Posted on 03/15/2008 4:00:54 PM PDT by stickman20089
Yesterdays edition of USA Today had a story about Barack Obamas grandmother in Kenya, in which she slams the Clinton campaign for circulating photos of Obama in Muslim garband then states that she is a Christian: Obamas grandma slams untruths.
Obamas grandfather had converted to Islam from Roman Catholicism and taken the name Hussein, Sarah Obama said, but his children had inherited only the name, not the religion. Each person should be able to choose how they worshipped, she said.
In the world of today, children have different religions from their parents, she said. She, too, is a Christian.
Just one little problem with this statement.
In April of last year, Sarah Hussein Obama told the New York Times she is a devout Muslim.
Sarah Hussein Obama, who is his stepgrandmother but whom Mr. Obama calls his grandmother, still rises at 5 a.m. to pray before tending to her crops and the three orphans she has taken in.
I am a strong believer of the Islamic faith, Ms. Obama, 85, said in a recent interview in Kenya.
Exactly. Liars often have difficulty remembering their lies.
They always seem to get riled when they are caught.
Is this the grandmother he's met once, and was the grandfathers 3 or 4th wife?
Of coarse you do.
You are an agent of division. ;-p
Maybe she is an Islamic Christian
Thanks for joining Frepper FEB 20, 2008.
where do you think its coming from? I sure have wondered about this church deal ...that has definately caught fire
Looks like Obama’s Chickens are coming home to roost
This could get her in some serious trouble.
The April 30th, 2007 New York Times story quotes her as saying she is a Muslim. Here's the link:
The USA Today story from March 5th, 2008 reports her as being Catholic, but it isn't in quotes. The USA Today story is by an AP reporter.
Looks like lying is a family trait.
I’m sorry for defaming the NYTimes, when it was AP...this time.
Really, people need to read news carefully. Especially suspicious: when someone is quoted, then attributed something without quotes.
They're democrats; that's how they do things.
Somebody had to tell her to change her story and it was not Obammy’s campaign manager. It was Obammy, himself.
And if he's telling her to change her story, I'm pretty sure he's changed his own story.
Do you think it’s at least a little absurd that people on this site are actually advocating for McClain and Hillary now? Some are anybody but Obama, but Hillary and McClain are far more dangerous to me.
That is, according to the Religion Of Peace..........
