    Re: Does Anyone Think Burn a Koran Day is a Good Idea?

    Personally I think that it's dumb to burn any book period. Though I will admit that on occasion I do wish that the Koran never existed. And before anyone gets into a tiff I would and will say the same thing about the Christian bible. And no I'm not an athiest, or an agnostic. I just think that organized religion is nothing more than a power grab.

    Yep. The boat scene in NYC was cool. After that I just questioned how that little fire kept them all warm.

    Yeah, but then Joseph Smith would have had to have gotten a real job.

    I think the Q'uran burning and the location of the NYC mosque are of equal stupidity. Both protected but in poor taste.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I don't see an option that reflects my views.

    Do I see anything wrong with burning ANY book? No.

    Will I be burning any books. No.

    I don't support or encourage the idea, but if someone else wants to do it, it won't bother me in the slightest.

    It's a short step from burning books to burning people and it's a long damn fall afterwards.

    No, all it does is inflame hatred, and will probably result in the death of US troops who might not've died otherwise, or who would've at least died in service of something more meaningful than defending this stupidity and hatred.

    I completely agree. They have every right to build a mosque and burn a book, but it would be in poor taste, "not a good idea", to do so. Maybe people who are so adamant in supporting the idea of this mosque should see this parallel.
