Barack Obama: Christianist?

Here comes that Kryten moment for those on the left (Hi Andrew) who were sure that George Bush was going to impose a religious test for free speech:

While attracting surprisingly little attention, the Obama administration supported the effort of largely Muslim nations in the U.N. Human Rights Council to recognize exceptions to free speech for any “negative racial and religious stereotyping.” The exception was made as part of a resolution supporting free speech that passed this month, but it is the exception, not the rule that worries civil libertarians. Though the resolution was passed unanimously, European and developing countries made it clear that they remain at odds on the issue of protecting religions from criticism. It is viewed as a transparent bid to appeal to the “Muslim street” and our Arab allies, with the administration seeking greater coexistence through the curtailment of objectionable speech. Though it has no direct enforcement (and is weaker than earlier versions), it is still viewed as a victory for those who sought to juxtapose and balance the rights of speech and religion.

I guess all you folks who took that idiotic Blasphemy challenge (which doesn’t actually work by the way) better watch out for Eric Holder and not Benedict XVI or George Bush.

To steal a line from Glenn from who this comes… They told me that if I supported Sarah Palin that free speech would be suppressed in favor of religious speech and they were right!

If there was ever a time that we will find out if the Obamacult is real this is it.
