What have we as Americans become?

What dark road are we going down as Americans? News.yahoo.com reports, "A Christian minister vowed Tuesday to go ahead with plans to burn copies of the Quran to protest the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks despite warnings from the White House and the top U.S. general in Afghanistan that doing so would endanger American troops overseas."

Can someone please get a handle on these Americans supposedly exercizing their First Amendment rights? Maybe there needs to be an exorcism to get rid of the demons in these people.

Regardless how you feel about Islam, why would you endanger American troops overseas who have fought for your right to say what you want? Now that is extremism.

Hopefully cooler and smarter heads will prevail and these people will come to their senses. SMH

How hypocritical, a "black liberation theologist" lecturing on extremism. Hate and racism are your mantra, in my opinion,

It's a matter of a total lack of common decency, as with the sad situation going on at Ground Zero, not a First Amendment issue.

Will Christians riot if the mosque is built?

Will Muslims riot if a Koran is Burned?

Y'know -- the more people that stir the fire of contention, the bigger the fire is going to get. What I am wondering is if that Rev in Florida realizes he's prolly gonna get capped. (I hope my use of the Queen's English doesn't throw anyone off).

I keep thinking about this. I was not upset about the "Mosque" (which isn't a Mosque, it is a Community Center: It's fun to stay at the YMMA!) It's just that Muslim's have to pray at their designated times, there is also a prayer room.

I am upset about the Koran burning. It sounds as though I am pretty tolerant of it all. Go figure. And to think I'm a Christian. Where have I gone wrong....

You didnt read the bible...that's where...

I find it funny that you stumble upon the truth...get up...dust yourself off...and keep on walking...

" What I am wondering is if that Rev in Florida realizes he's prolly gonna get capped"

Who would do such a thing?...a muslim?...from the "religion of peace"?

Once again....did Christians riot and issue death threats when the US govt burned Bibles?

No...they did not...

You mean when the church sent over bibles unsolicited to Afghanistan, translated into regional languages, and potentially endangered our work there?

They were burned not because they were Bibles per se, but because they were then in essence trash (of which all is burned).

From your article:
_______________
The unsolicited Bibles sent by a church in the United States were confiscated about a year ago at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan because military rules forbid troops of any religion from proselytizing while deployed there, Lt. Col. Mark Wright said.

Such religious outreach can endanger American troops and civilians in the devoutly Muslim nation, Wright said.
"The decision was made that it was a 'force protection' measure to throw them away, because, if they did get out, it could be perceived by Afghans that the U.S. government or the U.S. military was trying to convert Muslims," Wright told CNN on Tuesday.

Troops at posts in war zones are required to burn their trash, Wright said.

The Bibles were written in the languages Pashto and Dari.

Actually, I study it. Call me Mara. You could quite possibly be right about me. I am one of the lost - that's why I need Jesus.

I find it funny that you stumble upon the truth...get up...dust yourself off...and keep on walking...

You don't stumble/falter/question/wonder? So the Truth of God is that a Mosque can't be built and Korans can be burned? Or is the Truth of God compete forgiveness for the asking and kindness, empathy and understanding in the face of ignorance?

" What I am wondering is if that Rev in Florida realizes he's prolly gonna get capped"

Who would do such a thing?...a Muslim?...from the "religion of peace"?

A crazy zealot of some kind... chances are, I would guess, Muslim.

Once again....did Christians riot and issue death threats when the US govt burned Bibles?

No...they did not...

Which country are we talking about? Plenty of Christians issue death threats - Plenty of Christians arm themselves believing wholeheartedly that they are doing in the name of God.

We bomb abortion clinics in the name of the Lord. We protest funerals of soldiers saying that they will burn in hell because this country supports homosexuality (though we won't allow Gays to marry).

As opposed to wiping the dust off of our sandals and "moving on."

There's your sign...

Muslim's have to pray at their designated times, THEY HAVE 12 OTHER MOSQUE'S/COMMUNITY CENTERS IN THAT SAME AREA, they have plenty of places to pray.See it for what it really is ,and your right you THINK your a christian.

"DTOM" {1776} " We The People" {1791}

According to the Bible - there is only one requirement to being a Christian. The rest is me trying to do my best to live my life following the greatest example who lived. Jesus didn't go around protesting Hellenistic Greek Temples. He protested his own temple. Selah.

I do know, however, that I cannot judge anyone. Apparently, you are close enough to God to know his heart to judge me. So be it. I'm not there yet. I don't know if ever I will be.

By the way, the Bible says that we are to pray without ceasing. That's our designated time.
The Bible also teaches us what to pray, how to pray it - and when it is appropriate.

As far as the 12 other Mosques and community centers - well - maybe as a man of God (or woman) we should start working at getting rid of all of our stinking denominations.

Makes me wonder what JC would think and do about the whole ball of wax?

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Burning the Koran and building the Mosque at 911 is a right, doesn't mean its smart to do either, but its a right.. You are a hipocrite based on your comments about the Mosque. Hopefully you will get some sense about yourself before you comment on such issues...
And the only dark road we are going down is the road of theProgressive /Liberal/Socialist thinking .. road TO SOCIALISM..

All decent, sane people agree-socialism is a mental disorder.

Can someone (ecspecially on CNN) please just interview a real Bible believing preacher and not some inter-faith "Christian" and then interview a real muslim. If each are telling the truth...each will admit that we do not worship the same God. God (Jehovah) of the Bible is not (Allah) of the Koran.

The Bible and Christianity starts and ends with this truth. JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD. Jesus himself said, "Nobody comes to the Father, except through me."

The Koran and Islam denies Christ is the son of God and they claim he was just another prophet and a "good man."

First of all...Jesus himself said He is the Son of God...obviously, the muslims don't believe that...which would mean Jesus was lying...which would not make him a good man or a good prophet.

Christianity and Islam is as opposite as anything can be. These two faiths with such critical differences cannot be the same...we cannot be brothers and sisters...as one new age "christian" preacher claimed on CNN today.

What have Americans become? The answer is we have become SPINELESS! We are to afraid to speak the truth in fear of offending others and just trying to get along. Read the book of Kings in the Bible and see what God thought of the Jewish kings who burned down all false god statues and idols...he called them good kings.

There can only be One God and One Truth....we both can't be right ...and to claim we are worshipping the same God is an outright lie. The Bible predicts in the end days there will be a one world (false) religion. Ten years ago it was hard to imagine...but, as more and more people pursue inter-faith...I can see it will happen.

In the course of world history...muslim ruled nations have been oppressed third world countries...and apparently, to be politically correct...we americans are willing to become the same.

The muslims are using our own freedom of religion laws to take over. The puritans who came here orginally for religious freedom (where the idea got started) were christians....not muslims.

Finally, why is Obama and the leftist government getting involved in this? I thought liberals believed so much in seperation of church and state. Which by the way is not in any legal U.S. Document. Seperation of church and state was referred to by Thomas Jefferson in a personal letter to the Danberry Baptists...in which he was expressing to them their right to worship the God of the Bible freely.

Patrick Henry once said, "It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason, peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.” [May 1765 Speech to the House of Burgesses]

....our freedom of religion laws to take over?

Looking at a recent Pew study on religious affiliation in the United States, Christians represent 78% of our adult population, with unaffiliated second at 16%, Judaism at 1.7%. Other religions combined make up 4.7%. Combined. Judaism 1.7, Buddhism .7%, Muslim .6%, Hindu .4% NEW AGE .4%. So the combined total of all other religions in the US is about 2.5 times that of the Mormon Church. And less than 25% of the unaffiliated. And 1/20 of the Christian population. Even looking at other estimates, at most they are around 1-1.5% of the US adult population.

http://religions.pewforum.org/reports

Um, so if you are going to use a blanket statement re: muslim-ruled nations being oppressed third world countries, you need to say the same thing about every Christian country as well, including our own. While many Christian countries were mucking about in the Dark Ages burning each other at the stake, many Muslim countries were in an age of enlightenment, advancing science, medicine, art, and much culture. In our own country, the Christian pulpit has been used as a power and political tool to oppress many over the years.

So, do you have an axe to grind about any religion besides Christianity, then? Judaism? Islam has many common roots to Christianity, while buddhism, hinduism, and many other world religions don't share those beginnings, even if many main messages seem to have alignment.

It looks like the pastor, in the face of adversity, went "belly up" with the book burning deal.

Hopefully the iman will also come to his senses.

Finally, why is Obama and the leftist government getting involved in this? I thought liberals believed so much in seperation of church and state.

Bibles have been burnt during this administration. Flags have been burnt as well. Nothing was said. Bible, Torah, Koran, any other religious book, why would the destruction of some not merit any reaction at all, but the destrution of others gets the gov't involved right up to the oval office? No need to answer - it's a rhetorical question.

"Feeling a little prickly heat in your bulbus tipping region?"

And Obama wonders why the majority of Americans think he is a
closet Muslim?
