My prayers go out for you. Yes, free speech is important and I agree that they should be allowed to say these things as long as I can speak my part and respond to them. It is funny that some professed atheists took me to task for speaking my piece when I first posted this. I was told I was not polite enough to those who pervert the word. I was not trying to be polite on purpose, I wanted to say that these people don't represent most Christians and are teaching things that are contrary to the bible. Not semantics and not minor points, misleading people and causing them harm by their lies.
I like living in a country where you (a Christian) can help by being on the ERT. Burning anyone's holy book is deeply offensive and I woul never support it, not even "The Satanic Bible". It does not make the thoughts go away, it changes nothing except to upset others. Burning the Koran is incredibly offensive to Muslims who are not radical and want to live decent lives, just like you and I.
Burning the Koran is incredibly offensive to Muslims who are not radical
because this is a speculative statement based on perception.

Jokes aside I fully understand why you would be mad, there is a lot of people out there professing to be Christian and deliberately sowing seeds of deception and discord just to distract and discredit, not just in the realm of Christianity you understand, this is what Ive come to see. And we need to be discerning this and standing against it Christians and non-Christians alike.
The trouble is two fold, one; Atheists are always gagging for a reason to demonize religion (not limited to but mainly being the Christian religion), so they are unlikely to stop painting every christian with the same tar, and two; Christians are gagging to get off this sinful planet and back to their real home in heaven with god, thus they easily fall prey to marketting (spawn of satan)......
Also I think we are all just tired, Christian, atheist, agnostic alike. We are tired and sick and we know that the way the world is, is wrong and we dont know what to do about it. So we jump on the first bandwagon that comes along whether its a "going on up to the spirit in the sky" kindve thing or a "all religion must die!" kindve thing, and we go round and round year after year chasing our tails and yapping at eachother while TPTB throw the sticks and laugh at us......
I dont know what tommorow will bring, Jesus? Maybe, stranger things have happened I guess, but whatever happens I hope that the tyranny of the evil seed of oppressors will end, by Gods hand or our own I dont care but somethings gotta give it cant go on this way....
