You've probably heard of that church in Florida, whose members are planning a Koran burning this Saturday (9/11).
They're still planning to go ahead with it, even though Gen. David Petraeus has cautioned that their actions could put US troops in even more harm. Even the White House, who are siding with the Ground Zero Victory Mosque, are calling this "unAmerican." The State Department has even weighed in on this.
For all this outrage from the White House and members of our government, where is their outrage towards another so-called "Church" when it comes to protests outside the funerals of our fallen? That's right! They've said nothing that I can find. But they sure have a lot to say about this "Church" planning to burn the Koran.
Does this mean I agree with the Koran burning? No! It's not a good idea. As far as I'm concerned, this pastor is right up there with the Muslims who are flipping the 9/11 families and America off when it comes to building a Victory Mosque at Ground Zero. They're being insensitive of other's feelings and especially the ramifications for our troops. Sure he has a right to do it, but that doesn't give you automatic license to do it and disregard what is in the best interest for all. I understand the feelings about how Christian symbols are regularly mocked (ie Christ on the Cross in a jar of urine), but this Church should realize acting like seventh century savages puts them at the same level as radical Islamists.
If this Pastor and his so-called "church" want to burn something on 9/11, may I suggest burning an effigy of Osama bin Laden instead.
