    Oh crap, I just heard the FBI has become involved with trying to talk him out of it! What the, ---is this country coming to?
    Where's the FBI investigating El Gamal, Imam Rauf, Daisy Kahn, CAIR,
    They are both, the Mosque, the Koran burning, inflamatory.
    Yes... that's why EVERY YEAR when somebody says 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas' it's not reported for 3 days.

    I prefer my news and political analysis to not be over sensationalized, hyper-partisan tripe which panders to the lowest common denominator....which is where our media coverage currently sits. I support free market capitalism; but that also comes with responsibilities. One of which is that we cannot collectively act like the biggest dumbass ever born who can only keep their attention focused for 3 seconds before some blinking light will make us forget all about what the hell we were just talking about. We have to behave like we're humans, not monkeys.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    In a perfect world, this hate-mongering scumbag and his flock of chumps would be completely ignored. However, here in the real world, people on both sides of it have vested interests in making sure it doesn't go away.

    I personally hope all people in the media have the decency and intelligence to not even be there on Saturday.

    I'm pretty okay with people coming out publicly against this exercise in moronic masturbation.

    so if they report news, they're damned, and if they don't, they're damned. i think the coverage is fine, and hopefully will lead people to leave this asshole's church.

    He's a ****tard burning a book. It's completely a non-issue and absolutely not newsworthy. If I go burn some of my books, is it going to make international headlines? **** no. Why? Because it's a non-issue. It's a ****ing book.

    I've seen it discussed on Fox. I just hope they don't cover the event itself.

    I have no idea what you are talking about.
    I do not have a problem with someone saying Happy Holidays. I do have a problem with places who don't allow employees to say Merry Christmas and calling Christmas trees Holiday trees. I think a few places got the hint in the last few years that people weren't pleased.

    The media should never have focused on him to begin with.
