This big hullabaloo with the Koran burning seems to be right on topic for this blog. Three guesses where I stand. :)
What in the flaming hell are these bastards thinking?! Of course, it's all about publicity, the ultimate vanity. The ultimate vanity in the name of God. Talk about using the name of God in vain! (That's what that means, btw. Not randomly shouting "JESUS CHRIST!" when you hit your finger with a hammer. In fact, since Jesus's dad was a carpenter, I find it oddly appropriate.) Using God, using Jesus, to further your own vain cause, is a violation of the very spirit of the commandment. It's sickening. And of course, that's what they're doing. They're trying to drum up publicity for their church, by being actively evil. They're going to get a lot of innocent people killed (there goes 'thou shalt not kill'), and it'll be on them entirely. Well them and the fucking media for carrying this clusterfuck. Seriously. If the MSM would just shut the fuck up about these little fringe groups and their stunts, no one would hear about them and they'd go away. Not to mention, they'd keep a lot of soldiers and other innocent people safe.
By burning the Korans, they know they'll inflame the radicals to violence. Then they can say, "Look how violent they are!" But the radicals that would kill people in the name of Allah are no different from the radicals who would show up armed at a Koran burning so they can "protect" Christians from protesters. As Boris said at The Galloping Beaver, if this was an armed Muslim group, they'd be branded terrorists. Of course, he's absolutely right!
Using the Koran to promote hatred, to justify killing people for any reason (including that vile case in Iran that Dawg explained so well) is evil. Using the Bible to promote hatred, to justify killing people for any reason, is evil.
God is Love. God doesn't hate. Not anyone. Not for any reason.
