No, Obama is not a muslim, despite the hilarious raggings of Steven Colbert.

Why would it scare you even if Obama followed the Islam faith?

Please note: the religion is called Islam. Muslims are people of a certain ethnicity who generally follow Islam. It may be highly offensive if you don't use this term correctly.

Yeah, what does it matter if he follows Islam? There's a big difference between your average Muslim and the terrorist radicals. My dad said he knew some Muslims once and they were some of the nicest people he'd ever met.

Yes there is evidence that his father was a muslim extremist...
But frankly i like Obama more than i do Hilary...
And even though he is a muslim and his father was a muslim extremist...
I dont think that he is an extremist...
He strikes me as a good man.

I can speak for myself that who your parents are does not necessarily negate who you are.

I agree wish Asherlee on this one, just because your parents are one thing doesnt mean you have to that, like a religion or job forsay.

Dude, there are people who follow the Islam faith that, I know it's hard to believe, are not terrorists! Is that amazing or what? Also, Obama is a christian, and has always been one. And no, Serb, his father was not an extremest. Also, Islam is the second largest religeon in the world, so don't be mean to them.
