BREITBART– On Thursday, at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., President Obama blithely informed his audience that Christians ought not get on their “high horse” about the problem of radical Islam:

Unless we get on our high horse and think that this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and 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. So it is not unique to one group or one religion. There is a tendency in us, a simple tendency that can pervert and distort our faith.


This is historically and philosophically illiterate. Historically speaking, the Crusades were a response to Islamic aggression in Europe and the Middle East; the Inquisition, as Jonah Goldberg points out while quoting historian Thomas Madden, director of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Saint Louis University, was designed to regularize executions rather than leaving them to the will of the masses. Christians undoubtedly pursued horrible brutalities against people, including innocent Jews. However, as Goldberg points out, “Christianity, even in its most terrible days, even under the most corrupt popes, even during the most unjustifiable wars, was indisputably a force for the improvement of man.”

Nowhere is that clearer than in Obama’s second example, slavery. Virtually all of the most ardent abolitionists were deeply religious Christians. Hundreds of thousands of American men marched to their deaths singing “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”: “In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea / With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me / As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free / While God is marching on.” That was 150 years ago. It’s not exactly the modern Islamic slogan, “Death to the Jews.” Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., was, as his name suggests, a reverend. He quoted old black Christian spirituals and the Biblical story of the exodus from Egypt. Christians obliterated slavery. Christians obliterated Jim Crow. Modern slavery is largely perpetrated by Muslims. Modern Jim Crow is certainly perpetrated by Muslims under shariah law.

There is a larger point, here, too: President Obama’s foolish argument suggests that because Christians were brutal a millennium ago, they should shut up about brutalities today. This is somewhat like saying that because someone’s great-great-grandfather held slaves in rural Alabama, that person should shut up about human trafficking in 2015. It’s asinine.

But Obama has a history of insulting Christianity and Judaism while upholding Islam. In 2006, Obama bashed the Bible and religious Christians and Jews in particular:


Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is ok and that eating shellfish is abomination? How about Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith? Or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount – a passage that is so radical that it’s doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application? So before we get carried away, let’s read our bibles. Folks haven’t been reading their bibles.

He then concluded that religious leaders should not speak out against publicly-funded contraception or gay marriage.

    The is NO way that Christians have killed more than Muslims, Christianity has had some bad history (Most of the Atrocities were done by the Roman Catholic Church, not Christians in general) but NONE of it compares to anything close to ISLAM. Islam has killed Trillions of people in it’s 1,400 year history. Sharia Law is based on the first 5 books of law in the old testament, especially Leviticus and Deuteronomy. Islam also teaches that if your child becomes disobedient to kill them, think they call it “Honor Killings”. Obama may have been raised Islamic but he does not know the Koran end to end. Muslims today follow the Levitical law with owning slaves. Obama DOES NOT KNOW what is talking about when it comes to Scriptures of either book. Not eating pork also came from the book of Leviticus. In today’s Christians belief, the Roman Catholic Church is considered as a Roque Apostate religion, almost a cult and it’s been that way since the great reformation, when true Christianity came out of the Bondage of the Roman Catholic Church, and the Protestantism was born. The current Pope that we have in office is Apostate and irrational for even the Catholic church, he’s going off the deep end. He now supports the rise of Islam and the New World Order. So Mr. President, when it comes to matters of religion you might want to keep it to yourself.

    Why is it that when faced with negative facts, liberals always try to turn the conversation somewhere else? If you talk about Obama’s record (and can actually get past being called a racist), liberals reply with “well Bush did…….”. Now faced with facts about islam, Obama starts talking abiut what christians did 1,000 years ago. Who friggen cares what happened 1,000 years ago? We’re talking about today you idiot! Liberals. Cant discuss with them, cant kill them.

    (James Crosby) 2015

    (Time is running out).

    There is nothing in this country the
    government will not sell or give away! Government wants to play god.

    The main point is this. Our president
    is a socialist muslim with a UN socialistic NWO agenda.

    And a good part of our government
    are muslims with the same agenda. Their intent is to bring the USA down
    dividing the country along racial and religious lines while further destroying
    the economy.

    All that is required is enough
    strife and lawlessness in the country and there will be martial law. (With
    martial law, Government rules dictatorially).

    (Notice to all countries) You have
    been infiltrated and the takeover is imminent.

    (What has happened and what to

    No visas for Christian immigrants in
    muslim countries because they are Christians. (Muslim immigrants accepted).

    (Mass migration) equals mass
    invasion and the demand and implantation

    of sharia law.

    The destruction of Israel as a
    nation making it totally

    muslim under the contrlo of sharia

    The destruction of the Constitution
    and American might, destroying all trust worthiness between the nations. The
    decline of American influence in the world.

    Re-Election of Obama for illegal 3rd.

    H.J. Res. 15 – submitted 1/4/2013 sponsored by D-NY-15
    REP. Jose E.Serrano, introduced to House Judiciary committee states: proposing
    amendment to the constitution of the US to repeal the 22nd article of
    amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual
    may serve as PRESIDENT. Latest action on 1/25.2013 referred to the Subcommittee
    on the Constitution & Civil Justice.

    There is a RFID chip in your future
    Government can and will trackand control you. And a cashless society to insure
    that control is completed electronically. No chip means you cannot buy or sell.

    Persecution of Christians, and the
    Christian military personal that exhibit and practice their faith.

    A one world church controlled by
    government. Ministers will be forced to license and present their sermons for
    government approval.

    Perversion is readily acceptable and
    practiced being forced into the military by government.

    Division of the country along
    religious and racial lines=(Divide and Conquer). Open borders NWO=North
    American Union. Mexico, Canada and the USA.

    Government intimidating the people
    while forcing their will upon the people through unlawful un-Constitutional

    Total disarmament of the people is
    being implemented

    politically,=(No Constitution). The
    destruction of the Second Amendment

    guarantees the destruction of your
    Constitution and rights.

    The surrender of any US. Military
    advantages and technologies to our enemies.

    The complete implementation of EU,UN

    A dictatorial government to regulate
    and control your life based on the EU, UN agenda 21.Sustainable living (You)
    will be moderated and controlled. Those who fail to comply will be re-educated
    or eliminated.


    GOVERNMENT and the

    socialistic UN and NWO.

    War and the failure of our economy
    guarantees (EVERYONE) will be affected. No escape and nowhere to run.

    A radical socialistic UN has bought
    and paid for Republican and democratic government working under agenda 21 guide
    lines. Even now (Rep. and Dems) are importing muslim people from Syria and
    other failed muslim countries (to the USA) by the Hundreds of Thousands.

    Open border immigrants and muslims
    divide the country along religious and racial lines. Anyone who disagrees with
    their agenda will be slandered or threatened, and I disagree.

    Furthermore I am saying enough is
    enough. (Wake up people the future is here).

    It is past time to stand up as
    Americans (UNITED) and

    ORGANIZED putting government in its
    proper CONSTITUTIONAL rightful

    place. NO MORE LAWLESSNESS and No
    political exemptions.

    Freedom is not free and if the
    people fail to protect their God given rights

    Then they will have no more rights
    of freedom or religion.

    If I had my way I would tell the UN
    to go to hell. It is the UN forcing these immigration issues in America through
    our treasonous government.

    Who are your representatives working
    for? (You or the UN)?

    (It is round up time). Every one of
    these Dems and Rep. who are forcing this invasion on the American people need
    to tried for treason according to Constitutional law.


    I do not promote Islam or open
    borders in any country and for sure not in

    my own country. Islam’s only motive
    has been to corrupt the system with

    more (TERROR) like sharia law mixed
    with their barbaric RELIGION and Political principles.

    Wake up people this is nothing less
    than an invasion with the intent of deceiving and destroying the country, the
    (USA) the Christians, Jews and your way of life while promoting the socialistic
    NWO using Islam and open borders in the process of producing a NWO socialistic

    You want to face a knife at your
    throat or watch them rape your wife or daughter, just ignore these warnings and
    do nothing.

    Keep your guns, stock up on ammo and
    learn to pray while growing in faith. This is a spiritual battle as well as a
    physical battle. Islam is demonic.

    If you do not have guns then buy one
    and get plenty of ammo

    with it.

    The first step to bringing down a
    country is to disarm it. Or as many

    of its people as possible. Unarmed
    people are helpless to stand against

    tyranny. Note, Marx, Hitler, Russia,
    Mao, Pol Pot.

    Every country these muslim and
    illegal aliens have come into, are now being forced to accept duel government
    with islam and sharia law dividing the countries they immigrate into.

    Their intent to the host country is
    for the host country to support them.

    They do not assimilate into the
    countries they migrate into but settle separately often taking up to four
    wives. They procreate like rabbits letting the welfare systems take care of
    them. Your tax dollars are being used against you to the distruction of the

    When they become strong enough
    demographically they infiltrate the political system and demand the countries
    adopt their life style and laws. Always the intent has been to divide and

    THIS stinks to high heaven, AND I

    A muslim president and government
    (csars) are not acceptable or compatible in a Constitutional Republic or
    Democratic society. Muslim will not accept Constitutional law, as muslims they
    consider themselves to be above it.

    Your Constitutional law and you
    yourselves are considered inferior and therefore you are to be subjugated as a
    slave or killed.


    I am a Christian and if this
    government thinks I will set quietly by and let them destroy my country and
    eventually destroy my family and myself I say NO!

    (ENOUGH) I am going to say lock and
    load America. (Organize) with those who share your values and prepare physically,
    mentally and spiritually for what is to come.

    I am not an animal and I am not
    going to be slaughtered like an animal or forced to accept Islam and pay as a
    slave to live in my country. Nor am I going to set idly and do nothing while my
    family is set up for this satanic system.

    Americans for Americans under
    Constitutional law. God bless America.

    Jesus Christ is Lord.

  5. Disciple of Jesus says:

    Obama, look that Koran is fiction and deceptive. You’re falling for a GREAT BIG LIE! If the bible isn’t true? Why in the world is the things written in it falling into place as it has been wrote of from 2000-4000 years ago? The bible , a book, wrote by 40 different authors from 40 different geographical areas in the world. At 40 different time periods, over 1500 years, which happen to come to the same conclusion. God is sovereign, He said he was going to send a deliverer, His son, (Isaiah 53) to die for their sins and whoever puts their trust in Him will not perish, He loves man kind and hates evil. I highly suggest you be very carefull what you say and do to the American people. You have no idea what you’re messing with. He is MUCH BIGGER THAN YOU! I also HIGHLY suggest you research what I have wrote to you on here. Jesus can yank your chain any minute!
