    I agree.

    Burning Korans is stupid, hateful and un-Christian.

    Unfortunately, according to the left NO ONE should try speak out against them because they have a constitutional right to freedom of expression.


    Too bad, because I think we could have done some good here. :eusa_silenced:

    I think, no....I know you're stretching to make some cheap political points here. Too bad because you're missing the point.

    Speaking for myself, an avowed Lefty, I can tell you that you should speak out against the idiot wishing to burn Korans. Political speech should be heard from everyone.

    Again, speaking as an avowed Lefty, no one should try to get an injunction prohibiting this idiot from burning Korans.

    See the difference? Speak out against it, fine. Use the power of the state to stop it? Unconstitutional.

    Wrong, the people who oppose the Ground Zero Mosque never asked the government for anything.

    They have only used the power of public pressure...which the left has attacked over and over and over SPECIFICALLY as denying them their rights.

    I'll link to it if you'd like to read it for yourself.

    You can't have it both ways.

    The Muslim radicals who politicize their cause will always find something to stir the pot over. If it's not the book burning, then it's the anti-mosque protest in New York, or it's the fact that the United States doesn't officially observe Ramadan, or it's the fact that Hollywood portrays Muslims as terrorists in the movie "Green Zone." It's gonna be something!

    I'm surprised that General Petraeus commented on it one way or the other. The smart thing to do would have been to just ignore the whole issue because it really doesn't have any bearing on military operations. The Muslim militants will attack US troops because they are determined to do so. They don't need some wacko in Florida to inspire them. They will find some reason, any reason, to justify their attacks. Petraeus should be smart enough to know that.

    I qualified everything I said in terms like 'Speaking for myself, an avowed Lefty' and 'Again, speaking as an avowed Lefty'.

    Don't tell me I'm wrong.

    That is an outright lie. Either that or you're ignorant of the facts. Opponents of the mosque DID try to get the government to declare the mosque site a historic landmark as a weasel attempt to block it.

    And yet when we speak out against the 'community center' near GZ, we get called 'bigots'. One wonders.... if this were Muslims, burning bibles.... would we get a high five to speak out against it from the left? I think not. I think the majority of the left would call us 'racists' and 'bigots'.
