Obama’s Bad Christians – New York Post
President Obama made an excellent point this week about violence committed in the name of God and religion. It just happens to be the exact opposite of the point he intended.
In his speech to the National Prayer Breakfast, the president declared we have no right to “get on our high horse” about modern terrorist acts, given the “terrible deeds” committed “in the name of Christ” during the Crusades and the Inquisition.
We’ll leave it to others to sort out the history here, and to address the extraordinary bad taste the president showed in invoking Christian misbehavior from the Middle Ages at a time when innocent Christians in places such as Iraq and Syria are being beheaded and even crucified for their faith.
What strikes us is how unaware the president is that the bad Christian behavior he invokes is powerful evidence against his own refusal to concede those carrying out jihadist attacks around the world today have anything to do with Islam.
Yes, Christians have done terrible things in the name of Christ over the centuries. But here’s the rub: No one denies they were Christians.
Wouldn’t it be ridiculous to speak of the Inquisition without acknowledging the inquisitors were Christians? The same goes for Southern slaveholders who cited the Bible’s ambiguity on slavery to justify their practice.
So how is it the same man who lectures us about Christians doing bad things in Christ’s name cannot acknowledge the obvious point that terrorists such as those claiming to be avenging the Prophet Mohamad as they gunned down cartoonists in a Parisian newsroom were Muslim?
D’Souza Pleads Not Guilty To Charges, Required To Post Crazy $500,000 Bond – Weasel Zippers
Not only is this case an overreach, D’Souza’s lawyer claims the amount involved doesn’t fit the requirement to bring a criminal case, $25000. I’ve never seen anyone with this type of offense being required to put up that much bond. That is more than I’ve seen in assault and in some murder cases. Not sure there’s any reason to believe he would flee either, so why the restriction on travel?
NEW YORK (TheBlaze/AP) – Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative scholar who made the documentary “2016: Obama’s America,” pleaded not guilty on Friday to charges that he violated campaign finance laws and was released on $500,000 bond. His travel was also reportedly restricted to the United States.
A Republican candidate told government investigators that a conservative scholar and author lied to her about the source of donations made to her U.S. Senate campaign, a prosecutor disclosed at an arraignment Friday. The candidate, Wendy Long, made the statement to investigators as they were building a case against D’Souza, 52, Assistant U.S. Attorney Carrie Cohen said. Long lost to Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand in last year’s election in New York.

Simmons believes he knows what will stop school shootings. Not armed guards, oh no! What we need in Simmon’s Utopia are unarmed “peace keepers”
“The recent Sandy Hook incident put gun violence in the forefront but there’s a Sandy Hook every weekend in Chicago,” Simmons said,according to The New York Post. “The Sandy Hook incident and other incidents like it are important and have brought this discussion to the forefront, but still it seems that these kids are left out.”
He asked for funding for nonprofit organizations to put the “peacekeepers” in the schools.
“We have the peacekeepers in 25 cities and they’re just getting started but they need funding as well. We have to fund these programs. All of our underserved communities are at risk and that means you’re at risk,” he said, according to The Post.
Peace keepers! What will they do, have pizza on hand for some crazed gunman? Maybe milk and cookies? They will sing songs of peace and social justice perhaps, soothing the would be killer. Good grief, how stupid is this man? Has he ever lived in the real world?
