    No doubt including most of them being wiped out in mostly Christian Europe.

    You think France who I believe is primarily a Catholic country isn't full of anti-Semites?


    The biggest change has been secular law winning out in much of the Christian world which has protected minority rights.

    Also, most responses in this thread are extremely predictable and shortsighted.

    Christian like Israel because they think that the final battle of Armageddon will be fought there and the nation of Israel must survive for that to happen....just so they can be destroyed by God-person.

    Their friendship with the nation of Israel is disingenuous and freaking creepy. Kinda like befriending the old man down the street 2 weeks before he dies so that he'll give you his lawn tractor on his deathbed. Weirdos.

    Forgive me. Post WWII.

    Of course they are. I was more referring to America but there are still supporters of Israel in Europe, including a big one in England.

    I don't want to boil this over because I don't think it really matters that much since most of the West protects religous freedom through secular law.

    Reality is there are many Christians who support Israel who are also anti-semetic.

    Not that it's such a big deal because frankly who cares as long as its not acted on.

    Agreed for the most part. Obama is an atheist who figured out a long time ago that it's basically impossible to enter the American political arena without a religion under your belt.

    [QUOTE=Warfish;4008626]In making these types of Religious Dy Observance Pronouncements, the President appears to be favoring (i.e. making, and making more loudly via the non-Fox media) those of an Islamic stripe.

    If giving the benefit of the doubt, it may simply be PR to Islam (both radical and the masses) to portray the U.S. as more Islamic-friendly than we may have appeared (to they of Islam) in the past.

    I can't attribute more to it that that, as anything more starts veering into Conspiracy Theory land, fun place to visit, scary place to live.[/QUOTE]

    My 2 cents: The Right does a lot of screaming about "Christian values" and they allude back to Manifest Destiny.

    It appears to me that Obama wants to turn down the volume of Christian yak, as it builds the impression that we are interested in promoting those ideas as our primary order of business. "The USA was founded on Christian ideals!"

    That said, it seems petty to NOT recognize Easter. I can empathize strongly with the OP.

    The man went to church on Easter, had an Easter "prayer breakfast" and had 30,000 people in his backyard rolling Easter eggs.

    It's funny that he appears to have needed to issue an official utterance about it to make his Easter observation official. :P

    The NRA, and the mopes like Falwell and the rest that act high and mighty in the name of Christianity? Well, that happens to count for something; shame that it's egg on your face as a Christian.

    I understand you are pointing at the hypocrisy. That was the intent of my post towards the OP.

    The Easter Bunny died for our sins?
