Well, they finally did it! It was talked about last year around the anniversary of the September 11th attacks. The dishonorable Reverend Terry Jones must have lost his mind. Mr. Jones and his church, the Dove Outreach Center, decided to put the lives of U.S. military members in further jeopardy. He selfishly took it upon himself to create a more hostile environment because of a personal crusade. Although he did not commit any crimes, as far as I know, he placed shame upon himself and this great country by his despicable actions. As a man of the cloth, I would think he would know better and have more respect for others. Atleast I thought.
Somewhere, on or about March 20th, Terry Jones and his crew burnt the Quran. The Quran is essentially the Bible of the Muslim faith. Not only did he burn it, he had the audacity to broadcast it online. Apparently, he put the Quran on trial and found it guilty of training and promoting terrorist activities worldwide. Yeah, he's crazy. He blames a sacred Book for the actions of ignorant individuals. Make no mistake, terrorists rank among the lowest forms of life. However, all Muslims are not terrorist. And, it's not the Quran, it's the people that wrongly use it to influence weak-minded individuals to commit horrible crimes. His actions caused an uproar among devout Muslims around the world to include those residing in the United States. In Afghanistan, people have taken to the streets looking for anything American to destroy. In one case, 11 people were killed including 7 foreigners when they stormed a U.N. compound on Friday. Afghan President Hamid Karzai issued a statement that called the incident a crime against a religion. He further stated that it was a disrespectful and abhorrent act.
Yes, other countries have burnt the American flag and worse; that doesn't make what Jones did right. Do stupid things that will cause yourself harm not others. What do you think? Do you agree with what he did? Just because you have the right to do something doesn't make it morally correct.
