Obama speaks the following during the prayer breakfast:

Lest 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. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.

And then the high horsemen wheel their cavalry around for attack.  Here and here are links to quality writing on the over-the-top reaction to the “mild” remarks by the president.
