In his own words: Barack Obama on Christianity and Islam
am thinker ^ | 4/17/14 | t lifson

Posted on 04/17/2014 9:36:40 AM PDT by bestintxas

A website called Now The End Begins has compiled 40 comments by Barack Obama on Christianity and Islam. Collectively, they create quite an interesting picture. I admit that there may be instances of the president speaking as favorably of Christianity as he does of Islam, but I am not aware of them. I do remember in the 2008 campaign that he said he had accepted Jesus Christ as his savior, and that was in response to public awareness of his attendance at Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church, Trinity United. What the president left unsaid is the nature of Jesus as understood in Black Liberation Theology. But that is a discussion for another time.

The list has been reprinted here and here. (hat tip: iOwnTheWorld.com). See what you think:

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 civilization’s 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 Islam’s 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.”

Sounds to me like pandering to the enemies of God and America.

The president has said that he was attracted to Christianity by such tenets as our being our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper.

For him to use a completely misunderstood and misinterpreted Bible story as his reasoning behind accepting Christ, just shows how he completely lacks understanding of Christianity.

Is there a positive statement in that list regarding Christianity? I didn’t notice a single one. Yet, all of the Islam references were positive in tone.

Islam is the religion of the anti-Christ and obama is a tool of that foul beast.

President Barack Obama is not now, nor has he ever been a Christian. Attending Rev. Jeremiah Wrights’s hate-filled church, is not an example of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

True, if you count the Barbary Coast Pirates our Marines defeated.

I doubt that barry has ever been aware of that part of our history!

You can believe he’s going to get a better understanding of it, when he stands before our Lord and is told “Depart from me, I never knew you.”

Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”


This is from a 2007 article by N Kristof. It bugs me when a writer ‘quotes’ someone inaccurately, even if that someone is Obama. The actual quote is as damning as the inaccurate one , so Lifson was just too lazy or unprofessional to be accurate.

Funny thing is that in the same article Kristof asserts that Obama speaks Indonesian, but later on in the campaign Obama (in one of his faux self deprecating comments) stated . “I don’t speak a foreign language. It’s embarrassing!”

Re: muslims ‘shaping’ America

IIRC, the primary reason for establishing the US Marine Corps was to defeat the Barbary pirates who were muslims. Gotta give credit where due. :=)

Look. It’s obvious that the man hates anything Christian or Jewish, and loves the members of the middle eastern death cult.

2. “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”

When I go to Israel and hear that crap come over the loudspeakers, I get creeped out. It's spooky sounding.

It has the same tone as the “allihu ackbars” that the jihadists recite...INTONE...when they are beheading someone, as far as I am concerned.

Evil made audible!
