US pastor burns Koran again

Controversial US pastor Terry Jones has burned more copies of the Koran and a depiction of the prophet Mohammed to protest the imprisonment in Iran of a Christian clergyman, The Gainesville Sun reported.

The newspaper said Jones and another pastor, who carried out their protest in front of their church in Gainesville, Florida on Saturday, demanded the release of Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from an Iranian prison.

Jones said Nadarkhani faces execution.

According to the report, the Pentagon urged Jones to reconsider, expressing concern that American soldiers in Afghanistan and elsewhere could be put at greater risk because of the act.

In March 2011, Jones' assistant, pastor Wayne Sapp, burned a copy of the Koran and broadcast the ceremony on the Internet.

The images incited violence in northern Afghanistan, in which at least 12 people were killed.

Later, a man wearing an Afghan border police uniform shot dead two US military personnel.

About 20 people attended Saturday's burning, the paper said. Several Gainesville police officers were stationed across the street from the church.

Moments after the ceremony, the Gainesville fire department issued the church a citation for violating the city's fire ordinances, the paper noted.

Something American Muslims need to keep in mind...

The very same fundamental freedoms and rights that let this tool burn Qurans are the exact same freedoms and rights that let you practice and preach your Islamic religion. Got to take the good with the bad that comes with it.

First Amendment, people, First Amendment!

The problem of course is not American Muslims. 8 innocent people died and all this moron seems to be concerned with is capitalizing on Islamophobia to attract more parishioners.

"Jones, a hotel manager turned missionary, already caused international outrage last year by adopting a zealous anti-Muslim stance and burning the Koran. In response, thousands of Muslim demonstrators poured into Afghanistan’s northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif and stormed a UN compound, killing eight UN staff employees. The violence went on for days, and the head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan said the only person who could be blamed for the violence was the American pastor."

He might get off with it in the US, but he's a disrespectful bigot. And even if you're an atheist you can't surely condone what he's doing? All it's going to do is distance the American Muslim population from the rest of the country even further.

While he has the 'right' to burn a Quran (or any other holy book), I just think it ignites more hatred against the United States from Muslim countries. Also, I do believe he is putting the lives of American soldiers in even more danger. ( I know somebody said "get the soldiers out of there then" etc, but as of right now - the soldiers are where they are, and it does not look like it is about to be changed at the moment. Also, this just creates even more of a barrier between "Americans" and [American]-Muslims. I see no good resulting from this except him gaining some attention (and in turn reminding everybody in the US about the bad Muslims and their religion), and if some media attention is his priority, than wow, what a f*cking idiot.
