MIAMI — A church planning to burn copies of the Quran on Sept. 11 is ‘definitely praying’ about the controversial demonstration, its pastor said after Gen. David Petraeus warned it would put in danger the lives of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.
In an interview on CNN, Terry Jones, of the Dove World Outreach Church in Gainesville, Fla., appeared to suggest church members might decide not to go ahead with the controversial demonstration.(source)
I do not see how burning the Quran helps the problems we are facing in our country and around the world. While I do support the churches right to burn the Quran because I believe in our freedoms and private property, I do not support this demonstration. All this will do is cause more problems and create a wedge for those who are trying to spread Christianity to the Muslim world. How does burning the Muslim holy book help spread our faith?
