SOCT agrees with President Obama’s statement about early Christians.
This month [February 2015] President Barack Obama gave a speech about what is going on with Jordan and ISIS. He informed all American’s that are “war hungry” not to forget that even Christianity has exhibited extremism in the past. He reminded us to look at the past when Roman Catholics killed those people who did not conform to Catholic doctrine. During that time the Roman Catholics were the extremists. All religions have developed pockets of extremism. ~
Just because one Christian group acts badly does not mean that we can conclude that “all Christians” are therefore bad. This works with any religion. As far as fighting ISIS goes America has put more effort than any other nation in the fight against religious extremism. America is doing what it can within reason to fight a good fight. So, please do not misunderstand the Presidents remarks regarding this very important issue. ~
If we forget the past we are doomed to repeat it! ~
