I know this isn’t movie related, but I have to speak upon this matter. I am a Christian by heart. I believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God who died for our sins and resurrected, giving us the chance to live and tell his word. But this is within reason. The literal mission is to have a strong relationship with God and spread his word. That does not mean we enforce it and attack other religions as well as other people.
Now there have been many idiots who do this and have done it before. Many of you remember the protest in which Catholics yelled that soldiers were dying in Iraq because we have allowed homosexuals to vote. Events like these are what give Christians a bad name. Among these events could be the Koran burning by Rev. Terry Jones.
This not only offends people of Islam, it also pisses me and several others off. Because of this asshole, we as Americans and as Christians are going to lose trust among people. This guy has no right to do such a thing and is even breaking the rules that the God he supposedly loves; God never says in the bible to go out and attack other religions or go against the people who don’t follow it. And if you look at all the Monotheist religions, they all have one thing in common: they all believe in God.
Jones has stated that in remembrance of 9/11, he will be burning copies of the Koran. For one thing, it was not the Koran that said to attack the World Trade Center, The Pentagon, and The White House. It was not the religion that said to do that. That had NOTHING to do with it.
So listen up Rev. Jones, if you were a true Christian, you would call this off and apologize to the 1.3 million Muslims around the world. If you do this, you will no doubt start more war, more atrocities, hell there may be another event like 9/11, and it will be all your fault. You’ve taken the word of God and took it in the wrong context, and you are not only making yourself look bad, but you are making Americans and Christians look bad.
UPDATE: Priest has officially called it off.
