Army Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis (ret.), the senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council, said the reason why President Barack Obama has difficulty speaking candidly about radical Islamic terrorism is because his father was Muslim, he grew up partly in Islamic Indonesia, and his “worldview” is “more Islamic” than “Christian.”
On the Sept. 22 edition of The Jim Bakker Show, the host asked, “Why do some of our leaders have such a difficult time defining terrorism?”
Maginnis, a graduate of West Point and the Naval Postgraduate School, said, “Well, you’d obviously have to ask them. I think that in Mr. Obama’s case, like Franklin Graham says – and I totally agree with him – and that is, the man [Obama] had a Muslim father, [and] he grew up part of his life in Indonesia.”
“When he is amongst a Muslim population, he is incredibly sympathetic, and apologetic for our Christian nation,” said Maginnis.
“His worldview is that of being more Islamic than he is being Christian,” said Maginnis.
“So that explains to me why he would favor giving them [radical Muslims] a pass and coming down hard on a Christian, western civilization,” the retired lieutenant colonel said.
