Hmmm. This would explain his affinity for Farrakhan. It also squares with the fact that whatever Wright is preaching, it's not Christianity. Add another possible former Muslim to the picture and things get very interesting indeed. Wright's "church" could be taqiyaa (Nation of Islam flavor) on a commercial scale (and typical white people would never suspect a thing).

Farrakhan's NoI is not really "Islam" in the Quranic sense. They do not preach from the Quran or Hadith. Nation of Islam is this weird Black Nationalist cult that just calls itself Islamic. Similarly, Wright's group seems mainly Black Nationalist at its core. What we might have here are just two "skins" on the same core.

it could also be that Wright is not as "former" as he claims, and that Wright's church is a "feeder" to NoI, and/or a place where NoI can congregate while giving the surface appearance of being mainstream Christian

UPDATE
(Moderator, can you put "UPDATED 4/11" in the title?)

Now I've come across this old Nick Kristoff column in the NYT [hat tip NRO's Campaign Spot].

It, too, is from March, 2007, the same time as the TNR piece. In this one there is no question but that the statements came directly from Obama himself.

Obama: Man of the World

In foreign policy as well, Mr. Obama would bring to the White House an important experience that most other candidates lack: he has actually lived abroad. He spent four years as a child in Indonesia and attended schools in the Indonesian language, which he still speaks.

“I was a little Jakarta street kid,” he said in a wide-ranging interview in his office (excerpts are on my blog, www.nytimes.com/ontheground). He once got in trouble for making faces during Koran study classes in his elementary school, but a president is less likely to stereotype Muslims as fanatics — and more likely to be aware of their nationalism — if he once studied the Koran with them.

[In the interview] 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.”

Moreover, Mr. Obama’s own grandfather in Kenya was a Muslim. Mr. Obama never met his grandfather and says he isn’t sure if his grandfather’s two wives were simultaneous or consecutive, or even if he was Sunni or Shiite. (O.K., maybe Mr. Obama should just give up on Alabama.)

[Ha Ha. Only us hicks in Alabama are bothered by all this~!]

So now we have two sources from the same timeframe (March 07), apparently based on interviews with Obama, wherein there was free ranging discussion of his and Wright's Muslim backgrounds. This could not have been a mistake...it was at exactly the time he was launching his campaign.

But now, a year later, the only time the media addreses the Muslim issue is to lambaste anyone who brings it up (No middle names!. He DID NOT study in a madrassas!).

He is an apostate Muslim. Islamic law demands the death penalty for that offense.

I can think of many more sounds that he could have picked. What about a baby cooing? He picked this sound to rub our noses in it.

I think its safe to say that Obamas church is really just the Christian branch of the Nation of islum.

Look at the guy who replaced Wright, they even have the same bowtie thing going, these people are Farrakhan with a Cross around their neck.

True. Sunnis and Shiites would both consider “black muslims” to be damned heretics suitable for beheading, although they might qualify as “people of the book.” Funny nobody asks Farrakhan if he is Sunni or Shiite. He's neither. He's not a muslim at all. “Black Muslims” believe that the idea of a “mystery god” in heaven is a lie invented by white people, and that the only real god is black people.

In other words, it's nothing but eighteenth century European "enlightenment" rationalism dressed up in non-"western" garb.

It's most ironic that lefties love "indigenous pipples" and hate rednecks when rednecks and "indigenous pipples" have much more in common than either does with "enlightenment" leftists.

Thank you. Anyone who thinks he isn’t a Muslim because he eats shellfish, drinks liquor or is a homosexual is fooling themselves. Muslims are allowed to do such things if they have to pretend they’re infidels, plus there is a huge undercurrent of faggotry in Islam, and plus his own upbringing, statements and policies show his loyalty to Islam.

Good find.

Here’s another interesting thing if you can find it. An Egyptian born Christian - a young man, whose father is also a minister, had a series of Youtubes I saw at least 1 1/2 years ago. He called up the Wright Church and asked if he could join. The phone answering lady welcomed him. He then said that he is a Muslim and is that okay.

She answered that plenty of our members are Muslims, no problem. The he asked if 0thugga is a Muslim. Lady hung up on him.

I think this might have been before the elections, when Wright was still top dog there.

As I've tried to point out countless times, the "Black Muslim" movement in the US is a "Black Liberation Theology" (revolutionary communist) front movement. It's basically no different than what Wright is doing today. Communists concocted various BS religions to use as a means of advancing the revolutionary communist agenda. Most of the participants (dupes), however, actually believe it's about religion. It isn't.

Unity generates power to change reality
By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

"The time has never been more ripe for a strategic relationship between the Black, Brown, Native American and the poor of this nation and the world."

"We need a Ministry of Defense. Our young men are born soldiers, but they are in the wrong war. They are fighting a war in the streets of America against each other, or they are fighting an unjust war overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq. We need to bring our boys home and put them into the Ministry of Defense, so we can defend our communities, rather than destroy our communities.

We need a Ministry of Art and Culture. We applaud the hip hop community, the leaders of young people all over the world, but I want the young generation of artists to know there is a bigger purpose for art and culture than popping our fingers and shaking our backsides.

Mao Tse Tung, throughout his long march to conquer China, had a billion people whose lives he had to transform. Many of them were victims of opium, drugs and prostitution, like we are. But Mao Tse Tung went to the cultural community and they accepted his idea. Then, through song, dance, poetry, drama, documentaries, movies and books, the idea of Mao Tse Tung became the idea of a billion people. China became a world power on the base of culture and the artistic community. If we had a Ministry of Art and Culture in every city, [we'd] create this movement [in the U.S.], we could say to our young people, “What is the idea of the Time and are you reflecting that idea in your songs, dance and music?

We need a Ministry of Trade and Commerce. Do you think that a Millions More Movement should not be involved in the development of Africa, the Caribbean and Central America? ... we need a Ministry of Trade and Commerce that can link the struggle here with Africa and the Caribbean, Central and South America.

The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
Monday , May 5, 2008
FoxNews/Hannity's America
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]

(some key excerpts)

["(Jose) Diaz-Balart is the son of Rafael Diaz-Balart y Guitierrez (a former Cuban politician). He has three bothers, Rafael Diaz-Balart (a banker), Mario Diaz-Balart (a US Congressman) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (also a US Congressman). His aunt, Mirta Diaz-Balart, was Fidel Castro's first wife."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jose_Diaz-Balart]

JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.

I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."

REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."

SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obama’s pastor in a heated interview about his Church’s teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...

Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.

Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004

In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.

The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.

Wright is a "former Muslim"?!

This has been out there since before the election in 2008. It would probably be more accurate to take out the "former" part and replace it with "undercover." Remember the church told someone who called and asked if they had to give up Islam to join the church, "No, we have many Muslims." The person then asked what he had to do to become part of the church and was told he had to attend two Sundays and then walk down the aisle. On the other hand, Black Muslim Theology is to Islam what Black Liberation Theology is to Christianity.

"Minister Farrakhan and his delegation met privately with President Fidel Castro of Cuba."

Farrakhan, at the 2005 "Millions More Movement" rally in DC:

"Mao Tse Tung, throughout his long march to conquer China, had a billion people whose lives he had to transform. Many of them were victims of opium, drugs and prostitution, like we are. But Mao Tse Tung went to the cultural community and they accepted his idea. Then, through song, dance, poetry, drama, documentaries, movies and books, the idea of Mao Tse Tung became the idea of a billion people. China became a world power on the base of culture and the artistic community. If we had a Ministry of Art and Culture in every city, [we'd] create this movement [in the U.S.]

I'm coming to the conclusion that we're just talking amongst ourselves and not DOING anything. We're not out in the real word WHERE IT COUNTS.

Solid conclusion. Thus my New Year's resolution to freep less and get out where talk might lead to action. In fact, I'm coming to the conclusion that the internet is another opiate of the masses, and only making oppression more tolerable.
