Florida Church Forbidden from Burning Quran....
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/Flash.aspx/192492 ^ | August 19th, 2010

Posted on 08/18/2010 10:19:12 PM PDT by TaraP

Florida authorities have forbidden a church in Gainesville to burn the Quran on the anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

If the church burns the Qur'ans it would suffer a financial penalty. This is due to the municipal law in Gainesville, which prohibits the burning of books in public.

However, the church has announced that it plans to burn the books on September 11 in any case.

I bet the Florida “authorities” would have no problem if the church was burning books written by Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Ann Coulter, etc. etc.

The church is private property. It's also a freedom of religion and freedom of speech issue. Burn the degenerate material and let the county try and do some thing about it.

So... Gainsville is officially enforcing Sharia law now... isn’t that just ducky?

How long before that Church gets torched... with it’s entire congregation locked up inside?
That’s an ancient and Islamically sacred Muslim tradition, you know.

If this Church follows through on this (and I hope a collection is taken to pay their fine and property taxes, as we can be sure their exempt status will be promptly revoked) they might want to revert to the old Colonial practice of coming to Church fully armed and post a guard outside at all times, 24/7. Search all new-comers for explosive vests before they get in the door.
Get ready to meet Jesus anyway, because when the mudsquats want to kill you, they usually find a way.

The “outraged Muslim” mob attacks on Churches and Synagogs haven’t started in America as they are common elsewhere the Muslims have infiltrated or conquored... yet. As their relative population grows, however, we can plan on it.
Get ready, America; prepare, Church.
Capitulation and appeasement will not save you.

Florida school district bans Bibles on Religious Freedom Day
July, 1 2010

Maitland-based Liberty Counsel filed a lawsuit Thursday to overturn a ban on Bible distribution on public school campuses in Collier County.

According to the Liberty Counsel, the Collier County School Board allowed World Changers to distribute free Bibles to students during off-school hours on Religious Freedom Day, but now the school officials claim that Bibles do not provide any educational benefit to the students and the distribution should stop...

SO get rid of the Holy Bible and Welcome the Koran?????
You are right just WOW!

What is happening to our Country?

Well if the Church is private property why are they referencing the law about burning books in public? I dont understand why the church is being threatened with a fine I mean to say I undestand why the fine threat is there as in intimidation but it seems as if they do it in private the law would be mute——

“The ‘outraged Muslim’ mob attacks on Churches and Synagogs haven?t started in America as they are common elsewhere the Muslims have infiltrated or conquored... yet.”

Coming soon. Of course, the results in these parts (Texas) won’t be what they’re used to. And we’ll also probably be on the front lines thanks to our useless Southern border (thanks, Goodhair, even though you’re infinitely better than White). Still, they’ll find out soon enough that “Don’t mess with Texas” isn’t just a catch phrase.

Blue states, though? Even after Keller and McDonald, they’re still mostly unarmed victims by law. Esp in churches.

It’s going to get ugly. And bloody. Seas and messes of it.

They are probably planning to do it in the parking lot in full view of the public. The law is unconstitutional on 1st amendment grounds to begin with. The resulting law suite against the county should provide lots of new “material” for the church to burn in the future.

They should have a church BBQ and use it for fuel, to BBQ the pork ribs and so on. Anyone who brings a Koran to burn gets in free.

The American Flag can be burned but not the Koran?

The church should find some old, ragged American flags that need to be destroyed by fire and sprinkle in pages of the Koran.

To paraphrase Andrew Jackson, “the judge has made his decision, now let him enforce it.”

If more Americans took this approach, we’d see fewer losses of freedom. Al Pacino in “And Justice for All” said: “Contempt? I have nothing but contempt for this court.” Do’t we all?

All the cheerleaders of book-burning on this thread are in good company: Nazis, Communists did the same thing.

Yeh, let's burn books --- that'll show them what conservatism in America stands for! Back to the caves!

What American principles are you, supposed conservatives, are you trying to conserve when you advocate and cheer book-burning?

I hate to be the party pooper here, but exactly what does burning the Koran have to do with the Order of Worship in a Christian church? Is this something that we do before the congregational prayer or before the sermon? Does this come after the Eucharist or in place of it?

Heck, I'm amazed that the Church's Insurance Underwriter hasn't called in a panic demanding to know what in heck the Church leadership is thinking.

"If you purchase it it is your property to do with as you wish. Or are you against private property?"

It's like asking, "Well, given that you are against murder, are you, then, against gun ownership."

It's a sad comment on the state of this country that a conservative does not know the difference between what is legal and what is right.

So do you think burning Korans is morally wrong or just politically inexpedient?

"So do you think burning Korans is morally wrong or just politically inexpedient?"

I think that burning books, any of them, is unAmerican. We attack speech we don't like with more speech.

From a completely different angle: attacking Koran (or any other book) is like leftist attacks on guns. You and I know that guns don't kill people; people do. The same is with Koran or Communist Manifesto: neither takes away our freedoms or affects us in any way. What does us damage is people that believe in Koran and/or Communist Manifesto. That is who our enemy is, not things like books or guns.

Today, leftists similar to book-burners of Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia are attacking guns. Tomorrow it will be some other things --- maybe even copies of our Constitution. You and I should take no part of attack on things: not to be in the company of Commies is a sufficient reason. More to the point, focus on things (guns, books) detracts us from focusing on the real enemy (which is why leftists always used that tactic). In addition, when people become used to burning books, it is easy to refocus them on the books they previously loved. (in other words, your favorite books may receive the same treatment some day). That is essentially why bookburning was always considered unAmerican. Apparently, no longer.
