Barak on his Islamic past

On December 22nd, in a small-town café in Pleasantville, Omaha, Obama was asked a question that typically only circulates on the Internet.

As he sat down to have a slice of pie with a small group of potential voters and an elderly woman asked him about being Muslim.

"I've always been a Christian," the Illinois Democrat responded. "I have never practiced [Islam]."

In his autobiography, "Dreams From My Father," Obama mentions studying the Quran.  His teacher Tine Hahiyary said that she remembered that he had studied "menjaji" (recitation of the Quran)."  Classmate Rony Amiris described Obama as being a very devout Muslim, saying, "Barry was previously quite religious in Islam."  Another classmate, Emirsyah Satar, now the CEO of Garuda Indonesia, was quoted as saying, "He (Obama) was often in the prayer room wearing a 'sarong'.  (See 1971 and 1972, above.)

Yet, on his official campaign website, Obama has posted this statement, "Barack has never been a Muslim or practiced any other faith besides Christianity."

Obama's grandfather was a Muslim.  Obama's father was a Muslim.  Obama's stepfather was a Muslim.  His African relatives are Muslims.  What was he for the 27 years before his alleged conversion if he wasn't a Muslim?

Saying, "I've always been a Christian," is a bold-faced lie.
