becoming Christian was a recommendation from his "handlers" at the time if he wanted to further his political career. It would make sense from that standpoint but I lost track of the article. Ergo...it's speculation and nothing else. Of course, in the heat of the political season, speculation is more prevalent than fact.
and for many it's not hardly mentioning. So, from conflicting statements such as these should we really consider him to be a liar and question other statements he's made?
A, or B?
A- Barack Obama: "...My mother was a Christian from Kansas, and they married and then divorced. I was raised by my mother. So, I've always been a Christian."
B- Barack Obama: "I was not raised in a religious household. For my mother, organized religion too often dressed up closed-mindedness in the garb of piety, cruelty and oppression in the cloak of righteousness."
Barack Obama, defines what being Christian means: " Somebody who believes in Jesus Christ as our lord and savior,"
Barack Obama: " I didn't become a Christian until many years later, when I moved to the South Side of Chicago after college."
