This past week, President Barack Obama was invited to speak at the National Prayer Breakfast.
And once again, Obama chose to use this event as a convenient forum to defend Islam, condemn Christianity, and slander the United States of America, which has obviously become the man’s favorite pastime.
What a guy!
There’s nothing Obama loves more than a good prayer breakfast, because it once again offers him an opportunity to run a sharp stick in the eyes of Christianity.
“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,” Obama said, “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.”
Recently, we have all seen the headlines, reports of how Islam has slaughtered a number of people in France, decapitated journalists, attacked New York city policemen with an ax, and just generally murdered women, children, and Christian ministers for their own entertainment.
And after all these recent incidents took place under his watch, Obama blames Christianity for their actions.
If Obama had any real interest in the truth, or harbored any real concern about occasionally picking up a history book, he would know that the Crusades were in retaliation for the murders and atrocities of Islam, not the cause of them.
However, even if Obama was correct, he deliberately has to reach back into the dusty pages of ancient human history to find any incidents in which Christianity might in any way be compared to the atrocities taking place in Islam today.
Come on now, Obama, the Crusades?
Is that the best you’ve got?
Critics of George W. Bush often accused him of having no books in his library except for coloring books.
But after almost six years of this man’s presidency, I am convinced that Obama is coloring in the same books Bush left behind in the Oval Office. And the worst thing about it is: Unlike Bush, Obama obviously can’t even stay between the lines.
I can no longer think of any good reason why ANY Christian organization or forum would grant the president an opportunity to speak.
This man hates Christianity.
He despises it.
Obama rarely passes up an opportunity to mock the Bible, Christianity, or anyone who embraces them. In addition, the president continually makes the accusation that people of faith are largely the ones responsible for slavery, instead of correctly acknowledging that they are the forces that finally brought this practice to an end.
Let me remind you of Obama’s comments in 2008: “They cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
I challenge you to name me ONE time in this man’s presidency where Obama has ever given a clear and bold defense of Christianity, something that puts a faith he falsely claims to embrace on a par with his never-ending defense of Islam.
Moreover, I am sick and tired of routinely listening to Obama’s foreign and domestic press conferences and speeches, in which he often condemns the United States for slavery, his words somehow placing us in the same category as nations well-known for the rampant slaughter and genocide of their own citizens.
My prayer for next year’s National Prayer Breakfast is that the organizers of this event make sure that Obama’s 2015 appearance is his last one.
The reason is simple: Barack Obama can find no virtue in Christianity; he can find no sins in Islam.
