Skip to comments.Obama: Violence against religious groups has 'no place in our society'

President Obama said violence against religious groups has "no place in our society" after an elderly man tied to hate groups allegedly opened fire Sunday and killed three people outside a Kansas City Jewish community center and retirement community.
"Nobody should have to worry about their security when gathering with their fellow believers," Obama said at the opening of his remarks at the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast. "Nobody should have to fear for their safety when they go to pray."
Obama said the tragedy was "all the more painful" because it came as Jews were preparing to celebrate Passover and Christians were marking Palm Sunday.
"We've got to stand united against this kind of terrible violence that has no place in our society," Obama said.
He vowed full federal support of the investigation into the shooting.
"We see what happens around the world when this kind of religious-based or tinged violence can rear its ugly head," Obama said. "It's got no place in our society."
The suspect in the shooting is Frazier Glenn Cross, a former leader of a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. He served a three-year prison sentence in the late 1980s after being convicted of sending threats through the mail and weapons charges.
In addition to touching on the tragedy in Overland Park, Kan., Obama spoke briefly about his meeting last month with Pope Francis.
"I had a wonderful conversation with Pope Francis mainly about the imperative of addressing poverty and inequality," Obama said.
He said the religious and political leaders in attendance could take a lesson from Francis's willingness to embrace the poor and powerless who might otherwise be overlooked.
...but shoving infanticide and faggotry down their throats is A-OK?
Obama said violence against religious groups has "no place in our society" Unless it is against Bible believing Christians.
Maybe Obama should start looking within the Democrat Party.
Frazier Glenn Cross is a Democrat who ran for Congress as a Democrat in 2006.
“In advance of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus recent visit to the United States, President Obama gave an interview in which he viciously attacked Israel, suggesting that Israel was the cause of the peace process failure, that the United States could no longer protect Israel if the peace process failed and that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was a man of peace............”
what on EARTH does “the imperative of addressing poverty and inequality,”...have to do with some nazi puke killing jews?
Perhaps the key to understanding obamas comment is the buzz term...inequality...
I sense a “palestinian” tone there somewhere
If so, then smite the muzzies down (especially CAIR and the Muzzie Broz.)
He continued by noting that "the appropriate way to deal with religious groups is through the IRS, Homeland security and the FBI. That way we are able to maintain proper coordination of messages with the mainstream media."
Those are all government rules...and the Constitution says you can't make no law ESTABLISHING a religion.
None of those things establish a religion.
Because EVERY THING is about him, Obama.
I sense you’re right. He views the world through a prism that tells him every problem in the world is caused by the quest for rightness. This is why he’s wrong every time. He can’t help but find the worst explanation for what happened. So searching for meaning, he had to x out anything that looked like truth and come up with the well defined leftist position.
"This kind"? Opposed to what other kind?
David Koresh wants to chat
(note I think it was a nut and quite evil but still)
Shortly afterwards, when Hell froze over, Obama added “violence from The Religion of Peace has no place in our society either.”
No doubt a democrat. The KKK is and has been from it’s inception a terrorist arm of the democrat party; the party of slavery, secession, the KKK, Jim Crow, poll taxes, blocking school doors, bombing churches etc. What this POS did, he did in the tradition of the democrat party’s principles.
He called the first Fort Hood shooting work place violence. So I guess it don’t apply to Muslims.
and we all know what a warm regard he has for JOOOS!!
