President Obama excoriated a reporter at a news conference in Antalya, Turkey, on Monday, Nov 16 saying: “….And when I hear folks say that, well, maybe we should just admit the Christians but not the Muslims, when I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which person who’s fleeing from a war-torn country is admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefited from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that’s shameful,” he said, his voice rising. “That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion.”
Despite President Obama’s sanctimonious proclamation Monday that America does not have a religious test when it comes to admitting refugees into America, the actual math appears to show the complete opposite is true. According to CNSNews.com, who looked at the data, only 53 Syrian Christian refugees have been allowed into America, compared to 2,098 Syrian Muslims. Obama took to the world stage to push for more Muslim migration and to scold anyone who tied terrorism to Islam. Why is he admonishing us? We didn’t tie Islam to terrorism. The jihadists are the ones who have done that. Devout Muslims are waging war in the cause of Islam by their word and deed, so why is Obama blaming us? Why?
Who the hell is Barack Hussein Obama to tell us what is American and what isn’t?
While never holding Muslims to account for jihad, Obama has excoriated Christians for… the Crusades. Is that American?
And yes we do allow and have used religious tests and the Constitution only prohibits religious tests for Officials in Government and Obama has even used religion as a dog whistle to get votes for himself. It seems that he uses religious tests when he wants to and refuses to use religious tests when he wants to so he’s lying and being a hypocrit when he implies he’s against religions tests.
Article 6, part of Paragraph 3 in the U.S. Constitution:
“…..no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
BUT, ……”This does not apply to voters, who are free to apply a religious test or any other test of their devising to their consciences before casting their secret ballot for a candidate for federal office; it only means that the federal government may not refuse to swear-in and seat an elected official based on a religious test of their devising.” HERE
In addition, there are plenty of tests to identify a Terrorist who is driven by his Muslim Religion, for example a member of “The Taliban”, to fight against America and to kill Americans because his God commands it. “Do you want to kill Jews? Do you want to kill Americans? Do you agree or disagree that Americans are your enemy? are all non-religious questions but remember, according to the U.S. Constitution the American government is not forbidden to ask questions about religion so Obama is wrong in what he said about religious tests, not that Obama has ever admitted to being in favor of using religion even though he has admitted he is a Christian.
So the President has used religion and religious tests on himself when it was politically beneficial and even though the Constitution prohibits religion as a test for public office. Obama showed the voters that he is religious and that he is Christian.
