President Obama paid tribute to the four Americans slain this week in Libya and again tried to tamp down anti-American anger around the globe in his weekly radio address on Saturday.
“I have made it clear that the United States has a profound respect for people of all faiths. We stand for religious freedom. And we reject the denigration of any religion — including Islam,” the president said in the prerecorded remarks.

Bet this was a news bulletin for the religious bodies that object to the government’s edict that they must obey government rather than God in the matters of contraception and abortion coverage in their employee health plans.
He is such a liar.
Did he come out publically against Maher's Religulous?
Has he made any public comment ever about specific instances of people denigrating other religions besides Islam?
Not when that religion makes people fly planes into buildings believing that doing that looks good their god and gets them into their version of heaven.
Islam is disgusting. It isn’t peaceful. Any religion that converts at the edge of a sword, and threatens death if you try to leave it, is not one any thinking American can rationally support.
Just because they may not have enough clout to act that way here doesn’t mean sharia creep isn’t occurring and they do act like this in coutries where they have enough power to act that way and not get into trouble doing so.
I guess abortion does not figure into this equation?
Obama: Americans reject denigration of any religion including Islam
HEY !!! Obama !!!
Americans retain the right of free speech, which includes so called “denigration” of any religion including Islam..
i’m an American. and I DO denigrate some religions.
example, the bloody religion of the Aztecs.
...cutting the beating hearts out of thousands.
i do denigrate a religion,
that teaches hatred of Jews, teaches they are literally
descendants of pigs and apes.
i do denigrate a religion, that teaches the most perfect man, has sex with an age 9 girl, when he was 56
(and he “thighed” her, etc., for 3 years before that!!!).
i do denigrate a religion, that teaches it is ok to rape, kill, and lie to, anyone of ANY other religion.
...on top of which, Islam is seditious by definition, and should be banned.
If Obama really rejected denigration of any religion, he would turn down all campaign contributions from Bill Maher. But we all know that isn’t true.
Don't presume to speak for me butt boy.
islam is a death cult ... always has been - always will be.
There is no god called "Allah," and Mohammed is his false prophet. Piss be upon them.
**sniff sniff** - Is that sarcasm I smell?
Not this American, I denigrate islam every chance I get. I’ve said it before and I am happy to say it again, the only thing j want to hear out of a muslim is his last breath.
*the term "religion" excludes Evangelical Protestantism, conservative Catholicism, some branches of Orthodox Judaism, and on alternate weekends, Scientology.
This from the guy who is railroading and strong arming Catholics with his Healthcare law?
This from the guy who is crapping on Israel?
Yea, so he will get off the backs of Catholics and Christian churches forcing them to provide BC and abortions.
The good Muslims are the Islamist terrorists because they read and follow the teachings of the Qur’an.
The bad Muslims are the so called moderate Muslims because they don't follow their own “holy” (sarc) book.
For this reason I don't like ANY Muslims. I don't like terrorists and I don't like hypocrites.
Islam is a “made up” religion by a degenerate. Mohammad made Allah and Islam up. Why would anyone believe a guy like Mohamed? They probably didn't, they just liked the raping and pillaging.
Not this American.
FK Islam. Mohahommed and his Allah can go to hall and burn for all I care.
This dog eating Muslim does not speak for me.
Islam is not a religion, it is a killer cult.
I hate it when politicians try to say what America is or isn’t, what they like and what they don’t.
They speak for themselves and say American does this and that.Americans are individuals and Islam sucks.
A copy of that speech needs to be presented at every court challenge to Obamacare’s requirement about abortion and birth control by churches and businesses who object on religious grounds.
I don’t denigrate Islam, I criticize it. And since when has criticism of religions been prohibited?
When he returns the money and orders his PACs to refuse to support from Maher, Parker, and Stone, I will believe he means it...
There you go, Christian pro-lifers. Obama is telling you what it takes to get your way.
You must violently riot and kill upon any imagined slight.
I’d say abortion on demand qualifies. So, get to those clinics and start rioting. You’ll save millions of lives.
Smart Americans don’t regard Islam as a religion.
I’ve been saying on here for years that the reason the Left and others finds it easy to denigrate Christianity is that there is no danger in it. Maybe that should change? We used to be a very dangerous people. Just ask the Saracens, Turks, Vikings, Cathars, Levantines, Barbary pirates, etc.
Administrative Law Construction Lesson: When a term-of-art-class-descriptor such as "including" is used, it declares the creation of that term of art for the specified statement. Therefore, Obama actually, legally said (as head federal administrator):
"For the purposes of this statement, I am hereby legally defining a term of art class called "any religion." This term of art class includes the componant "Islam." As I have not used any form of the word "include" for anyything else, there are no other componants in this term of art class."
Construction is therefore: "Americans reject denigration of
any religion] including ONLY Islam."
In other words, right in front of everyone's face, the POTUS stated that:
Any religion in America may be denigrated except Islam.
That is the legal meaning of what he said - as the President of the US.
In Clintonian terms, that is the definition of "is," here.
No joke - this is actually what he said, actually means.
he has no respect whatsoever for Christianity and Judaism.
He wouldn’t be making us pay for the whoredoms of his followers.
What an hypocrite!
I wondered if anyone would catch that.
Running like a big chicken from a group of thugs that threaten to kill you over some stupid video is not respecting religion....its bowing down to thugs, and falling right into their trap. Obama is ignorant and incompetent in defending this country.
I think we could add Greek Orthodox to the list of traditional cultural Christians, but because they are not a large group, they tend to be ignored. However, they will certainly come under the guns of HHS Secretary Sibelius if Obama wins this election.
Obama is a lying sack of sh!t.
“Obama: Americans reject denigration of any religion including Islam”...............
It occurs to me that by his standards, he is telling the truth. He himelf is not an American, and he is pro-Islam since he was raised in that religion. So, he is telling the truth according to his Muslim understanding.
He notes the tolerance of various faiths, and sees it as good. Since he is not American, he does not need to live by these lofty goals. See, how sly he is?????
Islam is not a religion. It’s a theocracy.
