What are everyone's thoughts on this.

Some anus is planning on burning hundreds of Koran's on September 11th.
What a stupid fucking twat.
Agreed. No doubt some poor sods will suffer because of this if it goes ahead.
As I get older my dislike of religion becomes greater...I read something recently along the lines of:
An evil man/woman will do evil things regardless.....only religion can make a normal man/woman do evil things. Not far from the truth if you ask me.
Well even I can pick up what you think of him!

Many muslims are trying to distance themselves from the stuff being carried out by extremists and they rightly accuse them of twisting the teachings in the Koran to meet their own ends.
We should be supporting them in this stance in order to isloate extremists instead of doing this kind of crap and stirring up further religious hatred and reinforcing the belief that the Koran tells extremists to kill people. It will also give the extremists an excuse to go on the attack.
Total idiot, they should make him write to each of the soldier's families that die because of the aggravation it will cause in Afghanistan. I don't understand how he's not being locked up for it, certainly in this country I think you'd get slapped with extremism laws etc, no idea what the laws are like in the US but guessing they allow people to do that kind of thing given the Whitehouse only went as far as condemning it and not suggesting he would be prosecuted.
Kudos though for the deal with that Mosque being built near ground zero, that was a win all round I reckon.
All religion is a load of tosh that needs to be binned asap.
People always talk about religious tolerance, but you should not tolerate ridiculous things in any shape or form.
This is especially true for ridiculous concepts like religion which lead to so much pain, death, and misery.
The preacher is being an arse, and the media are worse.
Rangers then, Rangers now, Rangers Forever.
Absolutely no good can come of this, Pastor Jones is another nutcase hellbent on the end times - desperate to bring about Armageddon and the return of Jebus. Should be sent to an asylum, with soft padded walls where he's a threat to nobody.
He's a tosser.
Personally I have only known 1 devout Muslim well, and he was possibly the coolest, most unassuming person I have known.
Besides, if we are going to start burning things, how about we do a quick backfill exercise and get rid of all the Spice Girls CDs?

I think the US government already 'pwned' him in the battle for what will encourage further terrorist attacks on the West and its interests. He brings a 50-strong church to the table organising a burn-a-Koran day and the US government brings invading Iraq, Guantanamo and associated state torture.
Anyway, you try being a 50-strong church putting across positive messages in life and see what page of the newspaper you get on... become some deluded, ignorant strange dude with a gorilla marketing ethic and you go world wide. Cue scenes of apparently thousands of Muslims burning flags of America... pan out and it's like 25 dudes who are more pissed that they're being told to give up their poppy trade with no sensible alternative.
In case I offend, let me point out I love everybody equally; Muslims, Muslim-Americans, Jews, Christian-Americans, Agnostics, Atheists and Liverpudlians. Well, the last part is pushing it...
There is not a lot to say that hasnt already been said. The guy is an idiot.
Have a plan and stick to it
