    You completely misunderstood my statement. I write that it is a SHAME that politicians try to restrict our civil liberties because of the fear generated by religious lunatics thousands of miles away. I am not excusing the politician's behavior. I wish they would grow a pair and tell the lunatics to stick it where the sun don't shine.

    Terry Jones compares himself to Martin Luther King, and debates an Imam and a real Christian Reverend on Fox:

    FFS, the Iman is even dumber than Pastor Jones, and that is saying something.

    Why are you giving Pastor Jones any additional air time? Ignore him and he fades away.

    I didn't realise the Imam had control over Fox's airtime :D

    There's a reverend there too, btw. Is he also dumber than the pastor?

    The entire discussion is stupid, but he is probably the most cerebral member of that panel.

    don't encourage them.
    from what I understand, they already do that quite a bit more than they like to let on.

    He is, but so are the people that will come out of the mosques on Friday protesting in the street that all of America (and the west) are doing this en masse.

    Protesting peacefully is fine imo. Over-reacting to the provocation with violence or disorder is playing into his hands, and I would accept that to be a stupid way to respond.

    On a side note, this is one of those threads when you see it at the top of the page, you immediately shake your head and think to yourself "not again."

    Mass protests, even peaceful ones, over the actions of an individual who is not linked to any goverment\important organisation is a laughable overreaction.

    Re: Burn a Koran day

    Protest is a right of the weak. The powerful look after their interests in other ways. So long as people protest in a legitimate manner, I'm not too concerned about whether the actions they are complaining about are worth spending time and effort over.

    Personally I know this guy is a scumbag, but I'm not gonna go out of my way to protest his actions. He can do what he wants, but I sure hope he gets his just rewards for trying to rile up people. I've drawn the parallels between this guy and the Phelps people before, and I think it rings true. They are nasty pieces of work who go out of their way to spite others, and I'd guess they get a pleasure out of it. Hopefully people will see that, and won't react how these people want them to react.
