    Are there "radical Christians" out there beheading non Christians today?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Obama did not make it a religious conflict and neither did he criticize a religion.

    While I recognize I may be somewhat partial, your case is very weak on those points.

    Had Obama been critical of Jews on their "high horse" would that have made any difference to you?

    No, because he wasn't critical of any religion. He wasn't critical of Christians, he wasn't critical of Muslims, he wasn't critical of Jews. He was critical of evil people who commit their evil acts under the guise of religion, even if their actions in no way are supported by the religion they claim to follow.

    This isn't hard to understand.

    What makes Obama qualified to say what is and isn't supported by Islam?

    Aside from the fact he's the President so he'll have more than enough people around who are experts in anything he wants to know, the fact that Muslims all over the world have denounced the actions of ISIS would be a good start.

    So Barrack Obama came out strongly against generalized evildoers. I can see why you voted for a man of such obvious insight.
