Obama to Christians: Get Off Your High Horse

President Obama today said he and other Christians should not “get on our high horse” with respect to the ISIS rampages in the name of religion, suggesting that Christians had done similar things in the name of their religion during the crusades and with slavery in the United States.

Obama listed the many outrages throughout the world being carried out unjustly in the name of Islam. But then he added:

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. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ . . .

So this is not unique to one group or one religion. There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency that can pervert and distort our faith.

Obama went on to describe how religious sects in India were attacking each other in ways “that would have shocked” Gandhi.

  1. All this from the Nobel Peace Prize winner who drones American citizens without due process. His words have less meaning than a Brian Williams war story.

  2. Speaking of “Christians” has anyone reminded ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ about the 20 years he spent going to Rev. Wright’s “g#d damn America” church…???

    The NERVE and ARROGANCE of Obama to mention hundered+ year old so-called “Christian” atrocities…?!

    1. During the ten seconds that I heard him before logging off he used the word “humility.” Yes, Obama had the nerve to use that word!

      1. No in fact he makes a point to criticize and demean Christians at every turn. ‘Get off your high horse’? Cannot think of a more apt example of ‘the pot calling the kettle black’.

    2. Agree about Reverend Wright.

      I believe Obama comments are a direct attack on Christians. Only a demagogic would use such an illogical comparison. It’s similar to your child arguing … “but all my friends do it!”

      We have both a President and a Prophet. And he learned his theology from St. Reverend Wright.

      Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., took me on another journey,” Obama once said.

      “We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” he told his congregation. Rev. Wright 2001

      Obama is more indirect …. “Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place”

      Nothing new here … same old, same old … don’t get upset by massacres, burnings, attacks on America … it’s been done in the past.

      And we have no moral authority to object to it.

      “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in President’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

      1. JG… obviously, you don’t realize that you are speaking of “The Anointed One”.

        Regardless of their enmity towards each other, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”… in other words, ‘Let’s kill infidels now, you and I can kill each other later.’ So far, how many times have we seen ANY Muslims ANYWHERE defending Jews or Christians from other Muslims???

    1. And THAT is a very important question. It’s as though he was born and reared in some far away galaxy, and just couldn’t grasp the simplest concepts of living on Planet Earth. He’s more like the characters on Third Rock From The Sun than an earth born human. Extremely strange man.

    2. His speeches are nothing but “word salads.” You’re not supposed to attempt to figure out what that means – I mean, seriously, what does it mean that “Christians” shouldn’t get on their “high horse”? Is he in middle school?

      He’s a very low thinker.

      1. he does all his speeches geared to a 9th & 10th grade level. those are the “folks” that he talks to. he can’t talk to more mature people as they know he’s lying plus we tune him out after about 10 seconds.

  3. I cannot believe he made such a comment. Why don’t people walk out on him? I would! This is 2015, people are getting their heads chopped off and burned alive, and he wants to tell us about being on a high horse! He is suppose to be telling us how he is going to help save our lives, and our Country! Did anyone hear the comment about the Death Cult? I tried to make comment of that on the last thread, computer jammed again.

  4. Yep, yep, he’s right about that: in the Middle Ages and before, people of all kinds used barbaric, dastardly, and horrible means to their end -be it religious or political.
    However, most people of the world are now educated, and understand that being different from others is not a crime, nor is it a reason to kill them.
    The Muslim murderers are not part of the new world, they are not educated, nor are they tolerant of others who might think or pray differently.
    The Muslim murederes could be likened to aliens from another world, or zombies of the ancient times brought back to life.

    There is no place on earth, no modern country that adheres to such out-moded, barbaric practices like those who live in Africa and the Middle East.
    MrObama is a disgrace to his office, is a supporter of Muslim practices and evils.
    IMO, of course.

    1. “The Muslim murederes could be likened to aliens from another world, or zombies of the ancient times brought back to life”.

      Was “freeze drying” done back then?

  5. I have never killed anyone in my past. Because someone else has done it, it’s OK for me to kill them?

    Africans have sold their people in slavery, does this give whites a pass on feeling bad?

    1. If they ever open the vaults where he’s hidden all his relevant personal information, we will find all the biographical details he has been hiding since he entered public life. He and his handlers are terrified we will discover that information for fear the entire Obama House of Cards will collapse. Included in that information will be his connections to the worst elements of society, his connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, to the Saudi family, and the the phony personal biography he and Bill Ayers constructed out of thin air.

    2. But who cares what he is? He is insane and gets a thrill out of making Americans angry, sadistic and masochistic is his game. Over and over,he says these evil things, doesn’t anyone get it? He loves to make people mad,over and over, every day — he’s sick and psycho from all the pot. Pot slows the brain he should be impeached — what would it take to impeach him??? No one cares about us anymore, Republicans don’t care, democrats are communists, hate America. Disgusting state of affairs.

  6. Help me out here; Bengazi is too far in the past to worry about, but the Crusades aren’t? Wow.

    This whole argument about “well, Christians did this, so…” is just a straw man big enough for the Burning Man festival.

    Here’s the HUGE difference between Christianity and Islam; a Muslim who kills for his faith is acting in accordance with it; a Christian who does so is acting contrary to it.

    That’s it. You can do whatever as a Christian, but you’re not following Christ’s teachings if you go around killing people. There is no point in the red letters in the Bible you will find that Christ justifies killing. Can you say that about the Qu’ran?

    There IS one instance where one of his diciples did violence to attempt to protect Christ from arrest. Did this make Jesus happy? Let’s see;
    “…51 And behold, one of those who were with Jesus reached and drew out his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his ear.
    52 Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.”
    Matthew 26:51.

    Doesn’t look like it did. I wonder, though, how this scene would have played out if they had come for Mighty Mo? My guess would be that Zulfiqar, the cleaver of vertibrae, would have shone forth and hit more than an ear…

    Anyway, it’s always nice that liberals use the “well he started it” argument. That’s served mankind so well, from the schoolyard to the Mid-East. We would all be better served, however, if adults would stop using it, starting with the President.

    Let me just add this thought, from a leading candidate for the next Presidency;
    “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
    -Hillary Rodham Clinton

    Interesting, isn’t it, how we can blame everyone from Bush to Godfrey of Boullion for the world’s current shortcomings, but somehow, the last six years just don’t count…

  7. “President Obama today said he and other Christians should not “get on our high horse”…
    Once again, he refers to himself as a “Christian”. This the farthest thing from the truth.

    So, what he is basically saying is: “Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone”. The Christians committed atrocities centuries ago…so we modern-day Christians better shut our damnn traps and stop pointing fingers at the precious Muslims.

    We need a leader – not a Muslim apologist. The world is literally on fire and he is spouting gobbledygook.

    1. I’ve often wondered if he in fact needs meds…….or maybe he does in fact have them but is ‘non compliant’. Funny how we’ve never heard peep about his ‘medical evals’ like every other past POTUS we’ve ever had. LOL…..used to get updates on George W just about quarterly, and even with Clinton before him. All we ever hear is how often he is on the golf course and which state he’s campaigning in for whatever cause. What a piece of work.

  8. The First Crusade took place in 1097-99 almost 100 years after Islamic warriors captured Jerusalem. The Christians freed Jerusalem in 1099 and held it for nearly 100 years. They drove muslims out of other cities, also. Jerusalem saved by Christians?? Yes! And that must annoy bho and his muslim brothers, so bho ‘lectures’ Christians?? Unbelievable!

    The Democrat invasion of the South after the Civil War, instituted the Jim Crow laws which essentially kept ‘slavery’ alive through much of the 20th Century! Dems fought against the rights of minorities and women to vote! The have fought against Civil Rights Laws and still continue to undermind any solutions to protect the most vulnerable in society ~ the unborn, the poor, the elderly!

    Insist that your children become informed and learn the TRUE American and World History before it is systematically re-written by the Gov’t! Use your Constitutionally Guaranteed Freedoms now before the socialist-progressives, activist judges, and bho further their goal of destroying ‘Gov’t of, by, and for the People’!

    (I am on a ‘rant’!) Over & Out!

  9. F You, Obama, you Muslim sympathizing golf playing excuse making present voting miserable little excuse for a man. You are an embarrassment to the office, as well as to the US of A. Your pompous little a** needs to be impeached immediately, for conduct detrimental to the citizens of this great nation and for dereliction of duties under your Oath of office.

    You are not and never have been an American, or a Christian. You are an outrage to right thinking people everywhere.

    Trying to justify what ISIS has done and will do in the future is obscene.

    F You, little man, go crawl back under whatever slimy rock in Chicago you came from.

    1. Love your post William of Ca. I totally agree with you and have some other names for this scumbag. If he can’t be impeached why can’t we get him for treason? This bottom scum hates us and this Republic.

    2. William of Ca — Love your post. That is exactly how I feel. He is so low-class and gets a thrill out of lecturing hate every day like a true muslim. He is a pitiful skinny, ugly, evil person.

  10. Leave it to President Obama to try and rationalize Islamic terrorists by blaming the victims. To pharaphrase GG, Obama would blame a rape victim if it was a Islamic terrorist.

  11. This a always blaming someone else for what is happening and never get to the issue at hand. God forbid that real Christians act like this today. It was not just Christians back in the Roman empire days but nomads and evil men against others that did not agree with them. Mohammedan did it also. I sure hope Christians didn’t act like ISIS with slaves in US. There might have been evil men acting this way just like “knockouts” and riots going on today in US killing innocent people. This is no excuse to allow it to keep going on today. Evil and not showing love when we excuse it because of an excuse about something past. Just like blaming Bush and everyone else when something happens. Time to step up to the plate and accept our responsibility and not blame others for our lame response!

  12. I don’t want to see another story or blog by anyone attempting to cover up for this failure of a President. He is a disgrace to this country and every American in it.

    1. Sometimes we have to taste the bitter before we appreciate the sweet.
      Obama has taught this Country a lesson.
      Whether we learned it is still TBD.

  13. Obama’s don’t blame Islam for the terrorism now being committed, blame Christians for what happened many centuries ago. H Y P O C R I T E phony baloney conman

  14. We have evolved. We have learned and we do not tolerate this any longer. Our President continues to favor the Terrorist Islamists and denigrate the Christians. He is a disgrace to the United States.

  15. Obama sounds like terrorists when he brings up the Crusades. How can you justify what they are doing today as payback for what happened a thousand years ago. It only shows that at the very least he is sympathetic to them if not outright in favor of their actions. Amazing that the MSM does not call him out on this but then why should they, they have done anything to question him for 8 years! I only hope that we can survive another 2 years until this Obaminationis out of office.

  16. “Obama went on to describe how religious sects in India were attacking each other in ways “that would have shocked” Gandhi”. Really, well not bad. India invited Obama as state guest for its Republic day and the whole media went crazy. And this is how Obama returns the favour. India which is hindu majority is also home to second largest muslim population in the world along with christians, Jains, Sikhs, buddhists, Jews and many others. It is the only religiously diverse country in the region. There is no nation that can match India in terms of its religious tolerance in spite of the fact that the country witnessed the greatest genocide of hindus in human history under Islamic rule. With the rise of global Jihad, it is true that hindus and other religions have started feeling uncomfortable with the muslim denial to integrate. Yet, this is all Obama could find to quote from his India visit. His vested interests stand exposed. Shameful. I can even hear the echo of his middle name across the atlantic up to here.

  17. obama is an evil evil man! he belongs to the devil! we have got to throw him out of the White House. he is a sorry excuse for a man.
    I’m ashamed to even think about him occupying the White House. Lord help us JESUS! Come quickly Lord JESUS! America needs JESUS and we need Him NOW! Today!
    I guess obama could say I’m on my High Horse!
    Hallelujah! I’m a CHRISTIAN and I’m PROUD to say JESUS CHRIST is my LORD and SAVIOR! Praise be to Almighty God!

  18. Christians and other civilized people around the world should be flattered that Obama needs to go back hundreds of years in time to compare them to the barbaric practices of today’s Muslims.

    Then he went on to compare the wide spread slavery that still exists in the Middle East and Africa today to America’s slavery over a 100 years ago. I’m not sure he actual meant the Arab Slave trade which lasted much longer and was much larger than the Atlantic slave trade or perhaps he meant the Barbary Slave trade where Muslim Africans enslaved millions of Europeans.

    I suspect president Obama is also defending that nearly all Muslim-majority societies have varying degrees of sharia integrated into their law codes, but almost all use sharia to govern family affairs.. It’s these values of oppressing women, legalized pedophilia, honor killings of women and daughters, male guardianship of women, modesty dress codes, lack of marital rights, forced marriage, stoning deaths of gays and women committing adultery, etc. Only the Muslim religion has legalized these shameful practices using sharia law and only the far-left in the western world support and defend them.

  19. I don’t suppose he mentioned that the Christian Crusades were in response to Islam completely and utterly wiping out any other religions, and then reducing the populations to dhimmitude. I don’t suppose he mentioned that Islam had already overtaken far more lands than any other religion had done to Islam. Yeah, I don’t suppose he knows his history.

    1. Yeah, and the Marines are called ‘Leathernecks’ because Jefferson sent them to defeat the Barbary Pirates who were Muslim, and were prone to cutting peoples heads off.

      Leatherneck comes from the leather collar added to their uniform to at least provide some protection.

      1. *Additionally, the Navy song ‘From the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli’ is about the determination of Americans to defeat the ruthless and feared Islamic Muslim Barbary pirates who in the late 1700’s, after the American Revolutionary War, attacked, killed, and imprisoned crews and passengers of unarmed American ships.

        *Tripoli’s muslim ambassador demanded ‘ransoms’ from Pres Jefferson who learned that Islam demanded that all nations were to meet muslims demands or be killed. The muslim pirates had demanded ransoms and payments from the British, French, the Dutch to not attack their ships, steal their cargoes, and enslave their citizens for more than 200 years!

        *In 1625, a Pilgrim Ship from Plymouth near the English Channel was taken over by Barary Pirates who sailed it to Morocco! *

        *By 1640, hundreds of British ships and over 3,000 subjects were enslaved in Algiers and over 1500 in Tunis. In three centuries more than 1 million Europeans and untold millions from other parts of the World were enslaved by Muslim Barbary Pirates!

        *Read about the ‘First Barbery War’ (America’s First War) and the courage of Jefferson and so many others who fought to stop the ‘First’, and who were deceived by phony muslim treaties (1793, 1795, 1815, 1816) they broke and began again their piracy, slaughter of crews, and slave-taking until the 1830’s.

        *With Algiers captured by the French in 1830, the muslim barbary piracy and plundering began to cease for many decades.

        Today: Islamic terrorists are holding the World hostage, are in every aspect of European and American culture, and making progress toward World Domination!

        Nobody has a clue about how to UNDO the damage ~ not even in America!

        *Facts are exerpts from Wm Federer’s book: ‘What Every American Needs to Know About the Qur’an’. Otherwise, my opinion is just another exercise in futility! jb

  20. When Christians commit murders in the name of God, they are hypocrites. When Muslims do the same, they can point to the Koran and say, we are doing the prophet’s will.

  21. So Christians should not say anything because of something that happened hundreds of years ago? Criticizing barbarism (or if that is too strong a word, let’s just call it violence) with criticism is NOT “getting on one’s high horse”. Gag me.

  22. There are things we CAN KNOW in life, in fact our great American Experiment is based on things we KNEW. Americans do not have freedom in a raw sense but LIBERTY, in that LIBERTY, according to John Locke was the complementary subset of freedom called License, and suicide was LICENSE and not LIBERTY according to his Second Treatise of Government. Having Biblically demolished the Divine Right of Kings, John Locke Biblically reintroduced the necessity of government based on Biblical principles. By the way, the scientific method as well as Article 3, Section 3 of the constitution, was based on the Mosaic law of two or three witnesses that establishes a matter found in two corollaries, the first being that in the mouth of one witness shall no man be put to death. To show how this law even is established, it is found in the mouth of Jesus who said in John “If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.” As a third amen, Peter in this corrected translation of 2 Peter 1:20 says, “This first knowing that every prophecy of scripture is NOT OF ITS OWN INTERPRETATION.” John Locke said that we were put on this earth to LIVE and not to quit our station early and if we cannot have this right over our innocent lives then that is a right we cannot delegate to another, and thus a right to innocent life, and Jefferson, taking up this concept nearly whole cloth in his draft of the Declaration of Independence, referred to such a right as the inalienable right to life, which a redactor on the committee changed to UNALIENABLE, and Liberty itself came under such a designation. So Liberty is the freedom to do that which is right in the sight of God. Though this concept is alien to every other government in the world except for ours, a non-Christian citizen has the LIBERTY to emulate from the tenets of his worldview such a Biblical Virtue. We include GOD in this definition because Locke said GOD put us on this earth to LIVE, and the Bible in pre-emptive amen has twice in the proverbs “there is a WAY that SEEMETH RIGHT unto a man but the ends thereof are the ways of DEATH. I will proffer this definition of LICENSE as the complementary freedom of raw freedom that is deleterious to innocent LIFE and at best indifferent to the protection of innocent LIFE.

    The generic and thus fundamentalist CHRISTIAN has a direct admonition in Paul’s writings that denies us the ability to advance our Christianity by the force of weapons, though extremely potent persuasion is allowed:

    2 Corinthians 10:3-6(KJV)
    3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
    4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
    5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
    6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

    John Locke no doubt received some of his concepts from the state persecuted Baptist preacher under the reign of King James, by the name of Leonard Busher, who pled in about 1615 not only for Liberty of Conscience or some say Religions Freedom, but the first published plea for the freedom of the press which he specifically suggested to apply to even the PAPISTS, the type of folk Obama claims may have murdered fellow Christians. But though John Locke never trusted atheists or Catholics concerning free societies, it did appear that when the Baptists of Rhode Island became a haven for persecuted Catholics in the colonies, their taste of Liberty of conscience in America has led to the general reformation of the Catholics as well as some Protestant groups to not persecute another faith to death. We await such a reformation of the Muslim worldview called ISLAM.

    Where America has failed in the concept of slavery, consider the true meaning of tithes to be a demonstration of being a slave to God and not to men. God’s Biblically stated threshold as to what constitutes slavery is found in 1 Samuel as follows:

    1 Samuel 8:15-17(KJV)
    15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
    16 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
    17 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

    A great price in blood has been paid by Americans concerning our slavery experience concerning our black brothers, which means that we cannot be considered slaves any longer, but why does this current administration among even those that include Republicans consider that Americans CANNOT BE SLAVES ANY LONGER HAVING BEEN MADE FREE, according to a Biblical KNOWLEDGE that is found in the following passages:

    1 Corinthians 7:20-24(KJV)
    20Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.
    21Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.
    22For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant.
    23Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.
    24Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.

    Obama, you can refer to JIM CROW LAWS? This is why we detest the Democrat Party and see to its destruction because the Democrat Party OWNED the Jim Crow Laws, and lynched blacks not just because they were black but REPUBLICANS.

  23. This man is beyond ignorant and stupid. The Crusades were, as usual, an attempt by the Catholic church against ISLAM (imagine that) rampaging through Europe doing exactly what they are today. Killing, looting, raping, pillaging everything in their path. Islam is responsible for the death of the Byzantine Empire among others.
    No other religious sect has killed as many humans from the time they came out of what was then the ‘known world’ in the 8th century. They are sub-human and the Jerk of the Modern World, Obama, does nothing but defend them send them billions of dollars and bring (at last count ~ 7 million) to the United States. Wonder if he’s brought any Christian refugees resulting from the mid-east wars, to the US. He’s been lying for over 6 years and the US has been buying all of it – including those in Congress – how stupid can Americans be?

    1. Americans aren’t stupid, but we have been rendered impotent by the defenses that Obama has constructed around him.
      Even congress is intimidated.

      We will see some weak attempts to restrict him in the next two years but I would be surprised at any major impact on his agenda.

    2. Try History 101 please. Your interesting twist is about as accurate as Obummers memories of slavery.
      The Muslims invaded Europe which started the Crusade. Their barbarism opened the door for some ashamed times for the eye for an eye crowd in retribution…BUT… Catholics did not ‘start the Crusades”….. but they enjoyed the hell out f finishing it and what the F!!! does ANY of that have to do with this fools analogy of ISIS = Christians.
      Get a freaking grip. This clown is a psychopathic idiot and people are still justifying his inane open demonstrable public stupidity and demonstrated hatred for his own Americans and Country.
      Jail this traitor.
      We still have GITMO just for such slime

  24. All that being said, Mr. President, people are being murdered RIGHT NOW in the name of Islam. What is your plan to deal with present-day reality?

    1. Cripes don’t ask him to deal with reality. We have a hard enough time dealing with this psycopath’s delusional egoism.
      Well posted tho.

  25. What else would you expect from a progressive. They rewrite history to suit the narrative they want to tell. While the inquisition was a dark and unjustifiable chapter of the church’s history, if not for the crusades, Islam would have conquered Europe 1,000 years ago. Power tends to corrupt. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. During the dark ages between the Church’s absolute power and compromises made in doctrine made to win over pagan converts the church had become thoroughly corrupt and had strayed from the path Jesus had set for it. The difference is Islam is on the path set for it by Muhammad. Jesus taught his followers to love their enemies and pray for those who persecuted them. Muhammad taught his followers to kill their enemies, rape their wives and enslave their children.

  26. Mr Obama, you know very little about what a Christian is! The crusades were done by the Catholic church, not by Christians! They used the name of God the same way the Muslims use the name Allah, who is a false sun god. The Catholic church used the name ‘Christ’ the redeemer)to try to force people to believe like they did, when in reality the high ups in the church worship Satan. The same as anyone who believes in false gods that are not the Creator, YHWH.
    So, comparing Satanic actions to other groups that practice the same, is not a good argument.

  27. No comparison, Mr. President. Christianity has been in repentance for it’s crimes against humanity, for several hundred years, with no sign of back-sliding! The same goes for America about African slavery, who were sold to it by other Africans – perhaps even YOUR ancestors! ISIS beheads, crusifies, & now last month has burned a man alive, & shoved this proudly in the face of the world two days ago! Get off your golf cart, & stop dodging your sworn duty to protect your citizens, & lead the free world, against a growing evil, or resign & let someone better do it!

  28. Why is it everyone is at the throat of our President? Remember, right here in good ole America, how the whites kept the blacks in slavery, according to their interpretations of scripture…We had to have a war to eliminate slavery, which it didn’t, slavery is still alive in good ole America…..There will always be tensions between the races, so stop bashing the President, when he is telling the truth..Yes, yes the truth hurts ….

    1. 71% of ‘Slavers”… those who conscripted African blacks, sold them and transported them were black. So stop that lame ass dead horse please. Second… we had a war over socio-distinct North-South economic models…. not over your purported moral issue of slavery.
      Islam has been a religion of intolerance and hatred for many many centuries. Recall it was the Muslims who invaded Europe that started the Crusades (Stupidly)…. defending your cause at al costs is somehow the lesser of evils vs forcing your beliefs on someone…like ISIS and Obama are doing.

    1. The president is just stating facts about the history in this country. This is what did happen. A reminder that being fanatical about any belief can be deadly. Its funny because I have been looking at all the people in history that have died in the name of God.

      1. Fine…but he doesn’t state facts about what is happening today with radical Islam. Only Obama would mention the Crusades while refusing to acknowledge the present.

  29. The historical and theological ignorance of this man is impressive to say the least. If, as he has repeatedly said, these animals are not a legitimate representation of Islam as a whole but rather are extremists, then how could he impugn Christianity as as a whole? His ability to demonstrate his lack of intelligence is stunning.

  30. congrats Keith! judging by some of the comments from newbies, it looks like your column got picked up on some lefty site(s) somewhere.

    sorry, newbs, but it’s really hard for me to “respect Our President” when he spouts such abject nonsense.

    for one thing, if you have to go back to the Crusades to find something bad the Christians did, you’ve already lost the argument. it’s a little like playing the McVeigh card. I would have expected better from the Smartest President Ever(TM).

    presidential spokeskid Josh Earnest tried to make us believe that ISIS et al. are just some random people who committed acts of terror and only “later” (re the Charlie Hebdo murderers) latched onto Islam, because it was a convenient excuse. that’s utter BS. ISIS and al Qaeda and Hamas and the rest of them are *motivated* by Islam. that’s the difference between them and non-Muslim terrorists like Timothy McVeigh or that Norwegian guy, whose religion is tangential.

    Obama can’t even say the words “radical Islam” about events that happened yesterday. but he can lecture Christians about violence from 800 years ago? ridiculous.

  31. Life is tough when you belong to a fraudulent religion like Islam. As the High Horse stands, that you will never ride, the rider of said horse is there to prevent Islam from ever being taken seriously by those who oppose you Barry. Your just another joker that history will forget. What’s you Name again….?
