Obama once again targets Christians in White House prayer breakfast remarks

Rebel Staff
 

Despite Easter being just last Sunday, Barack Obama wasted no time in using the holiday to attack his critics.

“On Easter I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian I am supposed to love. And I have to say that sometimes, when I've listened to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned. But that's a topic for another day,” the President said to a laugh from the audience.

Obama may have been referencing those in favour of Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which has been the topic of debate for many pundits on both sides of the political spectrum.

This isn't the first time Obama has criticized Christians at the prayer breakfast. Earlier this year, Obama shifted from ISIS committing horrible acts in the name of Islam to Christians and the crusades.

“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,” he said.

Farid, in America……, hmmm, you could be right. " I disagree with those who say that Obama is a Muslim. He is simply a secular man, someone who sees himself as the highest form of sentience. No God. No higher being. That’s why atheists tend to dominate communist and socialist governments, because through government they create that all-powerful being on Earth. ", you may have something there.

Why the repost “freethinker”? Do you think we misread you the first time?

Again religion is an issue in the news. Yes, Islam has very bad dogma (kill all non-believers), but Christianity has also had its day (the crusades, and modern day blasphemy laws). Soemday LOGIC and REASON combined with overwhelming scientific evidence will end this farce we call religion and belief in imaginary gods. As an atheist i realize how deeply ingrained religious beliefs are in most people, indoctrinated while very young, continual brainwashing every Sunday, surrounding themselves with only like-minded family and friends. So much evidence debunks religious claims that it is amazing that anyone can actally believe this nonsensical bullshit. When asked for reasons why they believe in gods and the supernatural, real evidence is NEVER provided, only word-games and philosophical head games. The more you look into this, the more it is evident that all religions ancient frauds deeply rooted in all societies around the world.

Maurice, Obama just loves to play the Christian card. His criticism seems more acceptable if it is coming from himself as a fellow Christian – which we all know is a stinking pile of BS. I might have major and I mean major disagreements and dislike for Jimmy Carter, but I have no doubt his Christian faith is genuine, as misguided as he is. But Hussein is simply not credible and has been caught on camera correcting himself as to his faith. I am not even asserting he is a Muslim. I think he is whatever is most convenient to his progressive world view.

Hey Whaco, you scared to upset your Islamic Buddys. In the words of Nigal Farage “Who the hell are you”. George Washington, British by birthright, did a lot for the USA but you, all you do is make Americans and the rest of the Western World very very nervous. Why don’t you retire quietly before you are retired the hard way.

Ah, not unexpectedly is wasn’t long before FREETHINKER arrives on the scene with his tiresome, usual rant against “religion”; that it should be stamped out; expunged from the public forum. Of course, not his deeply-ingrained “religion” of humanism or atheism, whereby, man is the measure of all things; man is the authority, determines truth, and sets the rules – in other words, man is basically his own god!
FREETHINKER, you talk about indoctrinating and brainwashing people while very young.
Meanwhile, the teaching of evolutionism, foundational to the religion of humanism, in the schools is nothing less than the teaching, really, indoctrination, of atheism.
In throwing God and the Bible out of schools, they have not eliminated religion; they have simply replaced one religion with another one – humanism. Get that religion, which is at the core of every brutal totalitarian (be it communist /socialist/ fascist), regime out of the schools!
Regarding your use of colorful words like “bullsh$t”, I am reminded of what someone told me at university, “Profanity is a means by which the simple-minded strive to express themselves forcefully.”

Freethinker, you’re becoming very tiresome. And you’re just as “indoctrinated” as anyone else. In other words, you’re not nearly the “free thinker” the you believe yourself to be.

I think by now those of us who have the ability to reasonably and logically understand, and come to the conclusion, that Obama is an extreme, and very radical Muslim. I make this statement because of his own actions against goodness and decency. these include hatred of genuine Christianity, and decent morality.

Also, Obama does not support the legacy of the founding fathers, who founded the United States upon Christian-Biblical ideals, and faith in the God of Christianity. One example, is a quote that he made who he stated and I quote.
THE FUTURE MUST NOT BELONG TO THOSE WHO INSULT THE PROPHET OF ISLAM

Obama also said that supports ISLAM, over the founding faith of those brave men and women, who founded the USA. Need I go on.

I said it before, I’ll say it again, If Obama is a Christian, then I am a Duck. Christian love does not mean abandoning Christian doctrine. You can love someone and still say that what they’re doing is wrong. In fact, if you truly believe what they’re doing is wrong, you definitely will tell them, if you love them. That doesn’t you might not be wrong, we all can be wrong, but we can only act on what we believe is the truth.

He is so blatantly insulting. Nobody is going to make me believe that he doesn’t have some evil agenda. I don’t believe he is stupid. He scares me.

I don’t have a problem so much with someone recognizing failures or hypocrisy within the faith. There are hundreds of different Christian denominations many of who will have little to do with other denominations and at times we can be less than kind. Jesus himself said some would come claiming to have done works in his name to which he informed them “I never knew you”. It is important to listen to criticisms in case there is any merit however I do begin to wonder when the same critics are unwilling to apply the same standard of criticism to other religions or even towards non believers. I use to participate on a question and answer forum in which occasionally Christians were a bit mean spirited and at times a little gleeful about the impending end times destruction. Yes sometimes these were clearly trolls but at other times sadly it was Christians reacting rather than being proactive. Even more so was the extreme hateful vitriol by atheists who called for everything to putting Christians in insane asylums to killing or sterilizing. Thankfully a few atheists spoke up and expressed complete outrage at their colleagues. I do wonder how much of what Obama believes stems from his former Pastor’s indoctrination and when someone bring’s up the wrong’s historically committed by Muslim’s his reponse is “let’s not get into who did what to who”.

There is a common misconception of Christianity. There is a gulf of difference between Christian belief, and Christian religion. Those religious people are often the first to condemn and “throw stones” at anything they disagree with, or what runs contrary to their “beliefs” (see the Pharisees in the first four books of the Bible). These “Christians” that Obama’s referring to are definitely the religious ones, and he’s absolutely accurate in his statement. Those Christians who practice their beliefs are mostly the ones who “love”, as he put it… and are also mostly invisible to society.
HOWEVER, to plaster ALL Christians with this comment is irresponsible. Moreover, if Obama cannot take constructive criticism of his policies (and they ARE lunacy), then his pointing finger has 3 or more pointing back at him…

It’s easy for you to criticize Christianity barry, because you’re a muslim, just like your alcoholic father who killed himself while driving hammered – the tree moved out in front of your dad’s car and that was that.

Of course, Obama doesn’t practice Christian charity. He makes that very clear with his nasty disparagement of Christians. He wants to guilt us all into accepting Islamist atrocity.

Obama and Butts, using Raster to crucify more Christians. Metaphorically but none the less lethally.

No one is fooled by Obama’s loyalties. They are not to America, to Americans, or to Christ.

Christians may not believe in evolution, but at least they have let their religion evolve !

One should remember that Christianity grew up over time, unlike the Dogma called Islam that Obama is in bed with. He also has Mau Mau in his blood

Obama said, “On Easter I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian”. Obama says he is “a Christian”? Watch this video and decide:

Plus, former “Saturday Night Live” star Victoria Jackson released a song called “There’s a Muslim living in the White House.” Just humorous and entertaining?
