Obama's pastor says he's "not religious"

Rate this post

Interesting nuggets keep coming out from Edward Klein’s new book, The Amateur, an unauthorized biography of Barack Obama. Among the startling and intriguing claims in the book are former President Bill Clinton calling Obama an “amateur” (thus, the name of Klein’s book), Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s testimony that Obama had offered him $150,000 in hush money to keep quiet during the 2008 presidential campaign, and Caroline Kennedy’s seller’s remorse.
Now we learn of another interesting tidbit that confirms our well-founded suspicions: Despite Obama’s insistence that he’s a Christian, his own pastor of 20 years — Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ — says the Obamas are “not religious.”

Obama and Wright, before they threw each other under the bus

Billy Hallowell reports for The Blaze, May 17, 2012, that Klein gave Fox News’ Sean Hannity the three-hour recording of his discussion with Wright, copies of which were also obtained by The Blaze. Hallowell writes:

Church is not their thing. It was never their thing,” Wright says of Barack and Michelle Obama. “She was not the kind of black woman whose momma made her go to church, made her go to Sunday school…so the church was not an integral part of their lives before they got married — after they got married.”

After Wright made these comments, Klein said, “But the church was an integral part of his politics…because he needed that base.” Wright agreed with this statement, at one point saying “correct.”

You can listen to Wright for yourself by going to The Blaze.
What Wright says is entirely consistent with everything we know:
1. All the important people in Obama’s childhood and teen years were not Christians:

  • His mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was raised by non-religious parents (Stanley Armour and Madelyn Dunham) and “detached” from religion.
  • Obama Jr.’s stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, was an Indonesian Muslim. When Soetoro married Obama’s mom, he adopted her boy who converted to Islam. There is no record of Obama ever leaving or renouncing the Muslim religion.
  • Obama Jr.’s childhood-to-teen mentor Frank Marshall Davis was not just a Communist atheist, he was virulently anti Christ.
  1. Obama’s own behavior shows he’s not religious:
  • He attends Sunday church service infrequently and irregularly, and even skips Christmas service. Even “cafeteria” pick-and-choose Christians go to church at Christmas!

So on May 4, when Obama proclaimed May 12, 2012, as America’s National Day of Prayer and said, “On this National Day of Prayer, we give thanks for our democracy,” to whom was he praying and giving thanks?

UPDATE:

Breitbart has a new audio tape in which Ed Klein says “when I asked the Reverend Wright about this whole question of Islam and Christianity. He said, well, you know, Barack Obama was steeped in Islam. He knew a lot about Islam from his childhood. But he knew very little about Christianity. And I made it easy for him to feel not guilty about learning about Christianity without turning his back on his Islamic friends.”

  1. The Desire of Kings 
       
    When the King wants more money from the public he finds out what they want and promises it to them for their money. He does not reveal his own plans and desires are different. 
      
    The desire of Kings has always been world conquest and the ownership of all land and of all people. The King has no use for the people who are not fighting for him and the things he wants. 
       
    If the people want to protect themselves they need to have a Constitution limiting the rights of Kings and be willing to fight if the King exceeds these limits. 

     
  2. The main problem in our country is that there are too many lazy, complacent, mentally unchallenged people who are content with the status quo — as long as they’re getting their freebies from the govt. — through a myriad of programs — they’ll vote for the one that promises everything will keep coming.
    Also, we have to contend with the opposite group — those who getting extreme money from govt. projects or have inside workings with financial institutions. They’ll also vote for the status quo.
    We have too many selfish people who don’t care for the good of this country, but only for themselves.
    God help our country!

  3. Dr. Eowyn, thank you for this most revealing post! I agree with Floridahank wherein he has set out the selfish criterion governing many Americans.
    Dr. Eowyn, I find your point most important, as Obama thanks “democracy”, like it is an entity in and of itself. He just simply refused to thank Our Lord directly on the national day of prayer. If he refuses to acknowledge the Triune God, then Jesus will refuse to acknowledge him before the Father.

     
  4. Really shocked to hear about the Mother-in-Law! Did not know that. She’s helping to raise the Obama daughters from what I understand.

     
  5. I’ve been saying this for years. He slept in the pew of that Church to convince others that had truly lived the black-American experience that he was one of them. Smoking pot on the beach in Hawaii is not the hard knocks of the inner city. He had to build a constituency. He had to build an image. He had to build a facade. He had to build a heterosexual family. He is an empty puppet. A man without a country. A man without a faith. This Manchurian Candidate had to fill in the blanks left by the CIA and Ford Foundation. It’s fairly obvious.
    “They have eyes to see but do not see and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are a rebellious people.”
    And we’ve all suffered from the cult of personality winning over common sense and God given instincts.
