Obama’s Afro-Centric Church: A Non-Negotiable Commitment to Africa


This is follow-up to a must-read article, Obama’s Marxist Liberation Theology Church




I don’t know about you, but I want to elect a president who has a non-negotiable commitment to the United States – not to Africa. I want to elect a president who will remain true to America – not to Africa! I’m very uncomfortable with a candidate who says that he wants to represent all Americans regardless of race but who worships in a church that would make all Anglo’s and most Latino’s very uncomfortable, if not downright frightened for their lives. Anyone who has ever studied Black Liberation Theology understands the truth of what I’ve just written.


Here’s just a little taste of Black Liberation Theology from James H. Cone, one of the leading figures of Black Liberation Theology.


To be a disciple of the black Christ is to become black with him. Looting, burning, or the destruction of white property are not primary concerns. Such matters can only be decided by the oppressed themselves who are seeking to develop their images of the black Christ. . .


While the MSM has given Romney a grilling on his Mormon church affiliation, a church founded on American soil by the way, the MSM has given Obama a pass on his Afro-centered church membership. No one even questions his membership, but perhaps we should?

Let’s just take a little visit to Obama’s church, Trinity United Church of Christ

The first thing you see upon entering the gates is a big map of Africa.

Now click on About US

“We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community."


The Pastor as well as the membership of Trinity United Church of Christ is committed to a 10-point Vision:
1. A congregation committed to ADORATION.
2. A congregation preaching SALVATION.
3. A congregation actively seeking RECONCILIATION.
4. A congregation with a non-negotiable COMMITMENT TO AFRICA.
5. A congregation committed to BIBLICAL EDUCATION.
6. A congregation committed to CULTURAL EDUCATION.
7. A congregation committed to the HISTORICAL EDUCATION OF AFRICAN PEOPLE IN DIASPORA.
8. A congregation committed to LIBERATION.
9. A congregation committed to RESTORATION.
10. A congregation working towards ECONOMIC PARITY.

Now take a visit to the church Akiba Bookstore

By the way, the name Akiba, derived from Swahili, has dual meanings. When used as a noun, Akiba means "something in store" and as a verb is defined as "to save or lay aside."

Unless we wake up and demand some real answers from Barack Hussein Obama about his church affiliation, I’m sure we will discover quite a bit of Obama’s surprising “Akiba”!!! We must ask ourselves if Obama is saving and laying aside most of his true intentions, and then we should seriously ponder what might be in store for us all!

  1. I've questioned his religious ties from the beginning--this is just as questionable as his buried muslim ties and I don't trust this man or his intentions for a second.

    I'm very disturbed by what's emerging and outraged he's being given a pass by the MSM about his 'secrets'.

  2. When you count the word Black in the mission statement and in ANY speech that pastor ever gave, change the word from Black to White... where would you think you were?

    Yep a Klan rally.

  3. Obama's past is bound to catch up with him. His Muslim ties (which he tries so desperately to hide through claiming he never was raised a Muslim) and the very rascist ties with that militant Louis Farrakan honoring pastor at his black theology church is probably just the tip of the iceberg.

    I was watching his wife, Michele, speak at a rally via c-span. She's scary too!

    The signs at Obama rallies say, "Change you can believe in." But we do not hear what kind of changes they are talking about. From the information here and through additional articles I have read, it isn't any kind of change that I would ever trust!

  4. His church here and his Muslim past are scary enough, but his connections to Kenyan leader and Sharia are really serious.

  6. You forgot number 11 on the Church's list. (Not your fault though...it's unspoked).

    11. Most and fore most. All previous 10 points will be financed by whitey and lies to the government for apeasement and guilt checks.

    You people really should look into how much money the government funnels to the so called opressed African comunity. They are like growing into a whole seperate government entity in of itself. I find it amusing.

    Great Post! It will be interesting to see if the media ever lets naive america in on some education.

  8. From the moment I saw this man I felt something in the deep of my spirit that something was very "wolf in sheeps clothing" after reading these words, I am positive that my heart is telling me something to beware of, and the truth is not being told.
    God willing the USA will be protected yet another time from deceitfulness that could undermine and destroy us possibly forever!

  9. Obama's mother is white! Just a simple fact to keep in mind.

  10. Dear Anonymous. Correction. Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, WAS white. She died of cancer in 1995.

    Here’s some of her religious background from today’s Chicago Tribune “Obama's mom: Not just a girl from Kansas”

    "She touted herself as an atheist, and it was something she'd read about and could argue," said Maxine Box, who was Dunham's best friend in high school. "She was always challenging and arguing and comparing. She was already thinking about things that the rest of us hadn't. . .

    The education of Obama the would-be politician didn't begin, of course, until after his birth in 1961, in Honolulu. But the parental traits that would mold him -- a contrarian worldview, an initial rejection of organized religion, a questioning nature -- were already taking shape years earlier in the nomadic and sometimes tempestuous Dunham family, where the only child was a curious and precocious daughter of a father who wanted a boy so badly that he named her Stanley -- after himself. . .

    . . .interviews with their friends from Kansas, now in their mid-to-late 80s, and interviews with their daughter's former classmates and teachers, now in their mid-60s or older, paint a vivid portrait of Barack Obama's mother as a self-assured, iconoclastic young teen seemingly hell-bent to resist Eisenhower-era conformity. . .

    . . ." The candidate who vows to help bridge America's racial, religious and cultural divides has shed his mother's rejection of organized religion, calling his embrace "a vessel for my beliefs. . .

    . . . In a recent interview, Obama called his mother "the dominant figure in my formative years. . . .

    The values she taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics."

    His mother’s background:

    “At Mercer High School, two teachers -- Val Foubert and Jim Wichterman -- generated regular parental thunderstorms by teaching their students to challenge societal norms and question all manner of authority. Foubert, who died recently, taught English. His texts were cutting edge: "Atlas Shrugged," "The Organization Man," "The Hidden Persuaders," "1984" and the acerbic writings of H.L. Mencken.

    Wichterman taught philosophy. The hallway between the two classes was known as "anarchy alley," and students pondered the challenging notions of Wichterman's teachings, including such philosophers as Sartre and Kierkegaard. He also touched the societal third rail of the 1950s: He questioned the existence of God. And he didn't stop there.

    "I had them read 'The Communist Manifesto,' and the parents went nuts," said Wichterman, adding that parents also didn't want any discussions about "anything to do with sex," religion and theology. The parental protests were known as "mothers' marches."

    "The kids started questioning things that their folks thought shouldn't be questioned -- religion, politics, parental authority," said John Hunt, a classmate. "And a lot of parents didn't like that, and they tried to get them [Wichterman and Foubert] fired. . .

    The Dunhams did not join the uproar. Madelyn and Stanley shed their Methodist and Baptist upbringing and began attending Sunday services at the East Shore Unitarian Church in nearby Bellevue. . .

    There’s also very interesting information in this article about Obama’s father and how his paternal grandfather was angry at the thought of his son’s relationship with a white woman.

    “He wrote the Dunhams "this long, nasty letter saying that he didn't approve of the marriage," Obama recounted his mother telling him in "Dreams." "He didn't want the Obama blood sullied by a white woman. "

  12. Hi; I agree with what Anonymous had to say.

    I am strongly opposed to anyone involved in the American government - (no matter what the position they hold) that has pledged their aligence to any other country.

    If they want to be in a position where they have any influence or make any decisions about the USA and how it is operated then they need to publicly and privately pledge their full aligence and support to the USA and to the American people. And not make EVERYTHING about a racial issue.

    I don't care if the future president is purple, green or whatever, the loyalty and sole interest must stand with America. And to be supportive of all of the people. Not one specific race and whatever so called oppression that they still claim to have.

    There are worse things in life than for someone being born black. And people survive and over come those issues on their on. Those people are not still fanning the flames and playing race cards trying to hold current generations responsible for there life.

    Has anyone else noticed that Barack Hussein Obama will not even say the Pledge of Aligence?

    If he does get elected as the President - isn't he required to make an oath stating he pledges his aliegence to the USA and swears to protect our country? How can he have an aligence with two countries at the same time?

    And another thing, someone please tell me why if Obama was not supporting the pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ and their beliefs and ethics, etc. whay he stayed and was a member there for 20 yrs. Why did he wait until the end of May 2008 when there was so much controversy to withdraw his membership?

    I understand that if you attend church regularly that there may be a few small issues that you don't always agree on. But if you do not agree with the primary foundations ethics, mission statements, and the basic beliefs and purpose of a church, you just don't stay there and show continued support the church for half of you life if you don't believe in it to.

    And after all of that time there he had to know that his pastor was in a tight association with other controversial leaders.

    It makes me wonder if this is not the beginning to the antichrist.
