Obama to the World: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”

Why Did He Say This?

 Putting his statement in context, I refer you to a New York Times article titled: Obama’s Speech to the United Nations General Assembly — Text

The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.” – Barack Obama

Taking his words out of context is a disservice to the cause of liberty. The issue upon which we should focus isn’t his respect for Islam, but his readiness to use misstatements and untruths to advance his agenda.

The issue of importance was assigning responsibility to the murder of American personnel assigned to the U.S. embassy in Benghazi Lybia. His propaganda team hastily and intentionally assigned responsibility to maker of an amateur video.

My opinion: President Obama isn’t lifting Islam above either Christianity or Judaism. If true, such behavior would clearly mark him Muslim. To me, the travesty of this statement was his placing Islam on a level with Christianity and Judaism.

Islam is a cult founded over 600 years after the birth, death and ressurrection of Jesus Christ who, by the way, was a Jew from birth to death.

The Way, The Truth, The Life

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life

Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.”  – John 14:6 (Amplified)

There are not many paths to eternal life with the Living God. Muslims and Christians don’t worship the same deity. While there are similarities, and they are quite natural since Muhammad grew up among Jews and Christians on the Arabian Peninsula, those similarities alone don’t make them equal.

Christians outnumber Muslims and Muslims are coming to faith in Jesus Christ at phenomenol rates.

Yes, the cartoon is funny and it will have its day, but it was created wholly out of context with the president’s statement.

Let’s keep the main thing the main thing. The president’s statement was not encroachment on the First Amendment, but a dismissal of all faiths. By equating them, he dismisses them as irrelevant. I go so far as to say his statement implies official endorsement of atheism.

Your comments are welcome and invited.

One thought on “Obama to the World: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”

  1. Islam is not a faith of love, but a faith of murder, riots, supression, as well as destruction. Where do you see Christians rioting over a Bible being burned, etc.? Call it what it is! think of all the good that could be done with the money being spent to stop attacks on Christianity by Muslims!
