Frank Marshall Davis was not a "Communist Anarchist." He may have been communist, but he was not an anarchist. See Barack Obama | Mark Davis's Blog.

Both his half brother Roy ( Abongo) and his half sister Maya are Muslim. They went to the same schools Barack did in Indonesia and later Hawaii.

Is Barack Obama's Christianity Real?

It is known that prior to his coming to Chicago Barack often attended prayer in Muslim mosques. Although he was not known to attend prayer at Chicago Mosques he was known among the muslims there.

Obama first announced to his socialist friends his intention to get involved in politics at a party at Terrorist bomber William Ayer's Chicago home. Antoin "Tony" Rezko, who would later be convicted of bribery of an elected official, became Obama's campaign fundraiser and treasurer. One of the things decided that night was that Obama would stand a better chance of being elected if he was a Christian.

Arrangements were made for Obama to meet and talk to members of the Chicago black clergy. One of those Obama met was the charasmatic Jerimiah Wright, a practitioner of Black Liberation Theology.

Wright's church Trinity United Church of Christ was a fast growing church deeply involved in community activities. The messages brought from the pulpit each Sunday were not about God's love or the salvation of Jesus' Christ. Instead they were racist rants about oppression by whites against blacks often filled with vulgarity and anti-Americanism.

Obama says Wright led him to Christianity.

How many people really care what religion he is? Does it really matter? If so, why?

Wow, this doesn't matter to me at all.

If anything, I find his knowledge of multiple religions an asset to his role as President.

That is certainly a reasonable fear. I don't plan to vote for Obama--muslim or not. I wouldn't vote for any candidate who was a muslim. I don't dislike anyone because they are muslim--I just don't want them running the government--anymore than some people wouldn't want a fundamental christian in a high government office.

Just come on out and admit it Obama. What is there to be ashamed of?
I hear ya! One thing is for certain: Obama is NOT a Christian.

Obama could very well be a Muslim and there is a pretty good chance of that. Obama's father is an African-Arab, as classified by the Kenyan government. See: This article dealing with BHO Sr and a study of Arab-Africans.

Americans (the more ignorant ones) look at a pic of Obama's dad and think he is black, which is incorrect. Barack Hussein Obama, I (Sr.) is an Arab who happens to have dark skin.

Obama is an Arab-American, not African-American, and he lived and studied in a Muslim school in Indonesia. There is a good chance BHO is a Muslim himself and the whole "Christian" charade he plays is for political reasons.

I myself have about 20% of suspicition that Obama himself is a Muslim at heart and associated himself with the racist Trinity United "Church" in Chicago as they are a huge voting block in that district.

After all, what Christian believes in racism, homosexuality, abortion up to the day before a child is born (Obama is actually FOR a mother killing a child without hours AFTER the child is born), or gay marriage, or legalization of prostitution, among others?? Furthemore, Obama is associated with Malcom X, Louis Farrahkhan and other well know Muslim haters.

Christianity is not a huge organized group of like minded people, like muslimism. There are many sects, or denominations of christians. They do not always agree with each other. Many are autonomous. Many don't like the "big wig" televangalists who are on tv. I doubt that any of them have much power to pull government strings. In fact, most christian denominations don't even consider other groups, other than their own--catholics, baptists. methodists. charismatics, ect, are all seperate from eachother, in many different ways. If they all consoladated into one group. they would be as formldable as the muslims. No way is that going to happen. I grew up in the middle of all these groups, and I know how they think.

The problem with Obama is he never admit he has muslim background, on other hand you can open your big mouth and post your background here. Nobody cares about you because you are not running for POTUS, while Obama is. Now you understand?
