You can tell when someone does not like you. They may try and act civilly. They may try and convince others that they like you. But, when they talk to other about you, they seem always to manage to get in that veiled slap. That jab at your character or a mention of some dispute you have had with them. They may even play it off as an attempt to be funny, but you and they know. They hate you. This has continued to come through with our president. Obama once again calls out Christians for not going along while ignoring Christians deaths.
Towards the end of his speech at Tuesday morning’s Easter Prayer Breakfast, President Barack Obama appeared to veer off script to make some comments that implicitly referenced the fierce debate that has been raging over the last week about “religious freedom” laws in Indiana, Arkansas and elsewhere.
“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love,” Obama said. “And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.” As the crowd began to murmur, the president backed off, saying, “But that’s a topic for another day.”
“I was about to veer off,” he explained. “I’m pulling it back.”
This means, at the very least, that Obama thinks that standing for what you believe is an unloving act. Yet, this is not where I want our focus to be. I want us to understand that this is not the first time that the president has made such remarks. Remember the “high-horse” remarks?
Also, it must be noted that Obama never once mentioned the massive loss of Christian lives this year. Lives lost at the hands of Muslims. No mention of the 147 dead in his home state of Kenya. No mention of the Coptic Christians in Egypt. No mention of the thousands slain and displaced in Syria and Iraq. Not, we remember, or pray for them or their families. Not once, at an Easter pray breakfast.
Rather we get rhetoric
“Where there is injustice we defend the oppressed,” Obama said, returning to his prepared remarks. “Where there is disagreement, we treat each other with compassion and respect. Where there are differences, we find strength in our common humanity, knowing that we are all children of God.”
Let me translate that for you. “Where those we want to have license to live as they wish, we will fight you unloving Christians. Where you disagree with this agenda, we will ignore your pain and belittle and deride you at every opportunity.”
It has been widely pointed out that Obama downplays the atrocities of the Muslim and magnifies the flaws of Christians. The reason is that he hates Christians. He wants to belittle and silence the Christian. And as things are going, he will get that accomplished.
Probably sooner than later.
