They're quite fond of burning our Countries flags and we don't care (why should we?) yet they actually murder people when their holy book is burned? This won't be very politically correct but what a bunch of god damn savages. I'm sick of them and sick of our goverments sending our people to these third world ultra violent countries where there is no respect for life to be killed.


I don't know anything that gives me greater pleasure, or profit either, than talking or listening to philosophy. But when it comes to ordinary conversation, such as the stuff you talk about financiers and the money market, well, I find it pretty tiresome personally, and I feel sorry that my friends should think they're being very busy when they're really doing absolutely nothing. Of course, I know your idea of me: you think I'm just a poor unfortunate, and I shouldn't wonder if your right. But then I dont THINK that you're unfortunate - I know you are.

With all due respect, but you aren't the one to judge who deserves or doesn't deserve to live.

That's the sort of thinking that leads to senseless murder. You judge them, yet you jump on the same wagon.

What the frigg are you talking about? I don't know you so I can't judge you, although what I do find is that people who are deeply into all this ''love and light'' business like yourself are usually well out of touch with reality and talk utter claptrap. You can live in your bubble of rainbows and unicorns all you like but take yourself over to Afghanistan with your messages of 'love and light' and walk down one of their roads, see how far you get.

Once again, the only response from the religion of peace is to murder people that are not involved.

I'd love for the US to get out of the Mideast.

Then they can practice their version of peace on each other.

So you feel as if you have the right to deal death and judgment on others?

Of course you do..... I forgot who I was talking to here..

Why are they buring holy books? Is it out of ignorance, malice or stupidity?

Probably all of those but it certainly shouldn't warrant the death penalty for the burning of ink and paper, I know what the book means to people but if Islam is meant to be a religion of peace why are people being murdered because of it?

I'd burn them Too And I would burn every other religious book like the Bible and every other book dedecated to a false god or prophet.
Religion and the followers of religious writings have been the cause of countless wars and billions of deaths since the day that they were written.
The sooner we destroy such books, the sooner we would all get along and the wars will stop.

BURN ALL RELIGIOUS BOOKS.
BURN, BURN, BURN.

As usual only half the story is being told here. The korans were used in prisons and jails and they were burned because the prisoners wrere leaving each other messages in them encouraging each other with "kill the infadel" type extremist messages. Look it up its out there. It not some random act of hate like the media portrays.

Now stop that right now!
People here on ATS are hating America and the troops! If you start interjecting the truth here, people will look like idio-. . . . . never mind.

WTF are you on about???????????????????????
Your the coward, Only a coward hide's behind a book. Only a coward kills for a book , only a coward blindly follows the teaching of a Biblical/ religious book.
You might find peace in the murder of innocence for a book, but i won't.



David knows this. Listen.


NO i wont listen to your false prophet, nore will I believe in their false teachings.
Wozameathed knows this, Listen

I do not know the Muslim religion that much and cannot answer your questions, but you can easily say if the Christian religion is about tolerance, charity and morality then how come .... X,Y,Z. I think the focus shouldn't be on why certain Muslims act a certain way or justify certain actions but rather we should ask why our soldiers are antagonizing a population known for violent reactions especially when it comes to their religion.

Because of conditioning (indoctrination), culture and history. It might not be holy to you but it is to someone else. If you are an opposing force occupying a country and your job relies on discipline I would assume that doing something that could incite riots or put yourself or your soldiers in danger would be a big no no.

This has nothing to do with the validity of religion, or whether one religion is crazy or not, it has to do with common freaking sense.

I'd burn them too, except i'd be smart and burn them in the winter when it's cold that way i'd have some heat to stay warm with.

They'd make good toilet paper too. I'd rather wipe my ass with a Quran than use those smooth stones to wipe off with that they use in Afghanistan. I'd rather not give myself hemorroids shoving rocks up my behind.


spoken like a true christian from the "civilized" west.

Nothing else to add.

Well i agree, but its still just a FREAKING book.
And again it shows just how ignorant religious freaks are for getting so worked up over a freaking FICTICIOUS book.
I wonder how many peoples house's have burnt down over the hundreds of years with a Ficticious religious book in them. SHOULD they be killed because of it????????
So i dont think burning another one is such a big deal.

Its got everything to do with the validity of religion.
All religions and their followers that kill for a false prophet/ god are crazy, so where is their FREAKING common sense in that.

Oh such dumb kids we let do things. They burned themselves and the US so bad. Let the damm prisoners write stuff on the Koran, idiots. Stupid moves creating international repercussions by children with guns. The Muslims should not be so touchy about the US having some foolish soldiers.

When will the American soldiers start using their god damn brains?

Imagine how different it would have been had they given those books to a local mosque or village or something?

But no ...

Agreed. It's actually amazing in 2012 we can say things don't exist if we can't find it with science. Religion is the only thing people still hold onto because they simply believe its real, still trying to find the burial place of jesus. Living their lives based on a book written by people who told stories instead of sat around a TV giggling to laugh tracks and bad jokes.

I mean it cant be real if everyone that believes in it believes in ONLY their version of the story, right? Sounds like a bunch of LIARS.
