Burn, Baby, Burn--Who's Next?

Pastor Terry Jones of Gainesville, Florida plans to publicly burn the Koran on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. Even Fox News thinks that's a bad idea.

As the Reverend John Rankin writes:

[Jones] admitted to the New York Times in an August 26 article that he has no knowledge of the Koran: “I have no experience with it whatsoever. I only know what the Bible says.” As well, in my direct contacts with his church, I have learned that he claims God told him “to do this burning.”

Really? How well does he know the Bible? Is it biblical to be deliberately ignorant concerning a matter about which you write a book? Is he claiming to be a prophet, and if so, what will the results show?

This man will burn the sacred book of the third branch of the Abrahamic religion and upload it for all to see. The word of the prophet Muhammad, just as the Bible is the word of the prophet Jesus. Abraham was the father of Isaac and Ishmael. Moses is there. Mary is there.

All these shouters are so proud of their ignorance and proud to provoke civil disorder, unrest and murder with the click of a mouse.

Where were they when Timothy McVeigh blew up the Oklahoma City Federal Building, killing 168 people? Oh, I forgot. They CELEBRATED his bombing on April 19, the anniversary of this American terrorist.

If you are sincerely interested in understanding Americans who practice Islam, check out this video . It's the Congressional Muslim Staff panel discussion on the Image of Muslims in America.

By the way, isn't Terry Jones an original member of Monty Python?

He's the judge here, too. Check out Cardinal Richilieu.
