Considering his War on Catholics has badly backfired judging by his plummeting approval ratings, it’s absolutely laughable that this tool will come out now and urge people not to use religion to score cheap political points.
President Obama warned against “using religion as a bludgeon in politics,” pushing back against critics who have accused him of waging a “war on religion” through recent policy decisions.
Obama said it’s a problem when religion is used “to divide, instead of bring the country together” in an interview that aired Monday on Iowa TV.
“When we start using religion as a bludgeon in politics, we start questioning other people’s faith, we start using religion to divide, instead of bring the country together, then I think we’ve got a problem,” Obama told Des Moines’s local NBC affiliate, Who TV.
In his world, it’s fine for him to do it, but don’t dare anyone else invoke religion. Can’t have that.
He’s spent three years dividing people across religious, economic and class lines and has the temerity to warn anyone else to cut it out.
