White House says Obama is Christian, prays daily
Washington Post ^ | August 19, 2010 | unknown

Posted on 08/19/2010 11:32:57 AM PDT by matt1234

WASHINGTON -- The White House says President Barack Obama is a Christian who prays daily.

White House spokesman Bill Burton made the remark Thursday, hours after a poll showed 18 percent of Americans think Obama is Muslim, up from 11 percent who thought so last year. A third think he's Christian, and 4 in 10 say they don't know Obama's religion.

--SNIP--

Burton said: "The president is obviously a Christian. He prays every day."

Barack (arabic for "blessed") Hussein (arabic for "handsome") Obama has already he's willing to lie his skinny ass off on everything from keeping your insurance coverage to what he said about the GZ mosque. He had, and still has, every motivation in the world to deny his heritage in order to maintain the political power to see his heritage win out. After all, no confirmed muslim could win election as POTUS in 2010 America, right?

He lives on the knife edge of plausible deniability and he will use it to say one thing and do another until his dying breath. His mission is more important than the truth. It's "Al-taqiyya" - lying to non-muslims on a grand scale. It's how he's wired and there's no changing it.

I can't imagine why people would be confused about the religion of a man named Barack Hussein Obama, biological son of a muslim, adopted son of a another radical muslim, who attended a muslim school for six years, who abandoned his Americanized nickname of Barry for Barack in college, etc., etc., etc

Obama is all smoke and mirrors on everything. He thinks he can just stand there and smile and say one thing to one group and the opposite to the next group. He's a great South Chicago used car salesman!......nothing more!

Bzzzzzzz. Wrong answer, White House. And suddenly, millions of Christians know Obama is not a Christian.

Praying every day means you’re a Christian about as much as lacing up Nikes every morning means you’re a world class marathoner.

There is only one thing that makes one a Christian: repenting of sin and accepting the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross as payment for sin. Anything more, anything less, is just so much blubbering.

The fact that the White House had to make this statement is a sign the dam is breaking on the closet Muslim. After all, his action speak for themselves and they have not been the actions of any Christian I know.

You obviously don't know the kind of Christians that Obama knows.

The only prayer that the God of the Bible will hear from Obama is a call for salvation through Jesus Christ.

Excellent point. We must also remember that America was founded on Judeo/Christian principles and beliefs and God has blessed our country because of it. But the blind following and adoration of Obama may cause God to remove his umbrella of grace. It happened in several instances to Israel. God gave them up to their depraved ways.

Continue to pray a solid follower of Jesus will move into the White House in Jan. 2013.

The only way they will fill those seats and also at the "dinner" fundraiser is if they give the tickets away. Church is $25. Dinner is $60.

Wonder if they can use their food stamps..

If that were Christians they’d be fined and jailed for obstructing traffic and creating a disturbance.

Same double standard we’ve had with Democrats and Republicans for decades now.

Time to take back America from the Godless heathens/leftists.

“Barack (arabic for ‘blessed’)”

No, it is not. No such spelling in arabic for blessed. AND it was never an alternative way to spell it until obama claimed it was, and it was never Swahili either.
Look up the name barack. The only ones you will find are bam and his daddy, who, BTW, did NOT spell his OWN name that way. BAM spelled his daddy’s name that way when he filed the application for his COLB.

That's because Arabic doesn't use the Latin alphabet.

************************************
Part of old post:
I found something strange, but don’t know if it’s important or not. Barack is the ANGLICIZED, (WHITE,) version of Barak. obama Sr. never used the name “Barack.” I found a government document he wrote after he had already gone back to Kenya. His name was BARAK, not Barack. Every article now written about him contains the Anglicized version of his name because that is the name Barack Obama GAVE HIMSELF. It was NOT the name his father used.
The meaning of the name Barack is Blessed-NOT TRUE
MUBARAK means blessed.
Note on this list the ONLY two people with the name Barack.

My daily prayer is that God would deliver America from the evil that afflicts her(Obama and his Administration), remove him and replace the Administration with godly men and women who once again could restore us as a nation under God.

IMHO, Obamas background disproves he is truly a Christian. His many years in Reverend Wrights church doesn't make him Christian - only his belief in Jesus Christ does and I really don't know or see that. His mulim influence in the past and his liberal/socialist/marxist mother makes me wonder about his strict adherence to our Bible and the teaching of Jesus Christ. I can not judge him but facts and past make his true Christianity suspect.Only God knows his true heart.
