UPDATE: The Burning of Koran has been cancelled for now, THANK GOD!
I am not usually political or anything but in this case where a Florida pastor is declaring to burn 200 books of Koran (I found out its basically the Bible for the Muslim people), I have something to say and whether you like it or not, I think it’s wrong.
First of all, there’s no clear purpose to any of this other than burning a bunch of Koran books. Already heads of the U.S. Military are worried sick that this will end up in soldiers killed as a direct result and I don’t doubt that.
Besides that, attacking a whole human race is simply wrong. It’s like when we had 911 couple years back and some innocent Muslim people were killed. It’s like going back to the Japanese Internment Camps.
My main reason why they should not burn the Koran is because a lot of bad chain reaction of events can happen because of it. It’s called Karma and I don’t see how this childish act of retaliating against another culture will help America or the rest of the world.
Freedom of speech is good but this pastor blew it way out of proportion by contacting the media. For crying out loud, he went on CNN to interview and told the world what he was going to do. Maybe he wanted to be the most famous “pastor” in the world for starting World War III. If he did this and he didn’t blow it out of proportion by going on TV, I would have no problem with his freedom of speech but man, we don’t need more wars by flaming other cultures and blowing it out of proportion, no no no!
Besides that, you need to realize there’s probably millions of Muslim Americans out there who are innocent, that is the truth and you can’t deny that.
Anyways, just wanted to say what I feel and I think it’s important that more people know this is wrong and they should do something to stop the event.
Look, I am not a Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, nor anything. I don’t believe in any religion. But I do believe I have better sense of the world than most since I can see “outside the box”, that’s all.
And if you are Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, or believe in any religion, your mind is already “biased” towards your own religion, and I hope that’s the right one.
