Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: the word "change"

Many, many people are blind to the realities of Obama's character.

He championed a church for twenty years who's head pastor advocated Black Liberation Theology - to the point of bestowing Louis Farrakhan a "Lifetime Acheivement Award". This pastor, who oozed anti-semitism and racism from every pore, was a "spiritual advisor and personnal friend" of Obama throughout those thirty years. He performed Obama's marriage ceremony. He baptised his children.

Only when it threatened Obama's bid for President did he cut ties with this guy. Then, all of a sudden, this pastor was reduced to that of "an uncle" who was "retired from the church".

Obama has attended exactly 143 days during his stint as Senator. Experience, honesty, transparency is not in the equasion. Charisma is. He attracts people in droves. Yet they do not know him.

"And through his shrewdness he will cause deceit to succeed by his influence; And he will magnify [himself] in his own heart, And he will destroy many while [they are] at ease." - Daniel 8:25
