In another in a reported series of whacked-out publicity stunts, some un-Christian "minister" is planning a Koran barbecue this weekend. Every man, woman, and child in America should deplore this fool.
Just as I deplore the dogged insistence of the Cordoba House provocateurs to put their mosque/base of operations for Jihad within sight of the place victim's remains are still being recovered, I deplore and condemn a so-called Christian provoking anybody by burning something...anything...they revere.
In a simple WWJD test, this is impossible to countenance. It is approaching the obscene...and certainly profanes the ideals of Christ.
It is ALSO cravenly selfish, as it WILL inflame Muslims world-wide. If history is any teacher, lives will be lost. At least one American military leader has asked that it not be done, citing the positive danger it will bring his troops.
Regardless of their religious beliefs...or complete lack of them...Americans DO NOT BURN BOOKS. Especially the sacred texts of ANY religion.
