Barack Obama Uses the Easter Address to Remind Us That Islam has a Similar Christian Shared Commitment to “Love Our Neighbors As We Love Ourselves” … HUH?

 

ISLAM IS WHAT?

President Barack Obama used his weekly address to spew forward one of the most bizarre and convoluted Easter messages, maybe of all time. Who knew it was a common thread of Muslims was to “love our neighbors as we love ourselves?” Maybe Obama can some how explain how THIS is loving thy neighbor?

The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.  To remember, I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper.  Whatever your faith, believer or nonbeliever, there’s no better time to rededicate ourselves to that universal mission.

 From the White House website: Saturday, April 19, 2014.

Hi, everybody.  For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning.

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their retellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression.

And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.

These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago.  And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today.  They remind us of our responsibilities to God and, as God’s children, our responsibilities to one another.

For me, and for countless other Christians, Holy Week and Easter are times for reflection and renewal.  We remember the grace of an awesome God, who loves us so deeply that He gave us his only Son, so that we might live through Him.  We recall all that Jesus endured for us – the scorn of the crowds, the agony of the cross – all so that we might be forgiven our sins and granted everlasting life.  And we recommit ourselves to following His example, to love and serve one another, particularly “the least of these” among us, just as He loves every one of us.

The common thread of humanity that connects us all – not just Christians and Jews, but Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs – is our shared commitment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.  To remember, I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper.  Whatever your faith, believer or nonbeliever, there’s no better time to rededicate ourselves to that universal mission.

For me, Easter is a story of hope – a belief in a better day to come, just around the bend.

So to all Christians who are celebrating, from my family to yours, Happy Easter.  And to every American, have a joyful weekend.

Thanks, God bless you, and may God bless this country we love.

      Loving your neighbor is not a universal mission of humanity! It is a doctrine taught by Christ to those who would listen. I doubt many Muslims would espouse following Christ.

      Islam ? let’s see, they murdered one of their own. Malcolm X because he finally found out that white people were not devils and that the nation of islam were womanizers breeding babies out of wedlock. so, for his questioniung of their teachings vs what was the real truth got him murdered and obama wants us to give them a hug ?

      The Muslim motto is not, “Love thy neighbor,” but “Kill they neighbor,” if he happens to be a non-Muslim. How dare that Mohammedan Obama compare the peaceful doctrine of Christianity to that of the blood thirsty, murdering, pedophile, misogynist philosophy of Islam. This only proves further that Obama is a Muslim, born a Muslim, raised a Muslim, attended school as a Muslim and thinks that the sound of evening prayer is the “Sweetest sound in the world.
      I doubt that this country will ever wake up to the true nature of his plot to establish a world-wide Caliphate. Even if it does, it is likely too late to stop Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood.
