    noodle what are you thinking. it would not be a lot easier. that would make you no better than the crazies that do messed up stuff like this. i can't say it enough and i'll keep saying it no matter how many times i have to. do not associate all muslims with these ****ed up extremists. please.

    Re: Pastor who burned Koran demands retribution

    I can say that the Pastor in Florida knew he was going to set off a firestorm among Radical Islamic Cultists, and he should also know that he has put himself and everyone in the You Tube video's life at risk for what was not a Christian act.



    Fighting Radicals by antagonizing them only breads more of what you claim to oppose.

    He would have made a much better point had he just made a quality video to post explaining what makes Islam a dangerous Cult and not a true religion.

    I believe Terry Jones is a halfwit who is dangerous and hateful.

    As to those who killed what is now said to be 12 people with 2 of them being beheaded? We need to make it clear to the world that what was done by Jones was not a representation of how World is or acts and that by going on a rampage they only encourage people like Jones to keep doing things like book burnings.

    As to what we should do to Jones? Nothing. Make sure he gets no press unless of until he is Killed by Radicals.

    There's simply no common sense or logic in your demands. He is not a murderer and he did not commit manslaughter, supplying the excuse for another person's decision to commit murder is not the same as committing manslaughter let alone as committing murder. Secondly there is no logical basis to your demand to extradite him to Afghanistan.

    No.

    It was the minister's book, or one of his parishioners. And in the United States that means the book can be destroyed by it's ower.

    If a bunch of cave men in another country decide to riot over that, the other country needs to learn how to control their cave men. There's no need for anyone in the United States to do anything, and certainly nothing should be done in the way of banning future private-property disposal sessions.

    No.

    He burned a book.

    That's it.

    He is not responsible for the insane reactions of devotees of an unsane religion 12,000 miles away.

    Makes perfect sense. After all, the corollary to the above statement is that Fighting radicals by doing everything they want and treating them with the utmost respect and never ever saying a harsh word against them will certainly turn them to the side of Jesus and love.

    Right?

    He would have made a much better point had he just made a quality video to post explaining what makes Islam a dangerous Cult and not a true religion.
    Then what would they have done with the marshmallows?

    He's in the United States, there's nothing wrong with burning a koran, anywhere, and there's nothing illegal with burning one here, unless it's tied to a muslim. That's probably not kosher, but that's not what happened anyway.

    The First Amendment gives Americans the right to commit controlled arson in protest.

    I believe Terry Jones is a halfwit who is dangerous and hateful.
    Doesn't matter. He's a citizen with full rights and freedoms in the United States, and that means he's free to cook the books in that special way of his.

    As to those who killed what is now said to be 12 people with 2 of them being beheaded? We need to make it clear to the world that what was done by Jones was not a representation of how World is or acts and that by going on a rampage they only encourage people like Jones to keep doing things like book burnings.
    No. Burnin the books is how the freedoms in the United States most certainly works, and crazy beheadings and murders by ISLAMIC TERRORISTS (to use words the guy in White House banned) are how other parts of the world works. Terry Jones and his posse possibly did some in the world a favor by putting the lie to the silly notion promoted by Bush and defended by Obama that Islam is a religion of peace.

    Islam is a religion that leads to the most heinous acts of violence seen in the modern world.

    As to what we should do to Jones? Nothing. Make sure he gets no press unless of until he is Killed by Radicals.
    So censorship is your solution. Don't do anything to deal with the crazy people who cut heads off, just keep walking on eggshells and hoping the yolk's not getting on you.

    Because everyone knows the easier option is always the best one.

    Killing hundreds of thousands of innocents CERTAINLY won't be like directing an oil pipeline to put out a fire.

    True enough. We're all free to call him a moron.

    I forgot that isolated incidents apply universally. Also, does this mean you're arguing that Stalin and Hitler were Muslims now? As I'd say they still hold the title for most heinous acts in the modern world so far.

    Ah, a nice strawman to top it off. I don't recall councilman mentioning anything about censoring him, just ignoring him, which works for me. Attention Whores live on attention, after all. Actually, that whole quote has basically nothing to do with what it's responding to.

    You are correct. In the US, his First Amendment rights allow him to, legally, burn the Koran. The question isn't whether he had the right... of course he did. The question is, does it make sense, it is the prudent thing to do? For example, you are a pedestrian walking across the street. The light is red, so you have the right of way. A car, not caring about the right of way, comes speeding your way. Do you keep walking, because you have the right of way... getting hit in the process?

    Sometimes exercising your rights solely because you can is pretty stupid. Words and actions have consequences, even if the are a right or are legal.

    Yeah, the alternative is to ignore the looney preacher and do as much damage as possible to the looney terrorists.


    Having the right to do something doesn't always mean someone should do something. Just because the WBC has the right to picket funerals doesn't mean they should picket funerals.
    Not the point being made by the loonies posting here. Some want a man exercising his freedoms in America to be held criminally liable for the antics of animals overseas. Others want him banned from the media.

    Clearly there's an easy solution to the picketing of funerals by lawyers pretending to be religious nuts. Make it a misdemeanor for anyone attending a funeral to break the legs of anyone protesting that funeral. The fine shall be $10 per tibia, with a maximum of 1 night in jail.

    That'll put a stop to that nonsense real fast. Mayor Snorkum has no idea what pestering lawyers has to do with terrorists and animals in Afghanland, but you saw something.
