Is Obama a closet atheist?

Watch this speech, and ask yourself, “Is Obama a closet atheist?”

He asks sharp questions like these:

1) “Even if we did have only Christians in our midst, if we expelled every non-christian from the United States of America, Whose Christianity would we teach in the schools? Would it be James Dobson’s or Al Sharpton’s?”

2) “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK, and that eaing shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith. Or should we just stick with the Sermon on the Mount, a passage that is so radical that it is doubtful that our own defense department would survive its application.”

How could anyone ask these questions without knowing that religion is a complete charade?

    Interesting read, I watched that entire speech and had thought that he was (especially due to the lines you have quoted.

    Hmmm. As a foreigner, let me say there might just be hope for you Yanks yet. Lets just hope the Republicans don’t buy this election as well.

    Given the impossibility of a non-Christian getting elected to office in the US, I think that Obama being a “closet” athist is the most we will see – at least until after he has begun his second term…..

    I thought the same thing when I first saw this.

    Another classic by Obama. Where did he give this speech?

    When did he give this speech?

    This is ridiculous…just because he’s insightful enough to understand that the whole Bible shouldn’t and couldn’t possibly be followed as an unbreakable code doesn’t mean he’s automatically an atheist. I believe these things myself and consider myself far from an atheist. Anyone who views religion as purely dogma needs to reexamine it, which is one of the reasons I think Obama would be such a breath of fresh air for our country (despite his pandering politics). Sorry if I spoiled your atheist wet dreams…

    It certainly sounds like he has some reservations, but who really knows for sure?

    Rawb, I read your whole comment there and it was making sense till that last part. What the hell is an Atheist wet dream? This is just a question. I have listened and read lots of things in the bible and some of the things that Obama says are true. Have you read those parts? What part of the bible should we all reexamine? That part about slavery being okay? That part about stoning gays? How about all those babys being killed and women and children? Oh maybe your thinking about the 10 commandments that nobody can follow if they are human? Come on Rawb you read those parts again and tell us if you agree with them and are you going to start stoning gay people?

    Well if he is that would definitely be a good thing, he could still pray to Franklin Delano Rosevolt.

    Our husbands in Iraq and our wounded vets need
    to hear about this new Bible discovery.
    Suppose it could be documented that this Bible
    prophecy was verified to have been fulfilled in our

    day predicting the war in Iraq?
    Thousands of people are entering this web sight
    Critics have sought to rip this biblical discovery a
    part in order to disprove it.
    Such attempts continue to fail as ambitious Bible
    critics seek to expose it as another hoax.
    Critics eventually fade as the people who see
    value in this fulfilled prophecy are moved to
    inform others of this possible miracle arriving in
    our day!

    Could God have revealed an actual Bible prophecy
    supporting America going into Iraq? Everyone is
    invited to prove or disprove this newly discovered
    If you can demonstrate a way to disprove this claim
    you may become a guest on Glenn Becks show or even
    Shaun Hannity. If you can bring a case forward
    which supports this prophecy as being true you
    may also become a guest.

    This Bible discovery was mentioned on the Rush
    Limbaugh show where millions heard of this web sight.
    If you can find any evidence disputing this claim
    or any evidence confirming it true, please contact
    Shaun at…

    “Media track” dogtrack88hotmail.com

    Or contact Glenn Beck and make your case

    to him. glennbeck.com You may contact

    Rush Limbaugh if possible?

    For additional information

    concerning this matter contact

    Ed Cook at ecdistibutions or
    edmund@eternaltruth.net or 208 251 3519

    You could receive national recognition for worthy evidence
    if your information is convincing. Why?
    If no one can dispute this biblical claim this discovery
    can be submitted in the media as an actual fulfillment of
    biblical prophecy. If not it may also be exposed as
    a hoax.
    The new President of the united states may be determined
    by the condition of our economy and the war in Iraq.
    What could a Bible prophecy depicting America as
    the biblical eagle bringing freedom to Iraq have upon
    this presidential election?
    Could it perhaps reveal the presidential election from a new
    spiritual perspective?
    This biblical prophecy could unite our American resolve
    for supporting the Iraq war and help our troops.

    A subsidiary of Salem communications has already
    declared this work to be a monumental discovery of “biblical
    proportions” in their recent national press release.
    To confirm this national press release go to the Salem
    Xulon press release at- http://www.eternaltruth.net or enter
    their Salem web sight.

    There has been no theological criticism having any
    teeth which has demonstrated convincing red flags
    which cast doubt upon this claim. The Bible can be spun
    by people who often take things out of proper context.
    Today modern writers cleverly manufacture their own
    evidences from the Bible and years later we then discover
    such insights were false.
    This means that the specific criteria for documenting
    a fulfilled Bible prophecy is even more difficult to accomplish
    than many secular discoveries which also require high
    standards from sound research.

    We need a consensus from several credible Christians
    who can collaberate a consistency of legitamate insights
    which identify key prophetic types and shadows clearly
    identifying the cyclic nature of true prophecy within
    Bible history.
    Such an insight for understanding true Bible prophecy
    should not require a degree in theology. We welcome

    We welcome the critics who aspire to prove this wrong.
    No credable evidence has been presented showing
    any confirmed manipulation of the biblical text nor its

    specific Bible scriptures which reveal the
    great modern eagle (America)l transforming Iraq

    How did you discover this in the Bible? I have crossed right over those verses many times and did not understand them. Now they are as plain as day. My heavans, I am still having chills an hour after I saw your youtube.
    Why is this not national news? Is Satan trying to keep this from coming out? I experienced a strong negative influence trying to keep me from watching this video. I was being impressed that it was a hoax and watching it would waist my time. I am so glad I decided to watch the entire thing and discover how wrong that temptation was which tried to discourage me away from seeing this. You bloggers out there listen..What you are discussing has been dwarfed by something far more important which has just hit! It is as if lightening struck and you all slept through its impact. What ever you do go see this Bible youtube on the guys websight. http://www.eternaltruth.net

    Fist off, I am a religious white person, but am also educated and observant enough to see the cut in the tape before he states, sarcastically, you must not be reading your bible. Where did he put down the Bible?

    Where is the entire video of the speech?

    Not all Atheists’ are bad people with bad morals, in fact, my morals are not great and I’m on the religious people’s side. The best man I know is atheist. His morals are strong and his decisions are steady, unlike that of the Priests and elected officials we have today. I understand not all Priests and elected officials are bad, but some are and religion is the common element between them.

    What should be wanted in a president is someone who is willing to listen to what we want and try to make it happen and if that person is Atheist, who cares. Tell me what a religious person has over an atheist person, the Answer, a one track mind and an ability to get the uneducated religious vote. I don’t know who I am voting for, but these false ads are not going to effect my decision. Some of them may not be false, but until the entire video is released, the smart stay skeptical.

    Ahh, Sensible American, but you forget that the “uneducated religious vote” is HUGE in this country.

    Obama is an Atheist? That’s actually a good reason to vote for him.

  18. on 04 Nov 2008 at 12:20 pm 18.Hermes said …

    Obama is not an atheist, unfortunately. Neither are the others in this race.

  19. on 06 Nov 2008 at 3:49 am 19.nugget said …

    Obama is just stating that it is a abomination what religion has done to people worldwide. Religion has only divided people as classifications based on their beliefs.

    Hi Guys;

    For those of you who have doubts about Obama. God wanted him to win for he knows the future. We have a great prophet of God in the US. I’ve been reading his prophecies very carefully before they happen, and also people who attended his meetings in the past e.g. in 1998, 2000 & 2002 remembered what he had said about this election. I saw him on TBN prophecying that there wouldn’t be a woman president now, there’ll be a time but not now. He prophecied in July 1998 and again on March 2, 2002 that there would be an African American president in the U.S.A. In 2000, he said the president after Bush would be African American. Nov. 18,07 it reads many a christian shall say, alas, we have a Democrat who is actually a Republican. In june 28, 2007 says ” A president that I will bring into the white house – they will say he is ungodly – he does not know God. Even as Jesus disguised himself for the great feasts, so I’ve disguised this man’s heart. When he comes to the white house, not only shall he be Mine, but he shall pray as a man that has never prayed in the White House etc.” Please read this on Kimclement.com. There are so many prophecies about different things. Every thing he said came to pass, during the primary, about super Tuesday etc. Please also read sept.5th and sept. 27th. It seems the white house will be like a prayer house. God is going to do great things. Iam sure a lot of christians are going to be so surprised. So you might as well start rejoicing for God is in control.

    It is possible. The majority of Americans voted that atheists are the most distrusted people in the country. It wouldn’t surprise me if Obama kept his true feelings under wraps.
    Who knows though. We can only ponder.
    It would be great if he is, but if he isn’t, I still respect that he’s not a dogmatist.

    Obama knows nothing about religion, the context of the bible, and is a cartoon character made up by the liberal media. He is not a Christian. He was a member a black hate group led by Jerimiah Wright who taught Black Liberation Theology (google it). He has a 116 IQ and never should have gotten into Harvard. The Dow Jones has dropped 2000 pts since he was elected and it will get worse (next will be the credit card crash). He should stick too making up lies like his mother was a Christian and he never went to a Muslin school, and let real politician run this country. Stay at home with the rest of the crooks in Chicago and be a community activist. He is like the guy that just won American Idol and now thinks he’s Mick Jaggar. He’s a joke. I’m sorry but everyone that voted for this clown is going to cause a lot of pain for everyone else. In 30 years, this will go down as one of of the biggest scams in history.

    We have a stimulus plan, but an economist knows the ecomony runs on the banking industry. If that’s not fixed, we’re screw. I don’t these people are stupid, but they sure are acting like it. The stimulus plan means squat until the banking industry is fixed. Let Obama get one of his crooks from Chicago to decide what to do and put another one of his buddy’s on the board, and tell every he’s a Christian, and start talking about how the Sermon on the Mount wasn’t really that significant becuase you’re either a Muslim (and he’s just a prophet to you), an atheist, or you just love yourself, Barry.

    Thank you.

    Anonymous, keep mumbling. I’m laughing at you. GWB wrecked this country, and anyone would be an improvement over him.

    You are the real prophet here. I have never seen a man like BHO who is so out classed in every room he walks into.

    Wow, I hope he is an atheist. It is embarrassing having a guy so lazy, so clueless and so outclassed in every room the guy walks into.

    This is the only time I have been embarrassed to be an American. We vote for our POTUS like we are voting for the next American Idol. Now we are paying a huge price. A is right on target.

    “Wow, I hope he is an atheist. It is embarrassing having a guy so lazy, so clueless and so outclassed in every room the guy walks into.”

    If he worships himself would that make him an atheist?
