    Does the Christian right also believe the White House should comment on every movie released? Let's face it, I've heard right wingers claim the last "Cars" movie had anti-business and Republican overtones.

    Certainly J-mac and you do.

    How the hell is it an apology, for the government to say "Hey We don't endorse a Islam being mocked in this manner" because the United States has a great deal more to gain by saying such a thing than they have to gain from ignorant islamophobes who associate the few violent muslims with the rest of them.

    That's then taken by far right wingers as "Apologizing to terrorists" when he's turning them into chicken Tika using drones every other week.

    I don't even know what universe you people live in... honestly.

    This isn't about apologies, this is about you being pissed off that there aren't more people sticking it to Islam because you have a problem with it, Obama administration in particular.
    IOW, you're ok with any religion being offended, as long as it's not Islam? Am I close?

    I can see why you'd get that from what I said.

    But that's not the case.

    Personally I hate people who are too touchy about their religion.

    But at the same time I also don't see the point in making fun of someones religion just to be a dick either.

    I think it's one thing to make fun of something to be funny, another to be a jackass.

    But all in all I think the people who lost their **** over the film are as idiotic as the people who get offended by piss christ.

    In terms of international diplomacy the Obama administration did the only sane thing it could given the situation.

    You're going to disagree.

    That's fine.

    But there's a reason you'd never make it in the diplomatic Corp.

    Only when radical Islam is offended comes the flood of apologies. That's Obama's way, but everybody knows that by now, so it's no surprise really.
    You have been posting on here for the last 2 weeks defending free speech and the right that guy had to make that movie and now another American attacks Christainity this time you want the Obama admin to express their outrage? * mind is blown

    Aren't there laws against the ill-approved containment of specimens when the storage of potentially contagion carrying bodily fluids could potentially come into contact with the public.

    It's a photograph darling. Piss Christ is a photograph.

    The reason is because there is a very obvious double standard at play here which as nothing to do with free speech but rather the fact that Obama and his Administration bend over backwards to appease the Islamists but he couldn't care less about any appeasing comments when the Christians are offended.

    Dameon Hurst and his shark comes to mind. Also the US flag made out of human skin.

    Piss Christ was over 20 years ago. Some of the shock might have worn off.
