No, no! You've got it all wrong. These are merely Syrian citizens who just coincidentally happen to be Christians. It's all unconnected. If you don't believe that, just ask obama and he'll tell you about it.
How in the world can Senators who have taken an oath to protect and to defend the Constitution of the United States of America vote to confirm a candidate for the highest law enforcement position in the nation who openly endorses the violation of that constitution by supporting the "right" of ILLEGAL ALIENS to work in the United States?
If one were to look back at the first TV news gods (Murrow, Cronkite, Huntley, Brinkley, etc,) one would find that they all to a greater or lesser degree pushed their opinions on the viewer. Some did it inadvertently (Huntley and Brinkley) and some did it deliberately due to their messianic attitude toward their own fame (Walter Cronkite). But at least, when they lied to us, their lies did not glorify their own experiences. Cronkite colored his reports on the war in Viet Nam because he objected to the war on political grounds. He did not build a mythology with him as Perseus at the center of it all. Anyone who believed Williams' blather about himself and became disillusioned due to its being revealed as false probably failed to detect all of the falseness in Williams' news casts. This is a package deal. Williams, his lies about his "heroic" behavior in danger zones, and his pronouncements about the news. All false, all worthless.

One of the good nuns who taught me in grade school told us a story about a woman who went to confession, told the priest that she had told ruinous lies about another woman whom she did not like. For her penance, the priest told her to take one of her feather pillows up the windiest hill in town , cut it open, and throw the feathers to the wind. Then, he instructed her to gather those feathers back and put them into the pillow once more. She balked and said that this was an impossible task. He told her that the feathers were the lies she had told and replacing the reputation she had smeared was just as impossible as making the pillow whole again.

The smartest man in the country would have the high school, college, and law school grades to prove it. obama's grades are locked away in a secret hiding place which spends millions of dollars keeping he secret. I don't believe that obama has an even marginally high normal I Q. His faux pas about the 57 states, his positions which often defy logic, and his inability to see the reality in front of his face would seem to mark him as a lunkhead.

Of course there is no moral equivalency between Christianity and Islam. To argue that there is requires an abandonment of all perception of reality. This position is so patently ridiculous that it doesn't even bear presentation. I wouldn't dignify it with a response. obama is so wedded to his base of automatons that he will offer up an argument as ridiculous as this one expecting it to be bought by intelligent people just because his kool ade drinking zombies buy it.
Proselytizing the Bible is anathema to the public school system. The Bible as language, as poetry, as history, is not just studied, it is poured over as a seminal influence in the development of Western Civilization.
Of course we would say the same thing. It's not who was shamed, it's that ANYONE was shamed in a high school English class.
If you choose to insert your male member into the rectum of your friend, no one pulls out a weapon and forbids you to do so. However, there are many people who will take steps to make sure you do it OUTSIDE OF THE PUBLIC EYE. Oddly enough, these same people also object to heterosexual copulation in the public eye. It's more a matter of taste and privacy than it is a matter of sexual freedom.
Wasn't it Reagan who said that the scariest sentence in the English language was: "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you."?
