Obama’s Churches

Barack Obama chose to hold a memorial service December 23 for his late grandmother Madelyn “Toot” Dunham at Honolulu’s First Unitarian Church, which harkens back to his leftist religious upbringing.

Andrew Walden of The American Thinker wrote a great piece reminding us of Obama’s journey from the lefty, mushy Unitarian agnosticism of his youth, to the  anti-white, and anti-American church of his Chicago community organizer days, to his current choice of the pro-life, and anti-gay marriage Pastor Rick Warren of Orange County’s Saddleback megachurch to lead the invocation at his inauguration.

What is First Unitarian Church?  Their website describes counter-recruitment efforts intended for “deconstructing the myth” … “used in propaganda for the military (as with ads for Marine recruitment).”Another set of clues come from the Honolulu Star-Bulletin February 8, 2003 description of First Unitarian’s 2003 golden anniversary celebration — complete with “Liberal Religion for 50 Years” T-shirts.  The Star-Bulletin explains:”The bumper stickers on cars outside the church gave an insight into its members’ beliefs: ‘No War.’ ‘If you want peace, work for justice.’ ‘An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.’
Activism for peace and human rights causes has characterized the congregation of the First Unitarian Church of Honolulu since it was organized 50 years ago. Members were instrumental in founding the League of Women Voters and activating a local branch of the American Civil Liberties Union. It offered sanctuary to servicemen who went AWOL to avoid being sent to Vietnam. It helped launch the Save Our Constitution effort to fight the constitutional amendment on same-sex marriages. And just recently, the church sponsored a Death with Dignity poll that collected a 72 percent response in favor of end-of-life legislation….

In Seattle, Obama’s grandparents attended “The little red church on the hill”

The Chicago Tribune mentions a description of the Dunham’s chosen church as “The Little Red Church on the Hill”.  According to its own website, East Shore Unitarian Church got that name because of, “Well-publicized debates and forums on such controversial subjects as the admission of ‘Red China’ to the United Nations….”  Mercer Island’s John Stenhouse, according to his 2000 obituary, once served as church president possibly contributing to the ‘red’ label.
The Dunhams moved to Honolulu in 1960 after Ann graduated and quickly became friends with leftists such as now-Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-HI) and Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis.  Obama’s mother-to-be enrolled at the University of Hawaii and soon met Barack Obama Sr. in a Russian language class.  She would remain affiliated with the University for most of her life.

The December 24, 2008 Honolulu Star-Bulletin describes the memorial for Madelyn Dunham:

“Obama did not speak to reporters at the small home that had been converted into the First Unitarian Church in Nuuanu. Aides said Obama’s half sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, and her husband, Konrad Ng, also were present….”

Konrad Ng, a Chinese-Canadian, is an associate professor at UH.  Soetoro-Ng, who also lectures at UH, was born in Indonesia in 1970, and teaches at the exclusive La Pietra–Hawaii School for Girls, across the street and four decades out of synch from the same Kapiolani Park in which Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis described cruising for male and female sex partners in his 1968 book, “Sex Rebel: Black (memoirs of a gash gourmet)”.

I sure hope Pastor Warren talks some sense into that man.

  2. Great post! Thanks for sharing this information.

    Almost a year ago I wrote a blog post questioning Is Obama Really a Christian?

    I know that the complete answer exists between Obama and God. However, Jesus did tell us, “by their fruits you shall know them.” Obama’s got nothing but bad fruit when his worldview is compared to God’s Word. This is the reason why I can now answer that question about Obama’s Christian “faith” with 99% certainty; and that answer is a resounding NO!

    Your post adds even more fuel to the fire.

    As far as Obama “uniting” with Rick Warren goes, it is so obvious to me that the man will use absolutely anyone to rake people in…all the while putting forth this continued fake, media-of-mass-deception created and protected persona. Obama is the modern time version of “the emperor with no clothes.”


  3. I completely agree, Christine.

    Rev. Wright and TUCC, are no longer useful to him, so under the bus, they go, while more acceptable Rick Warren comes in.

    I hope Warren realizes he’s being used.


  4. Obama is a user and an opportunist, and not much credibility with any Christian who pays even the slightest attention to comparing his words and actions with what is clear in Scripture.

    Pastor Rick Warren has my respect, but I doubt he’s in a position to bring Obama to his knees for the spiritual renewal necessary for repentance. We can hope (the real kind).


  5. The likelihood that Rick Warren can talk BO into anything is extremely remote. BO has his own agenda and he is sticking to it. Using Rick Warren is simply a part of the program that fits for the present moment. Warren’s turn to pass under the tires of the bus will come quite soon, I expect. But first BO will get a little bit of mileage out of him, use him for his own (BO’s) purposes, and then … under he goes.
