Trinity United Church of Christ

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by esther stewarat (United States), Sep 22, 2012 at 18:51

Mr. Pipes, saying that Obama is a Christian because he says he is isn't proof of anything.

You are aware that Trinity United Church of Christ preaches Black Liberation Theology, which is based upon the teaching of two men: Black Liberation theologians James Cone and Cornell West who have worked diligently to embed Marxist thought into the black church since the 1970s. If you or other readers are not aware of this, serious study needs to be done. Trinity United Church of Christ is based upon Marxist theology, not on the bible.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Obama presents himself as Christian and I have no grounds to doubt this is the case, even if his understanding is not normative.
