Obama never stops when he decides he is on a bender. This time he has chosen to use the sacred holiday Easter to slam on the countries Christian population. His thinly veiled disgust for any religion other than his Muslim brethren is apparent when he tries to make reasons up why he doesn’t like being a Christian.
What better opportunity than Easter Sunday, yes? Despicable:
President Obama dished out some comprehensive criticism aimed at Christians when he addressed a group attending an Easter breakfast at the White House.
“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I’m supposed to love, and I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned,” Obama said to the room of Christian leaders.
“But that’s a topic for another day,” he conveniently added.
Many saw Obama’s ill-timed chastising as reminiscent of his comparing the Christian crusades to Islamic extremism at the National Prayer Breakfast.
“And lest 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 then.

Vice President Joe Biden opened the program with a quote from Pope Francis’ Easter message about “entering into mystery.”
The President, who was introduced by Biden as someone who “transforms hope into possibility and possibility into opportunities,” began his remarks with a thanks “for this day the Lord has made.” Noting Holy Week, Obama admitted “I am no preacher” before referring to Easter as a source of spiritual inspiration.
“For me, the celebration of Easter puts our earthly concerns into perspective,” the Commander in Chief explained. “With humility and with awe, we give thanks to the extraordinary sacrifice of Jesus Christ, our savior. We reflect on the brutal pain that He suffered, the scorn that He absorbed, the sins that He bore, this extraordinary gift of salvation that He gave us. And we try, as best we can, to comprehend the darkness that He endured so that we might receive God’s light.”
Furthermore, President Obama noted “the story didn’t end on [Good] Friday.”
“The story keeps going,” he said. “On Sunday comes the glorious Resurrection of our Savior.”
After quoting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., President Obama said that Easter was both a beacon of hope and a reminder of spiritual responsibility.
“Easter is our affirmation that there are better days ahead — and also a reminder that it is on us, the living, to make them so,” he said.
Obama concluded his speech by introducing Rev. Dr. Amy Butler to offer the opening prayer. Following the prayer breakfast, President Obama and Vice President Biden will travel to Howard University to host a meeting about how climate change can damage public health.
Of course, what would a day without politics, hate and lies be like?
