Pastor Terry Jones is planning to BURN the Holy Book for Muslims, the Qur’an. It is to commemorate the 9th anniversary of the attack on the Twin Towers in New York City.
- To begin with, how does BURNING A BIBLE commemorate a horrendous attack?
- And whatever happened to the Christian Philosophy of Turning the Other Cheek?
Perhaps all this guy is really doing, is trying to get publicity for his church, so he can maybe get himself a television deal? Maybe he’s looking to be the next Jimmy Swaggert or Jerry Falwell?
This STUNT (as President Obama called it) is just that. A chance for an UNKNOWN to try and get known. Sort of how Hitler worked his magic in Germany, and like Hitler, this guy is using the same type of stunts. BURNING RELIGIOUS BOOKS.
Was this really news, or has the Media Exploited this, to get some needed ratings?
Religion aside, and all the bullshit about Freedom of Speech, one has to wonder how some Nazi Wannabee from Gainesville Florida, got such media attention? Was it a slow news day, or what?
This guy runs a Church, with 200 members, so like, how the hell did he suddenly make the front page of all newspapers, and be a lead story on most news reports? Whatever happened to RESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM?
I can see sending this story to the Government, like the State Department & Defense, but really, this guy is simply gunning for publicity. AND HE’S GOTTEN IT.
IF he goes through with this, and ANY DEATHS resulting from this book burning, overseas, then he should be held liable, criminally.
This is no different than yelling FIRE in a crowded theater.
IF he goes through with this book burning, HE SHOULD LOSE ANY TAX BENEFITS TO HIS CHURCH. Hit him in the pocket book as well. SUE THE SHIT OUT OF HIM & HIS CHURCH!
