At the National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama said, “lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”
The inquisition was 1,000 years ago. Has, or will, Obama say that ISIS is burning, torturing and murdering people in the name of Muhammad? This is a fact that if your eyes are open, you can see happening every day!
ISIS says they are a “Muslim state.” The world calls them Islamic terrorists. Obama calls them “a terrorist organization.” Renowned as a community organizer with a booming voice and great rhetorical skill, perhaps he can convince these folks not to be terrorists anymore!
It is not just a pathology. What is coming from this man is a naked danger to the “borders, language and culture” of America. Am I a racist? The progressive liberals say so. I ask a simple question: am I against his black half or his white half?

Editor’s note: The Inquisition began around 1250 and ended around 1400. The full text of the president’s speech included these comments: “We see ISIL (ISIS), a brutal, vicious death cult that, in the name of religion, carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism ... subjecting women to rape as a weapon of war, and claiming the mantle of religious authority for such actions.”
