“Obama did Muslim prayers?? I TOLD you he was a muslim!!”

I would imagine that’s what some folks are saying if they saw a recent article about President Obama’s planned trip to Indonesia. A quote from his teacher:

Mr Obama attended classes on Islam while the Christians attended classes on Christianity, said Effendi. Barry, he said, was alone among the pupils in that he insisted on attending both.

“His mother did not like him learning Islam, although his father was a Muslim. Sometimes she came to the school; she was angry with the religious teacher and said ‘Why did you teach him the Koran?'” said Effendi.

“But he kept going to the classes because he was interested in Islam. He would also join the other pupils for Muslim prayers.”

Heaven forbid he actually want to find out about both religions!
