Obama claims to be a Christian and attends a Christian church.

His father was a Muslim, but he was raised by his Christian mother. He says he did attend a "predominately Muslim" school when living abroad as a child. This has been characterized as a "madrassa" by his opponents.

I don't think he ever said anything about being sworn in on the Koran, that was someone else (a HR member).

1. He was taught in a public school in Indonesia.
2. You're thinking of someone else, Keith Ellison, from Michigan. An amusing piece of trivia: He used Thomas Jefferson's Quran.

Obama's father was raised Muslim, but was an atheist by the time he was an adult. Obama's mother was an atheist. Obama became a Christian on his own, probably as an adult.

People seem to be very confused by this whole religious progression, but in a lot of families, parents allow their children to make their own choice.
