Check out this funny item – brought to my attention by Newt Gingrich (emphasis added):
The Obama administration may have adopted a formula that will come back to haunt it.
In an effort to appease religious elements in Afghanistan it has established a standard that could become a major defeat for secular extremists here in America.
In response to Afghan outrage over the inadvertent Koran burnings by the U.S. Military in February, the Obama Defense Department created a mandatory training for military service members in the region. It is entitled, “Proper handling and disposal of Islamic Religious Materials: Service Members/Civilian Training.”
The most fascinating slide is the last one. There the Obama administration asserts: “We will hold sacred the beliefs held sacred by others.”
Apparently to President Obama, the sacred beliefs of Islam in Afghanistan must be held sacred by the U.S. government, but Christianity in America is a nuisance to be reshaped by ObamaCare, the courts and the bureaucracy with no regard for its beliefs.
