In the continuing push to equivocate Christians with Jihadists, Obama cites the Crusades and Inquisition as evidence Christianity employs violence in the Name of Christ, states we must ‘push back those who would distort OUR religion for their nihilistic ends’.
History shows and teaches, that whenever the leaders or ruling class of a society demonize and equivocate a specific group as a threat to society – WITHOUT EXCEPTION, such groups soon find themselves criminalized, imprisoned tortured and exterminated.
Why do I mention this? Because there is a meme growing from the halls of power and the Ruling Class in the USA that the problem in the world is not Islamic Jihadists, but Christians – specifically Conservative Biblically-based Christians.
One insidious technique they employ is the comparison of Islamic atrocities taking place right now, with Christianity.
Obama rails against ‘atrocities committed in the name of religion’ while demanding that any and all references to Jihad and Islam in the same sentence be expunged from definition, he not only ignores atrocities committed in the Name of the State, he justifies those atrocities committed in the name of Islam, as not being Islamic.
This is becoming more self-evident every single day:
President Obama met with American Muslim leaders this afternoon, according to the White House schedule, but so far the administration is unwilling to reveal who attended the meeting, which was closed to the press.
This morning, at the “National Prayer Breakfast”, where Muslim leaders perpetrating Jihadist genocide were invited and in attendance, His Heinous made the outrageous and deliberate comparison of ISIS with Christianity:
The president said that while religion is a source for good around the world, people of all faiths have been willing to “hijack religion for their own murderous ends.”
“Unless we get on our high horse and think that this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and 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.”So it is not unique to one group or one religion,” Obama said. “There is a tendency in us, a simple tendency that can pervert and distort our faith.”
“So it is not unique to one group or one religion,” Obama said. “There is a tendency in us, a simple tendency that can pervert and distort our faith.”
Really?? I do not find Christians today advancing their faith by doing things like this:
The outrageous attempt to equate Jihadists with Christianity by citing the Crusades, Jim Crow and the Inquisition is not only intellectually dishonest, it is intended to inflame Jihadists even further as Bizpac Review rightly notes:
…the Crusades, slavery and Jim Crow aren’t currently a problem for the civilized world. So his attempt to draw a moral equivalency — aside from being intellectually dishonest — is likely to do more harm by emboldening Islamic terrorists.
Also, perhaps Obama needs a history lesson. The Crusades took place between 1095 and 1291; the Spanish Inquisition started in 1478.
Not to mention the Crusades were a response to Muslim aggression in the Holy Land.
Perhaps the president hasn’t watched the news, but Islamic terrorism is a problem today.
Of course Obama was not done, it was not enough to suggest that Christians are just like ISIS Jihadists – who kill and commit atrocity in the name of religion for the purpose of forcing their faith at the end of the sword upon the world, Obama then had to preach against ‘exclusivity’:
Obama called for all people of faiths to show humility about their beliefs and reject the idea that “God speaks only to us and doesn’t speak to others.”
So we must show ‘humility’ and change our faith to believe that all religion is equal before God? Did the God of the Bible not say that He is a Jealous God – and that we should have no others before Him? Did Jesus not tell us that there is no path to the Father except through Him?
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. No one can come to the Father except through me. – John 14:6
Obama continues to demonstrate the fact that he is no Christian of any kind, acts as a Jihad sympathizer and traitor from the highest office in the land.
