WHY BARACK OBAMA HAVE TO LIVE A LIE FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE
Barack Obama claims he has never been a Muslim.
Obama Spokesman Robert Gibbs Issued A Statement Explaining that "Senator Obama Has Never Been A Muslim, Was Not Raised As A Muslim, And Is A Committed Christian." The two articles that are posted in this Forum show evidence that Barack Obama and his campaign are lying. Many people in Indonesia who knew him testified that he was a practicing Muslim when he was living in that country for four years.
Why Barack Obama does not or cannot admit he was a Muslim
The truth is that Barack Obama had been a Muslim during his childhood in Indonesia, and he knows it is the truth. He cannot admit that he had denounced Islam and converted to Christianity. Why? If he denounced Islam he will be called an apostate, and his life will be in danger because Muslims will try to kill him.
After all, the Muslim Prophet Muhammad said, "Baddala deenahu, faqtuluhu" -- if anyone changes his religion, kill him (cf. Bukhari vol. 9, bk. 84, no. 57). As far as many Muslims are concerned, this command is not a dead historical relic, but a live mandate. "From Muslim leader to evangelist for Christ," from Compass Direct:
Muslim baptized by Pope says life is in danger
By Philip Pullella - Sun Mar 23, 2008 - 2:35 PM ET
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - A Muslim author and critic of Islamic fundamentalism who was baptized a Catholic by Pope Benedict said on Sunday Islam is "physiologically violent" and he is now in great danger because of his conversion.
"I realize what I am going up against but I will confront my fate with my head high, with my back straight and the interior strength of one who is certain about his faith," said Magdi Allam.
In a surprise move on Saturday night, the pope baptized the 55-year-old, Egyptian-born Allam at an Easter eve service in St Peter's Basilica that was broadcast around the world.
The conversion of Allam to Christianity -- he took the name "Christian" for his baptism -- was kept secret until the Vatican disclosed it in a statement less than an hour before it began.

Barack Obama is not under a Death Sentence
So is Barack Obama under a death sentence? Probably not. He and his campaign has vehemently denied that he has ever been a Muslim. As long as they maintain this lie Obama will avoid being called a Muslim apostate.
Although Obama has been known to have practiced Islam in Indonesia between the ages of 6 and 10, he will not be under the death sentence. This is a crucial point, for according to Islamic law an apostate male is not to be put to death if he has not reached puberty (cf. 'Umdat al-Salik o8.2; Hidayah vol. II p. 246). Some, however, hold that he should be imprisoned until he is of age and then "invited" to accept Islam, but officially the death penalty for youthful apostates is ruled out.
