Farrakhan on Obama: 'The Messiah is absolutely speaking'

-- Farrakhan does not represent all muslims - in fact, a very few (I am told). This is the same reason I do not take a child's sexual abuse by a Christian priest and extrapolate it to cover all Chrisitanity.

Farrakhan is part of an organization called "The Nation of Islam" which in no practical manner speaks for all the Islamic nations in the world.

What constitutes Islam in the OP's mind ?

To me Islam is a religion preached by Muhammad in 1400 years ago or so and written down in the Qu'ran . As far as I know having read it Obama is not mentioned in the Qu'ran but heck I may be wrong....

There is enough debate about what Muhammad truly meant as the prophet for Allah amongst Islamic scholars ( just as there is for the Bible or any other"sacred" texts for that matter) so I would amazed if "Islam" could come up with a consensus on anything anyway....


Religion being one of the most divisive thing in the world, it seems rather churlish and childish to try and score cheap political points by picking and choosing what turns out to be conveniently damaging to some presidential candidate simply because some tiny insignificant group may or may not have have said something....

I would be extremely surprised if Qu'ranic Scholars around the world believed Obama to be the "messiah". More than surprised in fact. Astonished.


Mind you I suppose if one is supposed to accept any deity as a reality then I don't see what would be odder about Obama, George Clooney , or my next door neighbour being the "Messiah" either.

Just about as likely in my opinion ! If we are supposed to blindly accept Shiva, God, Yaweh, Allah as supreme beings and "reconginsed" prophets as harbingers of spiritual enlightenment then why not ? As I recognise no supreme beings, prophets etc... I suppose Obama as a "Messiah" would be just another kooky idea to me, dreamt up by people with too much imagination ( if they truly believed that) or simply as political manipulation of the most obvious and transparent form... either way it is risible.



The dissemination of "facts" such as these is just plain dangerous and these kind of silly assertions are nothing but a form of propaganda.

What worries me is that there will be plenty of people more than ready and willing to believe that "Islam" the dreaded opponent of democracy and liberty ( not my sentiments by the way but looking at this forum I have seen those views espoused over and over again) is on the side of Obama and as such Obama is also public enemy no 1 of America and must be ousted by all means possible , and once again reason, fact and logic will go out of the window...

Islam is not the enemy and try to manipulate the current situation for political ends is just sad and a bit pathetic.

In a word, no.

It is an exceedingly stupid assertion since Obama is not and never has been Muslim. The Muslim world is quite jealous of their members and do not deify non Muslims.

But as Moose, said, this is just a piece of political propaganda inserted into an inappropriate forum area.

Calm Dude asked a reasonable question...... Well.... I suppose that there are often times those who take the lunatic fringe seriously. Suspect Farrakhan ranks somewhere below my aunt Sophies' hairdressers' cousin, who has a best friend with an autistic Uncle, who knows a barber, whose son went to school with this girl, whose cousin says that this faith healer down the street who foretold about this family in Toledo, etc, etc, etc ........... YEAH RIGHT!
