Oh yes. He said that. President Obama uttered that remark in his echo-filled (and befuddling hot mess) of a speech Wednesday night. Right after he said “ISIL is not Islamic.” And before he then blathered about Ebola or something.
Quick Twitter users pointed a little something out to the president, who apparently has his head in the sand always.

@cnni this brand of Islam condones killing innocents, so there are religions that approve of such a thing.

"No religion condones the killing of innocents." "[multiple counterexamples]" "No TRUE religion, I mean." "There aren't any true religions."

Obama: "No religion condones the killing of innocents." Perhaps, but not all religions consider those outside the faith to be "innocents."

How ignorant is he? A special kind.
It really does take a special kind of ignorance to claim that "[n]o religion condones the killing of innocents."

And an excellent exit point:
Best tweet all day: RT .@Aaron_RS Obama is the living caricature the left claimed Bush to be.
