Bad idea. Nothing good could possibly come from it.

Yet another example of those that love God preaching hate. Extreamist Muslims are idiots, so are extreamist Christians.

I don't know what it will show about tolerant Muslims are, but it will certainly show how intolerant Christians can be.

The preacher that is wanting to burn the quaran is setting an example that Islam is a false religion and by burning the book is his way of saying it.
By burning the quaran is not the best idea into winning muslims the hearts of muslims to Christ.
By doing this you will see Christians targeted and killed because of it. How many Christians will go out and kill muslims? None.

As a lover of books and a strong believer in freedom of speech I abhor the idea of buring any text, whether it be the Koran, Bible, Book of Satan, Book of Buddha, Book of the Dead, or my phone book. The written word is powerful stuff that lasts for generations. Destroying any text looses valuable knowledge for the peoples of the future.

I believe in freedom of speech, and I extend that belief to having the right to burn a book, but I find it an ignorant act that has little benifit. Think of the last two times someone called for the burning of books, Didn't work out so well for Hitler, and the burning of all the Mayan texts by the Spanish in the sixteenth century caused the loss of the great knowledge of possibly one of the worlds greatest ancient peoples.

Of course I would have spelled Extremist correctly.

Yea, I know a few Muslims I would break bread with any day. And some "God fearing" Christians I would not want to share a road with.

We don't need to show you an intolerant Christian, there are two articles posted above about one.

Personally, it's a book and they need to get over it. Go ahead and burn a bunch of Bibles, copies of the Constitution, Carl Hiaasen novels, 3 Stooges DVDs, or Doors albums. They're just things (albeit really cool things in many cases) and have no supernatural powers or divine elements.

However, I would like to see this preacher talked out of it because it will expose our troops who are literally surrounded by uneducated Muslims who's need for 14th century style revenge doesn't differentiate between "a Florida attention-whore preacher" and a 21 year-old Marine sergeant.

Many of these people live in a world where there is no separation between church and state, and where the church also provides the justice system. Our freedoms are alien to them.

So if I burned a bible, would that show that Christianity is a false religion? I might have to try that... (agree with Keith, though, that its a bad idea to burn books, no matter how mythical they are)

you really think Christians do not kill for thier religion? Have you forgotten about the many, many wars waged over religion, especially that one?

well, since you did say Christians wont kill Muslims...first hit by Google (yep, its even a Christian web site)

http://www.thinkchristian.net/index....ttack-muslims/


I have no problem with anyone and thier faith, but blind faith is moronic, especially when you make ridiculous claims with no facts, and obviously have no idea what you are talking about.
