    It's stupidity to think that burning a holy book will put an end to Islam. As the old saying goes "Give respect and take respect". But I do not want to compete you in disrespecting, hurting others. You will have to answer for your own actions on the day when THE CREATOR of you and me and everyone n everything else ( WHO IS THE SAME) would hold you responsible for what you did.

    All Americans aren't responsible for Quran burners. Don't hold all Muslims responsible for 9/11.

    There is many ways to be famous and well knowing ,To be famous in a good way it takes for ever if you lucky ,To be famous in a bad way you can simply be a serial killer and the whole world will know about you.
    This fanatic priest never thought of the purpose of the existence of a human being why we were created ? He decided to follow the religion of christ but does he know what is teaching of this religion obviousley no it teaches love and care for others and not harm others by burning their book ,I don't mind if he burns his own holy book in private if he thinks it's the right thing to do .So his attention is to get the whole world talking about him ,Buttom line just dump him and do not talk about him because he is so stupid and he only represent himself not the americans .JESUS is inocent from his act and he will burn in hell fire by harming others .
