Obama's half-sister implies he is an ex-Muslim apostate

Editor & Publisher has a preview of a Sunday New York Times Magazine interview with Barack Obama's half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng.

"...Mom didn't really emphasize the Koran, but we read little parts of it. We did listen to morning prayers in Indonesia."

Solomon then wonders if she was "worried" about even mentioning Islam, given the false accusations against her brother. She answers, "I'm not worried. I don't want to deny Islam....At the same time, it has been erroneously attached to my brother. The man has been a Christian for 20 years."

I'm not real good at math, but Obama was born in 1961 and therefore must be -- uhm... carry the one... -- around forty-seven.

So if Obama's been a Christian for 20 years, what was his religious affiliation prior to the conversion to Christianity? And, if Obama was a Muslim and later recanted that faith, he's technically an apostate.
