“I have not spoken with [the president] about the reaction to the remarks, but I know that there is a failed presidential candidate and an RNC chairman from the past who have criticized us,” Schultz said. “But I don’t have a response to either of those two people.”
This is what is called an ad hominem argument, Mr. Schultz. You might think you can just blow off the remarks of anyone that disagrees with you or the president, but to do so is pure and utter arrogance.
Today at the National Prayer Breakfast, the President implied that what ISIS is doing is equivalent to what happened over 1000 years ago during the Crusades and the Inquisition. Mr. President--Many people in history have used the name of Jesus Christ to accomplish evil things for their own desires. But Jesus taught peace, love and forgiveness. He came to give His life for the sins of mankind, not to take life. Mohammad on the contrary was a warrior and killed many innocent people. True followers of Christ emulate Christ—true followers of Mohammed emulate Mohammed.
If you want to talk about the perversion of religion, don’t pervert the facts.
I don’t like MSNBC. Typically. But this rant is spot on. That he knows that history shows the Crusades were largely in response to Muslims brutally taking over their lands is amazing to me. That whoever wrote President Obama’s speech didn’t know this astounds me.
This is something I shared on Facebook earlier today. Yet we are frequently reminded by history revisionists that the Christians committed atrocities such as the Crusades. While atrocities certainly happened, as with any war, it doesn’t come close to comparing to the Hell reaped by the Muslims across Europe that they were trying to stop.
