Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: The real problem is where was he born? In Hawaii or Kenya?

The sheer fact you all are even posing this question demonstrates profound Islamophobia in the U.S. Even if he were Muslim...why is that such a horrible thing? Look at the history of the U.S., a "Christian country " and look at how you all have treated people placing Japanese immigrants into concentration camps, lynching African Americans, discriminating against Jewish immigrants, this IS terrorism. In the past you singled out certain groups and blatantly terrorized them and then have the nerve to sit in church as if you have done nothing wrong. How dear you all call yourselves Christians with a history like this. Get over self-righteous selves!
