Why does it matter if he is a Muslim or was a Muslim?

Religion is a choice. You have to be truly convinced that what ever you believe in is the truth, and what people shouldn't matter. I just don't understand why people love to judge each other. Leave the man alone! If he is Muslim so be it if he isn't so what.

Isn't the real question is he a good person? Or is he fit to be president? All we think about is race, religion, sexual orientation…. I'm sick of ...it. We are all PEOPLE so act like it
