Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Is/was Obama a muslem?

Submitted by Merlin (United States), Sep 20, 2008 at 14:58

The Iranian leader recently told a crowd (15k or more) of his countrymen that Obama was still one of them and a religious leader there stated that because Obama moved to Christianity before he was eighteen he had not broken Muslim Law. And because he chose a radical Christian church he is still of the same mind.

It is Obama's desire that colored religion is just that way, that it is normal, but leaders of the colored churches across the country have said that the Rev. Wright's type of radical churches are in the minority.
Radical Muslim 's are a pain in the general population of followers of that religion. Just as the radical far right of the Christian religion is a thorn in the sides of most church goers.

Religion in the extreme is the raw side of of every written religion.
Because we are humans first and religious second, we all have different beliefs of what religion means to us. The individuals that make up radical portions of any religion would be radical even if they were not religious. A demented person is still demented no mater what he is motivated by.
