Will Koran Burning Be Banned In The United States?

Why does Petraeus condemn the burning of one Koran?  The U.S. Army has confiscated and burned Bibles in Afghanistan. Where was the outcry over that?

By Allan Wall at American Thinker


As an American in the United States of America, you are allowed to do many things.
You can burn the flag. You can burn the Bible.  You can produce obscene art and sometimes even get government money to finance it.
You can make movies and TV shows that ridicule Christianity, traditional morality, and that take the Lord’s name in vain.
If anybody objects to this, you can just accuse him of trying to impose his values on others. Then start talking about the Salem Witch Trials and the Spanish Inquisition.
Yes, you can do all those things, and more.
But can you burn a Koran?

Yes, but maybe not for long.

Anyway, after the Koran was condemned, it was burned.  So the “world” exploded in hysterical condemnation.

In Afghanistan, especially, rioters felt duty-bound to prove that Jones was wrong to call their religion a violent one.  So they went on a rampage, killed people and burned Obama in effigy.

President Obama, rather than defend American principles of freedom of speech and freedom of religion, put the rioters on the same level as Pastor Jones:
“The desecration of any holy text, including the Koran, is an act of extreme intolerance and bigotry. However, to attack and kill innocent people in response is outrageous, and an affront to human decency and dignity.”
