A Christian apologist believes President Obama's comments at the National Prayer Breakfast were borderline treasonous.

During his address in Washington, Obama told those in attendance to "remember that during the crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ."

Dr. Alex McFarland, a Christian apologist and co-host of American Family Radio's "Exploring the Word" program, says the president's words are unthinkable and "borderline treasonous, really."

"To compare Christianity to the crimes of Islam is absolutely unacceptable," Dr. McFarland asserts. "Islam in its sacred writings prescribes violence against non-believers; the Bible does not. Mohammad ordered the killings of his enemies; Jesus Christ never did that."

He further adds that Obama does not understand the historic background of the Crusades, which happened hundreds of years before the formation of the United States.

McFarland, Alex

"The Crusades were self-defense against Muslim barbarism and murder," McFarland explains. "So to in some way attribute Christianity as being the evil equivalent of Islamic terrorism is absolutely ludicrous."

McFarland is praying that the next U.S. president will not be ashamed of America and not bow before the U.N. Saudi kings or any other foreign power.
