Why isn't Obama taking Muslim countries to task over their stance on homosexuality?

They're next, along with the Christian regions of Sub-Saharan Africa. Break Putin and they'll be cranky pushovers, but they'll give in the end to what is right.

I really don't mind breaking this to you, but I'd be willing to wager that far more folk who actually matter in the grand scheme of things care more about what the President has to say than what you do. These laws scattered around Asia and Africa, do you really know where they actually came from? Most aren't actually home grown, they were for the most part, hold-overs from colonial rule. The British and the French wrote some classics in the late 1890's that they exported to their colonies around the world. For most populations around the world, while their religious beliefs can be said to prohibit the "act", they rarely went that far as to take it out on those supposedly guilty of it. Anti-gay hate, was at first, a European import, but since the 1980's, primarily an American made product.

Obama is not going to break Putin and Putin will soon have Egypt in the palm of his hand.

Obama will not be able to break Putin. Putin has no respect for Obama and will soon take control of Egypt. No one in Egypt likes Obama.

Homosexuality is condemned by Islam and that began in the 7th century. Obama is to scared of offending Muslims to tell them they are wrong about homosexuality.

It's August and while it may cause a few unavoidable logistics problems, it isn't too late to strong arm the IOC into doing the right thing and sending the Olympics to the first venue that can guarantee them that they'd be ready for them. Putin will break, your valued opinion to the contrary.

I doubt Putin will break.

What would Obama do to get the IOC to move the Olympics? Obama does not have much standing in the world.

Wow........Is the President really going to let progressive social engineering impede a vital relationship with a World Power?

Doesn't he have someone with any foreign policy experience to at least make him consider the potentially negative consequences???

Heavens to Betsy Murgatroyd, we certainly don't want to upset all the delicate Russian Babushka's (of both sexes) by having them see men kissing, holding hands, fellating, copulating, engaging in water sports and toilet training on Nevsky Prospect in broad daylight or, worse, lesbians and their outlandish fashion accessories (chains, whips and Harley Davidsons etc). Oh for the good old days of the Soviet Union when men were real men and women were real women and dogs were real dogs and pigs were real swine!! Anyone for resurrecting Leonid Brezhnev?

Naw. It is dishonest to say that ANY previous President was consumed with Social Engineering. All previous Presidents understood that in America that is NOT the job of the Govt. The whole Orwellian nightmare is pure Obama.
