This past week at the G8 Summit in Northern Ireland, President Obama implored the crowd that had gathered to see him to step away from religious institutions such as Catholic schools. “They are divisive” he lamented, followed by his summation about Protestant schools: “If Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs…that encourages division”.
Now, there can be no doubt about the history of Northern Ireland. The region has long had a deadly and bloody background mainly due to resentments between Protestants and Catholics. This however is not a reason to formulate new animosity towards religious education. What should be said is Christianity is a religion of love not one of hate, but President Obama doesn’t take this path. He instead points the finger of blame upon the Christian religion. Ironic, I clearly recall when “Islamist terrorist” was banned from the document outlining our national security strategy.
So Christians are divisive, yet radical Islamist Jihadists are just the Middle East, grumpy version of The Walton’s? Mr. President, with all due respect, you say you are a Christian. Are you really?
The IRS targeted Conservative Tea Party groups; students in Ohio were told by our president to “reject voices that warn of government tyranny”; NSA listens to our conversations–and yet two radical Islamists maimed and killed Americans at the Boston Marathon, one of whom was on a watch list in Russia. NSA, how did you miss their phone calls?
Are these Jihadists not divisive?
Did the liberal media cover this? Well, Huffington Post felt it was more important to discuss what a fashion maven Obama has been. While the left is admiring the prez in his “mom jeans”, freedom of religion is a candle flickering in the wind.
Conservatives who have faith, love of country and value for all, are the last hope for America. When Mr. Obama was elected, never did I imagine the world would begin a desent into world castration. From the silencing of our Judeo/Christian religions to political correctness, and then there is the nanny state led by our nations mommy, Mayor Bloomberg.
Can I have a small Mr. Pibb before I go to bed, Nanny Bloomie? Yes, I separated leftover food and saved it for compost (or the New York City rats). I promise Mr. President, I will write “I will call Jihad yoga” on the blackboard 100 times. I will submit to the will of an assailant instead of having him say hello “to my little friend”.
Enough! People stand up! This is nonsense and we are not children. God gave us free will; let’s not give it up.
