White House aides are still trying to explain President Obama’s controversial prayer breakfast speech after he reminded Christians that they “committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”

Now an anonymous White House aide is trying to clarify the speech as the controversy continues to spread.

“What he wanted to do is take on perversions of religions that are out there,” a senior White House adviser told the New York Times, which granted the person anonymity to discuss the issue. “He wanted to make the point that this isn’t the first time we’ve seen faith perverted and it won’t be the last.”

According to the New York Times, the aide also explained that Obama wanted to be provocative in his remarks to put the brutality of Islamic State terrorists into historical perspective.
