Today at the National Prayer Breakfast, in the context of talking about horrible things that ISIS does, Pres. Obama, pseudo-sophisticate in chief, said:
“Unless 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.”
Did he just draw a moral equivalence between Christianity and radical Islamo-Fascism? HERE
I note that the Inquisitions (there were more than one and they are not well understood) were a long time ago, and the Crusades were a lot longer ago. ISIS burned a guy a few days ago.
Also, he won’t say that what ISIS did came out of Islam, qua Islam, but he won’t hesitate to suggest that the ills that Christians perpetrated came from Christianity, qua Christianity.
