I'm not burning the Qu'ran

Okay, I've been on holiday so forgive me if I'm a bit behind the times but I've only just heard about this plan by a group of Christians in Florida to burn the Qu'ran on September 11th. They claim to be doing it on behalf of Christians: I'd like to make it clear that they're not doing it on my behalf.

Burning books is indefensible - unless you're really really really cold and there's nothing else.

Banksy has a wonderful quote on his Facebook page. It's from Richard Rohr speaking at Greenbelt and it goes like this: 'The best criticism of the bad is the practice of the better.'

Amen to that.

Amen! My one active prejudice is toward prejudiced people. As such I cannot accept this hate-mongering Florida "pastor" as a true follower of Christ Jesus.

Amen to that! This is freedom of religion gone awry! Just because the Muslims aren't showing much sensitivity to the locale they've chosen for their place of worship does not mean any Christian should lower themselves to even below that lack of sensitivity.

Do you know this "pastor" has a "congregation" of 50? He certainly doesn't speak for the majority of Christians in this country either. This is on the same level as dictators and despots who burned Bibles in their countries.
