Condi's Fatwa

The Secretary of State has had a confusing record in the past couple of days.

First she's going on about the "three-fifths" compromise in the Constitution.. Bad.

Next, she's coming out in favor of the Second Amendment. Good.

But this, this is really bad.

Mr. Chairman, before I begin my actual testimony, I want to speak directly to Muslims in America and throughout the world. Disrespect for the Holy Koran is not now, nor has it ever been, nor will it ever be, tolerated by the United States. We honor the sacred books of all the world's great religions. Disrespect for the Holy Koran is abhorrent to us all.

Remarks on Respect for the Holy Koran

She goes on about religious freedom, but it's obvious that this "freedom" is only for the "tolerant." Which usually means people who don't actually believe in their religion.

But let's get this straight: religious freedom includes the right to criticize other religions, to say that yours is true, and the others are false. And in a country where flag-burning is a civil right, and attacks on Christianity are considered nearly sacred by the left, the Secretary of State has no business trying to get Americans to respect the "Holy Koran."

Update:

Seems like the original reports of desecration of the Koran were false. Riots have resulted, and 16 people are dead, as the result of the media's willingness to believe anything anti-American.

In the meantime, Islamic countries don't seem to grasp that the US is a free country.
