The Embassy of the United States 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. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.
Despite this apology, the embassy was attacked by a mob of angry Muslims anyway.
This is an absolutely stunning apology issued by the Cairo embassy, both for apologizing to those committing acts of indefensible violence, and for its plain dishonesty. Most conservatives are rightfully upset that an apology should be issued to any group perpetuating such acts of violence against an American consulate, no matter the reason, but what isn’t being mentioned by the same conservatives is that our government certainly isn’t in the business of respecting the feelings of religious people. Our government certainly didn’t condemn God being booed at the Democratic National Convention, did it?
It is clear that Obamathink was at play here, wherein Muslims must be treated with kid-gloves, even when they commit reprehensibly uncivil and violent acts in the name of their religion, all in the interests of protecting Muslim “feelings”. Liberals are afraid to hurt the feelings of people who routinely torture and murder others who don’t agree with their religious beliefs? It really defies all common sense. Are we to believe that government liberals are against any and all criticisms of Islam?
What’s more, on the other hand peaceful and civil Catholics, who abide by a moral code that abhors violence, are the constant recipients of barrage after barrage of anti-Catholic bigotry because the same Catholics dare not agree with being forced to pay for another person's artificial contraception and abortions, and refuse to accept the gay "marriage" agenda of the Left.
Our government isn’t interested in the "feelings" of all religious people, because time after time our government scoffs at the Catholic conviction that artificial contraception is intrinsically evil, that the homosexual act is intrinsically evil, and that abortion is intrinsically evil. Catholic "feelings" don't even register a feint blimp on the Obamathink radar.
We are living in an upside-down world of one liberal contradiction after another.
