Tweets About The Dove Christian World Outreach Debate

If General Petraeus is now handing down edicts as to what kind of expression is going to set off radical Islamists in regards to the plans to burn Koran's by one church, is he also going to hand down similar opinions regarding sodomite nuptials and tramps sauntering about with 3/4's of their jiggly bosoms exposed for all to see?

America has a thriving pork industry. Should we give that up also because it ticks off the Muslims?

So is it valid now to argue against sodomite matrimony with the rhetorical invocation that it might "bring harm to the troops"?

Since U.S. troops are endangered by Muslims because there are faiths in America other than Islam, does that mean we should surrender our Christianity as well?

Regarding the threat by the church playing with less than a full deck to burn Korans: in America at least you are free to have as many Korans as you want for any purpose. In lands where Islamists rule, it is against the law to own a Bible and a capital offense to be persuaded as to the veracity of that particular text.

Interesting those concerned about the questionable background of the Koran burning pastor don't get all that worked up over the terrorist links of the ground zero imam.

The Obama administration and liberal media are the ones seeking violence in the afterglow of the Koran pyre. Otherwise, who would know what an otherwise miniscule congregation would be up to? Probably more end up dead in an average Islamic riot than attend the entire church.

In for a penny, in for a pound. Burning the Koran is not the smartest move apologetically. However, if the Florida church backs down now, Islamists will view Americans as weak and will up their demands. Will it get to the point where American military leaders and the likes of Sean Hannity will insist that Christians be castigated for holding to the divinity and exclusivity of Christ?

Seems heathen holy books are of greater concern to Obama than Christian ones. The U.S. military is reported to have burned a number of Bibles confiscated in Afghanistan.

Since the handbook of the Dove World Outreach ministerial training academy is blatantly cultic, perhaps there could be a counter protest where the advocates of religious liberty burn copies of that document instead.

The Pastor of the The Dove Christian World Outreach might actually make a good Muslim. Of those studying (or rather brainwashed) under his tutelage, he dictates how much and where they can eat (sort of like Michelle Obama), how they may interact with members of the opposite sex, and even the kinds and extent of contact they may have with their families.

If deadbeat mobs in the trashpile nations of the earth have the time to rampage over the actions of a single pastor of a small church, they obviously aren't anywhere near starvation so we should cut out the foreign aide.

Am beginning to wonder if the entire Koran Immolation issue is something akin to how the Sith manipulated both sides in the Clone Wars.

Questions regarding the Koran immolation. If the cult purchased the texts they plan to destroy, isn't that supporting Islam with the pocket book? And are the Korans in question Arabic or English translations? If English, the fanatics most likely to fly into a rampage don't even view these texts as actual Korans.

Interesting, isnít it, how the Christians are always ordered to back down. Seldom is their a stern response promised if Muslims get out of line.
