Jesus Isn’t the Problem

The day following his veiled meeting with Muslim leaders at the White House, President Obama is trying to find a moral equivalency between radical Islam and Christianity. During the National Prayer Breakfast this morning, Obama reminded attendees that violence rooted in religion isn’t exclusive to Islam, but Christians as well.

“We’ve seen professions of faith used both as an instrument of great good and but also twisted and misused in the name of evil,” the president said. “We also see faith being twisted and distorted, used as a wedge, or worse, sometimes used as a weapon.”

This is exactly what we’re seeing in the Middle East now.

“No God condones terror. No grievance justifies the taking of innocent lives or the oppression of those who are weaker or fewer in number. And so as people of faith, we are summoned to push back against those who try to distort our religion — any religion for their own nihilistic ends,” he said.

Obama must not know about the Protestant Reformation.

“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.”

Is it any wonder the ‘rumor,’ that Obama is a secret Muslim continues to persist?
