A first: Obama administration meets with atheists
Houston Belief ^ | February 26, 2010 | Kate Shellnutt

Posted on 02/26/2010 9:05:10 PM PST by bogusname

Today the White House--which has hosted everyone from the Dalai Lama to dinner party crashers--welcomes a group it never has before: non-believers.

The Secular Coalition for America, a lobby group including atheists, humanists, nontheists and others, will meet with the Obama administration to discuss religious discrimination in government faith-based initiatives, military proselytizing and faith-healing.

It's the first time in history such a group has been invited to talk policy with presidential officials. Obama was also the first president to mention nonbelievers in an inaugural address.

Athiests don’t believe in nothing, they believe in anything.

Birds of a feather flock together.

0bama is neither Christian or Muslim. He doesn’t believe in God , never has, never will. He believes in government.

You know, no kidding, he does have a noticeable reaction when someone occasionally says something true in his presence. Obama will eventually be put to flame when he’s finally in Christ’s presence.

In an interview with Nicholas Kristof, published in The New York Times, Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer, the Adhan, “with a first-class [Arabic] accent.”

The opening lines of the Adhan (Azaan) is the Shahada:

“Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!

Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!

I witness that there is no god but Allah

I witness that there is no god but Allah

I witness that Muhammad is his prophet? “

According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound statement expresses a Muslim’s complete acceptance of, and total commitment to, the message of Islam. Obama chanted it with pride and finesse.

Quote from Barack Obama’s book, Dreams From My Father:

“THE PERSON WHO MADE ME PROUDEST OF ALL, THOUGH, WAS MY [half brother], ROY..HE CONVERTED TO ISLAM”.

From ‘Dreams From my Father’, “IN INDONESIA, I SPEND TWO YEARS AT A MUSLIM SCHOOL” “..I STUDIED THE KORAN..”

From ‘Audacity of Hope: “LOLO (Obama’s step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM....”I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE”.

From ‘The Audacity Of Hope, “I WILL STAND WITH THEM (MUSLIMS) SHOULD THE POLITICAL WINDS OF WAR SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION..”

From The Audacity Of Hope, “WE ARE NO LONGER JUST A CHRISTIAN NATION, we are also a Jewish nation, a MUSLIM NATION, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

Obama admits he is a Muslim:

OBAMA MOCKS THE BIBLE
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FCNK...w.phforamerica

Statements by Barack Hussein Obama:

“In Ankara, I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”

“The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country,”
“ [Islam is]a great religion and its commitment to justice and progress.”

“The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims.” And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States.”

“So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

“Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That is why the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it.”

“So let there be no doubt: Islam is a part of America.”

“Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people”. Barack Hussein Obama

I know I’m going off on one of my weird tangents but I’ve posted close to the same words you used in my posts over at other sites and I agree with you. I know that no one thinks that idiot can be the antichrist but check out just what you said and how well it fits.

“0bama is neither Christian or Muslim. He doesn’t believe in God”
2 Thessalonians 2:4
He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God

“He believes in government”
Daniel 11:38
Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his fathers he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. (Governmental Powers or World Government?)

I realize that the name we know him by doesn’t add up to 666 in Hebrew but you must remember that we don’t have his birth certificate. We don’t really know what his name is for sure.

OK that’s my sermon for today. Please send all donations to Free Republic/in care of bogusname. Thank you for your generous support.

I thought he met regularly with the democratic leadership in congress...

(As an aside, I read the title rather quickly, and with the Olympics in the background I first read "A first: Obama administration meets with atheletes."

Last I heard, atheists are Americans too. I don’t see why this matters to us. He is the President of the United States not just the President of us Christians.

He has supposedly been baptized.

Newsweek 8/18/09

And Patriot08 has documented his Islamic actions.

But I do not believe his spirituality is anything more than a dirt worshiper. He believes in things of the earth, money, power, government, lying and deceiving.

He is of the nature written in 2 Thessalonians 2:4 and Daniel 11:38 but so are a lot of others far more clever than him.

In my opinion he is not the anti-christ but I believe his overwhelming lust for power and his narcissistic need for praise he is easily influenced and prefers those that have chosen against Christ.

I believe you’re probably right. Obama does appear far too stupid to be the antichrist.
I’ve also considered that Christians might be making a wrong assumption in thinking the antichrist is some sort of genius. They likewise tend to think that satan and the antichrist are joined together as one as in father and son. I do not believe that satan will love the antichrist. It may be that this person is simply so lawless and so absent of moral conscientiousness that satan is able to control him beyond all others. If the anichrist was truly wise he wouldn’t be the antichrist. At any rate most people believe that he won’t be given power until the church is removed anyway. He can’t take his seat until we who restrain are taken out of his way.

I believe there's even a slang term for it, but I can't remember what it is. All I can say is I have had some real doozies-- both when reading the forum and the newspaper!

Sometimes, "eyepo's" (for lack of the real slang term) have more entertainment value than the real thing... ;-)

The king has met with the global warmist cult and now the universal pessimists. Maybe the fat head objectivists can convince the flat earth Know-nothings that the planet Gaia doesn’t exist.
