According to John Kerry, the Bible commands us to protect Muslims from global warming. He also claims “Americans have a right to be stupid”.
Remarks at the Syria Donors Conference
…. people are reduced to eating grass and leaves and killing stray animals in order to survive on a day-to-day basis. That is something that should tear at the conscience of all civilized people, and we all have a responsibility to respond to it
….we are called on to act today, and act we will. To date, the United States has provided over 4.5 billion to help Syrian refugees and those displaced within Syria, and I am proud that that makes us to date the largest single donor from external in the world. There are countries like Turkey and others who have a huge burden internally, and out of their budgets they’re trying to meet that.
So today the United States is announcing our latest contribution, which is over $925 million. That includes more than 600 million in direct humanitarian aid to provide food, shelter, water, medical care, and other vital relief to millions of people inside of Syria and across the region. It also includes 325 million in development assistance, 290 million of which is new funding specifically to support schooling for 300,000 refugee youth in Jordan and Lebanon – meeting directly, hopefully, the challenge that we face here today.
….we will do the business that the nation and the world has set out for us. Thank you. (Applause.)
And not to 300,000 imminently-threatened-with-genocide Assyrian Christians from Iraq and Syria, nor to any Yazidis, also threatened with genocide? This is obscene. He is bringing in the persecutors rather than the persecuted.
By his own account, Obama became a Christian in the early 1990s at Jeremiah Wright’s church, after a period of spiritual searching and rootlessness. But why? Rush Limbaugh is right: he has been markedly critical of Christianity and has repeatedly and effusively praised Islam. So why did he become a Christian at all?
This is aside from the widespread suspicion that he is or was a Muslim, which is based as much on his statements and policies as President as it is on the fact that his father and stepfather were Muslims and that he says in his first autobiography that he got in trouble as a child for making faces in Qur’an class, which Christian children did not attend. Whether or not one thinks he was ever a Muslim, the question Rush raises is intriguing — if he wasn’t one, and he loves Islam so much, why didn’t he become one? Was it just for political gain?
