    Here we go. We should have seen this coming.

    Justice Stephen Breyer: Is Burning Koran 'Shouting Fire In A Crowded Theater?' - George Stephanopoulos' Bottom Line

    Burning the flag? Free speech.
    Burning the Koran? National security concern.

    I'll kill you for saying that. You no longer have free speech. What nonsense Breyer displayed.

    I don't think this pathetic display of cow toeing and appeasement to muslims can get any more ridiculous. What's next? Thanking them from now on for sawing someone's head off? This has reached the point of absurdity.

    The "islamophobe card" is the new "race card." Once the islamophobe card is played, you have to sit down, shut up, and let a muslim cut your head off.

    Rarely are ad hominem attacks reasonable or appropriate. In this case Annie, you deserve to be branded stupid. Not because you have the audacity to characterize a Supreme Court Justice, but because all of your posts are of the same genre - thoughtless partisan bullshit.

    Is burning the koran "shouting fire in a crowded theatre"

    No!......It's just plain stupid. It will accomplish absolutely nothing. The extremist muslims aren't going to change their twisted views. It's not going to change a damn thing. Why waste the matches?...It's stupid!

    I mean seriously, do muslims burning american flags make americans say, "oh look, they burnt the flag, I must be wrong for being an american so, I now hate america"?

    I fully support the pastors right to burn them, but it's stupid!

    I'll probably regret saying this Chef, but you're not wearing the shoes of a religious zealot (I know, suggesting you might be sane is out of character, hence my likely regret).
    Burning the America flag with immunity is what our flag stands for. The freedom to express oneself no matter how obscene the expression maybe to others.
    Burning the Koran - a symbol like our flag - will inflame the zealots of Islam, not all of them, but enough a reasonable person would believe, to cause a violent reaction resulting in the death of inncents.
    Americans are better than that. At least most of us, there are American zealots as evidenced by McVeigh, Rudolf or Roeder.

    So Chef, now dem bums have a chance to hurt my Giants. If I apologize for Joe Morgan's HR will that get us through this series?

    Of course it is. But think about how some kook in FL became the most feared and "dangerous" person in the world. And he hadn't even done anything yet. Its beyond absurdity.

    People around the world go fucking bonkers burning flags and threatening our troops yet Rev Cuckoo is the "real" criminal. We are living in bizarro world folks. Its like giving in to 2 year olds having a temper tantrum.It just makes it worse.
    (Not to mention these two year olds like to blow shit up.)

    I guess the question which occurs is why are our troops all over the world? And why, if we are a nation of peace and freedom, do people "go fucking bonkers burning (our) flags".
