Obama's Religious Cant

Obama announced an initiative to defeat the Islamic State terrorist group. Obama in his speech said “No religion condones the killing of innocents.” To which a lot of historians of religion would reply: “What?” The Crusades happened, so did the Inquisition and innumerable other wars and witch-hunts.

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘I have noted what Amalek did to Israel in opposing them on the way when they came up out of Egypt. Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’” 1 Samuel 15:2–3
