President Obama dished out some comprehensive criticism aimed at Christians when he addressed a group attending an Easter breakfast at the White House.
Pres Obama says he gets concerned about some Christians making less than loving expressions – “but that’s a topic for another day.”

“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I’m supposed to love, and I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned,” Obama said to the room of Christian leaders.
“But that’s a topic for another day,” he conveniently added.
Many saw Obama’s ill-timed chastising as reminiscent of his comparing the Christian crusades to Islamic extremism at the National Prayer Breakfast.
“And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” Obama said then.
Apparently, the president doesn’t hold his own political base – like the thousands of uber-left gay rights activists who bullied a Christian family into closing their pizza business following an onslaught of online threats – to the same standards as regular, God-fearing Americans.
Folks on Twitter haven’t forgotten any of his religious taunts and weren’t particularly inclined to wait for “another day” to address his Easter jab.

And then there’s that pesky reality that Tweeters keep bring up…
Pres. Obama did not mention the Kenya university attacks in his remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast. Do YOU think he should have?

@AmericaNewsroom He should have, but based on his passed performance I don’t think he cares much for the plight of Christians.
