At the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, February 5th, 2015, President Obama actually had the gall to compare the Crusades and Spanish Inquisition of Christianity to the actions of Moslem terrorism in the middle-east. Was it a fair comparison? NOT EVEN CLOSE.
“And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades”…
FACT: The Crusades were DEFENSIVE missions, NOT conquests to spread Christianity. They were a direct response to Muslim aggression and conquest.
“and the Inquisition“…
FACT: Fewer people were sentenced to death during the Spanish Inquisition (estimates vary between 2,000 and 6,000) than have been killed by Moslem terrorism since 1980 alone – 9,256 . Nearly 3,000 were killed on 9/11/01 alone. This figure doesn’t include the smaller attacks that occur almost daily. NONE of the people killed in the Inquisition were anything other than other Christians. Obama’s own drone strikes have killed nearly 2,500.
He then goes on to state: ” In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”
FACT: Slavery by Christians was justified by COMMERCE, not Christianity. The Bible only speaks to how slaves and masters should behave. Many early Christians were enslaved by the Romans. The Koran commands Moslems to take slaves.
FACT: “Jim Crow” laws were put in place by Democrats.
FACT: Northern Protestant Christians led the way in ending slavery, starting in Massachusetts and Vermont.
FACT: Slavery started in the middle-east, and several Moslem countries STILL practice slavery to this day.
