presidents' background can play a role

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: Not just his father, his stepfather and step-family

To Sara and other warners - Obama may be pure gold but there comes a time when background plays an important role.

As somebody on the list pointed out, once a Moslim always a Moslim, it's not an individual choice, Islam doesn't , I repeat doesn't recognize conversion to another religion! Can you imagine a Hussein going to war against another Hussein state, another Moslem kin?

Thank God there is such a thing as impeachment. I hope when he is president - which I fear he'll surely be - sharp eyes will follow all his Moslem related actions. For my taste Americans are too naive once again. I don't say Hillary, but for God's sake, not a Moslem!
