Why do people believe a Muslim, a Buddhist or a Jew cannot be President.


During this election campaign many people are falsely accusing Obama of being a Muslim. Why can't a president be a member of a religion other than Christianity?

    Joe Lieberman was a vice presidential candidate; he's Jewish. I don't recall it being a problem back then.

    I live in a predominantly Muslim country and I have no problem. I think you are confusing Muslim extremists with mainstream Muslims. There is a difference, much like the Christian right and mainstream Christians.
