    Pastor Terry Jones is determined to burn copies of the Koran (so-called Muslim holy book) on September 11 in an expression of hatred towards Muslim extremists. He's from the Dove Outreach Church in Gainesville, Fla. and he's not doing more harm than good to the Christian sector. Who would want to burn anyone's holy book, even to avenge extremists? I the YUKON man would, I support the Pastor.

    Radical opponents of the Western world and Christian beliefs took over the minds of those who attacked America on September 11, 2001. It was an unthinkable act geared to change our world, which it has on numerous security measures.

    Support Pastor Terry. Send him your thanks.

    I do not support what he is doing but I support his right to do it.

    I feel sorry for his congregation of hateful fearful fools.

    I agree completely. Not sure I would do it myself, but I would fight for everyone's right to do so if they choose.

    Those who express hatred toward those who would destroy our society are not, repeat NOT, hateful fools.

    While I've always supported his right to do it, I didn't support him actually doing it at first.

    But the discussions that have transpired here over the last couple of days have changed my mind and now I absolutely want him to go through with it.

    If one thing is now more clear than ever, it's that muslims MUST learn to deal with being offended and having their religion insulted if they are ever going to peacefully co-exist with the rest of the world.

    Even though Pastor Jone's motives are straight out of the shitter, it's now clear that what he is doing needs to happen.

    If you are referring to the Koran burners. You are incorrect.
    They are obviously hateful to be bruning a holy book of another religious order.
    And they are fools if they think it will do one bit of improvement in the situation or towards resolving their hatred.

    Pastor Terry is doing what most of us want to do but we haven't the intestinal fortitude to do it. He is a brave man, expressing his freedom to offend who he wants to when he wants to.

    God Bless Pastor Terry !
