      Not really any different than Jesus's saying, "I am the way and the truth and the light; no one comes to the father except by me." All of the major religions (exception Buddhism?) tend to be anti-all-other-religions.
      If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

        Context matters. Jesus saying it is fine. Me saying it while trespassing isn't.

          "Only we're getting saved nya-nya" is just another form of tribalism.

                boiling pig fat will work just as well. Get it from a hot dog factory and hold it nearby all our ME embassies.

                  Context, shmontext. I would think the exact same thing of ANYONE storming our embassy and tearing down our flag, regardless of whether he's screaming "Allahu Akbar" or reciting from the phone book. The speech is insignificant when compared with the action.

                      News reports have a State Dept. official killed in the attack on the Libyan consulate.

                      If we get a repeat of 1979, is the administration toast?

                          3 dead, including the Ambassador in Libya. At least Clinton's latest statement isn't bending over and taking it in the *** like the statement from the Cairo Embassy.

                              In our society, no one is off-limits for insults, with the only exception being the very recently dead, but even that isn't really followed.
