I wonder if there is a lot of sentiment towards making 9/11 a national "Bash Muslims" day? It can certainly seem that way, especially in the wake of the controversy over the Islamic community center being built in Lower Manhattan, as well as the vileness and hatred expressed in numerous polls showing the bigotry is rampant. I'd even be willing to bet that fear and hatred of Muslims is now greater than the previous "most hated" group, atheists.
So, on top of all that cold and prickly vehemence against Muslims, why don't we just throw a little more gasoline on the fire? How ready are you for an "official" Koran-Burning Day?
Now, I have no problem with people expressing their freedom and right to protest, but this seems to be a deliberate attempt to not only mock and deride, but provoke and incite. After all, it's one thing to make a statement about free speech and protesting religious favoritism, like when Dr. PZ Myers stuck a rusty nail through a communion wafer (and trashed a copy of the Koran and Dawkins' God Delusion, too).
Instead, this "church" is promoting this book-burning celebration because they proudly feel that "Islam is of the Devil" and "the Koran is leading people to hell". This sort of blind, bigoted, ignorant and destructive anti-intellectualism simply increases the discord and disgust that most Islamic people feel about Americans, which puts our troops, our civilians and our culture at risk. While I don't believe in any gods, I don't disparage and intentionally insult over 1 billion other humans simply because I disagree with them. I may single out individuals for my scorn and wrath, but I don't extend prejudice against entire nations and groups.
