Barack Hussein Obama’s religious convictions have always made me scratch my head. The sort of hyperbolic oratory and fiery rhetoric we’ve been treated to by Obama’s former pastor of over 20 years, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, make clear that Wright’s take on Christianity is anything but traditional or orthodox. Where do Barack’s spiritual convictions lie? Is he a Christian? Is he Muslim? Is he neither, or both? By the way, I think it’s safe to say that Barack is not a Jew. WINK!
I realize that a number of people would find the thought of someone claiming to be Christian and a Muslim a contradiction bordering on the absurd. I would tend to agree, but Edward Klein writes in his best-selling book The Amateur Rev. Jeremiah Wright told Klein he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having to renounce his “Islamic background,” which Klein claims he has on tape.
Let’s just look at the actions of Obama, in contrast to his claims of being a Christian. The president has never attended an Easter Observance during his entire time in office, but has attended Ramadan celebrations. If Obama was Muslim, this would make sense. A Muslim believes Jesus is a prophet, but they do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God–being crucified as an Atonement for the sins of mankind. The Holy Trinity is anathema to Islam–for there is only one God according to Islam–Allah. The concept of Father, Son and Holy Ghost (Holy Trinity) is eschewed by the Islamic faith. So an observant Muslim could never observe Easter as anything but heresy against Allah.
And then there’s the issue of Obama’s middle-name–Hussein. One thing most Westerners do not understand–to a Muslim, the middle-name “Hussein” signifies that they are a Muslim! It does not matter whether someone who is not a Muslim chooses to believe it or not. To a Muslim, the middle-name “Hussein” means you are a Muslim.
And isn’t interesting how the left decries anyone who points this obvious fact out as being a racist? It’s perfectly acceptable to say “Hillary Rodham Clinton,” but to use “Barack Hussein Obama” is politically-incorrect–so-called racism. Interesting. The whole meme of labeling people critical of Islam as “racists” is preposterous, considering the fact that Islam encompasses many races, but I digress.
Additionally, an observant Muslim would never recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel–claiming the land–so-called “Palestine“–has been stolen by the Zionists and belongs to Islam and the Arabs.
Islam is vehemently anti-gay. As a matter of fact, where strict Islamic Sharia Law is enforced, gays are put to death–in very gruesome ways, I might add. Although Obama has been a supporter of so-called gay rights, Obama has not officially come out in favor of same-sex marriage–he keeps kicking the can down the road. An observant Muslim could never support such a thing, for it is considered an abomination to Allah.
But Islam supports the concept of al-Taqqiya–the practice of using deception and lies to further the cause of Islam. So, for a Muslim in a hostile land (Dar al-Harb), to claim support for something that goes against the teachings of the Prophet is perfectly acceptable, as long as it is done to further the cause of Islam–which is total submission and domination of Islam over the kuffar (unbelievers).
Ironically, we see Obama et ilk condemn the owners of Chick-Fil-A restaurant for expressing their own private views regarding the Christian definition of marriage, yet Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel embraces the notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan–who is vehemently anti-gay as well.
Which brings us to a conundrum: if Chick-Fil-A is to be punished for the religious views of its owners–being accused of being “anti-gay,” does that mean that all Muslim shop owners in Chicago will also be punished for being anti-gay? Like I said, Islam is staunchly anti-gay and makes no bones about it. Just sayin’.
There are some very disturbing patterns starting to develop in regard to the administration’s policy toward Islamic terrorism, and Islam in general. Actually, the Obama Administration cannot even bring themselves to call Islamic terrorism “terrorism.” It is referred to as “man-made disasters.” This is astonishing. One of the most serious threats to American sovereignty and American citizens–Islamic terrorism–is virtually ignored, yet DHS is quick to paint “liberty-loving” patriots as potential “terrorists.” Something stinks in Denmark!
Incredibly, Rep.Trent Franks of the House’s constitution subcommittee questioned a DoJ official who refused to denounce demands for a Saudi-style blasphemy law. The YouTube description claims:
Barack Obama’s top civil rights official repeatedly declined to support religious free speech during a July 27 congressional hearing, despite repeated questioning from Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks, who chairs the House’s constitution subcommittee.
Tom Perez, the progressive who runs the Justice Department’s civil rights office, refused to answer the questions posed by Franks.
“Will you tell us… that this administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?” Frank asked four times.
Perez refused to answer, saying “it is a hard question, in the sense that when you make threats against someone.” Perez then suggested he would respond to draft legislation from the committee, but again refused to answer Frank’s question about free speech rights.
Franks’ questions were prompted by an October 2011 Daily Caller report, which described a D.C. meeting between Perez and hardcore Islamists, including Mohamed Magid, the Sudan-born, Saudi-trained head of the Islamic Society of North America….
Texas Department of Public Safety officials are asking questions following a report that Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council member Mohamed Elibiary may have been given access to a sensitive database of state and local intelligence reports, and then allegedly shopped some of those materials to a media outlet. He allegedly used the documents to claim the department was promoting “Islamophobia” — claims that the media outlet ultimately rejected. They declined to do the story.
The current administration appears to be bending over backwards for Islamic interests–if not supporting the Islamic agenda outright. For a DoJ official to sit before representatives of our government and utterly refuse to reaffirm the 1st Amendment, is not only unbelievable, it is tyrannical and treasonous. Islam has no problem hurling vile and fanatical insults–and much, much worse–at every religion on earth, yet we, as Americans, must now bow down and curb our speech and criticisms of Islam?
I see no such accommodation for Jews, Christians and others coming from the Obama Administration–quite the contrary. For example, Obama has plainly stated that he sees no role for Judeo-Christian principles in public policy. Obama has asked which tenet of Scripture should we employ in public policy. The laws of Leviticus (where Obama alleges it condones slavery)? Or the laws of Deuteronomy (where Obama alleges it condones the stoning of children)? I have a real hard time imagining a devout Christian coming to such juvenile and contemptuous conclusions regarding the Christian faith in particular.
Obama seems to be completely devoid of any knowledge of the New Covenant–meaning, the New Testament. Do you know any professed Christians promoting slavery or the stoning of children running for office now? If you do, I imagine they won’t be running long.
Perhaps Barack should consider the story of the woman accused of adultery in the New Testament; and the throng of angry mob who were going to stone her to death. The law demanded that women accused of adultery must be stoned to death. But Jesus said, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” They all dropped their stones and left. Perhaps Barry should consider doing the same.
I highly recommend watching (click here) former Asst. Defense Sec. Frank Gaffney’s excellent and authoritative 10-part series on the Muslim Brotherhood and its ongoing “civilization jihad” within America. It will truly shock you. If it doesn’t, well … America U’ Akbar!
