Wright: I “Made It Comfortable” For Obama to Accept Christianity Without Having to Renounce Islam
thegatewaypundit.com ^ | 5-15-2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 05/16/2012 1:31:19 PM PDT by servo1969

In a shocking interview yesterday on the Sean Hannity Radio Show, author Ed Klein said Barack Obama’s former pastor helped Obama accept Christianity without having to renounce Islam. The Daily Caller reported:

Klein also said Wright told him he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having renounce his “Islamic background,” which Klein said he has on tape.

Klein spoke more on this in a separate interview with NewsMax:

Klein says Obama originally sought out Wright to discuss community activism.

“Quickly the conversations turned from picking up garbage on the street and getting streetlights put up on street corners to political matters and religious matters,” Klein says. “And the Rev. Wright turned into really a substitute father figure, who guided Obama in the two major areas of his life.”

The first area was Obama’s identity — just who was he?

“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.

Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian.

“He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.

The second area was Obama’s political philosophy. Wright introduced Obama to Black Liberation theology.

The scary reality is that if you want to be a mover and shaker in black Chicago, that is the church you attend.

Now that it’s in the open, it adds nothing new to the debate. It only adds more exposure, hopefully, to the broad voting public.

“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.

Judging by his attempts to interpret certain Scriptures in recent days, he still doesn't know anything about Christianity.

Easiest for a Muslim to join a “christian” church that hates Jews and America I would suppose.

Which only shows how little Rev. Wright knows about both religions.

Perfect example of Wright’s influence is Obama’s plan for nuclear disarmament, because Wright taught him that bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki was evil and racist.

Obama never should have gotten near the White House, but hey, America came close to electing John Kerry, an out and out leftist traitor.

I though originally it said wright Jesus in a way that he didn’t have to renounce Islam.?

I’m guessing teaching Obama Jesus was a prophet, that’s what Islam says...

How could a pro same sex marriage pro baby killing individual know Christianity - he can’t and his actions prove he doesn’t give a rip either.

So now one deep in Islam given a Christian cover to wear and one a leader of a cult who also wears a swiss cheese cover of Christianity. That’s evil hiding in the open - with both candidates.

Either way, it’s one nation under evil - evil finally gets it shot in getting in by both parties.

Wright was not preaching Christianity. He was preaching, from what we’ve seen, a mixture of social “gospel” and Black Liberation Theology with a nod towards islam.

“plan for nuclear disarmament”

Though I don’t think the AC will be an American prez (Omen III touted that notion), I imagine what you said will be part of the Antichrist’s platform.

“And by ‘peace’ shall destroy many” - obviously the context is false peace.

The Antichrist understands dark sentences (Satanic) but eventually runs into Jesus Christ. And it’s all over.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Daniel%208:23-25&version=KJV

Daniel 8:23-25

King James Version (KJV)

23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

Allegedly, Wright’s “church” is full of muslims.

Of course, no on can be a muslim and be a real Christian. obama always was—and is—a muslim, and he is no Christian at all.

PHOOEY to all those who have said over the past several years that anyone who says “obama is a muslim” is crazy, a conspiracy theorist, a racist, or all three!!!! Wright confirms that we’ve been right all along—obama is a muslim!!!!

I seem to recall that Wright’s original Religion degree centered on Islam as he worked his way into his ministerial position so this whole thing sounds very real.

His Chicago church was just “shrubbery in the suburbs” — everyone has something out front to make the house look nice.

I don’t know about the Islam. I just know he was a hard-left proponent of Black Activism and theology. The only thing I can find about his being a muslim is a reference from Free Republic.

So...black palestinian Jesus just wanted to spread the wealth around...or something like that.

Well, that tells one all that is necessary about Wright’s theology..... I’ve never heard anyone who I considered to be a true Christian who WOULDN’T have answered that question with a very quick “let me tell you that it is only the individual himself or herself who can convert to being a follower of Jesus Christ . Someone else can help to show the way but that is all.....” John 6:44 “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.”

You only have to read Dreams for My Father to know his motivation. Obama says straight out, when he would try to talk to black people about community organizing, they would eventually ask what church he went to. When he said he didn’t belong to a church, they would instantly turn off. They didn’t trust anyone who didn’t belong to a church. So he wen’t looking for one to join, and found the minister most in line with his ideoloy.
