Obama Praises Islam In His Easter Address
April 21, 2014 6:38am PST
As we reflect on the Easter holiday we’re to remember that Islam is a religion that teaches us to “love our neighbors as we love ourselves,” or at least that’s what the President said in his Easter address.
On the White House website it reads:
Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning…
…For me, and for countless other Christians, Holy Week and Easter are times for reflection and renewal. We remember the grace of an awesome God, who loves us so deeply that He gave us his only Son, so that we might live through Him. We recall all that Jesus endured for us – the scorn of the crowds, the agony of the cross – all so that we might be forgiven our sins and granted everlasting life. And we recommit ourselves to following His example, to love and serve one another, particularly “the least of these” among us, just as He loves every one of us.
The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. To remember, I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper. Whatever your faith, believer or nonbeliever, there’s no better time to rededicate ourselves to that universal mission…
Apparently he just couldn’t help himself. Then again it’s no secret that he’s held a special favor towards Islam, so for him to inject the “peaceful” religion into a Christian holiday shouldn’t be a major surprise.
Let me remind you that as far as human rights are concerned, Muslims have just about the worst record on the planet and one only has to look at their treatment of women to realize that.
So as we remember the sacrifices that Christ made for us and our sins, and we try to emulate his grace, let’s also overlook the fact that if we were trying to do the same in a Muslim country we would probably be missing a head before too long.
That’s not exactly treating your neighbor as you would want to be treated, is it?
