  • NotPanicking A few days ago you and sweet where saying that Muslims have never burned the bible. Will here are some with dates that have.

    We Christians will not kill anyone for burning the bible. But the Muslims have and will for burning their book.

  • Seriously... I do hope you are not comparing what people in other countries do with abuse of freedom here in the US. I'm NOT Muslim, and I'm very highly offended by this Quran burning... Just as I would be were it a Bible... Any decent human would be!

  • FeelinYummy, I hope you're not implying that it is more ok to burn a Bible than a Quran because a Christian is less likely to kill someone afterward.

    Expecting a Christian to 'turn the other cheek' while you bow and scrape to accomodate a Muslim hoping to not cause an explosion is .... grossly unfair and biased at best.

    If you can look a Christian in the eye and tell them 'it was wrong for them to burn your Bible now get over it' you should look a Muslim in the eye and tell them 'it was wrong of them to burn your Quran now get over it'. Anything else is discrimination and inequality ~ and in the US it is also unconstitutional.

  • The Muslims who are burning the Bible are extremists, just like the Christians who are burning the Quran are extremists. Extremists give entire religions bad names.

  • The point is, it's not cool for anyone to disrespect someone else's faith that way. It's okay to make jokes about it, people do it all the time. But to BURN someone's holy book is just disrespectful and basically as bad as a spit in the face if you ask me. It doesn't matter who does it to who. It's not cool. Bottom line.

  • In my humble opinion, I really think that "no one" from any group should be burning flags, books or bibles to get their statements out.

  • As a Chiristian I don't think holy books of any kind should be use for protest or to "make a statement". It's disrespectful, period. The days are long gone when basic human decency is recognizable. Short of a lot of publicity and increased danger to our troops this "display" will accomplish nothing. It's another case of "sure you can, but why would you?"

    One thing is for sure. If you want someone to respect your beliefs you better be willing to respect theirs. You don't have to agree but they have the right to believe what they want regardless

  • Well said Farmlady..

    Look people have taken crosses and put them jars of can find disrespect for Jesus and symbols of Christianity all over the place and internet..and we have to let it be because well this is America right?...So the same goes for Muslims..they have to let it be..anyone can vopice their opinion..freedom of speech..but it doesn't take away the right of the person being disresctful to 'express' themselves..

  • So it is a double standard see.

    Yep - when a blog writes about a mythical Muslim in another country burning a bible several years ago, but has no proof, you jump all over it, and when national news reports on a Christian pastor really burning a bible less than a year ago you pretend it never happened.
