Are we OK with a Muslim President?
Original post made by Bystander, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Dec 19, 2007
It is beginning to bother me that with one of our leading presidential candidates having been raised Muslim, even if he is not making an issue out of it, that the above question is not being asked. When I see criticism and discussion about the religion of two other candidates, Mormonism and Christian, being discussed in the media or elsewhere, I wonder if we are in danger of having double standards. Or, is it now politically correct (pun intended) to ignore those with possible non-Christian leanings, but seriously question those with Christian faith?
