Religious Leaders Denounce Planned Koran Burning Event

September 3, 2010 by  

Religious leaders denounce planned Koran burning event Florida pastor Terry Jones has announced he will hold a Koran burning event on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks next weekend. To counter the increasingly negative image of Islam and Muslims in America — which some experts say contributes to initiatives such as the one spearheaded by Jones — one organization has unveiled a public service announcement (PSA) campaign.

Fox News reported that the controversial pastor — who heads Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville — also cited the Fort Hood massacre as well as honor killings to further motivate his decision to hold the event.

"These are things that, if we don’t stand up now, they can increase," he said, quoted by the news source.

However, the planned burning has been condemned by many political and religious leaders in Florida and across the country. For example, The Christian Pastors’ Association of North Central Florida (CPA) denounced the event and stressed its support for religious freedom for all Americans, according to Gainesville.com.

Moreover, The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held a news conference in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday to present its new national PSA. The campaign’s videos show Muslims who worked or volunteered as first responders following the attacks of 9/11.

The overarching theme will be "9/11 happened to us all."ADNFCR-1961-ID-19934603-ADNFCR

    This is definitely not the best way to be a good citizen of the U
    SA. Spread the gospel of Jesus Christ by your actions in your daily life so others can see that you are sincere and committed to living a Christ like life.

    • http://yahoo.com Fear GOD, not man!-James White

      Walter, Yes we should live like Christ Jesus! Anger is not a good thing, but, there is such a thing as ‘Righteous Anger”! Remember what Jesus did in His Temple? Overturning the tables of people using HIS Temple as their ‘store’ and rebuking the moneychangers? That’s what WE NEED to do! Do not let them convert our country into another ‘Sodom and Gomorrah’. Islam is against the most important of Gods laws- “Thou shalt have NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME!” Anyone that is not a follower of Jesus is probably supporting this crap, because they don’t know the Truth (Jesus)! The koran (islam bible) tells them to kill ANYONE who doesn’t believe the way they do! Jesus says to LOVE our fellow man, as He loves us! tHAT’S THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT- lOVE! More muslims than ever are coming to Christ in droves today, and we, as Christians need to disciple all nations and languages as Jesus has commanded us in Matthew 28:19-20! Teaching them to observe ALL things He has commanded, and remember, He is with us ALWAYS, even til the end of the age!

        If this lunatic minister goes through with his plan to burn copies of the Koran, he will get the publicity that appears to crave but he will also lessen the chances that millions of people around the world will ever find Jesus. Muslim extremists will say that he represents Christianity when ther truth is that most Christians deplore what he is planning to do. I worked just a few blocks from Ground Zero and lost good friends there. I also have good friends who are Islamic and lead very moral, exemplary lives. They also hate what was done on 9/11. There is only one God and if we call him our Heavenly Father, Yaweh or Allah, it is still the same God. This minister will keep thousands, perhaps millions from finding Jesus. He should be ashamed. Perhaps he too needs to find the real Jesus and not some pathetic excuse for hatred.

        • tlludwig

          “There is only one God and if we call him our Heavenly Father, Yaweh or Allah, it is still the same God.” Thats where you are wrong. These Gods are not the same. The “God” of the muslim religion is not the same God of Christianity. Muslims believe “Allah” is the one true God and believe that Jesus was only a prophet. Christians believe that Christ is the son of God and is Lord and Savior.

  • ArizonaPatriot

    Why is it that when a Muslim mob punishes a child for stealing bread by driving over his arm or when a father kills his daughter in an “honor” killing, we say “oh, it’s just those silly muslims again”, but when we burn a copy of the Koran in protest to their uncivilized lunacy, we are racist and unamerican???? It is time that we all go out and “burn a koran” to express our dissatisfaction for what muslims and their supposed religion is doing to out countries freedoms and beliefs. My freedom of speech is just as valid as CAIR’s. maybe even more valid since they are terrorist co-conspiritirs. The old saying “if you don’t like America, go home” is certainly appropriate here.

    • Norm

      Two wrongs don’t make a right. Burning books is infantile and totally unproductive.

      • Brad

        Normy,

        In muslim countries they rape/kill christians, they burn their churches, where were you? Get your head out of the sand, I don’t condone the burning of a book but what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

        • eddie47d

          Brad,and I suppose you want a good Bible burning? If they did that there would be more than an uproar!

          • independant thinker

            In muslim controlled countries they burn or otherwise destroy every bible they find and nothing is said about it.

          • eddie47d

            And that makes this right? Hopefully we have more sense in America.

        • Norm

          Brad
          The Nazis burnt books. You talk about hiding your head in the sand. Burning books changes nothing and proves nothing. It only shows someone who refuses to aknowledge reality, good or bad.

          • Brad

            Sure Nazi’s burned books to prevent knowledge and further their cause, they also tryed to exterminate a whole race of people. Muslims in general sided with Nazi Germany during WWII, today you have muslim leaders talking about the extermination of the jewish state. How can you sit back and not condone their retorick, but let one person in the US try to burn the Quran and your up in arms about that.

          • Viktor Leben

            So it’s OK if I have distribute “Mein Kampf” or “The Turner Diaries” or “The Protocols of the Learned Elder of Zion” to stir up trouble against the Jewish People ?

            Or can I burn one copy of each of these to protest the lies in these books ?

          • independant thinker

            One big difference. This is an individual burning the koran In Nazi Germany it was the government sponsering/doing the book burning.

          • dan az

            Norm
            Brad asked you a question how about it or is the truth beyond you?

          • Claire

            Burning the Koran may not prove or change a thing to some people, but it would sure feel good doing it!

        • Brad

          eddie47d,

          just goes to show you two wrongs don’t make a right. But take into consideration what christians have gone through at the hands of muslims in muslim country’s.

          • Claire

            And take into consideration the hippies that burned the US Flag back in the ’60s. Jane Fonda’s antics. The deserters that ran to Canada and other places. And remember the honorable young men that did go to Viet Nam, lost their lives, became disabled, and God knows what else. Viet Nam was a human tragedy as far as I am concerned. I marched against it too. But I did not burn any US Flags. It was a war that should never have happened.
            So what the hell is the difference if someone wants to burn a Koran? At least they won’t be burning any US Flags.

          • Viktor Leben

            Be a draft dodger = become President ….

            Be a HERO = get spit upon in the airport ….

            WOW, has America always been that evil ?

          • dan az

            Claire
            allahoboma and wife burned thier fair share of flags during that time and the libs still think hes an american how does that work?

          • http://?? Joe H.

            dan az,
            i don’t know about Nobama seeing as the year he was born, but I DO know the Klintoons DID in England!!!

          • dan az

            JoeH
            that doent suprise me!

          • Claire

            dan az –Anyone that burns an American Flag should be put in jail. I have no tolerance for people that burn the Flag of America. Being here in Illinois I truthfully am not aware that Obama and wife burned any flags. If they did, they should be run out of America ASAP. I do remember Ayers. He is another jerk that should be in prison. And Ayers has no remorse for what he did, he is the scum of the earth. As I said earlier I have no problem with the preacher burning the Islamic/Muslim Koran. I could care less about that piece of rubbish and the demonic cult islams/muslims belong to. As I said, I marched against the Viet Nam war and I carried a sign that said “Bring our Troops Home.” My friends carried their signs. I was not violent and neither were my friends. There were some hateful people in the crowd, and some were scary. We all went together as a group and made more than one appearance at the State Capitol.
            On a personal note, I have a flag in my backyard and in my front yard. I put them out each morning unless it is raining, and I bring them in at dusk. I have done this for many years and I will continue to do so until I die.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Claire,
            i have a flag on a 24 foot pole in front of my house that flies 24 hours a day seven days a week 52 weeks a year. I have a spotlight on it and when the flag gets tattered as they will, I very reverently take it down, properly fold it, and put it awat till they have a flag disposal ceremony at the VFW here. they usually have them about three times a year. I don’t know if you know it, but they are burnt at the ceremony, but it is done with the proper respect and service as required. Quite a few people know the proper display of the flag. For instance do you know it is supposed to go to the left of the front door as you face the front of the house? also NO OTHER FLAG IS TO BE FLOWN ABOVE IT!! I get so mad when I see people put up a team flag above it! I waited till a neighbor left one day and went over and changed it and left a note telling him the proper way and he didn’t do it again till he moved last year.

          • Claire

            JoeH–When my flags become tattered I give them to my neighbor and he takes them to the VFW for disposal. I do not approve of putting a flag “above” the US flag. There is a guy about 6-7 blocks away from me that flies a “Tacos Welcome” flag above his US flag!! He is a creep. Every time I drive past his house I want to stop and tell him how ignorant he is!! I have seen him out in his yard and he looks darn scary. I don’t know if I should stop and say anything or not. I sure want to but he looks like he could make mincemeat out of me!
            I have never placed a flag above the US flag. There is only one true flag of honor and that is the US flag.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Claire,
            Tell your neighbor at the VFW about it I’ll bet it changes!

        • 1955 The Keeper

          I am not at odds with the Holy Quran burners. If they feel that this will further their cause and bring attention on the Islamafication of America then they should let their hearts be their guide. However, I would rather that they NOT burn them but allow their church members to sit down and read them as you would read the Holy Bible, cover to cover. As you do, have a note pad and pencil at your side and write down the dozens upon dozens of passages within it that directly tout extremist violence against non-Muslims and Muslims alike. Know what is the basic motivation of these people from the Middle East and Asia. I could never serve a god that demanded me to further the horizon of my religion’s influence through intimidation and out and out murder of non-believers. Instead of bringing condemnation down upon themselves for the Hitleristic act of burning books that they don’t agree with, wouldn’t it be more impressive to announce that, “We had 187 adult members of our congregation sit down with copies of Islam’s Holy Quran and read it from cover to cover and these are the most damning passages that we found that simply spell out the ethnic cleansing perpetrated by this mystic Far Eastern Cult.” And worry not about allowing your people to read the Holy Quran. Not a single rational, thinking, well adjusted individual will convert after they fully comprehend the true horror show presented between the front and back covers of that book. Atheists state that Christianity is one of the hardest religions to understand why any rational person who knows and follows the exactness of science would believe in. Once you read A Holy Quran, and began to compare Islam to Christianity, you will view Christianity in the same fashion as mathematics, nuclear physics, or astronomy. If anyone tries to convince you that their Allah and our God are one and the same, don’t you believe it for a second. God would never tell His people to kill the rest of the world in His name in order to secure His power over those who survive annihilation. He has already given his Creation the gift of free will. In Islam, no such gift was given by Allah. It is either believe or die.

          • TIME

            1955, Thats due to the very basic fact that Islam is a CULT. So would anyone want to join Jim Jones? No not if they are thinking at all.

            As for the burning of a book that has “zero value to man kind,” is that evil?

            Well how about this question for those who think that burning this book filled with vile evil hate,
            (If you knew what Hitler was really like, would you have tried to kill him, as well burn his book My Strugle?)

            Yea, I know logic is real bitch.

      • Darryl

        Norm, with 30+ yrs ‘dealing’ w/muslims I can tell you, with no longer ANY doubt, given the chance, ‘they’ will/must convert, or kill you. Burning books? We’ve far more to be concerned with in regards to ‘muslims’ than upsetting some people with book burning. I’ve lived with these ‘peace-loving-people’ in the ‘far east’; they DO NOT love you! It is demanded of them to convert you, or kill you. Simple as that. My ‘awakening’ cost me…Wake up before it cost (us all) far more!

      • tlludwig

        So how about building a mosque at ground zero? Why are people so quick to be tolerant about that but god forbid, dont burn any books!

      • tlludwig

        Hey Norm, have you ever heard the saying, fight fire with fire? Sometimes drastic measures need to be taken. Personally, I dont think book burning is the best way to make a point however I completely understand why people are acting this way. Islam is a bully and people are tired of being bullied!

    • David

      No, the US, and much of the world, condemns that behavior.

      • Dan Burke

        First, yes, we in the US condemn that behavior (referring to the honor killings, etc). Second, while many in the world condemn the behavior too, do NOT fool yourself into believing that they all do. Many accept the behavior. Either by excusing it as honoring a culture’s religion/laws. Maybe they excuse it by denying it exists, or is a problem (holocaust deniers do this same thing). Or perhaps they turn a blind eye, often because they have a conflicting interest (usually money) in the matter. I found it interesting that some of those countries who strongly opposed the US invasion of Iraq actually were owed money by Saddam Hussein…. That doesn’t mean that the war on Iraq is justified because those objecting actually had money to lose when we invaded. It just means that you have to understand that many of us (even Americans) turn a blind eye to many wrongs in the world because we have an invested interest that conflicts.

        As for this book burning. Well, we allow flag burning. Why not book burning? Oh yeah, maybe it is because it brings back images of Nazi Germany and World War II.

        For me, there are two prominent dangers with the book burning.

        1. It does create a strong visual impression on the participants. You are creating the image of burning a religion in this case. Further done this road of figuratively burning a religion is the literal burning of any opposing religion…. This is dangerous, dangerous fire to be playing with. You DO NOT want to go here.

        2. I don’t want my religion burned anymore than it is, or has been in the past. Although I am not Muslim, and I personally don’t hold a very high opinion of the Qur’an, or their religion, does not mean I think anyone should go around burning their religious books. My own religion has seen in the past, here in America, our leaders tarred and feathered, chased from their lands, their homes, their property. Many do not see us as Christian even to this day. But knowing that history, I do not want to see the Qur’an burned.

        Personally, I think I would rather see justice on our shores. If they perform a “honor killing” within our jurisdiction, then I am for our laws applying. So an American Muslim, on American soil, should go to jail based on the legal process, and if they are found guilty according to accepted federal/state/local laws. No exception for “sharia law” that might allow a “honor killing.” If such a killing is truly honorable, then they would honorably accept their jail time.

        As for us, DO NOT burn the book!!!

        • dan az

          Dan Burke
          You have a point so I feel there is another way and that would serve to make a point in which all muslims would take offence and that would be to pile up the books and pour pigs blood on them. Hey at least they didnt get burned.That way when they burn our flag we would be politicaly correct!

    • Kinetic1

      AP,
      You make this sound like a sit-com with a laugh track. “oh, it’s just those silly muslims again”. Really? Where have you ever heard such nonsense? I have never met anyone who would condone such punishment, especially here in America. What I have heard of is men like these losing their children or being hunted down and jailed for murder.

      There’s little we can do about the cultural practices of other nations, and it may not be our place even if we could. But here at home we play by our rules. The longer they live here, the more their children will come to accept and follow our customs. Burning their holy books will only turn them towards their religion and away from our laws.

    • Dadicated

      I think Rev. Jones may have burned his Bible before he decided to burn the Koran. These two Bible verses, one from the Old Testament and the other from the New Testament speak clearly about how we should treat our enemies:

      Proverbs
      21 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat,
      and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,
      22 for you will heap burning coals on his head,
      and the LORD will reward you.

      Romans
      “On the contrary, ‘if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head’” (Romans 12:20)

  • Brian

    I agree Patriot.
    If you can burn the American flag. You can burn every Koran you can find !

    • David

      The Pastor can burn the Koran. The discussion is about whether he should do so.

      • Viktor Leben

        There is “no discussion”. This guy must be one of those gun toting Preachers – like in the Old West ! You try stopping him and he’ll put a bullet between your eyes ! SO HELP ME CLINT EASTWOOD !!!

        My SCience ! What is the world coming to ? Christians think they have rights !

  • ArizonaPatriot

    Two wrongs don’t make a right… but over 3000 wrongs on 9/11/01 make it DAMN RIGHT!

    Unless you refuse to coddle these self-rightous terrorists idiots, you will have to eventually accept them. And I believe that the majority of Americans will not stand for that.

    • David

      Included in those killed on 9/11 were Muslims. How do we honor those American citizens?

      • Brad

        David,

        Name all muslims killed on 9/11 except for the hijackers? Where is your proof?

        • David

          OMG Brad, Google it. It’s everywhere.

          Here is one http://islam.about.com/blvictims.htm

          If Muslims Americans were killed on 9/11 also, would that change your view?

        • Brad

          David,

          I have to say there were 60 people of the muslim faith killed on 9/11 who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Because the terroist hijackers had no right doing what they did, but we all know what happened, almost 3000 innocent people lost their lives due to radical islam and the way they preach there gospel. Was it right, no it wasn’t, do the victums families want payback they sure do.

          • David

            No Brad. All 3000 people, including our fellow innocent Muslim citizens, were in the wrong place at the wrong time. They were killed by criminals who wrapped themselves around their angry mental illness. We must not generalize and devolve into prejudice, hate and fear. If we do, the criminals win.

            There are no Muslim terrorists just like their are no Christian or Jewish terrorists. They are criminals who, for self-serving reasons (and other mental defects)rationalize their behavior using Islam.

  • Ray

    In the past we fought when attacked. Wemust get our head out of the sand and realize we are under attack. Political correctness is killing us. Freedom of religion does NOT mean allowing antiAmerican crazys to do what they will. I would go a step further. Burn a mosque.

    • eddie47d

      How about arresting you for inciting a riot! What a jerk.

      • VinceP

        If you are going to arrest someone for inciting a riot, don’t you think you should start with the Hollywood nut jobs? John Cusack comes to mind!

        I don’t like burning books either. However, a statement has to be made! Our politicians have ignored their declaration of war by calling it a few extremists… The Koran teaches hate of all infidels, ( anyone who is not Islamic ), under penalty of death. This is not a peaceful religion, never has been, never will be!
        There are peaceful Islamics, they are usually outcasts or killed by there father….

    • Corinne

      There’s no need to burn a mosque – just drench it in pig’s blood!

    • Dadicated

      Ray’s suggestion that people “burn a mosque” is criminal and is not protected by free speech. I think the people monitoring this site should remove his comment immediately and ban him from further comment. I don’t think that is likely to happen, nor do I think he’ll be arrested for his reckless comment.

      I would hope that the Christians who have participated in this debate will condemn Ray’s call to burn a mosque, even those who support book burning. This is not borderline or empy rhetoric, it is a call for someone to commit a criminal act that could endanger lives.

  • Dancingcop

    This may not come off as acceptable, but remember the Nazi’s burned books they thought offensive as well. The First Ammendment gave us the Freedom of Speech and bars government from establishing a religion. Establishment of religion is what the Islamist want. The First Ammendment also prohibits the government from enacting any law that prohibits the free expression of religion. Seems like the government has forgot that the individual, the citizens of America, have the right to wear, erect or profess religious images or words, whatever they may be. That said, remember in November to displace (fire, vote out) those in government that would continue to erode our rights as the current administration is actively engaged in doing. Remember to take out the trash in November!

  • william steel

    I support that florida preacher who is going to burn those korans, which I view as a book of evil. the muslims are trying to take over from with in, we must not let that happen. there is no good muslims, they all worship the same koran , that teaches murder and hate. muslim, the most violent religion on earth, it must be defeated.

    • David

      Have you read the Koran? My guess is that you have not.

      There are good Muslims who happen to be good American citizens. I fought side by side with some in combat. They had my back and I had theirs. And I would do it again in a heart beat. Please stop generalizing from a lack of knowledge and understanding. There are no Muslim terrorists just like their are no Jewish or Christian terrorists. There are only CRIMINALS who wrap themselves around their “religion” and thereby delude themselves to justify their insane and immoral acts. Their own religion condemns their behavior. If we, and our fellow citizens, do not understand this, and to continue to fall prey to prejudice, fear, and hate, then the logical extension will be more ignorant and senseless violence like that inflicted on that innocent Muslim cab driver in New York City.

      • Ceddy Bear

        Overall David I do agree with you. However, by the statements made by some here and the intentions of the pastor in the article you can see the frustration and outrage of the citizens. I believe there are peaceful Muslims. But why aren’t they speaking out condemning the acts of terrorist who claim that their religion condones these actions? If it were any other religion they would speak up. According to the radical Islamist, anyone who does not take their stance is not a Muslim. If you do a historical study of the rise and spread of Islam it has a very violent history to win converts. The Koran does condone lying to “non-Muslims” to advance the religion. They call non-believers infadels because Islam is the only truth.

        • David

          Ceddy,
          They have, and are condemning, these criminal acts in the name of their religion. The NY City Imam condemned 9/ll as such. He was hired by President Bush to be a bridge to cooperation and mutual respect between Christians, Jews and Muslims right after 9/ll. Now, for self-serving political reasons, the “right” is demonizing him to get votes in November. Watch, that will all die down after November.

      • AB

        David, i respect your views on good muslim buddies that had your back in combat but i’m tempted to believe you haven’t read the Koran yourself. Those muslim buddies of yours are good guys but bad muslims period. The whole koran can be summarized in one sentence, “VIOLENCE ON AND DEATH TO ALL NON MUSLIMS’ It is a direct command from Allah, so if your buddies didn’t kill you when your back was turned, then they are not good muslims and sorry to say, just missed their one way ticket to Allah’s paradise. PLS TRY AND READ THE KORAN YOURSELF. THOUGH THE PASTOR’S PLANNED ACTIONS WON”T REALLY CHANGE ANYTHING, LET HIM EXERCISE HIS RIGHT TO PROTEST AS LONG AS HE DOESN’T BURN IT ON YOUR FACE. MUSLIMS DON”T NEED TO BE PROVOKED TO VIOLENCE IT’S THEIR WAY OF LIFE AND RELIGION. A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE. LISTEN UP!!!

        • enough?

          AGREE AB I believe you are referring to Sara 9.9: as to convert or die in Islam’s koran.

          coalminer, you are greatly misled by your thinking that Muslim’s are not using ‘soft sharia’ (deliberately misspelled) in the overthrowing of a nation by Islam.

          what is sad is that you will probably convert in order to not pay interest on your loans AND not be required to be pushed to pay a “TAX”
          penalty from obamacare. do you really believe that Islam will give you a ‘get out of jail free’ card by these ‘peaceful’ Muslims?

      • 1955 The Keeper

        Show me one verse, just one verse from the New Testament of the Holy Bible, not two or three, just one that states that those who are believers of Almighty God, the Planner, Designer, and Creator of the Cosmos and everything else are compelled by the pain of death and damnation in hell if they fail to convert the entire world through any means possible to Christianity. Come on, David. Show me just one. Can’t find one? I knew that you couldn’t because THERE ARE NONE! Bring your wheel barrow though because you will fill it up with the dozens upon dozens of verses from the Quran which promise blessings on the faithful of Allah who spread the base of Islam through any ruthless means possible up to and including the use of genocide if needed. And Allah is OK with that. All those good Muslims that you trusted to watch your back side will either die where they are standing as an apostate or as the last shots echo off into the distance and Islam is in control of what once was America, you better watch your own back side because even the “good ones” will shoot you first and then unload around three or four full clips into the air in Muslim celebration while chanting praises to Allah.

        • tlludwig

          Hey The Keeper…Yup you are right. Here are few verses right out of the Quran. Regarding Christians and Jews: 5.51: “Believers (Muslims), do not take Jews or Christians as friends they are but one another’s friends”. If anyone of you takes them for his friends, then he is surely one of them. God will not guide evil-doers.” Regarding Jihad:9.5-6 “Kill those who join other gods with God wherever you may find them.” and 8.39-42 “I will instill terror into the hearts of Infidels (non-believers of Islam), strike off their heads then, and strike off from them every fingertip”.

    Book Burning?.I understand the feelings of those who are for burning the koran .but that puts us in the same category. hitler burned books.I agree that the koran is a unholybook.But;we should be aware that there isA BOOK ABOVE ALL BOOKS.THE HOLY B{BLE.IT tells you how to deal with your enemies.Examine yourself .Read the BIBLE.;GOD SAID;If MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES SEEK MY FACE AND PRAY I WILL HEAL THEIE LAND.PUT IT IN GOD:S MIGHTY HANDS

      Amen!

    Burning any book does not resolve anything. Burning the flag should be remanded as “hate speech”, not freedom of speech.

    Imam Rauf insisting on building a mosque just yards away from where fanatics of his religion have committed murder in the name of Allah is not “bridge building” but an outright provocation of the United States of America, not unlike the 9/11/01 attacks were. To name the building the Cordoba house further clarifies the intention as provocative.

    Christians with true and clear Christian convictions don’t give in to provocation, but work within the legal system to prove the well founded reasons why this particular mosque shouldn’t be built at that particular site.

    Constitutional rights should be respected by both sides over a contentious issue; freedom of speech grants for Americans of ALL faiths or no faiths to condemn and oppose an action that in its nature is nothing more than furtherance of already chafed feelings of mistrust.

      what does Cordoba house mean?

      • Michael J.

        dan az,
        Cordoba, Spain is where the 8th century Muslim Moors erected a mosque in celebration of the conquest of Spain. This practice of building a mosque on the site of their victories has been muslim tradition for a millenium or more. One famous site you may have heard of is the Dome of the rock in Jurusalem. Dozens more examples worldwide proves that Islam is more of a conquering army whose constitution is the Quran. Once these mosque are built they are not just places of worship but also a sanctuary an armory and a bunker for covert terrorist operations.

  • Joe R.

    Pastor Jones has his rights too. If he wants to burn an evil book, more power to him. If you want to stop the mosque near Ground Zero bury some dead pigs on the site before construction starts. Also talk to the construction unions about refusing to take the job and do not allow non-union Muslim scabs on the site.

    • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Martha

      Sounds like a very good idea!!!!

    • Jim R.

      I agree that we must step up as Americans. If we do not straighten things out now, it may me to late tomorrow. I do not believe the Muslims should be allowed to build in the propossed location, and should move it to another location. This just another step in their eventual takeover of a conquered country. I think if they decide to build near the trade center, we should let them. Let them spend $100 million dollars and help the New York economy. You do not have to steal airplanes and fly them into buildings to blow them up. Someone or organization will probably blow it up. Then some more money will be pumped into the N. Y. ecopnomy to clean up the mess. The koran is an evil book and should be banned. If the Klan published a book saying the vile things in the koran, it would not be allowed.

  • Gus

    If Americans have “the right” to burn a flag, Americans have the right to burn the Koran.

    Whether Americans want to admit it or not, the Muslim world has declared war on the Western World and in particular, the USA and Israel. This “war” will never be over until we wake up and act as if we want to win this war.

    WE OWE THIS to the next generation.

    Open Letter to all Patriotic Americans

    Poppy Cock! Burning Korans, spewing vile comments and jumping around in little circles, all acts of delinquent child like mentally. Most Americans and all of our political leaders need to man-up, stop the verbal bull shit and take a stand. It is very clear that most Americans are against allowing a mosques or anything to do with Muslins be built in the area of the 9/11 disaster. Our leaders (And “We The People”) need to support American ideas and standards, say no and get on with much more important issues of our American lifestyle. Should the muslins persist and file a law suit to get their mosque built, our supreme court justices need to support American ways by kicking their court filing to the curb, tell them we will not allow it and tell them to go home. Should the supreme court justices not have the mind set to support these American ideas, then we have the wrong people in place in our court system and it’s time to replace them, period. Just like we (Americans) made a vast mistake with electing Barack Hussein Obama as our President. It is time to over-through him and his socialist/communist standards and ideas. You as a patriotic American need to decide how YOU are going to assist our country back to being a sovereign, free land, full of respected or feared (by enemies) American citizens. Let the third world aliens, muslins, white, blacks, yellows, browns and all the rest that would become AMERICANS follow the rules required to do so. If some are not happy with the standards, let them try to change them, in an American way, for we do not live by Islamic, Sharia law in this country. Stop the quibbling and do something. Today, a Patriotic American MUST be a warrior to survive. It is time for action, (not childish posturing) but the correct type actions, let us get on with it. The following TWO quotes says it all.
    Regards,
    Tom W

    Quote: “This country, with all its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.”

    Quote: “We cannot expect the Americans to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism.”
    – Norman Thomas, American Socialist Party, 1944

    (America,,, you are closer to Socialism, Communism than you think!)

    • Da Norseman

      The antidote to a Socialist or Communist takeover is when the many constitutional militias throughout the nation will rise up and take up arms. More and more patriotic Americans are joining or forming these militias to preserve the nation and the constitution. History will repeat itself as it did 235 years ago when the Crown was defeated.

    • STEVEN MORRISON

      TOM WYCKOFF what you don’t realize is that there are already thousands of patriotic American Muslims many of whom died on 9/11, and many of whom went to fight in Bush’s illegal wars after 9/11. And this patriotic American Christian is proud to have voted for and helped elect President Obama!

  • Da Norseman

    While burning copies of the Koran may not resolve anything, we can definitely burn them in the name of militant Muslim extremists and all terror groups.

  • Hugee

    Sir in all due respect why don’t you go to France -Belgium -England
    and other Countries
    and see what they are doing there. They seem to have all the power
    there is no stopping them.
    When you come back you will have another opinion.
    Try to do in Afghanistan what they do in those Countries try to take your Bible in the middle of the street, and pray. no cars can go through those streets,while they are praying from the Coran, people living there cannot leave their house or come back to their house at a certain time of the day. Apparently you never left this Country and see what is going on in Europe.
    I believe in freedom of Religion but what is good for them is good for us too…which you knnow is not the case.
    If we give the OK to built Mosques this will be the beginning of the end for America. We will have no more power..they will take over.
    How can you be so naive. Please awake while its not too late.

  • Da Norseman

    Since many construction companies may refuse to build it, but let’s just say if that mosque is built, let’s compliment it with a Hooters next door as well as some strip clubs and bars surrounding it. Whenever prayer is held that’s when it’s Happy Hour!!!

    David! David! David! First thank you for your service. From one veteran to another.
    Are you familiar with the Marine Corp Hymn? Off the top of my head Doesn’t it start out “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli??? Gee David do U have any idea where Tripoli is??? I was taught its in Libya. If what I was taught in public school is right then- THATS A MUSLIM COUNTRY! This part of the song comes from Thomas Jefferson’s time as president- 200+ years ago! We have had problems with these people since our country was in its infancy. Other places like Serbia have been combating the “criminals” of Islam far longer. Islam is NOT A RELIGION!!! It is a political and socio-economic system just like Democracy and Communism. Do some research and you will have a better idea of things. That vile puke- bin Laden loves to call us “crusaders” any idea why?
    When empires weaken and begin to collapse the roaches are the first to come out of hiding!!! These roaches are just lookin’ for there take of the leftovers! If you believe these “moderate” Muslims are peace-loving,etc…etc. then it should be okay by you that the women in your family marry and breed with these peace-lovers, right?
    David, you may soon be defending your way of life from your front porch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Lou

      Tom ,your right. We are losing the public relations battle because we don’t challenge the premise that Muslim is a religion. It has some elements of a religion but is so much more. We need a name for it that is more descriptive like Communism or fascism that people will recognize as inherently evil. As long as people keep defending it as a religion were fighting an uphill battle. Any suggestions?

  • jopa

    What happens next is they will start burning Bibles and everyone will say how terrible.Well it should lead to a boom,in the publishing industry.

  • Lee Weatherly

    David:
    In a Religious training session I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam would say. After the presentation, time was provided for questions. I directed my question to the Imam. I ask Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad [Holy war] against infidels of the world and that, by killing an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s correct can you give me the definition of an infidel. He immediately replied “Non-believers”. I said then all followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith, so they can inter heaven. Is that correct? He sheepishly replied yes. I then said Sir I have a problem with trying to imagine Dr. Stanley or Rev. Graham ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven! I continued, I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Would you not rather have my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to Heaven and He wants you to be there with me.
    The organizers of the Diversification training were not happy with my honest discussion with the Islamic Imam, and the truth about the Muslims’ beliefs.

  • eddie47d

    Christians have probably piled bodies higher than Muslims throughout history. Too many people want revenge for everything and we more than got our pound of flesh in the Middle East. When Spain conquered the Americas they force Christianity on the natives . Those that didn’t convert were killed/enslaved. They torn down temples and built their own houses of worship on top of the ruins. We can be more pious now but Christian history is full of villians also.

    • Brad

      Muslims have been piling bodies up since the start of their religion in persia and ended some 200 hd years later. Ever since they have been battling amungst themselves. Sure The spanish brought christianity to the America’s, the inchas and their ruins are still standing, there are no churches, the aztecs and their ruins are also still standing, and there are no churches. eddie47d get your facts strait, you sir are making yourself look stupid. Yes I do agree with you, christianity had there fair share of villians (a long time ago), ever since the renisuanse period christianity cleaned up it act, where as islam became more and more a cult society.

    Fellow Americans, We can sit here and try to express our feelings and try to rationalize the behavior of the Muslims until the second coming of Christ. We all need to understand their goal and altimate intentions, the Muslims will either kill us or we will kill them. If you cannot come to grips with that then we have all ready lost.

        Inna li-lahi wa inna li-layhi raja’un.

        From Allah we come, and to Him is our return.

        Thousands of innocent lives were lost on September 11, 2001, and our hearts and prayers go out to their families and loved ones. For several hundred of the victims of 9/11, grief and sorrow has been compounded by constant suspicion, bias, hatred, and attacks on the faith they hold dear.

        Imagine being the family of Salman Hamdani. The 23-year-old New York City police cadet was a part-time ambulance driver, incoming medical student, and devout Muslim. When he disappeared on September 11, law enforcement officials came to his family, seeking him for questioning in relation to the terrorist attacks. They allegedly believed he was somehow involved. His whereabouts were undetermined for over six months, until his remains were finally identified. He was found near the North Tower, with his EMT medical bag beside him, presumably doing everything he could to help those in need. His family could finally rest, knowing that he died the hero they always knew him to be.

        Or imagine being Baraheen Ashrafi, nine months pregnant with her second child. Her husband, Mohammad Chowdhury, was a waiter at Windows of the World restaurant, on the top floors of Tower One. The morning of September 11, they prayed salaat-l-fajr (the pre-dawn prayer) together, and he went off to work. She never saw him again. Their son, Farqad, was born 48 hours after the attacks — one of the first 9/11 orphans to be born. In an interview with CTV Canada, she relates that in the months to follow, she mourned for her husband and endured the hostility of some ignorant people around her. “When they saw me … I’m wearing a scarf. There is a hate look.”

        Or consider Rahma Salie, a passenger on American Airlines #11 that crashed into the North Tower. Rahma, a Muslim of Sri Lankan origin, was traveling with her husband Michael (a convert to Islam) to attend a friend’s wedding in California. Rahma was 7 months pregnant with their first child. According to the Independent UK (October 11, 2001), Rahma’s name was initially put on an FBI watch list, because her “Muslim-sounding” name was on the passenger manifest, and her travel patterns were similar to those of the hijackers (she was a computer consultant living in Boston). Although her name was eventually removed from the list, several of her family members were barred from taking flights to her memorial service. Her mother, Haleema, said, “I would like everyone to know that she was a Muslim, she is a Muslim and we are victims too, of this tragic incident.”

          You think Brad will care? or the “pigs blood” commenters?

        • out damn spot out

          COAL MINER your so full of it!! Go ahead list their names and continue to grotesquely honor them. Don’t you understand the Islamic muslims don’t grieve these dead ones because their quran gurantees the families that these muslim dead ones ,too , died for the glory of allah. If the muslims kill their own in order to kill the ‘infidel–you and me or 3000 others at the WTC, Pa. field and the Pentagon–it’s perfectly ok with the quran.
          A fairer treatment is for you to list ALL the names of the victims when you list the names. NOT JUST A SELECT FEW to prove an atypical idea.
          When a muslim woman gives birth to a child (GOD only knows how with all that material covering her) that child is put into religious school almost from birth up. THIS is what they are taught to do to the infidel in any position they have managed to obtain.
          1.cause confusion
          2.cause chaos
          3.bring down
          4.utterly destroy.
          We have seen this order of events take place every time the muslims are involved. NYC, Pa.,Pentagon. President OBAMA, the girl at Disney who tried to start a problem by saying that DIsny wouldn’t let her wear her hijab.(DIsney sales fantasy and has like all theme parks strict rules and regs regarding costumes.)The hijab is not a costume officially sanctioned by Disney. The psychiatrist soldier who shot all the troops in TEXAS.The NYC proposed mosque.The muslims who attended a Presbyterian college in Texas and said they did not know the Trinity was on their diploma. They demanded that the college change the diploma!! Trinity was the name of the Presbyterian College.HOw about Naser Abdo. A muslim who joined the ARmy, got training at the Army ranger school in columbus Ga. Was told he was being deployed to Afghanistan and all of a sudden he is now a Conscientious Objector wanting out of the Us military(ARMY)after he has received RAnger training. I expect one day we will hear of him up there in NYC fighting to build the moosque(no misspell)and then he will join the moosque and train those who come there in Army Ranger elite training to use against us. He can’t help it. He has too since that is the training he received and he is required by Islamic RAdical Muslims to use this RAnger training.To ultimately -’UTTERLY DESTROY”. HOw about the Religious Islamic radical muslim commander who called for the HEAD of the President of the FRANCE’sWIFE TO HAVE HER HEAD sliced off just yesterday in the news!! What’s her name? Sarkosky?What did she do? She said she was praying for the ‘ho that IRAN was going to stone to death and demand that her husband the PRESIDENT OF FRANCE call for the international community to make IRAN release this adulterous woman who was complicit in her own husband’s death. The woman has two children which personally before I would have committed adultry with a man I would have thought about my children’s welfare. Then after this cleric’s outburst to the French President Wife the governing body of IRAN comes out and states well we are a peacful religion and we do not sanction speech against other nations gov’t. HOwever he said this AFTER the fact!! These cleric’s do what they are told to do by the ayatollah.The gov’t cover this fact up then denies that we muslims of IRAN allow type of speech.
          They also read our history , our governing documents and use them against us when we oppose them as seen in NYC. So NYC said you Islamic radical muslims are being insensitive to all Americans who lost friends, family and relatives on 9/11. Now what have the islamic radical muslims done. THey’ve turned around and said NYers are being insensitive to them, muslims. NO matter what you come up with they twist it around and use it against you to make their selves look like the victim. (causing confusion and chaos–or did you not see the pictures of muslims preying(no misspell)in the streets of manhattan over their proposed moosque?)
          As for America. We have invited GOD out of our lives. We have removed HIM from our schools and courts and even some churches.
          WE have killed over 1 million babies each year since the legalization of roe vs wade. That’s approx. 40 million babies outright killed.What did we use to believe when GOD was in our AMerican lives? THou shall not Kill.
          When nature sees a void He fills it. What do we have now? Our void is being filled with illegal immigrants stealing our govt blind and now with the insensitive insistence of the islamic radical muslims saying they will not build in another area of NYC well what will happen–they will eventually impose their Shariah law(religious) on the good old USA.
          These Islamic radical muslims do NOT look to assimilate with the people of the USA. If they did they would leave behind that DEADLY religion that they say they wanted to escape from to win immigrant status here and embrace the new world with a new hope instead of wearing hijabs and long white robes and building moosques and then perpetrate the LIE that they are a peaceful religion. Yep, they are peaceful alright!! ALL the way up to slitting your throat in a dark alley way some night never saying a word because you are the infidel to them. Their theme is to push world domination of their RADICAL Islamic muslim shariah law and control every one. Then they will also push us to the end of the world because there are too many independent AMERICANS who will never bow down to any ayatollah who is the supreme controller of Islamic Radical Muslims. NOR ever repeat the quran. Personally I would prefer that you never repeated the quran to prove your point to others. I’d just prefer you use the Bible to make your point if you must quote Scripture. The more these Islamic radical muslims see their religion quoted on the net the more they are encouraged to follow the SUBVERSIVE COMMANDS of the AYATOLLAH who controls them. They see this as that they , Islamic radical muslims are winning and are pushing their religion to the ultimate world domination!! So if it were me I would just quote the BIBLE as there are enough references in the BIBLE about muslims and their ilk(stay away from them, don’t marry them, don’t abode in their country etc.) that also explain their existence and their beliefs and what they plan to do to KILL YOU AND ME.
          Someone once said this:
          Jews will die for their religion.
          Christians will ‘fly away’ to Jesus (rapture) for their religion.
          Islam says YOU will die for MY religion.And I will do it!!
          I’d rather prefer the beauty of being able to fly away in the Rapture. OK. I’ll leave you this JOKE about Islamic Radical muslims
          I slam , you slam, we all slam, for I slam!!! LOL. See you in the rapture. I hope!!

    If Christianity is bad, then it would fall under the criteria of the Roman Catholic Church, which has been under so much heavy fire due to its turbulent and terrifying history. In the Scandinavian countries it was successfully driven out by Lutherans where the Pope was extremely unpopular. In Sweden, for example, Queen Christina was forced into exile after abdicating the throne in favor of her cousin in 1654 due to her unpopularity as a Roman Catholic convert who wanted to bring the Church back as the principle religion. Catholicism has always driven people into fear, especially children of stout Roman Catholic parents. Whatever the Vatican is doing, Christianity cannot be condemned as a whole.

    When the Spaniards arrived to conquer the Americas and colonize, missionaries forced Roman Catholicism as the dominant religion, which does not follow the exact path of Christianity. While all other faiths of the Christian world look up to the Almighty, those lengthy Roman Catholic Masses look upon the Virgin Mary.

    • libertytrain

      The Catholics do look to the The Almighty, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit, and have a very deep reverence for the Mother of Jesus.

    Burning the Koran, is like burning a rabbit’s foot. Islam is a military ideology, it sure isn’t a religion, nor is it peaceful. The only thing the founder understood was violance, which is the only damn thing muslims understand. The airy fairy crap of sitting down and talking about our differences is to let the pedophile beleiving goat ranglers time to breed and become a majority, just like the bastards did with Lebonan, who modeled their constitution after the USA’s.Osama the head goat abuser said America was a paper tiger with no teeth, yes we are, when socialist democraps run the show. GW kind of showed, a soft progressive might get serious and kick some sand niggardly a$$es if stepped on. This muslm marxist mule is trying his damnedist to take this nation down. A war or a good conflict, going after muslim dictators, would put people back to work and fire up the government production plants like Government Motors again. Feely meely feel good s–t just doen’t work. When I hear the Pope and religious leaders knock a war, going after evil bastards, they need to be told, to stuff a prayer rag in it.

  • Phil

    Ok…on one hand, yeah burning books is not good. On the other, how do you think islam got their “scriptures” in the first place? They themselves burned all the differing and extra manuscripts except one and went with that. They went “eeenie meenie miny moe” picking ONE and then burnt the rest. This as opposed to the judeao-christian manuscripts which all are saved and kept for study and comparison. Christianity welcomes “more” manuscripts. The more they get and older the better, confirming their authenticity,etc.

  • eddie47d

    There is a book in Israel published last year called Torat Ha’Melech (Kings Torah),by Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira. The book gives Jews the right to kill any non-Jew and any secular Jew.If someone feels a baby will grow up and harm them in the future they can also be killed.Shabak (Israel’s internal security) monitors anyone buying the book.This book is creating serious problems for the government and turmoil in their synagouges. The book will not be banned or burned.

    If you look at Islamic history, they will build a great Mosque on or as close as possible to show that they are thew maasters. There is a grand Mosque on top of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, the lagest Christian church in Instanbul was made into a Grand Mosque, The Grand Mosque in Cordoba, Spain was to remind the Souther Spanish who was boss. Now they want to build their biggest Mosque one at/near the site of the destroyed World Trade Center. Check other sites of their conquest if you care to, also remember that there is political support to use public funds to build it. What a country we live in!!
    By the way I DO NOT condone book burning.

  • Viktor Leben

    All I got to say is don’t go to this church !!!! Once the Islamo-Terrorist get mad about this Koran burning, you can kiss your church good bye ! That’s why all of the other Christians are denouncing it, they don’t want a suicide bomber attacking their church ! This church is going to get suicide bombed or attacked by terrorist ! Just watch what happens !!!!

    • Claire

      Viktor Leben– You have a point–this may happen. There are sleeper cells here in the US, organizations that should be “watched.”

      • out damn spot out

        Listen you guys. Yes there are sleeper cells here in the USA–which moosque(no misspell) DO YOU PICK??!!! ALL these moosques are just waiting for their orders from the grand ayatollah to strike us!!
        As for a fact!!Right here in Marietta GA. the FBI caught an Islamic muslim setting fire to his NEW moosque that was being built where he would go to raise his ass and let his fellow Islamic muslims smell it!! .WHY would he burn down his own unfinished moosque?(you ask)–to throw suspicion on SUPPOSEDLY islamaphobos in America down south. Well as you might understand we here in the SOuth still live under oppressive FEDERAL rules incorporated by the FEDERAL gov’t to keep us rebel southerners under their sights for the yanks who won that inglorious civil war. In fact:Our GOvernor had to ask the FEDERAL gov’t if we could change our voting laws to require a picture ID of every registered voter before he/she could vote.It took three or four years for the FEDs to rule whether GA could have a picture ID enforced upon voters or they would lose their right to vote without a picture ID. I mention all these facts to you about GA being controlled by oppressive fed. govt so that you will understand why the FEDS are always hanging around here in GA.. They saw this muslim burning what turned out to be his newly built moosque. So they captured him ‘red handed’ with gasoline, matches, torches, etc. and arrested him. But this isn’t the end of the story!! This islamic muslim man’s wife starts getting news media to cover her story which is that her husband is innocent . He would never burn down his own moosque. If the guy had not been caught red handed they were planning to say red neck southerners burned down their moosque!!This is exactly what the muslim man’s wife said. It was red neckers not my husband!! He would never burn down the moosque. Now having heard and proved this TRUE STORY I have highly serious doubts that a ‘red necker’ in TENN burned a down a moosque there!! And I think the FEDS also have doubts that a red necker southerner burned down the tenn moosque(because of what actually happened here in Marietta , GA.). WE just prefer to make illiterate , funny , satirical, jokes about those who oppress us EVEN today!! Grin and bear it as they say!!This one we won!! The muslims even used this Islamic radical muslims wife to try and play the victim for her husband and hang it on a ‘red necker’ southerner. having caught the islamic radical muslim RED HANDED ON THE SPOT. Thanks FEDS for doing your job!!! So maybe 100 years ago the KKK down here burned crosses but they are long gone. I think it has been ten years since my neighbor received a fancy KKK calling card–you are being watched. So she pulled back the living room curtains and did a strip tease!!So we have all this rich juicy phobic racial history that the islamic radical muslims think they can use against us and hell there were the very feds that oppress us daily catching the islamic radical muslim man red handed in the very act of burnin the moosque.(this is the GOspel truth) If this isn’t their radicalism then what is? As i said on another post. See you in the rapture!!

    Before we burn a Koran, we ought to read it. Koran 9:5 says that Muslims are to rise up and slay Christians and Jews after the sacred months are over [Ramadan, the most "sacred" of months is over the 8th of September.] Maybe this is the year Muslims can obey Allah about this –with the extraordinary outreach to Muslim nations from this White-House. “We have never been at war with Islam and we never shall be,” said our beloved President.

  • http://gmail i41

    Still have any doubts about this marxist purple lipped liar, being a muslim.Now the ridged ideological pedophile goat rangers are saying they will attack in the next several months. Islam is an ideology with military backing for its enforcement. Onumnut’s own words, “if a conflict happened, he would back the muslims”, that is his words, still feel safe. Since Michigan has a large onclave of pedophiles, they kick out non muslims at certain areas, guess it would be a great place to level and let St.Peter sort out the left overs.

    hello fellow humans and christian fellows,

    have non of you noticed that your pastor who you love so much has been charged with being in possession of child pornography. this is one of the most rampant crimes against humanity and is rife in your beloved america. besides thats why most of you travel to the philipines isn’t it? when will you wake and see that Islam is the Truth and stop construing fairy tales to stop peaople from actually reading the Quran. Reminder: Islam is the fastest growing religion in America. last time i checked it was about 20, 000 (twenty thousand) converts a year.

    Is anybody bringing hotdogs and marshmallows? Burn them all. I say kick them all out of America until every Muslim country in the world allows free and open Christianity to flourish and 100 churches and synagogues are built in each country. This country was founded on the freedom of “Judeo-Christian” religion, not on the freedom to form a cult or a pagan religion, and make no mistake about it, Islam is a pagan religion. Should we allow people like Jim Jones to wander about the country building churches and spreading his so-called “religion”? Islam is just like Jones in that they teach misery and death whereas true religion teaches love and life.

    Hw many muslim dictator run countrys allow a Bibles to be even carried in. The Bible is destroyed at airports, and these diaper headed stone aged smuckswant the USA to allow Shara law and their perverted ideology here. When those ideology driven morons allow equal access, we should destoy any thing that glorifies these pedophile perverted scum bags. Same goes for their food bans on what they will eat. Just go over to their 3rd world contries and see how perverted these camel humpers are. I wonder if you burn Korans what kind of a carbon foot print would it leave and or you be accessed? Should be given extra bonus points for preventing more honor killings and women being beaten and abused and little boys being assulted by uncles and fathers or brothers. Of course the muslims and arabs are so inbred several times, just look at Saddam’s inbred sons. Keep them confined out in the sands in an area, with restricted travel, they will breed them selves in to sand hogs with curly tails.

    Yes, Islam is the fastest growing religion and most converts are in prisons, and are the pug nosed monkees are muslims refer to blacks. It fits with the tribal mind set of needing a head moron deciding how the live, and can lie to any non muslim with imputinty, and is even admires. If you are a muslim, are you aburgatted and follow Mohammed’s last uttered words and beleive them totally? If Koran was the truth, why does Mohammed live like a pedophile and abuse women and promote such crap. Islam is an ideology not a religion. Allah was a moon god figurine, one of 359 other clay gods that were destroyed by Mohammed at Mecca. Of course as Paul harvey would say “Now for the rest of the story”. Allah is a harsh vengful god, Christ is a loving caring God. Mohammed and Allah is strickly a dreamed up idea. Christ Jesus was witnesses as by non beleivers and written down even the koran about Jesus’s birth and his mother. So I will say a prayer that muslim you see the liught and reconize the facts and the truth, and quit being misled.

  • out damn spot out

    I see it as a way to create jobs that this pastor has found to do and then they will NOT have enough money to build the NYC mosque.
    Logic: Burn the quran 1 at a time by 187 people there.
    Islamic radical muslims retaliate by printing 187,00 qurans.
    This pastor then invites all the 187,00 posters on the net who want to burn a quran and pays for their trip to his bonfire. These 187,00 burners burn 187,00 individual qurans.
    Islamic radical muslims retaliate by printing 187,000. qurans.
    The pastor again invites 187,000 quran burners to individually burn 187,000 qurans.Islamic radical muslims retaliate and so forth and so on.
    Look at the amount of money involved here. 187,00
    books x10.00$=187,000.00$ so forth and so on.
    As the progression goes upwards you also have multiples of people buying plane tickets, food, hotels etc to come and burn the quran. This pastor can keep on burning and create employment for printing, flights,food, hotels, gasoline(to burn books),cars tires, oil, to get to the site to burn books. Printing presses you name it. This man is a genius.
    And all the while the NYC mosque is not getting built because the muslims are sending their money to reprint the burned books.
    Yep, as a salute to creativity and bringing down unemployment everyone wins. The Islamic radical muslims keep printing day and night. The burners keep coming day and night and more multiples of their book are burned. It’s a never ending cycle to which the muslims will send their money to keep printing books and they will not have any money left to send to NYC to build the proposed mosque. Yep, it’s win win for everyone, even those who chose not to burn the books. The debate on this thread I have settled. Win Win. I am for even continuing burning everyday the quran. Where’s this preacher located!!.
    Likewise if they burn my Bible, well it will just be reprinted and the cycle perpetuates itself. But I will never have to buy a BIBLE because I memorized it as a child word for word and have never forgotten it as HE commands me to do. Oh Gosh!! as for all those hijab wearing females of Islamic radical muslims am I ever so honored that MY GOD said to me MY HAIR IS MY CROWN IN GLORY!!! Therefore I do not have to worry about what others attractions to me are. I wear my gorgeous hair for HIS GLORY. NOt man’s glory. It’s too bad for ya;ll that you HAVE TO HIDE YOUR HAIR UNDER THOSE DISGUSTINGLY SMELLY SCARVES especially down south in THIS HEAT. YOU ALL DO SO VERY MUCH SMELL HORRIBLE. THE STENCH OF YOU IN THIS SWELTERING HEAT IS UNGODLY!!! REMEMBER CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS, girls. All you all Christians don’t forget to hold your nose as they pass by in their hijabs.

    Nothing has ever looked as good on fire as the American flag. I enjoy burning them on the Fourth of You Lie, whenever we begin another war of Capital, or whenever I think of Ronald Raygun. The American flag is so ugly anyway, like all most other similarly colored flags—how did all of these countries ever think red white and blue looked good together?

    But books? Burning books is a mark of the infantile mind. People who burn books eventually burn bodies.

    But then no book is as responsible for as many deaths as the Bible, so maybe I will burn one on September 11th to see what it is like to be as dim as a Teabagger.

    When Jesus is ruling in His millenium kingdom, most likely all korans will be burned or destroyed that survived the great tribulation but the important question is not what we think but what God has to say about this.

    If the minister has been baptized with the Holy Spirit and is speaking in tongues, he can simply ask God about it and receive an immediate answer.

    He should proceed only if it is in God’s will.

    THE MATHEMATICAL PROOF THAT THE BIBLE WAS CORRUPTED

    Which son was Abraham ordered by God to sacrifice? Ishmael (the ancestor of the Arabs) as Muslims claim, or Isaac as Jews and Christians pretend ? The contradiction found in the Bible might be the surprise of your life.

    (Genesis 21:8) “The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast.” (Genesis 21:14-15) Early the next morning Abraham took some food and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar. He set them on her shoulders and then sent her off with the boy. She went on her way and wandered in the desert of Beersheba. When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes.”

    Isaac was about 2 years old when he was weaned. Ishmael was then 16 years, because Abraham was 86 years old when Hagar bore Ishmael and was 100 years old when Isaac was born, according to (Genesis 16:16): “And Abram was 86 years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram”; and (Genesis 21:5): “And Abraham was 100 years old when his son Isaac was born unto him”. The description of Ishmael whom Hagar put under one of the bushes is the profile of a baby not of a 16 years old teenager.

    So bad for the Jewish Rabbis who did corrupt the Bible to comfort their heinous claim that it’s only through Isaac that Abraham’s offspring would be reckoned.

    Jesus in the Qur’an : “Behold! the angels said “O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ (Maseeh) Jesus the son of Mary held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah. He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity and he shall be (of the company) of the righteous.” Qur’an 3:45-51

    Jesus in the Jewish Talmud : ” “Jesus is in hell and is being punished by being boiled in semen. Christians are boiled in dung.” Talmud, Gittin 57a.

    Turn to Islam.

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    I agree with those who say Pastor Terry Jones would be foolish to do such a thing, at least at this time. On the other hand, would Jones’ opponents be just as outraged if some Muslims burned a Holy Bible or a Torah?? Likewise, this is bad timing. IMO, a better time for Jones to do this would’ve been perhaps 5 years ago, when we had a true American Commander-in-Chief, GW Bush. Remember, Bush/Cheney did keep us safe after 9/11/01. Sadly, now we have an anti-American Marxist-in-Chief who goes around the world apologizing for America, and undoubtedly is making our country less safe.

    Likewise, why should we bring ourselves down to the level of the leftists/democraps (i.e., the left falsely accusing tea parties, conservatives, talk radio, etc. of hate-mongering or inciting violence)?? That is – if Terry Jones carried out this burning plan, and any of our troops were harmed, why put the blame on Jones?? PUT THE BLAME WHERE IT BELONGS – ON AMERICA’S ENEMIES!! To blame Jones would be equivalent to blaming Al Gore for the hostage situation at the Discovery Channel merely because the nut case was inspired by Algore’s propaganda (‘An Inconvenient Truth’)!! Now, can you imagine the reaction of liberals/democraps if we assertively said that Algore is responsible for the actions of that nutcase at the Discovery Channel?????
