There's no way in hell you can read what I just wrote and infer that I must be some kind of Bush/Obama/anybody else in politics lover. I don't even mention them. They have nothing to do with this post, or this thread, for that matter.
I sure did believe that post. For the recored I'm pretty liberal about some things, conservative when it comes to raising children (well my children) and conservative with most social issues. Even though I'm conservative I'm not a bible thumper and also have a problem with allot of them. I actually do think this guy is crazy but I find the reaction to him some what amusing.

Are we talking rouge American terrorist militiamen attacking Mecca? They shouldn't get mad at all Americans but at the very least they should be able to invade the states where these men came from.

Re: DWOC's International Burn a Koran Day

dont american citizens who view the koran as vile and hate filled have a right to express their feelings? in america?

while their feelings might be misguided to seemingly most of us here (their disdain towards minority extreme militants colors thier overly broad disdain for all islams) dont they have a right to express their feelings in a civil and organized manner?

the 1st amendment, freedom of speech and expression in this country wasnt put in place to protect the right of americans to say "yahoo for the US!" but to protect the rights and viewpoints of the fringe minority groups to organize and express themselves in a civil manner.

i think when the SC looks at what is protected speech vs hate speech they look towards, in part, the intent of the speaker. thats to say, the court wont block someone from saying something only based upon another persons unreasonable reaction.

if i burn the koran for the purpose of symbolizing my dislike for its teachings and not to incite a riot or jihad, i feel like i have that right in america. the fact that a group of people might be hyper-sensitive to my act shouldnt allow the courts or gov't to preclude me from doing so.

to decide what is and what isnt protected speech based upon others hyper-sensitive reactions would leave a mute world.

idk thoo i spent most of my time smoking tie stick and bowling at the ROTC. i dont really remember much.

Didn't know they stopped.
Oh oh, here's what I meant; I can't wait till people start publicly gathering people together to burn the Bible again in the name of Christianity being a bunch of horse poo because Christianity is a dangerous religion with dangerous people. There we go.

I don't think anyone here is arguing whether or not they have a right to, they certainly do. But the fact that they are doing it in the name of Islam being bad and showing their disdain for radical Muslims, they fail to see that they just come off looking like a bunch of stupid radical Christians.

But I read an article about this on Yahoo News and a user comment on there said it best: "If radical Christians want to piss off radical Muslims, why intervene? Let them wipe each other off the face of the earth so regular people can have some peace and quiet."

Neanderthal or no, what terms would you suggest for dealing with radical sons if islam?
AND they do themselves NO good service in building a Mosque near the 9/11 site. No good can come of that. AND they knew that in advance but are trying to do it anyway. You have to be responsible for your own actions......even stupid ones. If they look to assimilate in a meaningful, peaceful way that contributes positively to society.....this isn't it

That's the sad irony. They are acting like the Taliban to show how much they hate the Taliban.

I'm not saying building a Mosque near the 9/11 site is in a good taste but just like Over said about the Koran burning, they certainly have the right to do so. Albeit wrong or right. And you have no idea what those people building in Mosque have in store in terms of "good service". They might surprise the community and actually do some charitable work towards NYC.

Or they could just be a sleeper cell like everyone expects them to be. Whatever. *Shrugs*

They could.....try
AND you can rest assured, if "they" were a big enough dog, they would. And maybe they are. They are good at that sort of thing........

You don't have to be top dog to do damage....No men are more dangerous than those who have nothing to lose.

Re: DWOC's International Burn a Koran Day

It's a community center with a prayer room, not a mosque. And the way some people talk you'd think a theme park reenacting planes flying into buildings was being built. Not sure I'll ever understand the connection between building this center and burning a holy book.
