Obama's religion

The thing that has bugged my dad the most about Obama's campaign (although he is a supporter) is Obama's constant reiteration that he is Christian. (We're a non-religious family so that tends to rub us the wrong way; although intellectually obviously we don't care, sometimes you have that gut reaction to someone where you want them to believe the exact same things that you do.)

I've been telling him all along that he has to repeat that fact because generally you don't get elected in this country if you are anything but Christian, but lately I've changed my tactic to "if he doesn't keep saying that, people will keep talking about how he's Muslim." It's seriously fucked up. So hear hear, Alex Balk, for this comment.

I also know he can't say what he really believes. Which stinks.
