DWOC's International Burn a Koran Day
 
Dove World Outreach Center has decided to hold a nice commiseration event on September 11th that involves [URL="http://news.google.com/news/search?aq=f&pz=1&cf=all&ned=us&hl=en&q=International+Burn+a+Koran+Day"]burning Qur'ans[/URL]. If they go through with it how long do you guys think these nice people have before they meet their maker?


p.s. Their mortgage lender has called in the balance of their loan and their property insurance has been cancelled by their insurer.

That could get uglier than the Redskin tailgate party this weekend......

Yes DWOC, you have the right to free speech. That doesn't make expressing yourself in this way a good idea. At all.

This is one of those free speech issues. The same as the freedom of religion. Our constitution will allow you to do whatever you want as long as you are not hurting yourself, anyone else, or their property.

If you own the Qua'an, you are free to burn it. If you own the land you are free to build a place of worship there. If you own the flag, you can burn it too. Doesn't mean everyone has to agree with it. I sure don't, but who am I to take away your constitutional rights.

Basically I think extremism of all kinds leads to nothing but problems. What I want to know is how do we get to this point nine years later. Was this happening in 2001? Is this just media talking heads whipping up fear and feeding it to those willing to listen. Our nation is so messed up right now sometimes I wonder how much worse does it have to get before people snap out of it.

Very interesting about the insurance being canceled. One can only sit back and wait for this to unfold.

Sure, they are entitled to do so under freedom of speech.

That doesn't change the fact that this is the dumbest, most counterproductive idea that I've heard in a long time.

Nice "outreach," Dove.

Teaching tolerance, one crispy Quran at a time.

there is a distinction with what is constitutionally protected speech and what is not.

burning a cross is not protected speech, it is hate speech.

the classic yelling "FIRE!" in a movie theater is not protected speech

burning the american flag is protected speech.

i guess the burning of the Koran falls somewhere in the penumbra of the gray area betwen burning a cross and burning a flag.

this could be interesting for con law scholars.

Good point about the hate speech. I wonder if since they own the books, and it is private property if that applies.

What, your wife replaces half-empty bottles with more and more too?

Seriously, this is a stupid, stupid idea. I think my views on religion have been pretty well established, but there is no good that can come of this. What exactly are they hoping to accomplish? Let everyone know that they don't like Islam? Ok, done. This is just going to provoke more violence.

So this guy wants to burn some Koran's and all I see are people talking about how this will promote violence. They want to build a Mosque and no one talks about fear of violence. HMMMMM I wonder why that is.

MAYBE because one is a non aggresive, standard approach to congregational worship, and the other is an aggresive and intolerant act of violence against a book which is considered sacred to millions + of non aggressive members of a recognized religious group? Maybe?
