Barack Obama, Muslim? You tell me.

Barack Obama was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia. There is no doubt about this.

So it's only fair to ask, "is he a Muslim now?"

Of course, Mr Obama has ambitions to be the president of the United States. It wouldn't be wise for him to claim adherence to Islam would it?

Those of us who have studied Islam know that if you are raised a Muslim, one of the first things you are taught is that you cannot leave Islam. Leaving Islam is punishable by death.
Of course this doesn't stop people from leaving Islam. The point is that those who have the courage to leave Islam also have the courage to declare their beliefs and say why they have left Islam. Usually it is to do with the revelation that Islam isn't the religion it is made out to be. It is violent, suppressive of individuals, full of hate and intolerance.

So, if Mr Obama is true to his word, and is genuine in his claim that he is no longer a Muslim, then shouldn't he declare the reason for his apostasy?

The courage to comment but no courage to reveal your name. Coward.

If you still think Obama's a Muslim, you're not alone. There are several million other morons out there who think like you do.

Is he a muslim is impossible to answer. Has he been? In terms of practice, yes. Deep in his heart, again we can never know. Seeing as how he is running for President, it would be good for him to be honest about his religious past and beliefs so we can fully understand his world view. I suspect he has much lingering admiration for Islam.

TO THE POINT, why do you guess anonymous so upset at the notion of Obama's having been a muslim that he goes in to full rant and ad hominem mode?

We know that evidence and calm debate are not his bag. But we must wonder,is he an avid fan of Barak who would hate to have such aspersions cast upon his hero? Is he a Muslim who denounces all "false Muslims" like Obama?

If you are there and can do other than slander, what makes you so angry?
