    what the hell are you talking about? what does not taking the "high road" have to do with taking away anyone's rights or torturing anyone?

    I say this retard has the constitutional right to burn the freakin quran. i support his right to do so, whether or not anyone likes it or not. just as i support some idiotic muslims right to burn the bible or US flag, whether I like it or not.

    all this pansy arsed bull**** about "wah, wah, he shouldn't burn the quran because it will make the muslims mad" is pure unadulterated horsepucky. no one gives a rat's ass that all the stupid stuff they do makes us mad, so why should we give a damn it something pisses them off. all that does is make us look weak in their eyes and THAT, much more than burning a quran, is what will lead to more attacks and greater violence on their part.

    The thing is...it's well within someone's rights to be a douchebag in the U.S. And I support their rights to be that person, if that's what they wish. I also support MY RIGHTS to call that person what I think they are.
    Now, why would you think I was refering to you here -- especially if you think it doesn't apply?

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

    While I voted no, as there were not many choices, I personally would not burn any book. That being said, I do believe that first amendment rights should be protected and the church is more than free to do so. I also do not agree that the US should allow the exercise of rights from within our nation to be dictated by the whims of terror groups abroad.

    Good idea? No. Protected right? Yes.

    Hight road? Only trotted out when people don't like a protected right someone is exercising. Like the hypocrites who claim burning anything or everything else is a form of free speech, but burning a Quran is hatemongering. Constitution's a bitch sometimes eh?
    ďI think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whatís being proposed here, heíd agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.Ē - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I was just being sure to rebut you, just in case.

    why would you defend similarly inflaming the islamic population
    In this country we have FREEDOM OF SPEECH. We have the right to do as we wish. In Islam-o-nazi land ... things are different .... however, burning the American flag is considered acceptable to those mindless apes ... so **** THEM and the camel they rode in on.

    but since this is the action of a private person who seeks to vent his misplaced anger in a misplaced manner, there is no rational fear of a fall
    The People are the State. And judging by recent DOJ reports... the People likewise have a nasty tendency of acting on their own agency.

    It makes you look STRONG. You are STRONG enough to take the punch. You are STRONG enough to not throw away your values for fear. You are STRONG enough to take the high road.

    I think you are confusing strong with stupid.
