Prayer Breakfast: Obama Bashes American Christians, Ignores Christians Slaughtered in Kenya

Last week in Kenya, al-Shabab Islamic militants massacred 148 Christians at Garissa University College, first separating the Christian students from the Muslims and then shooting the Christians. This was yet another attack on Kenyan Christians, who have been targeted by Muslims multiple times.

Here is President Obama’s statement on the massacre:

Michelle and I join the American people in expressing our horror and sadness at the reports coming out of Garissa, Kenya. Words cannot adequately condemn the terrorist atrocities that took place at Garissa University College, where innocent men and women were brazenly and brutally massacred. We join the world in mourning them, many of whom were students pursuing an education in the pursuit of a better life for themselves and their loved ones. They represented a brighter future for a region that has seen too much violence for far too long. We also commend the heroism of the responders who lost their lives in the selfless protection of the students and faculty.

I know firsthand the extraordinary resilience and fundamental decency of the people of Kenya. So I know that the people of Garissa and all of Kenya will grieve, but their determination to achieve a better and more secure future will not be deterred. And neither will the resolve of the United States. We will stand hand-in-hand with the Kenyan Government and people against the scourge of terrorism and in their efforts to bring communities together. This much is clear: the future of Kenya will not be defined by violence and terror; it will be shaped by young people like those at Garissa University College – by their talents, their hopes, and their achievements. This is a message I will relay to the Kenyan people when I visit Kenya in July. Even at this difficult hour, the Kenyan people should know they have an unwavering friend and ally in the United States of America.

Notice a key bit of information missing from that statement? Yes, he didn’t specify that al-Shabab annihilated those students because they were Christian.

But wait. Tuesday morning Obama attended an Easter prayer breakfast at the White House. Maybe he mentioned the Christians slaughtered in Kenya.

Nope. Not a word. Nada. Zilch.

Oh, but he was quick to criticize those “less-than-loving” Christians. You know the type. They’re the nasty Christian florists and photographers who are happy to provide their goods and services to gay people, but please-please-don’t-make-me-condone-your-lifestyle-by-serving-your-alleged-‘wedding.’

On his high horse again. It did not go unnoticed.

He can mention Jesus Christ all he wants during his prayer breakfast as a sop to the Christian clergy who attend, but his failure to recognize the faith of the Kenyan victims combined with his contempt for Christians who honor traditional marriage tells me once again that Obama is a faux-Christian, a poseur who trots out his alleged “faith” only when expedient.

As Jesus said in Matthew 7:16:  “By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?”

    The President is a man of little learning. He knows a few things, most of which he misunderstands. He doesn’t have any intellectual curiousity. He’s like Chauncey Gardner but without the underlying wisdom that cultivating a garden brings.

  • Chris in N.Va. says:

    Obozo’s moral preening and prancing about (on his moral high horse [oh, try not to step into those steaming piles of indignation his horse leaves behind]) reminds me of a 1060’s vintage Tom Lehrer song about race relations, called “National Brotherhood Week” (it’s on Youtube, among other places). Lehrer’s preface to the song states: “I know there are those who don’t love their fellow man and I HATE people like that!”

    Yup. Paging Jeremiah Wright, paging the good Rev….are you there Rev?…

  • GWB says:

    Is there an attendance list for this event? I would like to see each of them asked their opinion of his failure to mention the massacres of Christians around the world and his little slap at Christians.

    Obama, despite any claims to the contrary, is NOT a Christian. He is also not a Muslim. The only god in his life is himself. Period.
