Bill Donohue comments on remarks made today by President Barack Obama at the White House Easter breakfast:
“On Easter,” the president said, “I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love. And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.”
Well, Mr. President, I get more than concerned when I hear you denigrate Christians—no one can forget your swipe about them clinging to their guns or religion—I get nauseous.
The president had a grand opportunity to say something timely and urgent, such as the following: “I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love. This is not always easy, especially when Muslim barbarians single out Christians for execution in Kenya.”
Last week, Obama could not muster the courage to mention by name the religious affiliation of those who were chosen for execution—they are called Christians—but he has no problem letting the name Christian roll off his lips when it comes to disparaging them.
The reason why Obama did not mention Christians by name last week is because he does not want to offend Muslims. The reason he mentioned Christians by name today is because he does not mind offending Christians. It’s just that simple, and just that sick.
