    What about atheists, agnostics, Jews, Hindus, and other religions? Are they involved in this as well or is it just between Muslims and Christians?

    In any case Obama was able to give the Islamists further justification for more attacks.
    Pres. Obama didn't make this a Holy War. The radical terrorist/Muslim extremist did that. Now, if Pres. Obama had made an impassioned plea to all Christians to take up arms against Muslims who would use their religion to cause violence and mayhem while also seeking an endorsement from the Pope, then I could accept your claim. Since neither has happened...

If you make a presentation that leaves out key facts, it becomes a lie.
    No dishonesty was made on my part concerning post #466 because the actions of ISIL as Muslim terrorist extremist is already well understood and well documented. Furthermore, we already know they're committing murder and other atrocities in the name of their religion. No need to expand on that. In addition, since the focus of this thread seems to be whether or not the President was justified in using the Crusades as an example of people using their religious faith as justification to do evil, I think my post was valid.

    The dishonesty comes when one goes on about the Crusades and fails--refuses?--to mention Muslim aggression that took place prior to and during the same period.

    No, it's not a false narrative. He lied. Bald face lied. And the law hasn't been as bad as even I thought. The lie was that ACA was terrible.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Are you homophobic, would it really disturb you if Jesus was gay. Where's the issue here?

    When he invoked the Crusades, Jim Crow, Slavery and High Horses, it was about Christians and Christianity.

    There was no need to go there at all, especially when this is a guy or cannot mention Islam or terrorism in the same sentence.

    Do you not feel that terrorists will take heart in his criticism of Christians, a group they are systematically destroying? Will Jews be next?

    The leftist lies continue, ignoring every bit of historical evidence. Which came first, the lie or the leftist?
