    So you truly believe that these fools/criminals would not have committed murder if the President had not apologized? Think about that.

    I guess I don't have as big a problem with us holding ourselves to a higher standard as some of us do. I'm neither looking for nor expecting an apology.

    Would it make a difference anyway?

    That's not what I said. IMVHO by apologizing Obama gave credence to the position of the rioters.

    If a soldier accidentally burned a Bible would Mr. Obama issue and apology to American Christians?

    Correct. Why should he apologize? How is it similar ?

    Because the Bible is as sacred to some of us as the Quran is to Muslims.

    So he shouldn't apologize if a Bible was burned?

    It shouldn't be necessary.

    I would have agreed until now. Just curious as why you feel it shouldn't be necessary.

    Who was offended? How does it hurt national interests? Does it have a potential impact on our soldiers? Are we worried that a right-wing Christian group is going to strike at us?
