Secretary Clinton Delivers Powerful Religion Speech After Middle East Embassy Attacks – Yahoo! News

In her remarks, Clinton repeated much of what she’s said in the last two days. Namely that the Benghazi attack was carried out by a “small and savage group,” and that the United States completely rejects what she called the “inflammable and despicable” anti-Muslim film circulating the Internet. However, Clinton pointed out all religions have faced insults and denigration, but that’s no justification for violence. The response to such insults is what separates people of true faith from those who would use religion as an excuse to commit violent acts, she said.

“When Christians are subject to insults to their faith, and that certainly happens, we expect them not to resort to violence. When Hindus or Buddhists are subjected to insults to their faiths, and that also certainly happens, we expect them not to resort to violence,” said Clinton. “The same goes for all faiths, including Islam.”

She spoke movingly about her own personal beliefs as a way of re-enforcing her point.

“I so strongly believe that the great religions of the world are stronger than any insults. They have withstood offense for centuries,” said Clinton.”Refraining from violence, then, is not a sign of weakness in one’s faith; it is absolutely the opposite, a sign that one’s faith is unshakable.”

AMEN SECRETARY CLINTON! I just said the same thing when this was first reported! The violence stemming from so-called insults to Islam is childish behavior! I believe Sigmund Freud broke it down to our ID’s…these fools are stuck in their 2 year old ID!
