Obama addressed the United Nations today and stated that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
Here’s what Erick Erickson said about this ridiculous statement: “It is an orthodox Christian belief that Mohammed is not a prophet. Actual Christians, as opposed to many of the supposed Christians put up by the mainstream media, believe that Christ is the only way to salvation. Believing that is slandering Mohammed. That’s just a fact. If you don’t believe me, you go into the Middle East and proclaim Christ is the way, the truth, and the life and see what happens to your life.”
Quoting Gandhi, Obama also equated religious intolerance with violence. Of course, this was a continuation of the Administration’s thinly veiled attacks on free speech. And the media seems to be catching on. Just today, Obama was accused of “caving to the Islamic blasphemy agenda” in a leading Washington Times editorial.
Finally, in condemning violence against certain Muslim sects, Obama referred to the Shiites with the euphemism “pilgrims.” Some suggest that this was an attempt at moral equivalency with the Christian pilgrims who first arrived in America, but we think that’s a bit of a stretch.
