    The press is about ratings. They report whatever they think will stir interest. Don't look for moral judgments there.

    As for the media - for whatever reason Pastor Jones may have been courted by the press whereas burnings elsewhere were ignored. I'm just curious why such prominence and reaction to this - just the latest in a series - event caused the strongest reaction.

    It's just amazing to me how so many reactionary people could look at mass murder and the burning of a book and think it was the burning of the book that was so egregious that it demanded all their attention rather than the mass murder.

    When did I say I disliked free speech? Again for the umteenth time have never said he didn't have the right.

    Well put, Theplaydrive.
    Serously I wonder what the reaction would be if everytime an abortion was commited, pro-lifers would go out and kill 12 women. Would liberals say, well, people shouldn't get abortions because they know it will piss people off.

    The problem is, the islam people do NOT believe in free speech! This is immoral, because it is a fundamental human right, and they quite literally are killing to silence it.

    If the islamic people had any respect for free speech this would NOT of happened.
