To The Daily Sun,
Mr. Young, you guys just never give up, do you? Always trying to connect the president to some sort of controversy that would make him anti-American. Are you really trying to deny that those who practiced slavery in the South didn't hide behind religion, or the Crusades were connected to Christianity? The objective of the Crusades was to take back previously conquered Christian territory. I'm sure some of the slave owners would have called themselves religious people or Christians. They did live in the Bible Belt.
So, does that mean all religious people or Christians were slave owners or believed in slavery? I doubt it, and I never heard any sort of justification in the name of Christ for slavery or the actions of slave owners. As a matter of fact, slavery was almost outlawed before we even became a country on some of the earlier drafts of the Declaration of Independence because we were a religious country. So using that as a basis, I feel, that is the reason President Obama will not use the two words together.
All those who practice Islam are not terrorists and all terrorists are not true followers of Islam. But those that promote jihad are the ones we have to worry about those are the real terrorists, no matter what religion they practice be it Christianity or Islam.
