Obama's Muslim upbringing
By Grant Swank

America Talks reports that Barack Obama was reared as an Islamic, though Obama discounts that, and understandably so now that he is seeking the US presidency.

Nevertheless, researchers have revealed his Muslim childhood. One of the main influences came from his stepfather in Indonesia. There as a Muslim, Obama spent "at least four years in a Madrassa, or Muslim seminary. A source close to the investigation said 'He was a Muslim, but he concealed it.'"

His Muslim father gave Obama his middle name: Hussein. Barack rarely uses that name in public, particularly in America where he is in contest for the White House.

After his parents' divorce (his father, being black, came from Kenya), Obama's mother wedded an Indonesian student. Of course, Indonesia is a blatant Muslim country. According to US Intelligence, the nation is composed of primarily Muslim schools that teach legalistic Islam Wahhabbi.

That particular segment of Islam is especially harsh, Koran-abiding, and following the law of the cult to the nth degree. The Wahhabbi proclaims that non-Muslims have no rights, should not exist, and Islamics should particularly hate Jews.

The schools receive moneys from Saudi Arabia that in kind is laden with Wahhabbi Muslims.

When understanding that this was Obama's childhood teaching, one then can understand how he could live twenty years with a screaming, anti-American mentor such as Jeremiah Wright. Wright was preaching exactly what Obama believed as a closet Muslim.

Obama found what he needed: the cultic Muslim cadence from Wright's pulpit plus membership in a Protestant denomination. With that membership, he could say that he is "Christian." He also could relate that he found Jesus there.

That Jesus, by the way, is not the Bible's Jesus. It is the Muslim Jesus, the latter considered merely a prophet, not the divine incarnation. If Obama had met the Bible's Jesus, Obama would not be supporting anti-biblical morality such as abortion and sodomy.

Further, the United Church of Christ (Congregational) will permit everything preached but orthodox biblical teaching. It does not adhere to the Bible as divine revelation. That denomination considers each person writing his own holy writ. Therefore, that denomination endorses same-sex recreation and abortion as well as relativism in ethics that is, situation ethics.

Obama then becomes a member of a denomination that permits each member to write his own religion. At the same time he has a "pastor" who preaches as a mosque cleric.

All this meshes with how he had been reared as a Muslim.

He marries Michelle, lawyer, of like mind.

They both are well educated, members of a Protestant church and rise to the top with good looks, charm and a suave demeanor. But in fact they are closet Muslims, part of the sleeper cells current in the United States.

Concerning his father coming from Kenya, that opens up another Islamic connection with his cousin, Raila Odinga. He tried to become president of Kenya. He lost the election; however, his followers have brought about "ethnic cleansing" in retaliation.

The cousin promised the country a total Islamic rule even though Muslims count only 10% while Christians count 80%. The cousin promised a legalistic Muslim regime where Christians were eliminated and the Koran's sharia was implanted.

When the cousin was running for office in Kenya, Obama called the cousin during his New Hampshire campaign to wish his relative well in the elections in Africa.

What does that say about Obama?
