President Obama spoke about religious extremism during an address at Thursday, February 5th morning’s National Prayer Breakfast. Of course, the misborn, worthless boy took advantage of his audience to draw a false equivalency between Christendom and Islam.
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.
Frankly, it’s this jackanapes that needs to get off his high horse and quit acting as if he’s been granted the privilege of insulting the majority of Americans religious beliefs and intelligence.
Let’s break down the boy’s stupidity and perfidy:
History vs. News
There’s a world of difference between what happened hundreds of years ago and what is happening now. It’s worthless as other than pro-Muslim pseudo-apologetics for Obama to equate what was history to what is news and current events.
Let’s start with the fact that the accepted date range for the Crusades is 1095 AD – 1291 AD. During that time what was considered normal behavior in war is, by and large, considered an atrocity today. Hence, describing what happened during those 196 years on sporadic warfare as atrocities is to ignore than cultural mores of the times.
During the approximately 600 years in which the various Inquisitions took place, some 150,000 were put on trial and some 3000 of those were executed. The various Islamist groups exceed that death toll in any given month. No rationale person without a specific agenda can draw an equivalency between these two things.
Slavery and Jim Crow
Here, at least, Obama had just enough sense to allude to am equivalency through the use of softer language rather than to draw the equivalency overtly. That showed some wisdom sense Christianity was never truly used by any but a few to justify either slaver or Jim Crow laws. What was done was citing biblical references as a defense against the claims that slavery was Unchristian and a crime against their God.
Yeah, the only one up on a high horse is Obama. Of course, one has to expect this sort of chicanery from someone like Obama. He’s not a Christian and his theology, such as it is, is based upon Black Liberation Theology and his church of choice for two decades is and was closely allied with the Nation of Islam.
There’s also the sad but simple fact that Obama chose to identify as a Black and adopt large portions of their culture – a culture that largely predicated upon long dead and buried wrongs being at least as relevant as anything happening today.
Sadly, Obama will never get off his high horse by his own volition. Americans are, instead, going to have to drag the boy off it and cast him into the mud and muck where he belongs.
