President Barack Obama stirred outrage with his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday, comparing the atrocities committed by ISIS to those of Christians “in the name of Christ.”
“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.”
He’s trying to give them all equivalence to what happened in the 11th century to what’s happening today? It’s astonishing,” Buchanan said.
“The whole idea of the Inquisition in Spain – I mean these things are hundreds of years ago. That was a 30-year war long, long ago.
“I can’t think of any atrocities that have really been committed in the name of Christ … There’s no justification anywhere in all the books of the New Testament for any kind of violence on the scale of what we just saw with that Jordanian pilot.”
Buchanan said Obama has a “real problem with the cold hard truth and reality of our times” regarding terrorism.
“There is an element in the Islamic community worldwide, which has awakened and is embarked on a global crusade of its own to conquer western countries,” Buchanan said.
“But first [they want to conquer] Arab and Muslim countries and to impose upon them a Sharia law to expel the Christians, Jews, and the nonbelievers if they’re Shiite and not part of what they consider the mainstream.
“They’re using all manner of violence in order to achieve this, from Boko Haram to ISIS to Ansar al-Sharia and to al-Qaida. Can the president not see the reality of his own time that he’s got to retreat centuries to find what he thinks might be a moral equivalence?”
Buchanan also objected to Obama’s reference to racial segregation laws during the Jim Crow era during the same speech.
“To call it Jim Crow, which was a form of segregation of racists; to say that was rooted in Christianity, it seems to be an absurdity and injustice,” he said.
This is totally outrageous. He’s showing he sides with ISIS then in my opinion saying it’s no big deal. That’s like saying, “What are you complaining about? Christians did atrocities in the name of Christ did Well he said he would side with the muslims and that’s just what he is doing. I firmly believe he is their guy for over here to turn us into a muslim state. He’s throwing Christ and Christians under the bus to prop up Islam. Just the other day he met behind closed doors at the White House with 14 Muslim-Americans, including a leader with a Dearborn-based group, for an hour-long discussion about civil rights, anti-Muslim bias, and extremism. The Muslim-American leaders at the meeting said they were told they should not talk afterward to the news media about what Obama said during the discussion.
Then to switching positions like he always does to play both sides against the middle 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.”
“No god condones terror,” he said.
“We are summoned to push back against those who would distort our religion for their nihilistic ends,” Obama said at the National Prayer Breakfast.
He singled out the ISIS, calling the militants a “death cult,” as well as those responsible for last month’s attacks in Paris and deadly assault on a school in Pakistan. Obama had to intentionally go out of his way to dredge up the Crusades as a slur against Christianity and add his mandatory anti-US racial smudge about slavery and Jim Crow. Let’s face it he hates Christians, Jews and America!!! When is America going to rise up against this fraud in the WH?
