Wright: I “Made It Comfortable” For Obama to Accept Christianity Without Having to Renounce Islam
thegatewaypundit.com ^ | 5-15-2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 05/16/2012 1:31:19 PM PDT by servo1969

In a shocking interview yesterday on the Sean Hannity Radio Show, author Ed Klein said Barack Obama’s former pastor helped Obama accept Christianity without having to renounce Islam. The Daily Caller reported:

Klein also said Wright told him he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having renounce his “Islamic background,” which Klein said he has on tape.

Klein spoke more on this in a separate interview with NewsMax:

Klein says Obama originally sought out Wright to discuss community activism.

“Quickly the conversations turned from picking up garbage on the street and getting streetlights put up on street corners to political matters and religious matters,” Klein says. “And the Rev. Wright turned into really a substitute father figure, who guided Obama in the two major areas of his life.”

The first area was Obama’s identity — just who was he?

“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.

Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian.

“He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.

The second area was Obama’s political philosophy. Wright introduced Obama to Black Liberation theology.

Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left
by David Horowitz

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Amazon Book Review:
"Vastly Illuminating!" September 25, 2004
By Kat Bakhu

"I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.

It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.

Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.

This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air."

Re: 911...

August, 2003: Ward Churchill Caught On Tape Advocating Terrorism [vs Fellow Americans]

Audio link at Michell Malkin's website (included below)

Question from audience:
You mentioned a little bit ago, "Why did it take a bunch of Arabs to do what you all should have done a long time ago," that's my question.

Churchill: I'm gonna repeat that, tell me if I got that right: Why shouldn't we do something and how do you you move so they don't see you coming.

As to the first part, not a reason in the world that I could see. I can't find a single reason that you shouldn't in a principled way —there may be some practical considerations, such as do you know how (laughter from audience)

—you know, often these things are processes. It's not just an impulse. And certainly it's not just an event.

And the simple answer, although it probably should be more complicated, but I'm not being flip and giving the simple answer, is:
You carry the weapon. That's how they don't see it coming. You're the one...

They talk about "color blind or blind to your color." You said it yourself.

You don't send the Black Liberation Army into Wall Street to conduct an action.

You don't send the American Indian Movement into downtown Seattle to conduct an action.

Who do you send? You. Your beard shaved, your hair cut close, and wearing a banker's suit.

There's probably a whole lot more to it, you know that. But there's where you start. .."

Good catch. Now all we need is some video footage to see if he eats or drinks during the daytime hours to confirm.

I did the opposite when I was in the ME. I would plna my vacations so I would be out of country during Ramadan. At most I only had to suffer a week or so.

And he seems to easily fool people on BOTH sides. The commie left must laugh their collective butts off hearing and reading the responses to their propaganda. Responses from both sides, his simpleton base, and those on our sides who don't pay attention close enough to learn or understand the truth.

Barack Hussein obama is NOT a typically observant muslim. He drinks beer, he ate dog—I doubt if he ever made Hajj. And he supports the “gays”, and may be “gay” himself.

But he’s such a terribly effective muslim fifth columnist!!!! islam and sharia have made great strides in America due to his machinations, and then there are all those “Arab Spring” events, plus the war in Libya, continuing support of islamic occupation of Serbian lands, and continuing sabotage of Israel.

So I doubt if any muslim is going to attack him for his pro-”gay” activities.

Besides that, islam and the “gay” movement are de facto allies—part of the new axis of evil (New World Order, islam, feminists, and “gays”) arrayed against the Judeo-Christian civilization!!!!

The scary reality is that if you want to be a mover and shaker in black Chicago, that is the church you attend.

Oprah knew this. She also realized at a point, she'd have to distance herself from his extremist rhetoric. She left the church before Obambi did.

Now that it’s in the open, it adds nothing new to the debate. It only adds more exposure, hopefully, to the broad voting public.

Au contrare...

The GOP candidates were asked religious questions about obeying thy husband, creationism, etc.

Ask Barack Hussein Obama if he believes that Jesus Christ walked among men after He was crucified. I want this out in the open since he labels himself a Christian. Barack is on record saying that Jesus is a "historical figure" and that Jesus Christ is NOT the only way to eternal salvation.

I will not let him ride on the coattails of our Savior while secretly holding Him and His followers in contempt.

Barack Obama is an anti-Christ figure who leads the flock astray. He is a deceiver but he knows that without the church going black vote, he's toast. So he lies to them. He lied in 2008 when he told them that he opposed same sex marriage and abortion.

I stand by my statement that it adds nothing new to the debate. His Christianity vs Muslim faith has already been part of the broad debate. This simply underscores the validity of the suspcion.

Now, yes, it’s up to the Hannitys, and other members of the MSM at large to pick up the debate. I won’t hold my breath. But if your answers are to be had, it will have to be through that venue.

Wright in any orthodox sense is not a Christian himself, so how could he introduce Obama to Christianity. Wright’s brand of “Christianity” (which is really Afro-centric Marxism) believes: “A God without wrath brought men without sin into a world without judgment through the ministrations of a Christ without a cross.” (Niebuhr)

Amidst 0’s zero records, there is also zero record of a baptism. Every even slightly orthodox Christian church baptizes new Christians—and we know Obama wasn’t baptized as a baby...so, since he said he’s a Christian, when and where was he baptized?

Could you imagine if a candidate for president ever said he doesn't believe in God? He would have absolutely no chance of getting elected.

Well both Romney and Obama are frauds as I see it. Both liars and both have their own interests above that of this country...they simply sing the song of the moment and mood of the country, but I don't think the public is really buying it.

My customers have all said they are completely fed up with the election system....many not voting at all for that.

Today I got another call from the RNC pushing Romney....I got great pleasure telling them I would not be supporting Romney....then of course the song and dance by not doing so I would be splitting the ticket....I of course debated that issue and told them when they can put forth a candidate I can vote for then we'll talk...until then my vote is against both Obama and ROmney and I would be voting down ticket.

Even Mitt Romney’s faith is a matter of discussion by the MSM in this campaign. Therefore Obama must be made to make his own declaration of faith. It’ll p!ss off his atheist liberal supporters to even pretend to be Christian.

Ask him things like did Jesus walk among men after He died. Did God create the universe or did God spring out of the Big Bang bewildered and surprised by the growth of life on Earth?

There are plenty of ways to make him stutter on these matters.

“Wright introduced obozo to the church’s “down low club”

Frank Marshall Davis in Hawaii beat Wright in indoctrinating Obama to the Gay-Marxist ‘down-lo’ club. Davis was Obama’s ‘mentor’ between the ages of 11-18.

And don’t forget that Obama said that the Arab ‘Call to Prayer’ is the most beautiful sound in the world.

His own pastor doesn't know if Obama converted? I'd say that most probably then, he didn't, even to Black Liberation Theology which is a Marxist construct hiding behind religion...Obama, his campaign, Wright's church, etc.

More religious hypocrisy on your part Jeff...here only 8 days prior to posting this you were deriding NoRedTape for bringing the "religion" of a POTUS candidate into a thread discussion.

Is it always "religious discussion of Mormons NOT 'OK' for thee, but 'OK' for me" with you???

Last try at reason with you Colo.

What you are doing, following me around like this and picking out my comments to try and attack when I am quoting what Jeremiah Wright said and commenting on it, and then interjecting your attempts to make some type of arcane point about it where you and that issue were not even being discussed (like you have done now on the last five posts) are just pitiful IMHO.

So, keep following me around FR and hounding me, you are only showing your own true colors in so doing.

I will stand on my record any day, and it doesn't involve following people around and trying to smear them in public with such hyperbole.

So...one more time, as I have said to you now on two prior occassions, let's try reason and a sincere attempt to put it to rest. JR called a truce. We have much more to concentrate on than trying to make this personal...like getting as many all-American conservatives into the House and Senate as possible for example.

Give this a rest and lets do that. What do you say?

I know some people even today who will get very angry if you say obama is not a Christian. Interesting that the person getting angry isn’t a Christian so I don’t know how he would know.

and how do you know this? what form of Christianity does TennNana practice? what church do you attend; so that those of us who are not of your faith can sit in judgment on whether your claims to Christianity are pure enough to meet our own personal standards? Christ said judge not that ye be not judged.

“For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again”
