    Default Burning Quran

    It is depressing that someone would plan such a day. Also, the last few months have given credence to the idea that the US is at war with Islam.

    The best point I've seen on the whole Mosque issue and things following it, is notice around what time The "Ground Zero Mosque" became a big issue. It was reported about 5 months before it became this huge issue, and for 5 months no-one cared. Oh, but elections are coming up soon, quick lets find something to make an issue out of!

    It seems so odd that all this Hatred towards Islam is pouring out all of a sudden when a year ago, it seemed like no-one really cared.

    I don't even get the point of the burning of the Quran, all it will do is likely piss off the "good people" the terrorist won't care, they already hate us, hell it might even help them more. So if there any point to it, other then to express how much they hate Islam, with no real reasoning for their hate?

    It's all just part of a disgusting game of misdirection, the Quran burning. the "Ground Zero" mosque controversy, all of it.

    Meanwhile the largest transfer of private to public debt in the history of the US is taking place. For years the financial sector and much of corporate America lobbied for deregulation. "The market knows best." they said with a grin. Yet when the market woke up and realized that a large portion of their assets were junk, they took a 180 degree turn in position. Now the market was wrong, mark-to-market accounting needed to be suspended, and they all desperately needed public money or their would surely be martial law the next day.

    Now you have beneficiaries of the "privatize the gains and socialize the losses" game pumping money into PACs to tell you the "dangers" of socialist programs for the poor and middle class.

    Welcome the Crazy Town. There are no morals or principles, only people trying to hold onto money and power. Ignore the real issues, "Hey look at the birdie!" *Throws some fake "issue" out for the media to gobble up*.

    I'm glad that I'm not a Christian. With representatives like Fred Phelps, Dove International, Pope Benedict, and Pat Robertson, it would be embarrassing to have my faith outlined by such individuals and groups. The Christian community really out to stand up against these bigoted, arrogant jackasses -- starting by donating their charitable resources elsewhere.

    I think they should burn as many as they like for one simple reason the muslim community (Al-Furqaan Foundation) has said that for every quran burnt they will donate 50 copies to schools and other public places

    Do you really mean this and actually belive it?

    I'm personally against book burning, I think that desecrating books/monuments is a pretty contemptible thing to do. However I support their right to burn these books if it's their property. I think it's quite a sad state of affairs that people will be in fear for their lives after the book burning. Burning bits of paper reduces the creator of the universe to tears? Come on, it's inexcusable to resort to violence just because someone threw a copy of your favourite book onto a bonfire.

    They're letting a few bad apples ruin the entire bunch. I don't CARE if most Muslims hate America. They have the right to their opinions, and we have the right to ours, but we shouldn't let other people bother us. That goes for both sides. If you dislike Islam, fine, just don't try to make everybody think like you do, because it isn't going to happen. You have the right to state your opinions, just don't go and hurt people physically, emotionally, or mentally. Can't we all just be educated? I don't agree with parts of the Muslim fate, like child brides, but I understand that it's pretty much the norm over there, like strip clubs are in downtown Orlando. I'm planning on reading the Quran as soon as I get my assignment done (which I should be working on now) and if it isn't my thing, I get that, but I'm not going to be a complete douche about it. Some people like blue, some people like pink; Some people practice Christianity, some practice Islam. It isn't that hard to be accepting.

    This too. I'm sure God,(Allah, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, what have you) is crying his eyes out because you're burning a mass-produced book. (/Sarcsm.) If I were a deity, I'd probably laugh and facepalm at the same time because 1.) people think that it'll make everything better and 2.) some other people would get their panties in a twist over THAT and resort to violence, of all things. You have the printing press now, it's not so much of a big deal.

    I'd protest at the church, but I live 2 hours away from there and the Al-Furqaan Foundation is being awesome in response.

    To be completely frank, there's no word in the english language that can describe how much I hate the far right. I want to grab one of those losers and just start shaking some sense into them, maybe slap them around a bit. This is just one more Koran tossed onto the proverbial fire for me.

    Hippies may be retarded as well, but at least they don't hurt people.

    Which part? The part about private debt socialization is well documented.

    If you are asking about the morals and principles comment, sure there are politicians that have them, they are just few and far between. Absolutely I believe that the political parties manufacture dividing line issues to avoid approaching the real ones.

    Whether this story in particular is being used as one or not I am unsure, but the larger theme of the West vs. Islam definitely is. We certainly can't afford to ostracize 22 percent of the earth's population.
