I am sorry you don't like Christians I hope you don't mind if they pray for you anyway.

Truth is, you guys want one thing: American ground troops fighting ISIS.

Nothing Obama does or says will be good enough until he does that.

Which is why you should be paid no attention to.

Your comment is insincere, picking and choosing what to quote is distorting the real jist of the post.

AH yeah the crusades were 800 years ago when the world as a whole was a more barbaric place.
These ISIS idiots need to get into the 21st century or better destroyed and OUR President needs a dope slap for defending them. What the heck is wrong with Obummer? .... Actually it would be a shorter story about what is right with him.

Basic comprehension of what he said leads no rational human being to believe he was defending them.

The world is still a pretty barbaric place outside your suburban paradise here in the states. Just across the border from the US a couple months ago 42 school children were shot and burned...

It is sincere. There is no need to copy your entire post since the rest only confirmed your views of Christians. You don't like them. I get it. Again, I am sorry you feel that way.

True. How do you defend someone by saying this about them "brutal, vicious death cult that, in the name of religion, carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism "?

FWIW, I am a Christian and I had no problem with what Obama said and did not feel I or my religion was being attacked. As a Christian I know that there are lots of actions performed by Christians in the name of the religion that should be criticized and denounced.
I'm not a Christian, but it looks to me that Obama goes out of his way to avoid using ISIL and Islam or Muhammad or Allah in the same sentence. Though he had no problem connecting Christian misdeeds to 'in the name of Christ,' ISIL uses 'the mantle of religious authority' to justify its barbarism.

As neither a Christian nor Muslim, if asked to identify which specific religious followers Obama Specifically attacked more, I'd go with Christians.

Christian tomfoolery has a far more recent past to draw from.
