If you take your Christian faith very seriously, you’ve got a much better chance of being a racist, a bigot or a xenophobe according to Obama:
In the unusual discussion, Obama revealed some of his longstanding frustrations with politics while asking the Iowa author questions about her family, her Christian faith and her writings.
“How do you reconcile the idea of faith being really important to you and you caring a lot about taking faith seriously with the fact that, at least in our democracy and our civic discourse, it seems as if folks who take religion the most seriously sometimes are also those who are suspicious of those not like them?” Obama asked during the interview, which was published Monday in the New York Review of Books.
As soon as I read this it reminded me of something that I think you’ll agree has a very similar tone:
“And it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations…”
Ah yes, the infamous condescending comments from 2008 calling bitter people who cling to their guns and religion the type that is also likely to have antipathy to people who aren’t like them – so a racist, a bigot, or a xenophobe.
This president hasn’t changed a bit. What a puke.
