Barack Obama Apologizes For Burning Korans But Not For Burning Bibles?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

It has become exceedingly clear that Barack Obama does not believe that all religions should be treated equally.  In recent days Barack Obama has gone to great lengths to apologize for the “inadvertent” burning of Korans by U.S. military forces in Afghanistan.  In fact, Obama has given his word that the United States will be “holding accountable those responsible” for the burning of the Korans.  But when the U.S. military purposely burned Bibles in Afghanistan a few years ago, there was never any apology from Barack Obama.  Christian groups all over the U.S. expressed great outrage but there was dead silence from Obama.  So why the double standard?  Do Muslims get an apology because they are willing to become violent over the burning of a Koran?  Does Barack Obama consider a Koran to be more valuable than a Bible?  Exactly what in the world is going on here?


Barack Obama sent Afghan President Hamid Karzai a three page letter on Thursday apologizing for the burning of Korans at a NATO air base in Bagram.  In the letter, Obama specifically promised that those “responsible” would be punished….

“The error was inadvertent; I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible.”

Well, the truth is that the soldiers that dumped the Korans into the incinerator were just following orders.

So who is going to be held responsible?

Their superior officers?

Someone higher up in the chain of command?

Barack Obama is sitting in the chair of the Commander in Chief.

Doesn’t the buck stop with him?

Of course we all know that some poor scapegoat will be found.  That is the way these kinds of things always work.

Ever since news of this Koran burning got out, Afghanistan has been in a constant state of turmoil.  Both Afghans and U.S. soldiers have been killed in the wild violence that has erupted.  The following is from a Reuters article….

The Koran burnings ignited anti-Western fury. Thousands have taken to the streets and at least 27 people have been killed in the protests. Two American soldiers were shot to death on Thursday by an Afghan national army soldier who joined the rallies.

Even Afghan police officers and Afghan soldiers have joined in the anti-American protests.  The following example is from the New York Times….

Mohammed Anwar, an off-duty police officer, had joined the protesters on Friday and seemed barely able to contain his fury. “I will take revenge from the infidels for what they did to our Holy Koran, and I will kill them whenever I get the chance,” he said as he walked with crowd of protesters wielding rocks and sticks. “I don’t care about the job I have.”

This is a story that is not going to die any time soon, and Barack Obama will continue to ensure the Afghan people that nothing like this will ever happen again.

But there was never a single word of apology from Obama for the deliberate burning of Christian Bibles by U.S. forces in Afghanistan that happened just a few years ago.

Apparently the burning of Bibles is not a problem for the Obama administration.

Many of you may not have heard about that incident.  The following is how a CNN article back in 2009 described what happened….

Military personnel threw away, and ultimately burned, confiscated Bibles that were printed in the two most common Afghan languages amid concern they would be used to try to convert Afghans, a Defense Department spokesman said Tuesday.

You can view a video news report about this incident right here.

There was no letter of apology when Christian groups expressed anger about this.

So why does the Koran get treated with far more respect by the U.S. government than the Bible does?

But this is far from the only time that Barack Obama has given Islam a tremendous amount of respect while showing tremendous disdain for Christianity.

The following are 10 quotes from Barack Obama that show the incredible admiration that he has regularly expressed for the religion of Islam….

#1 “Islam has always been part of America”

#2 “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”

#3 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”

#4 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

#5 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

#6 “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”

#7 “As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith.”

#8 “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

#9 “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

#10 “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

Now, compare those quotes to these 10 quotes from Barack Obama about Christianity….

#1 “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

#2 “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

#3 “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy?  Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination?  Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”

#4 “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”

#5 “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”

#6 From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”

#7 “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell.  I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity.  That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”

#8 “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”

#9 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”

#10 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

Do you notice a difference?

In the end, Barack Obama can believe whatever he wants to believe.

Everyone gets to make a choice.

But the American people should take note of how he regularly goes out of his way to treat Islam with the utmost respect while not doing the same for Christianity.

And as I have written about previously, the Christian faith is under assault in America like never before.

In our television shows and in our movies, Bible-believing Christians are almost never portrayed as the heroes.  Instead, they are almost always portrayed as villains or as crazy people.

It has become fashionable to treat Bible-believing Christians with blatant disrespect and we have been taught that we must push all expressions of the Christian faith out of public life.

If you are a public school student and you try to talk about Jesus with your fellow classmates there is a good chance that you will be suspended from school.

If you want to go out on a public sidewalk and discuss your faith with others, there is a good chance that you will be arrested.

If you are anti-abortion, if you have “radical theology” or if you are against “the New World Order”, there is the possibility that you will be labeled as a “potential terrorist” by the Department of Homeland Security.

Can you see where all of this is headed?

If Barack Obama is going to apologize for burning Korans then he should also apologize for burning Bibles.

But that is not the way that Barack Obama does things and that is not the way that the U.S. government has done things for a very long time.

If you are a Bible-believing Christian, you need to start preparing for dark times because persecution is coming.  The world system that we live in does not like you, and the leap from blatant disrespect to violent repression is not as far as you might think.

    Barack Obama’s detractors will certainly use this as proof that he is really a Muslim. He apologizes for soldiers burning the Koran, but does nothing about Bible burning.

    Obama says he’s a Christian. He attends a Christian church. So, shouldn’t he take a stand against anyone burning the Bible? Does he go home after the church service, kneel on his prayer rug and face Mecca? Who am I to know?

    The burning of any holy text, whether it’s the Bible, the Koran or the Torah, or any other, is wrong.

    • Colin

      He has only attended a Christian church since becoming president.

      Reverend Wright was his pastor leading up to his nomination.

      ” But there were also false teachers among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction”. 2 Peter 2:1…… Being in church doesn’t make one a Christian anymore than being in an oven makes one a biscuit.

    • jrmartin

      As a matter of fact Obama regularly visits and prays at a local mozque. Pictures are posted of him doing this AFTER attending a prayer breakfast

    Great observations. Thank you for writing this.

  • mondobeyondo

    #10 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

    This in direct contradiction to the New Testament of the Bible, which says that Jesus Christ is the only way to get to heaven. If President Obama is a true Christian, he would know this.

    Yes, there is a higher power. But Christianity is unique, in that it is the ONLY religion where God sacrificed His only-begotten Son, in order to save humanity from eternity in hell. Not going to get too deep here, but basically, we are all sinners, and have fallen short of the glory of God. The wages of sin is (eternal) death. Jesus paid that price of our sins on Calvary, and we are saved from eternal death because of it.

    Maybe Obama is just trying to be politically correct though. He might even get some atheist votes in the upcoming election!

      Then Christie makes laws imposing on your freedom and raises your taxes.

  • BenjiK

    The fundamental difference between Islam and Christianity is Muslims believe in sacrificing their sons to kill and die for God while Christians believe God sacrificed His son to die for us.

    Michael, I really appreciate your censorship regarding profanity, however, regarding the subject of the article and current events, I really hope this is starting to PISS PEOPLE OFF. While roughly 85% of Americans still claim a religious denomination, I have been and will continue to be an advocate of peaceful religions uniting against an increasingly secular world.

      #1 “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

      That is one statement that Obama was correct about! He hit it on the nail!

  • jaxon64


    I was going to type ” unbelievable” but with a President apologizing to the people who had just murdered 2 Americans who were there as teachers, nothing is nreally unbelievable anymore. I guess it’s official now- the Constitution is dead. Which brings up the question- What is the law of the land now? or are we just going to continue to sink further into lawlessness????

    PS: It’s ironic that the victim was one of the obnoxious, hate-filled, hypocrtical atheists. It’s not enough for them to put their faith in science, Darwin and the belief that there is no God- they must mock and assault other’s beliefs and faiths. The atheists don’t even see the hypocrisy in their efforts to outlaw practice of faith in any public setting yet they blatantly display their beliefs every chance they get. Most of it just mocking and ridiculing really- after all, how can one defend the supposition against the most basic law of physics with “everything came from nothing and the fact that it has purpose and design is just a fluke of randomness of nothingness. In the end, they can’t prove a negative so it’s just easier to be hostile.

    Sorry to get off topic Michael, but I figured while we were on the topic of tolerance for Islam vs intolerance for Christianity that the God-haters that visit this website might need to be aware that the burgeoning Muslim population will not be as tolerant and loving as Christians are to those who mock, ridicule and blaspheme. I have a feeling that they are not going to be praying for those who hate them like us Christians do…….

    • WM

      jaxon64: Great comments. You made a good point regarding islamic tolerance for atheists. Athiests are considered infidels to a muslim, and they follow their religion obediently, then the “infidels” will have to be either converted or killed.

      In the edn, atheists simply don’t want God, and don’t want to accept his authority and accept the fact that judgement is coming. They will deny it all day long, and try to “prove” there is no God, and ask us to present proof after proof after proof after proof……..that God exists. I have come to the conclusion that you can talk till your blue in the face with an atheist, trying to reason with them and present all the logical explainations, archeological, historical, prohetic validations that the Bible has to offer, but,they will not be convinced. It is by the Spirit of the Lord working with the preaching of the Law ( moral law) of God, that I beleieve is the only way they will be convinced/converted.

      The root issue is that they do not want God, and they want to criticize Jews and Christians for believing in the God of the Bible. It is a spiritual battle indeed. Look anywhere in the world where sharia law is in effect, and see how many atheists living there are outspoken and as arrogant as they are here in the good old US of A. If they were to speak out there as they do here, they will be imprisoned, tortured, or murdered.

      Most atheists do not have any compassion for Christians, because we tell them the Truth and deep inside they know it and reject it. They think we are shoving the Truth down their throats, when really all we are doing is trying to reason with them and give them the message that will save them from a Holy God and eternity in Hell.

        you believe in god because you fear death

        the main reason so many Christians and Jews are criticized is because you are trying to impose your religious beliefs on everyone else

    WHO will be punished and under WHAT penal code? What of the thousands of Christin PEOPLE that are beheaded by Islamists every year? WHAT of the Churches burned by them? It is freedom of speech to burn ANY book, even the bible.

    This sorry excuse of a president is such a fake and an embarassment for the entire world to see. He physically makes me sick, to apologize for a book, but say nothing of the lives lost or taken by this regime is beyond abhorent. I am truly at a loss for words!

      Didn’t Muslims in Iraq burn churches with people inside them?

      Saying obama is a Muslim drives his supporters bonkers because they know it’s true.

      • xander cross

        And what is your evidence to prove it? Was George Bush a muslim when he apologize to the saudis for the burning of the koran? How about Do you apologize for the millions of muslims that have been killed by U.S. forces since the war in Iraq begain?

    Our president should defend our soldiers and the country that he leads. He should not apologize for something that was intended to protect our soldiers who, by the way, are protecting Afghan citizens everyday. I am sickened by this president. He does not understand the Bible, even though he may quote scripture, he is not a Christian. If he were, he would not be ashamed by any passage in the Bible. He is not working in the true interests of the United States Of America. He is not American so why should he? I am not ashamed to admit that I am a Christian and I Love the Lord Jesus Christ. I will fight to my death for my Lord and savior. Will you?

  • Gary2

    See how extreme religious folk in this case muslim are?? Who cares about burning a book?? its a book-get a life.

    • mondobeyondo

      There are extremists in every religion, even among Christians. Remember that pastor a year or so ago, who threatened to hold a “Koran burning” at his church in Florida?

      The Muslims have the Christians beat in the extremism department though. Can’t say I’m willing to blow myself up in a crowded supermarket to advance a religious agenda.



    More Obomber is a secret muslim crap even though he has killed more muslims in the arab/muslim world than Bush ever did. This article is a complete disgrace and is downright laughable in the extreme.

    1. Barack Obomber’s “apology” was a cynical, phony, political miscalculation.

    2. Obomber apologizes for burning books but he never apologizes for the millions of people, muslims, arabs, amerikans, etc. slaughtered for his phony oil wars and wars of aggression and empire. But don’t worry about that, being a rightwinger Michael your mind is geared for nothing but war.

    3. Eye-of-newt Gingrinch’s “outrage” over said “apology” is a cynical, phony, political miscalculation. He, like you, loves war, killing, death, and destruction. Par for the course for the republican wing of the war party.

    4. Your faux news war on christianity is a cynical, phony political miscalculation, for you rightwingers love playing the victim card. You people constantly whine before the media about being helpless victims always under attack with a seige mentality as if everyone is out to get you while at the same time you play the john wayne tough guy role about being the world’s policeman, (provided someone else takes the risks and gets killed) chestthumping for war against anyone or anything that disagrees with you. Which is it? Braveheart or Coward?

    5. I am not in favor of burning any books, religious or otherwise. But the fact remains: Religion is not under a state of seige, it’s you rightwingers who are in such a hurry to get to your “heaven” you have no conscience and will destroy the world and everyone in it in order to get there.


    • justadad

      A few corrections:
      1. Barack Obomber’s ELECTION was a cynical, phony, political miscalculation.Therfore anything he does in the office follows.(we agree on this one, I just wanted to expand it for clarification.)
      2.Michael has not ever justified war for the reasons you cite (neither have conservatives.)
      3. See no. 2. Michael has never expressed a love for war.
      4.The history of mankind is a history of the great war of good versus evil. It is a continuation of the rebellion in Heaven carried to earth. As Christ represents the Ultimate Good, there is no faux report, Michael is simply pointing out the modern expressions of this battle. That you are ignorant to it does not prove that it does not exist.
      5. You say religion is not under a state of seige and then you use capital leters to attack it as insane and irrational. You have contradicted yourself .
      Also, No. 5, Shiite Islam, not Christianity, is in favor of world destroying chaos to introduce the 12th Imam (their messiah) and the Iranian NutJob clearly expresses this every chance he gets.
      Christians certainly want to be delivered from this present age but most Christians want God to rescue all those who do not know Him, including you, by His great long suffering mercy.
      Maranatha Lord Jesus



        What’s the matter, Michael can’t speak for himself and needs you to hide behind? You are completely clueless as to what really goes on in the political and relgious realm. I shall break it down for you:

        1. We don’t disagree with no. 1. I did not vote for Obomber in 2008 and of course won’t vote for him in 2012. If you don’t know that then you have not read much of what I post here. No disagreement there.

        2. Where have you been for the last 50 plus years? Rightwingers in the democrat and republican wings of the war party have always justified war against anyone who either disagrees with them; if their religion and culture are different, or they have resources that amerikan narcissists claim “are theirs for the taking”. And who said anything in the U.S. Constitution, which is the law of the land I might add, that says exporting amerikan theocracy (tyranny disguised as democracy) has any legal or moral justification? Why the rightwing eggheads in the war party, both republican and democrat rightwingers who believe that the asylum states government is responsible for every living breathing creature on earth and has dominion over anything that moves.

        3. As noted in previous articles he has written, Michael is trying to reignite the cold war with Russia and claims that China is an enemy, although the state of California would disagree with the latter notion seeing as how they are asking the Red Communist Chinese to fix amerikan roads and bridges. Anyone heading in the direction of cold then hot war loves war and conflict. Putin is no saint but I don’t recall him encircling amerika with bases and missile “offense shield” capabilities

        4. Ah, the old good vs evil mantra. And let me guess. Since you may hold either an amerikan birth certificate, a blue passport or both, that automatically makes you the good guy and everyone else is evil. Try upping the ante at least to fifth grade level.

        5. Religion is not under seige. What people like me and increasingly many others are sick of is religious fanatics trying to foist their foolishness on everyone else. I am more than happy to leave you religious zealots to your own devices. It makes me sick that all zealots are trying to force the public square to forcefeed from their trough of lunacy. Schools are not places of worship, they are places to learn academics and everyday skills to live and survive and thrive. You wanna pray, go to church, mosque, synagogue, etc.

        And you have finally proved my point:


        • justadad

          Your arguments are full of distorted unprovable assumptions.
          Rightwing religious tyrannical conservative war party theocracy? This is probably how King George described George Washington and the Declaration of Independence.

        • r.bitting

          Reed Richards… By stating that religion is lunacy, you clearly are stating that you do not believe in a creator. In effect then, you believe that something came from nothing ( an effect without a cause ), which is lunacy on steroids, and the fact that almost 90% of the worlds population believes in a creator is’nt helping your case either. If you have some evidence to the contrary, then please present it. If not, then all you have is your opinion, which, if not based upon evidence and at least some measure of reason, is not very credible. Your mistake is the assumption that the believer, be it muslim, christian, jew, hindu or other bases their belief entirely on blind faith, and that evidence and reason have no role in their conclusion that a creator God exists. Better think again Sir. I can easily produce plenty of evidence for the existence of God, and for the support of the ressurrection of Christ as well. But that will all be pointless babble if you can just prove me wrong with your evidence that there can be no God to begin with because everything came into being…… HOW? ( Your answer here ).

            You’re like a blind man who refuses to acknowledge the existence of the Sun. You can feel its warm and are nourished by the plants it grows but you argue that because you can’t see it, it does not exist.

      What is laughable is your ridiculous presumption that O can’t be a Muslim because he has killed so many arab/muslims.
      Was Saddam Hussein not a Muslim then because he killed so many tens of thousands of muslims? Are the Turks/ottomans not muslims because they warred with and slaughtered so many Persians? Which ones are muslims and which not? The sunnis, kill shiites and Kurds….the Arabs believe they are all whack…the 12th Imam crowd want to start a world war so their sect can be proven right. Heck, I’ve studied it closely through their history, ideology and theocratic differences and I still can’t always tell where the allegiances of the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Quada, Hezzbollah, Hamas or the Taliban lie…to assume that O can’t have a warm spot for the particular beliefs of his father, or his step-father, or the Indonesian school that he studied Islam in during his formative years–to assume that he ISN’t a muslim is the insane, irrational thinking that I see going on…

      I’ll make my judgements by actions, deeds and his history ( although he has also said plenty of things that no christian follower of Jesus Christ would ever say.)

    As a Muslim, I come to this site regularly, and I do not wish to see any religious book destroyed. Presidents are puppets not anyones religious leader. I know about the Quran burnings. All I can say is thats on them. They want division. So were busy fighting each other. You know, Michael, in a economic collapse people need to help one another. Both of our religions are under attack. I remember W. saying his rhetoric. Making money is not all these people are good at, they’re skilled at division also… I hope people remember that.



      You picked the wrong asylum state to try to reconcile differences. The asylum’s population is gripped with fear, fear of the “other” and the current whipping boy at present are Muslims and the Islamic faith. Native Americans, blacks, women, italians, immigrants of hispanic/Mexican origin, they can all tell you what it is like to be in the crosshairs of a bigoted population that is so narcissistic in nature that even when their hypocrisies are pointed out to them, they simply deny it and claim that you are anti-amerikan.

      Your best option, if you have not already done so, leave the asylum states. You don’t want to be here when its economy totally collapses………….

    Love ’em or hate ’em, you gotta give the Muslims respect. Why? Because if you don’t, they’re gonna come and do a number on you. And everyone around you.

    Look, I hate “terrorism” as much as everyone else, but you have to admit, nobody gets away with defaming or angering Muslims. There is a price to be paid, and Obama is making nice to the Muslims because he doesn’t care to have more guff come down the pipe from them than we’re already getting.

    Christians on the other hand, just harumph when they’re insulted. Maybe if they get really mad they’ll vote for a Republican. Big hairy deal.

    The reason is simple: Christians are paper tigers. Nobody is scared of them anymore. Do whatever you will, Christians will just mumble and do nothing.

    Until that changes, nothing else will change either.

    • jaxon64

      Christians aren’t paper tigers or sissies– the difference is that Christian faith is about love , yes, even loving and praying for your enemies. On the other hand the Koran quite clearly instructs that EVERYONE should convert or be killed. Blaspheming and/or mocking Islam is punishable by death.

      When some nut job bombs an abortion clinic or kills an abortionist, it is against the teachings of Christianity and that individual is not acting according to the tenets of his faith or God’s instruction from the Bible. CONVERSELY, when a Muslim murders or bombs a building or bus full of peaceful innocents, then that person is promised eternal reward according to the Koran…do you get it now?


      old fogie,

He never stands up for it he constantly undermines it every chance he gets!! The whole forcing churches to support programs that they are morally opposed to is all part of the game. They force Catholic colleges to make an Islam room for students, put foot washing stations in malls and airports, let Muslims pray in school. Wheres the outrage from anti-religious groups over this?? Anwser they are scared *********less of Muslims!! Christians turn the other cheek and just let people walk all over them. Im a believer in Christ but I wish we stood up for ourselves more. The soldiers in the Crusades wouldnt put up with this, it would be Spainish Inquistion all over again for these athiests!!! They would think twice about persecuting us then if we put their ass in an iron maiden!!! Sorry if I offend other believers but when is enough going to be enough?? When they start feeding us to lions again?????

      I changed the settings so that the site should fill up the screen for everyone no matter what kind of resolution they are using.

      If anyone is having any problems with the new settings, or if people out there like the new settings please let me know.

    The end of days is rapidly approaching. Buckle up will be bumpy ride.

    Take care.

  • R. Ross

    I would not be surprised to discover that Obama doesn’t care if anyone burns Bibles, but I think it’s more likely that he knows that burning Bibles isn’t going to get anyone killed. Only with the Koran-burning is he afraid enough to rush in and apologize. Still, comparing how he speaks of both, it’s obvious what he respects more and this says a lot about what he truly is.

    • DownWithLibs

      And how ironic that the ONLY one he should fear is Christ the King!!!

  • Michael

    Obama is a Muslim who’s faking being a Christian. In Islamic law there’s no penalty if a parent kills his or her child or grandchild. That’s why Obama’s such an enthusiast for abortion.

    • mondobeyondo

      I honestly don’t know if he is a Muslim or not.
      There is evidence that (purportedly) indicates he might be a Muslim…

      As I said, I honestly don’t know.

    • xander cross

      And do you have any proff of this? So, since you all question about Obama is a christain, let’s see, is Rick Santorum a christian? How about Mitt Romney? Newt Gingrich? Oh, thats right, all of you christians voted for a known adulterer and yet, you support him. Typical. Lets face it, you are attacking obama because you tie muslims with black people.

      • WM

        “you are attacking obama because you tie muslims to black people” You must be black. I work with several blacks, nice fellows, but the race thing ALWAYS seems to come up when you criticize obummer for anyhting. To them, because he is black, he can do no wrong. Please, lets put this biased, blinded racial thinking behind us once and for all. I don;t support any of the politicians, republican or democrat, I think they are all corrupt and hypocrits.

        We attck obummer because, like most politicians before him, he is a liar. he says and promises one thing, and then does another. Politicians are famous for promising things that they really know they cannot change at all, even if they are sincere. The system is just too broken and corrupt for any one man to change anything. Obummer, like GW, like Clinto, etc. are all really just pawns in the hands of the globalists. There is not enough space here to list all the things that obummer lied about, things he has done, etc.

        I personally do not think the 2012 elections will change anything, regardless of who gets in. The only change will be that things are going to continue to get worse and our nation will continue to decline.

        Rather than thinking that their votes will really make a change, there is ONE thing that WILL truly change/save the direction this nation is headed. If this nation as a whole REPENTS and turns to the Lord Jesus Christ. Repents of what you say? Our sins, our arrogance, our pride, our removing God from society, ( prayer in school, Bible in school, public display of 10 Commandments, etc).

        9-11-2001 was a judgement of God to wake us up onto repentance to get us to turn back to God. The finacial collapse of 2008 was a second shaking to try to wake us up onto repentance. Those events have not really waken us up. We continue to murder millions of unborns all in the name of “freedom of choice”, we, as the number one producer of pornography continue top spread this poison around the world, we have disregarded absoulute morals, absolute Truth, and have embraced materialism and humanistic world view. And we are shocked when yet another school shooting happens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        When are we going to get it. That our problem is that wer are spiritually sick and no economic bailout can fix the problem. Our problem is spiritual. Once we fix that, things will begin to heal.

        I personally do not believe that the economy will ever be restored, and things are only going to get worse. The God of our heritage, ( yes, atheists, agnostics, etc) the God of our heritage. Check out history and see what our first president did back on April 30, 1789 at St pauls chapel in NYC. He and the government at that time consecrated this nation the the living God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

        When and only when we turn back to God will this nation begin to be healed.

        If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
        2 Chronicles 7:14

        Only 2 nations in human history have ever consecrated themselves to the Living God: Israel and the United States Of America.

          American exceptionalism is pure hubris, which leads to evil like our montrous invasion of Iraq

  • Kudos American Dream: Outstanding journalism.

    The Arab Spring has sprung with Ayatollah Obama facilitating the Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Libya, and Egypt. The M B is on a roll throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

    Ayatollah Obama never met a Muslim he didn’t like or want to bow to.

    Obama will have us starving and freezing in the dark hoping our windmill’s turn around. Should Chairman Obama get a second term there will be Islam crescent moon flag flying over the White House.

    Cultures Clash and Civilizations Crash.

    Right on American Dream – Write on! Cordially,

  • justadad

    Would someone please explain to the Muslims that the texts burned were ‘defiled’.
    The Koran forbids any tampering with itself and the muslims who used it to pass secret codes were guilty under their own law (punishable by execution in Afghanistan) of blasphemy.
    The proper treatment of a defiled Koran is burning or burying, much like our boy scouts ceremonially burning or burying old flags.
    Our forces actually acted correctly (according to the Koran)and we should not appologize.
    It is a pity that our President is so ill educated both in Christianity and Islam.

    • DownWithLibs

      Understand, it doesn’t matter WHAT we do…we are WRONG!!!!!

      • justadad

        You are correct. I was hoping someone would make that point. Just like the liberals on this site, when you use their terms of engagement, they quickly change the terms and resort to ad hominem attacks.
        Logic does not work with either group.

    Personally I’m scared to burn anyones religious book; Koran, Bible, anything. I’m pretty much an agnostic believing more in some alien monkeying (no pun intended) with DNA altering the evolutionary process thereby creating us.

    Just in case I’m wrong I try to respect everyones belief if possible.

  • Magdiel

    We are living in a marvellous time my brethren,the prophecies in the New Testament are being fulfilled right before our eyes:”Persecution for the true Christians is around the corner”! The second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ is at hand!
    There is another thing I would like to observe,Obama talks about the Islam religion as having “tolerance”. Excuse me? Do they tolerate having any Christian over there in Iraq,or in Afganistan,or,what about Iran,etc.? No mister president,let’s not talk about tolerance when we talk about Islam!
    If you ask me to speak my mind,I would have to say that I believe that this guy in the White House is being led by the devil himself!

  • Christians don’t view the Bible as an idol, so burning a Bible isn’t a big deal.

  • Gay Veteran

    The 2 defining characteristics of today’s conservatives are (1) blind rage and (2) self-pity.

    “…Military officers considered sending the Bibles back to the church, he said, but they worried the church would turn around and send them to another organization in Afghanistan — giving the impression that they had been distributed by the U.S. government.

    That could lead to violence against troops or U.S. civilians, Wright said….”

    Christpaths don’t care if our troops die just so long as the Christopaths can win new converts.

  • xander cross

    in 2008, President Bush similarly apologized to Iraq’s prime minister following the desecration of a Quran by American military personnel. President Bush has apologized to Iraq’s prime minister for an American sniper’s shooting of a Quran, and the Iraqi government called on U.S. military commanders to educate their soldiers to respect local religious beliefs.

    Bush’s spokeswoman said Tuesday that the president apologized during a videoconference Monday with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who told the president that the shooting of Islam’s holy book had disappointed and angered both the Iraqi people and their leaders.

    “He apologized for that in the sense that he said that we take it very seriously,” White House press secretary Dana Perino said. “We are concerned about the reaction. We wanted them to know that the president knew that this was wrong.” Gee, I did not see an article about that. I wonder why?

    • Michael

      Good point about Bush.



        Michael, xander cross,

        Don’t either or both of you find it somewhat exasperating, if not odd, that amerika has been waging a war in Afghanistan for ten years, the arab/muslim world far longer, and no one seems to know that desecrating their holy books in any way, shape, or form riles up the population into a violent frenzy even more so than the military occupation itself? Is there anyone in the asylum state deparment or asylum defense department who knows anything about this part of the world?

        • xander cross

          @Reed. Oh, they know quite well and they do it because it’s to show the muslim people that they don’t respect their culture. It’s to systemically destroy their culture by attacking what they hold dear to. Just like if muslims were to destory everything that white america stands for, which is being superior than every other race. For ten years, the U.S. has been stealing the rare earth minerals that are in Afghanistian and Iraq that they found a year ago, so the great plunder continues. It’s all about conquest.

          • Does ISLAM respect ‘culture’when Christians are tortured in Egypt??????


    A good rule of thumb for asylum states military and state department personnel:


    • xander cross

      I agree. But the milliary don’t respect culture or history. They respect destruction and taking women for themselves or the spoils of war for a better term. Why do you think that they are digging up and taking all of the rare earth minerals in Afghanistian? We’re going to be in Afghanistian for many more years to come.

  • Gay Veteran

    Michael, you need to really inform yourself about is truly driving the violence in Afghanistan. It is NOT merely the burning of Korans.

    The causes of the protests in Afghanistan

    “…“This is not just about dishonoring the Koran, it is about disrespecting our dead and killing our children,” said Maruf Hotak, 60, a man who joined the crowd on the outskirts of Kabul, referring to an episode in Helmand Province when American Marines urinated on the dead bodies of men they described as insurgents and to a recent erroneous airstrike on civilians in Kapisa Province that killed eight young Afghans.

    “They always admit their mistakes,” he said. “They burn our Koran and then they apologize. You can’t just disrespect our holy book and kill our innocent children and make a small apology.”…”


  • Gay Veteran

    why oh why do they hate us?!?!?!?!?

    “…The U.S. has violently occupied their country for more than a decade. It has, as Gen. Stanley McChrystal himself explained, killed what he called an “amazing number” of innocent Afghans in checkpoint shootings. It has repeatedly — as in, over and over — killed young Afghan children in air strikes. It continues to imprison their citizens for years at Bagram and other American bases without charges of any kind and with credible reports of torture and other serious abuses….”

    Stupid christian americans thought by killing muslims in iraq and afghanistan will make gas cheaper but that aint happening…muslims hold more than half of the worldd reserves and have good ties with US enemies mainly china and russia..apologizing to muslims fir burni g the koran is a sensible thing because muslims actually take their book seriously…on the other hand..,..christians are opposite of the bible over the centuries…genozicde, ethnic cleansing and colonialism..obama is dam right he should not be apolohizinh to christians..they dont exist except for the morons during black friday and christmas

    (1) When I was born in this old world my birth was certified
    And written down on paper so it could not be denied;
    I can’t remember being born but do have proof of when:
    I have the birth certificate a doctor issued then.

    (2) In later years I was convicted of my dreadful sin
    And learned that Jesus would forgive and come to live within;
    What happened was an inward change we call the “second birth”
    Which I do value more than all the gold upon the earth.

    (3) Some folks can’t furnish written proof they’ve ever had a birth
    For they have lost all papers that they’ve ever had on earth;
    And some will cover up the facts of all their darkened past
    By changing birth certificates so they won’t finish last.

    (4) My “born again” certificate cannot be changed by pen
    Or by a crafty rustler’s art or other wicked men;
    It’s signed in blood eternally, as binding as can be—-
    Christ signed it with His precious blood He shed for you and me!

    Just like that flordia pastor that burn korans and provoked muslims for months. I did not see an article about that. I personally think that this is a anti muslim article, but somehow, it’s okay for christians to provoke other people by burning their holy books?

    • That is all I heard from the liberal media while Scumbag Bill Maher And libtard Mike malloy Not only attack Christians but God Himself yet this is not considered hate speech!!!

  • piazi

    The reason we are all on this site is because we have failed to learn from the past & ignored the truths or twisted the facts to serve our short sighted ends. To do things right again we gotta step up & accept our wrongs. “Truth shall set you free”. Christianity had 600 to 700 years to get things right but failed. As soon as Islam shows up it is portrayed as evil. Well arabs are his children too. After all, it was arabs that brought civilization to the european masses too, not the churches! There are more ways to burn a book. All are wrong. Education & awareness is missing……………

  • Alana

    Why can’t they learn in there country? Why don’t we ban guns in there country? Let’s stop children from being war soldiers in iraq, doesn’t that seem more logical? Instead of banning guns from innocent people who work hard, ban them from terror groups aka refugees.
