WASHINGTON: US Senator John Kerry said on Thursday that religious intolerance is an insult to everybody and condemned senseless intolerance exhibited in the anti-Islam video following a meeting.
Senator Kerry made the remarks following an hour-long meeting with Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar and Ambassador Sherry Rehman on Capitol Hill. Other members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee also attended the meeting.
All of us in the US, all of us condemn this senseless intolerance exhibited by the video which very few Americans have seen. We feel it is without any legitimacy, any potential redeeming quality. It is an insult to everybody, said Senator Kerry.
He added that no religion deserves disrespect, and that the US was founded on the principles of tolerance that everyone needs to work towards. Senator Kerry added that there was no room for violent reactions to the film...

This is Mr. Obama's next Secretary of State, btw.
Any comments on this, John?
Controversial ‘Piss Christ’ art back in NY
Was John Kerry in favor of religious intolerance....before he was against it?
Yeah, Kerry, but that rape and murder of our gay ambassador was perfectly justified right? </sarcasm>
You know, with all these dems bleating about religious “tolerance”, how can they ever play the Mormon card against Romney now?
Well, he’s 100% right.
And which religion is completely intolerant of all other religions?
Can someone please help me? C’mon anyone; I seem to have forgotten.
Did he conclude this while serving in Vietnam? There was a rumor he had...served there I mean.
Guess the only ‘religion’ he’s referring to is ISLAM. Other than that....Jews, Catholics, Buddhists, Mormons, Hindus, and Christians can take a hike.
Did you serve in Vietnam, BTW??? Seems like someone told me that. MANY times.
The far left sure are co-joining with the Islamonazis, are they not?
Bill Maher? Rosie O’Donnell? The Book of Mormon play? Piss Christ? The Chick Fil A demonizers? Will Kerry now denounce those?
The ‘rats cry about tolerance, but the leftist governments in the last 100 years have killed more than 150 million of their own citizens, mostly successful businesmen and farmers. The same class warfare Zer0 perpatuates.
The only “Swift boat” that John Kerry acknowledges is the sailboat in Rhode Island to avoid taxes in the state that he alledgely represents (Mass./ R.I.).
Obviously Kerry doesn’t know the difference between ‘common law’ and ‘Sharia law’.
Nor does he acknowledge that Islam is as much a political force (think Caliphate) as it is a religious force (think Mosque / minarette ).
Actually , .. he should be “Swift-Booted”
Unless of course it’s Catholics or other Christians.
I’m no expert, but I don’t think that apology counts if Kerry does not have his highjabber on.
[ha] I said High Jabber On. And Kerry in the same sentence.
He’s probably been high a lot and he does jabber on.
So the HHS mandate is off then, is it?
You can afford to be narrow-minded when you are correct.
Kerry has not yet had that experience.
. . . in proportion to the magnitude of the subject [there must] be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that [you] can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should [you] keep back [your] opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, [you] should consider [your]self as guilty of treason towards my country[!]
Does that apply to the Catholic Church and its right to deny contraception?
Pray for America
