Obama in Cairo: Religious freedom

CAIRO, Egypt (CNN) - "Among some Muslims, there's a disturbing tendency to measure one's own faith by the rejection of somebody else's faith," President Obama said.

"The richness of religious diversity must be upheld - whether it is for Maronites in Lebanon or the Copts in Egypt. And if we are being honest, fault lines must be closed among Muslims, as well, as the divisions between Sunni and Shia that have led to tragic violence, particularly in Iraq."
