First I see that Obama releases a video where he says "Since our founding, the United States is a state that protects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others."

Then I read that the NEA funded Piss Christ is coming to Brooklyn.

How do you explain that timing?

He hasn't done much to protect Christianity; is protection of religion the role of government?

Hate to say it, but I'm a bit of a Bush man about this.

"The Muslim world erupted in anger on Friday over caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published in Europe while the Bush administration offered the protesters support, saying of the cartoons, “We find them offensive, and we certainly understand why Muslims would find these images offensive.” . . .

The State Department spokesman, Sean McCormack, reading the government’s statement on the controversy, said, “Anti-Muslim images are as unacceptable as anti-Semitic images,” which are routinely published in the Arab press, “as anti-Christian images, or any other religious belief.”

Still, the United States defended the right of the Danish and French newspapers to publish the cartoons. “We vigorously defend the right of individuals to express points of view,” Mr. McCormack added."

You know we're going to do it again, right?

why don't you ask the pentagon - they are funding some crazy shit - orchestration of iconographic events may come under that heading.
