I'km surprised it took this long for that story to show up here. I was
certain snow kid would do it.

One wonders how many other "ministers" are so heavily qualified.
Particularly among the evangelical and pentecostal sects.

Personally, I have no problem with what he's doing. If I did, I'd have
a problem with both freedom of speech and religion. I notices CNN was
carrying clips of arabs burning the US flag, but made no comment on that.
That *is* something that was illegal in the US at one time.

I see no positive future in burning the Koran, or building a Mosque near
ground Zero. Both acts may be within the rights of the individual under
the US Constitution which is all well and good, but there are underlying
currents that will only result in consequences that will cause more
damage than good. I have seen the burning of the US Flag, and Flags of
other countries, but have never seen anyone committing these acts ever
come out on top or win any benefits in their lives for doing so.
Burning a Flag can possibly help with ones frustrations over an issue,
but the act is like expecting 73 Virgins for blowing yourself up. I
look at it this way chuckcar, the world is in better shape than it has
ever been, but at best it's a ****ing mess. <g>

They're not comparable IMHO. There's strip clubs and adult video stores
within the walk to where the World Trade Centers were (sorry, but
phrases like 911 and ground zero have different meanings, so I don't use
them. Besides, they're mostly media constructions anyways).

I didn't say I agreed with what this guy was doing. I merely said I had
no problem with it. I believe in human rights more than a
*lot* of US citizens do it appears.

The fact is the guy is desperate to get somewhere. Neither his furniture
business nor his church are making money for him. Cripes, he can't even
fix the cross on the front. The fact that he's of german origin is bad
however. Mostly for him I would guess. Germany may want him extradited
in the future.

There's more to "what's right", than what's legal. Sure he can
burn those books, but it'll get more troops killed. You're OK
with that?

It's kind of like some of your posts. You read the first sentence,
hit reply and start banging on the keyboard without taking the
time to think things through.

You completely missed my point. If the government or some large enough
organization starts burning books, it's a very bad thing. That's not the
case here. It's some extreme wing of an extreme religion, more
specifically it's leader doing so. As both something to point to what he
thinks (rightly or wrongly) is the problem that led to the Sept. 11th
disaster and to promote his church. Two parts of the same thing really. In
fact Islam was created by a battle in case you didn't know. Muhammed was
expelled from Mecca into the desert, then came back and sucessfully invaded
the city. Name one other religion that was created by an act of war?

In addition, if you watch the people on CNN talking about this guy,
their lack of logic borders on humor it's so bad. Surely there must be a
reason for that? Granted they're not the smartest people in the world,
but that results in the inescapable conclusion that this minister is a
deeper thinker than them.

In addition, there's been studies that show that a large percentage of
muslims as a whole have no problem with what the radical muslims are doing.

Logic has absolutely nothing to do with computer repair. There are
simply ways to know if something is the problem or not that simply
cannot be derived by logic along. Not that you'd be burdened by using
either ever.
