    Where's Rick Monday when you need him?

    We responded in the harshest possible way... with an apology:

    What's the movie, or is that completely made up?

    The only one I can think of is the Ben Affleck movie that's coming out later this year about the Iranian hostage crisis.

    That can't be it though. Gotta be something else.

    Maybe they just saw Gigli, then. Understandable reaction.

    Supposedly the Koran burning pastor from Florida has some movie out -- which I'm sure has been seen by a handful of people.

    Can they just get over themselves already? Every religion in the world and its symbols are satirized, mocked, made fun of and otherwise not treated with reverential respect. I don't recall Catholics rioting over the photo of a crucifix in a jar of piss.

    Apparently they can't. Or won't.

    What is the US apologizing for? What a bizarre quote.

    The embassy in Benghazi in Libya has also been stormed, apparently because of the film.

    So the son of a Hamas leader announces in Jerusalem that he will make a film about the prophet and the minions of the religion of peace storm American embassies?

    Ummm... Ok.

    It might be an Egyptian Copt activist living in the U.S. with ties to the Quran-burning attention-craving pastor in Florida.
