Obama Defends His Christian Religion

NELSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Democrat Barack Obama says he's tired of questions about his religion. The Democratic presidential candidate told a town hall meeting Sunday in Nelsonvile, Ohio, in the state's rural southeast, that he is a devout Christian who prays to Jesus every night. He told audience members they would feel right at home at his church in Chicago.

Obama said misinformation - including long-standing suggestions that he is a Muslim - is being spread by his opponents.

A voter questioned the Illinois senator about his religion as he and rival Hillary Rodham Clinton crossed paths heading into Tuesday's primaries in Ohio and Texas.

I believe he is a Christian, but I don't think that's as important as his policies and his ability to carry out all his promises. I realize why Americans would not vote for a Muslim, although I know a couple of very patriotic people who practice the Muslim faith. My best friend married a Muslim from the Middle East and he loved this country. (He was shot in a convenience store hold up.)

As time goes by it becomes more and more important who is in power, now that there is a European Union and a possible future "World Government".
