At the National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama reminded attendees that violence rooted in religion isn’t exclusive to Islam, but has been carried out by Christians as well.

Obama said that even though religion is a source for good around the world, there will always be people willing to “hijack religion for their own murderous ends.”

One thought on “OBAMA AT NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST: ’PEOPLE COMMITTED TERRIBLE DEEDS IN THE NAME OF CHRIST’…”
  1. Throughout history, religious self-righteousness and intolerance have led to wars and inhumane acts against those who do not share the cultural and dogmatic theological views of the aggressors.

    Muslims have persecuted and killed Christians, and vice versa.
    Jews have persecuted and killed Muslims, and vice versa.
    Catholics have persecuted and killed Protestants, and vice versa.
    Hindus have persecuted and killed Muslims, and vice versa.
    Christians have persecuted and killed Jews, and … well, not so much vice versa.

    And each group has proclaimed — and continues to proclaim — with absolute certainty that God is on their side … which is why I prefer to not equate spirituality with organized religion.
