Why Burn The Qur'an--That's Just Stupid!

When I first heard about a Pastor in Florida planning to burn the Qur'an today I was shocked and angry. I haven't heard if he went through with it or not, but I certainly hope he did not. I obviously am not Muslim but certainly people have the freedom to believe whatever religion they want without being persecuted for it. To purposely stir things up by burning the Qur'an serves no good purpose but wcould likely put a lot of lives at risk. This kind of foolishness by a Pastor is what gives Christianity a bad name. This is why I was angry when I read about this.

I discovered this video through Twitter yesterday and thought it was so good that I decided to post it here. I thought it was very well done and is a great reminder of what it means to be an American.

This is actually a good example that they were extremists and "crazies" in EVERY religion and in atheism too! I heard he didn't go through with it. Thankfully!

Book burning of any kind is "stupid"

Melly, Glad to hear he didn't go through with it. Thanks for letting us know.

Old Geezer: I agree!

Yep, it was a stupid idea and stupid people like him should never have got as much attention as he did. We need more attention focused on those who spread acceptance, peace and love for one another!

I think it's dumb to burn the Quran, too, but hey it's better than strapping bombs to your torso and setting them off on public buses like some folks in *other* religions. What's very sad is that Muslims in other countries not only burn Bibles, they burn Christians alive for their beliefs. I don't see why the media doesn't give that kind of craziness more attention. It's all very slanted.
