"And 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."By saying that, he basically gave Christianity (specifically Catholicism) the moral equivalency of the Islamic State. Make no mistake about it, this was a direct and quite intentional slam against the Catholic Church. An institution that most liberals, like Obama, hate because of its stand on gays, abortion, and same sex marriage.
This is not the first attack on, or proof that, Obama is at war with Catholics. His mandate for contraception availability under ObamaCare was a direct hit against the Church's stand on contraception and and the morning-after pill. He could have used his pen to give Catholic institutions an exemption to the mandate but, instead, he prefers to wage war with the Church in our courts over this mandate.
But, don't just think its Catholics that he doesn't like. Remember his "clinging to their guns and bibles' comment. In essence, President Obama pretty much doesn't like Christianity at all. This, even though he claims to be one.
