Ties with religion

Reader comment on item: Obama's Connection to Sirhan Sirhan

His father was of muslim origin, but his father left him when he was still a child, and we was raised by a true american family with no ties to Islam.

When he went to Indonesia, most of the time he went to a catholic school.

You should not call that to be a muslim. A true muslim must believe in the five pillars of Islam, like praying five times a day, fasting and going to Mecca. you can't tell a guy that goes to a protestant church to be a muslim.

It seems that he does not feel muslim, since he frequents a christian church for so many years!!!

Being friend of a muslim does not mean you are one. You should also point the so many times he met with jews the same way he has been met with buddhist, animist etc
