    Well, what do you think of this? Curious of your thoughts.

    YouTube user, Thunderfoot, an atheist, burns 40,000 (uploaded) Qurans for what he says is free speech.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeAr01hzG30]YouTube - 40 000 Qur'an copies Burn for Free Speech![/ame]

    Is it justified for free speech?
    Is it just adding fuel to the flames?
    Disrespectful?
    Dangerous?


    Most Christians I know wouldn't burn a Quran, just because it would be inflammatory instead of trying to show the love of Christ. However, some Christians would, for free speech like that pastor did. What are you thoughts? And if you're a Christian, what are your thoughts?

    It will be interesting to see if he is insulted and criticized in the same way that "preacher" was. I would just like to have more discussions about why islam is allowed to be a "governing system".

    My feelings about it are about even with seeing a muslim burning 40000 bibles to show his disgust at infidels. Shrug. They are just books, written by man, for man.

    Now ask me what I think about women whooping, dancing and laughing at the scenes on tv of the WTC falling...or vid cameras taken of muslims dragging our dead soldiers thru the streets.

    I seen at least one possible online "death threat" to him on his channel comments. Could just be words, but even so. I'm going to guess he's getting several similar messages.

    Yeah, most Christians I know, even if we saw someone burning a Bible, we'd probably just feel sad for that person and pray for them. If a Christian gave a death threat because of it, or worse - murdered someone over it, well it would be wrong and they wouldn't be listening to Jesus then to love our enemies. It's not on our heads of someone else burns God's Word. It's so sad and horrible that some in Islam will kill over someone burning their Quran.

    40K purchased Qurans, wow that just made the publisher happy!

    How many US flags do Muslims burn on a daily basis? Islam is a demonic cult. It is much different than the other major religions - Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism (Judaism has what 18-20 mil in a world og 6.6 billion I don't think you can call that a major religion) and it should to be treated as such.

    We don't treat all drinks are the same. Alcohol makes you drunk, Red Bull gives you wings or jolts of energy, V8 is good for your health and drinks with cyanide in it kills ya (Islam is like drinks with cyanide)!

    All organized religions suck big hairy ones, Marie. No offense. Which is why I follow my own path, take a smidge of this, a smidge of that, combine it and voila. God fearing? HAYELL no. I dont fear God. Do I believe in Him? You betcha. I dont need some book or "spokesperson" to teach me what God teaches me Himself.
    Sad? Nope. Insanity.

    This is just another example of organized religion doing what it can to fan the flames of hate. How sad.
    Just because you can do a thing, it doesn't mean you should do a thing.

    When a christian extremeist kills an abortion doctor, they are labled a fanatic and pointed out to be an extremeist. For not all christians are killing abortion doctors en masse.
    When a Muslim kills someone over burning a Koran, they are labled a fanatic and the entire religion is held responsible. Not all Muslims took to the streets killing people en masse over the Koran burning. It was probably just the fanatics.
