National Association of Evangelicals Grieves Embassy Violence

From here:

The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) grieves the tragic and senseless deaths of innocent representatives of the U.S. government at the embassy in Libya. Tuesday’s violence in Libya, and other areas, is reported to be sparked by an offensive film about Islam. The film’s origins have not been verified.

“Very few Americans knew anything about this film until the violence started,” said Leith Anderson, NAE President. “This insulting video does not represent the vast majority of Americans who desire to live at peace with people of other faiths.”

The attack has been condemned by both the U.S. and Libya governments. The NAE joins together in humble prayer for the victims’ families and for peace and justice in the region. The NAE calls its members to continue in efforts that build stronger relationships of understanding between those of different faiths.

Anderson said, “How should the people of the world respond to this video? Don’t watch it.”

    Oh believe me, I don’t give the movie a second thought. One might produce a video with Mohammad sporting a tutu and a red Santa Claus hat, and I couldn’t care less that it was produced or shown or promoted.

    The only thing I notice about the movie is all the handwringing about *the consequences of free speech* in Muslim Jihad land, which is that people are murdered and that other people who should know better are pointing wildly at a red herring, mainly a silly buffoonishly comical movie, which is supposed to be “the reason” why people were murdered.

    What a disgrace.
