Default Insulted

This will probably be taken as political which it really shouldnt but any Christian that heard the speech by obama yesterday should be insulted and outraged by his comments about the roll of the Catholic church during the crusades. He doesnt care about the what the United States stands for and does not understand anything about history or even have a clue what a president should say in public. If you dont know what I'm talking about it is all over the news and the inter net.

He appears to be like some of the posters on here. He refers to actions taken 800 years ago and tries to lay it alongside modern day.

You have to give him credit, he does not mention radical Islamist because it would be a conflict of interest....... to refer to himself.

I cant or wont go that far.

He DID, without a doubt, defend the actions of this terrorists.

The WH says it is consistent with the Presidents reminding the world of their sins.

Who is this President to be the confessor for the world ?

He does open mouth and insert foot a lot !!!!

This is spot on. Krauthammer: 'Stunned' At Obama's 'Banal,' 'Offensive' Words | The Daily Caller

KRAUTHAMMER: I was stunned that the president could say something so, I mean, at once, banal and offensive. Here we are from an act shocking barbarism, the burning alive of a prisoner of war, and Obamas message is that we should remember the Crusades and the Inquisition. I mean, for him to say that all of us have sinned, all religions have transgressed it was adolescent stuff.

Everyone knows that. Whats important is whats happening now. Christianity no longer goes on Crusades. It gave up the Inquisition a while ago. the Book of Joshua is knee deep in blood. That story is over too. The story of today, of our generation, is the fact that the overwhelming volume of the violence and the barbarism that we are seeing in the world from Nigeria to Paris all the way to Pakistan and even to the Philippines, the island of Mindanao in the Philippines is coming from one source, and thats from inside islam. It is not the prevalent idea of Islam. But it is coming from Islam.


As many Islamic leaders including the President of Egypt and many others have admitted. And there needs to be a change in Islam. It is not a coincidence that all of these attacks on other religions are happening. All over the world, in a dozen countries, two dozen countries, all in the name of one religion. Its not a coincidence. And for the president to be lecturing us and to say we shouldnt get on our high horse and to not remember our own path is ridiculous. The present issue is Muslim radicalism and how to attack it.

A lot of people are dying. From Obamas first speech at West Point in December 2009, ironically announcing the surge in Afghanistan, you could tell that his heart has never been in this fight. Never. Hes the Commander-In-Chief and yet he announces one sentence after he talks about the surge, he talks about the day to withdraw. Everyone in the region knows that.

Everyone in the Middle East knows that he took on the fight on ISIS only because of the public reaction to the video of the beheading of the two Americans. He never would have lifted a finger otherwise. He hasnt helped the rebels in Syria. He has not given the weapons that Jordan needs. The Kurds who are actually able, courageous and well and committed to the fight against ISIS still cannot get direct arms from the United States. The world knows this. Our enemies know it, an our friends know it.

Interesting piece on this subject.......

"In his ignorant and bigoted remarks to religious leaders this week, President Obama parroted jihadi propaganda. Bored (when not annoyed) by facts, the president referred to the Crusades and the Inquisition as evidence of the horrors religion can wreak. That kind of talk emboldens the Islamist line that Christian bad behavior justifies the Middle Easts bad behavior even today.

The president knows as little about history as he does about warfare, and even less about religion. But hes not alone. With the Lefts successful destruction of history instruction in our schools and universities, even well-educated creatures of Washington accept the Arab fantasy that the cultural incompetence, practical indolence, and spiritual decay of the entire Middle East stems from Richard Coeur de Lions twelfth-century swordplay."

Another slant on this topic...of ISIL but in reference to the words used by the left wing...

"This week came news that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant burned alive a Jordanian pilot in a metal cage. Thursday morning's National Prayer Breakfast speech represented the first sign that President Obama is prepared to acknowledge a connection between Islam and the violence -- beheadings, mass murders, rape, human slavery, state sponsorship of terrorism, and military conquest -- jihadists are perpetrating in Muhammads name.

To be sure, President Bush's "global war on terror" shielded the exact identity of America's adversary. But the Obama administration has taken euphemism to new heights. By avoiding reference to Islamic extremism or radical Islam, Obama has reinforced the left's proclivity to condemn critics of radical Islam instead of the jihadists who fight in its name."


Why the Left Casts a Blind Eye on Radical Islam | RealClearPolitics

There are reminders in this piece that this is not new....

"Such suppression is nothing new for the administration. As early as early 2009, it renamed campaigns in the struggle against Islamic extremism "overseas contingency operations."

Then, in November 2009, U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan committed premeditated mass murder at Fort Hood in Texas, killing 13 and wounding 30 more. Astonishingly, the administration classified the massacre as a case of "workplace violence." It was certainly violent. It was also inspired by Hasans religion as he made clear while shouting "Allahu Akbar" as he sprayed military personnel with bullets. He also received guidance from foreign terrorist organizations and had exchanged emails with al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki.

Last September in a White House speech, Obama actually declared that ISIL -- even as it was establishing a new caliphate in Iraq and Syria -- had nothing to do with Islam.

I suspect most have not actually read Obama's remarks. So here is the link to his entire speech

Remarks by the President at National Prayer Breakfast | The White House

Here are excepts which put his comments in the correct context

Quote:
But part of what I want to touch on today is the degree to which we've seen professions of faith used both as an instrument of great good, but also twisted and misused in the name of evil. ..we also see faith being twisted and distorted, used as a wedge -- or, worse, sometimes used as a weapon. From a school in Pakistan to the streets of Paris, we have seen violence and terror perpetrated by those who profess to stand up for faith, their faith, professed to stand up for Islam, but, in fact, are betraying it. We see ISIL, a brutal, vicious death cult that, in the name of religion, carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism -- terrorizing religious minorities like the Yezidis, subjecting women to rape as a weapon of war, and claiming the mantle of religious authority for such actions...how do we, as people of faith, reconcile these realities -- the profound good, the strength, the tenacity, the compassion and love that can flow from all of our faiths, operating alongside those who seek to hijack religious for their own murderous ends?
.

Quote:
Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. 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, 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. Michelle and I returned from India -- an incredible, beautiful country, full of magnificent diversity -- but a place where, in past years, religious faiths of all types have, on occasion, been targeted by other peoples of faith, simply due to their heritage and their beliefs
Read the entire speech, see how this paragraph belongs, indeed needs to be included. Put away your sound bites and take something to relieve your Obama Derangement Syndrome. Even uber conservative David Brooks today came out in support of Obama's call for religious humility.

I will say that you make a valid point.

I also will say that is was said at a time in history that it should have been toned down. Folks watching others be killed publicly in the name of a religion DO NOT NEED A LECTURE. Most people get it..they do not need to be talked down to and that is one of my big problems with this President.

Factually, I say you make a point.....in reality, it was very insulting under the current circumstances.

So who was insulted? People who were there listening to the entire speech many of whom are religious leaders of various denominations up to the Dalai Lama, or people who heard sound bites on TV. The only people Obama insulted was ISIL, of course that did not get reported as it does not fit the RW meme of how weak he is in his words condemning terrorism in the name of Islam. There never is a time in history when somewhere some group is using a philosophy whether religious or political as an excuse to slaughter others. It is never a mistake to ask that everyone pause and reflect on their certainty before they use a gun, an knife, a nuclear weapon, or a match to take another's life.
