If you look at Jesus and Muhammad, the correct use for the President’s “Death Cult” label becomes obvious.
Talk about inconvenient truth!
From CNS News: “Rev. Graham to Obama: Unlike Christ, Mohammad ‘Killed Many Innocent People’ – His ‘True Followers’ Emulate Him.”
In response to President Barack Obama drawing a parallel between the barbaric acts of the Islamic State today with actions by Christians during the Crusades, which ended 700 years ago, evangelist Franklin Graham said there was a difference between Jesus Christ who “taught peace “ and did “not take life” versus Mohammed, who “was a warrior and killed many innocent people.”
President Obama made his remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday in Washington, D.C. He referenced the Islamist attacks on a school in Pakistan and in Paris – without using the words radical Islam – and he described the Islamic State, or ISIL, as “a brutal vicious death cult that, in the name of religion, carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism.”
Obama shortly thereafter said, “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.”
Now, now… let’s not start spouting historical facts and realities here, Franklin Graham… we’re talking about the blatherings of a President who never saw a fact that couldn’t be ignored or twisted to fit his desired policy goals. And as for the quoted scholars, well… until they learn to sweep distasteful history under the rug, they’ll never get tenure in the Ivy League institutions that train our leaders.
Bringing up the true story of Mohammad’s life, and the unfortunate fact that the Crusades (while certainly not justifying all they did) were a response to countless prior acts of murderous Islamic jihad… er… um… prior acts of the… the “death cult” (thank you, Mr. President, that’s good) which followed the example of Mohammad and claimed to be Islamic way back then, it’s just not… appropriate. We must always support our Dear Leader’s consummately self-assured view of things.
Seriously, we can only address what’s happening today if we will be honest about it. Obviously the White House resident is a long way from being able to address reality.
