Re: My Problem With the President's remarks

I don't really see the President as someone who would want to drag Christianity thru the mud. He quotes scripture or Christian ideals in his remarks as much or more than other presidents that I am familiar with.

I honestly believe that he was pointing out the dark side of Christianity in an effort to discourage an "All Christians good, all Muslims bad" mindest.

I didn't find the remarks inflammatory, just somewhat naive as I wrote in my earlier posts.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

Re: My Problem With the President's remarks

ISIS would like nothing better than to have us paint all Muslims and followers of Islam as the bad guys.  It then becomes a powerful recruiting tool.  We need to drop the adjective "Islamic" in front of the terrorist label because it only fans the flames of religious hatred, and I think the President could have done a better job explaining that as Goose pointed out in a couple of posts.
