Muslim Dictator, Qaddafi, Calls Barack Obama a Muslim

a

In this clip, Libyan dictator Moammar Qaddafi declares to his people that Barack Obama is a Muslim, stating:

“Now America is approaching their Presidential election, one is a black candidate who is originally from Kenya, African, and Muslim and studied in the Islamic school in Indonesia.” “His name is OBAMA!” “All the people in the Arab world, Islamic world and Africans have applauded him and are expecting good results”. 

To be sure, Barack Obama is not a Muslim.  He is a Christian who for 20 years, 1000 Sundays, has been under the teaching of Rev. Jeremiah Wright.  Yet the question that this clip raises is, “Why does a Muslim dictator believe Obama is a Muslim?”

The reasons are clear.  Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim name.  Senator Obama is the son of a Muslim father.  His mother married two Muslim men.  He has Muslim brothers.  He was raised, for a time, in a Muslim country where he studied Islam in school and prayed in Muslim Mosques.  He has stated that the Muslim call to morning prayer is the “most beautiful sound in the world.” In his book, he claims to have had a transformative encounter with the teachings of Muslim leader Malcolm X.  The current leader of the Nation of Islam has called him the Messiah, and Obama has long associated with outspoken anti-Semites.  Put simply, Obama, while not Muslim, has a closer relation to that religion than any person ever to seek the office of the presidency.  

And yet, Barack Obama is certainly not a Muslim.  He is a Christian, at least as long as Christianity can be redefined, as it has been by the founder of his personal theology, Dr. James Cone, as a mixture of traditional Christianity and Islam.  No wonder Qaddafi is confused.  So is Mr. Obama.

Rev. Wright has affair with a Married Woman

http://www.nypost.com/seven/09092008/news/nationalnews/o_pastor_in_sex_scandal_128142.htm

According to the New York Post, Rev. Wright had an affair with a married woman who worked at a church in Dallas officiated by one of his students.  While this information is not relevant to a discussion of Senator Obama’s beliefs, it is none-the-less a news story about one of the key figures in our exploration, and therefore worthy of reporting.

Barack Obama: America is not a Christian Nation

Here, Barack Obama gives the keynote address at the “Call to Renewal” in Washington D.C.  In it, Senator Obama states that America is not a Christian nation.  

Lest posting a simple quote with no context seems unfair, here is the official BarackObama.com version of the segment.  In it, Obama derides James Dobson, rejects Old Testament Passages with no context at all, and frames the Sermon on the Mount as a political passage that precludes national defense.

A Montage of Obama Statements on Abortion

Certainly not all Christians are opposed to abortion, and a traditional interpretation of the New Covenant would suggest that the work of Christ on the Cross is sufficient even for such a sin as this.  However, the vast majority of American Christians, as well as the Catholic Church agree that abortion is both a sin, as well as a great moral scourge.  Therefore, it seems relevant to include the senator’s views on the practice when attempting to construct a well-informed, balanced view of his beliefs.

To that end, every year that he has been a member of the United States Senate, Senator Obama has received a 100% rating from NARAL, an organization devoted to protecting and extending abortion rights nationwide.  That means he is “perfectly” pro-choice, opposing limitations even on partial-birth abortions.

Freedom Of Choice Act

In this video, Barack Obama is seen speaking to Planned Parenthood, and asserts that his FIRST action as President of the United States would be to sign the Freedom Of Choice Act.  FOCA would overturn almost every existing restriction on abortion, including parental notification laws and laws limiting partial birth abortions.  

The most terrifying aspect of this act is that it makes SPEAKING OUT against abortion by members of the government a potential crime.  The ramifications of this law are staggering and far reaching.
