I disagree

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Eddie (United States), Jul 24, 2008 at 17:02

... I spent six years of my life attending church three times a week as part of a professional boys' choir. I even took communion sometimes. I also visited Southeast Asia with my parents as a child. I entered Buddhist temples, lit incense, rubbed gold leaf on Buddha statues.

By your standards, if I understand them, I was once a "practicing" Christian and a "practicing" Buddhist. I was not and I am not.
