So, Obama used his moment at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast to point out that although ISIS “carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism,” it’s important for us to remember that people have used the teachings of Jesus to justify acts of barbarism, such as the Crusades, the Inquisition, slavery, and Jim Crow [laws].
Anyone with a modicum of intellectual curiosity knows that the Crusades was a reaction to medieval barbarism. It was a retaliation. A rejection. As a matter of fact, Mr. Obama, the Crusades were launched to fight the medieval version of ISIS.
But wait a minute.
I thought this wasn’t about religion? Isn’t it you and your administration that are bending over backwards to disassociate Islam from ISIS? Then why choose to invoke Christianity at all? Isn’t religion irrelevant to current conditions in the Middle East?
I am floored by the relativism. I have actually witnessed a person condemn the Crusades while the world is witnessing the barbarism that motivated them. What kind of fool…
Never mind. I forgot who we’re talking about here.
