    Quite frankly this is disgusting. I understand that people may not agree with Islam, but that dosent mean bigotry, intolerance or hostility needs to occur. They complain that muslim societies are unaccepting, backward and do not value human rights, yet they contradict this in their planned actions.

    At least in Britain we know what is right and wrong. It seems that such Americans are even more backward than the islamic fundamentalists.
    This. So much for Muslims always being the bad guys.

    You can't be serious.

    Yeah, perhaps in Iran but in the UK, the vast majority of muslims dont cause any problems. In fact, most are working professionals, and the minority of Muslim extremists tend to be real life trolls and are given too much press time by the likes of the Tabloids. Even then, most of the protest isnt against christianity, but rather the war in Afghanistan.

    This is a christian institution actively attacking muslims. It is a religious war that illustrates intolerance and ignorance. It has nothing to do with political correctness, not being able to sing baa baa black sheep (which isnt and never actually was banned) etc. Hence why i said that your issues with immigration and PC are not relevant in this thread, mainly because the story is in America.

    Oh I see you go to Manchester Met. No wonder you are rambling and not understanding the context of the thread. Have a read through again and then try to contribute. kthnxbai

    Nope, Too many "Do gooders" in this country reason why I admire the Americans and their 'Don't give a **** attitude' shame we are not like this.
    Do you think if we have more fervent Christians (or extreme you could say) in this country, we’d be “standing up” to islam??

    So if religion didn't exist, what guise would they use then?
    nationalism, racism, sexism... you can place any ism you want in its place... it is human nature to want to feel superior to another group... and most would use any excuse to gain this feeling...

    This sentiment by this church is misguided to say the least, but many non-religious Americans and British feel the exact same way...

    You don't see anything wrong with inciting racial hatred?
    Oh, I do. But to say this is racial hatred is another matter.

    I suppose you could say it would be standing up to Islam, But because goverment seem to find "Islam" a touchy topic along with the public it wouldn't work as if people would be scared of being branded racists if they were to question it's existence in a western country.

    They are free to do this, just as I am free to burn the Bible or any of the Harry Potter books. Freedom of expression and all.

    No - the Americans have a different date system in which the month and day are switched. Stupid I know.

    Sorry, I meant religious hatred. When is inciting religious hatred, in your eyes, too much, if ever?

    I'd join in, although I'd add a Bible and a Torah as well. Always wanted to try molotov cocktails... and what better target than a few piles of inane babble?

    As long as they don't steal the Qurans, I really don't see a problem with this. Is it disrespectful? Yes but that isnt a reason to stop it. I would equally support the right of people to burn Bibles and Torahs or British or American flags.
    Can I burn you?

    Pretty much proves that some of these religions are destructive.
    Where does it command people in the bible to burn books?

    This is not right. Irregardless of anybody's belief, nationality, ethnic origin (and etc), people should still be respected. Respecting others is the only way to gain peace.
