“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Obama's 57 U.S. States: Mistaken or Mispoken?

Rush Limbaugh has a piece on his web site that points out the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, an international organization with permanent delegations to the U.N., has 57 Muslim member states. Could this possible be where Obama got his "America has 57 states" from? It is far too random of a number to come from nowhere. Indonesia, where Obama spent time in his youth, is a member of this organization.

This opens up the question that Barack Obama may not be forthright in regard to his beliefs, or at least his tendencies. You couple this with his other misstatement of "my Muslim faith," on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, and more questions could follow.

Please, let me be absolutely clear on this. There is nothing wrong with a person of the Muslim faith, or any other faith for that matter, running for the Presidency or any other political office in America. Their religion should be a non-determining factor. The problem occurs if someone is not being forthright about their beliefs since their beliefs are at the center of their core as a person. And if religious beliefs can be fudged by a person for political expediency, than anything can.

Does anyone seriously believe that Obama has any genuine faith in anyone or anything?

Are any claims made by him, or anyone else, reagarding his 'religion' relevant in the least?

Seriously.
