    No, I don't see the point of burning any book. But, I completely support the right of others to do so. Frankly, I just don't care.

    Nope. It's hypocritical to do so. Have you read the Bible? The people who condemn a religion following the words of a violent book are the ones who belong to another religion following the words of a violent book.

    Can't claim any kind of moral high ground if you think, feel, and act just how your 'enemies' do.

    Re: Are you going to burn a Koran?

    I'm actually up for an International Burn A Symbol Day, burn a symbol of anything you want, bibles, korans, menorah, mummies, money, goats, norwegians, continents, anything is up for conflagration, come one come all, leave no person unoffended or unburned, I promise it will be incendiary.

    But no, I will not be burning a Koran, just the same as I would never burn a Bible or a Tanakh, I have respect for other peoples beliefs.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I'm in Rivrat's boat on this one (it's a great boat to be in). I don't care, I think it's stupid but the dude is more than free to do so. So have fun. I'm inventing non-PC ways of celebrating Patriot Day (Sept 11)

    Not right now. There is plenty of firewood for the campfire. However, when that runs out, there goes the Koran, the Bible, The Catcher in the Rye, and The Way Things Work. After that, I will forget how to build a campfire.

    My wife would kick my ass (it's her's), plus the script is very pretty.
    So no.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    No, since I have better things to do (like working and making money) than join in a bible thumper circle jerk.
