20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam and Mohammed
#1 The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam
#2 The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer
#3 We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world including in my own country.
#4 As a student of history, I also know civilizations debt to Islam.
#5 Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.
#6 Islam has always been part of America
#7 we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities
#8 These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islams role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.
#9 America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.
#10 I made clear that America is not and never will be at war with Islam.
#11 Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism it is an important part of promoting peace.
#12 So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed
#13 In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.
#14 Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.
#15 Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality
#16 The Holy Koran tells us, O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.
#17 I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.
#18 Weve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.
#19 That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isnt. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.
#20 I also know that Islam has always been a part of Americas story.
20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity and the Bible
#1 Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation
#2 We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.
#3 Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?
#4 Even those who claim the Bibles inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christs divinity are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.
#5 The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.
#6 From Obamas book, The Audacity of Hope: I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sexnor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.
#7 Obamas response when asked what his definition of sin is: Being out of alignment with my values.
#8 If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldnt have to keep coming to church, would they.
#9 This is something that Im sure Id have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. Theres the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people havent embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that theyre going to hell.
#10 I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I cant imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. Thats just not part of my religious makeup.
#11 I dont presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.
#12 Ive said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know I do not believe she went to hell.
#13 Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke Gods willthey have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.
#14 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.
#15 You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothings replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And its not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who arent like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
#16 In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology
#17 On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.
#18 We have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own
#19 All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra (applause) as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer. (Applause.)
#20 I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.
I don’t think you’re allowed to use the lyin’ kings name and the word “blowing” in the same sentence. :>}
no comment necessary
>>3 We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world including in my own country.<<
On need to look no further than the reshaped New York City skyline for proof.
-- Barack Obama
Yeah, but what about America?
It’s obvious where his heart lies, and it’s not with Christianity or this country.
If the MSN didn't report it, did it really happen?
I have never had a doubt that Obama is a moslem. If you have a doubt, ask a moslem if he thinks Obama is one of them. I did and it confirmed my own suspicions.
RE: Wait a minute. What is your source for these quotes? NBC? CBS? CNN? ABC? NYT? LAT? WP?
Just click on the link to every one of those quotes. Those are the sources.
Great response! Wish I could think that fast!
a) Weakens America/AmericansI have yet to have anyone raise a single substantive counter example in several years of posting this.
b) Distances America's allies
c) Strengthens America's enemies
d) Serves Islam
e) Harms Israel
Or some combination of the above.
If he succeeds in destroying The Great Satan, his praises will be sung in every mosque for a millennium. What greater legacy could any muslim aspire to?
Burrock Housain bin Obummer seemed to have neglected to tell us that while criticizing the Catholic Church for not accepting homosexual marriages and against abortion he forgot to criticize Islam for killing homosexuals and not allowing abortions.
Hmmm. Maybe I missed the most important one out there. To me, his flub in an interview with George Stephanopoulos, regarding his “Muslim faith” then George correcting him to “Christian faith”, is the biggest tell out there. No one raised Christian, and who is deeply faithful in Christ, would ever make that flub. Ever.
Nobody will *ever* convince me that Osama Obama has *ever* been a true Christian,nor will they convince me that he is,today,a true moslem.
Let me just clarify that statement a little. I don't believe that either Mormonism, nor the Watchtower are Christian religions. That said, I don't know that they, as they use the Bible, might not be moved by the Holy Spirit to accept Christ as Savior, even if they never go far enough to leave those organizations. I might be wrong there.
So, if Bambi says he's a Christian, maybe he is.
But I can, and do, judge whether someone is living a Christian life. And he doesn't.
But if I were making a bet, though, where I had a chance to make some money, and we could find out for sure, I wouldn't be betting against you.
“But I can, and do, DISCERN whether someone is living a Christian life. And he doesn’t.”
Nah, I’m judging. I have no problem with either doing it, or being judged.
anyway, either term, he’s NOT
Isn’t it amazing that this country would elect a radical Muslim as President yet to date never a Native American one, nor a Jewish one, nor an Italian, nor an Asian? Of all the ethnic groups, Democrats had to put one in power that has been causing the US the most problems.
