Donald Trump is being criticized from both RINO and Democrat party candidates for failure to address and rebuke claims that Obama is a Muslim.
I was taught if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks and acts like a duck then more than likely it is a duck. I believe it was Sarah Palin who stated you could put lipstick on a pig, but at the end of the day it’s still a pig.
Now before anyone gets their tighty-whities all crunched up in a deep crevice, I know what the Holy Bible instructs us to do. We are not to judge anyone because God does the judging. However, God does tell us to use discernment in all things.
In 2008, during an interview with ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Obama made reference to “My Muslim Faith”, was then immediately corrected by the host, to which Obama says “My Christian faith”. Watch for yourself. Who makes that kind of a mistake? No one does. You know if you’re a Muslim or a Christian. However, the Koran teaches lying can be used to benefit Islam.
Bukhari (84:64-65) – Speaking from a position of power at the time, Ali confirms that lying is permissible in order to deceive an “enemy.” Lying is permitted when the end justifies the means.
Then we have Obama bowing to the then-Saudi King Abdullah in 2009. Watch here. The news media tried passing it off anywhere from a nod to OH BOY there’s a quarter let me pick it up. The White House denied the entire thing saying it was not a bow, but Muhammah Diyab, a commentator in a Saudi paper, approved of Mr Obama’s gesture, and saw it as a clear bow.
State department protocol decrees that presidents are not to bow to other leaders. The Bible instructs us that we are to bow to none other than Jesus Christ. Wouldn’t you think Obama would know this being the Christian he says he is?
Here are some Obama quotes showing his admiration for Islam and his bias against Christians.
- “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”
- “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
- “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
- “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
- “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
- “Islam has always been part of America”
- “We will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”
- “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
- “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
- “I made it clear that America is not – and will never be – at war with Islam.”
- “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
- “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”
- “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”
- “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
- “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”
- “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”
- “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”
- “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”
- “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
- “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
Now, let’s compare those quotes to what he has said about Christianity:
- “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”
- “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”
- “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”
- “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”
- “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”
- From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”
- Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.”
- “If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they.”
- “This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”
- “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”
- “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.”
- “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.”
- “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”
- On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”
- “You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
- “In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”
- “On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”
- “We have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”
- “All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra— (applause) — as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer. (Applause.)”
- “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.”
Obama praises Islam for being so “tolerant” and criticizes Christianity for not being accommodating enough to Muslims. He also says that we must not “slander the prophet of Islam.” Yet there is no mention of violent, oppressive shariah law, nor is there any mention of the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East at the hands of Muslims.
Obama lauds Islam’s great history yet goes after conservative Christians who want to practice their faith in the public square. Whether it’s Hobby Lobby or Catholic organizations and charities being discriminated against by Obamacare, Obama has shown little tolerance for those groups when it comes to their free exercise of religion.
With all this evidence I now ask you; if it walks like a duck, look, quacks and acts like a duck, do you believe it’s a duck or do you believe it’s an eagle?
It’s time for Americans to open their eyes and see things the way they truly are instead of being told what to see and believe. In other words, it’s time to call a spade a spade.
