Skip to comments.An "Amen" from a Priest for the President
Posted on 02/06/2015 4:16:44 PM PST by EveningStar
So President Obama is evidently taking a ration of right-wing blow back for comments at today's National Prayer Breakfast comparing the heinous actions of ISIS to the heinous actions of the Crusades. "Critics Pounce" read one headline. "Outrage" read another
Here's what's outrageous: Christians who don't know their own history. Like the story of the Cathars -- a Christian sect deemed heretical in the 13th century and savagely butchered by Christian Crusaders in France.

The lunatics have had a huge voice in the Episcopal Church for decades. It's one of the reasons why I'm a former Episcopalian.
That pretty much explains why I don't feel a need to read this.....swill.

Huff-Poo should last forever as an example of what happens to you when you pleasure yourself too often.
Christian jihad has been under control for 500 years. How about Muslim jihad?
I no longer consider Episcopalian priests to be authorities on Christianity.
I know I’m painting with a broad brush, but..
Excerpt: Unlike the Christian Bible, which is the product of an ongoing spiritual inspiration of humans existing in time, the Koran is the pre-existing, uncreated, eternal word of Allah, dictated to Mohammed. It is perfect as written, just as the life and sayings of Mohammed provide the perfect, timeless guide for every dimension of life, including law, economics, politics, and family life. The role of interpretive exegesis or allegory in traditional Islam, then, is vastly less significant than it has been in Christianity. Any Muslim today who desires to reinterpret, say, jihad, or relations with non-Muslims, or illiberal sharia law, will thus find it difficult, if not impossible, to change the plain meaning of the scriptures as understood consistently by Muslims for 14 centuries.
Sorry, Susie, no such entity exists.
This idiot assumes Obama’s critics don’t know history. What an arrogant b@@ch.
You know, eveningstar, as long as it keeps her sober and off the roads let her opine.
(Cheap shot and I know it’s not the same woman but I couldn’t resist)
This moronic ‘priest’ is missing the point entirely.
I have not heard anyone deny that atrocities, even widespread atrocities, have been committed in the name of Christinity in the past. For the most part, the FAR distant past.
I have heard, and so have many others, Barack Obama DENY that Muslims are committing atrocities TODAY, in the modern world, in the present, in the name of Islam. He claims that these people are not REAL Muslims.
That he fails to give that same benefit of the doubt to Christianity says a lot about his character. That an alleged Cristian priest would defend him in his hypocrisy says a lot about the quality of today’s alleged Christian priests.
1. Huffington Post
1. its a lady named SUSAN who thinks she is a “priest”
2. and an “activist”
sorry, but that’s 3 for 3
why I won’t waste any time reading this one.
This critter ain’t no priest.
I must concur, having raised up my daughters in the Episcopalchurch. We were part of the Chicago Diocese and in the early 90’s, we got a new bishop. The man ultimately became the presiding bishopbut, seeing the handwriting on the wall, I had taken my leave, ultimately ending up with Assemblies of God. My girls were so saddened when they saw what was happening to their church.
Someone needs to ask Susan Russell: if you are so shocked about the Catholic Church’s behavior towards the Cathars, why aren’t you shocked by what Isis is doing?
Jim Crow was engineered by and was for the benefit of the Democrat Party.
Christianity didn’t give us slavery, but it did give us emancipation , see Wilberforce and Harriet Beecher Stowe.
How many Moslem countries continue to allow it?
When you have to reach back 800 years, you’re grasping at straws.
“Reverend” Suzie from Pasadena. LOL! She is probably running one of those “big box churches.” When I was a kid, church was something people took seriously.
800 years ago-—these people are insane.
