A persons Religion is what he says it is.

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Frankie Rader (United States), Jul 20, 2008 at 15:16

In this Country, a person is not identified by his Father's Religion. Many people born of parents Catholics, Jewish, Protestant , do not necessairly stick with the religion they were born into.

A person's Religion is what he says it is in this Country. How can you tell the public otherwise.?

In the U.S.A, Conservatives, Chrisrtian Coalition etc say that you should be a Christian to become President. If that is the case then the Jews in this Country can't be President..

This Country is suppsed to have freedom of Religion.

The Evangelicals think they are the only ones going to Heaven. I think they may be in for a surpise when they get to the Pearly Gates. We don't need another President who thinks God tells him to go to war.
