"You know, if the media all ignored him this would be a non-story, which it actually is."

In many ways I agree. BUT... it's the possible aftermath of his actions, the consequences of what he does, that will not be a non-story if they come about.

Now he must know by now what he is entering into? He cannot be unaware now that his actions risk a great deal and that it is quite un-Christian to do as he proposes?

People have been imprisoned by America without due process where it has been levied that many lives could be at stake. I am not for people being imprisoned without due regard to their rights so maybe they could place this man in 'safe custody' until after the date has passed? Could there not be an argument that to do as he proposes is so dangerous, and to be aware of the potential harm to even himself, then perhaps mental health laws could be invoked? To deliberately do what he suggests has to be down to some mental health issue or as a deliberate incitement to cause harm to others?

There has to be some hope he can be stopped? Or, maybe, Muslims could turn a blind eye to his attempts to cause such offence and hatred? If they could make a statement that they will ignore his actions then he has nothing at all to gain?

I know... I am living in dream land, but one has to hope that common sense prevails somewhere and that this man does not go through with it
