Christian by Choice

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood

Submitted by freddymartin (United States), Jul 2, 2008 at 03:24

An elementary school student, especially a first grader is enrolled by his parents, his religion cannot be chosen yet, even in a Catholic school. Obama must mean that he has been a Christian by his choice. When I went through Catholic Holy Communion that was done as a Second Grader, not exactly my choice, though beautiful the ceremony is.

Indonesia has been a relatively a moderate Muslim country, due to the ex-Dutch colonization, and the official religions, though tragically this government appeases the fanatics. Obama most importantly has a clear vision of separation of church and state, but he has accepted the altruist, give all to your neighbor idea of both Christianity and Mohammadism.
