In The McAllister Minute on September 19, 2012 at 11:14 am
In the September 19 version of “The McAllister Minute”, Lenny notes that the outrage over alleged disrespect is hollow as respect for cultural sensitivities is only genuine when it is mirrored with the respect for human life during non-combative strife.
“While we continue to honor the memory and service of slain US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the others killed in the embassy attack overseas, we must remember the tenets of honorable global engagement that we hold dear as the greatest democracy the world has ever seen.
“Yet, while others may choose to focus on the sophomoric film that allegedly sparked the Muslim outrage throughout the Middle East over the past several days, the only way to honor the essence of freedom – for Americans and our global neighbors across the world – is to recall a key element within the concept of honor and respect. Simply: honor and respect is a 2-way street.
“True freedom balances cultural sensitivities with the right to free speech and expression. True freedom tempers our disgust for repugnant perspectives on social issues and stances with respect for human life. True freedom confronts conflict with contemplation, not cold-blooded killing by a select few hoping to reverse the tide of democracy. And when a response to Americans working to support freedom throughout the world is mind-bending terrorism and heinous acts of murder by a select few, it is freely open for the world to see…that some still battle against the hopes of democracy…that these enemies will corrupt the overall message of living for peace and justice for the glory of God…trading that faith walk for the sake of conducting misconstrued jihad.”
“Rebellion and outrage without moral authority is anarchy.”
