Obama Muslim?

The answer is no. Lets just get that clear from the start. However there is a letter you should all read, and post your thoughts right here on this blog (and to be fair, on CNN.com too).

Here is a clip from the letter:

Again, let it be known to the world that Barack Obama is not (and has never been) a Muslim. Sadly, your presidential position vis-à-vis the Muslim world is still unenviable because some Republican adversaries sinisterly tried to paint you as a “crypto-Muslim” during the presidential election, although Sen. John McCain did not join in these absurd accusations.

However, in one fell political swoop, former Secretary of State Colin Powell bravely challenged the xenophobic undertones of his own Republican Party on “Meet the Press” by highlighting the ultimate sacrifice of a Muslim-American soldier who died in Iraq for the United States.

(for your information, you can go here to find the full endorsement from Powell for Obama)

So what do you think? You agree with his points, or do you curve away from his opinion? Where and why, or why do you agree with his points? This post is more about what you think, than what I think. I’ll get back to you with my opinion next week.
