On February 20th, 2012, Rick Santorum's spokeswoman
retracted a comment Santorum made, saying, "He was not questioning
the president's character, he wasn't questioning the president's
Since then, I have had several emails asking me my opinion of whether
Barack Obama is a Muslim, or not. My personal view is that he is more
Muslim than Christian, but being the ObamaMessiah, he's really above all
that religious nonsense.
But, what does the evidence say?
Islam is patralineal. Barack Obama's grandfather was a Muslim. His
father was a Muslim, According to Islamic theologians, and The New York
Times, Barack Obama is either a Muslim, or an apostate Muslim.
reports, "His [Obama] conversion, however, was a crime in Muslim
eyes; it is 'irtidad' or 'ridda,' usually translated from the Arabic as
'apostasy,' but with connotations of rebellion and treason. Indeed, it
is the worst of all crimes that a Muslim can commit, worse than murder
(which the victimís family may choose to forgive)."
According to Obama, his religious education as a child was clearly in
On page 142 of his autobiography, "Dreams From My Father," Obama
mentions studying the Quran and describes the public school as "a Muslim
"In the Muslim school, the teacher wrote to tell mother I made faces
during Koranic studies."
Tine Hahiyary, one of Obama's teachers and the principal of the
school from 1971 through 1989,
said that Barry actively took part in the Islamic religious lessons
during his time at the school. His teacher was named Maimunah and she
lived in the Puncak area, the Cianjur Regency.
"I remembered that he had studied 'mengaji' (recitation of the
Quran)," Tine said.
An American Expat in Southeast Asia
writes: "The actual usage of the word 'mengaji' in Indonesian and
Malaysian societies means the study of learning to recite the Quran in
the Arabic language rather than the native tongue. "Mengagi" is a word
and a term that is accorded the highest value and status in the mindset
of fundamentalist societies here in Southeast Asia. To put it quite
simply, 'mengaji classes' are not something that a non practicing or
so-called moderate Muslim family would ever send their child to. To put
this in a Christian context, this is something above and beyond simply
enrolling your child in Sunday school classes."
Maya Soetoro-NG, Obama's sister
was quoted in The New York Times, saying, "My whole family was
Muslim, and most of the people I knew were Muslim."
Maya thinks of Barack Obama as a member of her family.
But, here is the smoking gun -- in an interview with Nicholas Kristof,
published in The New York Times, Obama
recited the Muslim call to prayer, the Adhan, "with a first-class
The opening lines of the Adhan (Azaan) is the Shahada:
"Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme! Allah is
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that
there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet... "
According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim
declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound
statement expresses a Muslim's complete acceptance of, and total
commitment to, the message of Islam.
Obama knows this from his Quranic studies -- and he knows the New
York Times will publish this fact and it will be seen throughout the
Regardless of what Obama says his religion is, what message was he
sending the world's 1.2 billion Muslims?
But Team Obama says Barack Obama is a "committed Christian," even
though his public affirmation of his Muslim faith and other related
accounts were published in The New York Times.
So it's pretty clear that "the
newspaper of record" is convinced that Obama was, or is, Muslim.
But Team Obama still insists that Barack Obama is a "committed
Christian." But is their assertion one of fact or one of political
As an adult, Obama's religious experience was hardly mainstream
Christianity. The only form of Christianity he's ever been around is the
angry Marxist Black Liberation Theology preached to him by his
"religious mentor," the
Rev. Jeremiah A.
Wright is a leftist black nationalist preacher, who preaches
African-American unity through antipathy toward whites. He dabbled in
Islam, and received his master's degree from the University of Chicagoís
Divinity School with a focus on Islam in West Africa during the 19th
Century -- when the trans-Atlantic Slave Trade was at its zenith.
Wright sought to build his church on the black "Theology
of Liberation," the Marxist ideology introduced in 1968 by Rev.
James Cone of New York. It emphasizes Africa's contribution to
Christianity rather than that of mainstream theologians.
Black Liberation Theology embraces a black God.
Theology's god isn't the loving, forgiving, wise, and powerful God most
Christians know. Obama's god, the god of Trinity, is not in the business
of bringing people together, instead he is a god that is totally
exclusive to the black community. White Americans need to realize that
Obama's god is not here for understanding, or reconciliation. Obama's
god is here to participate in the destruction of the white race by any
Barack Obama's Jesus, a black man, was sent to
this world by God to endure the pain and humiliation of black people in
order to free them from the oppression of whites and transform them into
liberating servants. Trinity's Jesus is not the Jesus of the bible. So
when Obama says Rev. Wright, "introduced me to Jesus," he is speaking of
a Jesus that belongs solely to the black community. In the words of Rev.
Wright's mentor and most prominent theologian in this religion, James
Cone, "Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified
totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and
against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.
The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the
black community ... Black theology will accept only the love of God
which participates in the destruction of the white enemy."
people doubt that Obama can believe this stuff, but Obama admits that
the first thing that attracted him to Trinity was the "Black
Value System." A system based on James Cone's revelation that Jesus
is for black people only, "In the New Testament, Jesus is not for all,
but for the oppressed, the poor and unwanted of society, and against
oppressors ... Either God is for black people in their fight for
liberation and against the white oppressors, or he is not." Add to this
his twenty year membership, marriage, and baptism of his daughters and
you have a man that is up to his ears in hatred of white people.
America be warned, Obama's god is very similar to the god of jihad
and terror. Obama's faith and extreme Islam share a common thread: they
both see America as an oppressor that god has decided to destroy. As
James Cone says, "What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black
Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors
here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating
in this holy activity, we must reject his love."
fought the infiltration of Marxists promoting Liberation Theology in
the church. In "Liberation Theology" (2007) he wrote:
the Marxist ideology of liberation had been consistently applied, a
total lack of freedom had developed, whose horrors were now laid bare
before the eyes of the entire world. Wherever politics tries to be
redemptive, it is promising too much. Where it wishes to do the work of
God, it becomes not divine, but demonic."
So, it's up to the
reader to decide whether Obama is a Muslim, a Chritian, or something
Personally, I believe
Obama's religion is Marxism. He's a Marxist who is empathetic
Christianity? Oh that! That's political.
Obama explained his relationship to Christianity himself. In the
paperback version of "The Audacity of Hope," in the chapter entitled
"Faith," beginning on page 195, and ending on page 208, Obama tells us
that he doesnít really have any profound religious belief, but that in
his early Chicago days he felt he needed to acquire some spiritual
