1. The disgusting photo is very insulting to devout Christians in this country as well as others, just as this simple, low budget youtube video is insulting to Muslims.
2. We have free speech in this country to do this, that is what the SCOTUS upheld, however, the Obama administration felt it necessary to publicly march the maker of the video out under Sheriff parade for the camera's they said for questioning, and then asked youtube if they would reconsider pulling the video (a clear attempt to censor) to which youtube said no, good for them. Are they asking Seranno to not display his trash?
3. Obama's administration has made a point of shaping his policy in the ME based on appeasement, and deference to their sensibilities, where as here in the US he has made it a point to dismiss Christians, bully Christians, and now he has the chance to show that he is even handed in his condemnation of insulting productions by Americans, and will he? no, and you will dismiss that unequal treatment in any way you can.
So why put out an apology commercial to Pakistan then?Congress made a law regarding a the National Endowment on the Arts the US Supreme Court ruled that it was constitutional.
You are conflating into an argument that which has not been argued by me. That is a strawman argument sir.That ruling was in 1998. Why on earth would Obama or any president comment on this in his official capacity?
Ah, but that is just it, there are those that see nothing wrong with Sharia being instituted in the US, including those sitting on the SC bench that tend to look outside the constitution to arrive at their decisions.Sharia law is not the law of the land in the US so the answer is no.
Oh Please! are you really trying to say that his offensive photo was done because he understands Christianity? And if he were Muslim, he would have possibly offended Islam in the same manner? Do us a favor, and don't insult our intelligence please.And given that Serranos has a Christian background, not a Muslim one, it would make little sense for him to comment on that which he does not know.
Then you better look to Obama, and the liberal, progressive left first and foremost. It is Obama's foreign policy that is melting down in front of our eyes. It is Obama that is bullying the Christian faiths forcing them to provide things against their religious tenants. For liberal progressives, and Obama, everything is political, and in bounds.I think people need to stop dragging their politics in to this. Even though its presidential election season, not EVERYTHING is about politics.
The pill law applies to Muslim organizations as well.Then you better look to Obama, and the liberal, progressive left first and foremost. It is Obama's foreign policy that is melting down in front of our eyes. It is Obama that is bullying the Christian faiths forcing them to provide things against their religious tenants. For liberal progressives, and Obama, everything is political, and in bounds.
