    Re: Pastor who burned Koran demands retribution

    Mr. Jones said in an interview with Agence France-Presse on Friday that he was “devastated” by the killings of 12 people in a violent protest in Afghanistan when a mob, enraged by the burning of a Koran by Mr. Jones’s church, attacked the United Nations compound in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif. “We don’t feel responsible for that,” he told the news service.
    I'm sure he felt devastated, before or after burning the book?
    If he doesn't feel responsible, he should feel guilt. He willingly provoked it knowing the response may be violent.

    But still, the blame ultimately lies with those who caused the murder.

    Oh and lol at genocide. lol

    Fair question. Though I wouldn't call the man a murderer, I call his rhetoric and bookburning irresponsible, he's not responsible for the retaliation killing 12 people but he is certainly responsible for being a bigot.

    Yeah, the genocide comment is uncalled for. However, we live in a free country and the threats of violence by barbarians who get provoked by silly things should not be something to make us feel guilty.

    It is when your actions directly has a link to the deaths of innocent individuals.
    If your any kind of human being, you would feel guilt.

    Re: Pastor who burned Koran demands retribution

    People shouldn't burn the sacred texts of proven murderers/terrorists. People shouldn't murder people over burning a book. Both are true, it's funny to me how many refuse to accept the former and only accept the latter. It's stupid to kill someone for burning a book, but it's also stupid to taunt/mock people who you already know are crazy enough to kill for such an action. If I were that pastor, I'd feel pretty bad.

    Re: Pastor who burned Koran demands retribution

    Mass murder. Burning of a book. Mass murder. Burning of a book. Yeah, those two actions are sure the same and carry the same moral implications!

    A stupid pastor does something potentially provocative. People are mass murdered. If folks cannot figure out that the link between these two events is not only tenuous, but so wildly dissimilar in terms of morality, then they are beyond hope.

    Heck, just the other day a couple of people were attacked at a Dodger Game for wearing Giants caps. One is now fighting for his life. How absolutely stupid it would be to focus on equating the wearing of the giants cap with the beating the guy senseless in terms of assigning responsibility.

    "wull, gee -- if he didn't wear the Giant's cap to a Dodger game......"

    You have gone off the deep end with this one.

    Who is to say the 12 people were killed because the book was burned.

    Maybe the attack was planned long before that.

    Did the murderers run in screaming "burned book"?

    If he knew in advance that burning a Koran would lead to murder, then yes, he is a murderer too. It's not much different than a Mafia Don saying that someone needs to be rubbed out, and then others go and do the killing for him. Technically, the Mafia Don is just as innocent as this hate mongering pastor.
