Questions asked about Barack H. Obama


Note:  You might want to start at the Barack Obama Index Page, especially if you arrived here by using a search engine.

Barack Obama has been elected to the office of US President.  Long before election day, a lot of important questions came up.  Because so much is at stake, these questions still merit further consideration.

On this page, some of the questions people ask about Senator Obama:

Is Obama a Christian?

Mr. Obama claims to be a Christian, but he supports unlimited abortion* on demand, as well as special rights and privileges for homosexuals.*  The Bible makes it very clear that Christianity is incompatible with both abortion and homosexuality.

On a separate page, I provide abundant evidence that Mr. Obama is a habitual liar.

Barack Obama's web site says that he "is a committed Christian."  So it is only natural to wonder:  Where does Senator Obama go to church, now that he has split with the TUCC?  The answer is obvious:  Barack Obama claims to be a Christian, but he does not go to church.

Quoting from an article in Newsweek:  "After he began his run for the U.S. Senate, he says, the family sometimes didn't go to Trinity for months at a time.  The girls have not attended Sunday school."  As far as I can tell, he has attended a church service only one time since leaving the TUCC.  Is that the behavior of a "committed Christian?"

Updated 12/31/2009: After almost one year in office, there is one report that the Obamas have gone to church a total of three times.  See further commentary toward the bottom of this subsection.



Black Christians: Shame! Shame! Shame!  Here are a few of the numerous things on Obama's anti-Christian agenda.  Obama supports same-sex marriage and has vowed to be an advocate for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities.  Obama supports abortion, including infanticide (making it illegal to provide medical aid to a baby who has survived a failed abortion).  Despite their strong will to survive, these babies must be left to die.  Massive governmental controls hidden in ObamaCare include forcing Christian institutions to fund abortion services against the teachings of their faith. [...] Indisputable facts are available everywhere exposing Obama to be the most anti-Christian president in U.S. history.

Asked if he converted Obama from Islam to Christianity, Wright said, "That's hard to tell." New Book Casts Doubt on Obama's Christian Identity.  The liberal media have harangued figures such as Franklin Graham when they have refused to state categorically that Barack Obama is a Christian.  Now comes author Edward Klein telling Sean Hannity that Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of United Church of Christ in Chicago, told him that he "made it comfortable" for Obama to accept Christianity "without having to renounce his Islamic background."  All of this is consistent with our point, made in 2010, that Muslims could join Wright's church without giving up their Muslim faith.  And while Obama accepted Christianity, in the sense of calling himself a Christian, there is no evidence that he was ever officially baptized into Wright's church.

Bob Jones III has doubts about Obama's credentials as a Christian. Bob Jones III Unplugged.  "I have a great distrust for him," he said.  "I think he's moving this country in a socialist direction as fast as he can...  His whole background to me is colored with suspicion."  Asked whether he doubts Obama's identity as a Christian, he added, "I've no reason to think he's a Christian...  Anyone can say he's a Christian.  Some people will say whatever they think the politically helpful thing would be.  I say, 'Where is the evidence that he is a Christian?'"

White House praises defeat of abortion amendment.  White House officials are praising the defeat of an anti-abortion proposal in Mississippi that would have defined life as beginning at conception.

Obama's holy war.  Mr. Obama has a well-earned image problem in the faith community.  According to Gallup, his approval rating among those who attend services tracks eight points lower than among those who attend seldom or never.  Government actions justify concern that the Obama administration is seeking to tear down the wall of separation protecting the church from the state.

Steyn: Religion questions in GOP debates an effort to 'embarrass' candidates.  [National Review columnist Mark] Steyn said this was particularly true since the bizarre answers the current commander-in-chief, President Barack Obama, gave during his 2008 campaign involving his interpretation of what constitutes sin.  "I mean, you could go back to Obama's thing," he continued.  "Obama gave the most ludicrous answer to that when he said his definition of sin was out of being out of alignment with my values, as he put it — quote, 'my values.'  In other words, Barack Obama worships at the first church of himself.

Can Obama Call Himself a Christian?  A mini debate has exploded on several blogs over whether President-elect Barack Obama can call himself a Christian.  If you're just catching up, first read this 2004 interview with Obama.

The Christian Case Against Barack Obama.  After examining the material it becomes clear that Barack Obama's words and his deeds do not reflect biblical Christianity. ... The Christian case against Barack Obama is clear.  No believing Christian should vote for Barack Obama on November 4.

Affadavit of Bishop Ron McRae:  [Scroll down to page 3]  Additionally, it is common knowledge throughout both the Christian and Muslim communities in Kenya, that contrary to news media propagandas here in the United States, US Senator Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim and not a Christian, and that he was born in Mombassa, Kenya and not in the state of Hawaii as falsely purported by the Obama campaign for presidency of the United States.  Mr. Obama's cousin [Raila Odinga] ran his failed campaign for the Kenyan presidency in the identical fashion of Senator Obama's American campaign strategy, and that being to join a nominal Christian church in order to publicly profess to be a Christian, while maintaining their actual Muslim beliefs, in order to sway public opinion away from the actual fact of his strong Muslim beliefs, family and goals.

God and Barack Obama.  The Obama girls have never attended Sunday school — a definite contrast with most White House children.  Even wayward president's kids like Ron Reagan, a proud atheist, was taken to church every Sunday.  Obama explains of his daughters' religious education:  "I'm a big believer in a faith that is not imposed but taps into what's already there, their curiosity of spirit."  Once Obama ran for the U.S. Senate, he skipped church for months at a time.  Now that he publicly parted ways with Reverend Wright, reports Newsweek with a gentle wink, "Obama is a little spiritually rootless again."

Obama's Views Not Consistent With Christianity, Conservative Says.  Americans should question Sen. Barack Obama's (D-Ill.) commitment to Christianity based on his "disregard" for unborn life, well-known black conservative author and activist Star Parker said.  "Based on his disregard and disrespect for human life, we should question his insistence that he's a Christian.  It is inconsistent with the biblical world view to think that not only is abortion okay, but he goes so far as to support partial-birth abortion," Parker told CNSNews.com in an interview.

The Unitarian Church and Obama's Religious Upbringing.  Obama hid his Unitarian connections during the campaign.  In a 2006 speech, Obama explained:  "I was not raised in a particularly religious household, as undoubtedly many in the audience were.  My father, who returned to Kenya when I was just two, was born Muslim but as an adult became an atheist.  My mother, whose parents were non-practicing Baptists and Methodists, was probably one of the most spiritual people and kindest people I've ever known, but grew up with a healthy skepticism of organized religion herself.  As a consequence, so did I."

The Prophet Obama, Global Leader of Godless Leftism.  Obama believes in the god of Marx.  He believes, as well, that he is the great prophet of this secular religion.  People in less sophisticated areas of our nation may cling to the God of the Bible, but Obama, like other European Leftists, knows that Das Kapital is the only Holy Scripture which is eternally and immutably true.  Obama has studied the writings of fanatical monks like Saul Alinsky, and taken to heart their message of winning at all cost.

Obama's Religious Ruse: 'I've Always Been a Christian'.  Barack Obama insists that he is a "devout Christian" of "deep faith," and Big Media echoes his claim without question.  Even some critics hesitate to challenge the validity of that claim.  The ruse that he is a Christian must be exposed for what it really is:  Obama's cloak to conceal that he is a Marxist from a Muslim background, for which he holds widespread support in the Islamic world.  This series of three articles will analyze his exploitation of Christian rhetoric to serve the subterfuge.

Fully invested in your misery.  Obama seems happier these days.  It is almost as if the disembodied spirit of his mentor, Saul Alinsky, is watching and smiling.  Americans are suffering.  Losses in the stock market, panic in the financial market, pain at the gas pump and in the grocery — all these miseries of average Americans are a delicious narcotic to socialists like Barack Obama.  What was the historic maxim of the Left?  "The worse, the better."  Alinsky said that if there was an afterlife, "I will unreservedly choose to go to hell."  This is the man whose mind guides Obama's thoughts.

Obama:  Premature Babies Aren't People.  On the federal level a similar bill passed 98-0 garnering a yea vote from pro-abortion stalwart Barbara Boxer.  But back in Illinois, Barack Obama had problems with this type of legislation.  He spoke on the floor of the Illinois Senate in opposition to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act — in fact, he was the only senator to do so.  The following year he spoke against the born alive bill again.  As a rabid proponent of legalized abortion, Obama voted against the bill or worked for its defeat on three separate occasions.

Obama Lied About His Abortion Record.  The New York Sun reported that Obama's campaign has admitted that the senator voted against giving medical care to babies born alive after an abortion attempt — a fact that the campaign originally dismissed as a "smear."  The reality behind Obama's rhetoric is that he worked against efforts to ban the gruesome practice of leaving babies who survived failed abortions to die.

A Catholic Case Against Barack.  Thrice in the Illinois legislature, Obama helped block a bill that was designed solely to protect the life of infants already born, and outside the womb, who had miraculously survived the attempt to kill them during an abortion.  Thrice, Obama voted to let doctors and nurses allow these tiny human beings die of neglect and be tossed out with the medical waste.  How can a man who purports to be a Christian justify this?

Obama Lied About Abortion Record.  Newly discovered documents from the Illinois state archives prove Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has lied about his opposition to legislation requiring health officials to provide care to babies who survived abortion as an Illinois state senator. … Now there's documentation showing Obama did vote against a version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act that contained language to protect abortion rights identical to the bill that passed 98-0 in the U.S. Senate.

Influential Evangelical Lobby Attacks Obama's Christian Credentials.  [Scroll down]  Obama's progressivism, however, leads him to conclusions that are morally untenable, if not reprehensible, to Evangelicals and other traditionalist Christians.  He approves of same-sex romantic and sexual relationships, as do his church, his pastor and his denomination.  He supports abortion for any reason, by any method, at any stage of pregnancy including during the birth process.  In an E-mail under his wife Michelle's signature, his campaign for US Senate championed Roe v. Wade and partial-birth abortion.  In 2002 as an Illinois legislator, Obama even voted against the Induced Infant Liability Act, which would have protected babies that survived late-term abortion.

Obama's Stealth Pro-Abortion Stance:  In response to a Pennsylvania voter's question about elementary school sex education, Obama said:  "Look, I got two daughters — nine years old and six years old.  I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby."  This makes two things clear.  First, Senator Obama supports abortion on demand — even "convenience" abortions — for minors, including his own daughters; and second, Obama considers babies a "punishment" he'd rather spare his daughters, even if those daughters have to abort Obama's own unborn grandchildren to avoid that particular "punishment."  That unguardedly candid public statement is political dynamite — or it would be, if the media had reported on it.

Obama's Christian Creds Vs. Abortion and Infanticide:  This, "I don't want them punished with a baby," is perhaps the most self-revelatory statement Barack Obama has uttered in public since he began his campaign for the Presidency. … Because it goes to the personal. It goes to the extent of wholehearted approval of killing one's own grandchildren if they happen to have been conceived inconveniently.

The Gospel According to Obama:  As the saying goes, faith without works is dead.  Obama's sanctimonious chatter about religion only underscores how little he understands about how those concepts are viewed by the most faith-conscious Americans, for whom actions will speak louder than words alone.

NARAL Pro-Choice Obama:  One reason that the national board of NARAL, the pro-abortion lobbying organization, endorsed Sen. Barack Obama, and encouraged its state membership to do the same, was a series of behind the scenes conversations between the Obama campaign and NARAL.  "The message was, get on board or risk losing influence," says an Obama strategist.  "We needed one of these [feminist or pro-abortion] groups to step up and walk away from Hillary.

Barack Obama, Man of Faith.  Obama the Christian is a devout believer in unlimited abortion rights.  He denies the existence of Hell.  He came to Christianity through social organizing with activist religious [people].  His devout Christianity derives from the secular humanist "values" his atheist mother imbued him with.  He believes, with all his heart, in the separation of church and state — except when he campaigns in black churches, in violation of that separation, and in violation of the tax code.  Obama wears his religion on his sleeve in black churches, but in dealing with the mainstream media, attacks the same behavior, at least as far as white, conservative Christians are concerned.

It's Barack, Like It or Not.  Republicans will be prepared to use Obama's history of uncompromising, extreme liberalism to undermine his claim to be a bipartisan uniter.  He'll have difficulty, for example, explaining away his radical and heartless position supporting partial-birth abortion and, some argue, even certain cases of infanticide.

Infanticide candidate for president.  On abortion, Obama is an extremist.  He has opposed the Supreme Court decision that finally upheld the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act against that form of infanticide.  Most startlingly, for a professed humanist, Obama — in the Illinois Senate — also voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.  I have reported on several of those cases when, before the abortion was completed, an alive infant was suddenly in the room.  It was disposed of as a horrified nurse who was not necessarily pro-life followed the doctors' orders to put the baby in a pail or otherwise get rid of the child.

Obama:  The Sermon on the Mount Justifies Same-Sex Unions.  Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) told a crowd at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio, Sunday that he believes the Sermon on the Mount justifies his support for legal recognition of same-sex unions.  He also told the crowd that his position in favor of legalized abortion does not make him "less Christian."

Obama's Bible Defense of Same-Sex Unions Wrong, Experts Say.  Kiera McCaffrey, director of communications for the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, said it is a mistake for Obama to look to the Bible as a playbook for his political aspirations.  "It seems pretty bogus using (the Bible) to justify civil unions," McCaffrey told Cybercast News Service.  "He should be using secular reasons to back it up.  "He can search the whole Bible and not find anything that justifies gay marriage or same-sex unions," she said.

Media silent on Obama's controversial interpretation of scripture.  Senator Obama (D-Illinois) boldly declared in a campaign speech recently that states should legalize "same-sex unions" for homosexuals.  "If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount," says Obama.  "Which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans."  Bob Knight, director of the Culture and Media Institute, says the major television networks and most major newspapers did not report on Obama's remarks, which Knight says amount to a severe distortion of scripture.

Why Does Obama Hate Marriage?.  Specifically Barack Obama wishes to pass "ENDA" the employment non-discrimination act.  Or so it's called.  What it really consists of is the most diabolical way ever conceived to punish every voice in America, who under present law, have every right, to speak to their houses of worship, family, and spouse as to the scientific, mental health, and diseased ridden drawbacks of engaging in homosexual behavior. ... ENDA would directly challenge and seek to limit religious expression, doctrine, theology, and practice.  Senator Barack Obama knows this, and supports it with all his might.

Barack Hussein Obama Refused:  "I Did Not Want To Concede".  As an Illinois state senator, Barack Hussein Obama refused to support legislation to protect babies that survived late-term abortions, claiming "I did not want to concede."  To what was Obama referring?  His statement was in reference to babies that were fully outside their mothers' wombs.  Thus, Obama did not want to concede the fact that babies who survived a late term abortion were in fact "persons."  He was the only senator of the Democrat Party to speak against baby protection legislation.  He was the only legislator from either side of the political isle that took his position.

Obama is no moderate:  His radical position on 'abortion' after birth.  [Scroll down]  So, what are we to make of Obama's votes against protecting the right to life for living babies who have survived attempted abortions?  Such babies are sometimes born alive as a result of late-term induced labor abortions, often sought when babies are believed (sometimes in error) to have genetic defects such as Down syndrome.  Earlier this decade, such living, breathing, babies who survived labor were "shelved" — left to die and disposed of with other medical waste, or were "aborted" — killed outside the womb.  The practice was ultimately banned by unanimous Congressional votes, as even the most pro-abortion Senate Democrats — including every defender of partial-birth abortion — recognized that killing these breathing babies is no longer abortion in any real sense.  It crosses the line; it is infanticide.  Yet, incredibly, Obama repeatedly worked to deny these living babies any right to life.

Small Church's Obama Sign Causes Big Controversy.  The sign in front of a small church in a small town is causing a big controversy in Jonesville, S.C.  Pastor Roger Byrd said that he just wanted to get people thinking.  So last Thursday, he put a new message on the sign at the Jonesville Church of God.  It reads:  "Obama, Osama, hmm, are they brothers?"  Byrd said that the message wasn't meant to be racial or political.  "It's simply to cause people to realize and to see what possibly could happen if we were to get someone in there that does not believe in Jesus Christ," he said.

The Audacity of Death:  According to Barack Obama, Gianna Jessen shouldn't exist.  Miss Jessen is an exquisite example of what antiabortion advocates call a "survivor."  Well into her third trimester of pregnancy, Gianna's biological mother was injected with a saline solution intended to induce a chemical abortion at a Los Angeles County abortion center.  Eighteen hours later, and precious minutes before the abortionist's arrival, Gianna emerged.  Premature and with severe injuries that resulted in cerebral palsy.  But alive.  Had the abortionist been present at her birth, Gianna would have been killed, perhaps by suffocation. … As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama twice opposed legislation to define as "persons" babies who survive late-term abortions.

Reaction to Obama — babies are God's gift, not a 'punishment'.  Pro-life advocate Wendy Wright says presidential candidate Barak Obama's recent comment that he wouldn't want his daughters to be "punished with a baby" reveals much about where the Democrat stands on the issue of the sanctity of all human life — and shows his true persona.

The Editor says... Senator Obama's words directly contradict the Bible, which says,
"Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."
When Will We Admit the Truth About Barack Obama?  Notice he mentioned "religion" in the same breath as "guns" and "antipathy to people," sandwiched right in between the two.  It's hard to escape the conclusion that he draws an equivalency among those things, which speaks volumes.  If you're a person of faith, you understand that we're supposed to cling to religion.  After all, if you are serious about your faith, you must believe it is the Truth and that it is God's will that you should practice it.  And why wouldn't you have the Truth at the center of your life?  The only kind of person who wouldn't have this perspective is one who has little or no faith.

Obama Nation dot com:  Obama claims to stand for justice but neglects to try to stop abortion.  The purpose of this website is to expose the hypocrisy of Presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama.  For the sake of our nation and our progeny, Sen. Barack Hussein Obama must not become President of the United States.

Barack Obama celebrates birth of Roe vs. Wade abortion decision.  [Scroll down]  So instead today [1/22/2010] the Democratic chief executive issued a special statement celebrating the 37th birthday of the Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade abortion decision.  He particularly hailed the hallmark decision's granting of the "fundamental constitutional right to choose whether to have an abortion."

Obama Is No Joshua.  Obama can call himself anything he likes, but there is a clear requirement for one to qualify as a Christian and Obama doesn't meet that requirement.  One cannot deny central tenets of the Christian faith, including the deity and uniqueness of Christ as the sole mediator between God and Man and be a Christian.  Such people do have a label applied to them in Scripture.  They are called "false prophets."

Carter, Obama, and the Evangelicals.  [Obama's] strategy is clear — talk selectively about elements of the Biblical message that resonate with everyone (help those hurting and in need — DUH), while ignoring other vital aspects of scripture — things like righteousness and that "minor" matter of individual salvation. … But quoting stuff out of context is commonplace among politicians and spin-doctors.  Why is this kind of thing effective with people who should know better — those who profess to believe the Bible and follow Jesus?

Obama Addresses His Faith.  Of the two presumptive nominees for president, Obama has been far more outspoken about his religious beliefs than Sen. John McCain.  Evangelical Christian leaders have remained skeptical, however, that Obama's faith comports with their own, especially given his support for gay and abortion rights.

Obama:  committed to doing "the Lord's work".  Sen. Barack Obama declared Saturday [7/5/2008] to a roaring crowd of religious African-Americans at the America's Center that they should have no doubt of his commitment to his Christian faith, his nation or his political principles.

The Editor says... First of all, why does the great post-racial unifier make fund-raising speeches in all-black churches?  Second, if Senator McCain had said he was just doing "the Lord's work", the press would have responded with a week of mocking derision.  And finally, if Mr. Obama is a Christian, why does his voting record look like that of a baby-killing Marxist?

Obama says America is 'no longer Christian'.  Some have been taking issue with largely unnoticed comments made last year by Sen. Barack Obama declaring the U.S. is "no longer a Christian nation" but is also a nation of others, including Muslims and nonbelievers.  The comments have been recently recirculating on Internet blogs.  "Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation.  At least not just.  We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers," Obama said during a June 2007 speech available on YouTube.

A Closer Look At Saddleback, Obama's Faith.  The Obama campaign document titled "Unfit for Publication" focuses on whether Mr. Obama was in Rev. Jeremiah "God d--- America" Wright's church on one specific day during one of Rev. Wright's anti-America rants, and doesn't explain why Mr. Obama was there sopping up anti-America bigotry and racism for 20 years.  It doesn't explain why someone hearing constant anti-American propaganda wouldn't immediately leave the church.

See also Is the United States a Christian country? and note especially the Supreme Court opinion in Holy Trinity Church v. U.S. (1892).

Not that I really care all that much, but... Barack Obama's web site says that he "is a committed Christian."  So, just out of curiosity, where does Senator Obama go to church, now that he has split with the TUCC?

Obama Re-invents his Trinity Church History.  He did not indicate any scheduling problems or absences back in 2004, no scapegoating of his daughter.  Now he has to deal with Pastor Wright controversy and he just dreams up a different history — and Newsweek helps him along.

Editor's note: Quoting from the article in Newsweek:  "After he began his run for the U.S. Senate, he says, the family sometimes didn't go to Trinity for months at a time.  The girls have not attended Sunday school."  Is that the behavior of a "committed Christian?"

Obama skips church, heads to gym.  Obama was an infrequent churchgoer on the campaign trail, though he did make a series of appearances in the pews and pulpits of South Carolina churches ahead of that heavily religious state's primary.  The issue of where he worships is, of course, fraught.  For about two decades, Obama and his family attended Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ.

The New Messiah: Workout versus Worship.  It is easier to say that I am a Christian than to be one.  And Obama?  He attends church seldom and does not participate in the Gospel Life, the Communion of Saints, and Sacramental living.  This is quite different than that public persona who carried his Bible to church services, or made grandiose speeches from a pulpit during the campaign.  What cheek!  What chutzpah!  What sacrilege!  Invoking the name of Jesus does not make one a Christian anymore than honking makes one a goose.  Barak (sic) Obama, it seems to me, neither talks the talk nor walks the walk.

Lack of attendance at a Christmas service shows Barack Obama's church dilemma.  Barack Obama has long stressed the importance of religion in his life.  But as his fellow Christians around the world attended Christmas services on Wednesday and Thursday, the president-elect and his family remained sequestered at their vacation compound on the windward coast of Oahu.

He can't make it to church, but he can always find a gymnasium. Barack Obama shapes up to be a sporting leader.  Obama has spent almost every day working out obsessively in the gym while preparing for his inauguration on January 20 — granting himself a day off only at Christmas.

Life without a church community 'difficult': Obama.  President-elect Barack Obama, who last year quit his church over inflammatory remarks by its former pastor, said he finds life without a spiritual community "difficult," and said he and wife Michelle plan to step up their search for a place of worship.

Nearly a year later, Obamas still looking for a church home.  Nearly a year after a painful break from his Chicago church, President Barack Obama and his family are considering joining several churches of various denominations in the nation's capital but have yet to settle on one, and aides said that they're unlikely to decide before Easter.

The Editor says... It must be difficult to find an America-hating black separatist cult like the TUCC.  But there aren't that many churches in the District of Columbia.  Pick one.  Even Bill Clinton managed to go to church every Sunday (while he was president) and he made sure everybody saw him waving his Bible in the air.  Since Mr. Obama's church attendance is just for show, it doesn't really matter which church he selects.

Churches vie to be Obamas' spiritual home.  Aides to President Obama are quietly checking out local churches to find his new spiritual home, a delicate, complex task that must balance Obama's public profile, security needs, and personal beliefs against a discreet but intense competition among ministers to bring the first family to their pews.

When Will Obama Go to Church?  President Obama has not attended church services on any of the 11 Sundays since he took office, despite his pledge to find a new church after quitting Trinity United nearly a year ago because of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's incendiary rhetoric.  "We probably won't make any firm decision on this until January, when we know what our lives our going to be like," Obama told reporters last May at a press conference that he called to announce his break with Trinity.

Church for Obamas on Easter.  President Obama and his family are looking for a new church, but his decision represents more than merely settling on a pew.  The Obamas planned to attend Easter services Sunday, which would mark the president's first visit to a Washington church since taking office in January.

The Editor says... Actually it has been a lot longer than that.  What church has Obama attended — even once — since he left the TUCC?

Obama Family Attends Easter Service at St. John's.  The Obama family today [4/12/2009] attended an Easter Service at St. John's Episcopal Church, a very traditional choice for the holiday as nearly every president since James Madison has worshipped at the historic church that sits across from the White House.

Is Obama Hypocritical To Put His Dog Over Dogma.  On Easter Sunday, President Obama successfully concluded his long search for a new White House dog but made no progress in his simultaneous quest for a new church for his family.  Could the contrasting status regarding the First Family's two most publicized private decisions indicate that the President actually cares more about canine companionship than religious commitment?

Would a "committed Christian" president say this? Not a Christian nation, Mr. President?  President Obama told a news conference in Turkey last week that America "is not a Christian nation," thus demonstrating that it is indeed possible for a Harvard Law graduate to be correct strictly as a matter of law and otherwise completely out to lunch on the facts of history.

Can religious leaders faithfully serve the president and God at the same time?  The administration plans to open the flood gates of federal funding for embryonic stem-cell research and, in all likelihood, abortion, trampling the moral convictions of millions of ordinary Americans.  A revamped faith-based initiative, which would deny the right of charities to consider religious commitment in hiring decisions, threatens to become a protocol for secularization.  The president's education proposal throws hundreds of millions of dollars at failing public schools, but rejects vouchers for children from poor families to help them escape these mismanaged monstrosities and attend private religious schools.  In short, much of Obama's political vision contradicts the religious ideals of his prayer partners and the constituencies they supposedly represent.

Obama's Moral Slide Rule.  In President Barack Obama's moral and constitutional universe, unfettering abortion and coddling terrorists trump innocent life.  But most Americans reject his anti-life calculations.  Candidate Obama promised Planned Parenthood that he would "go on offense" by signing the "Freedom of Choice Act" as his first act as president.  It would put millions of additional lives at risk by eliminating all federal and state regulations of abortion, including bans on late term and partial birth abortion.  If these barbaric procedures are not torture, nothing is.

Instead of going to church... Obama gets in a round of golf on a sunny morning.  President Barack Obama took advantage of the summer weather in Washington on Sunday [4/26/2009] to play a round of golf.

Obama golfs fourth week straight.  Barack Obama hit the links again on Sunday, making it four straight weeks where the president has worked on his golf game.  This week, Obama played at Andrews Air Force Base.

The Obamas Find a Church Home — Away from Home.  Now, in an unexpected move, Obama has told White House aides that instead of joining a congregation in Washington, he will follow in George W. Bush's footsteps and make his primary place of worship Evergreen Chapel, the nondenominational church at Camp David.

Barack Obama still looking for church.  The White House said Monday that President Barack Obama continues "to look for a church home," and said a magazine report that he has stopped is erroneous.  White House deputy press secretary Jen Psaki said by e-mail:  "The president and first family continue to look for a church home.  They have enjoyed worshiping at Camp David and several other congregations over the months, and will choose a church at the time that is best for their family."

Meet the new First Pastor.  Time magazine's web site reported Monday that the Obamas had decided on the Evergreen Chapel as their church after visiting or sending emissaries to a variety of Washington-based churches.  A few hours later, the White House put out a statement debunking that story.  "The president and first family continue to look for a church home," White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.  "They have enjoyed worshipping at Camp David and several other congregations over the months, and will choose a church at the time that is best for their family."

The Editor says... The Camp David arrangement has one obvious advantage:  It is completely out of sight of the public.  And the news media certainly won't snitch on him if he skips church.  So unless Mr. Obama is spotted somewhere else on Sunday mornings (e.g., on a golf course or basketball court), who will know whether he actually attends the Camp David church or not?

Obama hasn't yet picked a church for his family.  President Barack Obama says he is taking his time picking a church because his choice will undergo political scrutiny.  Obama told reporters from religious news outlets on Thursday [7/2/2009] that he hasn't yet selected a place to worship in Washington but has attended services at the presidential retreat at Camp David.

The Editor says... Obama will keep shopping for a church until the news media quit asking about it.

Who needs a church when you have so few flaws? Asked What He Doesn't Like About Himself, President Obama Cites His Golf Game.  In his first interview with Russian media, President Obama was asked, "what don't you like about yourself?"  The president responded, "I have been playing golf lately, and I don't like my golf swing."

The Editor says... That explains why he spends Sunday mornings on the golf course instead of in church.  His golf swing is a greater concern.

Is it up to her? First Lady's Office Mum on When Obamas Will Pick A Church to Attend.  The White House has told CNSNews.com that First Lady Michelle Obama is in charge of handling questions from the press about whether and when the Obama family will join and attend a church in Washington.  But repeated requests to her press office asking for a response to that question have gone unanswered.  Although President Obama has not had difficulty selecting a golf course on numerous Sundays since he took the oath of office, choosing a church has resulted in a wide range of statements on the subject, from Obama himself as well as White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and Joshua DuBois, director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

Five times a day? Obama:  I used to pray every night — now I pray ALL the time.  The leader of the free world must bear a bit more responsibility in his every day life than most of us do. ... Mr Obama has admitted that while he used to pray every night, he now prays all the time — because, he admitted, 'I've got a lot of stuff on my plate'.

Obama plays golf... again.  President Obama has become quite the golf fanatic since he began his presidency.  The commander in chief is out on the links again today [7/26/2009], playing a round at Andrews Air Force Base. This is the 10th time in as many weeks that Obama has found time to squeeze in some golf (all weekends, except for one Monday.)

Steady Course:  Obama Golfs at Fort Belvoir.  After returning to the White House this afternoon [9/6/2009] from Camp David where the first family spent the last days of vacation, President Barack Obama promptly left the wife and kids for an afternoon at Fort Belvoir to play — you guessed it — a round of golf.

Obama Makes a Political Booty Call to the Church.  What's this?  Obama now needs the Church — which he's been regularly dissing — to come to his aid and help "prod Congress" to pass his Health Scare Deform Swill?

The Obama Clergy Call:  "We are God's partners in matters of life and death" Obama told rabbis in an earlier call Wednesday, according to Ben Smith at Politico.com.  Notice that Obama didn't refer to it as "serving" God.  Obama is partnering with God on life and death.

Does our president have a moral compass?  Obama portrays himself as a visionary, able to view the petty disputes that preoccupy the rest of the world from a higher plane, divorced from anything as banal as America's interest.  That posture is offensive enough.  But what if, like so many extreme leftists who came before him, he's just a man without a moral compass that points anywhere other than in direction of sharing the wealth and increasing government power?

Top Twenty Things Obama Doesn't Say:
[#8]  I heard a great message Sunday morning at church.
[#10]  I didn't realize a communist was part of my administration.  It won't happen again.

Obama: Homosexual Relationships 'Just as Real and Admirable' as Heterosexual Marriage.  President Obama delivered an unprecedented message to the Human Rights Campaign Saturday night [10/10/2009].  Sounding more like a homosexual activist than a sitting president, Obama went well beyond his expected message of "I'm here with you" on the homosexual agenda.

Obamas attend Episcopal church near White House.  President Barack Obama and his family attended Sunday services [10/11/2009] at St. John's Church, an Episcopal church on Lafayette Square just across the street from the White House.

Obama family attends St. John's Episcopal Church.  The First Family attended services at the church nearest the White House Sunday [10/11/2009], but they were no closer to deciding on a permanent place of worship.  The Obamas, who have been without a home church since President Obama broke with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, went to St. John's Episcopal Church on the other side of Lafayette Park from the White House.

Obama — Dictator or Presidential Candidate?  It now looks like Obama has confused the roles of dictator and President of a Free World Society.  His request that government officials police the airwaves for any sign of false and misleading ads that do not put him in a good light with the people is, as Ed Martin, American Issues Project president said, "nothing more than Stalinist, police state tactics against those who dare to disagree with Barack Obama."  Who does Barack Obama think he is by trying to take away freedom of speech to question whether he is a Christian or not?

Here's a rationalization:  Everybody does it. The Little Church In The East Room.  These days, most Americans have moved on from wondering about Barack Obama's church attendance habits now nearly a year into his presidency.  Some of this inattention is due, no doubt, to the swirl of events, but a measure of it is likely because Mr. Obama is demonstrating a kind of ambivalence to church attendance that has become par for the presidential course over the years (though with some exception, e.g., Jimmy Carter).

Would a Christian president allow this? Transvestites, Mao And Obama Ornaments Decorate White House Christmas Tree.  Why let a holiday season come between the White House and making some political statements?  The White House pegged controversial designer Simon Doonan to oversee the Christmas decorations for the White House.  Mr. Doonan, who is creative director of Barney's New York has often caused a stir with his design choices. ... For this year's White House, he didn't disappoint.

White House Christmas Decor Featuring Mao Zedong Comes Under Fire.  Critics of President Obama are setting their sights on the official White House Christmas Tree, which features controversial ornaments including an orb depicting Mao Zedong and another showing drag queen Hedda Lettuce.

Obama Chooses Christmas Eve as Night of Darkness For Free World.  The elephant in our living room is what moseyed in when the mainstream media took a holiday and the mask of President Barack Obama began to crack.  How long have we known in our hearts that Obama is not an American?  How long have we known that even though he professes to be one, Obama is not a Christian, nor even a Christian sympathizer and that his actions over the last year prove he is not a benevolent president.  Obama wants a healthcare bill that is signed, sealed and delivered on Christmas Eve.  Obama wants to ruin America and the Free Enterprise system that made America what it is.

No Churchgoing Christmas for the First Family.  [Scroll down]  But there's one common Christmas practice not on the First Family's schedule:  a visit to Christmas Eve church services.  Church, in fact, has been a surprisingly tough issue for the Obamas. ... [W]hile the First Family intended to find a local church to attend when they moved to Washington, concerns about crowds and displacing regular worshippers has prevented them from finding a new religious home during their first year here.

The Editor says... What Christian stays away from church because his presence might "displace regular worshippers"?  Did any previous president have that problem?  Does George W. Bush have that problem today in Dallas?  Who stays away from church because the church might become more crowded as a result?  Jimmy Carter never did.  After all, don't most church members try to drum up greater attendance at their churches?

Attempting to equate Christianity with socialism... Jesus the socialist.  Apparently not content with his congressional majority that wishes to force Americans on a long march to health care disaster, President Obama has invoked the name of Jesus to broadcast his gospel of spreading around the wealth. ... The president spoke of what Jesus "symbolizes for people all around the world," which, he said, "is the possibility of peace and people treating each other with respect."  Then, in the best tradition of a community organizer, the president said Jesus is about "doing something for other people."

Dog in the Manger on Christmas Eve.  Some media outlets are making a big splash out of the Obamas having no intention of attending Christmas church services this year.  They dithered over Easter services too.  Besides if 20 years of Jeremiah Wright's ranting was lost on them, it's likely that the Birth of Jesus Christ wouldn't grab their attention either.

The Obamas Hawaii Christmas:  Will it Include Church?  The Obama family is spending Christmas and New Years in President Obama's native Hawaii and the schedule for the next few days has no public events.  Obama has no "home" church in Honolulu from his youth, and the Obamas have only attended church services in Washington three times in the past year.

White(house) Christmas without Christ.  A writer for TIME magazine reports that the president and his family are not attending Christmas services.  Gee, what a surprise!  Barack Hussein Obama has consistently shown his lack of understanding of the Holy Bible, his disdain for the spiritual meaning of Christmas (no Nativity crèche in the White House), and his propensity to bow to Muslim leaders.  But the fact is that NO TRUE CHRISTIAN can support abortion and the federal funding thereof.

There is no mention of the word "church" in this account of Obama's Sunday in Hawaii. Basketball, beach, dinner make up Obama's Sunday.  The vacationing President Barack Obama focused yesterday [12/27/2009] on recreational activities for himself, his family and friends.

Obama, party of 16... POTUS dines out.  The night out capped off an active recreational weekend for the president, who spent about six hours on the golf course, hit the beach for a family picnic and played basketball with friends and White House staff.

Satire: How I Spent My Hawaiian Vacation.  On Christmas morning, I did what most American dads do — I got up at 6:30 a.m. and headed for some body-sculpting.  Even though Michelle told the press she got me several things for Christmas, turns out we aren't even exchanging any gifts... so, she was either making the whole thing up or taking back everything she bought for me.  What's more, she asked me in front of Oprah what I got her this year — I told Oprah I give "nicer stuff than I get" — but we left out the part about not getting each other anything at all.  Nothing says Merry Christmas more than skipping out on church and no presents for your wife.

As president, Obama stopped going to church.  Obama and his family left the White House only twice in 2009 to attend worship services in Washington, raising questions about the role of faith in the life of the president who made Christianity a cornerstone of his political ascent but was also burned by his pastor of 20 years during the presidential campaign.

It appears that Obama only goes to church when he is going to be the featured speaker. Obama speaks from pulpit, noting progress and difficulty in America.  The president, who doesn't frequently attend church in Washington and has not found a permanent congregation in the capital, joined services [1/17/2010] at the Vermont Avenue Baptist Church along with First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha.

ABC Sticks to Obama Staffers and Friends on Church Avoidance in Year One.  The Obama family's continued lack of church-going in Washington was spun by ABCNews.com into something cute and positive... No one in the ABC piece is allowed to question if Obama now has a phobia about church attendance due to his 20-year membership in the church of radical-left Rev. Jeremiah Wright.  Dwyer can't even bring himself to mention Wright's name, only that Obama quit "Chicago's embattled Trinity United Church of Christ."  He couldn't get any more specific than that.

Obama's spirituality is largely private, but it's influential, advisers say.  Every morning, sometimes as early as 5:30 a.m., a short religious passage comes across President Obama's BlackBerry, sent by one of his aides.  At other moments, Obama prays privately, his advisers said.  And when he takes his family to Camp David on the weekends, a Navy chaplain ministers to them, with the daughters attending a form of Sunday school there.  More than a year into his presidency, Obama has not chosen a church in Washington, and has attended services just four times.

The Editor says... This puff piece in the Post is clearly an attempt to paint Obama's alternative (religious) lifestyle as morally equivalent to regular attendance at church.  What does "a form of Sunday school" mean?  Obama brags about having "faith", but the word "Christian" does not appear in this article.

Chicken soup for the ever prayerful presidential soul.  [Scroll down]  The Washington Post made such an attempt the same day as the Prayer Breakfast speech:  "Every morning, sometimes as early as 5:30 a.m., a short religious passage comes across President Obama's BlackBerry, sent by one of his aides. ... At other moments, Obama prays privately, his advisers said."  So another Washington cliche is observed:  The man's faith is private, which is why we're talking about it in The Washington Post.

Obama and the Horizontal Axis of Faith:  Once again the National Prayer Breakfast has taken place, and again the Obama administration has taken a swipe at religious belief. ... Obama's address exhibits a characteristic of the left's view of religion:  sacrificing the vertical axis of faith (the praise and rightful worship of God) for an exaggerated emphasis on a vague understanding of the horizontal axis of faith (love of neighbor).

I have a dream, too.  Obama is all about deception as a disciple of Saul Alinsky rather than a good-faith problem-solver as a disciple of Jesus Christ, despite his profession to be a Christian.  The President favors appeasing Islamic Jihadists and apologizing to Muslims worldwide for America's greatness and generosity. ... Claiming to be a Christian, Obama seems to oppose them at every turn.  He had the symbols of Jesus for his speech at Georgetown University covered up and opposed the Catholic Church's anti-abortion stance during his speech at Notre Dame.

Obama's phony faith:  Barack Obama routinely laced his campaign speeches with words and phrases that resonated with voters, particularly those who practiced their faith more often than others in the body politic. ... His courtship of religious groups in the 2008 race — the most extensive ever by a Democratic candidate for president-paid off on election day.  But that was so 2008.  The campaign is over-and so, seemingly, is his embrace of Christianity.

Obama's spiritual life takes more private turn.  He named a best-selling book after a pastor's sermon and was outspoken as a candidate about the value of faith in public life. ... But since President Obama took office a year ago, his faith has largely receded from public view.

Our Last "Christian" President?  Christians used to have a biblical worldview — but now a great number of those who identify themselves as 'Christian' have ambivalence about abortion, same sex marriage, sexual promiscuity, and sound doctrine.  We live in a post-modern, post-Christian world in which the worldview is shaped more by the many colors of our culture than the black and white of God's word.  Whoever leads this nation and professes their Christianity while not challenging those laws and morays which are an anathema to God cannot be truly born again.  It's easy, though, in America today, to have it both ways.  You can sew the label of Christ on your garments but that doesn't mean you are clothed in the grace of Jesus Christ and bearing the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Obama and Charity:  [President Obama links] his faith to his policies.  "God's grace," he said, "is expressed through ... the efforts of our entire government."  The question, then, is whether Obama's faith in a tender, loving bureaucracy (aka entitlements) is consistent with his professed faith in Jesus Christ.  The answer is found quite readily in basic elements of Judeo-Christian charity.  The Second Letter to the Corinthians, for example, reads:  "Each one should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."  "Under compulsion," of course, is precisely the way entitlements are funded.

The Subtext of the Obama-Israel Dispute:  By trying to limit Jewish residency in Jerusalem, President Obama plays into this de-Judification of Jerusalem and poses a threat to both Judaism and Christianity.

If Obama were a Christian, would he act like this? No media at Obama abortion-order signing.  A day after a lavish bill signing White House ceremony on health care reform, President Obama will sign an executive order barring the law from allowing federally funded abortion, but he'll do so behind closed doors and with no media allowed. ... Not even a photographer will be allowed into the Oval Office to capture the moment.

President Obama says First Family won't join a D.C. church.  [Scroll down]  In an article on February 22, 2010, "Obama's spiritual life takes more private turn," the Boston Globe put the number of President Obama's Washington, D.C. church attendances as President to that point at four.  It is not clear if that number included the President Elect and Mrs. Obama's attendance at a prayer service at St. John's on the morning of January 20, 2009, several hours before Mr. Obama was sworn in as President.

Easter at Allen Chapel for first family.  The first family attended Easter services Sunday [4/4/2010] at Allen Chapel, an African Methodist Episcopal church in Southeast Washington, a community that was struck by violence recently.

Radicals to rule us all.  [Chai R.] Feldblum, a lesbian activist at Georgetown Law Center who has said she cannot think of a single instance in which religious freedom would trump "gay rights," is the newest commissioner on the five-member Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).  That's the agency that enforces federal civil rights laws in the workplace.  Ms. Feldblum once said the culture war could be resolved in a simple manner:  "Gays win, Christians lose."

The Editor asks... Would a Christian appoint a person with that viewpoint to any position?

Is Obama a Christian Fraud?  The increasingly notorious lack of church involvement or public religious observance by the United States' First Family has led one Christian organization to question the level of dedication President Obama truly feels to the religious identity that once lent such appeal to his campaign image.

The Black Church's Commitment to Obama.  Ninety-six percent of black voters, many of whom are Christians, cast their votes for Barack Obama.  I question:  Did your desire to see a black man in the White House trump your commitment to Christ and Christian values and principles? ... My family and most of my black friends are Christians striving to live lives which honor Christ.  And yet, there is a huge disconnect between their Christianity and their irrational, blind, and near-idol-worship of Obama.  Will the truth about Obama make a difference?  For some, I think not.  For those of you who value your commitment to Christ more than your loyalty to skin color, here are a few facts.

Does Obama Hate Black People?  With his actions as an Illinois state senator, U.S. senator, and now president, Barack Obama has rightfully earned his title as the most pro-abortion politician in American history, but a congressional report asserts that his advocacy for a new abortion policy in his "home country of Kenya" (according to Michelle Obama) may have broken the law. ... Under the Siljander Amendment, no funds for foreign assistance may be used to lobby for or against abortion, and [Congressman Chris] Smith has discovered that the Obama Administration has spent over $10 million to promote the new Kenyan constitution.

Obama, Proclaiming LGBT Pride Month, Pushes Repeal of DOMA.  Citing his commitment to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), President Obama on Friday [5/28/2010] issued a proclamation declaring June 2010 "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month."  The president also emphasized his intention to secure "adoption rights" for same-sex couples and end both employment discrimination against LGBT individuals as well as the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) compromise that bars homosexuals from serving openly in the military.

Obama and Pelosi Hijack Christianity.  [In the 2008 election season,] then-Senator Barack Obama claimed that Christian Right leaders had "hijacked" Christianity.  Hijacked?  How dare any politician claim that a group of clergymen upholding the traditional beliefs of the Christian faith is "hijacking."  Yet after winning the White House, President Obama showed the audacity to claim a biblical mandate for his agenda.  On August 19, 2009, the president held a conference call with Christian clergy, urging them to endorse his healthcare legislation as a moral issue, and claiming that their Christian duty to care for their brother obligated them to support him.  Now that is what hijacking Christianity looks like.

Islam:  Antithetical to Religious Freedom.  Barack Obama's religious practices have raised questions about his affiliation with Christianity.  For twenty years, he attended the church of controversial former Muslim Reverend Jeremiah Wright. ... Since becoming president, Obama stopped attending church, even on Christmas day, and specifically requested that no religious decorations grace the White House tree, which featured an ornament with the image of Mao Tse-Tung.  In 2009 and 2010, much to the consternation of American Christians, Obama canceled the White House National Day of Prayer ceremonies.

Do Christians Who Voted for Obama Believe His Policies are Biblical?  Perhaps many Christians think their faith can't influence casting votes in government elections.  But what fruit has such political agnosticism borne?  Are believing Barack-boosters now proud of themselves?  All modern Americans have been programmed to unthinkingly support complete "Separation of Church and State."  But consider the results of this lazy theological notion, as applied to the following subjects. ...

Obama lied, babies died.  It's hard to comprehend that intelligent people believe Obama speaks the truth.  A simple question:  If an individual encourages coldly tossing a barely breathing infant into a laundry room to die and uses the upholding of the original intent to kill the baby as an excuse, is it logical to assume such a person has a high regard for truth?  Barack Obama supports killing the unborn and if by chance the infant should happen to "burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion" by refusing to die, Barry disagrees with providing a helpless being medical care.  Plain and simple, Obama is cold and heartless.

Why is Obama Changing "Freedom of Religion" to "Freedom of Worship"?  Last November Obama used the term "freedom of worship" at the memorial service for the victims of the Ft. Hood shooting.  A few days later he did it again in speeches in both Japan and China.  In December Hillary Clinton also used that terminology three times in a speech at Georgetown University and never once used the phrase "freedom of religion".  In January of this year Clinton used the "freedom of worship" term four times while addressing senators. ... The response by many religious freedom advocates is fear of what this all means.

Obama Moves Away From 'Freedom of Religion' Toward 'Freedom of Worship'.  The change in language was barely noticeable to the average citizen but political observers are raising red flags at the use of a new term "freedom of worship" by President Obama and Secretary Clinton as a replacement for the term freedom of religion.  This shift happened between the President's speech in Cairo where he showcased America's freedom of religion and his appearance in November at a memorial for the victims of Fort Hood, where he specifically used the term "freedom of worship."  From that point on, it has become the term of choice for the president and Clinton.

"Freedom of Religion" vs. "Freedom of Worship".  That's a departure from what most Americans understand as "freedom of religion," but it may still seem like an inconsequential difference.  The truth is that changing the word "religion" to "worship" drastically changes what is protected.

Is the United States a Christian Nation?  In 2007, then-Senator Barack Obama told the Christian Broadcasting Network that the United States was "no longer just a Christian nation."  But a new Gallup poll indicates that not only is the country Christian, it is overwhelmingly Christian.

Obama No Longer Goes To Church.  During the election cycle, Senator Barack Obama stated, "I've got a wonderful community of people who are praying for me every day ... but it's not the same as going to church and hearing a choral anthem and a good sermon."  One if left to wonder, what changed after taking over the White House?  Where has President Obama's church commitment gone; is he too busy for church?

He's Not a Muslim!  ("Not that There's Anything Wrong with That")  On the one hand, we were told that Obama's relationship with [Jeremiah] Wright was irrelevant and that he slept through the hateful messages — and on the other, TUCC was where Obama practiced his professed Christianity and received inspirations for his writings. ... And through all of this, we were required to have enough suspension of belief to count Black Liberation Theology as Christian in the first place.

No Baptism Or Renunciation of Islam Required. Obama's Unique Form of 'Christianity'.  We've all heard by now that Obama became a Christian mostly to expedite his political career and that the Trinity United Church of Christ he joined, presided over by Reverend Jonathan Wright, was not exactly mainstream.  We've heard about Wright's damning of America and we know that the church was — and might still be — a hot bed of black nationalism.  But what is not as well known is that no baptism is required, nor must Muslims renounce Islam to be accepted as full members in that church.

More about the TUCC.

The myth of 'collective salvation'.  President Obama has made no secret of his belief in "collective salvation"; the religious belief that one cannot achieve salvation by himself, unless he is also concerned for the the salvation of his neighbors, and society as a whole.  By salvation of himself and his neighbors insert "for the greater good" or "income redistribution", or for that matter, any number of things.

Let Me Translate:  We Don't Believe Him — or You.  Memo to the ruling class media:  We are not ignorant or stupid.  We've not forgotten Jeremiah Wright.  It's not that we don't "know" what faith Obama subscribes to — it's more that we don't believe him.  Or you.

The un-faith of Obama.  All Obama has managed to prove over the past year is his inability to tell the truth. ... Why wouldn't there be a doubt about his Christian faith?  He's already openly declared that America is no longer a Christian nation; he continues to openly praise Islam; he bows to Muslim leaders; he claims that the Muslim call to prayer is "the most beautiful sound in the world;" he regularly quotes from the Koran and cites it for directing his life; and, he publicly called Christians derogatory names such as "bitter clingers" for holding fast to their Bibles.  Moreover, unlike people who change their names upon their conversion to Islam, Obama did not change his name upon his conversion to Christianity.

Obama's credibility is the big issue in religion poll.  Thomas Lifson and Byron York have convincingly demonstrated that the President's own behavior is the source of the one-in-five Muslim answer and that such an opinion is rational given the evidence.  In contrast, the mainstream media's response was a predictably arrogant dismay that Americans do not believe the President is a Christian, given that the Administration has said he "is obviously a Christian." ... [But] maybe six-in-ten Americans don't believe the President is a Christian precisely because he claims to be so.

Obama's True Religion:  [Scroll down]  His conscience is governed by the basest sense of self-centered and self-serving egotistical emotion.  And although President Obama does comes across as a Muslim to many people, the only real similarity he has with them is sharing the same attitude Muslim extremists have toward America.  Obama does not now, nor will he ever, practice any religion remotely affiliated with worshiping a power higher than himself.  No, America.  Barack Obama's true religion is not Muslim or Christian — his true religion is himself.

Obama:  Tee-ing off the nation, one Sunday at a time.  Another Sunday, another missed opportunity for President Obama to prove to America he's not a Muslim.  But instead of attending church services at one of the dozens and dozens of quaint, island Christian churches yesterday morning, the commander in chief hit Our Lady of the Fairways, aka the Vineyard Golf Club, yet again, to play 18.

Obama:  Muslim Missionary?  (Part 2).  Last week, the media, White House and nation were in a hullabaloo over a Pew Research Center poll that revealed that 1 in 5 Americans believes President Barack Obama is a Muslim.  The poll received so much attention and response that the White House released a rebuttal reiterating that President Obama is "a committed Christian."  The fact is Americans are more baffled now by Obama's personal religion than they were when he first came into office.

How Christian is Obama?  With all the discussions about whether or not the President is a Christian, I did something I'd never expected to do:  I went to the library, checked out a copy of The Audacity of Hope, and read it.

Do Most Christians Decorate Christmas Trees Like the Obamas?  Our beloved president has expressed bewilderment at recent polls showing large numbers of Americans doubt his commitment to Christianity.  Because we hate to see our president even a wee bit flummoxed, let's help him out.  Do most Christians you know choose to decorate their Christmas tree with smiling images of Chairman Mao, who murdered at least 50 million of his countrymen, as well as signed photos of transvestite Hedda Lettuce?

Obama:  Muslim Missionary?  (Part 3).  In a 2009 speech in Cairo, President Obama committed to "fight against negative stereotypes" of Islam "wherever they appear," so why doesn't he also consider it his responsibility to do that for Christianity, especially because the majority of Americans still profess affinity with Christendom and the White House insists Obama is "a committed Christian"?

Christian voters losing faith in Obama.  Though several moderate to conservative evangelical pastors support the president, polls show that a significant percentage of conservative Christians remain skeptical about Obama's sincerity when it comes to the values that he says they share, and many say they doubt his faith.

Obama and family attend church service.  President Obama and his family attended services this morning at St. John's Church, which is on the other side of Lafayette Square from the White House.  St. John's, often visited by presidents, is Episcopalian.

Here's the rest of the story, not reported by the American media: Obama goes to church to hear a Muslim speaker!  Yesterday, on Sunday, September 19, 2010, the Obama family attended church for only the third time in a year.  They went on foot to the St. John's Episcopal Church situated across the Lafayette Park.  But what is widely not reported by the White House and the MSM is that on that particular Sunday in that particular church, Dr. Ziad Asali, M.D., a Muslim, founder and president of the American Task Force on Palestine, was the guest speaker.  He was there to speak on the subject of "Prospects of the two-state solution in the Middle-East."

Obama makes rare church appearance on same day as pro-Palestinian teaching?  Before last Sunday, US President Barack Obama and his family had only been to church a handful of times since he became commander-in-chief.  And two of those visits were for Inauguration Day and Easter.  The Obama family's sixth time at church in Washington, DC may also have been for a special occasion — to hear a pro-Palestinian activist teach about how Israel needs to surrender its biblical heartland for a phony "peace."

Obama questioned on abortion.  According to the Pew survey released last month, most of those who think Obama is Muslim are Republicans, but the number of independents who believe he is Muslim has expanded significantly, from 10 percent last year to 18 percent this summer.  In March 2009, 36 percent of African-Americans said they didn't know what religion Obama practices.  Now, 46 percent of African-Americans say they don't know, according to the survey.

Obama's Campaign-Season Christianity.  Barack Obama threw his mom under the parish van on Tuesday [9/28/2010], describing her as formlessly "spiritual" while casting himself as the self-made convert.  "I am a Christian by choice," he said at a campaign event in New Mexico this week.  In 2007, he said the opposite:  that he became a Christian through his mother.  "My mother was a Christian from Kansas ... I was raised by my mother.  So, I've always been a Christian," he told a voter who had inquired about his Islamic background.  The woman at the campaign stop in New Mexico on Tuesday [9/28/2010] asked him to explain why he is a Christian and coupled it with another one about his support for abortion rights.  The sequence of questions proved awkward, with the answer to the latter question rendering his answer to the first one meaningless.

Obamas wanted to celebrate Diwali in India.  Barack Obama, who became the first US president to personally celebrate Diwali in the historic East Room in 2009, wanted to "specifically" celebrate the festival of lights with Indians, the White House has said.  "He (Obama) specifically wanted to have an opportunity to celebrate Diwali and to do so with the Indian people, getting beyond simply his official business," Jeff Bader, Senior Director for Asia Affairs at the National Security Council, White House, said.

The Editor says... Call me a hayseed, but I had never heard of Diwali.  Apparently it is a five-day festival that is important to Hinduism, Sikhism and Jainism.  And evidently it is important to Mr. and Mrs. Obama as well.

More about Obama's multi-million-dollar trip to India.

Watch your religious language, Mr. President.  Sometimes it seems like President Obama just can't catch a break, from the long-faltering economy to the Gulf oil well explosion.  But some problems are just of his own making.  Nowhere is this more clear than in his clumsy use of religious language.  The president cannot stop stumbling over the religious maxims that have defined us as a nation.

The Editor says... That's because Obama is a Christian in name only.  The evidence is all over this page.  On matters of theology and American religious history, he is so chronically ignorant (or badly misinformed) that he thought TUCC was a church!

President Obama Attends Contemporary Church Service in Hawaii.  [Scroll down]  His religion has been a public relations struggle for this White House. ... There was a poll out earlier this year stating that nearly 18 percent of Americans think he's a Muslim, which was actually an increase from previous surveys.  Here's a list of the times the president has attended church services publicly...

The Obamas attend church service in Hawaii.  President Barack Obama and his family took a break from their Hawaiian vacation to attend Sunday church services, a rare occurrence for a president who prefers to worship in private.

The Editor says... When someone goes to church and that event is so unusual as to be headline news, that person is a stranger to the church.  But here's something he's really enthusiastic about...

Obama extends Kwanzaa greetings.  President Obama and the first lady sent out Kwanzaa greetings Sunday on the first day of the seven-day celebration.  "Michelle and I extend our warmest thoughts and wishes to all those who are celebrating Kwanzaa this holiday season," Obama said in a statement.  "Today is the first of a joyful seven-day celebration of African American culture and heritage."

Obama Versus Reagan.  This year, the president's speechwriters are trying to figure out how to refer enough to the birth of Christ in his Christmas addresses that others don't think he's a Muslim, but not smack of being so Christian that they alienate the president's progressive, Islamic and atheistic base.  Though their speech attempts started better this December than last, both of this year's attempts ended up neutering the soul of Christmas.

President goes to church in Kaneohe.  President Barack Obama, his family and friends went to church at Marine Corps Base Hawaii on the day after Christmas.  The first family arrived at a chapel at Marine Corps Base Hawaii midmorning for a multidenominational service.  The Obamas were greeted by clapping parishioners and a band playing "Joy to the World" as they were led to their seats in the front row. ... The Obamas also issued a statement yesterday [12/26/2010] recognizing observers of Kwanzaa.

The Editor says... Imagine the watered-down, noncommittal sermon are you likely to hear at a "multidenominational service."  It's probably a lot like attending the TUCC, where they'll say whatever they think you want to hear.  The President's equally (or more) enthusiastic recognition of Kwanzaa negates any credence of his Christianity, in my opinion.  Everything he says or does is motivated by political gain.

We Must Challenge Obama Before He Breaks the United States.  We have all heard how narcissistic Barack Obama really is and how he does not like to take orders from anybody but, presumably, Allah his Muslim deity.  (Christian?  Don't make me laugh.)

Obama:  2010 in Faith.  Obama has said that he has not joined a Washington church because it would be too "disruptive" to the services.  Being disruptive apparently did not concern him during his lavish Christmas vacation in Hawaii, however.  According to a MailOnline article, to visit childhood friend Bobby Titcomb's beachfront house, a "10-vehicle convoy drove the president and wife Michelle from his rental property in Kailua, across highways cleared of traffic and through a military community."

Heather has two passports.  The Obama administration's war on traditional values is picking up steam.  Just three days before Christmas, the State Department buried an announcement that "mother" and "father" were being banished from the bureaucratic lexicon.  In their place, politically correct terms intended to appeal to the vanity of homosexual activists will be inserted.  Application forms for documents such as passports will use "parent one" and "parent two" or "parent A" and "parent B" instead of supposedly obsolete concepts like mother and father. ... Obama administration officials are all in favor of breaking down the distinctions between men and women and any role they might play in society.

Obamas attend church in Washington.  President Barack Obama publicly attended church on Sunday [1/16/2011], an unusual move for a president who is accustomed to attending Sunday services at a private chapel at Camp David.  Obama and his family attended services at Washington's Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church, about six blocks from the White House, which describes itself as the "National Cathedral" of African Methodism.  The service commemorated the 25th anniversary of the national holiday honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a day before the holiday itself.

The Editor says... The African Methodist Episcopal Church was founded in 1816 from several black Methodist congregations in the mid-Atlantic area that wanted independence from white Methodists.  That sounds to me like the description of a black separatist (if not racist) organization much like the TUCC.

Obamas make rare church visit.  [Scroll down]  Michelle Obama received more applause than her husband when the first family's arrival was announced in church.  She was even treated to a round of "Happy Birthday."  She turns 47 on Monday.

The Editor says... How indecorous!  A round of applause and a chorus of "Happy Birthday."  Apparently the Obamas go to church not to worship, but to be worshipped.

Prayer and Pancakes with Barack.  At the prayer breakfast Barack addressed the growing belief that he is a Muslim and maintained that despite hosting annual Iftar dinners and regularly attending Sunday morning church services on the Interior Department basketball court, Christianity is a "sustaining force" in his largely secular life.

Obama's Prayer Breakfast Knuckleball.  [Scroll down]  At the Prayer Breakfast, Obama shifted the focus from his earthly father to his heavenly one.  He did not, however, present his sudden enthusiasm for Jesus Christ as a change of heart, but rather as a sharing of what had been in his heart all along.  Unfortunately, nothing he has ever said or written supports this.  In Dreams, Obama talks about first attending Jeremiah Wright's Chicago church in 1988, but he speaks of Jesus only as someone other people embrace.  He refers on one occasion to "Will's Jesus."  On another occasion, a friend says to him, "We love you, man.  Jesus loves you!"  But Obama himself has nothing to say about Jesus.

Bill Maher Says He Doesn't Think Obama Is A Christian.  On tonight's [2/11/2011] Real Time, in the process of arguing that Obama's not really a centrist politically, Maher also revealed that he doesn't think Obama's actually Christian, either, but rather a secular humanist.

Hint of politics creeps in to rare Obama church appearance.  Barack Obama is not shy about discussing his Christian faith, but the U.S. president and his family do not attend church regularly in Washington.  So a presidential visit is a rare happening among the city's churches, and Easter is one Sunday when one regularly occurs.

Obama attends Easter service at historic church.  President Barack Obama and his family attended Easter services Sunday [4/24/2011] at a Washington church founded in 1863 by freed slaves.

The Editor says... It appears that President Obama only goes to church when it will benefit him politically, and on those rare occasions, it's almost always an all-black church, much like his old favorite, the TUCC.

Obama's Church Choice For Easter Based On Race?  It may sound a little callous and abrasive to even be suspicious of Obama's choice of churches for Easter Sunday 2011, but given the climate of the media bias so overwhelmingly in favor of casting Obama in the best light possible, the regular media professionals can't be trusted to actually do some basic reporting. ... While this pastor is a little less flamboyant than Jeremiah Wright in both tone and wardrobe, the evidence is in:  Obama prefers and actively seeks out these churches, race is our President's primary motivation on a variety of decisions, and the media will actively provide cover for minority racists as long as it fits their narrative.

Obama goes to church so others may worship him. What Next — the Potomac River running red with blood?  On Easter morning 2011, the President attended Resurrection Day services at Shiloh Baptist Church.  As the President and his family entered the sanctuary, the quartet was greeted with applause and a choir singing "Total Praise."  Dr. Wallace Smith, the church's pastor, reminded the congregants, "This is a place of worship," which is exactly what appeared to be going on.

Yesterday was Sunday: Where was your Commander-in-Chief?  [Hint:]  At any given moment Obama is either organizing, Alinsky'izing, or golfing.

Obama wants no part of the National Day of Prayer, but he certainly has time for this: Obama Praises Homosexual 'Spouses' in Gay Gathering at White House.  At the urging of homosexuals gathered at the White House on Wednesday [6/29/2011], President Barack Obama praised gay "spouses" in his speech marking lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender "Pride Month."

First family attends church service.  President Barack Obama took his family to services on Sunday [7/17/2011], walking out of the White House and to a nearby church frequented by presidents.

Jeremiah Wright is the tiny tip of Obama's spiritual iceberg.  It wasn't the sermon that caught me off guard; I was prepared for that.  I had watched video of Wright, giving five of his fiery sermons.  The thing that really got me to thinking, reading and searching for answers was the church bookstore.  Having been a practicing Christian for more than 40 years now, and a practicing Catholic for 26 of those years, I have visited perhaps 100 various Christian bookstores, both Protestant and Catholic.  In all of those places, one thing tied together the books for sale:  Christianity.  Not so in Obama's church bookstore.

More about the TUCC.

Barack Hussein Obama is a Fraud.  Obama is not a Christian.  I do not what his true faith, if any, is.  I do know he is a hypocrite and a liar. ... I do not consider it Christian to abort and kill unborn babies.  It certainly is not Christian to kill babies after they have survived an abortion and are born alive.  Obama continually voted to do this very thing when he was in the Illinois legislature.

Obama says homosexuality is moral.  Sen. Obama released a statement Thursday [3/15/2007], saying, "I do not agree with General Pace that homosexuality is immoral."

Obama's priorities are not those of a Christian. Obama's war on decency:  [Scroll down]  The second news item was Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's speech in Geneva on Tuesday [12/6/2011], announcing that American taxpayers will be paying for homosexual activism around the world through a $3 million Global Equality Fund.  That's right.  In a time when the United States is facing massive debt, plus a rising China and militant Islam, we're going to use foreign aid money to promote "gay rights" to the world.

LA Times: 'Obama Has Been a Regular Church-goer For Decades'.  Over at PJ Media's Tatler section, Roger Simon caught Alana Semuels at the Los Angeles Times in what has to be a lead candidate for the Non-Eric Holder howler of the day. ... Simon goes on to cite a Time Magazine item from December 2009, i.e., eleven months into Obama's presidency, called "No Church-Going Christmas for the First Family," in which Amy Sullivan wrote that "The Obamas have attended Sunday services in Washington three times this year."  To understate, most pastors wouldn't call a congregation member who has shown up three times in eleven months a "regular."

The First Family Goes to Church.  Holding hands and smiling despite the 37 degree temperatures, the President Obama and his family walked across the street from the White House to St. John's Episcopal Church today to attend the 11 a.m. service.

Must Be an Election Season: Obama's Walk to Church.  You could probably count on one time the visits the Obama's have made to church this year.  I suspect they'll be making a more obvious show of it in the next 10 months.  This is Obama's response to Rick Perry's last campaign ad.

Gay Couple Receives Obama Congratulations on Wedding.  Matt Katz and Aaron Lafrenz of Brooklyn, N.Y., were surprised to receive a letter from President Barack Obama congratulating them on their marriage.

Obama's Faith Problem.  There has been much ink spilled over President Obama's belief in God (or lack thereof), in the strength of his faith, in questioning what his faith is (Christian, Muslim, other ?), and wondering what church he attends/ will attend.  After almost three years, Americans do not yet have an answer to those questions.  Nor are they likely to since Obama's calculating use of the clergy and religion is usually timed to garner a boost in the polls.

Obamas Visit Black Church Ahead of Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday.  President Barack Obama and his family attended church services on Sunday, continuing their custom of prayer on each Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.  The family does not go to church frequently, but has traditionally spent the holiday occasion at historically black places of worship.  This year, President Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and daughters Sasha and Malia visited the Zion Baptist Church in Washington for the first time.  Founded in the 1860s, the congregation's historical commission is dedicated to preserving the history of black Christian culture in the District of Columbia.

Obamas celebrate MLK's birthday at worship service.  President Barack Obama and his family have celebrated Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday at morning worship service.

Obama Heads to Church — Again.  President Obama and his family headed out to church this morning [1/15/2012] for the third time in a month, the latest sign that the president may be using religion to boost his image as the campaign heats up.  Obama has rarely gone to church since becoming president.

First Family Starting to Attend Church Again.  I hate to be a cynic, but there does seem to be something fortuitous about the timing.  The Obamas have rarely spend Sundays worshipping since moving into the White House, but this one marks the third in a month where they have attended service — just in time for election season.

Like many leftists, President Obama has deep contempt for Christianity and democracy. Obama threatens religious liberty.  Mr. Obama is the most radical president in our history.  He is spearheading a liberal social revolution, not just an economic one.  He supported partial-birth abortion — the heinous procedure of killing babies just before they are to be delivered.  His administration refuses to uphold the Defense of Marriage Act.  He has enabled homosexuals to serve openly in the military, transforming the armed forces into a vast laboratory for social engineering.  His signature legislation, Obamacare, allows for the federal funding of abortion.  Hence, Christians will be forced to have their tax dollars subsidize the mass murder of unborn children — a direct attack on their most basic religious tenets.  He is making Christians complicit in infanticide.

Obamination.  [President Obama] is the first U.S. president in my memory to issue a statement in favor of abortion on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.  Of all the cherished utterances of our beloved leader the last three years, perhaps none is so divisive and offensive as ... his tribute to the judicial fiat that has resulted in the deaths of more than 40 million Americans, and a testament to his twisted views.

Obama plays his Catholic allies for fools.  Both radicalism and maliciousness are at work in Obama's decision — an edict delivered with a sneer.  It is the most transparently anti-Catholic maneuver by the federal government since the Blaine Amendment was proposed in 1875 — a measure designed to diminish public tolerance of Romanism, then regarded as foreign, authoritarian and illiberal.  Modern liberalism has progressed to the point of adopting the attitudes and methods of 19th-century Republican nativists.  The implications of Obama's choice will take years to sort through.

Is Barack Obama a Red Letter Christian?  Many evangelicals seem taken with Barack Obama.  Tired of the Religious Right and seeking a new tone in Washington, they see in this untested, enigmatic senator a chance for real change.  And indeed he is congenial and a breath of fresh air when compared with the grasping Clinton dynasty.  Many Bible-believers seem ready to look the other way with Obama, despite his extremely liberal voting record (including unfettered backing of abortion), because he appears to be a genuine person they can work with.  I wonder how his latest, religiously based comments might change this.  The other day Obama reiterated his support for civil unions for homosexuals.

Make Way for 'Saint Obama the Pious'.  Some of the true believers at this morning's prayer breakfast must have all but fallen off their chairs when they heard the new Sermon from the Mount from a politician who has admitted he gets his prayer reminders via his Blackberry. ... The same Obama, who is forcing abortion on the Roman Catholic Church, today claims he "often falls to his knees in prayer", and emphasized his religious values in determining where to lead the country.

Santorum: Obama Most Anti-Religion President in History.  President Barack Obama uses his faith "as a convenience" when it serves him, while at the same time being the most anti-religion president in history, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum charged in an exclusive Newsmax interview. ... "Over the last few weeks, he has done more to assault religion in this country than any president, certainly in recent history, maybe even in history," said Santorum.

Democrat Party Is Losing Christian Voters in Droves.  Last week Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan lashed out at the Obama Administration for forcing religious organizations to go out into the marketplace and buy a product that violates their conscience.  New Obama regulations will force Christian organizations to provide free contraceptives, sterilizations and abortion drugs to workers even though this violates Catholic Church teaching.  The new rules are so strict that most Catholic institutions will not qualify for an exemption.  This week the military is telling Catholic Chaplains what they can and cannot say about the Obama Administration.  These are just the latest examples of Obama's war on Christians.

The Audacity of Obama's Secularism:  Not wanting to repeat John Kerry's electoral debacle — which even Nancy Pelosi attributed to the leaden senator's undisguised secularism — Obama worked hard to con the religious into voting for him in 2008.  He "valued" religion, particularly the votes of the religious.  On his campaign web page, "people of faith" enjoyed their own special slot, a mere two tabs down from the "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community."

Obama and the Dictatorship of Relativism.  Alas, it's not a question of the administration being tragically "tone deaf," as one American Jesuit claimed, to specifically Catholic concerns.  Nor is the bedrock of President Obama's position, in the end, a commitment to "women's health."  Outside the ghoulish world of Planned Parenthood, pregnancy does not qualify as a disease.  A fertile womb is no threat to human life.

When Obama Voted For Infanticide.  Obama's abortion extremism is such that, as a state legislator, he opposed protection for — I'll use his words here — "that fetus, or child — however way you want to say describe it" when, contrary to the wishes of the women involved and their abortionists, there was "movement or some indication that, in fact, they're not just coming out limp and dead."  Babies were inconveniently being born alive, self-styled health-care providers carted them off to utility rooms where they would be left to die.  That is infanticide, plain and simple.  In Illinois, people tried to stop this barbarism by supporting "born alive" legislation.  Barack Obama fought them all the way.

Battle lines are drawn over whether Obama is waging a war on religion.  President Obama's public clash with U.S. Catholic bishops in recent weeks over the issue of health insurance coverage for birth-control services has ignited a wider debate over whether the administration's policies such as gay marriage, abortion and employment-discrimination laws are running roughshod over religious freedom.

Remember When Obama Voted for Infanticide?.  With the pro-life/pro-choice argument being in the news cycle for the past few weeks, Newt Gingrich was right on point tonight [2/22/2012] when he brought up President Obama's pro-abortion, pro-infanticide voting record that the media ignored during his presidential campaign in 2008.  As a state senator, Obama voted against legislation, four times in total, that protects babies who surviveabortion procedures.  His no vote meant he was in support of legally allowing people to leave baby abortion survivors to die on the operating table instead of giving them care.

Obama's Marxist Faith Is Legitimate Campaign Issue.  BLT [Black Liberation Theology], in fact, is the Rosetta stone for understanding Obama and his agenda, decoding his rhetoric, and divining where he plans to take this country.  Here is a primer:
  •   The doctrine is an explicitly Marxist interpretation of the Bible whose aim is to stir up class and race hatred.
  •   BLT combines the teachings of Christ with those of Marx to justify the overthrow of the capitalist system.
  •   It does not believe the Bible is inerrant.  Hence, it can be, as Obama put it, "modified to accommodate modern life."
  •   BLT ignores the epistles of Paul and the other apostles since they accept the institution of slavery that existed at the time.
  •   As professor James Cone, the father of BLT, once explained it, "Black theology seeks to prepare all nonwhites for revolutionary action."

President Obama's Theology: Is It Phony?  Liberal politicians rarely cite Bible verses that teach that poverty can be the fault of the individual, that governments are often arrogant and ungodly, that government's power should be limited, that God created marriage for one man and one woman, or that God rejects abortion and homosexuality.  You will rarely hear a liberal politician invoke a Bible passage when speaking of the personal morality required of a free people.  Instead, their interpretation of the Bible always seems to require the government to assume more power — godlike power.

The Left's War on Christianity.  Liberalism is so unrelentingly hostile to Christianity that it's virtually impossible to be both a devout Christian and a devout liberal at the same time.  To be a liberal Christian means you either have to completely gut your religious beliefs to make them compatible with your political inclinations or alternately, you have to spend your days cowering with your eyes down while your fellow liberals demean, smear, and mock everything you should hold dear.

Obamas attend neighborhood church.  President Obama briefly greeted onlookers Sunday [3/18/2012] outside a Washington church where he and his family attended late-morning services.

Obamas Attend Church — Participate in Holy Communion — at St. John's Episcopal.  President Barack Obama attended service at a historic church that is steps away from the White House and often frequented by sitting presidents.

The Editor says... Apparently the Sunday photo-op was a red herring designed to draw attention away from this.

The First Family Attend Sunday Service Sans Malia .  The Obamas attended Church one member short on Sunday as Malia, 13, is on Spring Break in Oxaca, Mexico.

Obama and People of Faith.  In his hubris and haste, the president has tipped his hand, showing all Americans of faith just where their free exercise of religion stands in Obama's imperious new world.

President Obama, his 'evolving' stance on gay marriage, and the 2012 campaign.  Interviews with gay rights advocates and people close to Obama's campaign suggest it is no longer a matter of if, but when the President publicly voices his support.

Obama Misquotes Bible on Wealth Redistribution.  Liberals/Progressives/Democrats say the Bible is off-limits when it addresses the subject of homosexuality, homosexual marriage, abortion, or any issue liberals favor but the Bible condemns.  But it's permitted to be used when wealth-redistribution is being discussed.  The only problem is that when President Barack Hussein Obama quoted from the Bible, he both took his quotation out of context and got it wrong.

The American separation of church and state is a myth — just ask Barack Obama.  [Quoting President Obama:]  "When I talk about making sure insurance companies aren't discriminating against those who are already sick .... I also do it because ... I believe in God's command to 'love thy neighbor as thyself.'"

The Editor says... I suspect that a great number of insurance agents and real estate brokers attend churches regularly, just to meet potential clients.  Similarly, I believe that Barack Obams's primary motivation to attend church — or to occasionally associate with nominal Christians — is either to advance the liberal tax-and-spend socialist Democrat agenda, or to sanitize and legitimize the baby-killing Democrat platform, or to place Barack Obama at the center of attention.  Moreover, I suspect that Barack Obama can quote far more extensively and accurately from the Koran than from the Bible.

America's Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President.  Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years.  So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian.  But that, too, would be inaccurate.  He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular.  So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical.  And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor.  In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.

Most 'biblically hostile' president ever is ...  As if the Obama administration's mandate that Catholic employers — against church doctrine — pay for their employees' birth control wasn't outrage enough to America's religious faithful ... Now faith and American freedom historian David Barton of WallBuilders has drafted a documented list of 50 anti-Christian and anti-Jewish actions Obama has taken since assuming office, leading Barton to conclude Barack Obama is actually "America's most biblically hostile U. S. president."

Barton Calls Obama 'America's Most Biblically-Hostile U.S. President'.  Is President Barack Obama America's most "Biblically-hostile U.S. president?"  This is the label that conservative historian David Barton has given Obama, as the nation continues its debate over the president's controversial contraceptive mandate.  But for Barton, the situation transcends the current discussion about religious freedom and the Catholic Church, as the frequent guest on Glenn Beck's radio and television shows develops his provocative argument in detail.

Obama: Michelle influenced gay marriage decision.  First Lady Michelle Obama contributed to the president making his long-delayed declaration of support for gay marriage, which he positioned as an outgrowth of his Christian faith.

Franklin Graham: Obama is shaking his fist at God.  In another provocative comment aimed at Barack Obama, evangelist Franklin Graham on Thursday accused the president of having "shaken his fist" at God by changing his position on same-sex marriage.  "It grieves me that our president would now affirm same-sex marriage, though I believe it grieves God even more," Graham said in a prepared statement.  "This is a sad day for America.  May God help us."

Obama's wicked marriage proposal.  It's one thing to be a hypocrite, which Mr. Obama has been for years.  Since he began pretending to oppose the redefinition of marriage but refusing to defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act while homosexualizing the military.  It's quite another thing, however, to invoke Christ when doing the devil's work.  Forget the voters.  Mr. Obama's going to have to answer to God for this one. [...] With this wicked move, Mr. Obama is insisting that we bow down and worship the false idol of sexual anarchy.  That's what his wealthy supporters in Hollywood demand.

President Obama cashing in on gay marriage stance, selling LGBT merchandise.  President Obama is banking on his endorsement of gay marriage to fill his campaign coffers.  His team is selling a slew of LGBT merchandise on BarackObama.com, just days after his historic backing of same-sex couples tying the knot.

Sen. Rand Paul on Obama: 'What Version of the Bible is He Reading?'  Speaking Saturday night [5/12/2012] at an event sponsored by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky expressed surprise that President Barack Obama would say that his support for same-sex marriage was rooted in the Bible.  "What version of the Bible is he reading?" Paul said.

Obama and the Marxist/Communist View of Marriage and Abortion.  [Scroll down]  As to President Obama, he is far and away the most radical supporter of abortion ever to step in the White House.  This audience needs no proof of that, from Obama forcing all taxpayers to fund abortion drugs (with no religious exemption), to fund Planned Parenthood, to fund embryonic research, and on and on.  Even before all of that, this was a man who as U.S. senator had co-sponsored the Freedom of Choice Act, the most extreme piece of pro-abortion legislation ever in America; who in a 2007 speech to Planned Parenthood hailed America's largest abortion provider as a "safety net"; and who as a state senator in Illinois repeatedly refused to provide mandatory health care for babies who somehow survived abortion procedures.  (These babies apparently were not part of Obama's vision for mandatory/universal health care.)

President Barack Obama's Pro-Abortion Record.  [This] is a compilation of bill signings, speeches, appointments and other actions that President Barack Obama has engaged in that have promoted abortion before and during his presidency.  While Obama has promised to reduce abortions and some of his supporters believe that will happen, this long list proves his only agenda is promoting more abortions.

Mystery Religion: Mr. Obama's Contradictory Conversions to Christianity.  [Scroll down]  Mr. Obama has adhered to two contradictory time frames as to when he converted to Christianity, and no matter which time frame one considers accepting, one encounters facts that make accepting the time frame very challenging for a rational person.  Therefore, one is rational to conclude that Mr. Obama's true relationship to religion, if indeed he has one, is, like so much else about him, a mystery.

Jealous God Obama Attacks Rival Religions.  The University of Notre Dame conferred an honorary doctorate on Obama, despite his repeated, enthusiastic votes for infanticide.  At Obama's insistence, Georgetown agreed to cover up its cross when he spoke there, so its rival sanctity would not distract from Dear Leader's divinity.

Obama Keeps on Conning America.  Obama deceived millions to win the White House.  All the obvious clues into the true nature of the first black presidential candidate were ignored by the media.  Voters were duped into believing Obama when he presented himself as a moderate, a messiah, "the one we have been waiting for." [...] Barack Hussein Obama is not presidential, nor is he a moderate — far from either, in fact.  This man is a far-left, radical, anti-America, plain-old-Chicago-thug politician.  Obama is the most anti-Christian president in American history.

Phyllis Schlafly: For Obama, 'no higher power' than government.  Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly told a group of reporters at the Heritage Foundation Tuesday [7/24/2012] that President Barack Obama believes that loyalty to government trumps even loyalty to God.  She cited the mandates set forth by the Affordable Care Act and the repeal of the military's 'don't ask, don't tell' policy as two examples of where she said the president has put government ahead of the institution of religion.  "He seems to want to get rid of religion in any public place — a public school, or a public institution — and to keep it behind the four walls of your own church," Schlafly said.

Americans losing faith that Obama is Christian.  [Scroll down]  No matter what he does or says there are still some people out there that believe Obama is Muslim.  According to a poll conducted by The Pew Research Center, 49 percent of Americans do believe the president follows Christianity, while 17 percent are convinced he is Muslim.  Only 26 percent of those who participated in the survey said they are comfortable with Obama's alleged Muslim faith, compared to a whopping 65 percent who say they are uncomfortable.

The Editor says... Bias alert!  This is another attempt by the news media to paint Obama as the victim of irrational bigotry.  "No matter what he does or says", people just refuse to believe his sincerety.  Really?  Show me examples of what Obama has done or said that might lead a person to believe he is a Christian, and I will show you twice as many anecdotes that indicate he's a Muslim.

Baptists vs. Sebelius.  Last week, the Obama administration did it again.  In a new bulletin, the Department of Health and Human Services implied that there are more faith-based entities who can apply for a "safe harbor" from its controversial "contraception" mandate.  "Every time the administration opens its mouth it changes its rules to attack religious freedom in a different way," Matt Bowman, a lawyer with Alliance Defending Freedom says of the bulletin.  "Washington bureaucrats have no business continually picking and choosing what faith is and who is allowed to practice faith," he continues.

Obama's dark side.  At the root of liberalism's empty sentiments is the reality that the state can't control an uncertain world and solve all of our problems.  At some point, a higher power comes into play.  That's why our money has "In God We Trust" stamped on it.  Instead of embracing the moral foundation of America, the Obama government is pursuing all-out religious persecution.  The most direct threats at the moment are the provisions in Obamacare that force religious institutions to provide abortion, contraception and other services against the dictates of their faith.

Barack Obama's Idea of Staying in the Word and Living Like Jesus.  On the President's part, spiritual goals are always commendable.  Unfortunately, his self-created walk of faith often leads him and those he influences into extremely dark places.  Moreover, the President accepts and rejects Scripture according to personal moral preferences.  He dissects God's Word and picks and chooses according to which verses he can use and manipulate to uphold reprobate liberal ideology.

The First Lady's Curious Theology.  The theology of the Bible makes two things very clear.  One is that angels are superior in every way to man, the other is that no angel in Old or New Testament ever allowed themselves to be worshipped.  Most of them claimed to be messengers or servants of the Lord and abruptly halted any attempt to worship them.  No Christian who has seen these examples would suspend the lessons taught by these examples and then worship a man, even if he is a sitting U.S. President.  In the one instance where a crowd was allowed to worship an orator after he delivered a speech, that orator (Herod) was stricken by an angel of the Lord and fell down dead.

The Editor says... Barack Obama calls himself a Christian, but if that were true, he would have heard of Herod's story long ago, and would not put himself in the same position.

Obama versus Jesus: Black Christians Must Decide.  A poll claims that Romney will receive zero percent of the black vote.  Well, if the poll proves correct, it means that a vast majority of black voters are ignorant of the truth... or else they're racist.  Black Christians who vote for Obama knowing his crimes against Christianity and biblical principles have chosen to worship the idol of racial loyalty over their discipleship to Jesus Christ.  Pure and simple. [...] Incredibly, some blacks have completely forsaken their Christianity for Obama.  A fellow PK (preacher's kid) said her parents recently changed their stance on same-sex marriage in support of their black president.  I find this remarkable.

Jeremiah Wright can sink Obama.  [Scroll down]  Furthermore, Mr. Wright says Mr. Obama possessed an "Islamic background" and despite his conversion to Christianity has never abandoned his Muslim roots.  In short, Mr. Wright appears to be confirming what I have argued for years:  Mr. Obama is a cultural Muslim whose Christianity is deeply tied to black liberation theology — the belief that America and the West have an evil, imperialist civilization bent on oppressing the Third World.

Jeremiah Wright: I "Made It Comfortable" For Obama to Accept Christianity Without Having to Renounce Islam.  In a shocking interview yesterday [5/14/2012] on the Sean Hannity Radio Show, author Ed Klein said Barack Obama's former pastor helped Obama accept Christianity without having to renounce Islam.

Jeremiah Wright: Obama never renounced Islam.  Sean Hannity interviews Ed Klein.

Alleged new Recordings of Jeremiah Wright cast doubt on Obama's Christianity.  In 2008, video recordings of Jeremiah Wright's sermons came closer than anything else to derailing Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Now, four years later, there appears to be audio recordings of Wright that may be damaging to Obama as well.  Those recordings, allegedly in the possession of author Edward Klein, consist of Wright telling Klein some unflattering things, to include charges that Obama attempted to silence Wright in 2008. [...] If Klein's claim is true, perhaps the best we can say about the president is that he is a 'Chrislamist,' which means he is not a Christian.  At worst, the president is feigning Christianity for political expediency so that he can remain a Muslim.

Seriously? Obama Tells Time: Like Mitt, I Take My Faith Seriously.  Jaws should drop as Obama said he appreciates Romney's commitment to participating in church, just as Obama... does?  He likes that Romney "walks the walk," and no one questions if Obama does a lot more walking on the golf course than at church.

The President's Pitch to People of Faith.  In 2008, Barack Obama stole a chunk of religious voters from the GOP by clothing his secularist and socialist positions in quasi-religious garb.  "People of faith" received their own slot on his campaign web site, a mere two tabs down from the "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community."  Obama "valued" the religious, as he put it.  He particularly valued their votes.  Obama has long believed in the separation of church and state but not in the separation of bogus religiosity from winning.

Redistribution: Obama's Religion?  If there was ever any doubt in anyone's mind that Barack Obama was a socialist at heart, then listen to his own words in an interview with Marc Strassman at Loyola University in 1995, where he speaks specifically of the "collective" and "democracy with a small d" and how "It's not popular to say that and believe in a common good today."  Interestingly, regarding his collectivism ideology, Obama says, "That's the core of my faith."
[Emphasis added.]
The Editor says... If Obama were a Christian, Jesus Christ would be at the core of his faith — not self-serving, leftist, baby-killing politics.  The core of Obama's faith appears to be about as solid as the core of a Hostess Ding Dong.

Obama's Legacy on Black America.  In my hotel room, I caught an interview with First Lady Michelle Obama on Lift Every Voice, a faith-based program on BET (Black Entertainment Television).  I was amazed at how the black host and program producers portrayed Mrs. Obama and her husband as the couple they want to believe them to be — that is, strongly committed Christians.  In reality, Obama is the most anti-Christian president in U.S. history.

Top Ten Reasons the 2007 Obama Video Matters in 2012.  [#7]  At the 19:20 mark we learn that the Christian Obama doesn't know the Lord's Prayer.  That's news.

Four Reasons Black Christians Should Not Vote for Obama.  Outspoken and passionate in his faith, Maryland Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr. tells it like it is.  Speaking to his congregation last Sunday in Baltimore, the outspoken man of faith declared his reasons for opposing the re-election of Barack Obama this November 6th.  In fact, he offered four compelling reasons to make a stand against the first black president that may resonate strongly in the black Christian community.

Blacks should vote God's way — against Obama.  [Scroll down]  Mr. Obama has done very little, if anything, to help the black community.  In fact, he has turned his back on the very values that are the moral backbone of the black community.  The damage to natural marriage and family that he is attempting to inflict is going to be devastating to black Americans.

Obama endorses gay marriage in 3 states.  President Barack Obama on Thursday [10/25/2012] endorsed state ballot initiatives to legalise same-sex marriage in Washington state, Maryland and Maine as he sought to galvanise gay and lesbian enthusiasm for his re-election bid.

Barack Obama is a Liar.  Legend has it that our first president said, "I cannot tell a lie," but, being only human, G.W. no doubt could and certainly did, at some point.  A liar, however, is someone who lives and breathes the lie; someone who specializes in the art of artifice; someone to whom lying is his first recourse, not his last.  Such a man is Barack Obama.  In four years, Obama has gone from "change you can believe in" to a man you simply cannot believe.

Obama, daughters head to church.  President Obama attended church Sunday morning [10/28/2012] with his two daughters, with a visit to a federal disaster relief agency scheduled for later in the day.  According to pool reports, Obama was joined at St. John's Episcopal Church, a short walk from the White House, by his daughters, Malia and Sasha, and their godmother, Kaye Wilson.  The first lady, Michelle Obama, was unable to join her family at church because she was preparing for campaign travel, according to a White House official.

The Editor says... I guess that shows what's really important to Mrs. Obama.

Black preacher spreads the Word ... against Obama.  "We've got a sitting president who supports same-sex marriage, who never met an abortion law he didn't love," [Rev. Patrick] Wooden preached.  "Our definition of marriage doesn't come from the president or the Constitution.  We get our definition of marriage from the creator," he thundered, and a chorus of "amens" and applause pealed through the cavernous church.

Obama: A Man Without a Conscience.  For a long time, intrepid critics of Barack Obama have described him, accurately, as a pathological liar.  The Benghazi affair must force even the most circumspect among us to recognize that the problem is even more serious:  the president of the United States has no conscience.

Obama's Cold Heart.  President Barack Obama looks so warm and friendly on the podium.  In Washington he's known as someone who actually dislikes people in person.  He's possibly the only politician in the world who plays golf only with his aides. [...] Obama's personal coldness and arrogance are in complete contrast with his media image of the candidate who empathizes with ordinary people.  In reality, he can't even offer human warmth to grieving parents.

Obama Appeases Muslims, Offends Catholics.  While Obama thinks we should bend over backwards for Islamism to practice whatever 7th century idiocy it imposes, including female mutilation and Sharia Law, which judges the testimony of a woman half as worthy as that of a man, he imposes policy that offends and curtails the ability of Catholics to practice their religion as they see fit.

Who Is Barack Hussein Obama? And What Is He Really Up To?  Why do Obama's words seldom match his actions?  Why do we find, time after time, that Obama has lied to us, and that the American people face catastrophic long-term consequences as a result?

Turning a political decision into your spiritual mandate.  Yesterday, for the second time in four years, the majority of Americans decided in favor of Obama despite the vocal and visible moral objections made by many Christians of all denominations.  I have no doubt that many people who profess to be Christians cast their vote to reelect Barack Hussein Obama, somehow justifying their vote over any moral or ethical concerns residing in their spirit.  How is this possible?

Barack Obama visits Buddhist temple in Thailand.  The President and Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, walked around a golden statue of a sitting Buddha on a tour led by the Abbot of the monastery wearing saffron robes.  The complex is a sprawling display of buildings with colourful spires, gardens and waterfalls.  Thais viewed his trip to Wat Pho as an act of respect.
Obama participates in pagan rituals. Obama starts his own Buddhist tradition.  President Obama visited a 2,000 year old Buddhist pagoda in Burma, where he put his own spin on a traditional ritual of bathing a Buddha statue.  The Shwedagon pagoda contains individual buddhas that "correspond to the day you were born," the pool report explains.
Obama asks monk for prayer on fiscal cliff.  "We're working on this budget, we're going to need a lot of prayer for that," Mr. Obama told a monk while touring the Wat Pho Royal Monastery.  Later, at a joint press conference with Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, the president tried to explain his quip.  "I always believe in prayer," Mr. Obama said.  "If a Buddhist monk is wishing me well, I'm going to take whatever good vibes he can give me to try to deal with some challenges back home.  I'm confident that we can get our fiscal situation dealt with."
Barack Obama does not appear to know the difference or make any distinction between the prayers or "good vibes" of a Bhuddist and the prayers of a Christian.
White House Thanksgiving ceremony: Barack Obama's open mockery of the Sign of the Cross.  Obama, who is left-handed, made the sign of the cross with his left hand, which out of respect for the centuries-long Christian practice, no one ever does. [...] Obama departed from the usual "presidential pardon" granting the turkey a "special dispensation" in words as he twice made his left-handed Sign of the Cross.  There were lots of giggles from the two Obama daughters and lots of gobbling from the turkey recorded during the ceremony now on YouTube.
President-for-Life, King of the World paving the way for Messiahship.  No true Christian — including a reelected president — would ever allow the term "Our Lord and Savior" or a painting of himself smirking from Christ's crucifix to stand.  But there thus far has been no comment from the White House to try to set the record straight.
It takes 54 trees to make a Merry Marxist Christmas.  In this, the 'Year of the Big Gloat' it's a $4-million Hawaiian taxpayer-paid, 20-day vacation and 54 'Christmas' trees, one-upmanship on George W's last 27 Christmas trees in 2008. [...] The 54 trees decked out for this year's celebration can't be Christmas trees.  The Obamas, who claim they do not give their daughters gifts, do not believe in Christmas.
Krauthammer: Obama can lie with such surety, cold-bloodedness that I almost admire him.  Last night [12/5/2012] on Special Report online Krauthammer responded to Obama speaking out of both sides of his mouth on the charitable giving deduction (2009 vs yesterday), saying that he almost admired the level of assurance and cold-bloodedness that Obama has when he completely contradicts something he's said earlier.
Another low bow to radical Islam.  Barack Obama says he's a Christian. [...] But rarely has a Christian paid such obeisance to another faith and ideology.  The president's bow and scrape to Islam knows no end.
Obama's Family Vacation for Dudes.  Obama played golf three out of the five days he was on Oahu, engaging in marathon sessions of up to six hours for a total of about 17 hours on the links.  He spent another three or four hours toning up in the gym. [...] And not a moment, by the way, in church — unlike the two pre-election Hawaii Christmases of 2010 and 2011.
Government: America's New God.  [T]he insidious spirit of anti-Christ emanating from the Obama administration has spread far and wide.  All historical rules for winning and losing elections do not apply to Obama.  His political bullying power and irrational status as a cult hero are unprecedented.  But here is the kicker and the scariest truth about America's zombie-like loyalty to Obama.  On November 6, 2012, half the country, which includes millions of Christians, chose a Democrat and media man-made "golden man" idol as their "new" Lord and Savior.  Amazingly, actor and Obama disciple Jamie Foxx admitted it.
Pastor Leads 'Forward' Chant at Obama Pre-Inauguration Church Service.  Today [1/20/2013], just before taking his official inauguration oath, President Obama attended church, receiving the accolades of the media for doing so.  Obama, of course, has a rather checkered history with religion; his old pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, used to deliver fiery anti-American, anti-Israel diatribes from the pulpit.  At Obama's first inauguration, Rev. Joseph Lowery gave his invocation by listing racial slurs and implying that white people were responsible for the world's ills.  Now Obama's newest pastor, Rev. Ronald Braxton, is joining their prestigious company.  At Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church, Braxton reportedly crafted his speech around Obama's personal political slogan:  "Forward!"
The Anti-Christian Swears His Progressivism on the Bible.  As Barack Obama took the oath of office for the second time, he laid his hand upon two Christian Bibles:  One belonging to the devout Christian President Abraham Lincoln, and the other belonging to the Born Again Christian Baptist minister Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Such actions by the progressive/statist, who invoked God in his speech, is quite an oxymoron considering Obama is the most anti-Christian president America has ever known.
The president is lying about Benghazi.  President Obama's disregard for the truth has made Bill Clinton seem like a novice.  His statements are always riddled with inconsistency.  Many could easily have been dissected with a curious media, but that hasn't happen.  Very few people can lie as well.
If the leader of the free world can lie with such impunity we are doomed.  It really doesn't matter where he himself was deliberately lying or whether he was merely lending the gravitas of his office to the deliberate lies of others.  The point is that the President of the USA has access to any number of fact checkers and advisers and if he stands up and addresses the nation with a farrago of complete untruths then the buck stops with him.  This dissembling and mendacity becomes all the more culpable when it forms the basis of major public policy decisions which will have a serious impact on people's lives in the US and beyond.
Obamaworld full of lies.  President Obama's transparent mendacity about his responsibility for the sequester is revealing. [...] Obama is a shameless liar for petty partisan purposes.  A shameless liar for petty partisan purposes is a man of bad character.  Obama's mendacity exposes him as a man of bad character, or so it would have been thought in ages past.  Obama's lies permeate his attacks on the Republican Party.  They are part and parcel of the permanent campaign.  The campaign is a parade of lies marshaled in a malevolent partisan cause.
Obama Silent on American Christian Pastor Held in Iran.  The wife of an American pastor held captive in an Iranian prison for nearly a year said she has yet to hear from President Obama or Secretary of State John Kerry and to her knowledge the administration has not done anything to help free her husband.
State Department dodges hearing on U.S. pastor detained in Iran.  A Republican lawmaker expressed shock that State Department officials dodged a Friday hearing to discuss the ongoing saga of imprisoned American pastor Saeed Abedini.  The failure of the State Department to make an appearance came just days after America's leading representative to the U.N. Human Rights Council failed to raise the plight of the pastor during a meeting on Iran's human rights history — and Virginia Rep. Frank Wolf finds the double-dodge more than coincidental.
Obama:  No Sense Of Responsibility, Traits Of A Habitual Liar. The Lies That Enslave A Nation.  The Obama Administration knows how to do nothing better than lie.  They are past masters at the disingenuous.  They have been at it from day one.  Now they seem to just lie as a matter of course, and think nothing of it even when called on it in public.
First Family take a spring walk to Easter Sunday mass.  New York's Easter Sunday parade kicked-off in typically surreal style today while in Washington D.C., President Obama and his family walked to church for mass [sic] from the White House dressed in their spring best.  Wishing 'Happy Easter' to onlookers, Obama, his wife Michelle, and their daughters Malia and Sasha, strolled through a park to St. John's Church, where they have attended services in the past.
Obama's Easter Service: Pastor Attacks 'Captains of the Religious Right'.  At the Easter service attended Sunday [3/31/2013] by President Barack Obama and his family, the pastor railed against "captains of the religious right," according to the White House pool report cited by the Washington Post.  The service, led by Rev. Luis Leon, was held at Saint John's Church at Lafayette Square, which is where the First Family worships most often, though they have not formally joined any particular church in Washington, D.C.
Notes from Obama's Easter Service.  Here are notes on the Easter service from the pool reporter, which included this part, "It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back ... for blacks to be back in the back of the bus ... for women to be back in the kitchen ... for immigrants to be back on their side of the border".
Reverend León vs. Dr. Carson.  I've been out of pocket, so I missed most of the hullabaloo about Reverend Luis León's indefensible Easter sermon at St. John's Episcopal Church in front of the Obama family.  Among his comments he said the "religious Right" wants "blacks to be back in the back of the bus, for women to be back in the kitchen, for gays to be in the closet, and for immigrants to be on their side of the border."
This guy sounds a lot like Jeremiah Wright.

Obama wants no association with Christianity

Obama hails Kwanzaa holiday, so why not Easter?  During a presidential trip to Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation where Obama spent much of his childhood, the Democrat president misinformed a large crowd that the United States' national motto was "E Pluribus Unum," and not "In God We Trust."  In his Thanksgiving messages Obama has also strangely omitted mention of God, the usual addressee in American prayers of Thanksgiving.
Preserving Our Pledge of Allegiance.  [Scroll down]  The HHS contraception edict explicitly attacks faith as a basis for decision-making.  As well, Obama's insistence on having Christian religious symbols being hidden during his Georgetown speech, the administration's favoring the losing side in the Hosanna-Tabor 9-0 case, and its shameful attack on a publicly prayerful pro-lifer are more examples of the president's divisive quest to move us out from "under God."

Georgetown says It Covered Over Name Of Jesus To Comply With White House Request.  Georgetown University says it covered over the monogram "IHS" — symbolizing the name of Jesus Christ — because it was inscribed on a pediment on the stage where President Obama spoke at the university on Tuesday [5/8/2012] and the White House had asked Georgetown to cover up all signs and symbols there.  As of Wednesday afternoon, the "IHS" monogram that had previously adorned the stage at Georgetown's Gaston Hall was still covered up — when the pediment where it had appeared was photographed by CNSNews.com.

Obama Leaves God Out of Thanksgiving Address.  President Obama did not include any reference to God during his weekly address titled, "On Thanksgiving, Grateful for the Men and Women Who Defend Our Country."  His remarks were void of any religious references although Thanksgiving is a holiday traditionally steeped in giving thanks and praise to God.  The president said his family was "reflecting on how truly lucky we truly are."  For many Americans, though, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on how blessed and thankful they are.

President Obama left someone out of his Thanksgiving message.  Read Lincoln's Thanksgiving message, and then compare it to Obama's 2011 Thanksgiving message.

President Obama ripped by GOPers for leaving out God in his Thanksgiving speech.  President Obama may have created an unholy mess by leaving God out of his Thanksgiving speech.  Conservative pundits are blasting the commander-in-chief for having no religious references in his weekly Internet address — saying that the Almighty is surely among those we should give thanks to. ... Conservative columnist Ben Shapiro went further, tweeting Obama is a "militant atheist," adding "Unreal that Obama doesn't mention God in Thanksgiving message... to whom does he think we are giving thanks?"

In Socialism We Trust?  Sponsored by Rep. J. Randy Forbes, Virginia Republican, the bill affirms the motto and "encourages its display in public buildings and government institutions."  Mr. Forbes explained that the reminder was needed in light of Mr. Obama's recasting of the motto and also because of the mysterious replacement of the motto at the National Capitol Visitors Center "with stars in a replica of the House Chamber — and cropping an actual picture of the chamber so you could not see the words 'In God We Trust.'"

Obama Admin Opposes Prayer at WWII Memorial.  Republican lawmakers and conservative activists are expressing outrage after the Obama administration announced its objection to adding President Franklin Roosevelt's D-Day prayer to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.  The objection was noted during a congressional hearing on Rep. Bill Johnson's (R-OH) bill — the "World War II Memorial Prayer Act of 2011."

Air Force Retracted Invitation for Conservative Leader to Speak at Prayer Luncheon.  The U.S. Air Force admits that the chaplain's office at Andrews Air Force Base retracted an invitation to Family Research Council President Tony Perkins — a former Marine officer — to speak at a prayer luncheon held at the base on Thursday [2/25/2010] after the conservative leader criticized President Obama's efforts to end "Don't Ask Don't Tell" — the military policy on homosexuality.

'Tis The Season For The Tyranny Of The Minority.  President Obama said on a visit to Turkey in April that Americans "do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, or a Muslim nation, but rather a nation of citizens who are, uh, bound by a set of values." ... This statement was reiterated several times between then and April and would seem to indicate that the president is downplaying the role of Christianity in our country.

Away with the manger.  Even in Obama's superstar Christmas interviews with Oprah and Gloria Estefan, there were discussions about Santa, Christmas trees, ornaments, gingerbread houses and even their dog's Christmas stocking.  Obama even gave a Christmas shout-out to all Hispanics.  But there was not one discussion of religion or a hint of the real reason for the season.

Georgetown Says It Covered Over Name of Jesus to Comply With White House Request.  Georgetown University says it covered over the monogram "IHS" — symbolizing the name of Jesus Christ — because it was inscribed on a pediment on the stage where President Obama spoke at the university on Tuesday [4/14/2009] and the White House had asked Georgetown to cover up all signs and symbols there.

Georgetown Did Not Cover Over Name of Jesus When First Lady Laura Bush Spoke.  As First Lady, Laura Bush spoke at Georgetown University in front of the same "IHS" — a symbol for the name of Jesus  — that the Jesuit school covered over when President Barack Obama spoke there on Tuesday.

Covering up the cross.  What's wrong, what's tasteless, what's impudent, is to request that a religious institution hide its religion.  That strikes us as unnatural, artificial, and in the end an act of intolerance, for it requires others to sacrifice their integrity to please our absolute devotion to our own, uncompromising creed — in this case, a blank, official, established secularism. ... A gracious guest, and Mr. Obama was the guest in this instance, does not begin his visit by redecorating his host's house.  The sight of the university's seal as he spoke should not have offended, for it is the university's own, not a government establishment of religion.

White House, Georgetown Say Covering Over Name of Jesus Was Unintended Consequence.  CNSNews.com attempted to get a comment from the White House Wednesday about the covering up of the "IHS" symbol, but the White House did not respond.

Georgetown University Hid Religious Symbols at White House Request.  Georgetown University hid a religious inscription representing the name of Jesus during President Obama's address there Tuesday, FOXNews.com has confirmed, because White House staff asked the school to cover up all religious symbols and signs while the president was on stage.

WH: No Religious Cover-up at Georgetown.  The White House is taking some heat today from conservative and Catholic bloggers who noticed that while President Obama delivered remarks on the economy at Georgetown University Tuesday, a monogram that is a symbol for the name Jesus was covered up behind him.  CNSNews.com, a conservative web site affiliated with the Media Research Center, reported that the gold "IHS" monogram inscribed in Georgetown's Gaston Hall was covered by a piece of black-painted plywood.

Obama White House ordered coverup of religious symbols for Georgetown speech.  Surprising word today that President Barack Obama's White House asked Georgetown University to cover all religious symbols at the scene of the president's economic speech at the Roman Catholic institution Wednesday [4/15/2009].  And the prestigious Jesuit university agreed.  The decision, unnoticed at the time, seems likely to add further fuel to the ongoing controversy over Obama's upcoming graduation speech at the University of Notre Dame, where the Jesuit Indiana campus is plastered with numerous religious symbols.

Rendering Unto Caesar.  At the request of the White House, Georgetown University covered up all the symbols in Gaston Hall, before the Great Man spoke, including IHS, the millennia-old monogram for the name of Jesus Christ.  Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, had adopted the monogram in his seal and it became an emblem of the Jesuit order.

DNC Chairman Denies Obama Admin Requested Christ Symbol Cover-Up.  Is this the new politics Barack Obama promised to bring to Washington?  His hand-picked DNC Chairman just went on national TV and denied that the Obama administration requested Georgetown University to cover up the IHS monogram representing the name of Christ.

Obama Vetoes Religion in the Public Square.  The effort of America's Founders to prevent the establishment of a state religion has been twisted and reinterpreted to create an increasingly large gulf between religion and public life.  That gulf became even wider this past week, when President Obama's administration asked Georgetown University to remove all signs and symbols from their hall before the President delivered his speech to the assembly.  The University was only too willing to strip the hall of its religious symbols in order to land such a prominent speaker.  The message was clear:  religion has no place in the public square.

When color trumps Christianity.  President Obama hosted a reception at the White House celebrating LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Pride month.  Black Christians should take note and learn a few things about our black President.  As they say, we are what we do.  It tells us something that Mr. Obama had no time to host an event for the National Day of Prayer.  Nor did he have time to accept the invitation to convey greetings and a few remarks to the couple hundred thousand who came to Washington, as they do every January, for the March for Life.  However, the LGBT Pride event did make it onto the president's busy schedule.

Air Force Denies Request for Flyover at Christian Festival.  An Idaho community had secured an Air Force flyover for its local festival every year for more than 40 years, organizers say, but this year, the Air Force turned the request down over the festival's religious focus.  The God and Country Family Festival in Nampa, Idaho, applied to the Pentagon for the flyover but was denied in an e-mail, board member Patti Syme told KTBV.  Syme said the e-mail from a defense official informed her the Pentagon prohibited support of special interest groups.

The White House tries to take the Christ out of Christmas.  Did the supposedly proud Christian president really want to remove the nativity scene from the White House?  It's been a fairly standard middle-American concern for decades that liberals have tried to suck religious holidays of all meaning.  I can't imagine what the president was thinking from either the standpoint of someone who has been at pains to assert he is a believing Christian or a president simply concerned with practical politics.

N.Y. Times Downplays 'Non-Religious Christmas' Plans at White House.  Maybe they didn't know it, but The New York Times left a Christmas bomb in paragraph 12 of its syrupy Sunday story on Desiree Rogers, the bumbling Obama social secretary. ... In a description of how Rogers would make sure the White House was "Obama-tized," Stolberg noted Rogers would bend tradition to make Christmas much more secular in the new era.

Obama's 'Most Important Message'?  As I wrote last week, I knew that President Barack Obama's Christian message in his Christmas address was going to be the weakest in presidential history.  But never did I expect to hear him dodge children on the main message of Christmas and then teach them a revised version.

Disinvited.  When the Air Force chaplain's office rescinded its invitation to Tony Perkins to keynote a military families' prayer luncheon, it should have been over something truly dreadful.  Disinvitation is serious business; usually, once an offer has been made and accepted, hospitality is supposed to kick in.  So what did Perkins, a former Marine and president of the Family Research Council, do to offend the Air Force chaplaincy?

With 'Social Justice' You Don't Get Egg Roll.  Since Obama thinks that the United States is no longer a Christian nation, you have to wonder how long the White House will continue calling it an "Easter Egg Roll."  Maybe next year they'll call it "The White House Diversity and Tolerance Non-Discrimination Spring Roll," and only kids from parochial schools will be uninvited.

Where are the 'separation of church and state' people now? The Green Shepherd.  If the Obama administration has its way, the gospel of climate change will be coming to a pulpit near you.  That at least seems to be the dream of the President's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships — a 25-member group of leaders from across the religious spectrum that is part of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

The Editor says... This demonstrates that President Obama wants no association with Christianity, unless he can use churches to his political advantage.

Obama Missed a Great Chance.  President Obama had a golden Memorial Day opportunity to show the country that (contrary to his left flank) he is not anti-military and not anti-Christian, by telling Attorney General Eric Holder to order the Park Service to permit volunteer veterans to replace the Mojave Cross that was stolen on May 9.  But he let the atheists and those who sneer at our veterans win the day.

President Obama:  Muslim Missionary?  Speaking for most Founding Fathers in his day, John Jay, the first chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, appointed by George Washington himself, said, "Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."  Two hundred years later, President Barack Obama has denied America's rich Judeo-Christian heritage before the eyes and ears of other countries, as he publicly declared in Turkey on April 6, 2009, "We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation."

The un-faith of Obama.  In the past year alone he made a big deal out of hosting a celebratory dinner to open the month of Ramadan — held in the state dining room; he refused to attend the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts (an avowed Christian organization), and, refused to attend the National Day of Prayer because he claimed to do so would be offensive to non-Christians.  News flash Mr. President:  your continued snubbing of all things Christian is highly offensive and troubling to the millions of Christians in America you seem to hold in contempt.

Does President Obama Think Our Rights Come from Our Creator?  The most famous words in the Declaration of Independence — and almost surely the most famous words ever written by an American — read, "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."  On Friday evening [9/17/2010], when President Obama addressed the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, he quoted that passage as follows:  "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal [pause], endowed with certain unalienable rights:  life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."  In Obama's version, there is no "Creator."

Obama Again Omits 'Creator' When Speaking of 'Inalienable Rights'.  Just seven days after he sparked controversy by omitting the word "Creator" when he closely paraphrased the passage from the Declaration of Independence that says all men "are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights," President Barack Obama again omitted the Creator when speaking about the "inalienable rights" that "everybody is endowed with."  This time the president was speaking at a Sept. 22 fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, and his reference to "inalienable rights" was not as close a paraphrasing of the Declaration as it had been the week before.

Obama Strips the 'Creator' from Declaration of Independence -- Again.  For the second time in little over a month, President Barack Obama stripped the word "Creator" from the Declaration of Independence when giving a speech.

Obama Edits the Declaration of Independence.  An October 19 article at CNSnews by Penny Star noted that "For the second time in little over a month, President Barack Obama stripped the word 'Creator' from the Declaration of Independence when giving a speech."  These speeches have generated much debate concerning whether the president's omissions were deliberate or mistaken.  The answer, I think, can be found in President Obama's inauguration speech, which is perhaps the most striking example of this phenomenon, yet no one seemed to notice it then.

Obama muffed U.S. motto.  Members of Congress on Monday [12/6/2010] called on President Obama to issue a public correction after he incorrectly labeled E pluribus unum the U.S.'s motto in a speech last month, rather than "In God We Trust."  The lawmakers, members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, also said the president was making "a pattern" of dropping the word "Creator" when he recites the self-evident truths of the Declaration of Independence.  "By misrepresenting things as foundational as the Declaration of Independence and our national motto, you are not only doing a disservice to the people you represent you are casting aside an integral part of American society," the representatives said in a stern letter asking for him to correct the speech.

The Editor says... This pattern of behavior clearly shows that President Obama is either dishonest or ignorant.

Obama's revisionist history.  President Barack Obama has been accused of rewriting the Constitution to get his agenda in place.  Now he's also rewording the Declaration of Independence.  The Heritage Foundation notes that in three recent appearances, the president has quoted the opening passage of the document, but has changed the phrase "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights" to simply "endowed with certain unalienable rights."  Heritage suggests Obama's editing out of the Creator is an intentional downplaying of private institutions such as religion in an effort to make government more significant.  Maybe.  Or it could reflect his obsession with political correctness.

President Obama's Speech Impediment.  Our Dear Leader has a serious speech impediment.  Now, I'm not thinking about the mechanics of his highly overrated style and presentation, but rather his apparent inability to pronounce a particular word:  Creator.  On three separate occasions, within the last few months, he has quoted that immortal phrase from the Declaration ("...that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights..."), but omitting the word "Creator."  Now, while this might set aside the suspicion in certain quarters that Obama is indeed a closet Muslim, it gives one pause to reflect on just what is going on here.

Catholic Doctor Explains Native American Prayer He Delivered at Arizona Memorial.  Wednesday night's [1/12/2011] memorial service for the shooting victims in Tucson did not open with a prayer from a Jewish rabbi, a Protestant minister or a Catholic priest — it began with a Native American "blessing" that left many puzzled about what it meant and why it was performed.  The prayer, which did not use the word "God" and did not make the traditional request for God's comfort for the bereaved that many might have expected, did mention the Creator and called for "honoring" the Seven Directions, including "Father Sky" and "Mother Earth" — and remembering our "fellow creatures" who "crawl on the earth" and "slither on the earth."

Franklin Graham Says Obama, Tucson Memorial Service 'Scoffed' at Jesus.  In a speech on Tuesday [1/18/2011] at John Brown University, a private Christian college in Siloam Springs, Ark., the son of the revered evangelist Billy Graham voiced "dismay" at the way the Tucson memorial service was conducted, arguing that it was not as explicitly religious — mainly "Christian" — as those following the Oklahoma City bombing and the 9/11 attacks.  Graham was particularly upset that the Tucson memorial featured a Native American who called upon "father sky and mother earth."

The rot in values that is causing America's decline.  Thrift, hard work, close-knit families, a pioneering spirit, a love of adventure, a rejection of indolence, faith-based ethics, a God-centric society, a belief in spreading freedom and democracy — where did that all go?  Science and math.  Science and math.  President Barack Obama's new mantra is science and math.

WH Fails to Release Easter Proclamation.  President Obama failed to release a statement or a proclamation recognizing the national observance of Easter Sunday, Christianity's most sacred holiday.  By comparison, the White House has released statements recognizing the observance of major Muslim holidays and released statements in 2010 on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.  The White House also failed to release a statement marking Good Friday.  However, they did release an eight-paragraph statement heralding Earth Day.  Likewise, the president's weekend address mentioned neither Good Friday or Easter.

Obama to Christians: Forget you.  President Obama delivered official messages for Passover, Ramadan and Diwali.  But for Easter?  Not so much.  The White House came under fire this week for neglecting to issue official statements for either Easter or Good Friday, though Mr. Obama did take time Friday to address Earth Day, a celebration observed by tens of thousands of pagan worshippers of the earth goddess Gaia. ... He also quoted passages from a historic 1945 sermon delivered by a chaplain in the wake of the fierce fighting on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima but edited out any mention of Jesus.

The Danger in Severing God from America's Identity.  [Scroll down]  Our leader, too, works feverishly to sever the relationship between God and America, and to downplay the latter's reliance on the former.  Consider that Barack Obama has gone out of his way on numerous occasions to describe that "we are no longer a Christian nation."  Or consider that he has wished goodwill to Muslims around the world on the uniquely Islamic holidays of Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha, but failed this past weekend to offer the same courtesy to American Christians to commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Obama Strikes God from the Declaration Again.  This weekend, President Obama once again omitted the Declaration of Independence's reference to the "Creator," this time while celebrating an international sanction of the homosexual and transgender lifestyle.  Ironically, in doing so, he proved the truth of the Bible.

Obama's Christian problem.  Those who are more devout give Mr. Obama lower marks than those for whom religion is unimportant.  According to the most recent Gallup data, Mr. Obama has 43 percent approval of those who attend church "seldom or never," which is 2 points above that survey's national average.  Among those who attend church weekly, his approval rate is 34 percent, seven points below average.  It's no mystery why America's Christian faithful have little faith in Mr. Obama.

Obama's war on decency.  Three incidents in recent days tell us all we need to know about the Obama administration's "values."  On Dec. 1, the story broke that Bethesda-based Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where wounded veterans convalesce, apparently had banned visitors from bringing in Bibles or other religious items.  Walter Reed's Chief of Staff C.W. Callahan issued a memo in September that said, "No religious items (i.e., Bibles, reading material, and/or artifacts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit."  Telling wounded soldiers and their families that their First Amendment freedoms have been suspended should be a firing offense.

U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Pays Homage to Obama — But Not Jesus.  The 63-foot Sierra White Fir lighted at the U.S. Capitol Grounds on Dec. 6 as the official 2011 Capitol Christmas Tree includes a prominently displayed ornament paying homage to President Barack Obama, but includes no ornament readily visible to a person standing near the tree's base that uses the word "Christmas," or includes an image of the Nativity, or bears the name or image of Jesus Christ.  On the north side of the tree — at a height of about 4 feet and easily visible to people standing near it — there is an ornament that says:  "I ♥ President Obama."

At last a mention for Christmas.  The Obamas were last week mocked for having sent out a Christmas card, featuring their dog Bo, containing no discernible mention of Christmas itself.  They also sent out a secular card in 2009.

On the other hand... The Obamas celebrate Kwanzaa in spirit of umoja.  ["]Michelle and I send our warmest wishes to all those celebrating Kwanzaa this holiday season.  Today marks the beginning of the week-long celebration honoring African American heritage and culture through the seven principles of Kwanzaa...["]

President Obama marks the Hajj and Eid al-Adha.  ["]Michelle and I extend our greetings for a happy Eid al-Adha to Muslims worldwide and congratulate those performing Hajj.["]

Air Force Removes 'God' From Logo.  A Virginia lawmaker is calling on the Air Force to reverse a decision to remove a Latin reference to "God" from a logo after an atheist group complained.  Rep. Randy Forbes, (R-VA), said the Air Force removed the logo several weeks ago from the Rapid Capabilities Office.

Obama administration deletes religious service for student loan forgiveness.  The federal government will no longer forgive student loans in exchange for public service if that service is related to religion, according to a new Education Department rule from the Obama administration.  The Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program announced the change Jan. 31 with little fanfare, while most of Washington was focused on the new ObamaCare rule requiring religious organizations to provide free birth control through health insurance.

Obama Invites Sharpton to WH, But Not Southern Baptist President.  The White House is facing criticism for their decision to invite the Rev. Al Sharpton to the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, while excluding top leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention — the nation's largest Protestant denomination.

Phyllis Schlafly: For Obama, 'no higher power' than government.  Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly told a group of reporters at the Heritage Foundation Tuesday [7/24/2012] that President Barack Obama believes that loyalty to government trumps even loyalty to God.  She cited the mandates set forth by the Affordable Care Act and the repeal of the military's 'don't ask, don't tell' policy as two examples of where she said the president has put government ahead of the institution of religion.  "He seems to want to get rid of religion in any public place — a public school, or a public institution — and to keep it behind the four walls of your own church," Schlafly said.

Democrats have removed God from the Democratic National Committee platform.  David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network noticed the omission and compared the language in the 2012 DNC platform to the language in the 2008 platform.  In 2008, the DNC platform read: ["]We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.["]  In 2012, the words "God-given" were removed, [...] In addition, there is no mention of "God" in the "Faith" section of the platform as well.

Democrats Embrace Sandra Fluke, Not God And Jerusalem.  The offending passage, the only reference to God in the 2008 platform, the first Obama ran on, said:  "We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential."  "God-given potential" is not consistent with the philosophy of an administration that insists "you didn't build that," through hard work or divine providence.  The attempt to remove a line referring to people living up to their "God-given" potential was approved by a president who has studiously omitted "by our Creator" when he quotes the Declaration of Independence's reference to the rights we are endowed with.

God was merely an afterthought.  The Democratic Party didn't quite succeed in banning God from its platform, but it did its best to ensure that no one would listen to him by putting a liberal clergyman who talks about anything except God in front of a deserted stadium.  That checked the God box without allowing the Maker of Heaven to get a word in edgewise.

For the Fourth Straight Year, Obama's Thanksgiving Message Doesn't Thank God.  Yet again, President Obama's Thanksgiving message eschewed any direct reference to thanking God, making this the fourth straight year in which the President of the United States has ignored the central message of the holiday in favor of political grandstanding.
White House "Holiday" Card Spotlights Dog, Not Christmas.  The 2012 White House "Holiday" card spotlights the Obama's family Portuguese water dog — instead of Christmas.  The black and white illustration was designed by Iowa artist Larassa Kabel and shows Bo the dog, wearing a scarf, while frolicking in the snow on the South Lawn of a blurred White House.
When the government tells you how to pray, or what to exclude from your prayers, you live in tyranny. Politically Correct Checklist for Those Praying at Inauguration?  Once again, liberal activists have demanded a theological litmus test for the pastor who will pray at President Obama's Inauguration ceremony.  Pastor Louie Giglio of Passion City Church in Atlanta has been forced to withdraw his acceptance to pray at the inauguration because activists found a sermon from the mid-1990s where he preached the Biblical doctrine defining marriage as one man and one woman.  Because Giglio applied that doctrine to homosexual behavior, activists howled that he must not pray at the inauguration.
There's No Sin at This Inauguration.  Sheryl Gay Stolberg's New York Times piece on Rev. Louie Giglio has since been scrubbed, but here's the original language:  "An official with Mr. Obama's Presidential Inaugural Committee said the committee, which operates separately from the White House, vetted Mr. Giglio.  People familiar with internal discussions between administration and committee officials said the White House viewed the selection as a problem for Mr. Obama, and told the panel on Wednesday night to quickly fix it.  By Thursday morning, Mr. Giglio said he had withdrawn." [...] But now, the story eliminates any indication of White House pressure on Giglio — it's just gone, as if it never happened.
Disinviting God to the Inauguration.  Liberals booed God at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte last year after skittish party officials reinserted a mention of him in the platform.  Nothing has changed since then.  The latest secularist push of the party is to remove God from the inauguration.  Prominent liberals are questioning the use of the Bible for the presidential oath and the use of prayers in the ceremony.
Could Dr. King Have Given the Inaugural Benediction?  The Rev. Louie Giglio, designated to give the benediction at this year's presidential inauguration, has withdrawn, under apparent pressure, after the surfacing of remarks he made, some 25 years ago, about the sinfulness of homosexuality.  Note that the pastor of the evangelical Passion City Church in Atlanta has been pushed off the stage not because of a deed, but because of words he said — words expressing a widely held Christian belief that homosexuality is a sin.
"Reverend" Fails To Mention Jesus At Benediction — Credits MLK For Jesus' Words.  Rev. Luis Leon is the guy who replaced Louie Giglio, who was ironically axed for embracing the same biblical positions on homosexuality as MLK himself.  Although he never mentioned Jesus, the good Rev — to no one's surprise — did not fail to mention gays and race.
The (g)odless Inaugural Prayer.  If President Obama's goal with the inaugural prayers was to marginalize and offend devout, conservative Christians and orthodox Jews, it would be fair to say:  mission accomplished.  The choice of Myrlie Evers-Williams, widow of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers, departed from historical protocol.  She was the first female and first non-clergy member to lead an inaugural prayer.
Under God Axed from Obama's Invocation.  We can at least say that the man is consistent.  On the other hand, this is the first time in presidential inaugural history where the invocation was given by a non-clergy member.
Obama's Inaugural Prayer Drops "Under God".  [Video clip]
Army Removes Crosses, Steeple from Chapel.  The U.S. military ordered soldiers to remove a cross and a steeple from atop a chapel and to board up cross-shaped windows at a remote American forward operating base in Afghanistan.  The removal of Christian symbols from the chapel at Forward Operating Base Orgun-E came after a solider complained — leading American Atheists president David Silverman to send a letter to the Pentagon.
Did God Exalt Obama to the Presidency?  [Scroll down]  The Democratic Party rejected God by a voice vote.  That happened at their convention in 2012.  Then the chairman had to outflank them.  It may be true that apparently Obama requested putting God back in the platform, but how did things deteriorate so far?  In any event, God was dropped at the inaugural prayer.  Fighting like this about God does not inspire confidence.

Obama snubs the National Day of Prayer

Obama to be prayer day no-show.  President Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer by nixing a formal early morning service and not attending a large Catholic prayer breakfast the next morning.  All Mr. Obama will do for the National Day of Prayer, which is Thursday [5/7/2009], is sign a proclamation honoring the day, which originated in 1952 when Congress set aside the first Thursday in May for the observance.

Obama to Mark National Day of Prayer Privately.  White House spokesman Robert Gibbs defended the Obama administration's plan to recognize the National Day of Prayer on Thursday with a paper proclamation, rather than a public event at the White House.  "We're doing a proclamation, which I know that many administrations in the past have done," Gibbs told reporters Tuesday.

Obama's prayer snub brings reproach.  "We are disappointed at the lack of emphasis on prayer at the National Day of Prayer," James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, told reporters at the Cannon House Office Building after a three-hour prayer observance.  "There are tens of millions of people praying across this country — 40,000 prayer events taking place today — and yet for the first time since 1993, the White House did not even send a representative of the Cabinet to the National Day of Prayer.

Obama's National Day of Prayer Proclamation Mentions God Only Once.  President Barack Obama issued a proclamation on Thursday afternoon — as required by federal law — marking the day as National Day of Prayer, but the proclamation is in contrast to the original proclamation making the first Thursday in May a national day of prayer and fasting.  Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Obama would issue a proclamation but that he did not plan any public appearances or meetings with religious leaders as President George W. Bush did each year of his administration.

Dobson: Super Bowl Teams Welcome at White House, but 'Celebrating Prayer is Ignored'.  Evangelical leader Dr. James Dobson said President Obama's snub of Thursday's National Day of Prayer left Christians "disappointed" — and a bit puzzled.  "When a professional baseball team wins the World Series, or when the Super Bowl is played, or when college teams win the national championship, they're invited to the White House to celebrate," Dobson said at a Capitol Hill news conference.  "That's important, apparently.  But celebrating prayer, which is our heritage, is ignored."

White House Christmas Decorations?  Yes.  White House Christmas Card?  No.  A Republican lawmaker with a mission to save Christmas is aiming his latest salvo at President and first lady Obama, who've followed in a recent tradition to eliminate the mention of Christmas in the White House holiday cards.  The card selected by the Obamas announces:  "Season's Greetings."  Inside, it reads:  "May your family have a joyous holiday season and a new year blessed with hope and happiness."

Lawmaker Calls for Hearings into Pentagon's 'Politically Correct' Decisions.  A conservative Republican congressman from Georgia is calling for congressional hearings to investigate actions by the U.S. military in recent weeks to cancel or rescind invitations that had been made to two prominent conservative Christian leaders — Franklin Graham and Tony Perkins — to speak at military prayer events.

White House Censoring Christianity?  Two high-profile cancellations by the Pentagon of speeches from prominent Christian leaders have many outraged over censorship of Christianity by a politically-correct military.  Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and Rev. Franklin Graham both recently had invitations to speak at prayer events hosted by the Air Force and the Army revoked.

The President wants nothing to do with the National Day of Prayer, but... Obama greets people on Diwali.  US President Barack Obama on Thursday [11/4/2010] greeted people across the globe on the occasion of Diwali and said that he is looking forward to his India visit.

The Editor says... Call me a hayseed, but I had never heard of Diwali.  Apparently it is a five-day festival that is important to Hinduism, Sikhism and Jainism.  And evidently it is important to Mr. and Mrs. Obama as well.


Obama's new  pastor  Spiritual Advisor:  Jim Wallis

Evidently Mr. Wallis is not the pastor of a church, per se, so it is apparently fair to say that President Obama still does not go to church, and thus it is still reasonable to wonder if Mr. Obama really is a Christian.  Mr. Wallis is part of a group called Sojourners, which appears to be a group of "community organizers" and anti-war protesters masquerading as a church group.

Progressives and the Supernatural Powers of Government.  If we are to understand Progressives, we have to understand that they are True Believers in the power of the State to make all of society whole simply by passing and administrating laws that are created "in the public interest."  This religious belief is non-negotiable.  E.J. Dionne believes ultimately that the State is God.  So does Jim Wallis, and both men believe that Barack Obama is the very epitome of the Holy State and that Obama "is going to save us."
The Editor says... In other words, Barack Obama has chosen a "spiritual advisor" who believes that Obama some kind of deity.
My Belated List of Things for Which I Am Thankful.  [I'm] Thankful for Great Men of the Cloth such as Jim Wallis of Sojourners, who never stops talking about the poor, and then helps to convince politicians such as President Barack Obama to pursue policies that will ensure that we have lots of poor people in this country.  Wallis needs to have the poor in order to feel good about himself, as he calls for government help for those same poor.
More problematic pastors for Obama.  The New York Times published an article on the pastors to whom Barack Obama has reached out.  Having thrown his longtime pastor Jeremiah Wright, Junior under the bus during the campaign, when his radical views became a political problem, he is in need of spiritual counsel or a least cover.  The disturbing point is that of the five pastors listed, Jim Wallis is the only one credited with influencing Obama on policy issues.

Sojourning Socialists.  Barack Obama has joined forces with a white socialist he calls a "good friend" — the Rev. Jim Wallis, founder of "Sojourners."  He too believes in "liberation theology," sans the black nationalism.  In fact, Wallis is the white version of Jeremiah Wright, sans the black rage.

Barack Obama's Newest Spiritual Advisor:  Now that he no longer draws spiritual succor from Jeremiah Wright — the America-hating, racist demagogue who served as his pastor and spiritual mentor for twenty years — Barack Obama has turned elsewhere for guidance in the task of carrying out his political duties while remaining true to his religious values.  The most notable of his spiritual advisors today is his friend of many years, Rev. Jim Wallis, founder of the Sojourners organization.  Says Wallis, "We've [he and Obama] been talking faith and politics for a long time."

Soros Has a Pastor Close to Obama On His Payroll.  The tangled web woven by George Soros served as a safety net for Barack Obama when he needed rescue from the exposure of Jeremiah Wright as an America-hating radical.  Pastor Jim Wallis lied about receiving money from George Soros's Open Society Institute.  His organization, Sojourners, is a leftist "social justice" type of ministry.  He and Sojourners have a history with Barack Obama that I have been tracking for a few years.  When the Jeremiah Wright scandal erupted, candidate Barack Obama had to find religion — fast.  Fortunately for him, he had a backup pastor in place and ready to go:  Jim Wallis.

Censoring Questions about Obama's Religion.  In a major liberal initiative to curtail discussion of President Obama's religious identity, over 70 Christian leaders and denominational heads have signed a letter saying that questions about the religious philosophy of the President of the United States should be ignored and suppressed by the major media.  The letter demands that the media "offer no further support or airtime to those who misrepresent and call into question the President's Christian faith."  The apparent initiator of the letter is Obama associate Jim Wallis of the Sojourners group, a group funded by atheist George Soros.

God Wants Welfare (and More Debt)?  Jim Wallis says yes.  After literally decades of failed social policies — policies that have helped create a permanent underclass, fostered a dependent spirit in millions of citizens, and helped explode the illegitimacy rate (all for the low, low price of several trillion dollars) — it would be tempting to roll our eyes at Wallis's christianized socialism.  Unfortunately, however, the evangelical progressive Left is gaining ground in American Christianity.

Somewhat related: Communing with hatemongers from the pulpit.  President Obama sure is serpent-bit when it comes to going to church.  First, it was his longtime Chicago preacher who dragged the young presidential aspirant into hot water with all his fiery old sermons about the U.S. of KKK and chickens coming home to roost.  Now, his most regular preacher, we find out, hangs out with white supremacists. [...] Those of us who prefer our church and state to be strictly separate are accustomed to cringing at cloying politicians who wallow in church teachings to round up voters during political seasons.  The only thing more detestable are preachers who play politician and sermonize about partisan politics.

More about Abortion in general.




Is Obama a Muslim?

As I have pointed out elsewhere, Democrats often have difficulty telling the truth when there is a big political prize at stake.  Or any other time.  For example, two of the best known "strangers to the truth" are Bill and Hillary Clinton.  ("It depends upon what the meaning of the word 'is' is.")  Now we have a candidate for the presidency who, besides being a man with a mysteriously blank record in public office, is supported by throngs of young people who are enjoy his warm and fuzzy speeches without ever analyzing what he says, or doesn't say.  One thing Mr. Obama doesn't talk about in his speeches is his Muslim background.  Apparently he thinks we won't notice.  This might have worked 20 years ago, but now the internet makes it possible to recover information from once thought to have been thrown down the memory hole.  Just ask Senators John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, or Robert Byrd.  Or John McCain, for that matter.

Is it possible that Senator Obama is intentionally, consciously lying about his status as a Muslim?  Spend five minutes on the internet and you'll discover that the Koran says it is a virtue to lie to infidels in order to deceive them and defeat them in war.*  Osama Bin Laden declared a holy war on the U.S. years ago.*. So for the duration of the war, it is a mistake to believe anything a Muslim says.  There's a word for this blatant dishonesty — Al-taqiyya.

Is it hard to imagine that Barack Obama really is a Muslim?  We know him by the company he keeps, and if he shares the views of his wife and his pastor, he is a man who sees America as a villain and a global bully.  Those views would make perfect sense if it turns out that he is in fact a Muslim.

If Barack H. Obama was raised as a Muslim, and his father, step-father and siblings are all Muslims, then he is a Muslim until he publicly renounces any association with Islam.  And with the terrorism threat level already at "Elevated" he would probably put himself in jeopardy if he made a very public repudiation of Islam.  Apostasy is not something the Muslims take lightly.  It would be better (safer) for him to take his chances with the voters, and keep distracting them with an assortment of spectacular campaign promises.

Many people believe that this is a ludicrous suggestion because there has been no mention of this idea on television news programs.  But the news media have been very friendly toward Obama, as pointed out on another page.  And in case you haven't noticed, there are a lot of other things that the news media haven't reported.

Walid Shoebat to America: You have been infiltrated, your president is a Muslim.  Walid Shoebat spoke a few days ago on Bible Prophecy talking mainly about Islam and the Antichrist.  But he focused part of his message on America and why he believes she will be one of the major countries fighting against the Islamic Antichrist in the end.  He acknowledges, though, that America has been infiltrated by the enemy, that even our own president is a Muslim who is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in different parts of the world whether it be in Egypt or Syria.  Most of us here know that already but it's great to hear Walid speak the truth.
New Photos From Occidental Years Show Real Obama.  The New Yorker blog features new photos that verify my take on what our 44th president acted and looked like as a sophomore at Occidental College.  Readers will note the real Obama, the young revolutionary extremist with a soft spot for Islam, that I got to know as a participant in Occidental's radical student politics.  Most shockingly, the photos show Obama wearing a band on his left ring finger that WND alleges reads "there is no God but Allah."

Obama's ring: 'There is no god but Allah'.  As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama's practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues.  Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple's wedding ceremony in 1992.  Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada:  "There is no god except Allah."

Why Didn't Obama Disclose His Muslim Devotee's Ring?  Those who have chosen to assess the evidence objectively have seen through Barack Obama's facade for a long time now.  We have known him to be a born, raised, tutored, mentored, and career managed crypto-Marxist, who has also maintained a deep-seated affinity for Islam, since the days of his training in Muslim school, in Indonesia.  That affinity is now recognized on his ring of devotion to Islam, which also became his wedding ring.

1.5 Billion Bin Ladens.  At the heart of events is the intention to create a Muslim caliphate stretching across the Middle East, Northern Africa, and into Southeast Asia.  One that will stretch into Europe and, presumably, America.  The aim is to establish governments in which Sharia law will replace any remnants of democracy and freedom.  It is being aided and abetted by Barack Hussein Obama.

Why So Many People Think Obama Is a Muslim.  A new Gallup poll shows that 11% of Americans think Obama is a Muslim, and the leftist media just can't figure out why anyone would get that idea. [...] Obama has banned the word "jihad" and any discussion of Islam from State, Defense, and Justice Department vernacular and counter-terrorism materials.  He is denying that jihad is the enemy, while his Justice Department acts as the de facto legal arm for Muslim Brotherhood groups in America.  And the Obama administration has held hundreds of meetings with U.S. Hamas front groups.  Obama is withholding evidence in the Fort Hood jihad that has held up the court case of the single worst act of war on a military base in U.S. history.  The Obama administration refers to the Fort Hood jihad as "workplace violence."

Obama's Muslim Dream.  There is no doubt that our President is a dedicated Muslim.  To be able to recite the Islamic call to prayer in Arabic, kneeling down in prayer in a Mosque, bowing to a Saudi King, Muslim appointees to our Federal Government, to be a follower and lover of George Soros, and to offer amnesty to law breaking illegal aliens.

Obama marks Ramadan: 'Islam is part of the fabric of our Nation'.  [Quoting Barack H. Obama:]  ["]The United States continues to stand with those who seek the chance to decide their own destiny, to live free from fear and violence, and to practice their faith freely.  Here in the United States, Ramadan reminds us that Islam is part of the fabric of our Nation, and that — from public service to business, from healthcare and science to the arts — Muslim Americans help strengthen our country and enrich our lives.["]

The Editor says... When has Barack H. Obama ever said that Christianity "is part of the fabric of our Nation", or that Christian "Americans help strengthen our country and enrich our lives"?  In fact, he has said the opposite — that Christians bitterly cling to their guns and religion.  Barack H. Obama is most definitely a Muslim sympathizer, if not in fact a Muslim.

Obama: 'Son of Islam'?  [Franklin] Graham was absolutely right to say that, "under Islamic law, the Muslim world sees Barack Obama as a Muslim, as a son of Islam": according to Sharia, if one's father is Muslim, one automatically becomes Muslim. ... Because of this automatic passage of Islam from father to son — with the death penalty for those seeking to apostatize, the condemned Iranian pastor being just the most visible example — and because Obama attended a madrassa (a Muslim religious school) during his youth in Indonesia, many Muslims are convinced that Obama is a "secret" Muslim. ... Islamic history is full of stories of Muslims denying and publicly cursing Islam, even pretending to be Christian, whenever it was strategic.

Asked if he converted Obama from Islam to Christianity, Wright said, "That's hard to tell." New Book Casts Doubt on Obama's Christian Identity.  The liberal media have harangued figures such as Franklin Graham when they have refused to state categorically that Barack Obama is a Christian.  Now comes author Edward Klein telling Sean Hannity that Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of United Church of Christ in Chicago, told him that he "made it comfortable" for Obama to accept Christianity "without having to renounce his Islamic background."  All of this is consistent with our point, made in 2010, that Muslims could join Wright's church without giving up their Muslim faith.  And while Obama accepted Christianity, in the sense of calling himself a Christian, there is no evidence that he was ever officially baptized into Wright's church.

Is Obama Really a Muslim Slave?  Obama was raised a Muslim.  He became a non-practicing Muslim only when he was told that being a Muslim wouldn't be good for his political career 20 years ago.  So he started occasionally attending Jeremiah Wright's America-hating, church of black liberation theology.  To my knowledge, Obama had never attended, nor been baptized in a real Christian church until his inauguration.  He has consistently sided with the Muslims against Israel, and done nothing to prevent Iran from taking the next step toward their nuclear weapons ambition.  He has consistently promoted Islamic interests in America while siding with the ACLU in opposing Christianity.

Obama Birth Certificate Issue More Urgent Than Ever.  [Scroll down slowly]  Obama denies he's a Muslim but "the accumulated research from primary sources who knew Obama from his childhood indicate that he was a devout Muslim, the son of a devout Muslim, the stepson of a devout Muslim and the grandson and namesake ("Hussein") of a devout Muslim.  He was registered in school in Indonesia as a Muslim and demonstrated his ability to chant praise to Allah in impressive Arab-accented tones even as an adult.  Just as he has not disavowed his 'uncle' Jeremiah, neither has he disavowed the Muslim faith that he was born into and raised in.

Barack Obama Chamberlain.  In Barack Obama, we are witnessing the second coming, not of Christ, but of Neville Chamberlain himself, the embodiment of appeasement. ... We have now witnessed a supposed "re-booting of America's image" in the Muslim world as inaugurated by President Obama's much ballyhooed Cairo speech.  He and the First Lady have treated us to Muslim celebrations and declarations in the White House for Ramadan.  The president has hosted an "Entrepreneur Summit" for Muslim leaders.  He has issued paeans on the inspiring splendors of Islam, "one of the world's great religions."

Obama's religion:  On March 14th, 2007, the Obama Campaign told the LA Times that Obama was not a "practicing Muslim."  But Muslims do not see practice as key.  For them, that Obama was born to a line of Muslim males makes him born a Muslim.  Further, all children born with an Arabic name based on the H-S-N trilateral root (Hussein, Hassan, and others) can be assumed to be Muslim, so they will understand Obama's full name, Barack Hussein Obama, to proclaim him a born Muslim.

Our First Muslim President.  If it is true that Obama was registered in school as a Muslim when he was a child, he could possibly be charged with being an apostate from Islam.  This could give him a unique chance to speak out about the freedom of conscience and the human rights of those who leave Islam — for Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, ordered that apostates from Islam be put to death. ... So is Obama under a death sentence?  Probably not — particularly if he left Islam while still a child.

Barack Obama and Slavery:  Many people seem to the names "Barack" and "Obama" are African names.  They are not.  Baraq [Barack] was the name of the winged horse-like creature that took Mohammed to Paradise in the Night Journey.  Baraq can also mean God's blessing.  Obama is Swahili for Osama, who was one of Mohammed's chief warriors.  Osama also means lion.  Hussein reminds some Americans of Saddam Hussein, and Obama's supporters get upset if it is used.  Hussein was the name of Mohammed's grandson.  So Obama's entire name is based upon Islamic mythology and African conquest.  Barack Hussein Obama means [Allah's blessing] [Mohammed's grandson] [One of Mohammed's finest warriors].

Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood:  Obama asserted in December, "I've always been a Christian," and he has adamantly denied ever having been a Muslim.  "The only connection I've had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father's side came from that country [Kenya].  But I've never practiced Islam." … "Always" and "never" leave little room for equivocation.  But many biographical facts, culled mainly from the American press, suggest that, when growing up, the Democratic candidate for president both saw himself and was seen as a Muslim.

Barack Obama's Muslim links:  He is the product of a black Moslem from Kenya, Barrack Hussein Obama, and a white atheist from Kansas, Shirley Ann Dunham, who met at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.  That is why his middle name is the same as Saddam's:  Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.  His first name is taken from the Islamic term in Arabic for "blessed," baraka, used in the Koran.  His father deserted the family when Barack Jr. was two and returned to Kenya.  His mother then married another Moslem studying at UH, Lolo Soetoro from Indonesia.  He moved with his mother and stepfather to Jakarta when he was six, where he attended a Moslem medressa (religious school).  That makes him a Moslem.

Why Islamists Cheer For Obama:  Earlier this month, Libya's strongman Muammar Khadafi gave an endorsement speech in which he called Barack Obama a "brother" and expressed his hope that he will "change America from evil to good and that America will establish relations that will serve it well with other people, especially the Arabs."

A Messiah Manufactured by Marxism.  Time is closing in on the 11th hour of Election '08 but the search for the real Obama is still on.  If Obama steps out of the fog through the scavenger hunt for his birth certificate and unanswered questions about his alliance to Islam into the Oval office, he will usher in a new socialist America.  Concerns about Obama, the closet Muslim, fit right in with Obama, the Marxist.  Marxists, always difficult to pin down, work hand in hand with radical Islam.

The Evolution of Slick Barry:  Barack Obama's campaign said he never practiced Islam, and has never been a Muslim.  However, the LA Times found that Obama was registered as a Muslim at both private and public schools he attended, and he also studied at his local Islamic center.  His campaign backtracked and confirmed those facts after the LA Times reported them.

People see in Obama what they want to see — that's a blessing and a curse.  Obama is not a Muslim.  Nonetheless, according to a recent Pew research survey, 12% of Americans still believe that he is.  Another 10% say they have "heard different things".  This is why the New Yorker cartoon portraying Obama as a flag-burning terrorist wasn't that funny.  For satire to work, it has to be edgy.  It fails when it misjudges where the edge is.  When, according to another survey, one in five Democrats with a negative opinion of Obama believes he is a Muslim, we are not talking isolated pockets but mainstream public opinion.

Republican Congressman Stands By Obama Comments; McCain Disavows Him.  Republican Representative Steve King of Iowa stood by his controversial comments on Saturday [3/8/2008] that if Democrat Barack Obama were elected president that Muslim extremists would be jubilant. … "I will tell you that, if he is elected president, then the radical Islamists, the al-Qaida, the radical Islamists and their supporters, will be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on Sept. 11, because they will declare victory in this war on terror," King was quoted as saying by The Daily Reporter in Spencer, Iowa.

Letter from Barack Obama on His Muslim Heritage:  "My father was a Muslim and although I did not know him well the religion of my father and his family was always something I had an interest in.  This interest became more intense when my mother married an Indonesian Muslim man and as a small child I lived in Indonesia and attended school alongside Muslim pupils. … This is what I will bring to the office of the Presidency of the United States.  I will deal with Muslims from a position of familiarity and respect and at this time in the history of our nation that is something sorely needed.

Our First Muslim President.  The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday [3/15/2007] that Barack Obama's campaign seems to be modifying its earlier affirmation that "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian who attends the United Church of Christ in Chicago."  In a statement to The Times on Wednesday, the campaign offered slightly different wording, saying:  "Obama has never been a practicing Muslim."

Hillary's team has questions about Obama's Muslim background.  Are the American people ready for an elected president who was educated in a Madrassa as a young boy and has not been forthcoming about his Muslim heritage?  This is the question Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's camp is asking about Sen. Barack Obama.

Obama campaign hires Muslim liaison.  Obama's campaign has created a Muslim liaison, according to two sources familiar with the move. … The job is complicated by the fact that Obama has been forced repeatedly to deny that he is Muslim, a situation that grates on some Muslim-Americans.

Tracking Down Obama in Indonesia:  I have now spent over twenty years of my life here in Southeast Asia, am well versed with the culture and speak the language.  With regards to Obama's Indonesian past, I now find myself intrigued to find out more about Obama and his life in Indonesia.
Part 2  Part 3

Darura:  "Darura" in Arabic means "necessity."  The Arabs and Muslims understand this idea.  "Necessity" can justify even violating explicit prohibitions.  You may, if starving, eat pork, according to some.  You may, if you need to protect the faith, lie to Infidels — lie about Islam itself, lie about your own belief in Islam.

al-Taqiyya:  The word "al-Taqiyya" literally means:  "Concealing or disguising one's beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies at a time of imminent danger, whether now or later in time, to save oneself from physical and/or mental injury."  A one-word translation would be "Dissimulation."

The Art of Al-taqiyya:  Al-taqiyya is a word used for the practice of Muslims blatantly lying to non-Muslims.  Muslims consider the act of Al-taqiyya or lying to non-Muslims to be a good work.  Especially if it helps support the war against the infidel.  In case you've forgotten, you are the infidel, so am I, so is each and every American who is not muslim.

Obama Steers Clear of Michigan Muslims He May Need to Win State.  Muslim- and Arab-Americans represent 4 percent of the vote in Michigan, a battleground in this year's election.  Yet Obama, who has held 13 events in the state during the presidential campaign, hasn't visited a mosque or met with Muslim leaders.

LA Times' Glowing Coverage Of Obama In Full Throttle.  All Indonesian students are required to study religion at school and a young Barry Soetoro, being a Muslim, would have been required to study Islam daily in school.  He would have been taught to read and write Arabic, to recite his prayers properly, to read and recite from the Quran and to study the laws of Islam.  Obama attended two schools in Indonesia and in both he was enrolled as a Muslim — but — was he a practicing Muslim?  The evidence seems to show that both Ann Dunham and her husband Lolo were devout Muslims themselves and they raised their son as such.

Barack Obama's Muslim religion — again.  So why won't Barry just fess up (he was known as Barry Soetoro in Indonesia) and admit he was a Muslim and let the truth wash away his veneer of lies?  No one will hate him for it.  No one really cares except his campaign operation.  And him.  But the longer he keeps denying the truth about his past the more people will remain interested.

Opposing viewpoint: Poll:  1 in 10 Get Obama's Religion Wrong.  One in 10 voters believes Barack Obama is Muslim, a mistaken impression that lingers across party lines, a poll showed Wednesday.  Fourteen percent of Republicans, 10 percent of Democrats and 8 percent of independents mistakenly think he is Muslim, according to a survey by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center.

The Editor says... Not so fast.  What if they are not mistaken?  Maybe 1 out of 10 are right!

READ THIS: Is Barack Obama a Muslim wolf in Christian wool?  The accumulated research indicates that Obama was in his childhood a devout Muslim, the son of a devout Muslim, the step-son of a devout Muslim and the grandson and namesake ("Hussein") of a devout Muslim.  He was registered in school as a Muslim and demonstrated his ability to chant praise to Allah in impressive Arab-accented tones even as an adult.  Just as he has not disavowed his "uncle" Jeremiah [Wright], neither has he disavowed his Muslim faith that he was born into, raised with, celebrated and never abandoned.  He just covered it over with a thin veneer of his own self-styled "Christianity."

Obama and apostasy from Islam:  Barack Obama was born to Muslim father, married to an American atheist.  His father's religion is the reason both his first and middle names, Barack and Hussein, are Islamic in origin.  According to Islamic scripture, one born to a Muslim father is a Muslim.  Forever.  Because according to Muslim law and tradition, the penalty for leaving the faith is death.  Today, Barack Obama proclaims his adherence to the Christian faith.  This would seem to make him a potential target for death, according to at least the more militant adherents of Sharia law.  Apostasy is a capital offense in several Muslim countries.

Can a past of Islam change the path to president for Obama?  Although Sen. Barack Obama is a Christian, his childhood and family connections to Islam are beginning to complicate his presidential ambitions.  The Illinois Democrat spent much of last week refuting unfounded reports that he had been educated in a madrassa, or radical Islamic school, when he lived in Indonesia as a boy.  "The Indonesian school Obama attended in Jakarta is a public school that is not and never has been a Madrassa," said a statement put out by the senator's staff.

Also waiting on a nearby sidetrack... Farrakhan:  Stick With Obama.  The issue arose Sunday [2/24/2008], when Farrakhan praised Obama before a large Nation of Islam gathering, even comparing him to the religion's founder, Wallace D. Fard Muhammad, who Farrakhan claims also had a white mother and black father.  "A black man with a white mother became a savior to us," Farrakhan said Sunday.  "A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall."  The Obama campaign moved quickly to distance itself from Farrakhan.

Obama's Truthiness About Farrakhan:  The question was about Farrakhan as a package deal.  Did Obama accept his support?  Did Obama reject his support?  So far, no answer.  And this was incredible.  Before a national audience, Obama, whose very candidacy has come to symbolize a promise of "post-racial" "unity" in America, failed to reject the support of arguably the most racist and divisive figure in America.

Did someone mention Louis Farrakhan?

Terrorist Fundraisers for Obama.  Two years ago, Hatem El-Hady was the chairman of the Toledo, Ohio-based Islamic charity, Kindhearts, which was closed by the US government in February 2006 for terrorist fundraising and all its assets frozen.  Today, El-Hady has redirected his fundraising efforts for his newest cause — Barack Obama for President.  El-Hady has his own dedicated page on Barack Obama's official website, chronicling his fundraising on behalf of the Democratic Party presidential candidate.

President Apostate?  As the son of the Muslim father, Senator Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law as it is universally understood.  It makes no difference that, as Senator Obama has written, his father said he renounced his religion.  Likewise, under Muslim law based on the Koran his mother's Christian background is irrelevant. ... At the very least, that would complicate the security planning of state visits by President Obama to Muslim countries, because the very act of protecting him would be sinful for Islamic security guards.

This article was apparently written by a Muslim. Barack Obama — Muslim apostate?  Osama bin Laden must be chuckling in his safe house.  After all, the 2008 campaign could very well give Al Qaeda the ultimate propaganda tool:  President Barack Hussein Obama, Muslim apostate.  The fact that Senator Obama — the son of a Muslim father — insists he was never a Muslim before becoming Christian is irrelevant to bin Laden.  In bin Laden's eyes, Obama is a murtad fitri, the worst type of apostate, because he was blessed by Allah to be born into the true faith of Islam.

Obama garb
Obama Wore Muslim Garb During Kenya Trip.  The resident "experts" at Free Republic are pronouncing this a photoshopped fake.  But, oddly enough, there are photographs of Mr. Obama during his (taxpayer funded) trip to Kenya in August 2006, where he is wearing what would appear to be the same red shirt, khaki pants and wristwatch.

Update: Obama In Muslim Garb Is An AP Photograph.  A photograph circulating in the Internet of Democratic Sen. Barack Obama dressed in traditional local garments during a visit to Kenya in 2006 is causing a dustup in the presidential campaign over what constitutes a smear.  The Associated Press photograph portrays Obama wearing a white turban and a wraparound white robe presented to him by elders in Wajir, in northeastern Kenya.

Please note this much earlier article: WHO provides efforts to rehabilitate Ethiopian people.  U.S. Senator Barack Obama, right, is dressed as a Somali Elder by Sheikh Mahmed Hassan, left, during his visit to Wajir, a rural area in northeastern Kenya, near the borders with Somalia and Ethiopia.  The area is at the epicenter of a severe drought that has hit the Horn of Africa region, after erratic and insufficient rains during the April-June season.

Obama and the giant blogosphere conspiracy.  His father was a Muslim, as was his stepfather.  His grandfather was a Muslim convert.  His wider family appear to have been largely devout Muslims.  Yes, we only know about Obama's early years as a Muslim; and yes, twenty years ago he became a Christian.  The issue, however, is why he has been less than candid about his early background and his family.  Indeed, he appears to have actively deceived the public about it.  That is why the blogosphere is so exercised about it.

The Editor says... Personally, I'm not convinced that "twenty years ago he became a Christian" if the only evidence of his conversion is that he joined Jeremiah Wright's institute of victimology.

Malik Obama confirms his half-brother Barack grew up a Muslim.  Apparently the Obamas of Kenya have been reading those scurrilous emails to which Barack likes to refer, because they have no doubt — contrary to the claims of the Obama campaign, that the presidential candidate was raised a Moslem.  They take that as a given.  As the Jerusalem Post reports, "Barack Obama's half brother Malik said Thursday that if elected his brother will be a good president for the Jewish people, despite his Muslim background.

Confirmed:  Barack Obama Practiced Islam.  All this matters, for if Obama once was a Muslim, he is now what Islamic law calls a murtadd (apostate), an ex-Muslim converted to another religion who must be executed.  Were he elected president of the United States, this status, clearly, would have large potential implications for his relationship with the Muslim world.  In sum:  Obama was an irregularly practicing Muslim who rarely or occasionally prayed with his step-father in a mosque.  This precisely substantiates my statement that he "for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian step-father."

Obama anti-smear site:  'He was never a Muslim'.  One of the main issues addressed by Obama's "Fight the Smears" site is the contention the Illinois senators was once a Muslim.  "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian," states the site.  But as WND reported, public records in Indonesia listed Obama as a Muslim during his early years, and a number of childhood friends claimed to the media Obama was once a mosque-attending Muslim.

Obama takes on the Great Global Blogosphere Conspiracy.  [Scroll down]  We are entitled therefore to ask whether the Muslim world supports him because it believes he is still a Muslim.  We are entitled to ask precisely when he stopped being a Muslim, and why.  Did Obama embrace Christianity as a tactical manoeuvre to get himself elected?  Why indeed has he dissembled about his family background if not for that end?  These multiple known deceptions by someone who may become President of the United States are deeply alarming.

Bocah Negro Gemuk Itu Rajin Ke Mushala.  Barry dulu memang beragama Islam.  Ayah kandungnya, Barack Husein Obama adalah seorang muslim ahli ekonomi asal Kenya.  Sebelum menikah dengan Ann Dunham, Husein Obama telah menikah dengan orang Kenya dan mendapat keturunan tujuh anak.  Semua saudara sebapak Barry ini beragama Islam.

Translation:  "Barry was previously quite religious Islam.  His birth father, Barack Husein Obama was the Muslim economist from Kenya.  Before marrying Ann Dunham, Husein Obama married Kenyans and produced seven children.  All the relatives a Barry's father were religious Islam."

Obama seen as a Muslim overseas.  Americans believe that Barack Obama has every right to become a Christian as an adult and proclaim his faith in Jesus Christ.  Americans understand that true religious identity depends on the faith one accepts.  But we deceive ourselves if we believe the rest of the world thinks this way.  The Muslim world sees it differently.  A baby born to a Muslim father is a Muslim.  One who leaves Islam for another faith is an apostate.  It's scriptural.

Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood:  As Barack Obama's candidacy comes under increasing scrutiny, his account of his religious upbringing deserves careful attention for what it tells us about the candidate's integrity.  Obama asserted in December, "I've always been a Christian," and he has adamantly denied ever having been a Muslim.  "The only connection I've had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father's side came from that country [Kenya].  But I've never practiced Islam." … "Always" and "never" leave little room for equivocation.

Opposing viewpoint — from Al-Jazeera: Obama's "Muslim identity" — An asset for Iraq exit strategy.  Yes, Barak Obama is not a Muslim.  On the contrary, he has repeatedly asserted that he is a Christian in response to his opponents' attempts to portray him as a Muslim (hence kind of a Manchurian candidate for Muslims or as a terrorist sympathizer). … Having so far quieted such rumors of his putative Muslim identity, it would appear that there is no chance that Obama will own up to any aspect of his Muslim heritage or exposure to Muslim religion, culture and people.

Barack Obama's Muslim outreach director quits.  An attorney who volunteered to help Barack Obama improve his relationship with Muslim and Arab-Americans has resigned from the campaign amid questions about his connection to a fundamentalist imam.  Mazen Asbahi started as the campaign's outreach coordinator on July 26, and he resigned in a letter to the campaign Monday [8/4/2008].

Obama's Muslim Affairs Advisor Resigns.  Barack Obama's Muslim Affairs adviser, Chicago lawyer Mazen Asbahi, has resigned after an internet newsletter wrote about his stint on the board of an Islamic investment fund and his involvement in various Islamic groups.

'Muslim bashers' hit for resignation.  America's largest Islamic civil liberties group on Wednesday defended Sen. Barack Obama after the Democratic presidential candidate's Muslim-outreach coordinator resigned because of a brief association with a suspected Muslim extremist.

Obama's Islamist Problem:  The question is why would Barak Obama's campaign — which has prevented Muslim women wearing headcoverings from being in the background of photographs with the candidate and which recently fired a Muslim-outreach coordinator who had ties to another unindicted HLF co-conspirator — allow itself to be put in such company?  Presumably, the response will be one heard from the Bush administration:  ISNA is a large, "mainstream" Muslim-American organization that is an appropriate vehicle for outreach to that community.

Obama's Muslim Connection Won't Go Away.  Obama has denied he is a Muslim or ever was a practicing Muslim.  The basis of the "rumor" germinates with Obama's father, who was a Muslim, though Obama claims he was non-practicing.  Adding to the mix is Obama's full name, Barack Hussein Obama, which is an Arabic name. ... Reports dating back as far as early 2007 held that Obama was educated at a radical Islamic school in Indonesia.  Press accounts revealed that in fact, Obama first attended a Catholic school for almost three years.  However, his mother registered him in the school as a Muslim.

Obama Adviser Meets With Syria.  Tony Badran, an expert on Lebanon and Syria for the Defense of Democracies, was not surprised [Daniel] Kurtzer was meeting with the Syrians.  He likened the meeting to other informal lobbying efforts done on Syria's behalf.  "It's not a secret that the Syrians are openly banking on Barack Obama," Badran told the Sun.

Top 5 Pitfalls for Citizen O:  Die-hard Democrats love the idea that their candidate is so global that he's the very embodiment of America's melting pot.  But so varied are Obama's roots that questions persist about whether he is Muslim and if he's really even American.

I would never say 'my Buddhist faith'.  I am a Christian.  If I were in an interview or otherwise, I would never even think of saying "my Buddhist faith" or "my New Age faith" or "my Episcopalian faith."  I am none of these.  I have never intended to be one of these.  I never plan on being one of these.  I have never thought of myself under these labels.  Therefore, I would never let slip out of lips any such confession.  Yet B. Hussein did just that.  He said "my Muslim faith."

Obama's verbal slip fuels his critics.  Sen. Barack Obama's foes seized Sunday upon a brief slip of the tongue, when the Democratic presidential nominee was outlining his Christianity but accidentally said, "my Muslim faith."  The three words — immediately corrected — were during an exchange with ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week," when he was trying to criticize the quiet smear campaign suggesting he is a Muslim.

In stunning slip on national TV, Obama refers to "my muslim faith".  In one of the most astonishing gaffes in American political history, in a national televised interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulus, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama referred to "my muslim faith," confirming what researchers and political opponents have been claiming.  While Stephanopoulus several seconds later tried to correct him, saying "Christian faith," it was too late.  The damage was done.

Obama's Childhood:  Praying to Saints and Bowing in Mosques.  In his childhood, Obama was registered as a Muslim and bowed toward a mosque on Fridays while praying to a Catholic saint on other days, according to a 2007 report in The Los Angeles Times.  Obama's chief spokesman, Robert Gibbs, was careful in an earlier statement to emphasize that he was raised in a secular household in Indonesia by his stepfather and mother.

Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes:  How do Muslims see Barack Hussein Obama?  They have three choices:  either as he presents himself — someone who has "never been a Muslim" and has "always been a Christian"; or as a fellow Muslim; or as an apostate from Islam.  Reports suggests that while Americans generally view the Democratic candidate having had no religion before converting at Reverend Jeremiah Wrights's hands at age 27, Muslims the world over rarely see him as Christian but usually as either Muslim or ex-Muslim.

Strange case of Obama birth record.  The question is:  Where there's smoke is there fire, or just a smokescreen?  Barack Obama said to George Stephanopoulos, "John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith..." on ABC's "This Week."  The Obamas have an odd practice of not giving their daughters birthday gifts — birthday gifts are forbidden under Shariah law.  Mr. Obama is not a stupid man.  He misspoke and said there are 57 American states.  There are 57 states in the Organization of the Islamic Conference.

Can Obama Win the "Values Voter?"  A sizable number of Americans suspect Obama is lying about Islamic roots.  A Newsweek poll in June found that 12 percent of voters are convinced Obama is a Muslim, and one-in-four believe he was raised a Muslim.  Such thinking has intensified with Jerome Corsi's bestselling book and with research by Islam observers like Daniel Pipes — who, though he accepts that Obama is today a Christian, says Obama is "lying" when he denies he was never a Muslim.  Additional oddities continue to surface, such as YouTube video in which Moammar Kaddafi is said to describe Obama as a fellow Muslim.

Apparently the Muslims believe Obama is a Muslim. My Muslim President Obama.  I know President Obama is not Muslim, but I am tempted nevertheless to think that he is, as are most Muslims I know.  In a very unscientific oral poll, ranging from family members to Muslim acquaintances, many of us feel, just as African-Americans did for the non-black but culturally leaning African-American President Bill Clinton, that we have our first American Muslim president in Barack Hussein Obama.

Suddenly Obama has Muslim roots.  During the U.S presidential campaign, Barack Obama's handlers vigourously pointed out his Christian faith whenever the misconception arose he may be Muslim (even though the politically correct response should have been his religion doesn't matter). ... Once elected, however, he personally insisted on his middle name being spoken at his swearing-in ceremony.  And now — in a gesture to the Muslim world — he has not only granted the first sit-down interview of his presidency to a pan-Arab television network, but uses the occasion to gush about his Muslim ties.

Obama unable to shake Muslim myth.  In a series of four surveys conducted during the last year, 12 percent consistently said the president is a Muslim.  The number of evangelical Protestants with that belief — 19 percent — also has remained unchanged.  The same is true for Republicans:  17 percent said Mr. Obama was Muslim in 2008, as they do now.  Among blacks, 6 percent say he is Muslim, down from 10 percent.  Among Democrats, the number is 7 percent, down from 9 percent.  Less than half of Americans — 48 percent — say Mr. Obama is a Christian, down from 51 percent.  Thirty-five percent don't know what religion he is; no one classified him as an atheist.

11% of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim.  A poll conducted by Pew Research in March shows that over one in 10 Americans still believe President Barack Obama is a Muslim.  That number is only slightly lower than the results of a poll conducted by Pew last October.  White evangelical Protestants (19%) and Republicans (17%) are among the most likely to view Obama as a Muslim, according to the poll.

Obama highlights his Muslim roots in Turkey speech.  President Barack Obama launched a major outreach initiative to Islam on Monday [4/7/2009], urging Muslims to join America in fighting common enemies.  And signaling the strategic importance of the U.S. alliance with this majority-Muslim country, the president made a sharp retreat from a campaign promise to press Turkey on the issue of Armenian genocide.  "Let me say this as clearly as I can:  The United States is not at war with Islam," Obama said.  "In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical in rolling back a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject."

Obama sells himself to sell U.S..  During his presidential campaign, Barack Hussein Obama rarely made an appearance.  He spoke little of his childhood in Indonesia, or his Muslim relatives.  He battled rumors that he is Muslim.  He struggled to appear not as somehow exotic but as the everyman.  But as he embarks on a new campaign to win over the Muslim world, Obama is calling attention to the nontraditional aspects of his upbringing like never before...

The Emergence of President Obama's Muslim Roots.  Given widespread unease and prejudice against Muslims among Americans, especially in the wake of 9/11, the Obama campaign was perhaps understandably very sensitive during the primaries and general election to downplay the candidate's Muslim roots. ... Since the election, however, with the threat of the rumors at least somewhat abated, the White House has been increasingly forthcoming about the president's roots.  Especially when reaching out to the Muslim world.

Obama Nation's Low View of Christianity:  Over the past three years, Obama has made it his business to insist that "we are no longer a Christian nation."  He has said it in many places, here and abroad. ... During the presidential campaign, the media pounced on anyone who inquired into Obama's Muslim upbringing in Indonesia, his two Muslim fathers or his later 20-year attendance at radical pastor Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.  Now, his Muslim roots are touted as an asset.  No one can say for sure what Obama actually believes, since only God can know the human heart.  So we are left examining his words and actions.

America's first Muslim president?.  With Mr. Obama's unbelievably ballyhooed address in Cairo Thursday [6/4/2009] to what he calls "the Muslim world" (hereafter known as "the Speech"), there is mounting evidence that the president not only identifies with Muslims, but actually may still be one himself.  Consider the following indicators:  Mr. Obama referred four times in his speech to "the Holy Koran."  Non-Muslims — even pandering ones — generally don't use that Islamic formulation.

The ISNA Conference.  Last year I attended the ISNA Conference in Ohio. There were an estimated 30,000 plus Muslims who attended the conference ... There were hundreds of vendors, and since the conference was being held only a couple of months before the 2008 Presidential Election, there was an enormous outpouring of support for Barack Obama.  Non profit organizations are not supposed to favor any certain political candidate, of course.  In 2008 ISNA had several booths with anti-American slogans on shirts, along with pro-Hamas, pro-Palestinian, and anti-Israel garments.  In addition Barack Hussein Obama material was in abundance.

Obama Bows and Sells Out to Saudi Royals.  [Obama's] speech in Cairo was like a coming out announcement by a Muslim debutante.  He said about himself all the things no one else was allowed to say about him before the election when some Americans may have had reservations about a president so steeped in Islamic culture.

Suborned in the U.S.A.  [Scroll down slowly]  The aforementioned Indonesian interval in Obama's childhood is instructive.  Obama and the media worked in tireless harmony to refute any indication that he had ever been a Muslim.  It's now apparent, however, not only that he was raised as a Muslim while living for four years in the world's most populous Islamic country, but that he very likely became a naturalized citizen of Indonesia. ... Under Indonesian law, adoption before the age of six by an Indonesian male qualified a child for citizenship. ... Obama attended Indonesian elementary schools, which, in Suharto's police state, were generally reserved for citizens (and students were required to carry identity cards that matched student registration information).  The records of the Catholic school Obama/Soetoro attended for three years identify him as a citizen of Indonesia.  Thus Obama probably obtained Indonesian citizenship through his adoption by Soetoro in Hawaii. ... In any event, the records of the Catholic school and the public school Obama attended during his last year in Indonesia identify him as a Muslim.

Who?  Perhaps the president is too cowed by the political-correctness crowd or too personally uncomfortable to name our enemy.  Apparently our commander-in-chief can't quite get out the words "Islamic fundamentalists" or "Islamic fascists" or "Islamic" anything.  This is a very, very bad sign.

Obama's Cowardly Fort Hood Speech.  [Scroll down]  At no point during his speech did he mutter any words that describe the enemy we continue to face.  He spoke vaguely of "twisted logic" and "extremists", but failed to point the finger directly at Islam.  If we didn't know any better, we wouldn't have a clue who or what he was talking about.

Ignoring Infiltration.  [Scroll down]  Obama has confronted the crisis with yet another serving of Hope and Change rhetoric.  We shouldn't "jump to conclusions," says O., giving no notion of what those conclusions might be.  He goes on to praise the "diversity" of the armed forces, as if the fact that Hasan the Assassin's victims came from different backgrounds somehow makes things better.

Report:  Obama said 'I Am a Muslim'.  "The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim."  That was the claim of Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit, as reported in the May 2010 issue of Israel Today.  According to journalist Avi Lipkin, Gheit appeared on Nile TV's "Round Table Show" in January, on which he said that "he had had a one-on-one meeting with Obama who swore to him that he was a Moslem, the son of a Moslem father and step-son of Moslem step-father, that his half-brothers in Kenya were Moslems, and that he was loyal to the Moslem agenda."

Islam:  Antithetical to Religious Freedom.  The religious allegiance of Barack Hussein Obama has been the subject of intense debate across the United States.  Is Obama, who was raised a Muslim, a committed Muslim or a Christian convert?  A Harris Poll conducted in March of 2010, revealed that fully 57% of all Republicans and 32% of Americans overall believe that Obama is a Muslim.  In 2008, a University of Texas survey found that 23% of Texans were convinced that Barack Obama is a Muslim.

Obama The Muslim.  President Obama says there is nothing more beautiful than the Muslim call to prayer in the evening.  He says that the United States was not founded as a Christian nation.  Obama's father and step-father were Muslims and he spent his childhood living in a Muslim country where his school enrollment records say his religion is Islam.  As President of the United States he genuflects to the Muslim King of Saudi Arabia but not the Christian Queen of England.  He thumbs his nose at America's friends and bows to its enemies.  In short, Obama quacks like a Muslim, waddles like a Muslim and acts like a Muslim, so is he a Muslim?

The First Un-American President.  "As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country." — Barack Hussein Obama, spoken at a White House dinner to celebrate the beginning of Ramadan! ... This statement regarding the defiling of Ground Zero, favoring a mosque where the same religion that spawned the 9/11 killers would be preached, may finally convince the deniers that Obama is and always has been a Muslim.

More about the proposed Ground Zero mosque and Obama's active endorsement thereof.

President Obama:  Muslim Missionary?  President Obama is not just rebooting America's image in the Muslim world.  He's deepening and expanding Islamic belief, practice and culture around the world, like a Muslim missionary.

Rev. Franklin Graham:  President Obama 'born a Muslim'.  The Rev. Franklin Graham on Friday [8/20/2010] said that President Barack Obama was "born a Muslim" because the religion's "seed" is passed from the father.  Graham made the remark during an interview with CNN's John King set to air Friday night after being asked about a new Pew poll showing that 31 percent of Republicans believe the president — a Christian — is Muslim.

He's Not a Muslim!  ("Not that There's Anything Wrong with That")  So now we have a president haunted by the idea that he is really a Muslim — and not a Christian at all.  How delicious it is that his blatantly secular liberal supporters are totally impotent at fighting this battle for him — given that so many Americans take faith seriously?  And going back to Wright's Trinity Church will not help.  There will be no Jesus Cred available there.  Listen to the tapes or order the books.  You will simply find Black Liberation Theology and Marxism and so on.

Growing number of Americans believe Obama a Muslim.  There is a lot of media handwringing this morning over a poll indicating 18 percent of the American public (up from 11 percent in March, 2009) believe President Obama is a Muslim. ... None of the above journos mention the memorable moment when Obama spoke of "my Muslim faith."  Nor his striking bow before the Saudi King — the protector of Mecca and Medina.  Then there is the small matter of Obama's ditching any Christian religious observance since leaving Trinity United Church, headed by Louis Farrakhan-honoring, America-hating pastor Jeremiah Wright.

Obama Akbar.  The media is all worked up over a poll that shows the majority of Americans don't think Obama is a Christians and nearly a [quarter] of Americans think that Obama is a Muslim. ... In short, Obama's family on his father's side is Muslim.  He grew up with a Muslim stepfather in a Muslim country.  Then he went to Trinity Church and found a mentor there in the form of Jeremiah Wright.  Wright was a former Black Muslim, his sermons still sound more Muslim than Christian, with their rantings about America, and obvious bigotry.  Obama's church was Muslim influenced, which may have attracted him to it and to Wright.  Take all this together, and it's not too surprising why some people would have the perception that Obama is Muslim, in part or in whole.

Barack Obama:  Christian In Name Only (CINO)?  Consider Obama's actions since 1/20/09:
 •  Immediately called for shut down of GITMO.
 •  Called for terrorists to be tried by civilian juries, rather than military, including Miranda rights and other rights conferred on citizens.
 •  Once in office, rushed off to a Muslim nation to deliver a speech in which he declared that America is "not" a Christian nation.
 •  Changed policy toward Israel such that that nation is treated like a gang of terrorists.
 •  Supports, or at least does not oppose, the mosque at Ground Zero.

Americans think Obama is Islamic for a reason. The first presumed Muslim president.  Hard on the heels of the Ground Zero Mosque controversy, significant numbers of Americans think President Obama is a Muslim.  The uncomfortable fact for the White House is the more the American people get to know Mr. Obama, the more they think he is a follower of Islam.

Obama has himself to blame for Muslim problem.  [Scroll down]  The number of people who say they don't know Obama's religion is growing, from 32 percent back then to 43 percent today.  The White House blames the situation on a "misinformation campaign" from Obama's opponents.  But Obama and his aides might also blame themselves for the way they've handled the Muslim issue over the years.

Obama's choice:  Boy Scouts or Islam.  President Obama couldn't bring himself to observe the National Day of Prayer or spend time with the Boy Scouts of America, but God forbid, he couldn't miss the Muslim Iftar Ramadan dinner, or pass up a chance to praise an Islamic center a stone's throw away from Ground Zero.  He later backed down — a bit.  One has to wonder exactly who is this Barack Obama?

Obama's Jihad.  Obama's Islamophilia has manifested itself in ways big and small?in his unflinching antagonism toward Israel and his bowing to Muslim autocrats; in his 2007 comment that the Muslim call to prayer is "one of the prettiest sounds on earth," in his hosting of a Ramadan dinner at the White House while cancelling National Day of Prayer events at the White House.  But it is perhaps most evident in what has become clear about Obama's view of religious freedom:  that God rarely has a place in the public square unless that god is called Allah.

The Truth about Obama's Muslim 'Faith'.  In reality, calling Obama a "Muslim" gives him too much credit.  As G.K. Chesterton once said, "We call a man a bigot or a slave of dogma because he is a thinker who has thought thoroughly and to a definite end."  The truth, however, is that few people have thought thoroughly and to a definite end.  And Obama is no exception.  He hasn't even thought matters through enough to understand the folly of statism.  Even more to the point, he is a moral relativist, a position the antithesis of any absolutist faith.

Is Barack Obama a Muslim?  [Obama] proselytizes for Islamic goals and dreams like a member of the faithful.  He routinely cites his background to establish his Islamic bona fides with the Muslim world.  "I am a Christian, but my father came from a Kenyan family that includes generations of Muslims," he told a Muslim audience in Cairo.  "As a boy, I spent several years in Indonesia and heard the call of the azaan at the break of dawn and the fall of dusk. ... I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed."  This is language that falls short of embracing Islam as a believer, but is geared toward telling the Muslim world, "I am on your side."

Now, why would 20% of Americans think Obama is a Muslim?  First, there was the premier interview as president to the foreign press, which Obama gave to an Arab television network.  Then there was the "suck up to Islam" speech the president gave in Cairo, in which he purely made up Muslim history to make Islamists feel good.  Throw in the obsequious bow to the Saudi king.  Throw in Obama's claim on international television that America is "not a Christian nation," but is indeed "one of the largest Muslim nations" (a claim which relied on more faulty Obama arithmetic), and it would take a nitwit not to question the president's credibility on every issue, including his religion.

Michelle Obama made dusk visit to Great Mosque of Granada during Spanish trip.  While President Barack Obama was "forcefully" endorsing the Ground Zero Mosque, Michelle Obama was paying homage with her presence to the Great Mosque at Granada, which overlooks what was once Islam's most important outpost in Europe, the Alhambra palace in Granada.

Barack Obama Vs. Majority Public Opinion.  The mosque raises another festering issue.  The Pew Research Center reports that 18% (one in five Americans) think Obama is a Muslim, and Time magazine puts that figure at 24%.  The number of people who think Obama is a Christian is in a free fall, and 43% don't know his religion.  Rush Limbaugh reminded us of Obama's statement quoted in the New York Times that the Muslim call to prayer is "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth" and that he recited it with a first-rate Arabic accent.  The translation of the prayer call is "Allah is supreme.  Allah is supreme.  Allah is supreme.  I witness that there is no god but Allah."

Obama Sends $6 Million to Global Muslim Sites.  President Barack Obama's faith may not be clearly identifiable, but he's willing to usurp the U.S. Constitutional principle of a strict separation of church and state when it comes to using American taxpayer dollars to restore Muslim holy places.

So Is He a Christian?  [Scroll down]  [Obama] said in his Cairo speech to the Muslim world that Islam is a revealed religion. ... Words have meaning, and if Obama believes Islam was revealed, then he most certainly believes it was revealed by God.  If it was revealed by God more than 600 years after Christ was on earth and contains beliefs wholly inconsistent with doctrinal Christianity — such as that Christ was not God, but a mere prophet — then, in that essential particular, it cannot possibly be reconciled with Christianity.  If Obama truly believes Islam was revealed by God, I can't fathom how he could be a believing Christian.  I don't know that Obama is not a Christian, but I am dubious.

A Relativist, Wrapped in a Muslim, Inside an Agnostic.  Why does a significant chunk of the American electorate think Obama is a Muslim?  Let's count some of the reasons:  he speaks of his "Muslim roots," says he hails from "generations of Muslims," was born to a line of Muslim males and given by them an Arabic name, went to a Muslim school in Islamic Indonesia, speaks glowingly of Islam whenever he gets the chance, holds a Ramadan dinner in the White House, tells his NASA head to turn the space agency into a Muslim outreach program, and last but not least insults doctrinal Christians routinely.

United States Declares War on Arizona, Literally.  [Scroll down]  If that man isn't a Muslim, it sure appears that he would like to be.  I am not in possession of any secret information that proves he's of that faith; but where he lived in Indonesia which is, I believe, almost totally Muslim, and went to a school where you had to be a Muslim to attend, sort of gives me the idea that he is a Muslim.  Don't know about [Ann Coulter], but I'd bet the ranch on it.

Obama sends greeting on Muslim holiday.  President Barack Obama is sending best wishes to Muslims worldwide as they celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy month of fasting and prayer known as Ramadan.

Obama Sends Best Wishes to Muslims for Eid-al-Fitr.  U.S. President Barack Obama has sent best wishes to Muslims worldwide on the occasion of Eid-al-Fitr, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.  In a statement Thursday, President Obama said the holiday is a time of self-reflection, focusing on values that Muslims and people of all faiths share.  Mr. Obama said this year's Eid is also an occasion to reflect on the importance of religious tolerance.

Barack Obama joined Muslim prayers at school, teacher says.  As a schoolboy in Jakarta, Barack Obama attended Muslim prayer sessions with his classmates against the wishes of his mother.  The US President's former grade three teacher said that Mr Obama — who was known as "Barry" when he attended the Menteng One school in Jakarta — studied the Koran and went to classes on Islam, despite the objections of Ann Dunham, a Catholic.

The Limits of Obama's Rhetoric.  In response to public concerns that he is Muslim, Mr. Obama has professed his Christianity.  Most Americans are willing to accept such professions, but some still believe him to be a Muslim, based at least in part on his obvious partiality to Muslims and Muslim causes.  There is no doubt that Mr. Obama was born to a Muslim father, and during his childhood, raised as a Muslim in a Muslim nation.  To observant Muslims, the child of a Muslim father is a Muslim.  Unlike Christians, who may leave a given faith and adopt another — or none at all — with few or no consequences, Islam is not so forgiving.  A Muslim who leaves the faith is an apostate fit for death.  Most Muslims will not try to kill those who leave their faith, but a great many will.  To any truly observant Muslim, by his own public admission, Mr. Obama is an apostate Muslim.

Obama's anti-Israel speech should surpise no one.  The citizens of the United States elected a President who attended a strict Muslim madrassa (parochial school) for two years.  Our current Commander-in Chief, while an impressionable young boy between 6 and 10 years old, bowed down toward Mecca five times a day while praying to Allah.  He studied the Koran, including Sura 7:166, Sura 2:65, and Sura 5:60 and its repeated calls for the transformation of Jews into apes and swine.  Barry Soetoro was indoctrinated, as were millions of young Muslim boys, in the same anti-Semitism that has always been taught in the Muslim madrassa's for the past thousand years.  Let's be very clear, Barry Obama surrounds himself with anti-Semitic advisors who relish the elimination of the Jewish state, attended a church for 20 years where the clergy spewed anti-Semitic hate, and now bows, scrapes and sends millions of US taxpayer dollars to Muslim countries and terrorist groups such as Hamas, who are the most lethal anti-Semites on the planet.

Obama's Mounting Media Manipulation.  [Scroll down]  Even if Obama had paid attention to Al Jazeera's content, it might not have seemed much different from what he had heard for much of his life from his closest mentors.  It apparently never struck him as unusual or troubling when his pastor gloated over the 9/11 attacks as well-deserved payback, or when his church newsletter praised Hamas and supported Hezb'allah.  He had no hesitation extolling Rashid Khalidi as a valuable Mideast advisor, even as Khalidi openly endorsed massacring Israeli soldiers during peacetime — the same thing Nidal Hassan did to US soldiers at Fort Hood.

Obama honors Muslim holiday.  President Obama is extending best wishes for Eid al-Adha, the Muslim festival of sacrifice.  In a White House statement, the president and first lady Michelle Obama also congratulated the millions of Muslims who are performing the annual hajj pilgrimage.

"Soebarkah" most likely name given to Obama upon adoption by Indonesian Stepfather.  [Q]:  Do they usually change the name when there's an adoption by an Indonesian man?  [A]:  Sometimes they do; sometimes they don't.  But I believe most of the time they probably do.  So based on what I have heard or read that he might have been adopted, I think that must be the name given to him at the time of adoption.  Now that is just one name, because Indonesian Muslims don't usually have a surname; they only go by one name.

Congress Knows About His Deceit Yet Allows Him to Remain in the White House.  [I]t is unbelievable that a 'Christian' (and an admitted adult 'apostate' of Islam) would bow to Muslim Kings, would cancel the National day of prayer, would host dinners at the White House for Muslims only, would have Muslims (whose political movement goals are the replacement of our Supreme Law with Sharia law) and other domestic terrorists on his staff, and that there would not be a fatwa of death on his head (for his 'apostasy') by the Muslim world.

Project Obama: A Puppetmaster or a Puppet?  [Scroll down]  The day the Palestinian-American Major Nidal Malik Hasan shot up Fort Hood, killing 13 and wounding 30, Obama was scheduled to give another of his speeches.  As usual, the President arrived late, dawdled a while, finally launched into an interminable acknowledgement routine followed by a shout-out to an Indian chief in the audience, and only then, three minutes into his speech, nonchalantly, almost as an afterthought, mentioned the tragedy, hastily admonishing his listeners not to jump to conclusions about the motives of the assailant (true, he ecstatically shouted "Allah Akbar" as he pulled the trigger, but maybe he was a right-wing agent provocateur agitating against the religion of peace).  Any politician worth his salt would fake concern and grief.  But not Obama, who apparently doesn't see any point going to the trouble.

The coming chaos from the Obama-Soertoro playbook.  [Scroll down]  On the morning of Obama's first day in office of January 21, 2009, one of the first, if not the first phone call he made as American leader was to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.  Less than five months later, on June 4, 2009, Obama kicked off his American apology tour in a speech at Cairo University in Egypt, co-hosted by Al-Azhar University.  Obama "honored" a promise made during his presidential campaign to give a major address to Muslims from a Muslim capital during his first few months as president.  To date, Obama has not yet stepped foot in Israel, our only democratic ally in the Middle East.

Obama's military madrassas.  America's top-line military schools are supposed to be cutting-edge centers of strategic education.  But say a bad word about Islam there, and it could end your career.

The Obfuscation Factor.  [Scroll down]  The liberal establishment, which includes establishment Republicans, laughs at people who think Obama is a Muslim.  But people who think that at least engage in a reasoning process, unlike those who simply laugh.  People say something like this to themselves:  the laughers simply take Obama's word for his Christianity, but we know what that is worth.  He says that he attended church for twenty years, but says that he did not notice that the preacher was a raging, hate-filled lunatic.  He slanders Christians who "cling" to their religion, but he bows down to Saudi princes.  He seems to think that Israel is the problem in the Middle East, which is an opinion not uncommon among Muslims.  He greets Muslims with greetings that Muslims reserve for use only among themselves.

Is Barack Obama the "Enemy from Within"?  President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim!  There, I said it.  Now I will back it up with the facts to prove it.  This can no longer be a matter of conjecture.  There simply is too much evidence.  On the surface, to be candid, it would not be a big deal that he was a Muslim, if he loved America and her allies.  But the evidence shows otherwise.  Barack Obama, in my opinion, is an enemy of not just our state, but half (or more) of the world.  To make matters worse, he's using America's might to further his Anti-Colonialism beliefs.

Obama's religion: polytheism.  So much has been made of whether Mr. Obama is a Muslim or not.  This question persists in spite of the fact that he repeatedly claims to be "Christian."  This particular conclusion on the part of many has been drawn from his extraordinary sympathies to Islamists and apparent bias that has tipped the scales toward the Muslim world and against Israel.  This is something new among U.S. presidents.

New Poll Shows Conservative Republicans Increasingly Believe Obama Is Muslim.  A new Pew Research Center poll found that the number of conservative Republicans who believe President Barack Obama religious faith is Muslim has doubled since just before the 2008 election.  Four years ago, 16 percent of self-described "conservative Republicans" identified Barack Obama as a Muslim; and today that figure has risen to 34 percent.  Among self-described "moderate" and "liberal" Republicans, however, there has been virtually no change.

Obama's Islamophilia Week.  Last week Barack Obama marked the beginning of Ramadan by saying to Muslims that the "United States continues to stand with those who seek the chance to decide their own destiny, to live free from fear and violence, and to practice their faith freely."  While he undercuts Christianity at home — under his Obamacare abortifacient/contraceptive mandate, resistant Catholic and Protestant schools, hospitals, and charities will soon face crushing fines — he never fails to tout Islam abroad.  One would think his allies at the ACLU might cringe at his lavish tributes to global Islam as a great and blameless religion and his "Iftar dinners" at the White House.  But they don't.  His undiluted enthusiasm for Islam, which amounts to a case of Islamophilia, never triggers any of the usual separation-of-church-and-state objections and anxieties from them.

Terrorist Invited To White House.  Dear Leader invited a known terrorist, Hani Nour Eldin, into the White House this past April, and this story got almost no media attention.  It's another reason why Michelle Bachmann is requesting background checks on the people inside our government who may have ties to terrorists.  By law, a terrorist cannot get a visa and come into the U.S.A., but Eldin did, and was INVITED.  Why isn't the media all over this story?

Barack H. Obama quotes effortlessly from the Koran, but not the Bible. Obama's Iftar Dinner.  Obama's politically correct spin on Islam grows more and more buffoonish. [...] He used his remarks at this year's Iftar dinner to praise Islam as a female-friendly religion.  "Indeed, you know that the Koran teaches, 'Be it man or woman, each of you is equal to the other,'" he said.  For Obama, it is the Bible, not the Koran, that reeks of dangerous patriarchy.  Obama has mocked the Book of Leviticus, Deuteronomy, and St. Paul's letters, but he would never dare question a passage in the Koran, which he regards as a holy and blameless book in no need of politically correct revision.

I don't recall Mr. Obama being this effusive about Easter or Christmas. President Obama speaks out on Eid-al-Fitr.  [Quoting Barack H. Obama:]  "On behalf of the American people, we congratulate Muslim Americans and Muslims around the world on this joyous day.  Eid Mubarak."

Jeremiah Wright can sink Obama.  [Scroll down]  Furthermore, Mr. Wright says Mr. Obama possessed an "Islamic background" and despite his conversion to Christianity has never abandoned his Muslim roots.  In short, Mr. Wright appears to be confirming what I have argued for years:  Mr. Obama is a cultural Muslim whose Christianity is deeply tied to black liberation theology — the belief that America and the West have an evil, imperialist civilization bent on oppressing the Third World.

Jeremiah Wright: I "Made It Comfortable" For Obama to Accept Christianity Without Having to Renounce Islam.  In a shocking interview yesterday [5/14/2012] on the Sean Hannity Radio Show, author Ed Klein said Barack Obama's former pastor helped Obama accept Christianity without having to renounce Islam.

Jeremiah Wright: Obama never renounced Islam.  Sean Hannity interviews Ed Klein.

Jeremiah Wright Thinks Barack Obama May Still Be A Muslim.  I've seen it advertised all over but have not read "The Amateur" by author Edward Klein yet.  However, he gave an interview to CBN on The Brody File show [and] had a stunning recitation of his 3 hour, taped interview with [...] Jeremiah Wright.

Alleged new Recordings of Jeremiah Wright cast doubt on Obama's Christianity.  In 2008, video recordings of Jeremiah Wright's sermons came closer than anything else to derailing Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Now, four years later, there appears to be audio recordings of Wright that may be damaging to Obama as well.  Those recordings, allegedly in the possession of author Edward Klein, consist of Wright telling Klein some unflattering things, to include charges that Obama attempted to silence Wright in 2008. [...] If Klein's claim is true, perhaps the best we can say about the president is that he is a 'Chrislamist,' which means he is not a Christian.  At worst, the president is feigning Christianity for political expediency so that he can remain a Muslim.

This appears to be the first hint that Barack H. Obama is about to admit (after the 2012 election) that he really is a Muslim. Ellison: 'There's Nothing Wrong With Being a Muslim'.  Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the first Muslim elected to Congress and the first African-American elected to the House from Minnesota, said Thursday [9/6/2012] that when some accuse President Barack Obama of being a Muslim, it's "as if it's something to be ashamed of or wrong," but there's really "nothing wrong with being a Muslim."

Obama: 'I have never been a Muslim'.  Asked about the religion of his childhood and youth, Mr. Obama offers contradictory answers.  He finessed a March 2004 question, "Have you always been a Christian?" by replying:  "I was raised more by my mother and my mother was Christian."  But in December 2007, he belatedly decided to give a straight answer:  "My mother was a Christian from Kansas.  I was raised by my mother.  So, I've always been a Christian."  In February 2009, however, he offered a completely different account:  "I was not raised in a particularly religious household.  I had a father who was born a Muslim but became an atheist, grandparents who were non-practicing Methodists and Baptists, and a mother who was skeptical of organized religion.  I didn't become a Christian until I moved to the South Side of Chicago after college."  He further elaborated on this answer in September 2010, saying, "I came to my Christian faith later in life."  Which is it?

The Editor says... The shifting sands of Obama's personal testimony can only indicate one thing:  Deception.  Please note that Barack H. Obama, a/k/a Barry Soetoro, was registered in an Indonesian grade school as a Muslim, and as a citizen of Indonesia.  Don't hold your breath waiting for the television news outlets to report or discuss this story.

Teachers and friends say Obama studied Koran in school.  Many pieces of evidence argue for Barack Obama having been born and raised a Muslim:  (1) Islam is a patrilineal religion:  In Islam, the father passes his faith to the children, and when a Muslim man has children with a non-Muslim woman, Islam considers those children Muslim.  Mr. Obama's grandfather and father having been Muslims — the extent of their piety matters not at all — means that in Muslim eyes, Mr. Obama was born a Muslim.  (2) Arabic forenames based on the H-S-N trilateral root:  All such names (Husayn or Hussein, Hasan, Hassan, Hassanein, Ahsan and others) are exclusively bestowed on Muslim babies.

Muslims believe Obama is one of them.  Mr. Obama's 30-year-old half-brother, George Hussein Onyango Obama, who met him twice, told an interviewer in March 2009, "He may be behaving differently due to the position he is in, but on the inside, Barack Obama is Muslim."  More generally, Muslims cannot shake the sense that under his proclaimed Christian identity, Mr. Obama truly is one of them. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, prime minister of Turkey, has said Hussein is a Muslim name.  Muslim discussions of Mr. Obama sometimes mention his middle name as a code, with no further comment needed.

Obama: 'My Muslim faith'.  He may have made faces and horsed around in Koran class, but Mr. Obama learned how to pray the salat, a form of ritual worship, in religion class.  Pak Effendi, his former teacher at Besuki, his school in Jakarta, Indonesia, recalls that he would "join the other pupils for Muslim prayers."  Praying the salat in and of itself made Mr. Obama a Muslim.  Furthermore, he still proudly retains knowledge from that long-ago class.  In March 2007, Nicholas D. Kristof of the New York Times witnessed as Mr. Obama "recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them [to Mr. Kristof] with a first-rate accent."  Mr. Obama recited not the salat itself but the adhan, the call to prayer (typically chanted from minarets).  The second and third lines of the adhan constitute the Islamic declaration of faith, the shahada, the very utterance of which makes one a Muslim.

Obama's dueling beliefs expose moral failings.  [Scroll down]  In conclusion, available evidence suggests that Mr. Obama was born and raised a Muslim and retained a Muslim identity until his late 20s.  Child to a line of Muslim males, given a Muslim name, registered as a Muslim in two Indonesian schools, he read the Koran in religion class, still recites the Islamic declaration of faith and speaks to Muslim audiences like a fellow believer. [...] The issue is that Mr. Obama has specifically and repeatedly lied about his Muslim identity.  More than any other single deception, Mr. Obama's treatment of his own religious background exposes his moral failings.

Fox News' Eric Bolling: Obama administration 'answers to the Quran first and Constitution second'.  The detention of Nakoula Bessaly Nakoula, the California filmmaker who produced an anti-Muhammad video that enraged anti-American mobs in the Middle East, aroused a national debate on the First Amendment.  On Monday's [9/17/2012] broadcast of "The Five" on the Fox News Channel, co-panelist Eric Bolling said that act represented something else:  President Barack Obama's administration holding the Quran in higher esteem than the U.S. Constitution.

Obama Rebuilds Mosques While Churches Burn.  While Christian churches are being destroyed on a near daily basis in Muslim countries throughout the world, the Obama administration is investing millions of dollars to rebuild overseas Islamic mosques and minarets.  According to the State Department, the mosque restoration program, first reported on back in 2010, is a "cultural preservation" project designed to "fight Islamic extremism by building relationships with Islamic leaders."

The consequences of Obama's love of Islam.  [Scroll down]  The only explanation for Obama's little exciting ring secret is that he is a closet Muslim and feels that he can serve Islam best if he denies his being a Muslim for the purpose of a higher aspiration:  to serve the Muslim world from the White House, in Islamic terms the higher jihad.  Obama has no problem whatsoever in lying for the sake of "hope and change" since lying about being a Muslim in a majority non-Muslim country is allowed under Islam.  Lying for the purpose of jihad in Islam is not only allowed, but an obligation to be proud of and a means to blame the enemies of Islam for one's lies.

The Benghazi Slingshot.  The Center for Security Policy panelists aren't the only thinkers to question whether this administration has an affinity for sharia.  In his article "Obama knew:  Did ideological soft spot for Sharia keep US government from protecting Benghazi consulate?," American Spectator's Jeffrey Lord suggests that the highest levels of the Obama administration are "in some fashion simpatico with a totalitarian ideology."  That "ideological soft spot" may explain why President Obama "can't," as Rep. Dana Rohrabacher declared, "utter the words 'Muslim terror attack.'"
Another low bow to radical Islam.  Barack Obama says he's a Christian. [...] But rarely has a Christian paid such obeisance to another faith and ideology.  The president's bow and scrape to Islam knows no end.
Michele Bachmann says Obama wants to 'lift up the Islamists' and allow Sharia law in America.  Representative Michele Bachmann has claimed that Barack Obama is determined 'to lift up the Islamists' and bow to their 'ultimate demand' of imposing Sharia law on America. [...] In an extended on-air conversation with conservative radio hosts Jan Markell and Eric Barger, Bachmann contended that Obama was endangering the United States and Israel by supporting radical Islamists.
Barack H. Obama drops Hussein from Inauguration Ceremony.  The Barack Hussein Obama of 2009 has been replaced in President Obama's second inaugural celebration by "Barack H. Obama."
Obama: 'I Often Search Scripture to Figure Out How I Can Be a Better Man as Well as Better President'.  "Sometimes I search scripture to determine how best to balance life as a president and as a husband and as a father.  I often search for scripture to figure out how I can be a better man as well as a better president," Obama said.
The Editor says... Notice he did not say "The Bible", he said "scripture", by which he probably refers to the Koran.  If he were a Christian, he would almost certainly have referred to "The Bible" by name.
All of President Obama's googly men.  The president clearly has a soft spot in his heart for Islam.  He once described the call to evening prayer, which he first heard as a child in a Muslim school in Indonesia, as "one of the prettiest of sounds on Earth at the sunset."
Dangerous Times.  [Scroll down]  At the UN, 57 Muslim member regimes routinely smear and slander Israel and America, with European and American acquiescence.  Brain-locked liberals around the world think this is all fine, and Obama the Messiah is beyond criticism.  Obama is all in favor of the Islamist Spring, because, whether he is Muslim or not, he is an Islamist sympathizer.  There is no reasonable doubt anymore.  This is the worst news about an American president since the rise of Stalin, who also penetrated the U.S. with his agents.  My question is whether it will spell an end to the America we have known.
Can a President Who Has Promised to 'Stand with the Muslims' Protect Americans?  The negative implications of Obama's time in office will be felt for decades, but one thing is clear.  The U.S. President who does not recognize America's exceptionalism and who has promised to stand with Muslims has been unable to keep Americans safe from Islamic terror — both at home and abroad.

Obama bows down to King Abdullah

Obama bows before King Abdullah
I Saw Something, So I'm Saying Something.  I've seen the president of the United States bow down before the Saudi king, whose country sent fifteen hijackers to topple our towers.  The reason French President Sarkozy is laughing in the photo is because he's reading the "Kick Me" sign on Obama's rump.  I've seen Obama stand before the United Nations after the jihad-crazed slaughter of four Americans in Benghazi, including our ambassador, and proclaim "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
The Seven Most Disturbing Moments So Far in Barack Obama's Presidency.  [#7] Obama bows to a Saudi King:  Had Obama spent his childhood entirely in the United States, he probably would have known that real Americans don't bow.  Unfortunately, since that's a lesson Obama hasn't learned, Americans have had to endure their President humiliating himself and by extension, the rest of the country, by servilely bowing to foreign leaders.

Obama the Reactionary.  [Scroll down]  From George Washington onward no American president has bowed to a foreign potentate, because everybody in the world knows what a deep bow means.  If you doubt that, take a look at Egyptian temple walls that show foreigner after foreigner kneeling in submission to the reigning Pharaoh.  This went on for three thousand years.  It happened in India, in China, Europe, Africa and the Americas.  Bowing is the symbolic act of submission all over the world. [...] Like all presidents, Obama was briefed on standard US diplomatic protocol.  What Obama did was therefore not an accident and it wasn't a sudden crick in his back (as a liberal friend tried to tell me).

Obama bows down to Saudi King.  I am quite certain that this is not the protocol, and is most unbecoming a President of the United States.

With bowed head and bended knee.  Has anyone ever seen Barack Obama publicly bow and bend his knee when meeting someone prior to yesterday?  I don't recall any photos of such a gesture of greeting, but I would be very happy if some of the President's defenders on the left could provide such evidence that his striking body language yesterday [4/2/2009] before the monarch of Saudi Arabia and custodian of the holy cities of Mecca and Medina was simply a habitual gesture of warmth.

Obama doubles down on the bow to the Saudi King.  The story is officially "in play" now that the White House has spoken, albeit from an anonymous source.  American citizens are implicitly asked to view the demi-prostration and decide for themselves.  The evidence simply does not support the official position of the Obama administration.

The MSM coverup of the Presidential bow before the financier of radical Islam.  You have to look really hard to find it, but the American mainstream media are glancing at the stunning Obama bow before the King of Saudi Arabia, but only for the purpose of dismissing it.

Barack takes a bow.  In a shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate, President Obama bowed to Saudi King Abdullah at the Group of 20 summit in London last week.  Mr. Obama later said in Strasbourg, France, "We have to change our behavior in showing the Muslim world greater respect."  Symbolism is important in world affairs.  By bending over to show greater respect to Islam, the U.S. president belittled the power and independence of the United States.

President Obama, King Abdullah, and the end of Israel.  During the G-20 summit in London, Barack Obama took time out for a brief meeting with King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia caught on video by two cameras, and by a still photographer, where the U.S. president bowed deeply in greeting the Saudi monarch.  No major American media paid any attention to the startling, unreciprocated bow, gesture of subservience.

A right royal bow row.  Conservative American commentators have accused Barack Obama of "grovelling" to an Arab monarch at the G20 summit in London.  A photo and video footage of the US President bowing to Saudi Arabian King Abdullah at yesterday's G20 meet-and-greet has been doing the rounds on the internet today.  Mr Obama appears to shake the King's hand and then bow from the waist while French President Nicholas Sarkozy looks on.

Obama and the King:  President Obama's tour round the world has been absolutely surreal, as he could not stop making promises he is in no position to fulfill, or apologizing for perceived American misdemeanors he is in no position to prove, never mind redress.  Surely the unforgettable highpoint of this festival of illusion was in London, when Obama encountered King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.  It's an accepted courtesy to royalty to make a little nod with the head, but film and photographs show Obama bending from the waist in a gesture of humble obeisance, as it were, acknowledging his inferior status.

A tale of two bows.  The protocol travails of Mr Obama's presidential travels are still dogging him back on American soil.  For while he proferred the Queen a deferential nod in his audience at Buckingham Palace, he appeared to deliver a full-blooded and deeply reverential half-body bow to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at the G20 summit the next day.

U.S. should bow to no one, not even a king.  The president of the United States does not bow to kings.  He is not only the chief of government, he's our head of state — the equal of any monarch.  The White House says Obama didn't bow, that he "grasped (Abdullah's) hand with two hands and he's taller than King Abdullah."  Sorry, but a videotape on YouTube doesn't quite back that up.  Obama clearly bends his body toward the Arabian monarch, and Obama doesn't grasp both the king's hands until he's standing straight up.

Obama Bows To No One, Unless You're a Saudi King.  Chances are good you haven't heard this one:  that, while in Buckingham Palace last week, milling about with G-20 leaders, the current president of the United States bowed deeply at the waist, one knee bent, on meeting the current King, so-called, of Saudi Arabia, who did not bow back.  Chances are even better you haven't seen the video.  That's because Big Media, from viewer-deprived networks to newspapers considering bailouts, have neither aired the video of the incident nor reported on it.

Liberals and Child Brides:  When I condemned President Barack Obama's deep bow to Saudi King Abdullah, I heard from many readers about President George W. Bush's hand-holding with the same personage.  "What's the difference?" demanded one reader.  Well, hand-holding (while not exactly a welcome sight between the president of the United States and any ruler of a repressive state) is at least a gesture between equals.  Bowing, on the other hand, suggests obeisance.

Obama's Alternate Reality:  You see, it all depends on what the meaning of the word "bow" is. ... Despite the widely circulated video of said event showing Obama kowtowing to some Arab dude, we are expected to believe the White House line that Obama didn't bow.  The word "bow" has thus joined ranks with the word "is" in terms of, well, a matter of definition.  Context, if you will.

Obama: A Profile in Cowardice.  Meet Barack Hussein Obama.  The man who turned his own middle name into a no-go zone during the election, only to bring it out of the closet when he trotted down to a Muslim country.  The man whose associates labeled talk about his Muslim background as racist, only to proclaim his Muslim background loudly and proudly from the podium of a Muslim country.  There's a word for a man like that.  Coward.

25 Reasons to Send the Democrats Packing in November.  [#15] The President of the United States should not bow to foreign leaders.

Bowing and Kowtowing: Is This A Foreign Policy?  We all remember, just weeks after his inauguration, that President Obama shocked millions of Americans with his low bow before King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.  Mr. Obama forgot, if he ever knew, that Americans bow to nobody.  And nobody should bow to that desert despot, Abdullah.

There's No Abe Lincoln in the Muslim Hood.  [Scroll down]  Barack Hussein Obama believes in enlightened despotism, and in the Muslim world he knows that there is only despotism without enlightenment.  That's why he bowed to the king of Saudi Arabia and Hu Jintao, the colonialist killer of Tibet and president of China.  And for good measure, Obama bowed to the figurehead emperor of Japan as well.  How's that for a big signal?  Obama has a Napoleonic personality, as we have seen in his first two years.  He does not thrive on the give-and-take of electoral democracy.

Related story: Obama is bowing out.  President Obama did it again.  Despite being head of state of the most powerful nation on the planet, he bent over to give a bow to the leader of a lesser country.  Mr. Obama's latest show of fealty was to Mexican President Felipe Calderon at the G20 Leaders Summit in Los Cabos, Mexico, on Monday [6/18/2012].  His repeated bowing to foreign politicians is conduct unbecoming a president of the United States.


Obama appears to be a Muslim sympathizer at the very least.

Obama prayer speaker comes from group feds say is linked to Hamas.  One of the religious leaders invited to address Barack Obama's inaugural prayer service Wednesday heads an Islamic group named by federal prosecutors as a co-conspirator in a terrorism-fundraising trial in Texas.  Ingrid Mattson, president of the Islamic Society of North America, is scheduled to join Christian ministers and Jewish rabbis offering prayers for the new president and his family during a service at the National Cathedral in Washington, organizers announced Friday.

The National Prayer Service and the Wahhabi Lobby:  Ingrid Mattson, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), will deliver a prayer at the National Cathedral during the National Prayer Service on January 21st. ... ISNA has close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, a radical Islamist group, and was named an un-indicted co-conspirator in U.S. v Holy Land Foundation, a case that uncovered covert financing of the terrorist group Hamas.  Since her election as ISNA president in 2006, Mattson's apologias for the radical Wahhabi sect of Islam have gained a much wider audience.

More fallout from Hamas connection to prayer service participant.  Yesterday's American Thinker piece by Winfield Myers on Ingrid Mattson, president of the Islamic Society of North America, who will be participating in the National Prayer Service at the National Cathedral on Wednesday has generated quite a bit of fallout.

What have we done to ourselves, — and why?  Many Americans have been convinced for some time that Obama is a closet Islamic.  After reading the headlines in the January 22, 2009 Fox News First 100 days of the Presidency "Obama is expected to sign 'several' executive orders Thursday [1/22/2009], directing the CIA to close secret foreign prisons and Guantanamo Bay, and limiting detention and interrogation methods" he has given more credence to these convictions.  He is apparently making it softer and easier for Islamic/Muslims to damage the United States.

Obama Gives First TV Interview To Arabic Network.  President Barack Obama gave his first formal television interview as president to an Arabic cable TV network, telling Al-Arabiya that when it comes to Middle East matters "all too often the United States starts by dictating." ... "My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy," Obama said.  "We sometimes make mistakes.  We have not been perfect."

We may have made some "mistakes":  Obama tells Muslim world.  Accepting that the US may have made some "mistakes" in the past while dealing with the Muslim world, President Barack Hussein Obama has assured them that "Americans are not your enemy" and expressed his determination to resolve the Palestinian problem and diplomatically engage with Iran.

Dancing Among Landmines — The Obama Al-Arabiya Interview.  Triangulation is a touchy art and it takes the genius of a Dick Morris cum soulless Bill Clinton to pull off such disingenuousness.  In less experienced hands it can be explosive and turn on its user.  And Obama will soon learn the dangerous game he is playing.

Obama declares US not at war with Islam.  Barack Obama, making his first visit to a Muslim nation as president, declared Monday [4/6/2009] the United States "is not and will never be at war with Islam."  Calling for a greater partnership with the Islamic world in an address to the Turkish parliament, Obama called the country an important U.S. ally in many areas, including the fight against terrorism.

He won't attend the National Day of Prayer, but... Obama to Speak at LGBT Rights Dinner.  President Obama will be the keynote speaker at the Human Rights Campaign's annual dinner on Saturday in Washington, D.C.  "We are honored to share this night with President Obama, who has called upon our nation to embrace LGBT people as brothers and sisters," The Human Rights Campaign President, Joel Solmonese, said in an announcement today [10/5/2009].

He won't attend the National Day of Prayer, but... Obama Sends "Best Wishes" to Muslims Before the Start of Ramadan.  In a video message posted on the White House website President Obama extends his "best wishes" to Muslim communities in the US and around the world for Ramadan.

Obama marks Ramadan by praising Islam.  US President Barack Obama extended his best wishes to Muslims around the world Friday [8/21/2009] as they prepare to begin the holy month of Ramadan.  Obama reiterated his desire to mend relations between the United States and Muslim countries that have historically suffered, an effort he began with a major speech in Cairo in June designed to reach out the Islamic community.

Obama ♥ hijabs and niqabs.  The president has a soft spot in his heart for the practice of covering women, lest they incite lust in the hearts of men.  Bookworm points out that Barack Obama has on two occasions made rather a large point of supporting the Muslim practice if keeping women covered in hijabs and niqabs.  In his famous Cairo speech, he referred to covering positively three times.  Last night, at his Ramadan dinner, he returned to the subject.

Obama Calls Islam 'Great Religion' at Ramadan Dinner.  President Barack Obama on Tuesday [9/1/2009] praised American Muslims for enriching the nation's culture at a dinner to celebrate the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Obama Calls Islam Part of America at White House Ramadan Dinner.  President Barack Obama highlighted the contributions made by Muslims to American culture and the "dynamism and diversity" of the Islamic community.  "Islam, as we know, is part of America," Obama said at a White House dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.  "Together we have a responsibility to foster engagement grounded in mutual interest and mutual respect."

The Editor says... Can you imagine the media uproar if President Bush had hosted an Easter dinner with a room full of Christian leaders?  We would have heard all about an impending theocracy for days after the event.

Obama's granny gets free Haj trip from Saudi King.  In the words of Steve Gilbert, "it looks like Mr. Obama's bow to the Saudi king has paid off."

Obama's Muslim grandmother among Mecca pilgrims.  Sarah Obama, US President Barack Obama's 87-year-old Kenyan grandmother, has arrived in Mecca to perform the Muslim pilgrimage of hajj, the Saudi daily Okaz reported Wednesday.  Sarah Obama, one of her grandchildren and 10 people from her village in Kenya made the pilgrimage at the invitation of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, the newspaper reported.

On Thanksgiving eve, Obama issues special Hajj message to world's Muslims.  Text of the statement by the President on Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha, as provided by the White House.

Arlington mayor fires at Obama online.  In the opinion of Arlington Mayor Russell Wiseman, President Barack Obama's speech on Tuesday night [12/8/2009] on the war in Afghanistan was deliberately timed to block the Christian message of the "Peanuts" television Christmas special.  Wiseman made the statements on his Facebook page, where he declared Obama to be a Muslim.  Only people on Wiseman's "friend's list" had access to the post.

Obama Continues to Prove He Is a Muslim.  Obama is just doing his duty as the duly appointed Muslim usurper to the Office of the President to deliver America to the world of Islam.  People who scoff at this information will suffer the most when the great seduction is complete and many Christian heads have rolled.  I for one will at least not be surprised.  It should not be a surprise to anyone with a modicum of common sense that this charlatan is faking his way with his not-very-well-hidden Islamic agenda.

More discussion about Obama and the Muslims.




Is Obama sane?

No, Mr President, the war against al-Qaeda is far from won.  There are times, such as last night's State of the Union address, when I think President Barack Obama has taken leave of reality.  How he can claim, when half the Arab world is being overrun by Islamist militants, that al-Qaeda is now a shadow of its former self is beyond comprehension.
Hannity:  Insiders say Obama is unhinged.  "There are some Democrats that cue me into things.  I got to tell you that the feeling among some people in the White House is that this president is unhinged, that he's detached, that he's losing it, he's obsessed with critics, very specifically obsessed with Fox News, he can't stand Biden, he hates the Clintons, the Clintons hate him.  That the only thing he is passionate about seems to be ESPN and playing golf and and playing some basketball, the only thing that gets his interest.  Infighting apparently, and finger pointing is at an all-time high, if the President is brought bad news on the economy he has a meltdown every time he hears it."

Obama's Dissociative Disorder Ploy.  There is a term in psychiatry for what Mr. Obama is attempting to pull off:  dissociative disorder.  It's considered to be a coping mechanism, when the person literally dissociates himself from a situation or experience too traumatic to integrate with his conscious self.

Opposing Obama.  Gird up for battle.  The next two years will be a rocky road.  Barack Obama is no Bill Clinton.  He's far more leftist.  He's at least equally as ruthless (which is really saying something, because both Clintons are among the most ruthless American politicians of our lifetimes). ... His goal isn't personal "connection" with voters; it's long-term adulation or adoration, verging on worshipfulness — an adulation that recognizes him as a world-transformational figure, a virtual gift to mankind.

Obama's Sons: They Are Real for Him.  Much has been said, [...] at American Thinker and elsewhere, about Barack Obama's recent pair of teleprompted references to his (presumably) non-existent sons.  Thomas Lifson toys with the notion that Obama might in fact have secret sons, as a way of making sense of the seeming insanity of it.  Selwyn Duke suggests it might indicate brain damage from Obama's (presumably) past drug use.  (Funny, isn't it, how often one is left no choice but merely to presume about the Cipher-in-Chief.)  David Paulin asks whether Obama might be the victim of a teleprompting prankster/saboteur.  All of these are reasonable speculations — which is, in itself, reason to be perturbed about America's current devolved state.

Obama's Father's Day.  One of President Obama's more bizarre quirks consists of referring to his "sons" when speaking in public.  Mr. Obama has done this repeatedly; saying that if he had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin, and saying he wants his daughters to have the same economic opportunity as his sons.  Mr. Obama seems to think his family is considerably larger than it appears.  Perhaps it is a deep-seated desire to have sons?

Obama's Revenge:  Who writes two memoirs about himself before the age of 45?  My own speculation is that it could be no one but a narcissist. ... A lot of people have some degree of narcissism, which is characterized by grandiosity, an unquenchable need for admiration, unhealthy self-absorption, dependence on the affirmation of others, and also a lack of empathy, which is hidden by both personal charm and the kind of earnest language that pretends to "feel your pain."  Or he could be a malignant narcissist, which psychiatrist Dr. Otto Kernberg, a legendary leader in thought disorders, compares to a narcissist on steroids.  This variety involves paranoid traits (think of Obama's thin-skinned, quasi-hysterical reactions to Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin), and ego-syntonic aggression, which means the person is perfectly in-sync with people who have the courage he lacks to lash out.

The Making of a Fuehrer:  [Obama] is not a genius.  In fact he is quite ignorant on most important subjects.  Barack Obama is a narcissist.  Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of the Malignant Self Love, also believes, "Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist."  Vaknin is a world authority on narcissism.  He understands narcissism and describes the inner mind of a narcissist like no other person.  When he talks about narcissism everyone listens.  Vaknin says that Obama's language, posture and demeanor, and the testimonies of his closest, dearest and nearest suggest that the Senator is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

Barry Soetoro:  Profiles in Chaos.  It takes a bit of narcissism to wake up in the morning and think:  "Hey, I really ought to be leader of the free world".  Coming to such a conclusion in the fourth grade is, to say the least, ambitious.  Having some narcissistic traits does not a narcissist make.  However, according to the Encyclopedia of Mental Disorders, grandiosity is the most important single trait in narcissism.  Could they mean something along the lines of creating the "Office of the President Elect" and grand speeches in Germany?  Obama's Messianic image of himself?  This is disturbingly common among cult leaders including David Koresh who had "messiah" printed on his business cards.

A Shrink Asks:  What's Wrong with Obama?  Obama's odd mannerisms intrigue a psychotherapist like me.  He also presents a serious diagnostic challenge. ... He doesn't fit easily into any diagnostic category.  Many people attribute Obama's oddness to his narcissism.  True, Obama has a gargantuan ego, and he is notoriously thin-skinned.  Yet a personality disorder like narcissism does not explain Obama's strangeness:  his giggling while being asked about the economy; his continuing a shout-out rather than announcing the Ft. Hood shootings; or his vacations, golfing, partying and fundraising during the calamitous oil spill.

Obama's Narcissistic Personality Disorder.  Obama's desperate need for attention is clearly a psychological condition.  He drinks in applause like a washed-up movie star.  It is usual for neglected children to develop narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), typically characterized by an inflated sense of self-importance, a strong sense of entitlement, preoccupations with utopian fantasies, elitism, manipulative tendencies and pathological need for praise.  President Obama was abandoned by his parents during childhood.  Now he exhibits the textbook symptoms of NPD.

King Obama?  [Scroll down]  He is a narcissist of the highest order.  He actually believes he is a King with all the rights and privileges appertaining thereto.  And he proves it in every speech, every non-Congressionally approved appointment of a Czar, every executive order ignoring Congress and in every bow and move that he makes on or off Air Force One.  His arrogance shown since January 2009 is simply beyond the pale; yet not for a King.  After all, arrogance is the birth right of a monarch.

Obama's Behavior Is Getting Worse.  Obama's Thursday [10/6/2011] news conference was a sober reminder of the nature of the man in the Oval Office.  I infer that even many of his supporters in the liberal media are finally catching on to the magnitude of his personality disorders.  How could a man in his important position continue to act so childishly, accepting no responsibility for his policies and behavior and demonizing everyone who dares to disagree with or oppose him?  It's worse than embarrassing; it's unsettling.

The Transformational Tyrant.  No man is born a murderer, or evil or cruel.  In America, no man is born a king or a tyrant.  Just as a man must learn to be a killer, men must teach themselves to be tyrants.  Barack Obama has learned how to be a tyrant.  The proclivity was always there, along with the arrogance and narcissism.  When you are better than everyone else, it is a small step to wish to reign over them as well.  Yet, few expected a University of Chicago lecturer on constitutional law to decide the Constitution did not apply to him, only to mere mortals like us.

Do You Recognize Barack Obama in These Texts?  The narcissist perceives every disagreement — let alone criticism — coming from people whom he does not consider to be his "peers" (e.g., the media) as nothing short of a threat.  He reacts defensively.  He becomes indignant, aggressive and cold.  He detaches emotionally for fear of yet another (narcissistic) injury. He devalues the person who made the disparaging remark.  By holding the critic in contempt, by diminishing the stature of the discordant conversant — the narcissist minimises the impact of the disagreement or criticism on himself.  This is a defence mechanism known as cognitive dissonance.

Barack Obama's Body Language.  Psychologists say more communication takes place non-verbally than verbally.  Consider, for example, Barack Obama's body language.  Probably more than anyone I've ever seen, he literally looks down his nose as he speaks.  He physically lifts his chin and looks down his nose at his audience or the camera.  It's not something he does on all occasions.  It's most noticeable during commencement speeches and similar events.

President Obey-Me Is Not Being Obeyed.  Narcissists are not nice.  They treat others as puppets on strings.  The rest of us get drawn in by their superficial charm, and then, after a while, we figure out that we've been had.  As soon as we walk away, the result is a towering rage by the narcissist.  We all know people like that.  This is all routine psychiatric manual stuff.  If you can handle a little more, President Obama is an interesting mix of narcissism and "Oppositional Defiant Disorder."

What's the Matter with the Democratic Party?  Narcissistic psychopaths tend to be smooth, soulless operators pursuing power, position, and money, and deviant psychopaths tend more toward violent criminal psychopathy, with Hannibal Lecter as an extreme example. ... A psychopath is quite capable of reflecting on how better to deceive people while being totally oblivious to why he should not do so.  More intelligent psychopaths tend to be the smooth operators, concealing their worst impulses and worming their way into positions of power, wealth, and influence.

Obama Meets His Nemesis.  Obama is one of the most arrogant figures ever to sit in the White House.  John Adams, Andrew Jackson, and Teddy Roosevelt do not have a thing on this man.  There has been considerable speculation that his condition is clinical, that he is in fact a narcissist in the psychological sense, and there is evidence to back this contention.  The public sneer, the smirk, the upthrust chin, the repeated use of the personal pronoun at times when it is far from appropriate.  The remarks like "I won" in circumstances where they are completely uncalled for.  He required no help, on taking office, in boosting his already mammoth ego to the level of near-megalomania, but he got it anyway.

A Psychologist Analyzes The President.  Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless.  As the norm, they lack conscience.  This is evident from Obama's lack of interest in his own brother who lives on only one dollar per month.  A man who lives in luxury, who takes a private jet to vacation in Hawaii, and who raised nearly half a billion dollars for his campaign (something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plight of his own brother.  Why?  Because, his brother cannot be used for his ascent to power.  A narcissist cares for no one but himself.

What will Obama lie about next?  [Scroll down]  In fact, the case can be made that [Barack Obama] is a pathological liar who defrauded the American people and is leading the U.S. and the free world to rack and ruin.  This is a view which is gaining currency across the political spectrum in America and around the globe. [...] He certainly lied when he took his oath of office, which is arguably the most serious and egregious lie of all because it strikes a dagger into the very heart of America freedom and democracy.

Democrat wants Obama impeached.  Kesha Rogers, a Lyndon LaRouche follower and Democratic challenger to U.S. Rep. Pete Olson, R-Sugar Land, has been campaigning on a platform that starts with impeaching President Barack Obama.  Her campaign sent out a news release Friday [10/8/2010] calling on top members of the executive branch to relieve the president of his duties via the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, citing "numerous public displays of President Obama's ongoing psychological meltdown."

Is Obama's Narcissism a National Security Concern?  Under normal circumstances, extreme narcissism creates difficulties in personal relationships and at work because of the narcissist's intense and unrealistic demands for approval and acceptance.  When the narcissist works out of the Oval Office, however, the implications become ominous. [...] A nation with $16 trillion in debt is in desperate need of a government that is firmly grounded in reality — that more borrowing and spending will not cause our deficits to recede any more than electing Obama will change the level of the oceans.

Obama Twice Mistakenly Mentions 'My Sons,' While Defending Contraception Mandate.  In two campaign speeches over the last two days [May 24-25, 2012], President Barack Obama has twice mistakenly mentioned "my sons" when defending his administration's regulation requiring virtually all health-care plans in the United States to provide women, without any fees or co-pay, with sterilizations and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives, including those that can cause abortions.  Obama, of course, has two daughters — 10-year-old Sasha and 13-year-old Malia — but no sons.

The Editor says... The way I see it, the three most likely explanations are these:  (1) The words popped up on the teleprompter and he read them reflexively, as he probably does with every speech (because he almost certainly does not write his own speeches), or (2) he is sending some sort of coded (dog whistle) message to someone, or (3) he is completely nuts.

Is President Obama trying to fill in some missing pieces of his biography?.  What kind of brain freeze or derangement leads someone to refer to my sons, when two daughters are the only fruit of conception one has created?  If George W. Bush has spoken of his sons in public twice, can you even begin to imagine the ridicule the likes of David Letterman, Bill Maher, and Jon Steward would heap on him?  But with BHO, all one hears is the sound of crickets chirping.

Do We Have a Narcissistic and Psychopathic Leader in the White House?  Remember the Obama praise songs that teachers taught their students to sing in grade school?  Remember those that swooned over Obama in his first campaign for the Presidency?  Remember those that fainted?  Remember those that proclaimed that the Messiah had arrived?  One has to ask if this over adoration is healthy.  Is this how we usually regarded our Presidents?

When Leaders Lie.  How many lies does a man have to tell before we can call him a liar? [...] What's interesting about those falsehoods (can we call them lies?) is that they were unprovoked.  We are used to presidential lies, most notably from Nixon and Clinton, but we know full well why those men were lying.  In fact, in their cases it was obvious.  In Obama's, we do not.  Why was he lying?  Self-aggrandizement?  To sell books?  For political purposes?  Dreams from My Father was written before Obama supposedly had presidential ambitions.  Or was there a hint, dare I say it, of pathology?

Is Obama paranoid? Forkless Friday at Obama event.  Does a fork or dinner knife pose an unacceptable danger to President Barack Obama?  One wouldn't think so, given the hundreds of lunches and dinners he's attended ranging from state dinners to political fundraisers to run-of-the-mill stops on the rubber-chicken circuit.  However, at one such lunch Friday afternoon, guests heard an unusual announcement that they needed to hand over their silverware for security reasons.

President Obama Can't Be in the Same Room As Forks Anymore?  As hundreds of Latino elected officials were enjoying their lunch at Disney's Contemporary Resort earlier today [6/22/2012], it was announced that forks would be collected before Obama took the stage.  It was also mentioned that knives, too, were entirely absent from the lunch for "a reason."

The Obama Syndrome?.  [Scroll down]  Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP) is evidenced most commonly, according to the literature, among those who would be classified as "caregivers", such as nurses.  The caregiver suffering MSBP will actually harm the person in their care so that they can then "heroically" save the dependent person and be acclaimed by all as a wonderful, truly epic hero.  Occasionally the person suffering MSBP goes too far and it costs the life of the child.  This is where a disorder becomes "a danger to others", whether the person suffering MSBP is harming an infant to gain acclaim or harming an entire nation.  The behavior of the current resident of the Oval Office appears to be, in many respects, irrational and positively harmful to the United States.

Obama admits he'd like a 'weird superpower'.  President Barack Obama admitted Friday [8/17/2012] in a radio interview broadcast that he yearns for a "weird superpower" — the ability to speak any language.  But flying might be cool, too.

The Only Mad Hatter in the Room.  One does not have to be a mass murderer, of course, to display signs of megalomania.  One can simply run an economy into the ground for four years and then claim that the private sector is "doing just fine."  One of the symptoms of schizophrenia, according to NIH, is the belief that one is "someone else, such as a famous historical figure."  Delusions of grandeur are disturbing wherever they crop up, but in Walter Mitty types, they may not be all that destructive.  In important public figures, however, they can be catastrophic.  So far as I know, there is just one prominent figure in America who, in the past four years, has likened himself to Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan, with a bit of Jesus Christ thrown in.  If we haven't heard that kind of talk lately, it's only because Obama has become convinced that he is so much greater than any of these figures.

Obama: Carbon 'Eating Our Planet,' 'A Threat to Our Children's Future'.  President Barack Obama warned his supporters about the threat of global warming and vowed that more money to subsidize green energy firms would prevent it.  "By the way, yes, my plan will reduce the carbon pollution that is eating our planet because climate change is not a hoax," Obama said at a campaign rally at the Bank United Arena at the University of Miami.

The Editor says... I find it almost impossible to imagine how a sane person could conclude that carbon dioxide (or anything else) could be "eating the planet".

Ramping Up Government Control of the Energy Sector.  If insanity consists of "doing the same thing over and over and expecting it to come out different," President Obama is surely mad.  He has spent four years funding green energy start-ups that have failed, one after another.  Now he wants to spend the next four years funding green energy firms that are again likely to fail.
Are You a Psychopath?  My cousin the psychiatrist sent me the following list for judging the degree of psychopathy in mental patients.  After reading it, you may recognize some people you know.
Bob Woodward: Obama Is Showing 'A Kind Of Madness I Haven't Seen In A Long Time'.  The Washington Post's Bob Woodward ripped into President Barack Obama on "Morning Joe" today [2/27/2013], saying he's exhibiting a "kind of madness I haven't seen in a long time" for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns.  "Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying, 'Oh, by the way, I can't do this because of some budget document?'" Woodward said.
This is very reminiscent of Adolph Hitler. Obama couldn't eat at Hill meeting without food 'taster'.  Following President Obama's lunch meeting with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill, Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins described the food served and said the president was not able to eat since his "taster" was not present.

The Man who would be King.  It must be quite nice to be king.  Or at least think of yourself as king.  Dear Leader Barack Obama exhibited that behavior while at a "working lunch" hosted by Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) last Wednesday (March 13).  The food consisted of Maine lobster salad, Fox Family Potato Chips (from Maine), wild blueberry pie, and Gifford's Ice Cream (made in Maine) for the pie.  But, Obama could not partake of any of the food because (seriously) his personal taster was not present.
