Ok, so what DOES Obama believe?

Maybe I need a flowchart or something.

First, Obama says he is NOT a Muslim, even though he was raised a Muslim and attended an Islamic school. And let’s not forget that Muslims who leave Islam face a death sentence. Sooo… either he was never a Muslim to start with, or he’s really crafty in that he’s negotiated some kind of protection from the Religion of Peace during his campaign in exchange for unnamed favors later. Hmmmm….

Next, Obama says he IS a Christian. But just the other day, when James Dobson dared to question something he said TWO YEARS AGO, Obama pooh-poohed it off as “…he was just making stuff up…” Which is really not a rebuttal or even an answer. Then, of course, the wagons circled and the fingers wagged because no one can question him on his positions or issues or even crack a political joke without it becoming a “racial” issue. Sooo…. either he was never a Christian to start with, or he’s really crafty in that he’s using these black churches to generate publicity and notoriety and name recognition for all the wrong reasons. And I really don’t want to be around when they figure out they’ve been hood-winked. Hmmmmm…….

Then yesterday, out of the blue, is the news that an Indian group presented him with a gold-plated IDOL. Not some cute little figurine for the living room table; an IDOL.

NEW DELHI: With Democrat senator Barack Obama busy in the run-up to the US presidential polls, a group of well-wishers in the capital have decided to send him a symbol of his lucky charm, Lord Hanuman, to help him emerge victorious.

Obama’s representative Carolyn Sauvage-Mar on Tuesday received a gold-plated two-feet-high idol which she will pass it on to the Obama after it is sanctified.

The idol is being presented to Obama as he is reported to be a Lord Hanuman devotee and carries with him a locket of the monkey god along with other good luck charms.

An hour-long prayer meeting to sanctify the idol was earlier organised at Sankat Mochan Dham and by Congress leader Brijmohan Bhama, Balmiki Samaj and the temple’s priests.

“Obama has deep faith in Lord Hanuman and that is why we are presenting an idol of Hanuman to him,” said Bhama.

Accepting the souvenir, Sauvage-Mar, who is chairperson of Democrats Abroad-India, said, “Obama has extended his thanks for the support.”

However, questions on Obama’s religious beliefs elicited just a smile from Sauvage-Mar, apparently to avoid controversy back home…

OOOOOOOOKAY. I know government officials get all sorts of gifts from all sorts of places (remember the enameled box in No Way Out?). And I know guys like to keep trinkets like special coins, guitar picks, blarney stones, maybe a rabbit’s foot, sticks, shark’s teeth, old raisins, etc….just all sorts of stuff to help them get through their day. But a Monkey God? GatewayPundit has more and it looks like Buuuuurrrrning Hot is on the EXACT same page as I am, as far as wondering just exactly WHO Obama worships, besides himself, of course. I’m really trying to keep an open mind here, really, and he’s not helping. Soooo… either he really never believed in Lord Hanuman in the first place, or he’s really crafty in that he’s collecting all these valuable gifts from around the world like Xerxes or Alexander or whatever ancient warrior king he thinks he’s channeling this week to be used to fund some top-secret and yet unnamed project later. Hmmmmmmmm……

(And I AM NOT GOING to even think what some of his campaign staff might say about him being given a monkey idol. Being concerned with the faith angle, it did not even occur to me that someone might consider this a “racial” statement, until I read it elsewhere. Folks, please, take a deep breath and grow just a smidge of thicker skin, will ya?)

Oh wait … here it comes… MonkeyGodGate! You heard it here first, folks! /sarcasm

Just once, Obama, JUST ONCE, will you give a straight answer and stick with it for more than 48 hours? Are you Christian? Muslim? Hindu? Agnostic? Atheist? Obamist? Anything at all?

UPDATED: See, even Ed Morrissey, the Grand Poobah of the Blogosphere is wonderin’ the same thing.

What does it say about the candidate when even his closest advisers have no consistent idea what he represents? Barack Obama has now committed so many reversals, obfuscations, and rhetorical parsings that he now stands for nothing — only himself. Even his surrogates can’t get his story straight; how are voters supposed to decide what he believes?

    It’s “oooooooookay” not “okkkkkky” – unless you have a stutter.

    Never mind.

    Obama is everything. He is “change” so he can by any and all things to all people.

    “Ok, so what DOES Obama believe?”

    That’s easy. Obama believes he has a divine right to be President.

    …or he’s really crafty in that he’s collecting all these valuable gifts from around the world like Xerxes or Alexander or whatever ancient warrior king he thinks he’s channeling this week…

    That’s a poignant insight! As the future Antibama-Christ, he may be modeling his divine emperorship on previous rulers of the world, i.e. by being the agent of ALL gods from ALL religions:

    I am Cyrus, king of the world, great king, legitimate king, king of Babylon, king of Sumer and Akkad, king of the four rims of the earth, son of Cambyses, great king, king of Anshan.

    I strove for peace in Babylon and in all his other sacred cities. As to the inhabitants of Babylon… I abolished forced labour…

    From Nineveh, Assur and Susa, Akkad, Eshnunna, Zamban, Me-Turnu and Der until the region of Gutium, I returned to these sacred cities on the other side of the Tigris, the sanctuaries of which have been ruins for a long time, the images which used to live therein and established for them permanent sanctuaries. I also gathered all their former inhabitants and returned to them their habitations.

    Cyrus the Great, conquerer of Babylon

    Only differrence is, Obama would rather Babylon (Iraq) go down in flames while he rushes the troops home, and strongly supports forced labor (aka socialism/communism/welfare taking away your money).

    Btw, like the ‘reviews’ you have on the top part of the left column.

    So far I usually get reviews along the lines of ‘another neo-con’ or ‘leading local neocon’. Lol!

    Obama is on the road to representing himself as the leader of all religions…see Revelation 13 in the Christian Bible

    What is wrong with a monkey god. Who ever said that Christians or Islam ruled the world. The same way everyone believes your religions exist and have value, you should be open minded like Obama and believe in others. Don’t you so passionately love your pets? You love them and talk to them as if they are real? Should we tell you, that you are stupid to be talking to something that is not human, that cannot speak back to you?

    So yes, he is “change” so stop being narrow minded and full of hate and try to see what he represents. Why should he be narrow minded like some of the christian sects. Maybe he is choosing to following in whatever leads him down a path of open mindedness, reality and truthfulness – the higher power. And wherever it takes him, all the best to him bescause already he is better than all your closed-minded comments put together.

    So you sit there and write all you want and complain. He will be believing in what he does and making an effort to make change.

    Glad you hit all your talking points there, Lela. Next time try thinking for yourself.
