Skip to comments.Obama: ‘Future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam’

Twitchy headline says it all.
Context provided by Erick Erickson at Red State:
In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly today the President of the United States declared that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Already, the media and the left are in full denial, probably based on their general lack of understanding of theology. This would have been a gaffe had Mitt Romney said it. But with Barack Obama, hes just speaking bold truths. His bold truth declares that the future does not belong to practicing Christians.
Pay careful attention to what he says:
"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit. Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support."
Now, thats the full paragraph so no one can claim I took him out of context.
But consider this.
It is an orthodox Christian belief that Mohammed is not a prophet. Actual Christians, as opposed to many of the supposed Christians put up by the mainstream media, believe that Christ is the only way to salvation. Believing that is slandering Mohammed. Thats just a fact. If you dont believe me, you go into the MIddle East and proclaim Christ is the way, the truth, and the life and see what happens to your life.
Tell that to the Soccer Hooligans in the English Defense League, that will go over like a loud Fart in Church.
Exactly how I read it.
Mohammed was an illiterate pedophile. Not slander, just the truth.
Maybe so! But Glenn Beck isn’t going to come into your home, rape your wife and daughters, sodimize you and then behead you! Let’s keep who the enemy is in perspective.
I think this shows how ignorant he is of the religion he claims to profess.
I don’t think he’s a Muslim OR a Christian. I don’t think he has spent 1 minute in his whole life thinking about any spiratual matters except in the context of how a given religion could further his ambitions.
How do you slander a raping, murdering, thieving, demon-possessed pedophile?
MOHAMMED WAS A CHILD RAPIST!!!
It isn't slander if it's true.
Nice how this closet Muslim equates Christianity with murderous Islam. How many mosques have Christians burned?
0bama came out fully against the First Amendment and therefore the Bill of Rights.
It’s either us or them.
We had an author on our radio program who has researched and co-written a book about Obama....she says he’s an Atheist
The libs goe nuts, or I should say nutter, when you bring up Chamberlain as an example of liberal appeasement of the enemy.
Exactly. Mohammad is prophet only to Muslims. All of this blather is to change the subject, which should be, why are Muslims killing and destroying in the name of their religion, and what kind of a religion is THAT??
This is lecturing Muslims and non-Muslims alike, as if O is god and is above it all looking down on people.
The not-so-subtle message, however, is about presenting Muslims as victims of religious bigotry and intolerance. When no religion is as intolerant and bigoted as THEIRS.
Yep, you really can’t have an “and” situation with Christianity and Islam involved.
It does come down to an “or”, or for the nerdier amongst us, an “xor”.
