Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Anonymous (United Arab Emirates), Apr 11, 2010 at 13:16

I read the Qur'an when I was 13 out of curiosity (I am born muslim). Islamic law also does not state that any muslim that has converted to another religion must be harmed in any way...

It says to treat everyone with respect and that the Christians, Jews and the Sabians are also God's people and that IF THERE IS A NON-MUSLIM, DO NOT BOTHER HIM/HER.

... Anyway, so what if Barack Obama was once a muslim?
