I think all churches should burn at least one on Sunday, myself.

I’m starting to be on the side of the Koran BBQ’ers. It is getting rather interesting.

This act is much more faithful to the Truth than calling Islam a religion of peace.

Don't burn it... read it. Michelle Malkin has an excellent piece on it.

Educate yourself on the dangers contained therein. Then you will know what you and your children will be facing.

I’m going to burn my copy of “Don’t Try To Sh*t Me, Mrs. Mcgillicuddy!”

This story is beginning to sound like “I am Spartacus: no, I am Spartacus...”.

everybody should threaten to burn a koran unless obama releases his long form birth certificate!

that’ll put barry in a pickle! and make him look like an idiot!

(spread the idea if you like it). :)

There’s only one thing wrong here: Before the Korans are burned they should be appropriaely baptised with the urine and feces of pigs, rats, and monkeys. Then they should be prepared for burning with a good dousing of bacon fat.

Maybe it could be in a fireplace kinda like those

Remember now folks, first place goes to most humorous

Dress like a pirate! Dress like a muslim!
Wear an Obama mask, Hillery, or Dracula.
Have fun!

Perhaps as many as people as possible should do this on 9/11. If I had one, I would definitely do many things to it before I finally lit it ablaze.

I can’t believe how many news stories I am now hearing about don’t do it, be careful, could make them mad...

SCREW ISLAM!

I won't fault you for your sentiment about that. However, you do realize that in times of strife before, Christians have acted outside that regimen, don't you. Case in point: churches hiding Jews, churches acting against and voicing against abortion, etc.....

So, does the first guy have to share his 15 minutes, or do they each get their own 15 minutes?

OK, how about we burn one koran for every person who died on 9/11.

It's on the anniversary of 9/11, and what a way to show the muzzies we haven't forgotten.

I won’t pay for one of the toilet wipes, but if someone gave me one, I too would burn it, well some of it ... you never know when you’ll run out of toilet paper and need a few pages of the moongoddess’s prophet utterances.

If that Koran-burning is shut down now, even if it's done out of a belated sense of decency, Muslims worldwide will congratulate themselves that Americans were cowed by their zealotry, their stern warnings, their staunchness in upholding their faith. That Americans are easily frightened. That violence is indeed the correct way to get what you want. That killing a few Americans will always pay off. That we are too weak to stand against them much longer. That we have not enough pride to retaliate against them for burning flags. That we know deep down that Islam is indeed the true religion. That we are caving in, bit by bit, day by day.

Our politicians warn us not to enrage them... but they don't understand the danger of emboldening them, encouraging them to demonstrate threats and violence against us. They need to know that our Freedom of Speech is not to be subordinated to the theo-political construct known as Islam. In other words, we cannot give in now. That idiot pastor started us off on a game of chicken and now we have to keep driving. We need to burn the Korans, not to show we hate, but to show we do not fear.

I think the TN church would likely be better served if their pastor did other things in his home, like study the Bible in preparation for his Sunday sermon.

But, of course, you will always have some podunk pastors who do this kind of thing instead and the MSM will be happy to give them national coverage.

I couldn't give a rats behind about the Quran or Muzzies for that matter and I think Islam is more of a cult for insecure men than a religion.

That said, just burn the damn book and not announce it! I'm getting tired of this double standard! We Christians are treated like crap by MSM but, we all have to bend over and grab our ankles for every victim dujour and walk on egg shells as to not offend the wackjob mooslimbs.
