Obama’s Christian Faith

Obama was talking about his muslim faith when he was corrected by Stephanopoulos. Sure, Obama meant to say his Christian faith not his muslim faith... Really?

A Candidate, His Minister and the Search for Faith By JODI KANTOR, New York Times, April 30, 2007.

Twenty years ago at Trinity, Mr. Obama, then a community organizer in poor Chicago neighborhoods, found the African-American community he had sought all his life, along with professional credibility as a community organizer and an education in how to inspire followers. He had sampled various faiths but adopted none until he met Mr. Wright, a dynamic pastor who preached Afrocentric theology, dabbled in radical politics and delivered music-and-profanity-spiked sermons.

"He had sampled various faiths..." Really? Was buddhism one of these faiths. Had he sampled Jewish faith? Come on folks, what a convenient way to avoid saying he used to be a muslim!

It is hard to imagine, though, how Mr. Obama can truly distance himself from Mr. Wright. The Christianity that Mr. Obama adopted at Trinity has infused not only his life, but also his campaign. He began his presidential announcement with the phrase “Giving all praise and honor to God,” a salutation common in the black church. He titled his second book, “The Audacity of Hope,” after one of Mr. Wright’s sermons, and often talks about biblical underdogs, the mutual interests of religious and secular America, and the centrality of faith in public life.

I am not sure if you can call what Rev. Wright practicing is Christianity.Exhibit One: Church Bulletins; Exhibit Two: The videos below. Finally; there is the issue of Rev. Wright being a former muslim which I am still working on to uncover more evidence about. When Obama's pastors' affinity for nation of islam leader and all of the above come together, it all starts to make sense, doesn't it?

In the 16 years since Mr. Obama returned to Chicago from Harvard, Mr. Wright has presided over his wedding ceremony, baptized his two daughters and dedicated his house, while Mr. Obama has often spoken at Trinity’s panels and debates. Though the Obamas drop in on other congregations, they treat Trinity as their spiritual home, attending services frequently. The church’s Afrocentric focus makes Mr. Obama a figure of particular authenticity there, because he has the African connections so many members have searched for.

All through this, while speaking at Trinity's panels and debates, while attending services frequently, Barack Hussein Obama had no idea what kind of hatred Rev. Wright was spewing from the pulpit... Sure, we believe you Barack. He is not the Rev. Wright you knew.

Mr. Wright, who has long prided himself on criticizing the establishment, said he knew that he may not play well in Mr. Obama’s audition for the ultimate establishment job.

“If Barack gets past the primary, he might have to publicly distance himself from me,” Mr. Wright said with a shrug. “I said it to Barack personally, and he said yeah, that might have to happen.”

It seems to me that the deception is working...

  1. Jeremiah Wright brought Obama to the Lord? Why do I find that so difficult to believe? Wright’s rants are anything but Christian.

    The fact that Obama didn’t correct himself when he said “my Muslim faith” speaks volumes to me. I recognize that anyone can misspeak. I often do. But I catch myself!

    In case you haven’t seen the video, I have it at my site:
