Bishop Jackson Slams Obama: ‘Frankly Sir, You Ought To Close Your Mouth’

Last week President Obama slammed Christians by claiming that the crusades that ended over 500 years ago makes Christianity as bad as radical Islam is today. Naturally Christian-hating liberals hailed Obama’s hate-speech as intellectually brilliant. But not everyone was so taken with Obama’s brilliance.

As Western Journalism notes[1], the founder of StandAmerica, Bishop E. W. Jackson, told Elizabeth Hasselbeck on Friday morning’s Fox and Friends that he had a message for President Obama:

I have a message for the president with all due respect to him and to the office: Mr. President, if you don’t want to give terrorists a recruitment’s tool, instead of closing Guantanamo Bay, frankly sir, you ought to close your mouth. Because you just gave them a gigantic propaganda tool. They called us ‘crusaders’ and you just confirmed it.

Mr. President, we’re not on our ‘high horse.’ What we are is on high alert. And the American people would like for once, to know that you are willing to defend Christianity and defend America instead of defending Islam.

I would remind the president that the Crusades began in 1096 as a response to Islamic aggression and the fact that they had conquered the Holy Land and they were oppressing Eastern Christians. And there was a response to that. So, if the president is even going to cite that as an example, then he ought to get his history complete.

This president does everything he possibly can to defend Islam and does almost nothing to defend the honor of this country. And yes, once again, he’s giving them exactly what they want. And you know, Elizabeth, they’re laughing at us because all they see it as, is a sign of weakness. And America needs to operate from strength.

Pray for our president. I think he’s deeply misguided and confused. Pray for our country. We need leaders who will defend the integrity of our nation.

Right on, Bishop Jackson.
