    Obama: Quran-burning a 'bonanza for al-Qaida' - Politics - White House - msnbc.com

    "If he's listening, I hope he understands that what he's proposing to do is completely contrary to our values as Americans," Obama said. "That this country has been built on the notion of freedom and religious tolerance."

    The president also said Jones' plan, if carried out, could serve as an incentive for terrorist-minded individuals "to blow themselves up" to kill others.

    "And as a very practical matter, as commander in chief of the Armed Forces of the United States, I just want him to understand that this stunt that he is talking about pulling could greatly endanger our young men and women in uniform," the president said.


    But does he have the "Right" to do it?... Obama was QUICK to Support the Islamists and the Proposed Mosque @ Ground Zero...

    Interesting how he Selective in his Support of certain Constitutional Rights for certain People.

    :)

    peace...

    You are correct, that this idiotic Jones has a RIGHT to do this. I do not believe anything that Obama said infringed on that right.

    The same Words for the Mosque would have been Nice...

    Consistency...

    But then again, Christians aren't going to go running out in the Streets Killing People when they are Offended, so...

    :)

    So if Obama comes out against a KKK rally in the US, you will be writing the same post?

    He would be obliged to use the same words he used for the Mosque?

    The KKK whether or not you agree with them has the same rights as any group to hold a rally. And if you are going to defend constitutional rights for one group, you must defend them for all groups.

    But Obama didn't defend or attack their constitutional rights. He just used his moral judgment and his intelligence to conclude that burning the Korans would be a bad decision. Is he allowed to make that judgment call?

    His statement implies that they have the constitutional right to burn holy books. The issue with that action is whether or not they should do it. He goes one step further than with the community center case.
