Obama Logic: Disdained White House Nativity Scene Due to Separation of Church and State, Vocally Markets Islamic Victory Mosque at Ground Zero

If someone figures out the tortured logic of the left, could you please send me an email and let me know?

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Exhibit C

My favorite is Exhibit C.

White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers... [said] that this year the White House would have a "non-religious" Christmas celebration... "Ms. Rogers [noted] that the Obamas did not intend to put the manger scene on display — a remark that drew an audible gasp from the tight-knit social secretary sisterhood. (A White House official confirmed that there had been internal discussions about making Christmas more inclusive and whether to display the crèche.)"

After the outcry, the White House withdrew its bizarre ban of the Nativity scene.

Compare and contrast.

At Ramadan Iftar dinner, Obama supports new mosque on private property near Ground Zero

"I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances."

In addition to hosting a Ramadan Iftar dinner, the President also released his special Ramadan message to Muslims around the world this week.

On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I want to extend our best wishes to Muslims in America and around the world. Ramadan Kareem.

Ramadan is a time when Muslims around the world reflect upon the wisdom and guidance that comes with faith, and the responsibility that human beings have to one another, and to God. This is a time when families gather, friends host iftars, and meals are shared. But Ramadan is also a time of intense devotion and reflection – a time when Muslims fast during the day and pray during the night; when Muslims provide support to others to advance opportunity and prosperity for people everywhere. For all of us must remember that the world we want to build – and the changes that we want to make – must begin in our own hearts, and our own communities.

These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.... today, I want to extend my best wishes to the 1.5 billion Muslims around the world – and your families and friends – as you welcome the beginning of Ramadan... I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.

This President is a cipher in every way. And that's not a good thing.

Well done...

And it is so funny to see Democrats try to say, Obama is defending the Constitution!

Very funny indeed.

Did they forget about the 15th Amendment?

Failing to defend the RIGHT TO VOTE?

They pick and chose as they wish, for whatever thing they want, debasing all for their own mindless greed and destructive agenda.

The IRONY is, this is the same Mr. Obama who campaigned on debasing the admirable US efforts after 9-11, to lead the World to encourage, promote, grow, defend, fight for FREEDOM around the Globe.

Obama demeaned and vilified the USA repeated, telling us all how we shouldn't "meddle" in LOCAL cultural affairs - even if that included burying Women and Children alive in mass graves.

He seems to be forgetting about the 'feelings' and 'sensitivities' of OTHERS in the USA, who see the Ground Zero area as sacred ground.

Once again, the fraud is vivid, just like when Obama lied about earmarks, lobbyists, signing statements, taxation, GITMO, executive orders, transparency, fiscal responsibility, accountability, bows to Kings, Iraq, etc.

Democrats lie, and we all pay the price for their unethical destructive folly.

I just get this rotten feeling every time Obama does something like this. The same feeling I get when some jerk cuts me off and gives me the finger as he goes down an exit ramp.

As did Thomas Jefferson. As did George Bush. Look it up.

You did not complain when he made similar statements of respect for Christians and Jews at their major holidays.

How would people react to a Japanese cultural center at Peal Harbor in 1943?
