The prince of moral equivalence weighs in.

He’s only happy when apologizing to Muslims for America’s freedoms.

The Koran can’t be desecrated because it isn’t sacred. Somebody should tell Obamalini.

Obama says desecration of the Quran “is an act of extreme intolerance and bigotry.”

Obama, what then is murder and defenistration?
Beating to death and tearing limb from limb?

Americans are not on a par with these vermin
there is no equivalence.

I pray for the day America rises up and says ENOUGH!

If murder and mayhem is the disproportional response
to koran burning, then let our response be disproportional
too.

ENOUGH!

Obama said ... that no religion tolerates "the slaughter and beheading of innocent people."

Did he just say that Islam is not a religion?

The key thing to note is that Trump has exposed that Barry has rushed around the world to “ kiss everyone’s ass”.

Doesn”t that say something...what brass balls. Love it.

Obama said in a statement that no religion tolerates "the slaughter and beheading of innocent people."

Really? I know a religion that delights in it.

And Afghans rioted for a second day Saturday, killing nine people in Kandahar and injuring more than 80.

Friggin muzzie savages will riot and kill if the sun don't shine. They will continue to be a worldwide threat until we, in war, match their mindset.

How about April 15th, when there are several ‘tea parties’ around the country, we demonstrate our 1st amendment rights by burning the quran in every city in the USA.

That’s great ya erudite poster. I actually had to look that one up.

Freepers are the smartest people on the planet. We should unionize to stop any more defenistration of the baby with the bath water. Erh something like that.

Gotta study the word some more put together some sentences for future use.

I just love reading liberal comments about this story. They use their foul speech to attack the pastor (filthy republicans) and make excuses for the muzzies (this is not what 99.999% muzzies are). If they only knew the libs will be the first ones the muzzies will kill. They are really a pathetic bunch devoid of any moral compass whatsoever. Any action perceived by them as a threat to their power or ability to win elections must be silenced weather or not its protected by that inconvenient thing called the Constitution.

The US government destroys Bibles brought into Afghanistan. So Barry Soetoro has no problems torching Bibles, in fact, orders it to take place, but light up his operating manual? 'Extreme...' (a word we know the DNC Caucus advises to be used freely and liberally in any conversation).
