Christian idiots plan to provoke trouble by burning copies of the Koran. Talk about stirring up a hornet's nest of trouble for no reason. Of course it is in Florduh.

A FLORIDA church was yesterday promoting an event where it will burn copies of the Koran to mark the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the U.S.
In the announcement on its Facebook page, The Dove World Outreach Center of Gainesville, Florida, asked other religious groups to join in standing "against the evil of Islam. Islam is of the devil!"

The Facebook event has received more than 1,500 "Like" recommendations by users, but had also been attacked with a number of threatening messages posted on the page and corresponding anti-Islam rants.

The church's pastor, Terry Jones - who has written a book titled "Islam is of The Devil" and sells T-shirts bearing the same message - defended the controversial event.

"Islam and Sharia law was responsible for 9/11," Jones told Agence France-Presse.

It's the prophet Mohammed's birthday, and Banda Aceh is celebrating at the Grand Mosque.

"We will burn Korans because we think it's time for Christians, for churches, for politicians to stand up and say no; Islam and Sharia law is not welcome in the U.S.

"We've got many death threats from jihad groups, but we cannot react by fear and we cannot compromise our beliefs. Somebody must stand up."

Just throw the bible and all the other religious brainwashing manuals in as well ... for that matter if you believe this is a good idea, throw yourself in as well. This demonstrates a level of ignorance and hatred only possible through religion.

It's just disappointing, as an ex Christian to hear about things like this, I wonder if this is what Jesus would do ;-)

I don't practice any form of religion personally, but why deliberately go and provoke another religion is just sheer stupidity. Why cause trouble for no reason. If we see any form of reprisals against this group, I can only say sucked in, you reap what you sow. Just hope no innocents get hurt.
