Burning Koran: Florida Church Burns Quran?

A Christian Fundamentalist preacher named Pastor Jones in Gainsesville, Florida, has roused considerable controversy with his 'Burn a Quran Day'. On September 11 he encourages people to burn a Quran in memory, he says, "of the fallen victims of 9/11 and to stand against the evil of Islam."

The tension has been building in the Afghan capital for the past few weeks. On Monday, scattered demonstrations closed down several streets in the city.

This is such a bad idea. The plan to burn copies of the Quran on September 11 show disrespect for our Muslim neighbors and would exacerbate tensions between Christians and Muslims throughout the world.
Do you think this Koran Burning Event in 9 11 is going to cause Muslims to attack the US?

This Quran burning is putting our troops in danger. You can not really blame that Florida church, they are simply exercising their freedom of speech as outlined by the liberal judicial activist judges.

It's a free country, and the right to burn Beatles albums, the American flag, or anything else you want to burn, pollution and fire-hazard regulations permitting, is part of our modern reading of the constitution.

Still, I don't see the point of burning the Quran either way. It's not like that's really significant anyway, since there are billions of Bibles and Qurans out there.

Get a life and grow up. If you burn the Koran, you cannot erase God or erase Islam. So its your choice but you will pay for it one day in the hellfire.

I hope they stop this madness on time.

Currently there are no specific details as to what forms of terror attacks would follow, what is clear is if the Quran burning goes ahead as planned, there could be tragic consequences.
The U.S. State Department has issued a travel alert "to caution U.S. citizens of the potential for anti-U.S. demonstrations in many countries in response to stated plans by a church in Florida to burn Qurans on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."
