Because of this, why dont we threaten to do harm to any Muslms living in the U.S.?

I dont understand how they can go and threaten violence like this over a stupid fucking book, have carried out their threats in the past, and nothing is done other than to squash some preachers 1st amendment right. If the old coot wants to burn some books, let him without him fearing for his life.

Agreed.

And the message is what is important.

Ever hear of the "Golden Rule"?

"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you"

It is hard at times, but when you talk about being the "good" guys, you have to act like the good guys.

In other words, don't stoop to thier level. Show that you are above the rhetoric.

Of course, that does not mean you should turn the other cheek.

America is always saying how great America is. It is in these types of circumstances that America can show just how great it is, or it can show that it is not what it says it is.

Islam and the quran has never been peaceful or tolerant, as such should not be tolerated. The quran should not be compared to the bible, more like "the anarchists cookbook".

The kook in Florida has a first amendment right to burn a bunch of korans, bibles or cook books. Just as there is a first amendment right to burn our flag. Now if it was the government burning the books so they could not be read, we would have a big problem.

Great Lakes 4x4. The largest offroad forum in the Midwest - View Single Post - Burn the Quran?



Islam, on the other hand is more like a political philosophy than a religion. Some countrys are communist, some are socialist, some are republics, Some are Islamic. They hide behind the cloak of religion, while turning a blind eye to jihadist. Publicly they speak of peace and tolerance, privately they support terrorisn, and taqiyya provides them absolution.

http://www.homesoverseas.co.uk/news/...ance/8971-1002

Our laws have a basis in freedom and equality, Islam is about secularity and penalty for anyone not of islam. Jizya is a good example, a seperate tax structure for muslim and non-muslims, as defined by sharia law. Think of it like Affimative Action for religion.

The First Amendment does not cover acts of sacrilege.
It does cover the right to assemble peacefully, burning scripture whether it be christian, satanic, or muslim is NOT a peaceful act.

I'm pretty sure you're totally wrong. Please show me where it is against the law to perform a sacrilegious act or that they are excluded by the first amendment.

That being said, we should have no problem with them coming over here. Our laws will forbid them from doing what they want. right?

He may be allowed to burn the Quran, but I don't believe his local fire department gave him a permit to burn.

I never said it was against the law to perform sacrilegious acts,
I will say however that it takes poor moral fiber.

Anything that insights riots (and this has) can not possibly be considered peaceful, the First Amendment only covers one type of assembly, peaceful.

It covers ALL religions.

A little update for you all in case you havent seen it on the news... Reverend Terry Jones received a 'sign from god' not to burn the Koran after all - shortly after being cautioned by NY police when his plane landed there. The press are also having a field-day in reporting his cult workers work unpaid to make furniture that he and his wife Sylvia sell on eBay and were told they would 'go to hell' if they refused...












............and please note I am not saying any of the above is true ( except for the not burning the Koran) - just showing how wonderfully Machiavellian the media is...

Yeah, We can't share the love of God with people if we are blowing them up. That's what Christianity is about. Loving people, that is. Not blowing them up.
