FBI agents visit Florida church over Quran burn
Associated Press ^ | Sept. 9, 2010 | ANTONIO GONZALEZ and MITCH STACY

Posted on 09/09/2010 11:20:56 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- FBI agents visited Thursday with a minister of a small Florida church that plans to burn the Quran on Sept. 11, as public safety became a paramount concern and President Barack Obama added his voice to the chorus of opposition.

Elsewhere, hundreds of angry Afghans burned an American flag and chanted "Death to the Christians" to protest the planned burning of Islam's holiest text.

So, what comes next? Janet Reno [aka Janet Napolinazitano)? Does the military get called in for 'advisory duties'...do MQ-9s get launched, does the BATF make a preparatory house call?

Oh yes and there will be loud protests from Obama, Hillary, Biden, New York Times, Time magazine, and Newspeak about this!

Demands for respect and warnings of “backlash”.

Obama said Jones could be cited only for “public burning” under the “laws we have available to us.”

Could be burn an afghan flag now, or is that illegal for us?

It’s nice to know that burning a Koran precipitates violent acts to Christians! On the other hand, Christians could care less if the Islamists burn the bible!

You tell me who the nutz are!

Islam is the religion of peace right? Except when it’s not!

Elsewhere, hundreds of angry Afghans burned an American flag and chanted "Death to the Christians" to protest the planned burning of Islam's holiest text.

So, the ROP actively does something offensive, because some groups TALKED about possibly doing something offensive? And we are still the bad guys?

.

Did the FBI pay a visit to those responsible for “P*ss Christ”?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piss_Christ

Did the FBI pay a visit to Chris Ofili’s work titled “The Holy Virgin Mary;” a depiction of a black Madonna adorned with elephant dung and sexually-explicit photos?

Did the FBI pay a vist to those responsible for the play “Corpus Christi” was being staged? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corpus_Christi_(play)
Suddenly the cognoscenti is on the verge of the vapors because the Muzzies might be offended.

Use the Queerand in with charcoal briquettes to Bar B Que a whole hog. This way one could protest and go green at the same time, no wasted energy. The Bar B Que meat could then be sold as the anti Queerand meat and eliminate the chance for some government prick charging the preacher for burning refuse without a license.

If the pastors smart, He’ll get out a barbecue grill and roast a pig over the Quran. Nobody in the Gainesville-Ocala area is going to come out and say that a church can’t have a barbecue.

"FBI agents visit Florida church over Quran burn"

This is ticking me off. I don't even agree with what he's doing, but this is not government business.

I don't think they've been to see the guy building the Victory Mosque.

I could see it if someone at the White House called and asked them not to do this; that would be acceptable and wouldn't surprise me. Sending the FBI is clear intimidation and is beyond the pale. Their internet provider has shut down their website; no doubt they got a call from the FBI too.

These are tactics that will be used on us one of these days soon.

Wish I were back on the farm, I could make a YouTube video with my cell phone.

Take our grinder and add corn, soybeans, bone meal, mineral salt and a copy of the Koran. Mix up about 2 tons of animal feed.

Drive to our building, and swing the auger up and into the feeders, then cut to a scene of the pigs eating the feed.

I am at a loss as to why the FBI is getting involved with this, NO CRIME HAS BEEN COMMITED.

They must see this as a DIRECT THREAT to their fearless leader Osama Barrack Hussein (insane) Obama, who is also a Muslime. This pretty well cinches his religious convictions for me.

Here are my American values now.

I didn’t care one way or another before today. Now I think I will take 6-8 sheets of toilet paper, write “Koran” on it, wipe my butt with it, then burn it.

I’m so fed up with constantly being expected to bend over backwards to pacify every other nut in the world, but told to basically shut up.
