Can you be born a particular religion?

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Dean (United States), Jun 13, 2008 at 17:16

It is an interesting concept that one can be born a particular religion. If your parents are Republicans, are you born a Republican? Obviously it is absurd. That these pages are seriously debating the idea and implications around Obama's parent's religion demonstrates how completely hoodwinked they are by religious nonsense.
