How do you feel about this Koran burning debate?
How bad of an idea is this Koran (Qur'an) burning nonsense? Pastor Terry Jones, an obscure pastor has become a global figure now, due to this International Burn a Koran Day he's called for on 9/11. What positive can come from inciting and incensing 1.57 billion Muslims, or one-fifth of the world population?
This large group of intensely religious people includes moderates, who will be disturbed by the news and who may harbor a mistrust of the Western world as a result. It includes militant fundamentalists, who will seek revenge in the form of murder, and who will inflict more suffering on the Christian minorities within their own countries. And, most importantly, it includes those in between, the borderline Muslims, who can be influenced by the actions of Western peoples and its leaders. And what example does this present Islam, and its Ameri-phobes, who view the US as a nation with imperialistic intentions?
If you are religious, you must understand that hatred begets only more hatred, and is the tool and intent of Satan. By sparking and nurturing a fire fueled by hatred, he can achieve a great end-game strategy, which only leads the righteous to unrighteous deeds in the name of God, destroys God's creation and leads souls to eternal damnation.
If you are not religious, you must agree that negative actions only give a pendulum of hatred the energy it needs to swing back and forth. Love is the only answer, and it can only exist in agreement with tolerance, patience and friendship. This should be understood by Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and atheists alike.
Americans should rise up in force against the Islamo-phobia that is spreading like a new virus strain. It starts with the argument against a World Trade Center mosque, and progresses to the burning of Korans, and ends in a holy war of global proportions. We need to draw a line here. Say no to Koran burning, and instead seek the unity of God's church through the unity of his peoples. Say no to this ignorant act that could not be by the suggestion of any angel except of the dark one.
What say you on:
