I was just asked by someone greatly concerned about Barack Hussein Obama and his continued promotion of Islam to write an article on his latest case of appeasement and dhimmitude. I assured her that not only have I written about him plenty of times already, but I would certainly be putting pen to paper on his latest outrage.
In case you have not heard, the most pro-Islam – and the most anti-Christian – POTUS ever just gave an incredibly bad talk at the National Prayer Breakfast of all places, telling us that ISIS and some Christians are morally identical and we have no grounds to complain about Islam.
Yes he actually said that. As one report states:
At the National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama reminded attendees that violence rooted in religion isn’t exclusive to Islam, but has been carried out by Christians as well. Obama said that even though religion is a source for good around the world, there will always be people willing to “hijack religion for their own murderous ends.”
“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,” Obama said.
This is wrong on so many counts that one is left utterly flabbergasted. First of all, what exactly transpired during the Crusades and the Inquisition? Were they in fact terrible blights on Christianity, or is there more to the story than the usual PC storyline?
Actually there is, but I won’t repeat it all here, since I have already written detailed articles on both episodes, giving them some context and perspective. See here for more on this:
I encourage you to have a read of these two pieces if you want more background and insight into what actually transpired and why. But in the meantime, Catholic writer Bill Donohue offers a short look at these two historical events, along with a bit of strong commentary on our Dhimmi-in-Chief:
Obama’s ignorance is astounding and his comparison is pernicious.
The Crusades were a defensive Christian reaction against Muslim madmen of the Middle Ages. Here is how Princeton scholar and Islamic expert Bernard Lewis puts it: “At the present time, the Crusades are often depicted as an early expansionist imperialism—a prefigurement of the modern European countries. To people of the time, both Muslim and Christian, they were no such thing.” So what were they? “The Crusade was a delayed response to the jihad, the holy war for Islam, and its purpose was to recover by war what had been lost by war—to free the holy places of Christendom and open them once again, without impediment, to Christian pilgrimage.”
Regarding the other fable, the Inquisition, the Catholic Church had almost nothing to do with it. The Church saw heretics as lost sheep who needed to be brought back into the fold. By contrast, secular authorities saw heresy as treason; anyone who questioned royal authority, or who challenged the idea that kingship was God-given, was guilty of a capital offense. It was they—not the Church—who burned the heretics. Indeed, secular authorities blasted the Church for its weak role in the Inquisition.
According to St. Louis University and Crusade scholar Thomas Madden, “All the Crusades met the criteria of just wars.” How many ISIS atrocities, Mr. President, have met the criteria of just wars? The ones where they buried people alive, stoned children, raped women, and crucified men? Moreover, according to Henry Kamen, the leading authority on the Inquisition, a total of 1,394 people were killed during the Inquisition. Today, Muslim madmen kill more than that in a few months.
The President should apologize for his insulting comparison.
He certainly should. Imagine offering this brainless moral equivalency at a National Prayer Breakfast! And imagine even further if Obama were invited to speak at an important Islamic event, and he started waffling on about how Islam has its bad eggs too, etc.
He would never, ever, even countenance doing such a thing. But when it comes to bagging Christianity, well, this has become a favourite pastime of BHO. He does it at every available opportunity. He is one of the biggest apologists for Islam in America, and one of the most incessant adversaries of Christianity.
And of course he is just plain wrong about all this. While he did finally, reluctantly acknowledge that ISIS might in fact actually have something to do with Islam, he immediately offered this dhimmi remark: ISIS is “betraying it.” Um no, ISIS is not betraying Islam, it is carrying out the Islamic faith to a T.
These are devout Muslims who take their faith seriously. However, as I have written so often before, when a Christian kills in the name of Christ, then yes, he most certainly is betraying his faith. The New Testament nowhere commands a Christ follower to kill in the name of the religion.
But that too I have dealt with at length and in great detail. See here for example:
As I have documented elsewhere, the Islamic holy books and manuals of jurisprudence all enjoin violent jihad and terror against the infidels. This is standard Islamic practice, something Muhammad himself regularly engaged in, and he expected all his followers to do likewise. See some of the Koranic commands on this here:
Moreover, the Crusades took place a thousand years ago while Islamic acts of bloodshed, mayhem and terror happened – er, are happening right now. Has he already forgotten about the Jordanian pilot burned alive by these devout Muslims?
Has he forgotten about the Paris Islamic terrorist attack, the Sydney Islamic terrorist attack, the London Islamic terrorist attack, the Boston Islamic terrorist attack, etc, etc? Is he totally ignorant of the fact that since 9/11 alone there have been over 25,000 deadly Islamic terror attacks – 25,047 to be exact?
So Obama is guilty of gross dissimilitude, deception, and appeasement here. There simply is no moral equivalence between these two religions whatsoever. One is all about the love of God as demonstrated by the Prince of Peace, while the other is about the wrath of Allah promoted by this violent political ideology. There is no common ground here at all.
But Obama has been doing this for years now: denigrating Christianity while extolling the virtues of Islam. If it talks like a Muslim, walks like a Muslim, acts like a Muslim…. Whatever he is, he is no friend of the United States of America, and he is no friend of Christianity.
Thomas Sowell, writing about Obama’s recent trip to India said this about him: “Make no mistake about it, there is no society of human beings in which there are no rotten people. But for a President of the United States to be smearing America in a foreign country, whose track record is far worse, is both irresponsible and immature.”
He can be paraphrased about this situation as follows: for a President of the United States to be smearing Christianity in America, while defending political Islam, whose track record is far worse, is both irresponsible and immature.

You have to praise God for his faithfulness to human free will. Obama is exactly the president that the West deserves at this time. Time and time again, Obama and those of a like mind stand as a signpost to the deception of our generation and the destination of the path we are choosing.
We will never go before God and claim “But why didnt you warn us…”
Christians and anyone who values freedom and truth to any extent: choose to ignore the signs at your own peril!
How frustrating and terrible that he seems completely clueless and will cause so much further damage with his attitude.
I believe that Obama is a Muslim. there is no way he could be saying all these things if he wasn’t one.
Obummer went on to mention slavery etc to push his diabolical moral equivalence. This is a very good rebuttal of that idiocy:
People were pointing out Uncle Barry’s faults and peculiarities from the moment he was first elected. I don’t fully understand the USA election system, but am I right in thinking that he cannot run again for President? How much longer has he got?
I also now subscribe to the Obama is a moozie camp. One thing I really don’t understand though is that, in a country with a bit of a reputation for knocking of its leaders, how does this treacherous excuse for a POTUS still manage to draw breath?
Jo, I don’t believe that he’s clueless at all. I believe that he knows exactly what he’s doing.
He has a two-term limit Chris, and has two years to go on his second – plenty of time to cause even more damage.
Oh yes, he knows what he’s doing –
he’s DIABOLICAL !
Reading about Obama and his actions, tends to warp one’s mind. How could America have changed so much in so few years? We must be the generation that will witness ‘end times’. Signs of the times indeed.
Whatever we think of the current debacle in the Liberal Party, we can change our executive leader relatively easily, a good example of how the Westminster system is superior to the American one.
President Obama’s alleged “Christian affiliation” would appear to have much in common with Modernist, Liberal theology – that “it ain’t necessarily so” sheep’s clothing for spiritual wolves. Their emasculated “gospel” is a nebulous concatenation of the alleged “fatherhood” of a dead God, an “unrisen” and tragically dead “historical Jesus” and pious claptrap about an evolving brotherhood of humanity of all spiritual “stripes and hues”.
Orthodox Islam does not believe in the crucifixion death of Christ, nor does it therefore, believe He is risen from the dead. Orthodox Islam also denies the biblical doctrine of a triune Godhead, of whom Jesus is the eternal Son of the Father. There are, in these matters, some passing similarities between Islam and so-called “Liberal Christian” theology! Politics makes strange bedfellows yet again…
Kev – Re the “clueless”, I meant having no knowledge, understanding, or ability!
Jo and Kev, how about BHO being blinded – the blind leading the blind… ?
Ian: You are not alone.
There is a growing consensus that Obama ha always been a Muslim.
“The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer” – Barack Hussein Obama, Cairo speech 2008
Can’t say we weren’t warned.
THE KORAN – MUHAMMED
In the name of God the merciful, the compassionate.
Those who disbelieve and debar others from God’s path. He will bring their deeds to nothing. And the faithful who do good works and believe what has been revealed to Muhammad, -which is the truth from the Lord – He will forgive their sins and ennoble their estate. – 47:1
This is because the unbelievers follow falsehood, while the faithful follow the Truth from their Lord. Thus, God lays down for mankind their rules of conduct.
When you meet the unbelievers strike off their heads and when you have wreaked widespread slaughter among them, bind your captives firmly. Then either grant them their freedom or take a ransom from them, until War shall they lay down their burdens. – 47:4
Thus shall you do. Had God willed, He could Himself have punished them; but thus shall it be that He will test you, the one by the other.
As for those who are slain in the cause of God He will not bring their deeds to nothing. He will vouchsafe them guidance and ennoble their estate; He will admit them into the Paradise He has made known to them.

A Reader’s Personal Opinion\Comment:
Is Obama preparing for American “Dhimmitude”, and already treating Americans as “American Dhimmis” ?
I feel that our “Imperial” President, Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., AND His Administration, (through HIS, and HIS Administration’s, own Words, Actions, and Deeds), IS so obviously, very Islam, Muslim, Sympathitic Pandering, which about ALL of informed Americans are now fully aware of.
Obama seems to have such a “Protect Islam and Muslims at ANY Cost” attitude.
Obama seems to have an additional seemingly Anti-America, Anti Constitution, Anti Christian attitude.
Obama seems to behave as though there are NOT three Co-Equal Branches of Government, 1.Legislative, 2. Execitive, 3.Judicial, but ONLY just ONE “Branch” which IS “Obama”.
However, IF Obama wants to argue that there ARE Three “Equal” Branches, then they are 1. Obama, 2. Obama, 3. Obama, which by Definition would be “Equal”.
Obama seems to be promoting, and in preparation for an Islamic “Takeover”, and seems to be getting “Ready”, by treating the American People as “Dhimmi’s”, which are those Non Muslims in an Islamic State “Caliphate”, that are “Allowed” as “Protected”, but are still subject to Islamic Laws. Islamic Laws ARE Anti-Thetical to the U.S. Constitution, and ARE Anti American, Anti Freedom, Anti Free Speech. Americans can see this happening already, with the Islamic “Enclaves”, and the Islamic “No Go Zones” ALREADY spreading in America. There are MANY Location Maps available, being constantly updated, from DIFFERENT reliable sources, which ALL basically agree, showing their locations in America and in Europe.
