I have, on several occasions, written on the topic of President Obama’s faith, or apparent lack thereof. More specifically, is he is Muslim, or as he claims, a Christian? Those interested in the topic might find these three articles enlightening:
Also enlightening is this article from February of this year, which speaks of his utter lack of knowledge of history, and his inappropriate and insulting rhetoric about Christianity (and America—always America) at the National Prayer Breakfast. And of course, as always, Mr. Obama defends Islam:
And now we return to the topic again, as Amy Miller at Legal Insurrection writes:
At this point, I’ve pretty much given up on the idea that I’ll be able to make it through a week without somehow being maligned, insulted, or “made to care” about something by the President of the United States. He is who he is, and he’s made it abundantly clear that he’s not going to turn a 180 anytime soon.
Yet I was somehow still shocked when I heard that he had taken a beat during a recent speech to lob an insult at Christians in general for being…un-Christian, or something.
Did I mention this happened during his speech at the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast?
‘On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love,’ Obama said. ‘And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.’ As the crowd began to murmur, the president backed off, saying, ‘But that’s a topic for another day.’
‘I was about to veer off,’ he explained. ‘I’m pulling it back.’
‘Where there is injustice we defend the oppressed,’ Obama said, returning to his prepared remarks. ‘Where there is disagreement, we treat each other with compassion and respect. Where there are differences, we find strength in our common humanity, knowing that we are all children of God.
Well of course! When you’re “sort of God,” like Barack Obama, you’re uniquely positioned and qualified to comment on the failings of Christians. You’re also anxious and always willing to do so at Christian gatherings, because on the occasion of a solemn meeting of the faithful to remember and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, what better and more appropriate opportunity to trash Christianity and its adherents?
I’ll let the invaluable Mark Steyn have the (next to) final word:
At a so-called Easter ‘prayer breakfast’, President Obama, as is his wont, took another swipe at Christians:
‘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 listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.’
Each to his own. I get concerned that, as the President was lecturing those Christians less perfect than him, some 150 students were slaughtered at Garissa University in Kenya for no other reason than that they were Christian. Had I been at that prayer breakfast, I would have walked out in protest.
Oh, wait, you can’t do that with the President of the United States. The joint’s in lockdown. So, okay, I’d be stuck in there until the 40-car motorcade had left and it’s safe to reopen the public thoroughfares. But I would have booed. Is it too much to expect freeborn Americans
occasionally to show a little irritation at both the President’s condescension and, given that some of the oldest Christian communities on earth are currently being exterminated, his ghastly bad taste?
Our president is a malicious fool and an international embarrassment.
