“Frank” assumes facts not in evidence. Aside from his say so, there is no proof whatsoever of Zilch adhering to any known denomination of Christianity.

I want to see these sycophants called on this even more than I do Obama.

Black Liberation Theology. It is a mixture of Islam Christianity and Marxism. It was started a few decades ago by James. Cone. It is a cult.

Another thing...there was a poll posted the other day where most Americans said they would not vote for a muzzie or an athiest. If that’s true, than how the F was Obamao elected with 55% either not knowing his religion or knowing he is a muzzie?

Barack Obama is dishonest. He cannot explain to the black community that he is skeptical of organized religion and that he was raised in an agnostic/muslim household.

He sees Jesus as a “historical figure” but not the way to salvation. He also sees the black church community as vital to any success as a black politician in AmeriKKKa.

He doesn’t actually believe in “your superstitious” beliefs and wishes you’d quit clinging to God and look to Big Government to save you instead.

In a 2008 interview with staphalococcus bambi first says he is a Muslim, then after being corrected by staphy, says that he is a christian. Even he doesn’t know his own religion.

Anyone who thinks he is even remotely a Christian should look at the fruits falling from his tree (so to speak).

I agree with THIS analysis of Obama’s beliefs:

“He’s a Marxist agnostic with a soft spot for Islam, which he sees as a victim of American imperialism. His professed Christianity is mostly a political ruse. He had to do it in order to show solidarity with “the community” in Chicago.”

11% said muslim. 8% said None/no religion. The truth somewhere in that 19%. He worships himself, Marx, and allah but allah is more of the religion of his fathers than a personal identity.

I think that’s at the heart of it.

Øbozo was trained as a muzzie in his youth but it’s pretty apparent that he abandoned it at some point. He adopted the trappings of a Christian but behaves like no practicing Christian that I know (or would want to know).

He has professed to being a Christian but with his proclivity towards being a pathological liar how is anyone reasonably supposed to take him at his word?

The only thing we know for sure - as evidenced by his actions and deeds is that he is a Narcissist. He is too infatuated with his own self to have time to seek spiritual communion with anyone else.

He is agnostic with a leaning to being a cultural Muslim. He was not raised as a Christian at all, and any self-claim of being Christian was, and is, for political gain.

His entire upbringing was a confused mess, and there was no religion in any home he lived in while growing up except for the few years he lived with his step-father.

He is not a Christian. Period.

In that he's not so different from a lot of "mainstream Protestants" and "cafeteria Catholics."

He also sees the black church community as vital to any success as a black politician in AmeriKKKa.

True. It's not clear that he actually believes in Black Liberation Theology, though he did sit through a lot of Wright's sermons

I have not read his book, but if I recall what I’ve read excerpts from, there may be a passage that he knew he would have to join a black church to be effective as a community organizer.

If Republicans are going to be asked religious questions at the debates (and they were on subjects like “honoring your husband”, “evolution vs. creationism”, etc.) then it is FAIR GAME to ask Barack Obama if he believes that (A) Jesus walked among men after His crucifixion and (B) Jesus is the ONLY way to salvation.

A lot of “go along to get along” people would have to acknowledge this man is not a Christian (without even having to ask for his baptism certificate).

None of Obama’s statements about Jesus Christ are in conflict with his (once?) muslim faith and traditions.

Jeremiah Wright is a former muslim too.

It is abundantly clear that he is most deferential towards islam but I do not think that he is a practitioner. The ironic thing is that, to many that makes him an apostate.

I sure would hate to see him get his jug-eared head lopped off by any of his muzzie buddies...

I prefer to rely on what Barry said rather than speculating.

In an ABC interview during the 2008 election Barry was giving McCain some praise for not making his Muslim faith an issue.

Therefore, in the liar in chief’s own words, he is a Mud-Slime. Who are we to argue?

Barry’s propaganda machine immediately said Barry misspoke. When was the last time ANYONE on the FR misspoke and said they were a Muslim if they were not?

Liberation theology isn’t Christianity. It is hate based Marxism that misuses religious doctrines and sentiment to incite violence and revolution . Most intelligent Americans understand that Obama’s Christianity is a farce, and that his religious allegiance, what little there is, goes to Islam. It is obvious, but the MSM, always defending their liberal, doesn’t get it. The American people who say Obama is a Muslim aren’t the stupid ones. They have been paying attention.
