During his speech to the United Nations today, President Obama explained that free speech was an important value to the United States.

“Like me the majority of Americans are Christian,” Obama noted, explaining that the United States does not ban blasphemy.

“As president of our country and commander in chief of our military, I accept that people are going to call me awful things every day,” Obama said. “And I will always defend their right to do so.”
