Former Baptist pastor and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has said that President Barack Obama has shown an "undying support" for Muslims, while his actions are against Christians and Jews. Huckabee's criticism stems from last week's National Prayer Breakfast, where Obama used the Crusades as an example of Christians doing "terrible acts" in the name of Christ.
"Everything he does is against what Christians stand for, and he's against the Jews in Israel. The one group of people that can know they have his undying, unfailing support would be the Muslim community. It doesn't matter whether it's the radical Muslim community or the more moderate Muslim community," Huckabee said on "Fox and Friends" on Monday.
Obama said in his speech on Thursday: "Unless 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." more >>
The mayor of Irving, Texas, claims that the first known Islamic Tribunal court in the United States won't have legal authority to impose Shariah law in the state.
In a statement posted on her Facebook page Friday, Irving Mayor Beth van Duyne denied that the Islamic Tribunal at the Islamic Center of Irving has garnered legal power.
President Obama has hijacked Christianity in an attempt to defend Islam. At the National Prayer breakfast Thursday, he said, "There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency, that can pervert and distort our faith." And that there will always be people willing to "hijack religion for their own murderous ends." So we shouldn't "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."
Yes, people have done terrible deeds in the name of Christ, but they were against the teachings of Christ. Some of the Crusaders committed atrocities that couldn't be more contrary to the teachings of Christ. They were the ones who "hijacked" a religion, Christianity, by disobeying what Christ taught.
But contrary to the president's assertions, this is not the case with Islam. Islam is not being "hijacked"—it is being obeyed. The terrorists are following the teachings of the Qur'an and the example of Muhammad. more >>
Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of First Baptist Dallas megachurch in Texas, says Jesus Christ would be outraged by President Obama's audacity when he compared the Crusades and Inquisition to the mass slaughter being committed by the Islamic State terror group.
Jeffress joins a multitude of conservative Christian voices — the Revs. Franklin Graham, Samuel Rodriguez, The Catholic League's Bill Donohue and Family Research Council President Tony Perkins — in condemning Obama for comparing Christianity to the atrocities being committed by ISIS.
" … [L]est 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. … So this is not unique to one group or one religion. There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency that can pervert and distort our faith," Obama said during his speech at the 63rd annual National Prayer Breakfast, just one day after he met with Muslim leaders whose names White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Friday wouldn't be release to the press at this time. more >>
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham warned that President Obama will soon "unleash hell" on the Middle East if he carries on with his plans on striking a nuclear deal with Iran without listening to Congress and his critics.
"The Arabs and the Israelis are not going to allow the ayatollahs in Iran to have a nuclear capability only contained by the UN. … So Obama is about to unleash hell on the Mideast," Graham said on the "Hugh Hewitt Show."
"He's about to create a nuclear arms race by wanting a deal with the Iranians so badly that he's about to make the mistake of a lifetime," added Graham, who might run for president. more >>
An all-female police force of the Islamic State terror group has released a manifesto which is laced with references to the Islamic scriptures, encouraging girls as young as 9, to marry Jihadis and asking women to remain "hidden and veiled" and serve their "masters."
The all-female Al-Khanssaa Brigade's media wing uploaded the manifesto, "Women in the Islamic State: Manifesto and Case Study," onto a jihadist forum used by ISIS to be distributed among its Arabic-speaking supporters, according to Quilliam, a U.K-based counter-extremism think tank.
The treatise is the first such document of its kind, and fundamentally misogynist claiming that the role of women is "divinely" limited, says Quilliam, which translated the text into English. more >>
