Burning Q'urans in Florida. Where are the first amendment leftists?

I will start off with this. I in no way condone what this church is doing. I think it is the wrong way of going about it and I don't think it will accomplish anything except to add fuel to an already burning inferno.

That said, I'd like to point out that I find it hilariously funny, and all too typical, of the reaction from not just the left, but everybody. Here we have this little known hillbilly Christian church planning to make a statement on the anniversary of 9/11 by burning the Islamic Q'uran. And like clockwork, because it is a Christian church, we have a tidal wave of objection coming from every which way. Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, David Petraeus, Bloomberg, Gibbsy, Angelina Jolie, The Vatican. Everyone is eager to voice their opinion on how hateful and intolerant and *gasp* extremist this church is. Maybe so. But where are all you left wingers now to shout to the world of the wonderful freedoms of the 1st amendment like you so often do? You do it for those who burn the flag. You do it for those that spit on the Bible. You do it for those that want to build a victory mosque over sacred ground. You do it for militant homosexual rights protesters, terrorist detainees, convicted murderers, and illegal immigrants who openly criticize this nation. Where are the rights of this church to burn the Q'uran? Have they none just because they are Christian? If this was a group of atheists burning Bibles it would be "free speech". What a joke.

Like I said earlier, I don't think this is good strategy, but I see absolutely nothing wrong with burning a book that inspires hate and breeds actions that slaughter thousands of innocent people worldwide. It should be done more often.

Free Speech = burning of the American flag, burning of the Bible, placing the crucifix into jars of urine (“art” actually), cross-dressing as pedophilic priests and nuns etc. – all no problem –

But threatening to burn the Koran? = “obscene, dangerous, provocative, appalling, idiotic (Eric Holder), “disgraceful” (Hillary Clinton),

Wait ’till the ACLU hears about this potential restraint of free speech 3…..2…..1….. (cue the crickets chirping)
