Am I supposed to be worried that Barack Obama participated in Muslim prayers in school as a child?

My opinion? I really don't think so. He was a *kid*, for goodness sakes. As a child, I attended a different church than the one I do now. Should that be held against me?

  • Only if you want to be.


    I will focus on the damage he is doing right now. I don't care what he did when he was a kid.

  • that doesn't worry me. What worries me about his childhood is that he idolizes his father who was an extreme, radical anti-colonialist (sp?). Basically, anti-Western, anti-America. he was raised with a lot of hate towards our system. Even when his mom and dad split, his mom found a different husband and he was the same way for awhile. when that man turned around and liked the "Western" ways, his mom told him not to listen to him. I think that should be taken into consideration and that's what worries me.

  • Honestly, if I am going to be concerned about a "churchy" issue and Obama...it is going to be him sitting and listening to Rev Wright's hate filled sermons for more than 20 yrs.

    I don't have time for the churchy stuff though. I am more concerned with his overuse of the company credit card.

  • According to many republicans and fox news hosts you are


    I had no say when I was 6 as to where I lived and where I went to school..I doubt Barack Obama did either

  • Yeah, I'm sure he also pooped in a diaper as a baby. And ate dirt and called a kid a bad name. He was a kid.


    I'll bet he even ate cookies when he should have been eating fruits....the horror! lol

  • I thought racism has to do with race not religion????
    I agree with Kittie about how his father was and some of those things do get carried on... its a generation thing.
    All I can say is God knows his heart and the deeds that he does.... My only concern is his position with Israel.
