Qur'an burning free speech in America?

I don't think what that idiot did was practicing his right to free speech. That is the same thing as yelling fire in a movie theater. What he did is a form of terrorism in it's self. He has personally killed people by doing what he did. It's not like he wasn't warned what would happen.
As far as the Muslims murdering people. Any reason to murder non believers in the name of their god is good enough for them. They should be held accountable. But The real murders are the nut jobs that used the technology and the video to incite the people that can't even read nor have internet access these Iran sponsored terrorists. They are just getting other nut jobs to do their dirty work. They need to be sought out and brought to justice. I'd love to see all three of them in the same cell.

There's already a SCOTUS ruling from 1942 that sets a precedent for this. There's no need for a conspiracy for any new law or policy.
All that has to be done is for a court case to happen.

America, when does a message of hate, ignorance and intolerance become freedom of speech?
It is time that the good people of your nation stood up and said enough is enough. Freedom of speech is nothing but a veil that cowards hide behind to commit terrible acts and get away with it. You gotta have some sort of boundaries.

Yes, the pastor was exercising freedom of speech, but he was an absolute idiot for being so insensitive and deliberately inflaming tensions. He did what he did with the intention of getting an audience and provoking a reaction, and in my opinion as a Christian myself that's morally reprehensible. Of course, the extremists who murdered innocents should be punished to the full extent of the law.
