Incite

You may have heard the news of Pastor Terry Jones, a coward of a holy man who resides in Florida, who decided it would be a great idea to burn the Koran in a public manner. As to be expected word got out of his attention whoring and the Muslim community in war torn regions have reacted as one would expect.

Pastor Jones denies the fact that he has blood on his hands, of which I agree with. He can't be held accountable for others' actions. True his incident may have incited the riots and murders and his act can be described as tasteless...my God it's hard to defend this jackass. If he really wants to spread the word of the Lord why doesn't he get out of his safe little comfort zone in Florida and fly to the middle east and try and convert? Oh that means he would have to put his life on the line for his religious zealotry. Instead he'd rather insult and defame a world's religion from a country that protects his right to do so without fear of retaliation. At least the Phelp's clan takes their message into public at a high risk. Thankfully the people they offend have shown more reason and kept the debate in civil discourse.

Pastor Jones is just a fool and the Christian community should shame him publicly for being one. I will defend his right to defame Islam as nothing should be above ridicule, but we all have the right to call out his jackassery. Still the people rioting and killing others as a response to this have no business breathing oxygen. Actually, I just hate everyone involved in this.

"It is definitely a consideration to stage a trial on the life of Mohammed in the future." - Pastor Terry Jones

I wish he would leave my hometown area and go to the Middle East as well. A friend of mine saw him in traffic the other day and said it took everything she had to not run him off the road.

That man disgusts me! I refuse to give him any space in my brain, he is dead to me!

Ugh. I'm with you - as much as I find the Phelps abhorrent, they at least live their words (their horrible, hateful, putrid words) and put themselves in the picture. Jones is a cowardly zealot. An oxymoron if ever I saw one.

There was a new documentary on the BBC this weekend about the Phelps, with Louis Theroux. You should watch it (if you can over there) - interesting, if offputting, viewing.
