Trump: ‘A Lot Of People Think’ Obama Has ‘Evil Intentions’ With Muslim Refugees

Yesterday, Donald Trump spoke with right-wing radio host Michael Savage about his plan to take on ISIS, bragging that he came up with the U.S. plan to attack the group’s oil infrastructure, which he said only started “about two days ago.” (The U.S. has actually launched hundreds of attacks against the so-called Islamic State’s oil infrastructure since last August.)

“Does anybody say, ‘Thank you Donald?” he asked. “Nobody. I’ve been the only one.”

Savage went on to ask Trump what he believes is President Obama’s “real reason for flooding America with Muslims from Syria,” which Trump said was “hard to imagine.”

“Obviously some people think it’s evil intentions, I think it’s incompetence, regardless, a lot of people think it’s evil intentions,” Trump continued, before claiming that it is “very easy” for Muslims to enter the U.S. but “virtually impossible” for Christians.

Later in the program, Trump praised Russia’s intervention in Syria, claiming that “Russia’s been amazing in what they’re doing because they’re fighting to win.”

“I think it’s wonderful that they bomb ISIS and that it’s great,” Trump said, before hailing Putin for “really bombing the hell out of them.”

Of course, over 90 percent of Russian airstrikes in Syria have targeted anti-regime rebels rather than ISIS, and have, at times, even provided air cover for ISIS forces during their battles with rebel groups. ​

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
