These lunatics will have hands as bloody as the Taliban if/when they perform this moronic act.
All over burning a book, one little book, now that is idiotic and will show who is a hater. Anyone dumb enough to get violent over the burning of a book is the true hater.

I am sure you understand they feel about their book like you feel about your book. It is not just a book. Its holy to them like your bible is to you.

Violence has many forms. It can be physical and psychological. Getting violent is never right in any form. Causing people harm and hurt on purpose is never right.

Christians burning another religions sacred books is pure bigotry and I cannot even fathom how Christians can think its a good thing to do.... Would Jesus go to a book burning? I doubt it....

Love your neighbor.
Do unto others as you would have them do onto you.
The first without sin cast the first stone.

I am not a Christian but these verses come to mind when i think of Jesus and some of the things he said.

I've got to write a play with you. Jazzymom, or was it Orion's daughter? There is a difference between scolding your own children and scolding a stranger;s children. I think now that I am a stranger's child too. Is that something we have become ashamed to remark about because we would be warm by property LESS.

lool plenty more where they came from

i wonder what people do with the bible or qu'ran when it gets to old to be of any use.. what if you left it on the floor and your big dog took a dump on it.?? we had this german shephard and he took a dump on a 2000$ persian rug, and i'm not talking solid turds it was the gooey stuff all over it.!! well i threw that stinky rug in the truck and immediately took it to the local dump. dang i didn't even spank the dog.

moral, don't buy expensive rugs if you have a dog and don't leave your bible , qu'ran on the floor

You have a common moral with many religious people. BUT, this stunt from Guantanamo Bay fails to realize that muslims worshipping their God in America are nothing for concepts and actions compared to Muslims as Insurgents and Al-qaeda.

To me this act is as bad as the forcible internment of Japanese Americans into camps during the second world war.
