    You're not very informed, are you? You don't even understand what your defending.

    "Book burning" refers to the ritual destruction by fire of books or other written materials. Usually carried out in a public context, the burning of books represents an element of censorship and usually proceeds from a cultural, religious, or political opposition to the materials in question....
    Book Burning

    Since ancient times, people from virtually all religions and societies have burned books as a form of censorship, protest, or hate mongering.

    As long as there have been materials deemed lewd or blasphemous, there have been attempts to ban them. Those burning books as an act of censorship on ideological grounds often display religious intolerance, such as that exhibited during the Spanish Inquisition or the reign of the Taliban....

    History of Book Censorship


    Censurship and religious intolerance....is that your idea of freedom?
    You support censoring Terry Jones, so what are you mad about?

    Only the idiots would want his rights violated for burning Biles and Torahs.

    I love how the folks that support birning Old Glory as a sacred right are the same people that want to throw this dude in jail for burning books. Political correctness sucks!

    Obviously a lot of people are frightened to death of the savages and would rather give up their rights. It's really quite pathetic.

    Good morning, apdst.

    : Ironic, isn't it, that there always seem to be different rules and standards for some people? I can't think of any country on this planet that approves burning their own flag! :

    Terry Jones didn't plan to burn the Korans in Egypt or Libya.

    WTH does that have to do with my post? I'm talking about people here in the USA who are willing to give up certain freedoms to appease terrorists, which is exactly what you see being demonstrated here in this thread.

    Give me one good reason otherwise why this man should not burn a Koran. You will say because it's insensitive or offensive, and that is completely irrelevant and is no reason to limit any freedoms.

    What freedom are we giving up... The freedom to start a fire in a public park?
