Pastor Terry Jones is dumb. His call to burn Qurans on 9/11 is just plain dumb. The Quran is no worse than the Bible that Pastor Jones loves. The Bible also has many horrible things in it including commands for God's "chosen people" to commit genocide (Deuteronomy 7:2).
The Muslims who threaten those who burn Qurans are dumber. What difference does it make if a holy book is burned? Does it destroy the words of the book? Muslims believe that the words of the Quran are from God (same as Christians believe about the Bible). The words are spiritual. Is a fire going to destroy something spiritual? The Muslims are too sensitive about their religion threatening violence to anyone who dares to draw a picture of Muhammad or speak evil of Islam. Come on, followers of Muhammad, don't be so insecure.
The dumbest of all is the news media who gives a nutjob like Pastor Jones the spotlight. If the media had just ignored Mr. Jones and his tiny congregation, their dumb actions would have gone largely unnoticed. But the newsmedia is all about ratings and any kind of sideshow is good for ratings. Maybe the American people are the dumbest of all because we enjoy watching such sideshows. Unfortunately any crackpot that wants to get his 15 minutes of fame will now threaten to burn a Quran.
Come on newsmedia, there has got to be more important things to report than what a kook in Florida wants to do some supposed holy book.
