On the anniversary of Sept. 11, a Florida church plans on burning copies of the holy book embraced by millions of Muslims. 


"We feel, as Christians, one of our jobs is to warn," said Pastor Terry Jones and author of a book titled "Islam is of the Devil." "The goal of these and other protests are to give Muslims an opportunity to convert."


Dove World Outreach Center's "International Burn a Quran Day" "smack during Eid al-Fitr, the Islamic feast days at the conclusion of the Ramadan fast," wrote USA Today's Cathy Grossman.


" Local Muslims are planning to use the feast as an opportunity to share Islamic traditions and Qurans with the church members and the wider community," Religion News Service reported"We don't want to do anything that would be reactive," said Ramzy Kilic, communications director of the Tampa Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations."

There is no excuse for the church's planned actions, it's mean-spirited and completely against Christ's teachings. Unfortunately, just because one calls themself a Christian that doesn't mean they follow Christ.

If you burn books (including the Bible or the Quran), eventually you progress to burning people.

"Wesley told the early Methodists to gain all they could and save all they could so that they could give all they could. It means that I consider my money to belong to God and I see myself as one of the hungry people who needs to get fed with God’s money. If I really have put all my trust in Jesus Christ as savior and Lord, then nothing I have is really my own anymore."

Isn't it a load of bullsh_t when Christians try to make Muslims "the enemy"? The ones who happen to believe in God and accept Christ as a Prophet?


I met an elder who said gravely, "Islam is spreading, you know."


WTF is with these un-pedigreed fundies? WTF do you need to burn a Quran to prove your religion is right?
