Posted on 06/19/2013 9:38:08 PM PDT by TexGrill
The Catholic media is up in arms over comments President Obama made during a speech while in Northern Ireland for the G8 summit. Obama made what is described as an alarming call for an end to Catholic education, in spite of the fact that it is considered a critical component of the Church.
In front of an audience of about 2,000 young people, including many Catholics, Obama claimed that Catholic education divides people and blocks peace, according to the Scottish Catholic Observer.
If towns remain dividedif Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we cant see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to hardenthat too encourages division and discourages cooperation, Obama said.

“if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs”
Meaning the government should regulate who worships what where??? Or give the buildings to Muslims because... well I just want to...
What about Quaker schools, like the one his daughters attend?
Obama is divisive.
Do Muslims have elementary schools for general academic education as well as religious instruction?
In a free country the people are responsible to educate their own children in the way they see as right.
So you will see catholic schools, and protestant schools of various flavors, and secular schools of all kinds, and the craziest thing is that people decide where to send their kids themselves. Some people don’t even send their kids to any school, they educate them themselves right there at home.
Thats what happens in a free country.
Obama is divisive.
Yep, it’s called ‘Divide and Conquer’.
I’m glad to see him offend the Catholics in the UK and hope it offends the Catholics and other Christians everywhere. Maybe it will wake up some of those who supported him. They need a slap up side the head.
Is there nothing this turd won’t leave alone?

Hey, he's just supporting his sharia bros.
Hussein wants only Muslim/Islam schools with a side order of Communism taught. There are over 300 million people in this country and no one can pitch Hussein into Hades and bind him for a thousand years. Oops, that is what happens to Satan - I got them mixed up (I really didn’t - he is one and the same as Satan).
... he is one and the same as Satan).
Yes he is.
In the spirit of togetherness, I suppose Obama sends his kids to public schools in DC, right?
A true story with about a dozen witnesses was told to me this past week at a funeral. A class trip was taken to the White House a year ago and Obama was meeting with kids 11 and 12 years old. Apparently with teachers and parents out of the room...Obama was doing nothing but faith bashing and literally telling the kids that following an organized religion or faith is going to vanish in this country and that he needed their help in changing the future and the landscape forever without religion involved at all in this nation.
Let me tell you...the people who shared this story with me are teachers at a Blue Ribbon Catholic school...known them my entire life...had no reason to tell this story to me out of the blue other than the fact that we hadn’t physically seen each other in quite some time and the topic had switched to politics.
Obama is a lunatic who walks in the steps of Marx, Mao, and Hitler. THAT IS A FACT.
I’m shocked! How could Barry such mean and nasty things about Islam.
