Obama’s Presidential Legacies will be Religious AND Racial Equality. Thanks, Obama! Well, it would be except for this one thing.
It’s called ‘Truth’.
Mr. First Black President is doing as well on the religious front as he is on racial unity.
Obama has brought in thousands of Muslim refugees, but few Christians.
Now we know what you mean by ‘fundamentally changing’ the U.S.
In a world where everyone must be equal and religious tolerance is now mandatory law, Barack Obama has invited 12,486 Muslims into the United States in 2016, while only deeming 68 Christians worthy of admission.
Of the 12,486, the vast majority are Sunni Muslims – 12,363 (98.2 percent) – while another 103 are identified as simply Muslims and a further 20 as Shi’a Muslims.
A concerning number of people coming from Syria (the bulk of refugees admitted into the United States) have been labeled by the United Nations. According to the report, 4,806,702 million Syrians are registered as “persons of concern” in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and North Africa.

This despite the Obama administration asserting that it is a genocide of Christians by the Islamic State:
Although 1 million Christians have fled Syria, but more than 98 percent of those allowed into the United States this fiscal year are Sunni Muslims, the largest Islamic sect in Syria comprising 74 percent of that population…
…Although Christians are 10 percent of the Syrian population, only 100 Syrian Christian refugees have been allowed to enter the United States since the start of the civil war more than five years ago…
…President Obama has argued there should be no religious litmus test for admitting Syrian refugees. He said such a policy would be un-American.
“When individuals say we should have a religious test and that only Christians, proven Christians, should be admitted, that’s offensive and contrary to American values,” the president said…
…Last March, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry announced that atrocities committed by the Islamic State against Yazidis, Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria constituted genocide.
But so far, the genocide declaration has not changed the number of affected minorities allowed into the United States. In addition to receiving only 52 Christians this fiscal year, the government has only admitted 14 Yazidis and 20 Shi’a Muslims into the country (official figures released before the Monday arrivals).

The Left is always lecturing about how we need to be ‘compassionate’ and bring in refugees. But they have to be the right kind of refugees.
It’s ‘un-American’ to ask religious affiliation, but not to ask about sexual orientation.
The White House has said that LGBT Refugees are ‘a priority’ because they are among the ‘most vulnerable’:
The Obama administration will not set a specific number of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Syrian refugees into the United States, but because of reports of escalating violence against LGBT people committed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, the administration will make this group a priority for asylum, reports the Washington Blade.
Responding to a question from the Blade Tuesday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest flatly rejected demands to reserve 500 slots for LGBT people among the anticipated additional 10,000 Syrian refugees President Obama promises to accommodate.
Earnest told the paper the administration would instead prioritize letting in those refugees “deemed to be the most vulnerable.” LGBT people would be among those meeting that definition.
“There are no quotas that are set aside, but the process that we have implemented does prioritize the cases of those who have been subjected to torture, including like the torture that you described, or might have been singled out for their status as a minority, whether that’s a racial minority or an ethnic minority or a religious minority, or even somebody — an LGBT person,” Earnest said.

So, Muslims are a priority because…?
Doe-eyed Progressive Morons: ‘They’re oppressed! Even in the Middle East! Look, Israel still exists! That’s oppression.’
And Christians are not because…?
Doe-eyed Progressive Morons: ‘It’s just a genocide, they need to get over it!’
