His father and his step father were both Muslim

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by stranchan (Ukraine), May 28, 2012 at 08:23

Does the Muslim world regard Barack Obama as a Muslim because his father was a Muslims from Kenya, and his stepfather was a Muslim who put him in to school to study Islam? That is the question, and what are the ramifications of this? Did he then convert to some form of Christianity under the church of Rev Wright? I hope that the American people are given a chance to investigate these questions more thoroughly in the coming elections.
