Obama: “Terrible deeds committed in name of Christ”

Speaking of the evils perpetrated by sadistic murderers, Barack Obama noted, “This is not unique to one religion. There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency, that can pervert and distort our faith.” Obama calls it “intolerance.”

Excerpted from Obama’s speech, punctuated with jokes, given earlier today at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., are these words as he discussed “faith being twisted and distorted” never mentioning the radical Islamic terrorism elephant in the room but managing to equate Jim Crow with the horrific slaughter of schoolchildren, savage beheadings and the unspeakably evil incinerating a young Jordanian pilot alive just days ago. Obama referred to his “own faith journey,” without explaining where it began and where it took him.

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.  In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.  Michelle and I returned from India — an incredible, beautiful country, full of magnificent diversity — but a place where, in past years, religious faiths of all types have, on occasion, been targeted by other peoples of faith, simply due to their heritage and their beliefs — acts of intolerance that would have shocked Gandhiji, the person who helped to liberate that nation.

    Those of you who couldn’t bring yourself to vote for Mitt Romney because of his LDS faith got a THIS instead. Aren’t you proud “Overtaxed 1”?  Even if you didn’t cast a presidential vote, you helped Obama.

    • Overtaxed1 says:

      I am very proud that I did not vote for Romney. I wrote in the name of an honest Republican.

      • Overtaxed1 says:

        It has been said before, there is no lesser of two evils.

      • Night Owl says:

        I was disgusted by your blantant bigotry when you claimed “Mormons and Muslims both worship other Gods.” I’m not a Mormon, but some of the most conservative state legislators have been. You claim to be a conservative. Would you have voted against Russell Pearce if he was in your district? Your foolish write-in vote DID help elect Obama. How proud you must be.

        If Matt Salmon challenged John McCain, would you act in this same manner to reelelct the worst senator this state has ever had?

  2. Anthem Al says:

    Comparing ISIS terrorists to Christians is right up Obama’s alley. Imagine Presidents Roosevelt or Truman comparing Americans of faith to the Nazis during WWII.

  3. lowadobian says:

    Most telling was the (anti-Christ’s) use of the words “our religiion” when referring to Islam. His anti-Christian anti-Catholic mongering was beyond the pale and reached new lows. We’re to blame for Jim Crow & slavery? Fits his Fergusonian narrative nicely, doesn’t it……
    Sure makes you wish wikipedia would stop citing this monsters religion as “Christian”………

  4. Vinoaz says:

    If he only had the same animus for ISIS and other “organizations” like he has for Republicans, Conservatives, Christians, whites, and America. No president has done more to harm the U.S., race relations, our allies and the world in general. He is not dumb or incompetent. He is something that no one wants to admit.

    • Vince says:

      I have no trouble saying what I believe: Barack Obama is a Marxist and a Muslim who uses the cover of Christianity and the Democrat Party to advance himself and his radical Alinsky agenda. What a shame that he was aided and abetted in his deceit by undereducated American voters — products of the far left teacher‘s unions.

  5. Annie O. says:

    Spoken like a true enemy of America and Christianity. No excuse for such stupidity…..not socialism, not any faith, period. Pray people that BHO fouls out by this same stupidity somehow, some day soon. He is the poster boy for why Christ asked us to pray for our enemies!

  6. SmallGovt says:

    We need to understand the separation of church and state in our Constitution and make sure it works both ways.

    The real problem in this comes back to immigration. The Republicans let in far too many people from Afghanistan and Iraq. Never should have happened.

  7. LEO IN TSN says:

    Our muslim-in-chief hijacked the National Day of Prayer and erected his victory mosque at the Prayer Breakfast years ago. His “journey of faith” is that he was born muslim and raised muslim, and still wears his muslim prayer ring that he now calls his wedding ring. As he predicted, he is one with the muslims as the winds of controversy blow across the globe.

    Interesting that all Christ-haters like to throw the “Crusades” card as a terrible example of Christian nastiness. But golly, I seem to recall that the Crusades were actually a defense of Europe from invading hordes of muslims. The muslims (the ISIS of their day), who had already conquered the lands of Christ, were flooding northward through Europe, beheading priests and men and raping and disemboweling women and little children (as they are still doing today), and putting up their victory mosques where Christian cathedrals had stood for ten centuries. The Catholic knights and other Christian defenders rose up to throw the muslim barbarians (now called terrorists) back across the sea and save innocent Europeans and the free world.

    Interesting that a recent poll shows over 85% of Americans still identify as Christians, and yet obamao is allowed to stand on the world stage to re-write history and subjugate US to Moohamed. And he’s being very successful in using his shadow government & army of federal black-robed judges-for-life in doing it. Do you want your kids & grandkids to be Arabic-speaking slaves?

    God bless America.

    Obama has now been invited to a mosque, perhaps as a reward for his performance:

    “At least one group, however, enthusiastically approved of Obama’s comments during this week’s National Prayer Breakfast. The Council on American Islamic Relations released a statement by its national executive director heralding the speech as a clarification of terrorist motivation.
    “We thank President Obama for clearly separating the brutal actions of ISIS from the faith of Islam,” Nihad Awad wrote, “and for reminding us all that violence and injustice are not part of any faith.”
    Awad went on to extend an invitation to Obama to visit a mosque as a “significant gesture” during what he described as a “time of growing Islamophobia.” . . . .

    This was sent to me this morning, I find it suitable for today’s
    Seeing Red Comments, so here it is.

    This was checked out on truth or fiction and it came out truth! ~

    From the Iron Mountain, MI, Daily News:Stop This Insanity May 30, 2014

    EDITOR:

    I went to the Veteran’s Hospital in Iron Mountain today on business. While there I stopped at the Chapel and found pinky-purple type curtains with mesh at the top, covering the altar. (You know the type. They use them between sick patient beds in the hospital).

    I stopped in my tracks, shocked at what I saw. I peeked behind the curtain, and found what used to be the welcoming part of the chapel, the Cross, a picture of Christ, and other Christian icons familiar to the majority of Americans.

    I found Chaplain Bob Mueller, to ask what the meaning was of this change. This is what he told me.

    “A couple of months ago, an order came down from Washington DC to cover all things associated with Christianity in the Vet Hospitals. Their solution is to cover everything in all the VA Chapels across the country.”

    Chaplain Bob went on to say, “A few weeks ago an official from the Madison , WI . Vet Administration came down here to tell me to “stop talking about Jesus, and to stop reading scripture out loud.”

    Chaplain Bob also said that the rest of the Obama plan is to send more curtains to cover the rest of the stained glass windows, because there are Christian symbols on the stained glass.

    I was skeptical of the accuracy of this article, so I checked it out through Truth or Fiction…See below.

    If this isn’t a wake up call to all Americans, I don’t know what is.

    SEND THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW, ESPECIALLY OUR VETERANS.

    For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that anyone that believed in him may not die but have eternal life.
