On Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast Barack Obama attacked Christians equating the barbaric actions of ISIS today to Christianity.
The President used his warped version of the Crusades to bash Christians.
He also blamed slavery and Jim Crow laws on Christians?
“Humanity has been grappling with these questions throughout human history. Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place. Remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. And our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

On Friday Columbia University professor Christia Mercer defended Obama arguing that in 2015 Christians are still bombing and destroying villages across Europe in the name of Christianity.
Via Talking Points Memo:
In 2015, longstanding religious hatred and political wrangling are again sweeping Europe with their own shadowy sources in the last century. Kings, princes and politicians again employ draconian measures to control criticism and stop change. In this global struggle, villages have been destroyed, schools bombed, and disease left unchecked. Nor have our contemporaries lacked imagination in their violence. Schoolgirls have been kidnapped, journalists beheaded, and interrogation methods enhanced. Our cycle of violence is much the same as that of our predecessors. Unchecked power and ignorance promote loathing, leading to increased viciousness, intolerance, and more hatred. Chérif Kouachi, one of the men responsible for the Charlie Hebdo massacre, was first moved to radicalism by images of American soldiers humiliating Muslims at Abu Ghraib prison. Brutality and stupidity beget more of the same.
Of course, this is completely fabricated. The real question is – Why is an ignorant crackpot like this allowed anywhere near American children?
