Obama To Open His 2012 DNC Convention With 2 Hour Prayer To Allah: IS FALSE


This false story from Glenn Beck’s ‘The Blaze’ went viral on a huge number of Christian websites and blogs this morning.

quote,

If after reading this, there is even the slightest trace of doubt in your mind that Obama is a Pro-Muslim who desires to destroy our Constitution and create a Sharia Law American Caliphate, then you, my friend, are an absolute idiot. The Jumah At The DNC is a clarion call, by Muslims, to a spiritual war leading to a physical war against the sovereignty of the United States of America. And your president, Barack HUSSEIN Obama is leading the charge. Obama is so confident now, and so convinced that he can get away with it that he has the audacity to openly and brazenly open his convention with a 2 hour prayer to the moon god Allah, and you, the American taxpayer are footing the bill for the whole thing.

America, you’ve been warned, you’ve been warned…you’ve been warned.

From The Blaze: The Democratic National Committee is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with hosting Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, though it denied a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event.

Obama is telling you that a Pro-Sharia Law push is coming to America. The leaders of this event – Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj are not moderates. They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and have demonstrated support for radical ideologies. (source, nowtheendbegins)

First, about the Cardinal who was supposedly denied a request to pray at the DNC is false,

quote,

NEW YORK — New York Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan will offer closing prayers Sept. 6 at the Democratic National Convention, as he will at the Republican National Convention a week earlier. Dolan, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, accepted an invitation from the Democratic convention organizers to deliver the benediction on the last night of the Sept. 4-6 event after clearing it with Charlotte, N.C., Bishop Peter J. Jugis, said a statement Tuesday from Joe Zwilling, spokesman for the New York Archdiocese. Since the Charlotte convention is in his diocese, protocol would call for Jugis to have the say over whether a bishop from another diocese plays such a role. (source)

And as far as Obama opening the DNC convention with 2 hour prayer to Allah, this too is false,

It is true that the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs is hosting an open air Jumah Congregational Prayer at Marshall Park, Charlotte, North Carolina, on 31 August 2012. However, that is an independent event which will take place four days prior to the opening of the DNC in Charlotte on 4 September 2012 and is not a part of the official National Convention.

As noted on the Charlotte in 2012 web site, which lists the events happening around town during the week of the DNC (including the Jumah Congregational Prayer):

A variety of events leading up to and during the convention are listed below, including official Charlotte in 2012 and Democratic National Convention Committee events listed as “Featured Events” and an exciting array of Convention-related events submitted from the community! This events page is intended to give local residents and convention-goers a comprehensive look at convention week activities and should not be considered an endorsement of any particular event or group by the Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee or the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC).

This took me less then 5 minutes to debunk. Come on brothers and sisters, knowing his history of conspiracy theories, lies and half-truths, why would you accept something from Glenn Beck’s website as factual before taking a few minutes to check it out?

  1. Glenn Beck spewing hateful lies. Who knew?

    • Glenn Beck’s news organization spreading this was no surprise, but i’ll admit the number of Christians who reposted it as factual on their blogs and websites, did surprise me.

    • I have been not only amazed, but saddened as well, to see respected Christian organizations, that should know better, repost these idiocies. These are good and well meaning Christians who are so blinded by their extreme politcal ideology and by their personal hatred of this President, that they will repeat anything that is convenient to their cause, without so much as lifting a finger to check on whether or not it is actually true. On the other hand, they are quick to express outrage when anyone suggests that their cultist candidate may have commited wrongdoing in any way. I can tell you all one thing. And that is simply that their is going to be a lot of unhappiness among those people after election day, because no matter which candidate wins, THEY are NOT going to get what they want. They may be defeated. They may be betrayed. But their is not a chance that they will prevail. Not a chance. When people line up behind a satanic cause like this one, there are never any winners and there is always a big price to pay.

  2. What is still baffling is how many Christians have been willing to believe Glen Beck?

  3. So they will be there praying and you debunked the fact that that is a fact wow you the man.

    • paul, im afraid you failed to read the post…no ‘they’ will not be at the convention praying. Neither is

      Obama To Open His 2012 DNC Convention With 2 Hour Prayer To Allah

      wow you the man.

      Wrong again. I’m a 64 yr old grandmother.🙂

  4. PJ – Hatred has an energy of its own. And when you are filled with hatred you will post anything negative about Obama even if is not factual. Millions of people, including professing believers, will vote for Romney because they hate President Obama. Profoundly sad.

    • It is sad.

      This bizarre hatred was something i first saw 4 years ago, before the election, on Christian discussion forums and interactive blogs. I didn’t understand then and still don’t. It actually seems to have grown stronger. Perhaps stronger isn’t the correct term…more open about it, may be more correct. In other words its not even disguised now. If a fellow believer dares to interject a thought that what other Christians are saying is not Christ-like or is unreasonably harsh, they are attacked as ‘Obamaites’ or evil liberals.

      Here’s the link to one thread (of many) i’ve followed at Rapture Ready, one of the most well known Christian Prophecy boards/forums.

      The hatred for President Obama on these boards

      Look through it if time allows. Its pitiful.

      There was a time, not that long ago, when those who ran that forum would have never allowed threads like this one. I know because i’ve read there for over 8 years and have seen people warned and even kicked off the board for less. Now those who run the forum and their moderators are leading the ugly personal attacks themselves.

      Wonder what the lost, when looking for answers today, think about Christianity when they see those who claim to be Christians so full of hate?

  5. Doesn’t the Bible say something about “bearing false witness”? I seem to think that God took kind of an anti-false witness stance.

    I mean, not like something that would be carved in stone and handed to Moses if only ten laws were to be so important, but … wait, … never mind.

    • That is what’s so sad…they just don’t care if its true or not. Checking back at the Christian blogs and websites who first ran with this story, it was disappointing (but not surprising) to see the false story is still up.
