Reader comment on item: Barack Obama and Islam: An Ongoing Saga
in response to reader comment: no longer Christian and middle names

Submitted by marie (United States), Jan 28, 2009 at 23:03

Wow, have you heard...Obama says he has muslim relatives and grew up around muslims? This never came out before the elections. If anyone raised this issue, they were said to be racist or Obama bashing. I am wondering why he has not picked a Christian church to attend. Does he have more truths that he has yet to reveal?

All of a sudden muslims are elevated next to christians and the jews are demoted. All of a sudden he uses his middle name Hussain, where before it was carefully guarded and even ignored. Wow! he is a good salesman. I am glad I didn't buy into his sale talk. My biggest concern is that everything I believed about Obama is coming to pass and when the honeymoon period wears off, and it will wear off, everyone will ask "what have we done?" And as far as using his middle name during the inauguration, I think it was a message sent to let the muslims of the world know that a muslim is in the White House.
