Auster, however, lists the reasons why Obama is NOT a Christian (as he claims), and why he may be a stealth Muslim.
Why he is not a Christian includes these points:
Why Obama may be a Muslim:
- Obama's only Christian affiliation in his entire life was with the [radical, black liberation] Trinity United Church in Chicago.
- Since ending his relationship with Wright and leaving Trinity Church in April 2008, Obama has not joined any other Christian church.
- Obama has derided Christians as bigots who cling to their Bibles and guns and hate everyone who is different from themselves.
- Obama is not known for making comments to friends about his deeply felt belief in Jesus Christ.
Read it all here.
- In his Cairo speech in 2009, he said that he would defend Islam from anti-Islamic "stereotypes" wherever they appear.
- He has carried out that pledge in conspicuous ways. For example, under his leadership as commander in chief, the U.S. military has completely ignored and covered up the truth that the mass murder by Maj. Nidal Hassan at Fort Hood was a jihad attack on the United States.
- Obama's father was a Muslim, and therefore, according to Islamic law, Obama is a born Muslim.
- Obama attended a Muslim school for several years when he was a boy in Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world, and living under the guidance of his stepfather, who was a Muslim, just as his father was.
- Numerous relatives of Obama's on his father's side are Muslims.
I think Auster's best point is that Obama has neither joined a church nor spoken of a deep belief in Jesus Christ. His religion has been a cynical political ploy all along. He joined Wright's radical church in order to make political contacts and grow a base of support, not to seek communion with a higher power.
