"According to those leaders, the Qurans were burned accidentally..."
This is monumental news-CAIR is willing to accept the truth.
Pork ribs sound good.
How come burning a Quran is a hate crime but burning a bible or a US flag is free speech?
Some people in Blacksburg and at the Roanoke Times are going to be eating major crow
I thought it was an interesting turn of events. Yes, it is surprising that they would agree is wasn't a hate crime.
"How come burning a Quran is a hate crime but burning a bible or a US flag is free speech?"
Or displaying a crucifix in a jar of urine? This is exactly the argument I've been flogging for months. We are living in a truly Orwellian world where two totally contradictory concepts can be simultaneously embraced. And WE are the supposed mind-numbed robots.
Because the burning Qu'ran was found in the parking lot of a Mosque, IIRC.
The Quran should spontaneously combust by itself considering what's in it.
Because you just hate to run out of toilet paper!
WAIT A SECOND!
If the Korans were burned on purpose, it would have been a CRIME???
Someone please explain to me how keeping a crucifix immersed in urine is not a hate crime, how burning the American flag is not a hate crime, but burning a Koran would be?
BUMMER! I'd hope that every koran was burned intentionally.
Yes,someone needs to tell the USA that we do not follow Sharia law, and we do not like this evil pushed off on us.
We have laws in this country. Islam is an evil that we are simply allowing to over take us, and we Americans have no other country to run to. Islam is evil as it can be, and there is nothing good about it. Please do not try to force this upon us.
None of us voted for this Islamic crap in this country.
It is being pushed off on us.
Smear a Quran (Koran, whatever) with Spam (the potted meat product), photogrpah it, and send it out via email "to everyone in your address book".
It takes SPAM to a new level.
