Response to oberliner (Reply #48)

Wed Sep 12, 2012, 01:20 PM

68. Disagree.

We all knew what the response was going to be when this hit the Mideast. It was like poking a rabid dog with a stick. There is no reason to do it, and it is guaranteed to end very badly.

Terry Jones wants nothing more than to start World War III so that Jesus can come back and cart off his followers to heaven that much sooner, and will use anyone and anything to achieve that end. He will then conveniently (and insultingly) hide behind the "freedom of speech" excuse when the shitstorm goes down. The very definition of a coward.

Jones and the person who made this film are just as deranged and responsible for what happened as the Libyan mob. It was a calculated, diabolical act.

I know we disagree on this, but I can't advocate using freedom of speech carte blanche with a total disregard for what will most likely happen as a result, especially when that result is a 99.99% certainty.
