Assigned Reading: Obama Celebrates Ramadan, Calls Islam ‘Great Religion’
(FROM: NBC Chicago)
Now, it should be noted that George W. Bush hosted similar festivities as well, though I’m fairly certain he never went out of his way to praise Islam for its “commitment to justice and progress.”
My problem with this one is that President Obama has repeatedly gone out of his way to appease and embrace Islam while simultaneously ignoring or denigrating Christianity and Judaism. His first sit-down interview as president was with an Arab broadcaster. One of his first decisions was to force American Christians to provide taxpayer money for abortions abroad, and health care reform could abolish conscience rights of pro-life Christian hospital workers here at home, not to mention taxpayer-funded abortions. In Turkey, he said that “America is not and never will be at war with Islam.” He equated six million dead Jews in the Holocaust with the 60-year-long Palestinian search for a homeland.
To Barack Obama, Islam is commited to justice and progress, while Christianity is racist and volatile. Muslims everywhere are friends, while Christians get bitter and cling to their religion and guns.
There’s more, for sure, but even a peripheral glimpse at this administration will show that the celebration of Ramadan and praise for Islam without similar displays for other religions is par for the course for this president.
