Quran BBQ!

Wow. A planned event must be bad when conservatives and liberals alike condemn it!

"Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, Chair of the Republican Governors Association, condemned the plan by a Florida minister to burn copies of the Koran to commemorate the September 11 attacks on the United States."


Of course I'm talking about Rev. Terry Jones and his Florida church. Apparently these knuckleheads are planning a quran book burning party to commemorate the anniversary of the 9-11 attacks on the United States. Don't you just love religious tolerance?

Of course this is wrong, first you start with books and next they're burning people! But, no one can deny that religion played a major role in what happened on that terrible day in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania. So my question of the day is simple: what does everyone think about this act of expression by some obviously deranged people in Florida? Is Gen. David Petraeus correct in saying that this kind of protest will cause more harm in our efforts to stop terrorism and place our troops in more danger in Afghanistan?

I think it odd that people want to 'burn' things they're afraid of. Why burn stuff? Why not just shred the books, or throw them in the ocean? Does burning something make it go extra far away, or kill it extra dead? Just a funny thing about this whole book burning concept and human nature in general.
