Wikipedia rejects this article

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by PT (United States), Mar 25, 2009 at 10:42

Wikipedia is refusing to accept this information as correction for their Barack Obama article

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_Obama that states: "He describes his father as "raised a Muslim," but a "confirmed atheist" by the time his parents met, and his stepfather as "a man who saw religion as not particularly useful."" And to add the fact that "Obama was an irregularly practicing Muslim who rarely or occasionally prayed with his step-father in a mosque"

As the article is locked you have to convince the moderators in the discussion section to add or remove information. They refused and ended the discussion by locking that section too. You can see that discussion at:
