Obviously our troops don't need instructions on how to handle a Bible. Besides, 99% of us would be offended with such rules that essentially dealt with the Bible like it was some kind of pagan idol.
At the moment we have a war on and the funny little foreign people who wear bedsheets have to be kept pacified insofar as is possible. Wait until after the war to move further on this problem.

I dont think so. Christians know it isnt the Bible that is the important item its the message inside.
Why great consideration is given to their comic-book, I dont know, but it is an abomination (the act of treating it respectfully).

I am not inclined to wait. This is not just silly, it is dangerous. Civil behavior is viewed solely as a sign of weakness. Our press, as well as our leaders seem to be oblivious to this historical reality.
I need to start complaining now. Loudly and clearly. Before it gets any worse,
If I can just figure out whom to complain o...

There would be no outrage over mishandling the Bible, not to the extent there is over the Koran. Our courts have ruled that nothing is sacred. That's why it always strikes me as odd to see protesters stomping on painted American flags. They obviously think this country has objects of respect the same as themselves. Our highest court rules that we can stomp on and burn our own flag in protest, a disgrace in my opinion. Our courts have ruled that burning crosses and displaying illicit art work are acts of free expression. They have forced public schools to remove our country's founding documents and our Pledge of Allegiance from the classroom because of "religious separation." What's wrong with people who can see our own citizens decapitated and not want to rid the world of these murderers, yet rage over the treatment of a book, only to promote their own political agenda. Despicable. They have no honor. They're as guilty as if they held the knife themselves.

Savage read this on his show today and ended the segment by say "We have officially lost the War on Terror".... unfortunately, I tend to agree.

There is such fervency defending the care of the Koran because that is the only 'evidence of what they believe, but to the Christian it is His spirit that lives in us bearing witness to the truth and who He is. Christ in you, the hope of Glory.

The best way to pacify them is by instilling in them FEAR. TELL EM, if they don't do exactly as they are told we will take their Ko f-ing rans and shove them up a pigs butt and then make em eat it.
This new policy does in no way pacify but emboldens them.
