Letter: Crook offers no opinion, just destructive falsehoods

I rely on the AFN as an important source for local news and services, and I occasionally look at the Opinion page. The statement in a recently published letter by Don Crook that “I know that Obama is a Muslim” is not an opinion, it is an obvious and destructive falsehood. Even political opponents of the President have responded to comments like this by saying that they “take the President at his word” for his Christian faith. The theme of this letter is that President Obama is out “to destroy America.”

Considering that one of the most important founding principles of this nation was and is freedom of religion, I feel that the denial of another person’s declaration of faith in this manner is one of the most anti-American expressions that I have recently heard of.
