Not quite right if I might be a little picky?
There is a god that has spent countless millennium’s spewing hate and terror.
The god of this world, a god that if given at chance will have you believing that “it” is the real God!
No disrespect to my president because he is right, if it is of God it is Love not Hate!

Let there be no mistake my friends,
that believes God, Allah, Jehovah, Kiehtan (all the same “Supreme Being”)
is anything other than pure love is
That said, God will only tolerate your abuse of this love for so long.
The time is coming when those that so chose to twist that ‘LOVE” and abuse it will pay dearly!
Those are not my words, you that are doing this, check your history!
President Barack Obama on Thursday condemned those who seek to use religion as a rationale for carrying out violence around the world.
“No god condones terror,” he said.
“We are summoned to push back against those who would distort our religion for their nihilistic ends,” Obama said at the National Prayer Breakfast.
He singled out the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, calling the militants a “death cult,” as well as those responsible for last month’s attacks in Paris and deadly assault on a school in Pakistan.
Obama offered a special welcome to a “good friend,” the Dalai Lama, seated at a table in front of the dais among the audience of 3,600.
Earlier Obama, from the head table, pressed his hands together in a prayer-like position and bowed his head toward the Dalai Lama, then gave him a wave and a broad smile.
It was the first time the president and the Tibetan Buddhist leader attended the same public event.
China objects to foreign leaders meeting with the Dalai Lama because of his quest for greater Tibetan autonomy from Beijing.
Obama’s three previous meetings with the Dalai Lama have been private because of the sensitivity of the situation.
But in a show of White House support for the Dalai Lama, he sat at a table with Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Actor Richard Gere, a friend and follower of the Dalai Lama, was nearby. Outside, hundreds of demonstrators banged drums and waved Tibetan flags under heavy police presence.
The Dalai Lama fled to exile in India after a failed 1959 Tibetan uprising against Chinese rule. Obama called him “a powerful example of what it means to practice compassion and who inspires us to speak up for the freedom and dignity of all human beings.”
The president joked that it’s a rare event that can bring together the Dalai Lama and NASCAR, after retired driver and commentator Darrell Waltrip gave the keynote address. Waltrip told how he had accepted Jesus Christ as his savoir after a 1993 crash left him wondering what would happen if he died.
“If you’ve never gotten on your knees and asked him to forgive you of your sins, you’re just a pretty good guy or a pretty good gal? You’re going to go to hell,” Waltrip said.
Obama had a more nondenominational message for the audience that also included prominent leaders of
