Message from the White House:
“The United States Embassy in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,”
Message from my house:
"Anyone who kills Americans because their feelings are hurt is an idiot and deserves to be atomized by an American un-manned drone. Suck it up people."
Why can't the president say this?
Modern blasphemers are legion in our country. We endure them daily. The band "Bad Religion" is as good and as popular as any punk band in American history. Their logo hurts my feelings every day. (Yes, I see it somewhere everyday.)
Black Metal bands like Dimmu Borgir make a living with sacrilege that also hurts my feelings (if less often.) Then there's Madonna.
All this hurts my feelings. It's all anti-Christian and directed at conservative believers. And of course we suck it up instead of suffocating people to death.
It would be nice someday to have a leader that knows the difference between right and wrong and isn't afraid to be stay strong in the face of people that act like animals.
And isn't this more of the "pursuit of the perfect at the expense of the good? We'll never mollify Muslim extremists, but we might die trying.
