin, the candidate, he signed the following: to end all Gospel radios shows, to impose a ban on women dressing immorally, and implementing the Islamic Shari'iah----in a 60% Christian country.

Next. If the grandmother is Muslim, was she born Muslim or converted? The grandfather was a Catholic who converted to Islam, then became Athiest. That's one apostasy there.

I've always questioned why Obama's mother married not one, but two Muslims, while also being an athiest or agnostic. She then enrolls her son as a Muslim in school. Very odd. Since when are Muslims so 'free' to change their religions without some (at the least) negative attention?

The grandmother said anyone is free to practice whichever religion they like, yet I have to wonder how she felt about cousin Odinga's Islamic Shari'iah promises upon being elected?

Here is a recent article on election-spurred strife in Kenya, where Raila Odinga was narrowly defeated.
