Obama is someone who identifies with Islam, even though he does not practice the religion. Below is the definition of “cultural Muslim” given by the Wiki. The term means someone, who identifies with Islamic culture, but does not practice the religion. Obama had a father from an ethnically Muslim family, which he embraced in preference to his extended Christian family.
Jeremiah Wright declared that the God they worship at Trinity UCC (Yahweh) is the same as Allah. See this link for more info. Obama is also overly effusive in his public praise of Islam. For these reasons, it is correct to call Obama a “cultural Muslim” or “ethnic Muslim,” though he may not practice the religion. If you just put the word “cultural” in front of “Muslim,” it will be difficult to argue with that description. It just means he identifies culturally with Islam and is loyal to Islam. This is a rather obvious truth, indicated by his own public statements and his biographical book. It is not necessary to prove that Obama is secretly a Muslim. He has been quite open about his personal affection for Islam. He makes decisions, which puts Islamist (Muslim Brotherhood) interests above American interests. (see Egypt, Libya and Syria.)
However, that is not all he is and the perverse doctrine of his sect in Chicago also deserves to be examined. His supposedly “Christian” church in Chicago, does not have a traditional Christian doctrine, because it denies the unique divinity of Christ, as does Islam, which sees Christ as a prophet, not uniquely God.
Trinity church has a doctrine which did not require Obama to give up his personal Muslim identity. Black Liberation theology is not exclusionary as traditional Christianity is. Traditional Christians believe that Christianity is the only way to salvation. This is not the case with Black Liberation Theology and it is obvious that Obama has no love for the traditional Christian church.
Black Liberation Theology is an accretionary doctrine, which embraces features of many religions, but holds that traditional Christianity (and America) are the tools of the Antichrist. The Antichrist is equated to white society. It is similar to and was inspired by the doctrine of Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, which is also not orthodox Islam, but a black cult doctrine that poses as Islam, just as Trinity church poses as Christianity.
From the Wiki on the term “cultural Muslim”
Cultural Muslims are religiously unobservant, secular or irreligious individuals who still identify with the Muslim culture due to family background, personal experiences, or the social and cultural environment in which they grew up.
The term is a political neologism paralleling the term “cultural Christian”.
Malise Ruthven (2000) discussed the terms “cultural Muslim” and “nominal Muslim” as follows:
There is, however, a secondary meaning to Muslim which may shade into the first. A Muslim is one born to a Muslim father who takes on his or her parents’ confessional identity without necessarily subscribing to the beliefs and practices associated with the faith, just as a Jew may describe him- or herself as Jewish without observing the Halacha. In non-Muslim societies, such Muslims may subscribe to, and be vested with, secular identities. The Muslims of Bosnia, descendants of Slavs who converted to Islam under Ottoman rule, are not always noted for attendance at prayer, abstention from alcohol, seclusion of women and other social practices associated with believing Muslims in other parts of the world. They were officially designated as Muslims by nationality to distinguish them from Orthodox Serbs and Catholic Croats under the former Yugoslav communist regime. The label Muslim indicates their ethnicity and group allegiance, but not necessarily their religious beliefs. In this limited context (which may apply to other Muslim minorities in Europe and Asia), there may be no contradiction between being Muslim and being atheist or agnostic, just as there are Jewish atheists and Jewish agnostics… It should be noted, however, that this secular definition of Muslim (sometimes the terms cultural Muslim or nominal Muslim are used) is very far from being uncontested.
