I realize that everything is left up to interpretation and some where in the Bible it may say something that can be construed (Or should I say twisted?) so that one would belive that burning a Quran is a good thing but it seems a far fetch for me to belive anything good will come from this. I think the Bible says more about tolerance, forgiveness and cheek turning than it does about spite and revenge. I think there is more to the Quran and the Muslim religion than the bad parts we hear about so often in our single minded media just like there is more to the Christian religion than the good stuff we all hear of so often.
No religion is perfect or so almighty as to hold the right to denounce another. All religions have skeletons in the closet, or in the case of the Christian Church I suppose it would be pedophiles in the closet, and no religion in the world can claim a history free from tyranny and abuse. There is such as thing as a bad Muslim much the same as there is such a thing as a bad Christian. We should all feel sorry for these bad people and do what we can not to make them worse but to make them better than what they are.
The Dove World Outreach Center is wrong for burning a Quran on September 11th not because what those Muslim men did on that day was not horrid but because of the GOOD teachings of the Bible. Christians should pray for the salvation of Muslims and in effect "kill them with kindness" rather than to pick a fight by burning their bible. Burning the Quran on September 11 is an act of
war hatred which serves no other purpose than to fan the flames of religious zealots across the globe.
These people from the Dove World Outreach Center don't care about real religion. They do not care about the true followers of Christ but instead have an agenda to spread fear, ignorance and hatred for the sake of publicity and grandstanding. Do them a favor and include them with all the bad Muslims and other bad Christians whom we should all pray for on September 11th so that we can move on to a day where a tragedy like that can never occur again.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) – A Gainesville church known for its statements against Islam is planning a Quran-burning ceremony on Sept. 11. The Dove World Outreach Center is using its website and social-networking sites like Facebook to promote the event. Organizers plan to burn the Islamic holy text on church grounds. In response, the Council on American-Islamic Relations is asking Muslims that day to invite friends and acquaintances to share educational, fast-ending Ramadan meals and distribute copies of the Quran. The Gainesville church, which also campaigns against homosexuality, made headlines last year after distributing T-shirts that say "Islam is of the Devil."
