Obama extols Koran; press missed it

A Christian writer says President Obama's recent speech in Cairo praising Islam is further evidence the American president has a "low view" of biblical Christianity.

Robert Knight, a senior writer for Coral Ridge Ministries, has written a column titled "Obama Nation's Low View of Christianity." Knight says he wrote the column as a service to everyone who wants thorough documentation -- not just bits and pieces -- of President Obama's statements distorting Christianity.

Knight argues that the most disturbing thing President Obama said in his Cairo speech was that the Middle East was the first place where Islam was "revealed."

"That word 'revealed' is very important," Knight explains. "It means an unveiling, and it means a divinely-inspired unveiling -- which would indicate that the president is saying the Koran is a holy book. In fact, he referred to the Koran several times as the 'Holy Koran.'"

Such a perspective from their elected chief executive, says Knight, should concern Bible-believing Christians.

"If you're a Christian, you don't regard the Koran as a holy book of any sort," he states. "You regard it as springing out of the Old Testament, because it incorporates a lot of the Torah, as does the Christian Bible -- but then it goes off into a false religion."

Knight says to call the Koran a holy book goes beyond diplomacy, yet Obama understood the significance of what he was saying because "of all people, he knows the power of words." However, Knight points out that most of the press in the United States missed or ignored the remark.

iam getting more of an education on the Koran than i ever wanted but Not calling it the Holy Koran would of been insulting to the Arabs, as well as when he said somthing about Muhammad and then followed that with "peace be upon him"which is supposed to follow after anybody talks about Muhammad.

The press created many 'perception' issues with George Bush. From the firing of federal DA's being illegal (most idiots did not relize the president hires and fires em) to Chaney outing a CIA operative (outed by a democrat) the media creates news and does not report it.
Also, the press did not report the 450 Kg's of Uranium we removed from Iraq during the election. The finding of yellow cake Uranium in Iraq should have been all over the news to exonerate G W Bush but the wanted a different outcome to the election.
So the media lets you know what they want you to know for their purposes. I have wondered if someone is getting paid off

They are all lazy liberal arts majors. They can hardly spell, the local paper here was taken over by Gannet. They are so freaking liberal that it is laughable. I do 2 crossword puzzles and the Jumbles. Those are the only things worth reading.

He is a submissive piece of shit. For the president of the United States to bow to the HGHIC (that's Head Goat Herder In Charge) of Saudi Arabia and now Kowtow to the muslims shows he is a pussy and wants to appease the world. Again, i have bad thoughts going through my head that are best left there.
