Following days of angry protests and bloody street violence in Vatican City, Barack Obama humbly apologized to the Pope and said it was never his administration's intention to dishonor the holy book of Catholics and that he would be implenting harsh punishments for anyone in his chain of command found responsible.
Just kidding! As we all know, last week Barack Obama actually told the Pope, disgruntled Catholics, and supporters of Constitutional freedom of religion to take a flying f*ck at a rolling doughnut.
Which is why it seems such a startling contrast to see the president making multiple apologies to screaming, violent Islamists for an incident in which military personnel in Afghanistan mistakenly burned a few copies of the Koran. Suddenly, this guy is Mister Religious Sensitivity.
And while there's nothing wrong with an initial apology, Hope n' Change is pretty unhappy about the fact that Obama is continuing to make apologies even after multiple people, including two US service members, have been killed in brutal anti-American violence.
Analysts fear that Obama's continuing apologies are actually serving to make the violence worse by reaffirming that the incident was a big deal, while simultaneously showing weakness instead of resolve when our troops are attacked and murdered.
But of course, even though Obama is still sending out his emissaries to attack the Catholic Church (including Nancy Pelosi, who is telling Catholics to ignore the Pope and instead pray for Obamacare), we never really expected him to stand up to radical Islamists.
After all, if he considers the Islamic call to prayer to be one of the prettiest sounds on Earth, he probably also enjoys the sweet sound of anti-American riots.
