  • It depends -

    If you follow muslim law, then yes. You are whatever your father was and you have no say in the matter and can never change it. Obama's grandfather and father were muslim though his father became atheist later in life so Obama is muslim under muslim law.

    Obama did attend a muslim school for a few years as a child. Did he have a choice? I doubt it. Would he have chosen to go if given a choice? Who knows.

    Obama's mother is Christian. If we had a law that you are whatever religion your mother was and you can never change it then he is Christian too.

    He has attended a Christian church for decades - though the pastor was a wack job. Was he just going through the motions? Again, who knows.

    Was he ever muslim? Most say no. Is he now a muslim? Most say no. Look at the evidence and make up your own mind.

  • No... He is not a muslim.. go to Wikipedia.com and do some research on his parents. His father and step-father were muslims. Not him. He was raised by his grandparents who had Christian beliefs. He now goes to a Christian church and has stated he is a Christian. And I'm a McCain supporter but decisions need to be based on facts.
