a couple of thoughts on Patricia's comment

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Obama"s Muslm background

Submitted by Rebecca Wilkin (United States), Sep 9, 2012 at 12:31

Two things in Patricia's comments are disconcerting. Number 1: That if Obama is a Muslim it is no big thing. I consider that to be a dangerous way of thinking, simply because there is an element of radicalism connected to some who practice this religion today. Number 2: That Romney is a tax cheat is unproven innuendo put forward by certain prominent members of the democratic leadership. Accusation is not, in and of it self, proof, it is probably libel and slander.
