Why 1 In 5 Americans Believes President Obama Is a Muslim (*BARF ALERT*)
Fox News ^ | 8/19/2010 | Rabbi Brad Hirschfield

Posted on 08/19/2010 7:18:08 PM PDT by markomalley

I wish it were as surprising as it is disturbing that nearly 20% of Americans now believe President Obama is a Muslim, but it’s not. Nor is it simply possible to explain the situation by asserting that that many Americans are kooks or idiots for believing it to be true, even though it is certainly not. So what is going on?

In a culture increasingly unable to distinguish between available data and reliable information, more and more Americans will think themselves justified in holding beliefs which have no basis in fact. And it is the glut of available data, available in far greater quantity and with far greater speed than most of us can handle intelligently, which contributes to the spread of absurd notions such as the one reported by this recent poll conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

I have yet to see any evidence of his Christianity other than “he said so”.

We’ve all heard him speak of the “Holy Koran.” Has he ever mentioned the Holy Bible?

Why are the rabbis and ‘RAT toadies in the state run “media” so worried about this? This is all I’ve been hearing about all day. How’s that go? “When you start taking flak, you know you’re over the target”?

I am not one of the ones who thinks he's a Moslem. But I understand those who do. He doesn't demonstrate the attitude, values or instinct that are associated with a Christian of Catholic, Protestant or Orthodox lineage. So, one must look to what other influences might shape his mindset. Well, how about getting his primary education in the largest Muslim country on earth?! I believe that he is an atheist; and the Liberation Theology he got from Rev. Wright, when he was paying attention, is man-centered, not God-centered, let alone Christ-centered.

That said, Islamic culture is something he is quite familiar with and comfortable around, just as the many secularist humanists who grew up in Christian households may still exhibit leftover fumes of the family faith without actually believing.

What most of Western Civilization does not understand, is Islam allows/commands Muslims to lie and deceive non-Muslims. It is called taqiyyah and kitman. It is in the Koran. So Obama could deny he is a Muslim but be lying by using taqiyyah or kitman and still be considered a Muslim according to Islam. This principle of deceit can apply to any Muslim, i.e. the Imam of the GZ Mosque, A’jad of Iran etc... Even if Obama says he isn’t muslim he, more than likely, due to his upbring understands taqiyyah and kitman. Remember the 9/11 hijackers, in order to blend in the US, went to bars, drank liquor and hung out with scantly clad women when necessary.

This is why westerners are suckers for the lies and deceit of Islam. They can’t comprehend someone lying and/or deceiving them and it being perfectly insync with the deceivers’ religion, because such behavior goes against judeo-christian values.

I’m not necessarily agreeing with the story that he is. I am more inclined to believe he is a narcissistic chameleon and will say whatever it takes to achieve his self serving goals/gratification, regardless of religion, aka speaks with a forked tonque. But at the same time one cannot discount the 1 out of 5, if one understand Islam and its use of taqiyyah and kitman, i.e. lying and deception.

Heck all politicians could be Muslim they lie and deceive us 24/7 LOL.

Because he acts MORE like a Muslim than a Christian? Because there’s not really much difference between a Muslim and a “Christian” that affirms “Black Liberation Theology?” Because most Americans have a “stereotypical” idea of what a Christian ought to be (such as it is) and Barack Obama is nowhere CLOSE to that idea? Yeah, that’s why...

FOXNews printed this because, so far as the “official line,” it’s “true.” ANd, they know the “difference” between the traditional “Christian,” the “Black Liberation Theology Christian,” and the “Muslim,” more or less. And yet, they aren’t about to challenge the popular stereotypes....Not openly anyway.

Why? It’s because some of us still use our judgement and common sense. Its because we go by what we actually see and hear, rather than what we are told. Its a perfectly reasonable thought to have when you see someone who appears more loyal to Islam than he is to America. Anyone with half a brain can see there is something doesn’t add up.

Hey Fox News how about getting back to us when you provide us the "factual" evidence of what hospital and who delivered Barack!!

AFTER you get us the "FACTS" of his birth with a legally acceptable document THEN we can deal with another FACT. Let's just say that Barack's real daddy is Barack Hussein Obama Sr.. BHO Sr was a MUSLIM. Barack Jr. by that FACT is MUSLIM and you can consult your local IMAM about that! Another FACT is Barry Jr. went to Muslim school in Indonesia and no doubt quoted the Shahada. In FACT remember Obama's comment in the NY Times, that "The Muslim call to prayer is the most beautiful sound in the world?" And remember that he recited the call in a perfect arabic accent, "There is no god but allah."

Sorry Fox... you have another journOlist just spouting the daily flush.

His father was a Kenyan Muslim. I know of no de-Muslimisng procedure.

http://freedomdefense.typepad.com/leave-islam/
"If you are thinking of leaving Islam, be wary, be careful. Do not tell your Muslim friends or family. The Qur'an commands your death for leaving Islam (4:89 calls for the murder of renegades from the faith), and Muhammad is explicit in a hadith: "If anyone changes his religion, kill him" (Bukhari). Many, many 'honor killings' have been committed for "crimes" that are in Islamic law considered far less serious than leaving Islam. "

For starters, maybe because he talks about a religion followed by scarcely 1% of Americans more than he talks about the religion followed by 75% or so, and that was brought to this land by its original European settlers, and was followed by practically all the founders of the USA.

It could be the fact that he calls the Koran "the Holy Qu'ran" and the Holy Bible "the Bible."

It could be the fact that the "church" he attended for decades in Chicago did not worship Jesus but hatred of the West - which seems to be the key focus of most mosques, to read the sermons of the world's prominent imams.

It could be the fact that he was raised as a Muslim in his formative years, that he still considers the Muslim call to prayer as "the most beautiful sound on earth", and that he can sing the Muslim creed in perfect Arabic.

It could be the fact he does not celebrate Christmas or throw birthday parties or go to church, but does publicly celebrate Iftar.

It could be the fact that the father who never really acknowledged but whom he obsessed over came from a Muslim family and that the mother who abandoned him but whom he longed for was a convert to Islam who spent the last decades of her life in Pakistan.

Maybe these kind of things confuse a certain number of Americans.

Barack Hussein Obama: Once a Muslim, Always A Muslim

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.

One in five Americans believe Obamao is a Muslim because he acts accordingly. They know that even if he isn’t a Muslim, he will always kowtow to an Islamic agenda, like allowing Islamists to place a monument to the 911 terrorists at ground zero. It is what it is. He claims to be Christian, yet does absolutely nothing that supports that claim. Spending twenty-something years in a black liberation church doesn’t count. Jesus didn’t teach hate like commies and Muslims.

Fox or News Corp the parent company has at least 7% Saudi onwership. The other networks Time Warner/CNN, ABC/Disney, NBC/GE/Comcast also have Saudi investors.

I am not sure about Viacom/CBS. Keep watching TV because it supports Imam Obama. Keep watching ball games because the NBA, NFL, MBL, NCAA and ESPN are 100% in support of Obama too. The NFL would not allow Rush to own a team but allowed a Muslim with a very shady past buy one.

Leseee:
1. His father was a Muslim, as was his step-father. By Muslim law, that makes Obama a Muslim; an apostate, possibly, but a Muslim.
2. There is some evidence of his enrollment in a school in SE Asia where his religion is listed as “Muslim.”
3. There are various gaffes “57 states” (57 Muslim States) and “My Muslim faith” that seem to indicate he’s a Muslim.
4. For what its worth, there is apparently an Egyptian Foreign Minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, who claims that Obama admitted his Muslim faith to him.
5. His church, under “Reverend” Wright was certainly NOT Christian.

I’d say there is a bit of evidence with which to work.

The only time he quoted the Bible was during the healthcare debate when he said “The Bible says ‘I am my brother’s keeper’”.

First of all, the Bible does NOT say that. Cain said that as a snarky response when he was trying get out of trouble for murdering his brother.

Obama knows NOTHING about Christianity.
