In The Young Turks on YouTube by Hlarson0 Comments


“President Obama denounced those around the world who distort religion to justify wars and violence in his address Thursday to faith and political leaders at the National Prayer Breakfast,

“We see faith driving us to do right,” Obama said. “We also see faith being twisted and distorted, used as a wedge, or worse, sometimes as a weapon.”

Obama noted the recent atrocities by ISIS, the January shooting at the offices of the satirical weekly magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, fighting in the Central African Republic and other recent events in which religion served as a motivating factor.”
