I'm sick of these people who are so gung ho to burn religious books, in the safety of their yard in Florida where they know they are safe and face no backlash. Why let innocent UN workers have all the fun of being beaten to death?!

So, I 100% support you in your freedoms to burn books...but if you really stand by your convictions go do it in front of the people you are trying to send the message to.

:0) Stop hiding despicable behavior behind the safety of "freedom of speech" and take your message to the people you are talking to.

Go on...go buy your ticket. We can't wait to hear all about it upon your return.

1. Why don't you ask Jesse Jackson to go to a KKK training camp?
It makes just about as much sense

2. You think he is safe because he is in Florida?
I doubt it. I'm sure we will hear of some fatwa soon.

3. I don't support anybody's 'right' to do that in Afghanistan
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 10:17 AM by RZM
Because (as far as I know), burning a Qur'an is not a right in Afghanistan. It is against the law there and I expect Americans to follow the laws of other countries when they are abroad.

However, I support his right to do so in the US 100 percent, because burning a Qur'an is permitted here.

What you are implying is that you wouldn't mind if he were killed for what he did.

Why not just come out and say that?

5. Why not direct some anger towards those that killed
just because some nobody in Florida burned a book?

He can burn his book wherever he wishes to (local codes on open fires not withstanding).

So you think he should be killed for what he has done? How progressive.
