Burning Christians

in response to reader comment: Americans wake up to Islamism

The so-called Moderate Muslim community has been protesting about the proposal to burn the Koran. Where were the protests by American Muslims over the burning of Christians in Pakistan and Indonesia? How can Muslims who accept money from the Saudis - one of the most anti-Christian nations on earth - be considered moderate? Does the concept of ethics even exist among Moderate Muslims?

An entire Christian family of eight was burned to death in Pakistan after the local Imam gave the order to do so. They had been accused of burning a Koran - no proof - they denied it. But the penalty for being accused of burning a Koran is the burning death of an entire family, including children.

I no longer care whether there are moderate Muslims or not. If you don't understand that blasphemy is protected expression under the First Amendment, you don't belong in this country. Burning a Koran is perfectly acceptable in America. I would have no problem with your burning a Bible. Especially if you did so as a substitute for burning to death an entire family of Christians.
