The facts are the facts! Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii. His mother Ann Dunham moved with him to Indonesia, where she put him in a school that taught him Islam. He was enrolled under the name of Barry Sotoelo. He was taught to pray by facing Mecca five times per day. He was taught about Islam and grew up for a few years with Islam as his religion. This occured during the formative years of Obama's life.

Over the last year, Obama spent alot of time denying a Muslim background. Now he claims to be a Christian of the Black Liberation Theology persuasion. A review of BLT will reveal that it is the most violent and racist form of Christianity in existence. The Catholic Church and other denominations have warned the Christian world that Liberation Theology is not a constructive force in Christianity. Indeed, the current Pope (Benedict XVI) and Pope John-Paul before him both dissuaded their followers from Liberation Theology. LT has its basis in Central American socialism and is a destructive force in Christianity. Many religious have died in the name of LT. Rev. Wright, one of Obama's mentors, has a deep and abiding respect for Farrakhan, a black Muslim. I don't understand how the left can keep denying the facts. Are they afraid of something? You bet they are.
