Holy Smoke

Pyro Pastor Terry Jones torches a Quran in Florida and 20 people die in Afghanistan. It’s a miracle! No, wait, it’s a mob. Here’s General Petraeus:

“Every security force leader’s worst nightmare is being confronted by essentially a mob, if you will, especially one that can be influenced by individuals that want to incite violence, who want to try to hijack passions, in this case, perhaps understandable passions,”

Hope pastor Jones can’t draw Muhammad cartoons.

    This pastor burned the Koran because he did not wish to be intimidated any longer by the threat of Muslim extremist violence. We have to confront this thing sooner or later. Might as well be now. Why is the pastor called a nut for doing this? I think that charge smacks of religious bigotry. Were he not a pastor, would you still call him a nut if he burned a Koran? To say he shouldn’t have done it because we have troops in Afghanistan is also wrongheaded. How long will we have troops in the Middle East? They have been there in a state of war for 10 years now. How long do we squelch our rights out of fear of how these people will respond?

      The Bokbluster Committee for Name Calling frowns on both secular and sectarian book burning. Professor of Pastor, he’s still a nut.

    By the way, note the spelling of “religion” under “categories” above. It should not have two L’s.
