Against Denigration of Religion? Yeah, Right.
Muslim outrage over an amateurish trailer for a probably non-existent video coincides with an ongoing hit Broadway play ridiculing the Mormon Church, the reappearance of the once government-subsidized Piss Christ photos, and so on. When the administration apologizes for the excess of a private individual, but ignores condemnation of far more widely disseminated similar venom, some of it sponsored by the U.S. government, it is making a policy statement -- we dare not tamper with free speech unless it touches upon Islam, not out of principle but because of sheer cowardice.
