Former Baptist pastor and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee … said that President Barack Obama has shown an “undying support” for Muslims, while his actions are against Christians and Jews. Huckabee’s criticism stems from last week’s National Prayer Breakfast, where Obama used the Crusades as an example of Christians doing “terrible acts” in the name of Christ.
“Everything he does is against what Christians stand for, and he’s against the Jews in Israel. The one group of people that can know they have his undying, unfailing support would be the Muslim community. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the radical Muslim community or the more moderate Muslim community,” Huckabee said on “Fox and Friends” on Monday.
Obama said in his speech on Thursday: “Unless 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 has been criticized by a number of Christian leaders for comparing the actions of terror group ISIS to the Crusades, with The Catholic League’s Bill Donohue pointing out that the comparison is inaccurate. “The president should apologize for his insulting comparison,” Donohue said. “Obama’s ignorance is astounding and his comparison is pernicious.” He added that the Crusades, which were initiated by the Roman Catholic Church’s Pope Urban II in 1095, were a “defensive Christian reaction against Muslim madmen of the Middle Ages.”
