Don't impose your morality onto me

Doublespeak.

"The danger I think is when the United States or any country thinks that we can simply impose these values on another country with a different history and a different culture," the president told the broadcaster.

But he stressed: "Democracy, rule of law, freedom of speech, freedom of religion -- those are not simply principles of the West to be hoisted on these countries, but rather what I believe to be universal principles that they can embrace and affirm as part of their national identity."


If I didn't know any better I would think he's saying that the United States cannot simply impose its values on another country unless President Obama believes those values (democracy, rule of law, freedom of religion, etc.) should be imposed on another country.

Talk about a major typo. Breitbart got the headline completely wrong: "Obama says US cannot impose its values."

...or did they? I dunno. I'll have to re-read it again.

Hi!

I am a servant of God on www.prophecyfilm.com and wish to beg you, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to please link to this wonderful site which has free glorious Prophecies & Revelations of Jesus and Mary from Saint Bridget in many languages!

We also have free videos for download on various catholic topics, and maybe hoped that you could tell your visitors and your family and friends! They are a bit further down on the page and are quite interesting. They are extremly good for catholics to strengthen their faith, for protestants to come to the true faith, and for atheists to see the scientific evidence of the Bible that proves God's existance. You are free to copy all videos and books on our site www.prophecyfilm.com to your site if you like them. Our videos can also be embedded! This can draw lots of brothers and sisters to your site. We know by experience. We hope you also read the revelations and watch our videos personally.

Here is a page with different banners we have made if you use those on your page.

For the greater glory of God!

Peace and God bless!

Once the United States became the "Police" of the world, imposing it's morality is the most logical next step it would seem. This morality as it would appear, is open to interpretation based on the reigning president. Do we not all want freedom of religion, speech and press? This seems basic. What else comes with it for a country unfamiliar with these things? Perhaps there are other countries that are simply not prepared for these rights, or they have their own version of them.
