Blaming the religion is as bad as blaming the pastor, IMO. It's not a religion that killed innocent people, it's a few extremists who have hijacked a religion. If you're going to blame Islam for these killings, then we must blame Christianity for Fred Phelps.
So much for the "religion of love"...
Burning the Quran is free speech and should be protected as such, IMO. That doesn't mean it's smart or that it adds anything good to the world. It doesn't. In fact, I think it tears at the fabric of goodwill in the world. If that is the pastor's intent, then he succeeded... But tell me, what kind of "man of God" is a pastor who wishes to destroy the good will in the world? What kind of "Christian" is that? Not one that I would want representing my religion.

burning a book didn't lead to anyones death, people with a deep mental disturbance did. If someone goes out and kills someone because of something I say or do.. Not my fault. Period.. Anyone that doesn't understand that can gladly line up and hand over their freedoms.. I'll keep minen thanks.

almost every major religion takes division to the extreme.
A lot of people have asked how it would feel if they pissed on family photos or burned flags, bibles, and other material objects. Well, I would feel that whoever is doing this is incredibly immature and just looking for a reaction, but I would never in my life think about murdering innocent people because of something that means nothing in the long run.
People demanding for this guy's silence are opening a can of worms I really don't think they understand, do you really want to live in a world where you're afraid to or it is illegal to criticize obvious mental psychosis?
