To Obama all religions are equal, equally bad

Obama just couldn’t resist.

At the National Prayer Breakfast he threw Christianity under the bus and backed up over it twice by comparing things done in the name of Christianity to what Islamic fascists are doing in the name of Muhammad, calling both “those who seek to hijack religious for their own murderous ends.”

“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history,” he said. “And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”

The Inquisition, sure, but the Crusades were a defensive battle against an Islamic invasion that could have swept across Europe.

But in an show of our sensitivity to the current Islamic invaders, our military has largely removed the term crusade from its lexicon.

In September 2001, President George W. Bush said, “This crusade — this war on terrorism — is going to take a while …” He later apologized for the remark because of how Muslims view the word crusade. Christians will get no such apology from this president.

Obama next went on to twist the role of Christians further. “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ,” he claimed of a tiny minority, without bothering to mention the prominent role of Christians in ending both of those.

“And so, as people of faith, we are summoned to push back against those who try to distort our religion — any religion — for their own nihilistic ends,” Obama said. “And here at home and around the world, we will constantly reaffirm that fundamental freedom — freedom of religion — the right to practice our faith how we choose …”

Uh, Barack, ISIS and al-Qaida are practicing their faith how they choose. They are trying to establish a caliphate.

    BTW, Mr. Mitchell, it may be comforting to think that only a “tiny minority” rested on their reading of Christian principles their enslavement, terrorism, exclusion and impoverishment of scores of millions of African-Americans.

    But it simply is not true. Religion was central to the system of racial oppression that has itself played such a central role in American history.

    Extremism in religion is so easy to dismiss when it’s YOUR religion, just make excuses, draw on heavenly edicts, and then kill or oppress those who think differently from you, Islamists are doing it now just as many religions have done so in the past. To dismiss christian (I refuse to capitalize that word in referring to those who obviously don’t believe in Christ’s teachings) violence and hatred is to condone blind adherence to a certain theology. That’s wrong no matter what alleged deity is followed. By the way, those Christians certainly were successful in ending slavery. It only took 600,000 dead Americans to end overt slavery. Civil rights and voting access would not come until 100 years later.

  4. The President was trying to impress the Dalai Lama who was seated up front at the President’s table next to Valerie Jarrett. His message only cemented his buffoonery on this most pressing issue, the rise of the brutal, cowardly Islamic Jihadists. The so called Arab Spring is now a raging wildfire…with the Obama Administration’s dithering, mixed and impotent responses. The President is tap dancing because the bloodshed can be laid directly at his feet…for not leaving an adequate “transition force” in Iraq.

    Pinocchio is finally free to be himself! What brick must hit our populace on the head for them to see the truth about this weasel? He was raised in a Madrassa by his step-dad, the Muslim.

    Just another form of “Bush did it, too!”
