To me, Islam is just as ridiculous and any other religion. To each their own.
I view ISIS as being as much Islamic and I view Westboro Baptist being as much Christian.
Granted, they are apples and poisoned oranges. Not the same at all except they both use "religion," to validate their despicable actions.
I wonder how many people have died in the name of these "peaceful," religions. Some say religion is the "opiate of the masses." I consider them to be cancers.

I'll go along with whatever religious or political movement which says 'live and let live', though the 'do unto others...' is excellent as well.
His point was that Muslims wouldn't kill Muslims based on their religion if they believed the same thing.
ISIS claims to be Islamic but their beliefs are obviously warped outside of normalcy for the religion. The religion has 1.6 billion members and clearly they're not all following the same radical agenda of ISIS. Obama is just pointing that out. Were his comments precise? Maybe not, but describing it in the necessary detail to be precise would likely have bored most viewers and would have lost their attention.
