1. Why do people believe Obama is a Muslim?
2. I know he had a Muslim father, does that automatically make him Muslim?
3. It's my understanding from a former Muslim that in order to be a Muslim officially, you have to recite what is called the shahada (sp?), which is a profession of faith.
4. If he's Muslim, why attend a Christian church (United Church of Christ) for over 20 years?
For the record: Right now, I don't believe Obama is a Muslim because I have no concrete proof.

As the son of the Muslim father, Senator Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law as it is universally understood. It makes no difference that, as Senator Obama has written, his father said he renounced his religion. Likewise, under Muslim law based on the Koran his mother’s Christian background is irrelevant."
Since we dont live under "Muslim Law" what does that matter? He's a Christian

People believe it because its easier to hate him that way. It doesn't matter to me one way or the other...I have no reason to think he is a "secret muslim" so i don't.
