"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." There is no denying that President Obama made these comments. They were taken verbatim from his speech before the United Nations last week ("W.H. insists Obama U.N. remarks spoke out against 'slander' toward everyone 'equally,' " Web, Sept. 25).

Mr. Obama placed the Prophet of Islam ahead of Jesus Christ. If he were truly a Christian, he wouldn't do that. He was pandering to the audience. He was summarizing his foreign policy: submission.

A Christian, a Muslim, a Mormon or an atheist -- any could theoretically be our president. The kind of person we can't have in office is a deceiver. Even the radical Rev. Jeremiah Wright doubts Mr. Obama's Christianity, as presented in "The Amateur," by Edward Klein.

What Mr. Obama should have said is, "The future must not belong to those who suppress free speech."
