I don’t remember anyone calling George W. Bush a Muslim, Bill Clinton a Jew or JFK a Buddhist, do you? With Obama leaving office in less than a week, what better time to try and solve the 8 year old question than the present.
Most people don’t really care about President Obama’s religious faith one way or the other, it’s the ambiguity in many of his actions and his commitment to the United States that has left many people confused. There is a specific reason I chose to bring up this topic today but more on that after a little background. First I would like to examine why so many right wing, racist, wackos could even entertain the possibility that Barack Hussein Obama might be a Muslim. Let’s see what I can find out…
According to a 2015 piece in the Washington Post:
A startling number of Americans still believe President Obama is a Muslim. According to a new CNN/ORC poll, 29 percent of Americans say they think that Obama is a Muslim, including 43 percent of Republicans.
Among all adults, 39 percent say they believe Obama is a Protestant or another kind of Christian, another 11 percent say he’s not religious, and 14 percent that they just don’t know. Of those who took the survey, 4 percent believe he is Catholic, 2 percent think he is Mormon, 1 percent believe he is Jewish, and 1 percent think he is something else. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2015/09/14/a-startling-number-of-americans-still-believe-president-obama-is-a-muslim/?utm_term=.414c4c26a3c4 read more
Obama has repeatedly said that he is a practicing Christian, so why is it that only 39% of all adults consider him to be Christian/Protestant?
Let’s examine some of the events that may or may not have caused so much confusion. First, but not in chronological order is the verbal slip that turned quite a few heads – or was it a Freudian slip? George Stephanopoulos had to step in with an assist after realizing Obama wasn’t cognizant of the slip. Not sure about any of you, but I would never accidentally refer to my “Wiccan beliefs.”
THE MUSLIM FAITH RUMORS
THE EARLY YEARS INDICATE OBAMA, AT THE VERY LEAST ‘WAS’ A MUSLIM
With certain facts being examined, we can at least assume that Obama was “born” a Muslim and was raised as one. According to the Washington Times:
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. (The same goes for names based on the H-M-D root.) Mr. Obama’s middle name, Hussein, explicitly proclaims him born a Muslim.
(3) Registered as Muslim at SD Katolik Santo Fransiskus Asisi: Mr. Obama was registered at a Catholic school in Jakarta as “Barry Soetoro.” A surviving document correctly lists him as born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961. In addition, it lists him as having Indonesian nationality and Muslim religion.
(4) Registered as Muslim at SD Besuki: Although Besuki (also known as SDN 1 Menteng) is a public school, Mr. Obama curiously refers to it in “The Audacity of Hope” (Page 154) as “the Muslim school” he attended in Jakarta. Its records have not survived, but several journalists (Haroon Siddiqui of the Toronto Star, Paul Watson of the Los Angeles Times and David Maraniss of The Washington Post) all have confirmed that there, too, he was registered as a Muslim.
(5) Islamic class at Besuki: Mr. Obama mentions (“Audacity,” Page 154) that at Besuki, “the teacher wrote to tell my mother that I made faces during Koranic studies.” Only Muslim students attended the weekly two-hour Koran class, Mr. Watson reports:
(6) Mosque attendance: Maya Soetoro-Ng, Mr. Obama’s younger half-sister, said her father (Mr. Obama’s stepfather) attended the mosque “for big communal events.” Kim Barker of the Chicago Tribune found that “Obama occasionally followed his stepfather to the mosque for Friday prayers.”
(7) Muslim clothing: Mr. Adi recalls about Mr. Obama, “I remember him wearing a sarong.” Likewise, Mr. Maraniss found not only that “his classmates recalled that Barry wore a sarong,” but written exchanges indicating that he continued to wear this garment in the United States. This fact has religious implications because in Indonesian culture, only Muslims wear sarongs.
(8) Piety: Mr. Obama said that in Indonesia, he “didn’t practice” Islam, an assertion that inadvertently acknowledges his Muslim identity by implying he was a nonobservant Muslim. But several of those who knew him contradict this recollection. Rony Amir described Mr. Obama as “previously quite religious in Islam.” A former teacher, Tine Hahiyary, quoted in the Kaltim Post, said the future president took part in advanced Islamic religious lessons: “I remember that he had studied mengaji.” In the context of Southeast Asian Islam, mengaji Koran means to recite the Koran in Arabic, a difficult task denoting advanced study. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/sep/10/barry-was-muslim/
Obama: Man of the World
NY TIMES, MARCH 2007:
Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.” read more
OBAMA FAMILY ‘CHRISTMAS’ CARD LACKS ANY REFERENCE TO CHRISTMAS
No “Merry Christmas,” not even the watered down, obligatory “Happy Holidays,” message… read more
Muslim grandfather, father and step father, brothers, half brothers, half sister – Muslim schooling – attended Mosques – referred to his “Muslim faith, on camera – leaves the White House during Christmas time every year and there is no Christmas message on the 2016 “Christmas card” (not damning, but odd) – How on earth could anybody possibly think Barack Hussein Obama could be a Muslim? The all knowing and all wise members of the media respond to people who question Obama’s faith with: “He says he’s a Christian,” and they are totally satisfied with that.
LET’S NOW EXAMINE THE EVIDENCE OF OBAMA’S CHRISTIAN FAITH
Politi-hack, oh sorry, that was a Freudian slip of my own… ‘Politifact’ has done extensive, comprehensive, expanded, protracted tireless research and can finally conclude that all claims pertaining to Obama being a Muslim are officially ‘debunked.’ Wanna see?
“PolitiFact has done extensive fact-checking on Obama’s faith and has debunked false claims in chain e-mails. Our fact-checking also showed clear evidence that Obama is a Christian. According to the president’s memoirs and independent biographies, Obama was not raised in any particular faith.”
And then they dug even deeper to find incontrovertible evidence of Obama’s Christian faith… LOOK:
“Along his Senate campaign trail (in 2004), Obama would never fail to carry his Christian Bible. He would place it right beside him…” You really can’t make this stuff up. read more
THE CHRISTIAN PAPER TRAIL
Not exactly “one of the prettiest sounds on earth,’ but Obama had also been exposed to the Christian faith when he found his way into the Trinity United Church of Christ on the south side of Chicago, also home to the famous Bad, Bad Leroy Brown (you’re welcome Croce fans). It was in that church that Obama was exposed to Christianity and met his newest mentor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Frank Marshall Davis had already taught him all he’d need to know about America. For more on him, clock here: Frank Marshall Davis
When asked about his relationship with and his 20 year attendance at Wright’s church, Obama said: “I don’t think my church is actually particularly controversial.” And then he said of Rev. Wright “he’s like an old uncle who says things I don’t always agree with.” If I had an uncle like Jeremiah Wright, I wouldn’t be so quick to tell anyone…
Here’s some more from Obama’s “old uncle,” Rev. Wright, from 2008, ABC:
In addition to damning America, he told his congregation on the Sunday after Sept. 11, 2001 that the United States had brought on al Qaeda’s attacks because of its own terrorism.
“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye,” Rev. Wright said in a sermon on Sept. 16, 2001.
“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” he told his congregation. read more
Haven’t had enough Rev. Wright yet, no problem there’s more:
Speaking at Washington’s Florida Avenue Baptist Church, which marks its 100th anniversary this week, Wright urged parishioners to teach their children true African-American history and not to cede their educations to “our enemies” who teach “his story,” one that “distorts our story, disses our story.”
Wright also blasted people who he described as “biscuits” and “sheep dogs” – African Americans raised in the white world
I wonder which one Rev. Wright considers Obama to be, a sheep dog or a biscuit, after all Obama has a white mother and was raised by his white grandparents – a task that neither Obama’s biological father nor his step father, Lolo Soetoro were able to take on.
Is it any wonder why racial relations in the U.S. have deteriorated throughout Obama’s 8 year tenure as president, after all he spent 20 years listening to an angry, anti American preacher. Still, no concern anywhere in the mainstream media. That’s about all I’ve got linking Obama to Christianity, except for a few random quote from scripture – sorry.
WHAT COMPELLED ME TO PUBLISH THIS RANT TODAY?
A story I read today brought me to the point of frustration and caused me to reflect on previous patterns.
* 2016 Was ‘Worst Year Yet’ for Christian Persecution
Christians are being slaughtered across the Mid East at historic levels and I can not remember seeing any outrage or plan of action from the Obama administration. We have heard plenty about the plight of Muslim Syrians who needed to get out of Syria right away and hurry on into the U.S. at record speed and in some cases with minimal vetting.
12,587 Syrian Refugees Admitted in FY 2016: 12,486 Muslims, 68 Christians, 24 Yazidis
I’m not an accountant but there seems to be a little math problem here. I’m an Italian American but the mother of my son is half Syrian, Catholic Syrian to be exact. I happen to know there are quite a few Catholics/Christians in Syria, why the tremendous discrepancy in the number of migrants? read more

WHY ARE MOST OF THE “REFUGEES” MALES?
If you look at the very bottom right-hand side of the infographic, you’ll find a very interesting statistic. Fully 72% of the “refugees” from the Syrian Civil War are males. Only 15% are children, and even fewer are women – 13%. POLITICAL INSIDER
Republicans Propose Bills Designating Iranian Guard And Muslim Brotherhood As Terror Groups DAILY CALLER
The bills, according to a press release, will direct the State Department to hold accountable both the IRGC and the Muslim Brotherhood “two foreign entities that espouse a violent Islamist ideology with a mission of destroying the West. Both bills require a report on whether these organizations meet the criteria to be designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations, and if so, will enable the U.S. to take action that could stifle the funding they receive to promote their terrorist activities.”

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, swept into power earlier this year on an Islamic campaign that promised reforms, has turned the Arab Spring revolution on its end by trying to usurp power. He has deployed armed soldiers and police to quell angry riots that have raised fears of a repeat of the violent suppression of anti-Mubarak protesters nearly two years ago.
Despite the instability, the United States is going ahead with the delivery of the F-16 jets, part of a two-year-old order for the planes. read more
What was it that Obama said in 2008…? Oh yeah I remember, he was “going to fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

- Who lobbied to help the Muslim Brotherhood take control of Egyp, against the advise of his military advisorst? link
- Who saw to it that Gaddafi was eliminated, which sparked chaos and free reign for terrorists throughout Libya? link

Obama Turns NASA Into Muslim Outreach Program
In July of 2010, NASA chief Charles Bolden said in an interview with Al-Jazeera,
- “When I became the NASA administrator, (President Obama) charged me with three things. One, he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering.” read more

Please, somebody show me what Obama has done to protect and defend his fellow Christians throughout all these years. Where are the republicans, the democrats, the media? Did Obama leave his Bible in the SUV at his last 2004 Senate campaign stop (where politifact says he carried it religiously) and forget he once owned one, or does he just not care?
Obama’s rules of engagement: Calling lawyers for permission to kill terrorists
When Capt. Zinni spotted the four men planting the booby trap on the afternoon of Feb. 17, the first thing he did was call his lawyer.
“Judge!” he yelled.
Capt. Matthew Andrew, judge advocate for 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, advises the battalion about when it is legal to order the airstrikes. He examined the figures on the video feed closely. “I think you got it,” Capt. Andrew said, giving the OK for the strike.
But, the story reports, Zinni (son of Anthony Zinni) ended up spotting kids nearby — so the strike was called off. The terrorists ended up getting away.
Is it just an accident that some kids were wandering near insurgents planting a booby trap? Almost certainly not:
Want to blow people up… no problem, just bring some kids along with you -want to launch missiles, do it from a hospital or a school and you’ll be untouched by the enemy. The strategy established is that if a terror group launches missiles from a school, you cant fire upon them – and if you do, you’re the terrorist! Once again I query myself, is this by design or can it be utter ignorance and stupidity? Either way, I’m not comfortable with it.
Capt. Zinni had seen this scenario before in Marjah. Insurgents using women and children for cover as they moved weapons or crossed open spaces into fighting positions in buildings. In this case, the captain was certain that the children were acting—either by their own volition or under coercion—as shields for the men planting the bomb.
The way the Taliban see it, he thought, they’d win either way: The Americans might hold their fire and allow them to plant a bomb unmolested. Or the Americans might kill a few civilians, a propaganda victory for an insurgent force increasingly adept at using the media to spread its message. read more
Under Obama: 75% of Casualties in 13-Year Afghan War
Fifty-five U.S. servicemen were killed in Afghanistan in 2014, bringing the total number of American fatalities in the 13-year war to 2,232, according to a CNSNews.com database.
Of those 2,232 deaths, 1,663 – 74.5 percent – occurred since President Obama took office on Jan. 20, 2009. The deadliest years for U.S. personnel were 2010, when 495 were killed; 2011, when there were 404 casualties; and 2009 when the death toll was 306. read more
