We should be flattered. I think Obama reads the USMB. He just pulled the justification of Islamic Extremism as the, "because someone, somewhere, sometime did something worse". A tactic we here on the message board know well. Apparently we should not be so quick to judge cafe bombers, or marathon bombers, because of the Crusades in the eleventh century or the Spanish Inquisition in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries or the KKK in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

As much as I think I can grasp I still find it mind boggling that the President would state the Crusades, the Inquisition, and the KKK represent core qualities of Christianity. I respect the office of the President but other than that this person has definitely gone off my dinner invitations. And seriously Huffington Post? WTF

(As far as you fellow board members; This is all over the 'Twitterverse' but not one thread here? Shame, shame.)

This is the 4th or 5th thread on this. Why don't you ask the mods to combine with one of the them?

I see one other thread in Current Events. I think this should be in Religion also. Many events have multiple aspects and are discussed in multiple forums.

I see you would prefer there to be no threads.
I would prefer that RW traitors stop posting lies.

You're kidding, right?

In Liberal minds, rent free.
Because when we were cave men we clubbed other cave men just for the fun of it, all murder is acceptable. Let's not get on our high horse now.

I would prefer you kiss my ass.

They are in current events. I see this as an ongoing trend. Kind of like you. And I only see one, like you. Thank someone. :tongue-44:

Yes, Obama won against Bomb-Bomb-Iran McCain (Now Bomb-the-Ukraine McCain) and Lets-make-a-deal (for America) Romney. Yea, Obama. :woohoo:

Obama was bang on.

Here is how I put this same type of post.

Is the Pope slamming Islam for what the Vatican and Christianity used to do?

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/charlie-hebdo-pope-slams-deviant-forms-of-religion-in-wake-of-paris-attacks-9971981.html

Compare the tactics of Islam to those of Christianity when it ushered in the Dark Ages and Inquisition.


Are those tactics and ways not the same and does that not say that all idol worshipping religions, especially Christianity and Islam, are evil?

I also just found this.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jan/15/pope-francis-limits-to-freedom-of-expression

It seems strange that he would advocate violence against words and then try to restrict the freedom of speech that society has worked so hard to bring to all nations and peoples.

This was insulting enough to this blogger, who is usually quite civil and funny and never curses, to act out of character.

He is gnostic, and they loved padded rooms because they bounce around in and out of reality more safely.
