I do not think that means what you think it means

Background: Jay Leno used the picture of a Sikh temple in a “Mitt Romney is rich” joke. Some Sikhs are upset, naturally, and for some reason their embassy is talking to the State Department about it. Like they have anything to do with anything. Are things really so slow in the US-India relations that they have time to discuss such things?

“Freedom does not mean hurting the sentiments of others… This is not acceptable to us and we take a very strong objection for such a display.”

So, what does freedom mean then? The freedom to only say things that could not possibly offend anyone? Good luck with that.

You know what, your definition of freedom offends me. Oh, burn.

Bonus quote:

Petition signatory Simran Kaur says: “Jay Leno must apologise and promise not to make any direct or oblique references to Sikhs or their places of worship.”
