    Wow and wow. Didn't even know the two issues might've been remotely related but hey, it's a crazy world.

    The funny thing was, someone asked me earlier today if I thought he'd call it off or how it possibly could be stopped. I didn't think he would, and I thought the only possible way it could be stopped (and the funniest/most damning) would be if it rained.

    Now that'd be God's decision front and center for ya.

    It's all just a bunch of silliness. I agree, rain would have been perfect.

    Yeah, this is why I have mixed feelings about it all.

    It's a good compromise that eases tensions all around, but this "pastor" was insane and literally espousing hate speech/acts... and gets rewarded for it?

    Arrrggghhh... tough to feel one way or another about it all.

    The entire political spectrum condemns him. The local fire department concludes that his book burning would violate local fire ordinances and would get him arrested and finally he decides, you know what maybe I wont do this.

    WHAT A HERO.

    He could be construed a "hero" because he got the "Ground Zero Mosque" to be moved, though. Plenty of people were against it as well.

    This is D&D material.


    I think the preacher should have burned the Quran and the Mosque should have been built where it was proposed.

    You can bet now that there will some other fool who will want to have a "burn the Quran day", the attention this guy got was amazing, anyone who wants his 5 minutes of fame will love to take a similar stance.

    The result of these decisions will have some ripple effects....

    I hear crickets...

    You are easily the most annoying poster on this site, though Asidd gives you a run for your money.

    Now, back to the topic.

    Glad this isn't going to happen after all.
