Barack Obama goes to a mosque to promote religious liberty


US President Barack Obama went to a mosque to ‘reaffirm religious liberty’:

Obama Reaffirms Religious Liberty in First Visit to US Mosque

February 3, 2016


President Barack Obama, on his first visit to a U.S. mosque as president, says Americans “too often” conflate Islam with terrorism.

“We’re one American family,” Obama told Muslim-Americans at the Islamic Society of Baltimore. He said the entire Muslim community is often blamed for the “violent acts of a few.”

He also said “inexcusable political rhetoric against Muslims has no place” in the country.

Earlier, Obama took part in a roundtable with Muslim-American leaders to hear their concerns.

“It will be an opportunity to do a couple of things. The first is to affirm the important role that Muslim-Americans play in our society and to affirm our conviction in the principle of religious liberty,”  White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Tuesday.

Obama has previously visited mosques overseas.

Countering anti-Muslim rhetoric

Obama’s first visit to a U.S. mosque comes during a presidential campaign in which Republican candidate Donald Trump called for a Muslim database and a temporary ban against any new Muslim immigrants entering the United States following the December 2 terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California.

While many prominent Republicans, including U.S. Sen. John McCain and fellow presidential candidate Jeb Bush, condemned Trump’s call for a Muslim ban, candidate Ben Carson noted last year that someone who belongs to the Islamic faith is unfit to serve as U.S. president.

“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” Carson said in a September 2015 interview on NBC’s Meet the Press.

Obama has not addressed the candidates’ anti-Muslim remarks directly, but has spoken broadly against such rhetoric on several occasions, most recently and most forcefully during his final State of the Union address last month.

He called on Americans to reject any politics that target people because of race or religion.

“When politicians insult Muslims, whether abroad or our fellow citizens, when a mosque is vandalized, or a kid is called names, that doesn’t make us safer. That’s not telling it like it is. It’s just wrong,” Obama said in his January 13 speech. …

Collaborating with Muslim communityMuslim-American groups have long lobbied Obama to visit a mosque.

Islam is not known for being particularly tolerant of religious liberty.  Many nations dominated by Islam will not even allow other religions to have their own buildings or even to meet together privately.

As far as Barack Obama goes, he is not considered to be a champion of religious freedom.  His forcing Catholic-related institutions to pay for birth control and abortion, his Administration’s pushing of the homosexual and transgender agenda against those who have religions objections associated with aspects of it, and his seeming indifference to many of the Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Copts, and Protestants affected by the ‘Arab Spring’ and Islamic State have not endeared him to various churches.

Barack Obama, himself, claims to be a ‘Christian,’ which he truly is not.

Various ones have wondered if Barack Obama’s upbringing may have at least made him either a Muslim or a Muslim sympathizer. Here is something from my book Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term:

Is Barack Obama a Muslim Sympathizer?

Many have wondered if Barack Obama is a Muslim sympathizer. The answer to that question seems to be yes. He did grow up in Muslim Indonesia, however, and has had more early Muslim contacts than has anyone else ever elected as President of the United States. Therefore, he would probably have more reasons than most U.S. presidents to have sympathy for certain Muslim perspectives.

Here is some of what Barack Obama’s Fight the Smears website quoted about this:

Newsweek: Obama’s only personal contact with Islam came as a boy when he moved to Jakarta, Indonesia, with a stepfather who mixed his Islam with Hindu and Animist traditions…

Boston Globe: His Kenyan paternal grandfather and Indonesian stepfather were Muslim…

Thus, while the selected quotes seem to have been intended by the Obama campaign to minimize his ties to Islam, Barack Obama has more early ties to Islam than has any President of the United States in history.

Interestingly, in 2012 Newsweek referred to Barack Obama as “The First Gay President,“ (WHISTLEBLOWER MAGAZINE: THE FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT The 1 honorary title Barack Obama doesn’t want – but definitely deserves. World News Daily, January 3, 2013) which would not be appropriate if he was truly Muslim or a real Christian.

Oddly, years ago, Barack Obama told Charles Bolden, the head of the National Aeronautic Space Administration (NASA), to set as one of his top priorities trying to make Muslims feel good about their historic contributions to science (Harnden T. Barack Obama: Nasa must try to make Muslims ‘fee good.’ The Telegraph, July 6, 2010). This is an unusual top priority for NASA (space exploration and U.S. interests always presumably had been its historic top priorities).

Interestingly, notice a report concerning Barack Obama and his long-term pastor, Jeremiah Wright:

According to Mr. Klein, Mr. Wright directly contradicts Mr. Obama’s narrative of having little contact with Trinity United Church. Instead, Mr. Wright alleges that he was Mr. Obama’s close spiritual and political adviser, someone who for more than 20 years shaped the future president’s worldview. In fact, the pastor claims that he was like “a second father” to Mr. Obama.

Furthermore, Mr. Wright says Mr. Obama possessed an “Islamic background” and despite his conversion to Christianity has never abandoned his Muslim roots (Kuhner JT. Jonathan Wright can sink Obama. The Washington Times online, May 17, 2012).

The fact that Barack Obama was influenced by Jeremiah Wright seems confirmed by many matters, including the fact that Barack Obama wrote a book in 2008, The Audacity of Hope, which had the same title as an earlier sermon he reported that he heard Jeremiah Wright give (Obama B. Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance. Crown, 2007, p. 292).

As far as influence from Islam, like he had done before, on August 10, 2012, Barack Obama hosted an Iftar dinner related to the Islamic observance of Ramadan (President Obama’s Remarks at the White Houser Iftar Dinner. Huffington Post online, May 17, 2012). So, there are apparent ties to that faith.

Some have suggested that Barack Obama is actually Muslim and is under a taqiyya arrangement with Islam (a provision that supposedly authorizes deception) in order to deceive non-Muslims so he can advance Islam and groups likes the Muslim Brotherhood (Klein J. Muslim Brotherhood and Obama: Partners in Taqiyya. January 24, 2012). This author cannot look into Barack Obama’s heart, so how deeply involved theologically he is with Islam is a question that only he and God can answer (cf. 1 Samuel 16:7). Barack Obama, himself, publicly claims as his religion his version of Christianity.

The front cover of the January 2013 edition of the magazine whistleblower calls Barack Obama “THE FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT” essentially because of how he was raised and how his Administration has handled various matters (WHISTLEBLOWER MAGAZINE: THE FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT The 1 honorary title Barack Obama doesn’t want – but definitely deserves. World News Daily, January 3, 2013) —not necessarily because they believe that he is somehow a “secret Muslim.” (Thiel B. Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term. Nazarene Books, 2012, pp. 32-35)

Barack Obama has repeatedly taken steps that a real Christian would not. Here is something else from my book Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term::

Here are a dozen reasons that some have challenged Barack Obama’s repeated claims about really being a Christian:

  1. He stopped regularly attending outside church services after becoming elected President of the United States (except for some public events; cf. Matthew 23:6-7)–so his sincerity is doubted.
  2. He has repeatedly pushed the homosexual agenda (cf. Romans 1:18-32).
  3. One of his first acts after taking office was to increase international funding for abortions. He has made numerous public statements supporting abortion (Stafford, Cardinal James Francis. Cardinal’s Address to Catholic University of America, November 13, 2008. Catholic News Agency. viewed 03/01/09).
  4. On an international trip, he referred to the Muslim book as “the Holy Quran” (Moussly M. Obama cites Quran to reach Muslims from Egypt. Al Arabiya News, June 4, 2009). Real Christians do not consider the Quran as holy.
  5. While in office, he attended the first “feeding” for Ramadan multiple times. Christians are not supposed to observe holy days of other religions.
  6. He has been found to carry a Hindu monkey god (he showed this publicly in June 2008 and said this was one of the things that helped keep him grounded: Mosk M. Indian Americans Take Note of Obama Because of Hanuman. Washington Post, June 27, 2008). No Christian intentionally carries around pagan idols or relies on them.
  7. His U.S. Supreme Court appointees are believed to be supporters of on-demand abortion.
  8. He seems more to support “freedom of worship” than “freedom of religion.” This has carried forward in his stance on forcing the paying for various forms of contraception, including abortive pills, as he seems to feel that his form of morality should trump those who have religious beliefs to the contrary (Nakamura D, Boorstein M. At prayer breakfast and with birth-control decision Obama riles religious conservatives. Washington Post, February 2, 2012). Barack Obama has often crossed a line that should concern all who profess Christ.
  9. He seems to claim that political forms of covetousness are consistent with his “Christian Faith” values (cf. Exodus 20:17; Nakamura D, Boorstein M. At prayer breakfast and with birth-control decision Obama riles religious conservatives. Washington Post, February 2, 2012).
  10. He regularly seems to advocate class warfare (cf. Exodus 23:2-3; e.g. Obama B. Transcript: President Obama delivers State of the Union speech. CNN, January 24, 2012).
  11. He has increased the regulatory burden on some Americans excessively (cf. Jesus’ warnings Matthew 23:4-5) and will do more of that. Some of that burden, in certain fields, is also a type of censorship. Government censorship, of religious and other ideas that used to be considered protected speech in the U.S.A., will increase (Amos 8:11)—and ultimately even the internet will be affected.

He and all others should open their Bibles and practice genuine Christianity, before they are subject to being misled by the modified, ecumenical religion that will come upon the whole world (cf. Revelation 13:3-4). (Thiel B. Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term. Nazarene Books, 2012, pp. 31-32)

Barack Obama’s promotion of the LGBT agenda is so strong, that OUT magazine (an LGBT promoting publication) called Barack Obama a hero and their “Ally of the Year’ a few months ago (see Obama called ‘hero’ and named LGBT ‘Ally of the Year’).

Whether or not he believes much in Islam, he certainly often does not promote real biblical values.

His promotion today seemed to be more about Islam that it was about religious liberty.
