“Unless we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” Obama said. “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ"

Most??? There are still pastors and heads of religious organizations now calling for the execution of gays and anyone in the family health care industry. So check your math again.

Textsource? I mean are you aware of any Christian church/pastor/leader suggesting this (aside from the Westboro one-church-full-of-nuts?)
look at the world today and judge the tree by the fruit.
btw, I have heard Obama sing the praises of islam on multiple occasions. Has anyone heard him once say anything positive about Christianity?

Appalled at the large-scale massacre of Palestinian civilians in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps situated at Beirut,
Recognizing the universal outrage and condemnation of that massacre,
Recalling its resolution ES-7/9 of 24 September 1982,
1. Condemns in the strongest terms the large-scale massacre of
Palestinian civilians in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps;
2. Resolves that the massacre was an act of genocide

Those weren't christian's that just burned a guy alive.
Those weren't christian's that go around beheading people.
Those aren't christians' over in Iraq, and Syria nation building.
Because we are talking about current events.

Even though I'm far from being fan of President Obama, I'm just not seeing a story here. Certainly nothing Mud-Pit worthy.
Many who call or have called themselves Christian or Muslim throughout history and have claimed their actions were in the name of their religion are or were liars. Not a hard concept to understand when viewed through a lens not clouded with hate.
The yeah but you did this, you did that crowd have very cloudy lenses, some completely blocked by the log in their eyes.
How hard can it be to understand that all groups, religious or otherwise have bad apples mixed in among them?
This is going to be a looooooooooooooooong election season.
