World needs people like OBAMA

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Agnostic (Turkey), Jan 27, 2009 at 15:20

Does it matter if Obama was born Moslem? I was born Moslem too cause my father was a Moslem but an extreme atheist. Does it matter if he was born Christian? I was raised by my religious orthdox Christian grandmother who grew up in a christian orphanage. I am neither Moslem nor Christian....Because I have seen no light in any of them and I have already learned our earthly labels such as religion, race and ethnicity do not make us human. It is our heart, our understanding and our tolerance that makes us human.

In my eyes someone who is discussing whether Obama was born Moslem or not and whether he was a bad choice for presidency just for this very reason should stay still and look after his/herself and check where their hearts are. I am not an American but I believe in him. He is someone coming from both worlds (Christian versus Moslem; whites versus blacks; Africa versus America) so he will be like a bridge. He is the best choice for a multiracial and multireligious country like US. World needs people like Obama, not fanatical Moslems, jews and christians who dont produce anything but hate upon hate.
