Barack Obama's Alleged Christianity

If Barack really thinks he's a devout Christian, he's deluded...or was indoctrinated.

Barack Obama, Pied Piper of Hope and Change, claims to be a devout Christian who prays to Jesus every night and even goes to church on Sunday if he's not busy.

Barack also says he tries to follow the example of Jesus who was "always prioritizing the least of these over the powerful."

Unfortunately, Barack apparently thinks that 'the least" are not powerless unborn babies, but the mothers who want to abort them (amd have the power to do it).

Jesus never said that.

Let's put aside the subject of Barack's attitude toward religion before he joined a church in Chicago about twenty years ago. (Barack's father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., was a Muslim who became an atheist.)

Barack not only favors legal abortion without any limits and taxpayer funding of abortion, but actually tells listeners that his pro-abortion position isn't at odds with Biblical values and does not make him "less Christian."


Jesus came to save all, not to bless abortion, Barack.

Terence Jeffrey:

"Barack Obama is the most pro-abortion presidential candidate ever.

"He is so pro-abortion he refused as an Illinois state senator to support legislation to protect babies who survived late-term abortions because he did not want to concede as he explained in a cold-blooded speech on the Illinois Senate floor that these babies, fully outside their mothers' wombs, with their hearts beating and lungs heaving, were in fact 'persons.'

"'Persons,' of course, are guaranteed equal protection of the law under the 14th Amendment."


"I think that the bottom line is that in the end, I think women, in consultation with their pastors, and their doctors, and their family, are in a better position to make these decisions than some bureaucrat in Washington. That's my view."

"Again, I respect people who may disagree, but I certainly don't think it makes me less Christian."

It's an UNChristian view, Barack.

How pro-abortion is Barack?

He has a 100 percent pro-abortion rating from NARAL, supports partial-birth abortion, supports spending tax dollars for abortion and voted against notifying parents of minors seeking out-of-state abortions."

So a minor should consult with her pastor and physician, but should not have to notify her parents, according to Barack.

If Barack really thinks he's a devout Christian, he's deluded...or was indoctrinated.
