    TED,
    Not entirely in agreement with you, but had to thank you for the funny.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The media's being responsible for once.

    The ugliest Americans get ratings. But in the case of anti-Muslim bigotry, that ugliness can have a price:

    *empowering others to act out on their fears - e.g. coverage of the NY Cultural Center protests led to wing-nut preachers thinking they could take it a step further

    *these events get replayed on world news and end up fueling radical extremists to take actions against Christians and Americans.

    *strategic relationships with certain tribes in Afghanistan are jeopardized as tribal leaders have to answer to their 'base'. This must be incredibly frustrating to the men on the ground who have put in months, years winning over Muslims, then to have it all dashed to pieces by a handful of ignorant a-holes like Terry Jones.

    FOX News should be running stories of Christian leaders starting to reach out to their Islam counterparts. We saw the Muslims in other countries cheering on 9/11 -- but what better way to shut them up, undercut their extremist leaders than to show Muslims being embraced as part of the American religious tapestry.

    I'm stunned at the so-called Christians, those protesting the Cultural Center and those remaining silent; they have forgotten how powerful forgiveness is. It's a core message in the Bible. Heal the wounds of 9/11 by embracing the Cultural Center. Imagine broadcasting the images of Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and 9/11 families standing outside the Cultural Center on its opening. Let that be how the Muslim world sees us.

    Remind me again, who was it that made this guy front page news?

    And if we did that, Al Qaida would dissolve and would hand over Bin Laden, right?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I'm not afraid of Osama bin Laden, but I am afraid of this nonsense.

    When Sharia comes to America, it won't come in the form of an invading army, it'll come when we let it in because we're too afraid of hurting their feelings. The day Muslims can control public criticism through threats of violence is the day that we stop being a republic with free speech and start becoming a society coerced into respecting a certain kind of worldview.

    No, maybe folks in Afgh. or wherever the **** will be less inclined to take homemade bombs and try to blow the **** out of americans occupying their country. Possibly less will join the taliban. But its too late theyve already burned and exploded all sorts of crap over this.

    If it isn't via contract law, it'll require a Constitutional amendment.

    Somehow I don't think that's going to make it through as a feel-good measure.

    It doesn't have to be legal coercion, just an atmosphere of fear so great that nobody has the guts to criticize.

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah, the day the United States as a nation was any such place, it wouldn't be the United States anymore.

    Somehow I don't think that's going to happen either.
