Last week, Obama used the National Prayer Breakfast to slam Christianity.
Not surprisingly, those on the right were upset. But now, even anchors with left wing MSNBC are speaking out about how the president acted during the event.
On ‘Meet the Press’ Sunday, anchor Andrea Mitchell said, “You don’t use the word ‘crusades,’ number one, in any context right now, it’s just too fraught.”
She continued, “And the week after a pilot is burned alive, in a video shown, you don’t lean over backwards to be philosophical about the sins of the fathers. You have to deal with the issue that’s in front of you or don’t deal with it at all. Talk about faith.”
Chuck Todd pressed Mitchell, but she stuck to her guns.
Todd asked, “So you think he made a mistake?”
Mitchell responded, “I do. Because it’s so out of context and it is so much in passing. If you’re giving a major speech about theology perhaps, but this is the Prayer Breakfast and remember the context of that is very limited.”
