On her radio commentary today, Linda Harvey slammed President Obama for coddling Islam while insulting Christianity at every turn. Harvey played a clip of Obama saying America rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others when it comes to Islam and then compared that to a clip of Obama speaking at a White House LGBT Pride Month reception, where he said that some people continue to oppose efforts to achieve equality because they “still hold fast to worn arguments and old attitudes.”
To Harvey, this was proof of Obama’s “stunning hypocrisy” and proof that the administration “bends over backwards for Islam while sticking it to Christians time and again”:
You would think that our leaders would understand by now that we are not dealing with a reasonable ideology and it’s time to stop making excuses. At the very least you would think Barack Obama could be consistent. If he and his cabinet members are willing to plead for understanding for Islam despite the violent track record shown by so many people who adhere to this faith, you would think that our president would have a soft heart for Christians in this country who are anxious to be able to live out our faith principles. If he respects, understands, and apologizes for one religion, why not others? But that is unfortunately not the case … He bends over backwards for Islam while sticking it to Christians time and again.
