Skip to comments.Obama: Violence against religious groups has 'no place in our society'
Posted on 04/14/2014 7:42:37 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
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!!
But it’s apparently totally OK for wanna-be brownshirts to force Brandon Eich out of his job because of his religious belief. No violence, but also no employment for believers.
Clown has no problems supporting terrorists in Syria that are killing Christians.
But being fired for your faith is A-OK
That’s law enforcement, not violence. BO is the king because he won two elections, so he has the right to release his goons on all who resist. < / sarcasm >
“Nobody should have to fear for their safety when they go to pray.”
In the case of Muslim terrorists, his comments mean they should not be afraid when they prey.
Then why is the DOJ suing the Little Sisters of the Poor?
My thoughts exactly.
All of the liberal apes on my local newspaper website are saying Miller’s act was totally consistent with - and representative of - mainstream conservatism and Republicanism.
The Left has demonized Tea Party conservatives as racist, homophobic, bigoted miscreants (like they always do - define others so that no one will want to listen to them, associate with them or learn anything about them). Sort of like Rush asking a caller who had suddenly found out he wasn't a [fill in a Leftist slur] if they had ever listened to the show before [and of course they hadn't, just relied on others' characterization]. Too many pride themselves in not having listened to, read or researched someone whom they will readily and viciously attack on someone else's word.
“Except Christians And Jews”??????????????????
When the Idiot in Chief says things like this: “We’ve got to stand united against this kind of terrible violence that has no place in our society,”
Is he speaking a platitude, which he does often, or does he mean to imply the GOP supports this violence?
"The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution."
Source ".........The title of Hillarys thesis was There Is Only the Fight: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model. In this title she had singled out the single most important Alinsky contribution to the radical cause - his embrace of political nihilism. An SDS radical once wrote, The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution. In other words the cause - whether inner city blacks or women - is never the real cause, but only an occasion to advance the real cause which is the accumulation of power to make the revolution. That was the all consuming focus of Alinsky and his radicals.."
And he is correct in what he SAYS. What he MEANS is "The next time my Islamic homies blow something up and kill a bunch of Americans, don't start killing 'em back, even though their faith is a socio-political system which only masquerades as a religion".
This is slightly off-topic, but can anyone point me to a website that compiles statistics on crimes committed against Christian churches and organizations?
MSM suddenly loses interest.
If you want worldwide stats, look up Voice of the Martyrs or Walid Shoebat’s site.
