Obama: I'm 'Concerned' By 'Less-Than-Loving Expressions By Christians'
President Barack Obama today suggested at the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast that he’s concerned by “less-than-loving” Christians.
“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that, as a Christian, I am supposed to love, and I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned, but that’s a topic for another day,” Obama said.
The White House later refused to comment on Obama’s meaning, but pundits on both sides of the aisle speculate that the president was referring to Indiana’s religious freedom law.
“What saddens me most is not the president’s consistent swipes at orthodox Christianity, it’s another missed opportunity,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said, explaining that Obama failed to bring attention to Christian persecution around the world.
Perkins claimed that Obama doesn’t want to discuss such persecution because his policies are, in part, responsible.
Megyn Kelly recalled how Obama not too long ago compared Islamic terrorism to the Crusades at the National Prayer Breakfast.
“Lest 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,” Obama had said.
