ISIL seeks to exploit the idea that there is a war between Islam and the West," he said. "When you starting seeing individuals in positions of responsibility suggesting that Christians are more worthy of protection than Muslims are—in a war-torn land—that feeds the ISIL narrative."
It's counterproductive and it needs to stop, he warned.""We don't have religious tests to our compassion," he told journalists from high atop his soapbox.
But that's not entirely accurate.Last year, the Obama administration led a fierce legal battle to have a German Christian family thrown out of the United States.The Romeikes fled their homeland in search of a nation where they could homeschool their children. A judge initially granted them asylum—believing they were escaping from religious persecution.However, the Obama administration waged a fierce campaign against the Romeike family—demanding they be returned to Germany.The family lost court battle after court battle—but at the 11th hour, the White House relented and decided begrudgingly to let them stay.And just a few months ago, a federal immigration judge ordered a dozen Iraqi Christians deported from a facility in San Diego.An Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson declined to tell The San Diego Union-Tribune why the Iraqi Christians were being sent back to their native land.So the next time President Obama wants to lecture the nation about religion, maybe he could explain why his administration is importing Muslims and deporting Christians.
