Gainesville, FL-The pastor of a 50 member church wants to exercise his First Amendment right and publicly burn a copy of the Muslim Holy Book. This silly stunt has garnered world-wide publicity and the much sought after rebuke of Barack Obama. I strongly suspect contributions to this insignificant church are skyrocketing as a result.
Muslims already are prosecuting a despicable holy war against America and I fail to see how this book-burning can possibly make things worse. The same violent and ignorant Muslim zealots will continue to use every murderous tool they have against Americans at every opportunity.
This is a classic case of that child’s saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.” The pastor need not have a real copy of the Koran, just a paste-up look-alike for news cameras in order to inflame crazy Muslims.
I guess nobody is smart enough to defuse this public relations bomb. The media could simply choose not cover the burning or the threats to do so. I guess that was far too simple.
Burning a book is not violence nor is it criminal. Anyone committing violence against any American exercising his absolute Constitutional right is a criminal.
Any American public official especially Barack Obama that would even respond to that pastor’s announcement to burn the Koran is deliberately throwing gasoline on to the fire. Obama has raised the importance of a small-time Christian preacher to limitless new heights and wealth.
