Correction: Do You Miss Me Now Edition

Earlier in a comment, I misattributed the following quote to Barack Obama. The correct attribution is below. Keepin' It Real Yo regrets the error.

"Islam is a vibrant faith. Millions of our fellow citizens are Muslim. We respect the faith. We honor its traditions. Our enemy does not. Our enemy doesn't follow the great traditions of Islam. They've hijacked a great religion."
Remarks by President George W. Bush on U.S. Humanitarian Aid to Afghanistan

Bush was wrong, anyway. We don't "respect" Islam. We respect people's right to observe it. But we do not respect the religion itself and we don't have to in order to "be" Americans.
