Barack Obama takes his shoes off at a visit to a mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. (White House)

In a shocking interview yesterday on the Sean Hannity Radio Show, author Ed Klein said Barack Obama’s former pastor helped Obama accept Christianity without having to renounce Islam.
The Daily Caller reported:

Klein also said Wright told him he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having renounce his “Islamic background,” which Klein said he has on tape.

Here is Ed Klein on Hannity talking about his interview with Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Klein spoke more on this in a separate interview with NewsMax:

Klein says Obama originally sought out Wright to discuss community activism.

“Quickly the conversations turned from picking up garbage on the street and getting streetlights put up on street corners to political matters and religious matters,” Klein says. “And the Rev. Wright turned into really a substitute father figure, who guided Obama in the two major areas of his life.”

The first area was Obama’s identity — just who was he?

“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.

Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian.

“He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.

The second area was Obama’s political philosophy. Wright introduced Obama to Black Liberation theology.

    so, 9/11 was what, a mirage??

    aah, i’m going to skip the too numerous to list Islamist history, but will
    say that not believing they conspire to bring US down from within and
    dominate the world via infiltration wins more than half their battles for
    them..

    do yourself a favor, LISTEN TO ANTI-ISLAMIST MUSLIMS, who not only
    make sense, but have solutions, and none of them include reaching out
    to Islamists or promoting Sharia law like Obama always has & still does..

    albeit not the same TARGETS so to speak..

    same goes for abortion, contraception, and sterilization..

    again, in line with Nazi (by any other name) ideology..

    lets make a comparison just for the heck of it..

    we see what and where the Marxist (by any other name) Obama at al
    powers that be are leading US.. will we muster the strength to put an
    end to the enormous web they’ve built in order to keep US in line and
    hold on to our REPUBLIC, or will the UN ISLAMIC NWO win out??

    same goes for Muslims, their Islamist leaders weild all the powers
    against them to keep them in line, only they are not half as kind..

    Soros and his leftist Honchos Plan their Plot for 2012 elections.

    Attendees roamed the grounds at the 150-acre tropical resort on their way to cocktail gatherings, salsa dance lessons, and workshops such as “Occupy the Voting Booth” and “The 1 Percent Rule.” Local police guarded entrances as members attended a “partners only” meeting in the hotel’s Country Club Courtyard.

    George Soros showed up to party, as did Andy Stern, former SEIU president. Ari Rabin-Havt, executive vice president of Media Matters for America, walked around talking about his latest chat with Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for President Obama. Members of the Center for American Progress also showed up.

    This was a 1% gathering – a planning operation for the other 99%. And we will see its impact in the months to come.

    nice posts cp.. :-)

    problem is, when it comes to Islamism, this war isn’t really about who’s God
    is the true God, what they believe per se.. this is a political war that uses
    religious facade to conquer, and terrorist attacks to keep the fire lit, and
    the masses in line, the battles however, are political, as they cannot win
    on the literal battlefeild.. what Islamists do is use our own laws against US
    to conquer US from within, the our God v their God even if He is the same
    God in everyone’s minds-eye is in the end, just a means to try and cover
    up the real deal.. WORLD DOMINATION BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.. and
    whoever thinks there’s room for a hug, a kiss, and a kumbaya song in that
    scenario is nuts, and let me tell you, Obama may be brilliant, but he’s as
    freakin’ crazy as his heroes (all tyrannical), as well as his mentor’s (all
    radical)..

    whe it comes to POLITICS, religion is a false dichotomy,
    a wedge tool, a handy excuse for pitting hatred against
    one another via color, creed, or credentials in the name
    of God/Allah/Buddah/etc..

    see, therein lies the problem with religion mixing with politics..

    just as what some Muslims believe turn them into radicals, what some
    Christians believe turns them into targets, both are dangerous beliefs..

    Jesus was no socialist

    [.] The Word of God does allow and encourage self-defense. In the Scriptures we do not find God encouraging His people to be either “hawks” or “doves” when dealing with self-defense. They are just to be reasonable.

    In the early part of redemptive history we see the patriarch Abraham mustering one of the first armed militias (without the approval of any state or federal government, I would note) to rescue his kidnapped nephew, Lot (Gen. 14:21ff). This was not revenge but was purely defending and protecting (here rescuing) a family member and retrieving property. This can be labeled as a biblical example of self-defense. It is interesting to note that later “[t]he Israelite army was a militia army which came to battle with each man bearing his own weapons – from the time of Moses, through the Judges, and beyond.” (Pratt; ibid.)]

    nor was Jesus a pacifist

    [We are commanded to hate what is evil and cling to what is good (Romans 12:9). In doing so we must take a stand against what is evil in this world and pursue righteousness (2 Timothy 2:22). Jesus did this and, in so doing, spoke openly against the religious and political rulers of His time because they were not seeking a righteousness from God, but rather of their own making (Luke 20:1-2, Romans 9:31-33). Zeal for God’s righteousness consumed Jesus, and He was not afraid to stand up against those who opposed and dishonored His Father (John 2:15-17, see also Numbers 25:11). “Those who hate Him He will repay to their face by destruction; He will not be slow to repay to their face those who hate Him” (Deuteronomy 7:10). “While people are saying, ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).]

    bit more here, and in connecting links, ie: Is It Right to Fight?

    [One other point, if everyone was a pacifist except the evil and
    lawbreakers of the world, then the world would be run by evil
    dictators or our society would be anarchy.

    Pacifism in its fullest sense is untenable
    in the sinful world in which we live.]

  7. so the real ? still is is he sunni or shiea?

    his calafate will not work.
    remember the bow in April 2009 in England?

    what is said in the bible he will deceive many, will rule for 42 months.
    in the end the people who follow him will burn in hell.

    the man on man dancing thing is to bring G-Ds protection from the USA but the people do have a say in this. Because of the Constitution Remember We the People.

    many will hunger because the muslums can not farm the land sad but even in the mussi book mo-ham-od said he did not know if he followed evil or good.

    all who believe in the dead sea scrolls know the truth and follow good.

    I know this sounds crazy but
    bg knows the answer

    well do the muslums believe that the Europeans will sit back and let the mussis rule over them?
    We Americans sure as the hell will not.
    We can do without oil can the mussis do without food?

  8. Obama is an American citezen free to choose whatever religion he wishes. This should not be an issue. We should be using our time, energy and taxdollars toward some of our bigger problems in America. We should not. Be debating Obama’s religion, his citezenship( his mother was an America last I read) and we should not be debating the rights of gay marriage. There are bigger issues here and abroad that our intelligent people should be working on. Maybe if we all would stop trying to force our self righteous beliefs on others we can move on.

  9. Considering the source of this story is Hannity, I figure it’s nothing but a lie.

  10. bg

    Yes, “Civilisation Jihad” is a very subtle war and it is like how a virus get inside the body and hide and strengthen itself in various parts of the body system while de sensitizing the immune system from within. The problem is they are very strongly motivated and they have the benefit of early start. This is because apart from hoping to prevent the destruction of Israel, America had no motives to be at war with them. Yet by nature of their religion, they have have clear motives to declare war on America even before there is an Israel because the freedom of Religion and other things that American values is an obstruction and has to be rid off. Even before there was an Iraq war, they already had the motive to bring down the Twin towers and replace it with a mosque. So it is a one sided war. They hate you and consider you an enemy infidel while you are thinking of how to become friends.

    While all these are happening, the other group of people, the hard line leftists are not making things easier. They are also very highly motivated because of their Marxism religion. They believe that in order to dialectically progress towards their Socialistic ideals, there must be class struggles, race struggles, Religious struggles or whatever type of struggles they can directly or indirectly help to create. They believe that using Marxist ideas, they can run things better and bring about a better society free from the possibilities of corruptions. They believe that a better economical environment will make a better person. They don’t realize that while it is true that as beings made up of spirit and material, what happens externally can help to change our insides but the changes that takes place in this way will never last. I can dress myself up well and it will make me feel confident and powerful inside but the feelings will not last if I don’t make real changes in my character and become a better person. Many communist leaders are rich materially but their external circumstances did not help them to evolve into a less selfish or less cruel person.

    What is complicated is that although Muslims and Marxist are natural enemies, there is nothing that says that they cannot work together to achieve the common goal of bringing down a common enemy.

  11. Some seriously warped people posting on this website.

    You need to quit watching the fox entertainment channel and think for yourselves.

  12. Valerie,

    By insisting that we should ignore issues that we consider important you are being self righteous since you believe that the issues you choose to focus on are more intelligent. And who told you that we are not also focusing on the so called other important issues? Why can’t we be concern about a person who lies about his religion and then act in consistent to the things that he was lying about?

    Before someone wants to be my leader I have the right to know something about his beliefs, his stance on the things I value. And i have the right of not being lied to. As for the person who wants to be a leader, he has the right to choose his religion and his lifestyle. As a friend and not as my leader, i respect his freedom and rights.

    i don’t think Valerie is not “insisting” on anything,
    just pointing out a few facts of the real matter..

    and albeit i totally understand yours and everyone else’s personal opinions,
    nothing ‘about” Obama matters in the end, as everything Obama et al has
    done, are doing, and will continue to do is what really matters.. and none
    of it involves his color, creed, or credential wedge tools that he uses to
    “divide” people.. the reality is, he and his IslaMarxist cronies are hell bent
    on collapsing the system in order to create a Kingdom here on Earth
    where man is god, and God is either dead, or Muhammeded.. also believe
    that many “religious” people are finally, thank God, starting to wake up..

    RELIGION is not the body politic, however, as this post to some extent
    unfortunately proves, it works just as well for the Islamist agenda as it
    does for FOR Obama’s.. :-(

    God will save our spiritual souls, only we can save our physical selves..

    we’re in a battle against evil, yes pray, but do not be blinded by the light..

  16. ok bg,

    as it is then. I will pray for America and hope that more and more people will continue to wake up. More and more will stand up for whatever important issues that are relevant to stop people like Obama from creating an atmosphere that threatens the basic values, principles that made America great. whether it concerns the way he handles the economy or the ways he handles foreign policies or the ways he handles the promotion of racial unity, religious sensitivities, health care, government accountabilities on border issues etc.

    as for me, if he is a friend and not a leader, i respect his freedom to believe what he wants and practice whatever lifestyle he wants. i will not shove my beliefs on him if he doesn’t want me to do so and i will not want him to shove his beliefs on me either unless i request. but if he wants to be a leader over me and my children, (my nation) then it is another story. I have the right to request truthful information about his background and loyalties. so, now it is good because more information are coming out clearly.
