Obama: religious violence has no place in US

US President Barack Obama pauses for a moment as he speaks at an Easter Prayer Breakfast at the White House in Washington, DC on April 14, 2014President Barack Obama warned Monday that religious violence had no place in US society after a gunman with alleged anti-Semitic ties killed three people at a Jewish center and retirement home. No one should have to fear for their safety when they go to prayer,” Obama said at the White House, a day after the shooting in Kansas. Alleged gunman Frazier Glenn Cross, now in custody, was a former Ku Klux Klan leader and had a history of anti-Semitism, said the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which tracks hate groups. He reportedly yelled “Heil Hitler” as police escorted him away in Kansas City on Sunday.
