first of all your analogy is cretinous . its like me shouting fire in a theater in cincinnati and a bunch of morons stampede in a theater in Yemen because their leader claimed someone in america shouted fire
secondly, it was not forseeable that towelterrorists in yeman would go beserk. it is foreseeable people would panic in a theater if someone yelled fire
What he did and how he talks is less than Christian. I would like to know where he was educated. because it doesn't seem to have been with traditional Christian beliefs.
The thing is this -- he had the right to burn the Koran under the First Amendment, no doubt about it. Legal right and good idea are not the same thing, however. I'd be the last one to say everybody needs to go around being politically correct, but I don't think you have to act like an asshole. Especially when you purport to follow Jesus.
2) I support the constitution- I have taken two oaths to defend it
3) The people who did the killing are scum and impalement would be the proper sentence
4) towelterrorists will kill with no provocation at all-and this has been proven thousands of times
The restrictions on speech are, in my opinion, for the most part unconstitutional. A religious leader should not have to give up his right of free speech when he is ordained.
You are arguing with yourself, I think. thinking out loud maybe? I did not make those connections.Secondly, there is nothing about burning a Quran that forces people to riot or cause violence (no muslim in the US did any such thing).
Just fyi: According to his video of the burning, he did it because he was convicting the Koran itself of crimes including rape and murder.Secondly, he burnt the Quran to protest Islam and Sharia law.
His is not a plain old free speech issue. There are extenuating circumstances. He is culpable. Whether our government chooses to take action or not is probably a matter of diplomacy. However he will not be the first criminal to "get away with it" due to politics.If you are going to hold such as the standard to causing "intentional" violence, and for filing charges, then all one needs to do to shut down speech, of anyone, is to threaten violence
Yes it was foreseeable as evidenced by General Petraeus foreseeing it.secondly, it was not forseeable that towelterrorists in yeman would go beserk. it is foreseeable people would panic in a theater if someone yelled fire
