quran burning VS Flag Burning.

So, I have caught just a glimpse of the nearly attempted quran burning.

Am I getting it right? Is the FL preacher not burning the quran because America (meaning the FBI, or some agency or the GOV) fears muslim retaliation?
BUT, They get to build the mosque near 'ground zero'?
They SHOULDN'T build it because THEY fear AMERICAN (Warm Blooded Patriots) retaliation.

I see it like this. The quran is protected. The burning of a quran is a protected act. This guy was bullied, or convinced not to burn it,

BUT

Its fine to burn an American Flag? A flag burner should be afraid of retaliation!
A flag burner should be afraid of MY retaliation.


THEY are exercising the Constitution's freedom of religion, but the FL preacher cannot exersice his freedom of speech?

Is this total horse shit, or what?

Yes, it is horse shit. I've had exactly the same thoughts. If they can burn flags, why can't we burn korans?

They're both protected forms of free speech. That preacher isn't a hero, he's just using this little publicity stunt to drum up business. On top of the church, it looks like he runs several for-profit businesses from the church offices.

Give me a dollar.

We can. No one made him stop, and he's saying it might be back on now.

We can. He can. Doesn't mean we should. They burn flags and whatnot because they are ignorant scum of the Earth. Should we really stoop to the same level?

For what it's worth, I hope the flag burners over there will eat shit and die. I just don't see the benefit in imitating their practices over here. It just makes us look equally stupid, and in the end, it doesn't do anything to stop, change, or punish them. If anything, it only fuels their passion. Fuck them and their passion. I'm not going to let their hate turn me into a racist or a scumbag, and as a country, we shouldn't let their tactics cause us to change an important part of our belief system (i.e. freedom of religion).

Just my .02.

I seriously hope we as "Americans" consider ourselves to be of a higher standard than the radical groups in the shithole middle east.

And if that offends any middle easteners on the board.. why would you come here if you didn't think it too.

The muslims in question still live in the 14th century, like the crusades just ended. Symbolism is very powerful to them, they routinely make pilgrimages to holy sites where the bones of their saints are said to be. Christianity did away with that sort of thing long ago with few exceptions. But the muslims think we are just like they are, IE if they burn our flag it really upsets us.

I agree with you completely, there is no reason for us to imitate their caveman mindset. It is ridiculous to do so.

Should these people be free to do it if they want? Absolutely! But to me it is just silly.

They act like them burning American flags over there is something new in reaction to this whole deal. They have always done that. Fuck those crazy extremists over there. They just have another excuse to do so.

If it were up to me it would be a felony to burn the US flag. Since we have separation of church and state, I would have to allow burning of religious material. If you really want to be that way. But you just make yourself look like a fool. Why not burn a muslim instead?

Why would you burn a Quran when it works great for toilet paper.

Why should we force ourselves to take the moral high ground just because we're the Americans? Do you ever think that might be the exact reason these piss-ants are willing to go toe-to-toe with us? Abdul and his rag-headed buddies cut American's heads off with knives and publish the video of the victim's screaming agony for the furtherance of their religion. We're all "Well, they're just ignorant savages" it's ok. But Heaven forbid somebody defile the damned quran. OMG the world's gonna stop turning because somebody burned a blasphemous pack of lies. But they jail and murder people for having the Holy Bible.

I hold Israel in high regard because they fight fire with fire and have the balls to stand behind their actions.

If we're gonna prevent the planet from being taken over by these jack-off artists, we'd better get our heads out of our asses and play the same game they play.

I think the koran should be kept safe as an important historical document. Burn muslims, instead. Exterminate them like the rats they are, all of them. I really don't have a problem with that.
