    And a big deal was made of it at the time. Still today, he has been the only Catholic POTUS. VP Biden is the only Catholic VPOTUS. Remember when Clarence Thomas was nominated to the Supreme Court? Some liberals, notably Va Gov. Wilder made comments that because he went to a Catholic school he was somehow beholden to the Pope, despite the fact that he isn't even Catholic.

    Is Obama Muslim? I don't believe so. Was he "born" Muslim? I don't know, but Muslims do generally believe that if your parents (or male parent) is Muslim, then you are and if you leave the faith you commit apostacy, which is punishable by death.

    The idea behind that book was him being able to do something his father failed to do, graduate from Harvard.
    Reality tends to have a liberal bias.

    That is true. In a way, it was an Islamic school, because it was government run, and Indonesia is an Islamic nation. However, all faiths go to those schools. They are not madrassas. LOL.

    No, he did NOT go to an Islamic school in Indonesia. He spent three years at a Catholic school and one year at a public school (which is secular).

    Indonesia recognizes FIVE official religions, of which Islam is the majority. The schools themselves are secular. That is like saying U.S. public schools are Christian schools because a majority of Americans are Christian or that Taiwanese schools are Buddhist-Daoist because most Taiwanese are a fusion of Buddhist and Daoist... really silly argument...

    And the nation itself is not Islamic, especially at the time Obama was there. The government then was very much a secular one.

    All I know is that I have provided evidence that your claim is wrong. If you care to dispute the evidence then do so, because your ad hominem attack doesn't mean or prove anything.

    I stand corrected. Thank you, professor.

    Not trying to be a jerk to Catholics or anything but was rather making a point.

    No matter how he answered, I could have concluded that he wasn't a real Christian because he doesn't do, what one sect of Christianity does.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
