  • If the good Pastor Jones is indeed connected to the Phelp's family's Westboro Baptist Church, then there is no ultimate point other than using this well known sensitivity as a vehicle to promote their existance and solicit those who would follow with cash donations to seek them out.

    Interesting coincidence that two of Cape's best-known exports were in the same class.

  • Wow I am impressed with Palin's statement. That might be a first too.

    the backlash is already starting. Sadly it makes people, and wrongly so, ****** at all Americans and not the idiot or handful of idiots who are doing this.

    Hopefully he gets put in jail since he does not have a permit to do the burning. Maybe the church will ban him to.

    It is one thing to do something because it is legal, it is another to be a complete *** about it. On top of that, making so much publicity about it too. One year in cape I was going to burn leaves, completely legal, however my neighbor was having a family reunion and the wind was blowing towards his house. I could have definately burned the leaves as it was my right, but I choose not to. I thought the church was about kindness?

    He requested a permit to hold the burning, and was told that none was needed. That was reported in one of the earlier stories.

    If you can support burning a flag, shouldn't you support burning a book?

    Do you have a link Spaniard for any of the flag-burning supporters chiming in with their support of this Koran burning? I can't seem to find one. I did however, find multiple articles from flag-burning supporters wanting this activity to cease.

  • I never said anything about government involvement, or the book-burning legality. Just whether the LOGIC of supporting one issue should lead you to support the other.

    The logic of the decision behind supporting one, should hold true for the logic of supporting the other. Agree?

    If someone is ok with burning a flag, due to some sort of protest against, although the flag represents a mighty symbol to some -- then shouldn't you be ok with the logic of burning a book, due to some sort of protest against, although the book is too a mighty symbol to some?

    Seems kind of hypocritical to support one but not the other, when the logic behind them is so similar.

  • I read earlier that Obama was strongly recomending that the pastor abandon this "stunt".

    Now if we could get him to do the same with the Muslims regarding building within a couple of blocks of the World Trade Center site, I could see him as asking for equal treatment of both situations. Taking sides in his position is unacceptable. Both actions are legal but inadvisable... he should treat them as such.

    Now I just read where Reverend Jones claims to have reached an agreement with the Moslems to move the building elsewhere and he won't burn the books.

    If that is true and he indeed gets that job accomplished maybe we should ask Obama to step down and let Jones finish his term. Certainly seems more effective. Yeah, I know, it doesn' work that way.

  • Building a Mosque is not insensitive nor an unnecessary provocation. Its a place of worship. If you can't handle other people's religious beleifs, you probably shouldn't be in this country.

    Its funny how people are comparing that to the book burning. I see that people say he shouldn't burn the book, which is true.

    However, I don't see you people say that he should not be allowed to have a church or worhsip as he pleases because he wants to burn the book.

  • Lumber,

    Some days I wonder about you!

    I never said anything about building a Mosque per se. The muslims have ever right to build a Mosque or whatever they have planned on property they own, so long as they meet New York's codes and zoning. It is insensitive to build it at ground zero given the families of the 3000 victims of extremist Islamics that these people refuse to condemn.

    The rogue preacher has every right to burn the Koran if he chooses to do so. It is insensitive to do so.

    And it has nothing to do with my being able to handle other people's religious beliefs.

    Is there anything else I said that you could not wrap your mind around?

  • I really want to know what the burning of the Quran has to do with the building of a new mosque?

    Have any of you ever been to New York City much less ground zero, then you would know 2 blocks really isn't that close. Remember it's not Cape where anything within several blocks seems like its next door. As far as Obama's statments like most on the right it was a no win, if he didn't say anything then he would be ignoring our country and our troops and since he did make a statement he's using his office to interfere. But Palins got to upon her big uninformed mouth!

    If you don't know and cannot figure it out on your own, you probably wouldn't understand if someone did explain it to you.

    Obama has a tendancy to start mouthing off before he has a firm grip on the situation. I certainly do not condone the Rev Jones burning anything sacred to anyone else, but to publicly get up and refer to it as a "stunt" thereby talking down to the Reverend is reminiscent of calling the actions of the police stupid in that little incident that caused the beer summit a while back.

    Wonder if Obama will invite the Minister and the Imam in for a couple of beers anytime soon.

The news of the burning of Quran has been going on for awile it hasn't been until someone in the media linked it with the building of the mosque did everyone here jump on the band wagon. Again have you been to ground zero? do you know how close the mosque will actually be? How do you relate an entire group of peace loving people to a small group of radical extemeist?

    At least Obama know's you spell Quran with a Q not a K.

    The same way the Afghani Cleric threatens to kill any American because of the action of one radical preacher. Here in America, we can write off the ravings of the Rev. Jones as just another loudmouth book-burner. However, apparently, to the Pakistani and Afghani protestors we see on television, this guy represents all of America.

    -- Posted by Shapley Hunter on Fri, Sep 10, 2010, at 3:37 PM
  • Cecut,

    I am repeating nothing I heard elsewhere, I form my own opinions thank you, if that slam about Fox news was supposed to be offensive, try a little harder. Have I been to New York, yes several times. Have I been to the site of the World Trade Center/Ground Zero, no. Do I know what two blocks are, yes I live in a small city.

    And don't give me that crap about a block being different in New York, certainly there are some small differences in the length of a block. I have walked those streets as well as the ones in my own town.

    Further, the relatives of the 911 Victims consider a pretty wide area to be Ground Zero where body parts of their relatives were discovered.

    As I said before, Building the Mosque/Community Center there is within their rights, is it insensitive yes. Burning the Quran is within the Rev Jones right to do so, is it a smart or sensitive thing to do, absolutely not.

    Since you do not seem to be a newbie on here, let me ask you a question, which one of the posters, some that I suspect and others I know, with multiple names are you? Possible Suelynn, or Theorist, maybe Ike/Spaniard?

    Just a hint for you... you may need spell checker worse than I do.

  • Sorry wheels but I am a "newbie" i usually just ignore junk like this, but I've been really bored today! Home sick from work. I know I need spell check but unlike some people i don't spend hours doing this.

    And not all of the families of the 9/11 victims feel building the mosque close to ground zero is reason to protest. in fact several have came out in support of it. They also feel the ones who are using this day for their own potical gain are a disgrace to the memory of their loved ones. This would be palin, beck and several other repulicans.

  • While Sarah Palin's response to this controversy was rather articulate by the low standards she has set for herself, I think a lot of people overlooked a key statement within her response that I find troubling:

    "People have a constitutional right to burn a Koran if they want to, but doing so is insensitive and an unnecessary provocation -- much like building a mosque at Ground Zero."

    In other words, the half-term half-wit former governor of Alaska just equated the act of burning The Quran with the proposal to build an Islamic community center and mosque near Ground Zero in New York. Is it just me, or is one of these acts much more insensitive and more of an unnecessary provocation than the other?

    That anyone could equate building a mosque two blocks away from the World Trade Center site with burning a book- one with utmost religious significance to over 1 billion people in this world- is unconscionable. Palin speaks of the importance of religious freedom, yet she suggests denying that right to Muslims that support the building of a mosque near the World Trade Center site even though there are already two mosques just blocks away, and the proposed mosque cannot be seen from the WTC site?

    Unfortunately, while most Americans would agree that Rev. Terry Jones' plans to burn The Quran are reprehensible, detrimental to our troops, and antithetical to the principles for which our nation stands, they would also accept Mrs. Palin's statement at face value without questioning a statement that is pretzel logic at best and patently offensive at its worst.

    Building a mosque near the World Trade Center site may be quite controversial, but it cannot be equated in any way with the highly offensive act of burning The Quran. All of this anti-Islam rhetoric reflects poorly on a nation that was founded in part by people seeking religious freedom, and it only fuels the intense hatred that radical Islamic terrorists have toward our society and others like ours.

    Unfortunately, the media's role as the fourth estate died decades ago. And all we're left with are talking heads parroting mindless twaddle from a frequently discredited VP candidate's Facebook and Twitter posts.

    But hey, I never thought there would be a Cape Girardeau native more odious than Rush Limbaugh. Guess I was wrong about that!

  • Rick,

    By the way... where is Turnips. Haven't seen nor heard from her for a while. Hope she is doing OK.

    Maybe that 4?? year old has her locked in the basement and won't let her out.

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Sat, Sep 11, 2010, at 2:52 PM
  • Yeah Rick,

    Maybe you could slip her a saucer with some water in it under the basement door. She is bound to be getting thirsty by now.

  • "Wheels" you know there is a difference between a classroom and a forum...right? Your comment to Theorist strikes me as a not-so-subtle way of trying to control a fellow poster. I find that rather sad (and pathetic).

    -- Posted by concerned4all on Sat, Sep 11, 2010, at 11:52 AM

    Suelynn,

    If I were to take your post above and reconstruct it to read as I have below... would you think I was lacking in the ability to correctly interpret what you said and maybe even had a reading comprehension problem? There is not one word in the two sentences below, inclosed in brackets, that you did not include in your post. That is what you tried to do to me. Now go apologize to Theorist because we both know that must have been what you were thinking... RIGHT?

    ("Wheels" you know there is not a difference between a classroom and a forum. Theorist strikes me as a sad and pathetic fellow poster.)

    Maybe you can use this as an example of how to twist someone's words to your class some day.

  • Great Scot, Theorist, In another thread (that horrible Piller fella) I said you were a lady. Please don't make a liar out of me me now.

    Now about love, I don't know about that. I'm not into whips, chains, leather and such like.

    -- Posted by voyager on Sat, Sep 11, 2010, at 7:18 PM
  • Hey, did the Piller thread get pulled because it's gone if my eye haven't betrayed me? Maybe he's been banned? He went over the line.

    Wheels (if that is your REAL name), I think I was pretty clear, but you feel free to take it anyway you want. I have a feeling the point was made and MOST understood, so don't get your panties in a wad! Luv ya!

    Suelynn,

    Sorry if I confused you. The above was what I directed how words can be twisted towards. I never used those two words, in quotes by the way, in the same sentence.

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Sat, Sep 11, 2010, at 8:14 PM
  • Wheels (if that is your REAL name),

    Oh Dear, I just read this again. Suelynn, surely you didn't think I was for real when I said that? No Wheels is not my real name,☺ ☺ ☺ ☺

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Sat, Sep 11, 2010, at 8:53 PM
  • No Dear - I didn't think that was your REAL name -but I believed you when you said you were a phoney. You said that and that you were mad in the same post...I just put the 2 together...sorry if that bothered you. I hope this post clears it up for you. BTW - I'm not Suelynn either (it's just one of the names I use). kisses

  • Girls, girls, for Heaven sakes, do get it right. We fellas don't wear panties. You girls do. Consequently we can not get panties in a wad. Jock straps, maybe, but not parties.

    I'm a lot of things... but neither of the above would be the case.

    Sweetie, I think we both know where my comment was directed and by all the "concern" you're showing, I can tell it got a little too close for your comfort.

  • I wonder why the Reverend Jones didn't just burn copies of 'Moby Dick' or something and say they were 'symbolic' of the Quran. It would have been just as meaningful, and probably cheaper...

    -- Posted by Shapley Hunter on Mon, Sep 13, 2010, at 8:40 AM
  • Rick,

    Yes, he could. I'm being a bit facetious, of course, but technically it would have had the same effect. It would have safeguarded the actual sacred texts while expressing his disapproval.

    I came up with the idea thinking of the Hollywood sympathy events staged for such things as hunger. Hollywood types will hold elaborate dinners in which they eat cold pork-and-beans to show their solidarity with the hungry. It's all about the theatrics, of course.

    Once you toss the papers in the fire, does it really matter what was written on the pages?

    -- Posted by Shapley Hunter on Mon, Sep 13, 2010, at 8:59 AM
  • Hunter's comment reminded me of the courtroom scene in the movie Fried Green Tomatos when the preacher was called to testify and he elected to be sworn in "on his own bible." After his testimony using some "notations in his bible" led to the dismissable of the murder case, we discover he had been sworn in on a copy of "Moby Dick."

    Undoubtedly one of the funniest movies of all time. Especially when the murdered man ended up as Bar-B-Que which the sheriff proclaimed the "best he ever ate!"

    Gives a whole new meaning to the term justice rendered.

    -- Posted by voyager on Mon, Sep 13, 2010, at 9:01 AM
  • That movie was actually the reason I chose "Moby Dick" as the example. It is a good movie, but any book would do. He could even use blank books, if he wanted...

  • BC,

    Is that kind of like the politicians of today who call themselves Democrats and Republicans?

    -- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Mon, Sep 13, 2010, at 9:33 AM
  • Tracing back to their roots, the Democrats sprang from the old Democratic-Republican Party, which was the party of Thomas Jefferson. While claiming to oppose federalism, Jefferson began increasing executive and federal power as soon as he was in office. His duplicity makes him a true standard-bearer for the party that follows him.

    The Republicans trace their roots to the Whig Party, which was comprised primarily of manufacturers, commercial interests, and bankers opposed to the centralizing of power in Washington. Some semblance of those roots still exist in the party, although the party is often dominated by manufacturers, commercial interests, and bankers that want to use centralized power to further their own interests. In any case, the foundation of the party is still evident in their structure today.

    The monikers 'Democrat' and 'Republican' are misleading, methinks, when traced to their linguistic roots, although both democracies and Republics have taken many forms since those terms originated. Solon, the 'Father of Democracy', establish a far different form of government than that which we call a 'democracy' today. It was probably more republican than may republics.

  • Why burn the Koran? If this numbskull preacher had really wanted to render the Muslims an insult of insults, he would had dropped the Koran into as bucket of pig poo poo and stirred and stirred until the book was thoroughly saturated.
