It's quite ironic that you of all people are claiming others don't follow Jesus.

Its a good thing you don't call self a Christian. You can begin with explaining why you don't.

I thought it was pretty clear: What stops you from calling self a Christian?

You're right on this. Everything Barack Obama does is calculated. Everything is done and planned to further himself and his career. He doesnt care about anything or anyone than himself and he'll do and say anything to propel himself forward.

From the archives (2004)...

Obama’s Fascinating Interview with Cathleen Falsani

The most detailed and fascinating explication of Barack Obama’s faith came in a 2004 interview he gave Chicago Sun Times columnist Cathleen Falsani when he was running for U.S. Senate in Illinois. The column she wrote about the interview has been quoted and misquoted many times over, but she’d never before published the full transcript in a major publication.

Obama's self description...

I am a Christian.

So, I have a deep faith. So I draw from the Christian faith.
On the other hand, I was born in Hawaii where obviously there are a lot of Eastern influences.
I lived in Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world, between the ages of six and 10.
My father was from Kenya, and although he was probably most accurately labeled an agnostic, his father was Muslim.
And I’d say, probably, intellectually I’ve drawn as much from Judaism as any other faith.

...

So, I’m rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people. That there are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and there’s an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived.


This is not the talk of someone who is a Christian. There are not many paths to the same place.

Trinity is mentioned in the interview.

With your lack of actually having a point?

Does anyone really care other than right-wing nutjobs? By the way, at least democrats are not following a guy who is in a cult that passes as a religion.

Then it sounds like he's driven by a very conservative philosophy.
