    The Smoking Gun ^ | August 7, 2013
    A Floridian who was reportedly “minding his own business, burning a Bible near the side of the roadway,” got into an altercation yesterday with a man who became “agitated” upon seeing the Good Book in flames, police report. According to cops, Mark See, 38, said he confronted the Bible burner in front of the man’s Bradenton home. When See, an Atlas Van Lines employee, “began to pick up the Bible and walk away,” the suspect punched him in the back of the head.
  • U.S. Military Confiscated, Burned Bibles In Afghanistan

    09/07/2010 1:22:42 PM PDT · by Amerisrael · 54 replies
    This comes to mind in light of General Petraeus's warning "against" the planned Koran burning protest by an independent fringe church in Florida. The wrong way to protest.In Afghanistan, where General Petraeus is the new commander, Bibles were confiscated by U.S. military authorities from a soldier and burned last year. That was an absoluely repugnant action. One that every U.S. citizen in this country should have protested and denounced. And why did our U.S. military authorities in Afghanistan do that?-because Al-jazerra reported it's "concern" that the Bibles could be given to Muslims and used to share with them the Good News of forgiveness of sins through Yeshua [ Jesus], the Messiah. The U.S. military authorities...
  • Crawling Out from under the Rauf

    Look what's crawling out from under the Rauf. Without his Albright résumé and subdued dhimmedia running interference, it is plain as day that this hustler, the renowned "moderate" Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf of the Park 51 Ground Zero mega-mosque initiative, is a lowlife. He has been exposed as a rat and vermin slumlord whose tenants live without basic services like hot water. He scammed New Jersey politicians and got taxpayer dollars for rehabilitation of his infested, dilapidated buildings in Union City and Palisades Park, but still his victimized tenants live in squalor. So where's the money? The New Jersey Record...
  • Save the Koran, burn the Constitution--Justice Breyer sacrifices the 1st Amendment to placate Islam

    You can't burn a Koran in a crowded theater, and Supreme CourtJustice Stephen Breyer suggests that to placate foreign extremists, Koran burning might be banned everywhere else in America too. In an interview aired Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America,"Justice Breyer, who is on tour promoting his new book, averred that in the Internet age, speech traditionally protected by the First Amendment may have to be weighed against its global impact. George Stephanopoulos asked the justice about the canceled Sept. 11 Koran burning proposed by Pastor Terry Jones, and whether the fact that people riot in Afghanistan over what happens...
  • What will happen IF Pastor Jones backs down? (Without anti-Constitutional gubmint intervention)

    09/09/2010 12:26:22 PM PDT · by pillut48 · 28 replies
    I already know what is being predicted if Pastor Jones & Co. exercise their Constitutional rights of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion and burn the qurans in Florida: worldwide riots by 'disgruntled yutes', cars being set on fire, embassies attacked, burned, destroyed by those fervent members of "The Religion of Peace". Right. But what will be the consequences of Jones backing down, as Sarah Palin has asked on her Facebook page? Will that be the end of America's Freedom of Speech? Freedom of Religion? Will ANY dissent of Muslim/Islam be allowed (distasteful as we might find that dissent)?...

    Afghans protest Quran burning plan, torch US flag KABUL, Afghanistan – Hundreds of angry Afghans burned a U.S. flag and chanted "Death to the Christians" on Thursday to protest plans by a small American church to torch copies of the Muslim holy book on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks. Religious and political leaders across the Muslim world, as well as several U.S. officials, have asked the church to call off the plan, warning it would lead to violence against Americans. Iraq, worried that it will unleash a backlash against all Christians, has beefed up security near churches.

    Hi gang, nice to be back. Unfortunately, as I describe further in today’s column, it’s like I never left. In the column, I suggest we can assess the silliness of the rationalizations of the Ground Zero mosque by applying them to Pastor Terry Jones’s similarly provocative Koran-burning escapade — entirely legal, but a gratuitously offensive thing to do.But that doesn’t begin to cover how vapid the commentary continues to be, particularly from the commander-in-chief — as President Obama took pains to remind us he is in an interview by George Stephanopoulos this morning.According to Obama, Jones’s “stunt” (a fair...

    KABUL | Tue May 5, 2009 4:15pm IST KABUL (Reuters) - Bibles in Afghan languages sent to a U.S. soldier at a base in Afghanistan were confiscated and destroyed to ensure that troops did not breach regulations which forbid proselytising, a military spokeswoman said. The U.S. military has denied its soldiers tried to convert Afghans to Christianity, after Qatar-based Al Jazeera television showed soldiers at a bible class on a base with a stack of bibles translated into the local Pashto and Dari languages. "I can now confirm that the Bibles shown on Al Jazeera's clip were, in fact, collected...
