    BBC News - Merkel honours Danish Muhammad cartoonist Westergaard

    If only we had an American president in the last 20 years who understood this.

    Don't worry. We will have a President who will understand things like this when Sarah Palin takes the Oath in 2012. She is a patriotic fine American who is a Natural Born Citizen that meets Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the Constitution unlike Obama who does not meet the qualifications of it.

    I do wish Obama made a better statement than he did. The great orator? :doubt:

    So long as political correctness rules the day in this country it will never happen.

    There is nothing in the constitution that guarantees the right not to be offended.

    To be fair, I haven't read this whole interview yet just saw some articles with quotes.

    President Obama to Pastor Jones: 'Stunt' Endangers Troops ? Full Transcript of Exclusive Interview - George Stephanopoulos' Bottom Line


    I'd like if he remembered that it's not just the US press corp who are listening...It would be nice to see him admonish against the possible violent outburst, not just admonish the minister, and stress our history in the context of freedom of religion and expression.

    LOL now that's funny!!

    In Germany if you publiclly deny the Holocaust happened or publish words of doubt about the official Holocaust story.

    You will be convicted as a criminal and sent to prison as several people already have been.

    So much for Free Speech in Germany :lol:

    I don't agree with that myself, but I do think they have a reason to remember that part of their history. I think that makes it justified, for them.

    The German people are forced by law to accept the "Official" story concerning the so called Holocaust.

    I wonder how Americans would react if we were forced under threat of prison to accept 100% the Warren Report about the Kennedy assassination ?
