Madonna Explains Why She Called Obama a Black Muslim

Sep 26, 2012  •  Post A Comment

Two days after telling an arena full of Washington, D.C., concert goers that President Obama is a black Muslim, controversial singer Madonna is now saying that she was just being “ironic” when she said those words, reports Reuters.

In a statement from her publicist, Madonna walked back from the comment, saying: “I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim — though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don’t care what religion Obama is — nor should anyone else in America.”

Obama is widely known to be a practicing Christian, the story notes.

Madonna was attempting to give an endorsement to Obama during the concert. She’s quoted as saying: “Now, it’s so amazing and incredible to think that we have an African American in the White House … we have a black Muslim in the White House … it means there is hope in this country, and Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man.”

Here’s a clip of Madonna’s comments about Obama during the concert:

  1. Let’s see…she’s in feud with Elton John and now she’s making enemies with the President. I miss the old days when she just tried to sing song. “Madonna don’t preach….”

  2. Is He quoted or is she?
    …. He’s quoted as saying: “Now, it’s so amazing and incredible to think that we have an African American in the White House … we have a black Muslim in the White House … it means there is hope in this country, and Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man.”

  3. Most practicing Christians attend church regularly. Never to they disavow the sermons, either, in the case of Jeremiah Wright.

  4. Doug, you’re ability to forget even recent history is amazing. Most presidents have not attended church on a regular basis. Let’s hope they are busy.
    Second, had many good Christians not dis avowed what their preachers said, we would still have slavery and women would not be voting.
    It doesn’t matter what faith you are, if the guy or gal in the pulpit is preaching exclusion and hate, he/she is not and never has been a good Christian. Look it up, it’s easy to find but hard for narrow minds to grasp.

  5. Thank you, Tim! As a Christian who hasn’t been to church in yeeeeears, that comment just pretty much underlined why. ‘Judge not lest ye be judged’ seems to be pretty much forgotten by most, as does free will and the use of spiritual self-discernment sense.
