Pastor Terry Jones is nothing but a Christian media whore

So the question of the day is; how do you get people to pay attention to a nothing little church in the state of Florida?  I know declare war on the Quran and say it’s in respect to the people who were killed during the September 11th attack in New York City, do it on 9/11 and start a Facebook campaign.  Obviously Terry Jones is a media whore and to give him proper credit a pretty good one.  He has the entire media world paying attention to his church.   I’ve seen more of him on the news in the last two days than either Obama or Palin and that’s saying something.  The logic is undeniably faulty as first, how does burning the Quran only attack “radical Islam” as he claims and secondly, how does burning the Quran honor the Muslim’s who lost their life on 9/11?

Essentially this guy is trying to sell books, he wrote a book entitled Islam is the Devil and this is a fabulous way to market his work.  He also, and I support this, has the right to burn any damn book he wants under the first amendment.  However, I wonder how he would react to me burning a van load of Christian Bibles in public, oh wait, can’t do that to the one true god’s book.  In the end it’s unfortunate that this person will probably inflame anti-American sentiment and probably get a few American soldiers and possibly civilians killed in the process.  But that’s ok because in the end it’s all in the name of good ole American capitalism so I’m pretty sure Conservative talk radio will have his back.  Capitalism of course always works best when you wrap it in either God or Country!

The Pope has come out against the event but for those of you who don’t know, most evangelistic Christians don’t give a flying shit about the Pope:

    i think he is terrible and full of hate and sorry he calls himself a christian – buring the koran does nothing to honor 911 and only disgraces the people who were lost
