    It's interesting how some people on the forum have figured out how to rig these polls by logging in and out and voting anonymously.

    They do not care if they inflame us and I am pretty sure many Americans who are bitching about the pastor's plan of burning korans do not care if they inflame us. And I am pretty sure that a lot of those people bitching about the koran burnings supported the media when they decided to show the Abu Ghurayb prison abuse photos.
    Must suck to be so easily drawn to become part of the lowest common denominator. I guess gone forever is the time when it is considered a positive to actually ACT better than the lowlifes of the world.

    Must also suck to be so filled with hate and rage. I certainly wouldn't want to go through life like that.

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

    I find the mosque idea and the Koran burning equally stupid. Reasons:

    The mosque idea is a bad show of respect. 3000 people were killed in a Muslim attack, yet they build a sign of Islam in the very place where an Islamic attack has been initiated.Yes, the intentions to show that Muslims are repetent and that they're peaceful is good, but in reality, it shows an opposite view, which disrespects the people that died in a Muslim attack

    The Koran idea is equally stupid. The burning of the Koran will aggravate the Muslims, and undo all the ties that both sides had worked so hard to make. Did you even see that pastor? He looks like he came out of bed or the street. Anyway, it will provoke a Muslims attack, more American deregatory opinion, and maybe a wave of attacks, similar to the one that took place when the American soldiers officially "withdrew" from Iraq.

    Both ideas are stupid.

    This is what cracks me up. The media pretends this is a story, acts offended while they continue to advertise to the entire world the a pastor wants to burn korans on 9-11. Of course I am sure while all the hoopla about this story is going on the media is ignoring real news.

    And how did 'Vincent" vote 57 times?
    You do not have to be logged in to vote in a poll in the poll forum section. So as long as you closed your browser,cleared your cookies you could vote each time without logging in. This is why it is a good idea to make votes public when a poll is in a poll forum section. It may not stop cheating but it would give you a pretty good idea if there is some cheating going on.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    In response to Gen David Petraeus' denunciation of Florida pastor Terry Jones' right to engage in a symbolic protest of the 9/11 attacks by burning copies of the Quran this Sept. 11, President Obama said: "Let me be clear: As a citizen, and as president, I believe that members of the Dove World Outreach Center have the same right to freedom of speech and religion as anyone else in this country."

    Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida lauded Obama's remarks, saying America is "a place where you're supposed to be able to practice your religion without the government telling you you can't."

    It is so infuriating how everyone was speaking for the Ground Zero Mosque a few days ago, despite it enraging so many Americans, but now that some tiny church wants to toast a some korans in their parking lot, everyone is saying how horrible it is and it's morally wrong, blah blah.

    I say roast the korans. Muslims need to learn that they don't have any special privileges. They need to learn that people are going to do things offensive to their religion, and they have to suck it up without throwing a hissy fit. After all, the military burned Bibles--did Christians riot or murder people?

    No. We were like, "Waahh! You should've mailed them back!"

    If any muslims do riot and/or kill people because they're so 'offended', they were already radical, potential terrorists.

    our military leaders (and the commander-in-chief) tell us that this type of action only serves to aid the recruitment efforts of our enemy al qaeda
    and yet these "sunshine patriots" come out in defense of the very actions that give aid to our enemy
    why are these pseudo conservatives so against our own soldiers?

    Yeah -- it's just the mirror image of the political "lean" of all those who not only supported the constitutional right to build a mosque at ground zero, but supported the "in your face" gesture it represents.
