Subject: RE: BS: Burning Korans
GregF, it's good to believe in the good of some people:

Counterprotests are planned across the street from the church during the burning. In addition, the Gainesville Interfaith Forum is organizing a "Gathering for Peace, Understanding, and Hope." That event is set for Sept. 10, Friday night, and is open to Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, and all others.

"The message I'm getting is that the vast, vast, vast majority of people believe that we can all get along," says Dan Johnson, minister at Trinity United Methodist Church, where the gathering will be held. He said he's receiving supportive e-mails from across the country.

Dr. Johnson said the centerpiece of the gathering will be loaves of bread from around the world.

Amergin, someone has started just that on Facebook...a call for bible burning...which won't prove a thing. I don't think this is one time where one should fight fire with fire, pun intended.

Gen. Patraeus is warning this idiot will put our troops in greater jeopardy if he does this. The idiot has been refused a burning permit, but vows to carry on. I hope a BIG firetruck aims a great big stream from a giant hose all over him and his fire! It's incredible one little pissant like this can cause such an uproar throughout the world and potentially cause so much strife. What a sick bastard. May his god bless and wake him up!
