Was his dad a Sunni or a Shi’ite?
If you presume Obama is a crypto-Muslim it matters: Sunnis regard Shi’ites as semi-Christian heretics and have gone to war with them almost as often as they’ve gone to war with non-Muslims. If his dad was a Shi’ite and he’s a crypto-Muslim, then no.
His step-father would probably have a lot more to do with Obama's knowledge of Islam. If I'm not mistaken, Soetoro was Sunni.

Seems to be he was quite a piece of sh’ite.
