BARACK OBAMA on his Christian Faith, Easter Prayer Breakfast 2015: "On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love. And I have to say that sometimes, when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned."
MARK STEYN: Well, if I'd been at that prayer breakfast, I would have shouted out "shame." And I think it's a pretty poor reflection even on presumably loyal liberal Democrats in that audience that no one objected to it because it is time for people to object to it. This is part of a conscious strategy. Just before he stood up and made that condescending remark -- and by the way, he's no more an expert on Christianity than he is on Islam. ... 148 young students in Kenya have just been killed, slaughtered, their bodies on the floor, by Muslim fanatics who asked the students in that university, Are you Christian or are you Muslim? And they let the Muslims go and they slaughtered the Christians. Now, this is a guy who's happy to draw general lessons when a black youth gets killed in Ferguson, Missouri. That apparently has wide application for black people all over America. But 148 black corpses has no general application! Well, Mr. President, #blacklivesmatter when they're Christian, too. And the biggest story of our time is the extinction of some of the oldest Christian communities on the planet at the hands of Islam remorselessly. You dishonor those Kenyan students in death by not identifying them as Christians, as you dishonored the Egyptians only a couple of weeks earlier.
