With the world aghast at Islamic State jihadists burning a man alive, Obama said Christians have done evil things as well, all in the name of Jesus Christ:
“Unless 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,” Obama said. “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”
The point behind his words is to not condemn Islam or ISIS, because Christians have done bad things in the past as well. I don't see any other motivation for Obama's words except to come to the defense of Islam.
Obama took this opportunity to praise the self-admitted Marxist Dalai Lama as a "good friend."
In attendance, a Sudanese official of a government accused of genocide. Imagine his prayers!
No word yet on what all the Christians in attendance thought of Obama's slight to Christianity at this moment in history dominated by the inhuman practices of ISIS.
Obama apparently did not make note that Saudi Arabia's punishments for "crimes" are almost identical to those of ISIS.
Is Christianity a problem today in any way similar to Islam? Is Islam no different than Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, or Judaism in Obama's mind? Islam is waging wars around the entire world and killing innocent people in countless nations. No word on whether Obama offered any prayers for those affected.
Why does Obama go to such extreme lengths, and with such dubious logic, to mitigate crimes against humanity perpetrated against the world by Islam? What motives someone handed the job of President of the United States to do that? And why is Obama hyper-sensitive to criticism of Islam?
