Is Obama Muslim or Christian? – A fact-based answer


Again, the news media are upset that Donald Trump did not correct a questioner who claimed President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim.

The recent CNN poll found that only 39 percent of Americans know the president’s religious denomination. According to the survey, 29 percent think he is Muslim, 4 percent think he is Catholic, 2 percent think he is Mormon and 1 percent think he is Jewish.

Is Obama a Muslim? Is Obama a Christian? Why is it important to find out who is he indeed?

Let us begin with the tradition-based definitions.

Who is a Jew?

A Jew is any person whose mother was a Jew or any person who has gone through the formal process of conversion to Judaism.

Who is a Muslim?

A Muslim is any person whose father was a Muslim or any person who has gone through the formal process of conversion to Islam.

Who is a Christian?

There is no family related definition for who is a Christian. The most common definition of who is a Christian is that is a person who follows and defends the teachings of Jesus Christ presented in the Ten Commandments and the entire Bible.

Now let us apply those definitions to Obama.

Obviously, he is not Jewish since his mother was not Jewish and he has not gone through the formal process of conversion to Judaism.

Obviously, he is formally a Muslim since his father was a Muslim. In order to stop being a Muslim, Obama had to convert officially to a different religion. However, there is no information on his conversion to Christianity. By the way, I do not blame him for a non-conversion since the price for such conversion is the death as proclaimed in the Islamic Law. The Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, the only Christian church Obama attended, and its pastor Jeremiah Wright were the black nativist, anti-true-Judeo-Christian and anti-American in nature – the Christian in name only.

There is no major speech of Obama with the appreciation of Judeo-Christian religion and tradition in general and as it has been developed in America. Moreover, there are many Obama’s speeches with the appreciation of Islam and Muslim tradition, and on the harm, the actions of Judeo-Christian America have done to the Muslim countries.

Just recently, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has clarified the Islamic Iranian chant “Death to America!” – this chant, Rouhani said, does not mean the personal death to every American – that means the collective death to American Judeo-Christian tradition which was an inspiration to the American actions, which have harmed the Muslim world.

Do you see the same anti-Judeo-Christian, pro-Muslim logic in the Obama-Rouhani duet? It is very important to understand this Obama’s logic – this logic is behind most of his domestic and foreign decisions, which affect considerably our lives in America and Israel.
