Default Koran bruning controversy

When I saw the news, there was a Gainesville, Florida-based pastor who wants to burn copies of the Koran on the 9/11 anniversary coming up. The State Department wasn't happy on that action. If that wasn't enough, Muslims worldwide protested and burned effigies of the conterversial pastor. That would endanger U.S. trops and civilains in Afghanistan. Do you think the Koran bruning conterversy seem too rough on the Muslims?

Muslims aren't just going to treat it like is one church doing it. It will most likely lead to the deaths of many other christians, and possibly american soldiers as well.

They'd probably do all that anyways.

Similar to the assassination order placed on Salman Rushdie? He will likely be more of a target, but I still believe that this will effect more than just his church.

Perhaps but those who would be targeting were probably waiting for an "excuse" to target in the first place that way they get more support.

First and foremost, let me compare this to the building of the new 'mosque', although I can admit that it is a much more aggressive act. But that said, let's apply the same argument that others use. Let's see if I can dig up some hypocrisy, and say that hey, they have a right to burn the koran, it is after all, only a book. So why not let them? Why let public protest stand in the way HERE, and not in other cases? I mean, it isn't as if people haven't burned bibles and other religious documents before, hell, some have burned the American Flag. Suck it up. Radical Atheists (a term I find slightly humorous) have burned bibles, Christians have burned books that contradict or oppose their beliefs, but I haven't seen a huge public outburst about any of that. Why the National Headlines now?

That serves as more of a perspective on how poor the argument of 'they have a right to __________' REALLY is, and is not necessarily my actual opinion on the subject. Also serves to show the opposite side of 'Islamophobia', those that pander to the Muslim Community, because it is 'politically correct' to do so.

In my actual opinion, the guy is a moron. Why would you do it? What positive outcome could this possibly have, what cause could this sort of action support? I see nothing that stands to be gained. It is almost certainly what it appears to be: one christian extremist bent on demeaning another religion, and could quite easily be an attempt to foster more hatred towards muslims.

If this is some kind of protest to the new 'mosque', then hey, you're doing it wrong buddy.

Which shows how extremely flawed their views are. One man decides "I wanna burn the holy book of the Islamic religion", and all of a sudden, its America's fault, or all Christians? Please. EssTeeEffYou.

The sad reality is though, that this is actually likely to happen. A sad world we live in.

While I don't agree with what they were trying to do, I'm honestly not surprised something like this popped up. What I'm actually surprised by is this being the first event, that I'm aware has gained media attention and/or happened, to take place involving the Koran since 9-11. Its a glorified Anti-Muslim sentiment such as this are so asinine its ridiculous.

Actually the ridiculous part of it all was part of an interview I caught with the Pastor in question. Now while I can't quote him directly off hand, the general gist of the message was: "I encourage other Muslim people to come down and burn the Koran in defiance to the radical portions of your religion". When asked if he thought this would dissuade or otherwise ostracize a good portion of Muslims, he could not see why it would.

In this case the fool is acting upon what I can only call idiocy.

This is why the US is stupid in many aspects. People want the freedom to do whatever they want, but the actions of an individual can affect an entire group of people. We need more rules on what people can and cannot do.
