MIAMI — A church planning to burn copies of the Quran on Sept. 11 is 'definitely praying' about the controversial demonstration, its pastor said after Gen. David Petraeus warned it would put in danger the lives of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.
"We are taking the general's words very serious. We are continuing to pray about the action on September 11th," he said.
But he said "we have firmly made up our mind" to go ahead with burning the Muslim holy book.

I think they'll burn it. When they meet God after death they'd probably realize it was not a nice thing to do. They're inciting people for no good reason.
They still have a right to be idiots though.

This is America. They are free to burn the Qu'ran if they want. Satanists are free to burn the bible if they want. Jews are free to speak out against whatever they want. So are Buddhists. So are Muslims.
Welcome to freedom.
Considering how Islamic countries treat Christians, the bible, rosaries, etc ... they have no right to be upset by this.
It's MILD compared to what they do.
If They don't like it, they can call up their brethren here and have them burn a bible or two.
Watch the response by Americans ... it won't be the same as the ticked off Islamic countries.

Kind of the same way Muslims are free to serve in the US military? They do you know.
I wonder how proud they must be to be overseas, fighting the good fight to protect this right.
Do you believe this one church is a nation unto itself?
They do worse, right? Interesting moral ideology at work there.
Who is they?
Are you labeling me as an enemy of the state?
But apparently you hope it will be close.
