Theres more to this than meets the eye: Heres the video of Republican Trent Franks trying to get an answer: DOJ Official Refuses to Affirm 1st Amendment Rights In House Hearing - 7/27/12 - YouTube This issue is one more important reason why Americans should place withdrawing from the United Nations at the top of their priorities list: DOJ won't promise to protect free speech Spokesman refuses congressman's question over and over Published: 11 hours ago by BOB UNRUH DOJ wont promise to protect free speech Clarification: Defamation is United Nations-speak for criticism. Why wont the administration answer the question? The answer is a big surprise if youre an idiot. Hussein & Company support the concept. The reason is obvious. Islamic countries are theocracies; so criminalizing Defamation of Religions automatically criminalizes defamation of government. Worse still, anyone that criticizes an imam or ayatollah will be punished. You have only to look at internationalists on the US Supreme Court to know they will cover clerics under this International law faster than any other. I am only curious as to why a UN law has not been put into a UN treaty? Oh well, I should be thanking the good Lord for small favors. At least Hussein has not written an executive order making Defamation of Religions US law. You can take this to the bank: From Islams perspective its all about attracting converts. If you doubt me ask yourself how long it will take for every murdering, child molesting, pervert in the world to convert to Islam? Once the perverts are protected the masses too frightened to speak out will convert. A mind-numbed flock do not have to be true believers so long as they obey without squawking. NOTE: The only requirements for a Muslim to be an imam is memorizing a few parts of the Quran and be of good character. No doubt Jerry Sandusky and Joe Paterno are men of good character as are all of the Roman Catholic pedophile priests who got caught, but at least they were criticized and punished. Anybody who supports this United Nations law protects evil clerics from punishment. Parenthetically, those non-Christians who love to cite Torquemada and the Spanish Inquisition as the epitome of Christian evil better take a good look at what Muslims in the United Nations are setting in motion. Finally, the Defamation of Religions law is also an attack on freedom of the press. Im fairly certain no theocracy is going to allow the press to criticize religion/government. Call it poetic justice, or call it the chickens coming home to roost, but the press always supported every piece of garbage Democrats and the United Nations came up with. Now that media necks are being fitted for nooses it will be interesting to see if they object to Husseins moral guidance on this one.
