Addressing the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday, President Obama admonished his audience not to get on a “high horse” about Islamic terrorists (of course he did not name them) since atrocities had been committed in the name of many religions or, as he put it more specifically, “Unless 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. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”

Well, that doesn’t mean me.  As a Jew, I’m exempt from anything done “in the name of Christ.”  But frankly I was appalled by what Obama said. Many faiths could be cited, including communism, obviously, also a kind of religion that was responsible for exponentially more deaths — via Stalin’s Gulag, Mao’s Cultural Revolution and Great Leap Forward, the killing fields of Cambodia, etc. — than all other belief systems combined, although none of them are doing it now.  Right now it’s Islamic radicalism that just the other day placed a human being in a cage and burned him alive, an act not, to my knowledge, even performed by Dr. Mengele.  And it was done in the name of Allah.

And yet Obama saw fit to lecture his audience on the Crusades and slavery, done “in the name of Christ,” subjects of which his audience was undoubtedly well aware and, needless to say, did not approve in the slightest.  Yet still the president felt he had to hector them.  Why?

To begin with, we can find some the answer in his criticism of ISIS, which Obama described as  ”a brutal vicious death cult that in the name of religion carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism, claiming the mantle of religious authority for such actions.” Note the now unsurprising use of the word “religion,” not “Islam,” or the even more telling “Mohammed,” a warlord who married a little girl and a figure, one can safely say, not very much like Christ.  Nevertheless, Obama can blacken Christians and name them in a speech, but not Muslims.

The reason is not complicated.  Obama is not a religious person.  He rarely appears in church, except for political purposes.  He is titularly a Christian, but identifies emotionally, from his youth in Indonesian madrassas and from his ideological predisposition, with Third World Muslims.  But now he is confronted with those same Muslims behaving like barbarians across Africa and the Middle East and sometimes into Europe and America.

What would be his reaction to that?  Pretty much what it is for most throughout the Islamic world — shame.  As many have noted, Islam is a shame culture (the kind of society that will go berserk over cartoons) and, like it or not, our president is part of it culturally.  That does not mean he is stoning adulterers or cutting off the hands of thieves or treating women like chattel, but it does mean he is genuinely and quite deeply ashamed of the religion he, in part, came from.  He cannot adjust to or accept the calamities it is causing.  Unlike the president of Egypt, he cannot name it.

This also explains Obama’s determination to whitewash the behavior of Iran and make a deal with the Islamic Republic that will jeopardize the entire world.  It also helps make more clear his ambivalent (at best) relationship to the state of Israel and its leaders.

It grieves me much to write this, because it is a horrible situation.  Obama is not a Manchurian candidate and never was.  He never had to be.  He is just absolutely the wrong human being to be leading the West at this point in history.  Heaven help us.

Simon is onto something here, although I can’t totally believe that Obama’s reluctance to use any terms that include “Muslim” or “Islam” stem entirely from shame.

I honestly believe that he identifies more with Islam than with Christianity. Oh, he’d never admit it, but look at the evidence. Going back to the statements in his books, the fact that his background doesn’t include any real Christians, but rather either Muslims, or Rev. Wright’s Black Liberation Theology. And talk about a “reach,” comparing the Crusades from centuries ago to Radical Islamic terrorists committing heinous acts of barbarism TODAY. The comparison was viewed as ludicrous by just about all who heard it or read it. Yes, it was ludicrous, but wouldn’t the “smartest man in the world” have known that? He will resort to twisting himself in linguistic knots to keep from labeling the barbarians currently wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria as “Islamic” in any sense.

Regardless of what he says (remembering that he is a proven serial liar), there is little evidence that he IS a Christian. He doesn’t attend church and in general doesn’t exhibit any of the trappings of a real practicing Christian except to occasionally quote a self-serving passage from the Bible (often incorrectly).

I believe that if it was left to grand jury, after all of the evidence was presented, they’d find him to be a closet Muslim.

    Good piece and commentary.

    None of this should be a surprise to anyone since he told us long ago in his book that he would “stand with the muslims…”. He’s keeping that promise.

    Had there been the slightest investigation by the lamestream media back in ’08 he would have never been nominated much less elected.

    Lastly, he’s skipped a number of NDOP events but he’s never missed any muslim events. Closet muslim? Nah… he’s been out long ago. He just won’t say the words.

    • Garnet92 says:

      Thanx ‘Nox, the irony is that some of his early statements (like standing with muslims) were truth, yet the voting majority didn’t believe them, yet they believed so many of other things that he said that were lies. It seems that the LIVs just can’t get straight what to believe and what to dismiss – they’re 180 degrees out of phase.

      And you’re 100% right about the lamestream media giving him a pass, they refused to look into or publicize anything that might be negative – and look at what that got us.

      But he’s still “in the closet.” If he declared today that he is, in his heart, really a muslim, his approval would drop to 20% or less – he can’t “come out” until after he is out of office.

  2. I.R. Wayright says:

    If Obama is not a muslim, please explain why he has appointed so many in places they should never be, ordered the purge of anything depicting muslims as a problem in government training manuals, wears a ring bearing the phrase, “No God but Allah.” Let’s ask the White House cook staff if they ever serrve pork products.
    The real reason he doesn’t want to offend muslims is because he is one of them.
    Someone else theorized that Obama is a communist and just uses Islam to hasten the demise of the country. Either way, the fundamental transformation of America is well underway, unless we stop it.

    • Garnet92 says:

      Agree with all of your comment I.R. and especially like the comment about inquiring about pork ever being served. I never thought of that, but it is just another question to which we won’t get a truthful answer. Even if it’s never served, we’ll be told that it is – can’t believe ANYTHING that comes out of this “administration.”

  3. Kathy says:

    He’s going to need a bigger closet to hide all of his dirty little secrets.

    I’d bet you my N&F paycheck he’s muslim. There are dozens of little nuances that point to it, from the ring he wears, to the inflection in his voice when he says words referring to their holidays, such as Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr, etc and most especially the way he says ‘holy Quran’. When he mentions the Bible, it’s not preceded with the word holy, but the Quran always is.

    I would disagree and say he is a religious man – he’s just not a Christian. His youth was too steeped in Islam to be anything else. Although the media talks like O attended church regularly, his attendance at Wright’s church was sporadic and only for political gain.

  4. captbogus2 says:

    By their own stated beliefs muslims are not to be trusted with anything they say to an infidel. His time in Wright’s “church” was a ploy and part of a lie to the American people that he was, ‘one of us’.

    • Garnet92 says:

      Right again capt. It’s time that we all publicize more loudly that Ofartface feels that he is totally justified to lie to us infidels since his “holy” book condones it.

  5. vonMesser says:

    My ONLY point to make is that one sentence is too long. It should read just: “He is just absolutely the wrong human being to be leading the West.” The phrase “….. at this point in history.” is superfluous.

    • Garnet92 says:

      True dat vonMesser. I might even pare the statement down further; “He is just absolutely the wrong human being to be leading” would satisfy me. I might even suggest that “anything” be added to that statement.

  6. Clyde says:

    This asshole let that cat out of the bag a LONG time ago. “The call to prayer is the most beautiful sound in the world to me”. “I will stand on the side of my muslim brothers”. Jesus H.Christ, even Helen Keller or Stevie Wonder could see THAT. Good post, Garnet.

    I agree. He is the worst choice for the US but the perfect marionette for his owners. Just like Hillary. If you compare his photo from 2005 and today, he is showing just how much drain it is on him. We can only have one god in our lives. Only one gives, the others like fortune, fame or ideology are vampires draining even the very essence of our spirit. I do Not believe for a minute Obama has the IQ or inner power to have set all these chain of events in motion. But, like the best little sheep, he has an agenda set that he follows Because he knows the consequences of failure to perform.
