The President's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast

Submitted by frlarry on Sun, 02/08/2015 - 16:50

The President's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast (see the transcript) has been badly characterized in the media. Nowhere, for example, will you find the ringing phrase "violence rooted in religion". Even though the President did see fit to remind us that "during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ" his sin may have been rather a matter of omission than commission.
