Right wing Christian militants do not intend to allow Muslim militants to surpass them when it comes to encouraging violence and hate. A Christian group known as the Dove Outreach Center has decided the best way to demonstrate their belief in the ideas of Jesus Christ is to preach hatred of Muslims. They are calling for a world wide demonstration against Muslims that would begin by burning the Koran. “On September 11, 2010, we will burn the Koran on the property of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainsville, Florida in remembrance of the fallen victims of 9/11 in order to stand against the evil of Islamist Militants.” This is an interesting idea. Perhaps, basketball fans in Cleveland. Ohio could gather together every picture of LeBron James and burn them in a huge bonfire as the crowd chants, “break a leg, LeBron, break a leg.” Then again when it comes to evil in the world who can surpass the evil empire of the New York Yankees. How about gathering any document we can find that contains words from George Steinbrenner and we can burn them as we sing songs about blasting to pieces all evil empires.
We inhabit strange times. A group of Muslims commits and evil act and that means ALL Muslims are evil. A Christian nation murders six million Jews and we happily purchase cars from its factories. First, we burned the Koran. Then, we burned the Bible. Then, we burned the Sermon on the Mount. Of course, we committed these acts in the name of God.
