1. According to the Holy Bible, when you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal savior, and are baptized, you are a Christian. Barack Obama did and he is a Christian. I don't care what Moslem law says or what you believe. Are you a Moslem? 2. He attended a Catholic school in Indonesia even though his mother took him to the "largest moslem nation in the world". 3. He spent 16 years of his childhood being raised by his white Christian grandparents. 4. He is married to a Harvard educated Christian wife who was "really proud" of her country for the first time in her adult life. Anyone who doesn't understand this must be white. You can love your country even though you are not always proud of her actions. LIke you love your child even though you are not proud of misbehavior. Michelle Obama's Dad and Mom were subject to Jim Crow and segregation. I guess you must be proud of that. But I understand why she would only be proud of her country at that time, versus being "really proud" when it appeared that we had finally put our racist past behind us. 5. Why can't you say anything positive about John McCain? Is it because there is nothing positive to say? 6. Barack had several years of experience in the Illinois senate before coming to the US Senate. I guess that means that he's not an insider of Washington. 7. Who cares what religion either of them had? Read the constitution why don't you. Separation of church and state. I'll get a clue after you do.
