I am getting most of this information from the snopes.com article which researches the urban legend that Obama is a Muslim. Of course, even if Obama was a Muslim or raised by Muslims, that would not necessarily make him a terrorist or anti-American.
Obama’s Birthdate: August 4, 1961 (which makes him my age and means his birthday is coming up)
Biological Father: Barack Hussein Obama Sr., who was born in Kenya.
Mother: Ann Dunham, who was born in Wichita KS. They were attending the University of Hawaii.
Religion of father – Raised Muslim but became an athiest/agnostic
Religion of mother – religion should be respected with detachment.
When Obama was 2 years old, his parents got a divorce. When he was 6, his mother remarried Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian.
Religion of stepfather: Nominal Muslim
The family moved to Jakarta, Indonesia where Obama attended both Catholic and Muslim schools. The ‘Muslim’ school that Obama attended was a public school, and was Muslim because most of the students there were Muslims. There was a few hours of religious instruction a week, but not religious instruction that encouraged terrorism. It was not a Madrassa, did not focus on religion, and was not radical Wahabbist.
Obama’s mother then divorced again, and Obama went back to the US to be raised by his maternal grandmother.
Obama’s Religion: Christian
In the mid 1980s Obama went down the aisle of Chicago’s Trinity United Church in response to an altar call by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright where he became an active member. Obama did not get elected into public office until 1996 so this predates his political career.
His step sister, who is ten years younger, is a Buddhist.
Obama on the Abortion Issue
…and yes, he has inhaled Marijuana but believes that was a mistake. He believes that marijuana should be kept illegal, but possibly prescribed by doctors under strict guidelines in the same way morphine and other pain killers are. Obama is in favor of the war on drugs.
