White House aghast over 'secret Muslim' poll
NY Post ^ | 20 Aug 10 | AMBER SUTHERLAND and CARL CAMPANILE

Posted on 08/20/2010 8:51:40 AM PDT by SkyPilot

The White House was forced yesterday to reaffirm President Obama's Christian faith after shocking polls found that 1 out of every 4 or 5 Americans falsely believe he's a Muslim -- a considerable increase from last year.

"The president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day," White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters.

"He communicates with his religious adviser every single day. There's a group of pastors that he takes counsel from on a regular basis. And his faith is very important to him, but it's not something that is a topic of conversation every single day."

A separate White House statement stressed that Obama's "strong Christian faith is what guides him" in facing the nation's challenges. "But he doesn't wear it on his sleeve," the press office added.

The president's flacks also complained that Obama's faith is "often maligned and distorted by critics."

I thought he might be a Christian until we were introduced to Reverend Wright.

And I realized he was prepared to fight, not for abortion, but for partial birth abortion, and furthermore fight to make sure no baby would ever survive an abortion. Now, thats weird.

And I realized that he is and has always been an out-of-the-closet communist. And all his friends are communists. And all of his family are communists.

And his closest “christian advisor” is a communist.

Once all that sinks in there is no possibility you mistake him for a Christian.

And, the thing of it is, the people who support him by and large actively dislike Christians. If he were a Christian most of his supporters would run from him like scalded cats.

“The president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day,” White House spokesman Bill Burton told reporters. “He communicates with his religious adviser every single day. There’s a group of pastors that he takes counsel from on a regular basis. And his faith is very important to him, but it’s not something that is a topic of conversation every single day.”
_________________________________________________

The person who said that is “obviously (not) a Christian. ..”

“The president is obviously a Christian.”

Its not obvious to other Christians

“He prays every day,”

Yes he has told us how he loves the Moslem call to prayer...PRETTY was the word used to describe his feelings...

“He communicates with his religious adviser every single day.”

Whats the name of this guy ??? whats the depth of the “communication” ???

“There’s a group of pastors that he takes counsel from on a regular basis.”

Im sure there are...But he doesnt seem to listen to them when they ask about his lack of church attendance...

“And his faith is very important to him,”

To a Moslem, practicing the Islamic faith is physical life or death..

“but it’s not something that is a topic of conversation every single day.”

It is if you are a REAL Christian...

The NY Posts aka Murdoch aka News Corp aka Fox News aka Saudi shareholders is shilling for the Imam.


Correct.

They have even been using the Liberal Media terms like “confused” and “mistaken” about people who believe Obama is a Muslim....straight off the Liberal Media playbook

They already have been calling Birthers an assortment of names....so no surprise they are shilling for Bamster on his Islamic background

That church that screams “God damn America?”

That would be different than any Mosque, how?

Reverend Wright is, if not in fact a crypto-Muslim, at the very least an anti-American Muslim sympathizer. Which slots him and his $25K-contributing parishioner into the very same rat hole.

Reverend Wright stated in one of his interviews that Trinity was a good place for former gang members and apostate Muslims because they believe that the only sin that a Black person can be guilty of is to fail to rebel against the White capitalist oppressors.

El Salvador has officially joined the Red regimes of Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Bolivia. South America is turning Red, dark Red, and little is being said to alert North Americans of the encroaching Red plague. Perhaps that’s because North America is moving in the same direction. The president of the United States has surrounded himself with socialists, and some of those closest to him have had a part in turning South America Red...

“his [alleged Christian] faith is very important to him, but it’s not something that is a topic of conversation every single day.”

As opposed to his DAILY public praise, promotion, protection, and proffering of Islam and its manifestations. Only thing missing is his public prayers - adhering to either religion.

Ask him who Abraham’s heir was. Few devious believers of any Abraham-derived religion would be clever enough to hedge the answer to conceal their true faith. A Christian would not hesitate to say “Isaac”; a Muslim would not hesitate to say “Ishmael” ... and that answer makes all the difference.

Thanks for the pics. . .each worth more than a 'thousand words'. Meantime, the WH cannot avoid 'stepping in it' re this "The president is obviously a Christian" and he "prays every day," response. It is 'dirt in the making' - the kind they usually try to arrange for their opponents to step in. This time, it is 'they' who are trying to clean their shoes off.

So, they are now, caught, 'protesting too much' and looking even more stupid and guilty for doing so.

As to the excuses:

"The president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day," . . .this seems an insult to Muslims; what do 'they' do. . .eat chopped cous-cous and call it prayer? And how do they know Obama is praying - does he pray 'on the job' or in privacy of his home quarters and he just reports that he has been praying. . .

They had better be careful; or there will be charges that Obama is violating separation of church/state per his religious activities when 'on the job' in White House. Which we can imagine, with his Muslim 'ties'; he most likely is. . .

As to Reggie Love; seem a huge story, right under MSM noses; and yet. . .like Prez.Bill; he is protected. Maybe Drudge will drop the big one, someday. . .before they drop him, that is - from 'net prominance'.

If he is a Christian, why doesn’t he publicly acknowledge that Islam is a false religion? Jesus Christ said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no man comes to God but by Me.” If this is true and Mr. President believes it, why does he deny it by his actions and words? According to the Apostle John, Mr. President denies it because he is “a liar and the truth is not in him.” You cannot be a Christian and believe that there is any other way to get to God! That’s Bible!

Muslims pray every day. Does that mean they're obviously Christians too?

what? he isn't a member of a Church? and he doens’t go to Church on Sundays?

IIRC, he's gone to St. John's across the street from the WH on Easter once, but I could be wrong (sorry, I don't follow the man's every move). If he is a Christian then he's a CEO (Christmas and Easter Only).

It does seem a bit strange that many if not most blacks have a strong affinity for muslims. Maybe its something that goes way back to early dawn of civilization and those with any good sense getting out of africa and the desert and those that stayed are to remain behind the rest of humanity for perpetuity.

I'd totally forgotten the 'cover the cross' incident. Thanks for the reminder.

What Christian would take offense to a symbol of Christianity?

Ummmm. A pseudo Christian?

In my lifetime, I cannot recall an administration that shot itself in the foot so often that the majority of their time was spent on 'damage control'.

I guess that's what happens when you have a Post Turtle pResident.

Interesting thing about that statement from the White House about King Hussein's strong Christian faith and his bevy of religious advisers: the statement didn't bother to name even one of those advisers.

Curious minds would like to know who these folks are, maybe a reporter (ha!) would like to ask them a question or two about Obama’s religious views and practices. Just to confirm to everyone the president's strong and abiding Christian faith.

But no, no names, just assertions. I guess that makes me just sort of pause and scratch my head.

Black liberation theology maintains that African Americans must be liberated from multiple forms of bondage — social, political, economic and religious. This formulation views Christian theology as a theology of liberation — “a rational study of the being of God in the world in light of the existential situation of an oppressed community, relating the forces of liberation to the essence of the gospel, which is Jesus Christ,” writes James Hal Cone.

Modern American origins of contemporary black liberation theology can be traced to July 31, 1966, when an ad hoc group of 51 black pastors, calling themselves the National Committee of Negro Churchmen (NCNC), bought a full page ad in the New York Times to publish their “Black Power Statement,” which proposed a more aggressive approach to combating racism using the Bible for inspiration.

Stanley Kurtz of the National Review claims that “A scarcely concealed, Marxist-inspired indictment of American capitalism pervades contemporary ‘black-liberation theology’...The black intellectual’s goal, says Cone, is to “aid in the destruction of America as he knows it.” According to him such destruction requires both black anger and white guilt. He claimed the black-power theologian’s goal is to tell the story of American oppression so powerfully and precisely that white men will “tremble, curse, and go mad, because they will be drenched with the filth of their evil.”

Obama does what Muslims do.
Obama says what Muslims say.
Obama has said the Muslim declaration of faith from memory in perfect Arabic and perfect accent.(has never said the Lord's prayer)
Obama has said my Muslim faith.
Obama is always in support of everything Islamic.
Obama has criticized American Christians as primitive people clinging to their God and their guns.
Obama does not attend any church.
Obama does not celebrate Christian holidays.
Obama politically spits on Israel, Britain, and Poland while praising every Islamic nation in the world.(all 57 of them coincidentally)

Gee. I wonder why anyone would think he might be a Muslim?
