Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

In view of the 9/11 attacks that were launched by radical Muslims against the US, it is only fair for every US citizen to know whether Barak Hussein Obama, the Democratic candidate, relationship to the Islamic religion.

According to the Islamic Sahria law (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharia), the son of any Muslim man is legally muslim even if his mother is not a muslim.

Because of that law, Mr. Obama is currently considered a Muslim in the eyes of the billions of Muslims world wide according to the online published statements by the media of several Islamic countries.

Some might argue that this is the US and that we do things differently. That is true, but we the US citizens have the right to know every little detail about every single presidential candidate.

So the question is, when did Mr. Obama become a Christian? Was he ever baptized and if so could his campaign publish a copy of his baptismal certificate?
