President Barack Obama wants Christians to know Islam is not the only religion that has inspired violence and terror.
"Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the crusades and the inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ," Obama said Wednesday. "And in our home country, slavery, and Jim Crow, all too often was justified in the name of Christ."
Obama made the comments while giving a major speech on religion at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington. Citing Islamic, Jewish, and Christian scripture, Obama touted his own faith.
"This prayer tradition has brought us together, giving us the opportunity to come together in humility before the Almighty and to be reminded of what it is that we share as children of God. And certainly for me this is always a chance to reflect on my own faith journey," he said. "No matter the challenge He has been there for all of us. He certainly strengthened me through the power of his spirit."

This MUSLIM just needs to STFU.
I fear we are being forced to do them again.
So, we as Christians cannot condemn Islamic evil, because centuries ago our ancestors were extremists? What exactly is the POTUS trying to say?
if i were in the room, i would have stood up and loudly told him to F* OFF
President Obama sure acts like someone who is being blackmailed by our enemies. Say, after Benghazi.
Obama is not believable when he speaks of his faith.
He said that he was attracted to Christianity by tenets of Christianity such as that we are our brothers keeper and our sisters keeper.
For Obama to cite a completely mangled and misinterpreted version of a Bible story as his inspiration for his Christian faith, shows just how little he knows about the Bible and Christianity.
Yet he has never been called out on this.
Yes they did commit these things...hundreds of years ago...not YESTERDAY !!!
This mulatto muslim needs to end up IN Gotmo as a Spandau type of establishment.
Yup, I distinctly remember all ‘em Swatiska Boys and their Stalinist buddys dressed up in their choir robes, singing “Onward Christian Soldiers”! /s
And every single kid under the age of thirty shall believe every word that proceedeth from the mouth of Their Lord And Savior, teh Obama, The Messiah, The Won, lest they be shamed as racist and white.
Most of us Americans were taught at an early age that two wrongs don’t make a right. Apparently he wasn’t.
Yes he is drawing an equivalence between Muslim terror today, and what happened in medieval Europe. That’s exactly what he is saying. And he is saying we can’t condemn Muslim terror because of what happened in medieval Europe centuries ago.
The most sophomoric argument. High school morons always say this. He is one despicable creature.
Obama the D-bag just repeats the same false narrative and talking points and manufactured history about the Crusades and Inquisition.
People have committed far far worse deeds in the name of government.
That may be, but unlike Mohammed as recorded in the koran and hadiths, Jesus Christ as recorded in the New Testament never told anyone to do such things.
And certainly for me [Obama] this is always a chance to reflect on my own faith journey,” he said.
If he’s talking about a ‘Christian’ faith journey, the blasphemer hasn’t passed “go” yet.
