    "Obama offends Catholics in the UK, says religious schools are divisive

    PrintThe Catholic media is up in arms over comments President Obama made during a speech while in Northern Ireland for the G8 summit. Obama made what is described as “an alarming call for an end to Catholic education,” in spite of the fact that it is considered “a critical component of the Church.”


    Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

    In front of an audience of about 2,000 young people, including many Catholics, Obama claimed that Catholic education divides people and blocks peace, according to the Scottish Catholic Observer.

    “If towns remain divided—if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden—that too encourages division and discourages cooperation,” Obama said.

    Catholic World News noted:

    Ironically, President Obama made his comments just as Archbishop Gerhard Müller, the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, told a crowd in Scotland that religious education upholds the dignity of the human person. Archbishop Müller said that Catholic schools should promote “all that is good in the philosophies of societies and human culture.”

    Fr. John Zuhlsdorf quoted the Observer’s article on Fr. Z’s blog and added:

    Another example of what this man wants: total isolation of any religious values in the private sphere alone. Pres. Obama is working either to intimidate or legislate or even TAX religious freedom out of the public square.

    Off the top of my head, I can’t think of a foreign visit to a Islamic nation where he told people on his arrival that they shouldn’t have madrasas. Can you?

    Did he when visiting, say, Israel, say “You Jews shouldn’t have synagogue schools and you muslims shouldn’t have mosque schools.” I can’t remember. Did he?

    Each of the articles drew numerous public comments, most suggesting that Obama be more concerned about the public schools in the United States than their parochial schools, which are working just fine."

    Hoof-in-Mouth disease, not uncommon in politicians who like to pontificate while making pretty speaches. In fairness, Catholic schools is just not a real issue for Obama...

    It is rare for the word offensive to be used against a member of the left. This is because the word offensive is such a pansyfied word that real people simply don't use it, in recognition of the fact that none of us has the right not to be offended.

    The word is a contrivance of the left that allows them to loudly object to things they have no rational justification for objecting to. It also allows them to engage in their favorite activity, accusing anyone who doesn't line up with their agenda, and most often used cudgel, to beat their enemies into submission by merely claiming offense.

    I never heard the word used until the militant left took over the democrat party.

    Those, including Obama, who hate Christianity and want it removed from the marketplace of ideas, should be pleased because they are winning. When they see what is going to replace it they may be far less pleased.

    I find Obama's remarks to be highly offensive, showing bigotry and a failure to honor and respect the lifestyle and diversity of others.

    Most often Christians forgive those who have offended them in time, as opposed to the 'Red Queen's off with her head', call for revenge.

    Funny though, O leads people to believe that he is a Christian. Then he attacks Christians whether they be Catholic or not, every chance he gets. Foul to say the least.

    Going to Ireland and speaking against parochial schools is kinda like going to Germany and speaking against beer. I am trying hard, but failing, to see his point here. And this is the great conversationalist?

    Proselytizing president in a foreign country? What gives? Why should he say anything negative or positive about the teachings of the Catholic faith? It wasn't a theological discussion was it?

    The MF is doing his best to push America to the bottom of the heap.

    It would be good if his term ended early.

    Kinda like Dirty Harry coming to our legislature and telling Nevada that we need to get rid of legal prostitution...... I don't even think he was kidding! They (libs/most politicians) sure have it figured out how we should live.

    Wait a second, maybe Obama's got something there. Catholic education is lacking somewhere. Obama did get the Catholic vote the first election didn't he?

    I agree, let's start by burning down all the Madrasah's! We can let the drones do it!

    What do Muslims care about other people's rights, religion, or the persuits of happiness? It is their way or the highway.
