Of course his religion matters.

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Why do we care about someones religion?

Submitted by Donald Page (United States), Sep 8, 2008 at 17:41

If Mr. Obama was born to a Muslim father, then all of the Islamic world considers him a Muslim. Having converted to Christianity makes him an apostate, in their eyes. Apostates are to be killed. What happens when he visits a Muslim country? It only takes one extremist to make an attack.
