Obama Calls To End Catholic Schools In N. Ireland Because They "Cause Division"

The 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.”

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.
Now, I won't defend the RCC because it is not a biblically legitimate church. That said, Obama's hostility toward another religion other than Islam is quite telling.
Let's not forget he himself went to a Catholic school in Indonesia for at least three grades. He seemed over the years to take pride in his experience in Indonesia. What division is he talking about?
What he fails to recognize is that Islam, the political religion he continues to support in various ways, not the least and most recent of that of the Taliban in Afghanistan and Al-Qaeda in Syria. Yes, let's talk about the division of that political-religion.
Better yet, let's talk about Obama's socialism and how he is dividing this country by race and economic wars. He's a master at the us/them, me/you division.
