Some people are particularly opposed to the likelihood that Obama is a Muslim. Why?

There is no religious test for office in the United States. In fact, the U.S. Constitution prohibits such a test. So why the opposition to recognizing the likelihood that the American President is Muslim?

I agree that religion is not a qualifying test for holding the Presidency. I do have an issue with people making false statements (or, at best, statements with a reckless disregard for the truth) about Obama's religion, when there are significant shortcomings in Obama's policy preferences that we Republicans can focus on. But that's just my opinion. Personally, I believe that Obama is a Christian, just as he says he is. GregG 20:35, 3 January 2013 (EST)

"Just as he says he is" - politicians make many false statements. Some would argue that they should make false statements when it is for the good of the country, or their political party, or whatever.
Whether Obama is a Muslim is surely not determined by what he claims to be in campaign statements.
I, for one, would certainly trust someone's statement as to what their faith is. GregG 20:44, 3 January 2013 (EST)
